Pretty Little Liars star, Shay Mitchell, exudes summer cool on the July cover of ELLE Canada Magazine. Her tousled waves and tangerine lip have us yearning for the California coast. Hairstylist Aviva and makeup artist Jeannia Robinette are behind Mitchell's beauty story. Below we have their styling details; from matte lipsticks, dry shampoos and the body lotion Shay just had to keep for herself!
MAKEUP/ JEANNIA ROBINETTE (@jeanniamakeup)
INSPIRATION: We shot the ELLE Canada cover at the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica. It's the original hip Hollywood getaway hotel (pre-Chateau Marmont). It was really cold that day but Shay is such a pro and so awesome. The makeup inspiration was all about surfy, beachy, sexy beauty. The great thing about Shay is she has such a strong look that you can put any makeup on her and it will translate.
LIP: I knew I wanted to do a bold and powerful lip. I used NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Roman Holiday (hot pink) and Pop Life (bright orange) to get the look. I remember putting the pink on her and thinking "You gotta be kidding me! She can literally wear anything!"
Jeannia's Tip: Bright lipstick is a huge trend for summer but the bold hues can be a little scary for some. Try experimenting with your favorite colors in sheer glosses if you're not ready to take the matte lip plunge!
FACE: I used Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation to keep the rest of her face glowing and luminescent.
SKIN: I used my secret weapon, Mario Bedescu's Summer Shine Body Lotion. It smells like the beach and everyone I work with falls in love with it. I ended up giving Shay my bottle to keep. :)

HAIR / AVIVA (@avivaperea)
INSPIRATION: Shay has gorgeous long wavy hair and the vibe for the day was laid back island glamour!
PREP: I prepped her hair with Oribe Royal Blowout spray which is my personal favorite product that I pretty much use on all of my clients. It gives the hair gorgeous shine and helps to keep the frizz away! We shot at a hotel by the beach on a unusually foggy day so this product was a life saver.
VOLUME: I then added a little biT of Dove's Style + Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse to the roots of her hair and hit the roots with the blow dryer for lots of volume!
WAVES: Then I took one inch sections of hair and sprayed Oribe's Heat Styling Spray from roots to ends and then curled in opposite directions using my favorite curling iron which is the T3 SinglePass Whirl Professional Styling Wand. I let her hair cool down and then shook out the waves with my fingers.
TEXTURE: For extra texture I mixed Dove's Invigorating Dry Shampoo and Oribe's After Beach Spray. The starch from the dry shampoo helped to keep the hair voluminous and the beach spray added shine and crazy great texture!

We're loving Brit Marling's red carpet look for last night's The East premiere in Los Angeles. Sporting the ever-popular black-and-white trend, Marling chose a sleek Balenciaga pantsuit to hit the red carpet. Her bold lip and soft waves added even more polish to the tailored ensemble.
Starworks Aritsts hairstylist Laini Reeves created the actresses chic waves. We have styling notes below...
STEP ONE: Apply a small amount of Moroccanoil to hair for shine, beginning at the roots.
STEP TWO: Using a 3inch curling iron curl the hair. [SIDE NOTE] It's important not to curl at the root, start about 4 inch away from the scalp. This stops any root lift and keeps the hair flat and smooth.
STEP THREE: When the hair is curled take a soft, flat brush and brush the hair through to the side to soften the curl into a wave.
STEP FOUR: Strengthen the wave by using hair clips at the front of the hair. Spray a light hold hairspray to hold the look into place then remove the hair clips.

Michael Shannon for XOXO - May 2013.
Michael's stature easily lends itself to suiting and his complex nature and the often intense characters he plays are easily referenced. But he has an incredible sense of humor and playfulness too that not always obvious in a photography. Whenever we work together I'm always conscious to have some whimsical options, mixing traditional styles and textiles with colorful accents and patterns. I never want the wardrobe to get too serious.
For the cover of XOXO, Michael wears a wool plaid 3-piece suit by Tom Ford, a barrel cuff dress shirt from Eton of Sweden and the Foulard Big Paisley tie by J.Press.

Sofia Vergara for Cosmopolitan Magazine - June 2013.
This was a dream come true! I've been obsessed with Sofia Vergara and her incredible hair for years so I had to pinch myself when I got the call that I would be working with her and it would be on a COSMO cover with MATTHIAS VRIENS-MCGRATH, I mean, add a wind machine and you have the perfect storm needed to reach hair heaven!

