WATCH: Beauty Report: Backstage at Rosa Cha
By Kate Sandoval | 09/14/2010 - 17:15

At Rosa Cha (the queen of super-sexy Brazilian bikinis), MAC makeup artist Nadine Luke played off the “birds of paradise” fashion inspiration and created a vibrant two-toned blue and orange eye. Her pro tip: By layering the blue eye pencil and blue cream eye shadow (both in a shade called “Cyan”), the color won’t budge—even under hot runway lights.

After the fashion faux-pas at the Emmy’s, Naya Rivera made a Glee-ful comeback at the premiere of her hit Fox show’s second season. Smooth, romantic waves pulled over one shoulder replaced the beehive-and-bangs style, while a pretty pink cheek and lip (softer than the bold red lip she tried before) gave Naya a pretty, youthful glow.
