Dr. Drew Ordon: We are back with celebrity make-up artist Alexis Vogel, who's going to share a couple of her secrete, make-up tips on Bree (ph).
Alexis Vogel: Okay, actually the first one we are going to do is on eyes and so that woman can learn how to give the cat eye and give a eye lift without surgery, very inexpensive. They can buy fake lashes at the drug store and cut them in half and just take the little corner. This is how easy it is to apply a false eyelash. Look at me, I mean it takes two seconds you can do it to yourself, and go ahead and look.
Dr. Drew Ordon: What a difference!
Alexis Vogel: Now seriously look at that how -- it like lifts the eye and gives it a beautiful shape. Then we are do like a little tip on how to get the glowy, beautiful, dewy, simmering glowing cheeks for summer or actually any time.
So you take a blush brush and you apply them on the apple smile, I will just do the one side, you put blush and you want to get kind of a peachy apricot with some gold. You always want shimmer. Shimmer loves light and light bounces off and it gives you that really glowy beautiful effect.
This is the trick. Everybody always wants that kind of J LO glow and everybody always asks me all the celebrities, how do you get that look. So you put your blush on and don't you stripe; you just kind of make a little, kind of a mess. You go all over the place with it and then you just take your finger, just kind of a round and just kind of buff it so it's seamless. This is the fun part. By shimmering they have lot of shimmering lotions for cheeks. Here is the trick, after the blush, smile, you just gently tap it on, and this is also what I did to Roxanne for the photo shoot and you just kind of tap it, just like finger, it's kind of like a finger painting.
Dr. Drew Ordon: She is shimmering.
Alexis Vogel: To give hair lots of volumes and waves and have it the kind of sexy and not just flat and straight, if you want to do something fun and different, and you shouldn't just like get fixed up just to go out. Do it for yourself sometimes, it just makes you feel really empowered, and really good and strong and sexy. So this is how you do it, then I am going to take this side out. This is unstraight hair. You take any section that you want, hold it for me, and then you spray the section. It doesn't have to be, you just twist it like that and then you take the roller, and you get the ends, and you just wrap it. And you keep twisting and wrapping like that.
Dr. Drew Ordon: I am going to need a clip. I am going to help you. I am here to see. I could be a new career.
Alexis Vogel: You are so nice, thank you guys. It's a little awkward. Look at you! You go!
Dr. Drew Ordon: Very impressive.
Dr. Travis Stork: How long does it going to have to stay in?
Alexis Vogel: If you do it before your make-up, maybe 20 minutes. The longer keep it in, the longer the curls are safe. You do keep it an hour but put in before your make-up and all you do really, it's like this simple. You just shake it out with your fingers, you don't ever want to brush it, because it will just fall, it just gets prettier and prettier, prettier.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Fantastic.
Alexis Vogel: So it can be either totally straight or you can get that effect.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Let's give Bree a round of applause. Thank you Alexis, thank you Bree. Great job!
