Beach Babe Hair & Makeup tips by Univision’s TOP Makeup Artist, Franz Munoz

I’m a lucky gal these days! On Thursday, July 17th, I got to enjoy an exclusive behind the scenes peek for the much anticipated Univision’s Premios Juventud where I saw artists like Juanes rehearse and presenters such as Alejandra Espinoza getting ready with the magical touch of Univision’s top makeup artist, Franz Munoz. Franz shared his inspiration and “how-to” steps using the L’Oréal Paris and Urban Decay products necessary to replicate her naturally beachy sun-kissed look.

Alejandra wanted a natural, yet polished, look. Franz used warm colors on her, including a light plum liner on eyes, coral on cheeks to give the look of a natural flush, and soft rosy lips to give a bit of contrast with her sexy green ivory bathing suit cover-up dress. The final look was a beachy, yet very sophisticated and elegant.

   

MAKEUP STEP-BY-STEP:

STEP 1: Create a perfect canvas using L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher  as a skin primer to give a nice dewy, radiant complexion

STEP 2: Gently dab the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Golden Beige to contour. Blend in with theL’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Caramel Beige   to create a sun-kissed caramel glow. No powder needed to keep the look fresh and dewy.

STEP 3: For the eyes, apply the darkest shade from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Absolute Taupe  over your entire eyelid and the medium-colored one in the crease. Use the lightest shade from L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Perpetual Nude  along your brow bone. *Secret tip: Franz added a bit of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter in Goldmine(to make the makeup more llamativo

STEP 4: To highlight the eyes, first add a winged line above the upper lash line with a fun summer green shade from L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in True Teal .  Beneath the lower lash line use the L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Pure Purple  as it’s a perfect color for daytime that plays well with tan to darker skin tones.

STEP 5: Apply two coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Black  to the upper lashes

STEP 4: On the apple of your cheeks, lightly dab the blush from Urban Decay’s NAKED FLUSHED in Native for a natural flush and highlight the cheek bones and nose with its built-in highlighter.

STEP 5: Create a polished glossy lip using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipcolour in Rose Melody 

 HAIR STEP-BY-STEP:

To compliment Alejandra’s sexy green dress, Franz created voluminous beach waves to accentuate her sharp cheekbones. Alejandra wanted something simple, yet fresh.

   

STEP 1: Start off with dry hair. Spray a bit of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray at the roots to give it more texture and volume.

STEP 2: Separate your hair into four sections and apply L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray directly onto the areas you will be curling (about from about 3 inches down from the roots and 3 inches from the ends).

STEP 3: Place a 1 inch to 1 1/4 inch barrel curling iron about 3 inches from the roots and wrap medium sections of the hair around the barrel. Be sure to stay away from the ends.

STEP 4: Continue around the head until all hair is curled.

STEP 5: Finish the look with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray  for a glossy, frizz-controlled finish

*TIP: To achieve a ombré similar to Alejandra’s new hair color, use the L’Oréal Paris Feria Wild Ombré in Medium to Dark Brown 

* All products are available at LOrealParisUSA.com and at mass market retailers nationwide
