This season of the Real Housewives of Orange County marks Tamra Judge's 10th season on the show. In proper Housewife style, Mrs. Judge celebrated by getting a nip and tuck on her lower face. She also debuted a fresh new look on a rooftop edition of Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live. Although Tamra was showing off her new jawline, we were more mesmerized by her beachy hair and glowing skin. How did she achieve such a gorgeous look? Her amazingly talented team, celebrity stylist, @Julius Michael (owner of Julius Michael salon) and makeup artist, Priscilla DiStasio created Tamra's stunning look (check out exactly what Priscilla used in the photo below.)
As Tamra explained on the show, she didn't really chop off her long locks, instead she was testing out a gorgeous faux lob created by Julius Michael. If you're interested in creating a similar look at home, two of PRIV's professionals are here to offer some tips on how to achieve the look created by Tamra's glam squad.
Achieving boho waves:
Step 1: Shampoo and condition hair with a moisturizing line. I prefer Alterna's Caviar Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner.
Step 2: Blow hair out with round brush using your favorite volumizing mist and heat protectant spray. I prefer Alterna's Caviar Miracle Multiplying Mist and Caviar Multi-Vitamin Heat Protecting Spray.
Step 3: Section the hair into three sections.
o Section 1: From nape to occipital bone
o Section 2: From the parietal ridge to the occipital bone
o Section 3: Top of the head
Step 4: Starting in section one, split the hair into four even subsections about 1-2" wide. Use a 1.25" wand or Marcel iron and curl the hair around the iron leaving out about 2" on the end. Spray each section with Alterna Caviar Working Hairspray. Starting on the left curl the first subsection away form the face, then curl the next section in the alternate direction. Continue alternating the direction of the curls for the remaining two subsections.
Step 5: Drop section two and continue the same alternating curls as in section one. (The front subsections above the ears should be curled away from the face.)
Step 6: Drop section three and find the part. Curl the hair away from the face taking 2" vertical sections. In the crown use triangle sections.
Step 7: Brush fingers through the curls and finish with a shine spray. I prefer Alterna's Caviar Infinite Color Hold Topcoat Shine Spray.

Achieving a fresh face:
Step 1: To achieve a glow like Tamra's, skin preparation is a MUST. Start with your favorite lightweight, but hydrating moisturizer. I keep it simple with Cetaphil. For added hydration follow with a few drops of a facial oil, like Tarte's Maracuja Oil. Ensure your makeup is flawless by using a primer right for your skin type! If you run oily, use a mattifying primer; if you've got redness, try a primer with a green hue. I love Smashbox Cosmetics range of primers, they've got all your bases covered.
Step 2: Tamra's look is full coverage but not cakey! Try an HD liquid foundation that's water based, like Veil Cosmetics' Sunset Skin. Spread the foundation on your face and neck using a flat foundation brush. Apply a creamy concealer (one or two shades lighter then foundation), like Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer, underneath the eyes, down the center of the nose, and few dots on the middle of forehead and chin. Take a damp Beauty Blender and buff out the foundation first, followed by the areas with concealer.
Step 3: Time to highlight and contour! Since this is a bronzy, summer look, use a matte, powder bronzer like Benefit's Hoola Bronzer to define those cheek bones and frame the face. Using a fluffy, angled brush, like Sigma Beauty's E40, begin the application underneath the cheek bone, as close to ears as possible, blending down the hollow of the cheek. Be sure to apply bronzer underneath the jawline and around the hairline too. Soften any harsh lines with the same damp Beauty Blender used earlier. Use a small, tapered fluffy brush (Sigma Beauty's F35) to apply powdered highlight (such as Makeup Forever's Pro Light Fusion in Golden) slightly above the apple of the cheeks, blended up to the high points of the cheek bone. Be sure to dust some down the center of your nose as well!
Step 4: Tamra's sparkly, smoky eye begins with defining the crease using the same bronzer we used to contour the face. Blend the powder along the crease, using a small blending brush until there are no harsh lines. Apply a deeper, chocolate brown to the outer corner of the eye, at the base of the crease and blend out. Then apply your favorite sparkly eyeshadow across the center of the lid down to the lash line. Keep it a neutral tone, similar to Tamra's champagne hue. Line the upper and lower lash line, as well as the inner water line, with a deep black kohl liner (try Marc Beauty’s Highliner). Take a smudging eye brush, like Nars #45, and carefully blend out the lower lash line by moving the brush side to side. Using a small shading brush (MAC 228), dust the same deep brown shadow used on the outer corner of the eye, underneath the lash line. Finish the look with several coats of mascara (and any falsies) on the upper lashes.
Step 5: Finish the look by lightly filling in brows with a powder or tinted gel, nothing too harsh for this summery look. Use a pink-nude lip pencil all over the lips, like Makeup Forever's Aqua Lip Liner in 23C, and top with a clear gloss. Unless your skin is very oily, don't use a finishing powder, as this look is best with a dewy, glow.
