nsm Beauty: how to get the Charlize Theron hair and make-up look at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards!

Any excuse for a red carpet beauty how-to right now! Let’s think bright and sunny, à la Charlize Theron at the recent MTV Movie Awards …

Proof that naturally wavy hair can be tamed super-smooth for a night (but perhaps not in a British downpour), here’s how to get the look, in the words of Charlize’s hair stylist on the night, Enzo Angileri.

How Enzo Angileri styled Charlize Therons’s hair for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards

•  I first applied Moroccanoil Light, and added a small amount of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream, since we started with Charlize’s naturally wavy hair. I use this cocktail to instantly enhance the quality of Charlize’s hair and give it an incredible lustre.

•  Next, I blow dried the hair smooth with two round brushes, a medium one close to the roots for more grip, and a larger one on the ends.

•  When the hair was almost dry and using the medium sized brush, I sprayed sections close to the head with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong, to lift them a bit and to hold the style from underneath, to make the look even more natural.

Nonstopmama beauty tips

Love Charlize’s understated, natural-but-sparkling make-up? When going for a nude lip look, take a tip from pro make-up artists and take a little of your foundation/base over the lip line first, before applying a nude lipstick or shine. This tip works well, too, when you’re wearing colour on the eyes and want to balance the look – and keep it fresh and modern – with a natural, ‘non’ lip colour.

Moroccanoil products are available in the UK at selected salons nationwide, for more info and your nearest stockist, go to moroccanoil.co.uk.