GET THE LOOK
SKIN: I started by prepping the skin with La Mer Moisturizer.
EYES: I applied Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Shadow in Ice to her eyelid, from the lash line to the crease. I used YSL Ombres 5 Lumieres in 4 Lilac Sky, I mixed the dark purple and the medium purple and applied it over the cream shadow, blending it into the crease and upward. I smudged the dark purple shadow along her lower lash line as well. Then I applied two coats of Lancome Definicils Mascara in Black. I added a few individual lashes from Ardell using Duo eyelash adhesive.
FACE: I applied Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation in Sunny Beige. Then, I used Dior Skin Radiance Booster Pen in Candle Light 002 under her eyes. For blush, I applied Josie Maran Cream Blush in Sunset to the apples of her cheeks. Once her face is ready, I set the skin with Shiseido Translucent Pressed Powder. Then I brushed on Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush in Exposed over the cream blush.
LIPS: I applied Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in 79 Plumetis.

TRIPLE THREAT! Hairstylist [Marcus Francis](http://www.starworksartists.com/hair/marcus-francis/portfolio/ Marcus Francis") recreates three of Kerry Washington's winning red carpet looks. (ELLE)
Whether it's the perfume she wore, the way she styled her hair or the quick flick with which she applied her mascara; a mother's beauty routine is often one of the fondest memories passed down to her children. With Mother's Day approaching, we asked our Starworks Artists to reveal some of their mother's style and beauty tricks that they still embrace today.
My mom definitely set me up for success as a hairstylist. When I was a kid, my sisters and I all danced. And in order for us all to be "ready to go" the day of a recital, my mom put me in charge of putting in the rollers. But to be efficient, we did them the night before. So, after everyone had bathed and the hair was towel dried. I rolled up a bunch of pink sponge rollers in all 3 of my sisters hair! At the time, I had NO idea that that would set the tone for my current path. I've been hairstyling since I was kid, thanks ma!

My mom taught me the importance of caring for my skin. She showed me how to moisturize my face when I was only a few years old, by making small dots with moisturizer then blend upwards. She made sure I never forget to do the same with my neck and hands. My mom said a woman should never reveal her true age and her neck and hands, without being taken care of, will be the two places that may spill the secret.

My mother taught me to love unconditionally, to always believe in myself and treat others how you want to be treated. I can’t think of what better defines my personal style than that.

My Mom has been insisting I wear 'a little lipstick' all of my life, probably even before the age at which it was appropriate to do so. She knows I love the feeling (not the look) of having my hair brushed, so I'll sometimes concede on that. Its also quite normal for me to wake up from a nap at her house and find that someone has put lotion and socks on my feet. So, Mom, thanks for being so lovingly creepy, you make me a better woman.
- Fashion stylist Nicole Vitagliano
What my Mom taught me was to always make the effort. Though she never wore full makeup but NEVER left the house without putting on lipstick. A little league game, grocery shopping, whatever...she had lipstick on. For me this has translated into taking an extra second before I leave to assess how I look, add some eye drops, change my shirt or throw some pommade in my hair. Always make the effort. U never know who you'll run into.
- Makeup artists Stephen Sollitto
I definitely owe my creative and visual sense to my mother. She is an amazing artist and sculpted stone for many years. I recently put together how similar styling hair is to sculpting. Her ability to see the beauty in most things, and creating shapes out of a blank canvas has always and will always be an inspiration. My mother is a true artist, through and through, i can only strive to be that as well.

My mother had the most inspiring vintage style. I think it speaks for itself. (Photos featured above)

I always sat and watched my mom get ready when she went out... her beautiful red hair, make-up and clothes were always impeccably put together. I remember asking her why she spent so much time getting ready, she answered, "If you take time for yourself it will always show." I try to remember this always...
- Hairstylist Laini Reeves
My mom has always had classic style with flair.... She loves the Burberry Scarf and Trench, the Chanel Jackets and Ballet Flats but she ALWAYS added her own touch....Shoes with faces (like the marc jacobs mouse, or the YSL lips), or wearing a fur with her hair done in corn rows.... she always had a sense of humor and was clearly always doing her OWN thing. This made her fun, it made people around her smile and of course taught me fearlessness and fun in fashion. Thanks MOM! HAppy Mothers Day!
- Fashion stylist Kris Zero
My mom is actually quite understated with her personal "style" and some would even call it plain. She always told us to treat others how we want to be treated. She also would say that it's not how a person looks or how much money they make that's important, its their heart. That to me is the most stylish and beautiful thing my mother has taught me. Xxoo
