Liam Dunn and Elisabeth Rohm Do Award Season
Liam Dunn designed a pair of beauty looks for "American Hustle" actress Elisabeth Rohm, who had a red carpet-filled weekend.
For the Critics' Choice Movie Awards, Dunn looked to 1940s screen siren Veronica Lake for a style statement that would complement Rohm's gown. "I carefully applied Oribe's Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse starting at the roots, paying particular attention to the ends," explained the hairstylist and makeup artist. "I finger-dried the hair leaving some of Elisabeth's natural waves; then, taking horizontal sections, I curled the hair with a one-inch-barrel curling iron and set it with pins."
He picked cosmetics to keep with the forties vamp theme – including Chanel's Rouge Allure Intense Long-Wear Lip Color in Exaltée, Lumières Facettes and Les 4 Ombres eye shadows, and Joues Contraste powder blush in Pink Explosion – and brushed out her hair, creating a strong side part. "Using Oribe's Smooth Style Serum, I tamed any flyaways and a spritz of Superfine Hair Spray held it all in place for the entire night."
The Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday evening called for "a soft, modern-romantic style with a lot of texture" to match Rohm's Marchesa dress. "The moment she put it on, I knew I would put her hair up," Dunn remarked. After curling sections with either a 1/4-inch or one-inch-barrel curling iron, he worked through some Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream to add definition to her waves. "I then secured her hair in a low ponytail, leaving out the side and top portions, and twisted it into a loose chignon. I wound the side pieces toward the chignon in a random fashion and secured the top pieces away from her face." He added bejeweled pins and set her tresses with Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray.
Rohm's makeup was again by Chanel: Rouge Double Intensité Ultra Wear Lip Color in Coral Crush, Le Crayon Yeux in Khaki Doré and Ligne Graphique de Chanel in Platine to line eyes, and Les Tissages de Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect.
