Emily Blunt Goes All Nude, Sort Of

Whoever said neutrals are boring hasn’t seen these photos! Emily Blunt posed for the LA Times Magazine, eschewing color and going with fierce earth-toned makeup. And while I’m not usually a fan of skin-toned clothing, this works. Do you love? Oh, check out more super-hot Emily photos, after the jump… Keep reading »

Beauty-Obsessed Travelers, Listen Up!

Frequent fliers (and fashion folk gearing up for Paris, London and Milan shows), this post is for you. A new website, 3floz.com, recently launched, and basically, it’s a site selling only products that are three fluid ounces or less! As their tagline says, “For those who travel, those who are curious and those who can’t commit.” And I’m not talking the usual drugstore stuff—founded by beauty junkies Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz, they sell Dr. Hauschka, Go Smile, Malin + Goetz, Ahava, DDF, Philip B, etc. etc.—beauty brands you actually love to use. Take that TSA! Good idea, right? [3floz.com] Keep reading »

DIY Your Own Paint-Splattered Shoes—Save A Bundle

Who needs to spend $795 on this pair of Alexander McQueen (RIP!) lace-ups when you can easily DIY ‘em for a teeny amount of money (not to mention a decent amount of fun!)? So, here’s how to do it: Dig up your old pair of bucks or lace-ups from back in the day (or for those who didn’t go through a massive tomboy phase, like myself, buy a cheapie pair here or here!)—any color will do, extra points for the ones with the red soles! When scouring for the perfect shoe, keep in mind that suede, in this case, is a very good thing (the paint will really stick to it!). Then get yourself some paints: I like fabric paints the best, like these. Pick four colors you’re into; reserve one to use as an accent color (meaning you won’t use too much of it). Check out the way the dark blue was used (sparingly), above. Either outside or in a space you don’t care about, get splattering! [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »

Beer-Flavored Lip Gloss Is Very, Very Real

The video above is typical beer company fare—hot young thing applies beer flavored lip gloss, guy plants one on her because, well, bro, she’s got beer on her lips. Is there a better way to get guys to make-out than put an alcoholic beverage on your lips? Clearly not, according to Heineken, at least in the world of advertising. Except that this whole situation is real—not just a man-dream—because the beer flavored gloss actually exists. (And it’s not the only bizarre-o gloss out there!) You can even buy it for just under five euros. Would you wear it? [Heineken via BellaSugar] Keep reading »

Creepy Cool: Crime Scene Pillows

These “CSI”-inspired pillows will, no doubt, make Grisham proud—they’re using crime scene evidence (splattered blood, DNA and fingerprints) as decor! Now all you have to do is scour the (couch) scene, collect the irrefutable evidence and find the missing pieces that will solve the mystery! Or not so much.

When Anna Says Red, You Go Red

We’ve all heard the stories of Anna Wintour casually suggesting something of a beauty change to a model or designer and theverynexthour said model or designer has put that piece of “advice” into effect. Well, word is that model Maggie Rizer (she was huge in the late ’90s/early ’00s and featured in campaigns for Calvin Klein, GAP, every country-version of Vogue, etc. … then her dad up and stole her millions to play the lotto—and lost), has heard from fashion’s end-all, be-all. Anna said that she’d like to see Maggie back as a redhead. Sure, casual comment. Except that it’s not at all casual. Keep reading »

Let’s Take A Little Tour Of ScarJo’s House!

Welcome to Scarlett Johansson‘s house, all! Recently, her Hollywood Hills estate was put up for sale—for those of you with $4.995 million rolling around in your pockets, this house could be yours! (FYI: She bought it for seven mill in ’07—ouch, housing bubble.) Click on for interior shots and a few more exterior photos—personally, I’m more into the outside photos. Is it just me or does the inside feel sort of “eh” to you? And that kitchen? Renovation ASAP, please!

When Eyeliner Crosses The, Er, Line

What are your thoughts on Julianne Moore‘s eyeliner here? Va-va-voom chic or just too wacky witch? I can’t decide. On one hand, she totally played her makeup cards exactly right—she went big on the eyes and muted the rest of her face. On the other, I just can’t seem to get past the fact that I can barely make out her eyes through all the black! (And talk about making her eyes look smaller.) I think what she did here (or her makeup artist did, rather) was go with dual eyeliner. Basically, she started with a liquid, applied a line all the way around her eye, making it thicker at the outer corners and thinner at the inner corners and then came back with a shadow over top. And from the looks of it, the product has a little bit of shimmer in it too (are you seeing the wet-look there?), like the shadow in Stila’s Purrfect Eyes kit. My advice? If you are going with the double-dip of eyeliners, try it out first on just your top lid, then see if it’s really necessary to pile it on. Keep reading »

Try This Alternative To Red Lips

Want to break out of the red lip box? So do I. I’m sort of over it (or at least over telling you about it). Today, I’m all about bright orange lips for spring—well, bright orange-with-a-hint-of-red lips, that is. They achieve the same wowsa-look-at-her-lips reaction, which were all over the runways for spring, and now Rachel Zoe is getting in on the action! (Check out Chloe Sevigny, above; she’s a major orange lip fan.) So what orange lipstick/gloss should you pick? Try Make Up For Ever Lip Gloss #2, says Zoe. And for $12, it’s worth the beauty risk!

Got Acne? There’s An App For That (Almost)

In a time not very far away, your iPhone will be able to clear up your acne and help with wrinkles. Really. According to UK’s The Sun, Dr. Greg Pearson is developing an app that he claims will improve people’s skin by shining a special light on your face while you chat on the phone. The light is supposed to kill off bacteria and promote collagen growth. While it sounds like it could be a reasonable plan—derms have been using light technology for a while now to help acne plagued patients—I’ll believe it when I see it! [The Sun] Keep reading »
