It's no secret that when the L'Oreal muses attend an event, they steal the show with their enviable sartorial choices and effortlessly beautiful hair and makeup. And while the 2016 CFDA Awards celebrates the most talented innovators in the fashion industry, Get The Look is celebrating some of the most noteworthy beauty looks on the L'Oreal muses at last night's event.
Supermodels Karlie Kloss and Irina Shayk opted for messy top-knots that allowed us to swoon over the bows, ties, cut-outs, and plunging necklines that accompanied their gowns, while Doutzen Kroes went with a familiar sleek, wet-hair look that she's been known to pull off on a few previous occasions.
And amidst a sea of top-knots, au naturale waves and wet-hair, L'Oreal muse Alessandra Ambrosio offered a fresh perspective on a style we all know and love: sleek, straight hair! The brunette bombshell paired her purple sequin Michael Kors Collection gown with Christian Louboutin heels, and let her flawless locks sit atop her shoulders, showing off sparkling earrings that matched her golden eye shadow.
GET THE LOOK: SLEEK STRAIGHT HAIR
To achieve Alessandra's pin straight locks, start off with freshly washed hair. This will give your hair a sleek, shiny appeal. Once your hair has been dried (naturally or with a hair dryer), section it off into two parts – top and bottom – and secure the top section with an elastic.
After heating up a flat iron, spray your hair with thermal protective spray before you start. Next, proceed by straightening the bottom section of hair, piece by piece. Once you've completed the first section, release the top section of hair from the elastic, and repeat.
You should now have a full head of perfectly straight hair – but you aren't finished yet! Using a fine tooth comb, push half of your hair back, creating a horizontal part on top of your head. Next, use a soft bristle brush to back comb the back section of your hair. Use the same brush to soften it out, and ensure there are no flaws.
Next, spray a fine tooth comb with hairspray, and use the comb to part the front section of hair down the center. Brush each side down to create a sleek, flawless finish, and tuck the hair behind your ears, allowing the back section to flow atop the front.
Finish off by spraying your entire head with a shine enhancing hairspray, and there you have it! You're red carpet-ready like Alessandra!
To achieve Alessandra's natural makeup with slight golden touch, start off by unifying your complexion with an illuminating BB cream. This will keep your makeup fresh, light and glowing.
Use a bronzing powder and brush to sweep colour across your cheekbones, temples, chin, and nose, creating a slight sun-kissed summer glow.
Next, move on up to your eyes, and use a black liquid liner to draw a thin line across your top lid. Coat your top lashes with mascara for added drama.
To achieve Alessandra's golden look, start off by sweeping a light brown shadow across your lower lash line. Continue with a shimmery gold shadow, and dab it thoroughly into the inner corners of your eyes for full effect.
Finish off by coating your lips with a nude or clear lip gloss to keep all attention on your shimmering lids!
