Makeup and Hair Tips
By following simple makeup and ahirstyling tips,
you can recreate this Academy Award nominee’s winning look.
Actress Salma Hayek has come a long way from the small town of Coatszacoalcos,
located in the state of Veracruz, Mexico. Born on Sept. 2, 1966,
she is part Spanish and part Lebanese—a pedigree that undeniably
accounts for her exotic beauty.
Salma launched her acting career in her early 20s, appearing
in a number of Mexican tele-novelas (soap operas). She first found
an international audience when she landed a small part in Mi Vida
Loca (“My Crazy Life”), a 1993 film about Latina girls
growing up in a poor Los Angeles neighborhood. She eventually
garnered supporting roles in Desperado, Road Racers, Four Rooms
and Fair Game, before achieving superstardom with When Fools Rush
In, Traffic, Once Upon a Time in Mexico and her Oscar-nominated
tour de force, Frida.
The length of Salma’s hair allows her great versatility:
long (either sleekly straight, curled, or adorned with accent
braids); shoulder length, with sexy flipped ends, embellished
with hair jewelry or the occasional flower; pulled back into a
graceful topknot or chignon, defined by a center part; or slicked
back to accentuate the symmetry of her refined bone structure.
Salma’s hair is one of the most luxurious shades of brown.
Colorist Jaime Abraham of Looks Salon in Naperville, Illinois,
believes such deep, natural tones are one of the hottest trends
this year. “I don't know if you've seen Salma Hayek’s
hair recently, but a lot of the stars have really rich, dark hair,”
she told The Chicago Tribune in July, noting that stars like Salma
tend to set the stage for the rest of us.
Perhaps Salma is the best judge of her own style, which may account
for her fascination with the iconoclastic Frida Kahlo. The 1920s
were sexy “because they were a time of experimentation and
self-expression,” she told In Style magazine in September
2003. “All of a sudden, women were independent and speaking
up. They were flying airplanes, directing and painting. The ’20s
were also a time of sexual freedom; even the makeup and hairstyles
had romance and glamour. Clothing was chic, and makeup highlighted
the eyes, which are the windows to your soul."
Many beauty experts have dissected Salma’s look in their
upscale books. In Latina Beauty, Belén Aranda-Alvarado,
a former beauty editor for Latina magazine, describes Salma’s
makeup as a palette of shimmery neutrals:
For the face, begin with foundation and concealer
to even skin tones and cover any blemishes. Avoid using powder
(unless your skin is oily). Mix dark contour powder with blush,
and apply to cheeks.
- Eyeshadow should be a neutral pink or pearl, with a slight frost,
applied from the eyelid to the top of the brow bone. Blend in
a touch of silver shadow for contour, as well as a shimmery white
shadow on the outer two-thirds of the brow bone to play up the
Curl lashes and apply mascara.
- Brows should be tamed, but retain their thick, natural arch.
Lips are also neutral—a brownish-pink,
without the severe penciled-in outline to which so many women
seem addicted. Add a clear gloss for shine.
In The Mane Thing, celebrity hairstylist Kevin Mancuso teaches
readers how Salma’s thick and curly hair can be sensually
straightened. The cut is one length, with layers around the face.
After shampooing, conditioning and towel-drying hair, you’ll
find that the process couldn’t be easier:
Apply straightening gel to damp hair, and
comb it through. Detangle, as necessary.
Section the hair, pinning it atop the head.
Blow-dry from the bottom layers inward, gently pulling on each
section with your brush to straighten it.
Repeat for all sections of hair, saving
the top for last.
After hair is dry, apply a small amount
of silicone, and brush hair to enhance shine.
Use a flat iron for finishing.
With the Frida prosthetic unibrow long gone, Salma is now the
face of Avon, appearing in the global beauty company’s new
My Lip Miracle television commercial. She will be featured in
numerous print and TV ads for cosmetics and fragrances, also partnering
with the nonprofit Avon Foundation to publicize its domestic violence
“Salma's personal story and values are a perfect fit for
us, and we have a shared commitment to the empowerment and well-being
of women,” says Avon Chair and CEO Andrea Jung.
“I’m very optimistic that in joining forces with
Avon, we can truly make a difference to the important cause of
domestic violence and bring hope and empowerment to women around
the world,” Salma adds.
Look for Salma in Paint, Robert Altman’s comedy-thriller
that skewers the backstabbing New York art gallery scene, to be
released next year.
