How to Turn Heidi Klum’s Jessica Rabbit Costume Into an Actually Wearable Beauty Look

Intent on making 2017 your Best Year Ever? We can help with that, thanks to our 2017 Coach of the Month series. For May, Heidi Klum and her beauty team break down how to get some of her most memorable hair and makeup looks—with minimal effort, to boot.

Okay, fine, Klum’s fabulously over-the-top Halloween look from 2015—Jessica Rabbit—might not be a look you want to copy to a T in your everyday life. But with a few adjustments, when you take it down a couple notches, it becomes a sultry nighttime look. After all, Heidi says, “Jessica Rabbit’s the epitome of an iconic sexy woman!”

Meanwhile, Linda says: “Go for it! But only at night! Jessica is the epitome of everything female. Her ‘more is more’ iconic look can be translated to a night out with a few tweaks. Purples are the new neutral. Check out “Tisse Cambon” from Chanel or “Bloodroses” from Kevyn Aucoin. We use the classic liquid eye liner for a more feline finish, though this seemingly simple line can cause many headaches. I find the best way to apply is in two stages, with two products, and then add individual false lashes as the icing on the cake.

Step 1

First I ask my client to look directly at me (you would look directly into the mirror). With a pencil, I place a very faint marker dot on the outside of the eyes where I’d like to land the end of the line, just before the flick.

Step 2

Then with eyes closed its easier to see how thick and how angled the line can be. Gently pull the skin at the temple away from the eye to flatten the skins surface and line the eye with a fine line. Next step, loads of mascara.

Step 3

Now apply the liquid: Dior or YSL have great easy to use liquid liners, or if you prefer a gel, Nars, using the finest flat brush you have, you may at this point like to thicken your line, prepping for the flick at the end.

Step 4

Jessica chose a red lip but perhaps a stain for this look maybe more modern and chic, Chanel “Marthe” or “Camen” or Vincent Longo cheek and lip stain.

The 5-Step Guide to Heidi Klum’s Nude Lip, Smoky Eye Combo

Intent on making 2017 your Best Year Ever? We can help with that, thanks to our 2017 Coach of the Month series. For May, Heidi Klum and her beauty team break down how to get some of her most memorable hair and makeup looks, with minimal effort, to boot. Here, Klum and her makeup artist, Linda Hay, revisit one of Klum’s most flawless looks of late: the smoky eye/nude lip combo she wore to the Grammys in February.

For the 2017 Grammy Awards, Heidi Klum went rock glam with sultry, smoky eyes and an ultra-mini quicksilver dress. She’d do this look for a fun date night, too—the subtle lip keeps makeouts lipstick-worry free. Heidi loves the look, because as she explains, she likes to accentuate her eyes rather than her lips: “I don’t have luscious Angelina Jolie lips, so I do a big Bambi eye: lots of lashes, top and bottom. And a lot of shading, to make the eye really big.” Here, Linda Hay, Heidi’s makeup artist, explains how she get it done:

Step 1

As always, I began with Mario Badescu Buttermilk Lotion, it’s light and easy and sits nicely under makeup.

Step 2

Next I corrected with my favorite Kevyn Aucoin concealer, it’s a heavy coverage concealer but is easily feathered when used with the moisturizer… I love that it gives me the choice. Then I applied Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation, for some light coverage but keeping the skin fresh.

Step 3

Next the bronzer, Nars “Laguna” and “Casino” duo, using a large brush I gently apply under the cheek bone, the jaw line, and at the temples. Then I apply Tom Ford’s Illuminating Powder “Moonlight” using a smaller blush brush to the tops of the cheek bone, the bridge of the nose. Don’t want to overdo either of these, the eyes should be the star here.

Step 4

For a classic smoky eye I use a mix of black pencil with various shades of browns, this way you achieve a smoky eye, not a raccoon. I begin by lining the top eye lid and inside the entire water line with Charlotte Tilbury “Rock n Kohl” pencil (this is one of the few pencils I’ve used down to a nib, you have time to smudge it but it will set and stay put later, very cool).

Then line the bottom lash line with a lighter brown pencil, “Teddy” from MAC. Smudge and feather both top and bottom with a dark brown, Dior’s “Cuir Cannage.” Take a medium brown into the crease and the lightest brown to the lid, the highlighter to the inner corner and under the bow.

