At the recent 2016 amfAR New York Gala on Wednesday, February 10th in New York, NY, model Adriana Lima stunned in a crimson Marchesa dress. To complete the look, celebrity hairstylist Jennifer Yepez crafted a fun updo in the shape of a bow, while celebrity makeup artist Morgane Martini created a sultry, smoky eye and nude lips.

“For tonight, Adriana was wearing a beautiful red Marchesa dress and it had a detailed bow that had to be seen," said Yepez. "So, to show it off, we decided to do an updo and, as an homage to the beautiful dress, we made a bow with Adriana's beautiful long hair.

  1. “To get this look, prep damp hair with Nexxus ProMend Heat Protecting Mist," continued Yepez. "Begin spraying mid-shaft down to the end. Then use Kerastase Mousse Bouffante, applying from root to end.
  2. "Then, rough-dry hair and use a flat brush or a Mason Pearson to get it nice and flat/straight.
  3. "When you finish blow-drying the hair straight, make a center part with your tail comb. Once you have your center part, spray Kerastase Laque Couture to the front of the hair, making it nice and sleek. Then, with your Mason Pearson brush, pull the hair back into a ponytail.
  4. "Once you have your ponytail, section it into two sections. Take your first section and comb it through to where it's very sleek. Then, use your hairspray and spray the section until it's completely wet halfway down. Then, use your blow dryer to dry the hairspray, keeping the section very clean, tight and together.
  5. "Once it’s dry, make a loop with this section to start your bow. Use an elastic band to secure the loop.    
  6. "Once you have secured the first loop, repeat the same on the next section. Make another loop and secure the loop with an elastic band. Now you have two loops, like a bow.
  7. "Take a small section from the pieces that are hanging down and wrap it around where you see the elastics - that way you cover them and it looks as if you only used hair to make the bow. Wrap hair around the elastic to cover it and use small pins to pin the hair in place.
  8. "When the bow is made, use your flat iron to straighten the two loose pieces hanging down from the bow-tie. This will ensure they are super clean and sleek. Then use Nexxus Oil Infinite on the two ponytails that are hanging down from the bow to make it super glossy and nourish the hair on the ends.
  9. "To finish off the look, spray Kerastase K Gloss Appeal all over the bow and on the top to give it a beautifully polished shine."

“We decided to do a sultry, smokey eye to go with Adriana’s gorgeous red dress," said Martini of her makeup inspiration.

  1. “I started the eyes using  Maybelline Eyestudio Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon in Grey Crystal all over the eyelids to create a base for the smokiness, then I blended 3 eye shadows from Maybelline’s The Rock Nudes Palette to create that nice blended smoke," said Martini. "I made sure to keep it lighter on the inside corner of the eyes, darker on the crease, outside corner and bottom of the lashes.
  2. "I finished the eye look with the Maybelline’s The Falsies Push Up Drama mascara in Blackest Black on the top and bottom lashes. I groomed the brows with  Maybelline’s Brow Drama Pro Palette in soft brown.
  3. "On the skin, I applied the new Dream Velvet Foundation by Maybelline with the Maybelline Dream Blender Foundation Blender and set it all with Maybelline’s Facestudio Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Powder. Then I used the FaceStudio Master Contour to enhance the cheekbones and highlight the face.
  4. "I moisturized the lips with Baby Lips Lip Balm and applied a touch of Color Sensational Lipcolor in Daringly Nude with my fingers lightly to keep it subtle and soft on the edges.
  5. "To finish the look and keep it in place all night long, I sprayed the face with Maybelline’s Master Fix Setting Spray."
