Can you believe The Voice is about to crown a new winner tonight? Time really does fly!
Team Blake's Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott and Team Cee Lo's Nicholas David have already proven why they deserve to be the final three left standing — and what a long way they've come.
For our last edition of "Get The Voice Look," we've asked the show's hairstylist, Shawn Finch, and makeup artist, Darcy Gilmore, to weigh in on how they made these normal everyday people transition into superstars.
Cassadee — Breakout Moment Song: Blake Shelton's "Over You" / Duet With Blake: Sheryl Crow's "Steve McQueen" / New Song: Faith Hill's "Cry"
HAIR: "She dazzled with straight shiny smooth long hair with added extensions pressed straight with a flat iron," Shawn tells Life & Style. "Crystals were attached to a strip of her hair for ornamentation and bling, yet we maintained her unique two-tone blonde and red hair coloring from the start."
MAKEUP: "We started with a dewy moist foundation and used a slightly lighter than skin tone concealer under her eyes to make them brighter then set with powder," Darcy tells Life & Style. "We applied a shimmery brown shadow on the lid of the eye and worked it up into the crease. Next, a matte brown shadow was used in the crease — if you're recreating this look, make sure there are no hard edges. Using a dark brown pencil, we lined under the eye, but left it a little open at the inner corner. Using the same shimmery brown shadow, we softened the under liner. Applied a shimmery copper to the center of the eyelid."
Darcy continues, "To create a rounder eye shape, we used a strip lash that is longer in the center of the lash. Next, added thin black eyeliner to the top lash, along the lash line. Then lined the waterline of the eye with a white pencil, and with a shimmery nude powder, highlighted the inner corners of the eyes. Finished with mascara on the upper and lower lashes. We defined the brows with a pencil or brow powder and applied a blush that is a soft pink or rose color, then highlighted the upper cheekbone with a light shimmer. Finished off by using a sparkly mauve lip-gloss in a longwearing formula.
But if you want to get Cassadee's "Cry" look, that's a different story!
"We used a small damp eye shadow brush and applied a metallic gold shadow to the eyelid, focusing the concentration of color in the center," she shares. "Added a copper shadow under the eye to mute the dark brown liner. With a gold glitter eyeliner pen, we dabbed along the inner corners of the eyes and onto the lid. Then we swapped the lip-gloss for a nude one with sparkles. Finishing touch? Added more highlight on the upper cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose."
Terry — Duet With Blake: Aerosmith's "Dude Looks Like a Lady" / New Song: Mister Mister's "Broken Wings" / Breakout Moment Song: Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is"
HAIR: "Terry's hair got shorter over time and I made him blonder over the last few weeks, but wanted to maintain his fringy rocker style from his beginnings," Shawn says. "Terry's fringe is so perfectly Terry- edgy, cool, confident, yet his skin tone really needed the warmth from the lightening of his hair color. And though skeptical in the beginning, he has enjoyed the new look. The screaming girls around the live performance all seem to love it too."
MAKEUP: "For Terry's grooming, we started with a BB cream with primer, then applied a mat velvet foundation in two colors as base and contour," Darcy says. "We used invisible powder all over to set it and insure no color change. We then treated his skin like a beauty makeup, which is needed for TV due to the HD cameras and lighting. We used a duo purpose matte powder down the bridge of his nose and the top of his cheekbones, then a mat bronzer to contour nose, cheeks and under jaw line. We topped off his features with a taupe eye shadow on lids and under his lower lash line. Brown waterproof mascara only on the top lashes and blue eye drops for his tired eyes."
Nicholas — Duet With Cee Lo: Wild Cherry's "Play That Funky Music" / New Song: Jimi Hendrix's "Fire" / Breakout Moment Song: Bill Withers' "Lean On Me"
HAIR: "Nicholas' hair got much shorter this last week. I lightened his ashy hair color and went more golden blonde with it to make his blue eyes pop — but maintained his full signature beard from the beginning," Shawn shares, adding, "Though we also used a flat iron on his beard and hair to make it less unruly, more controlled and shiny."
MAKEUP: "First, we gave him a witch hazel wipe down that is gentle since Nick only likes using as much natural products as possible," Darcy tells Life & Style. "We even used a tinted moisturizer on his skin and knocked back any blemishes with mineral duo purpose corrective palette. Then we set it all with a good quality mineral setting powder. That's it! Simple! Less is more."
And there you have it! That's how these three stars in the making looked so fabulous last night.