Next I added two layers of mascara to the top and bottom lashes (don’t be shy). After which you can tweak.. maybe you need to reapply the black pencil to the waterline? Maybe the darker shadow could be extended out to give a more cat like look? Perhaps the bottom eye shadow line could be softened and thickened by feathering with a light brown. I always hold back until after the lashes are in place to do finals, best to add than subtract.

Step 5

For a nude lip, Charlotte Tilbury’s Nude Kate is delish!

The 5-Step Guide to Heidi Klum’s Sleek, Summery Makeup Look

Intent on making 2017 your Best Year Ever? We can help with that, thanks to our 2017 Coach of the Month series. For May, Heidi Klum and her beauty team break down how to get some of her most memorable hair and makeup looks, with minimal effort, to boot. This particular one of Heidi Klum’s glam-night-out looks, the red lip and sleek bun combo, screams confidence. Here, Heidi Klum’s makeup artist Linda Hay shares her time-tested tips to getting the lookshrinking violets need not apply.

“This look is a classic for spring or summer: it’s chic, fresh, and polished!” Hay says. “The thing to be aware of with this look,” she cautions, “is to keep everything very sheer and dewy, with a hefty lashing of mascara so the red lips pop.” As for Klum’s own tips? “To keep your red going all night, start with a stain, and then put another color on top of it,” Klum says. “So even if you kiss that off, or drink that off, or eat that off, there’s still the stain underneath.” Below, Hay’s step-by-step breakdown:

Step 1

I always begin with Mario Badescu Buttermilk lotion. It’s light and easy and sits nicely under makeup.

Step 2

Next I applied a little Laura Mercier “Radiance” Foundation Primer to the skin, for a sheer glow. For this look I use the primer in lieu of a foundation… I don’t know if it was designed to be used that way but I love it by itself. If you prefer more coverage, go ahead and add some of your favorite foundation to the mix, being sure to keep it light and airy. Charlotte Tilbury concealer around the eyes. A dot of Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick #22 to the apple of the cheek.

Step 3

The eye shadow is kept to a minimum for maximum freshness. I used the two lightest champagne colors from Tom Ford’s “Nude Dip.” The lightest highlight under the brow and the inner corner of the eye. The slightly darker color is applied like a wash over the lid and through the crease.

Step 4

For dramatic silent film-star eyes, I swear by this Shu Uemura lash curler, followed by generous lashings of DiorShow Black Mascara, at least 2 to 3 layers, top and bottom.

Step 5

For the lips I used a Jungle Red lip pencil from Nars. I like to very slightly overdraw the lips—meaning go outside the natural lip line—when using darker colors to compensate: darker shades almost always give the illusion of slightly smaller-looking lips. Cover the lips with the pencil to reduce the chance of bleeding, deepen the pigment, and to extend the life of your lipstick. Then I fill them with a matte red. I like “Rouge Improbable” from the Nars’ Sarah Moon collection. Or Ruby Woo from MAC is my other go-to matte red.

Get Heidi Klum’s Voluminous, Easy Waves in Just 5 Steps

For a look versatile enough to fit in at a beachside cabana or backstage at your favorite band’s next concert, go with waves so voluminous and easy that even Klum’s mastered the photo-ready look herself. Here, her hairstylist Wendy Iles explains how she gets the look.

Step 1

I start with damp, shampooed and conditioned hair, then I apply my Iles Formula finishing serum section by section all throughout. This serum is great: It has added heat protection to keep her hair from damage from heated tools and also protects against humidity—not to mention that silky lustrous texture it delivers. I just love that on Heidi’s hair.

Step 2

Using a medium size round brush I start blow-drying at the nape, moving upwards to the top sections. I like ionic brushes that prevent static and I use a Dyson hairdryer.

Step 3

I use a Babyliss hot curling tong—it’s ionic to prevent static. I roll the hair from the front with vertical sections toward the back; about five sections on each side from center front to center back. I keep the sections big as I don’t want curl, just slight movement. And I keep the sections clipped until the hair has cooled back down.

Step 4

Once the hair has cooled, I drop down the hair from clips without combing or brushing. For now, I allow the hair to organically fall into place while her makeup is being done.

Step 5

Taking a comb—never a brush, and actually mostly my fingers—I shake Heidi’s silky locks into place. With a small amount of Iles Formula finishing serum in the palms of my hands, I wipe over the outer surface of Heidi’s hair to settle down any “fluffies.” Boom. Her hair is instantly camera-ready.
