As expected, the ladies of SATC2 turned it out on the red carpets in the fashion department. But we were equally impressed by their varied hair and makeup looks, so we got the scoop from a few of the experts who have been creating them. “Kim Cattrall and I both love a change and wanted something fresh that would move and be doable for her in real life,” said her Sex and The City 2 hairstylist Ryan Trygstad, who was also responsible for the blunt bangs and bob the star debuted yesterday. “We looked to Katie Holmes and Christina Aguilera for inspiration.” As for Cynthia Nixon’s flawless skin, makeup artist Matin has been turning to two products throughout the press tour: Orlane Creme Royale Eye Contour, a luxe cream flecked with 24-kt gold which he uses to highlight her cheekbones, and Sampar Eye Rule, a cooling rollerball that refreshes the skin around the eyes with a blend of peptides. Keep up the good work, boys!
