Is there anyone, dead or alive, who could even stand to compete with Liv Tyler‘s hair game? The only feasible way I could sit through 166 minutes of “The Hobbit” would be if at least 150 of those minutes were devoted to Liv’s hair care routine. Wait, is she even in the movie?
We’re in love with gold, especially around the holidays ― its warm glow is universally flattering, and just a touch of the metallic shade can take a look from drab to party-ready. We know it’s a solid choice for jewelry, but when it comes to clothes and other accessories, it can be difficult to know where to draw the line between festive and, well, overboard. Here are our best bets (including a few well-deserved splurges) for integrating a little bit of flash in our wardrobes this season …
Reese Witherspoon is totally the girl you think is so low-key and cool and just wears fleece sweatpants and mom jeans and stuff, and then she shows up somewhere, like, three months after having a baby, looking way better than you and you didn’t even have a baby, and you’re like, “What just happened, Reese? I thought you were on my side.” Betrayal. How does she do it?
You know what they say about us former high school freaks always getting the last laugh, right? Case in point: this season’s most-wanted makeup is all about all things glamorously goth. (And no, we will not be drawing Robert Smith comparisons. Rather, think Morticia Addams meets Dita von Teese.) This is quite the boon for the naturally fair among us; suddenly, my ghostly pallor is trendy! The dramatic, dangerous vamp look is easier to pull off than you might think, especially when the rest of your body is swathed in sweaters and scarves ― there’s no better, more weather-appropriate way to make a statement.

“My hair is a battle. It’s an uphill, fine, baby-haired battle. It’s bone-straight and I have some pieces that my hairstylist stuck in my hair right now because if she didn’t you could see my ears through my hair right now. I mean, not to brag. There’s not much going on there. … I have weak nails, weak hair, weak skin and a weak bicep. What can I say?”
― When celebrities discuss their beauty routines, it’s usually in roundabout terms that come down to, “buy this new product I don’t actually use from this brand I’m being paid more than your gross life earnings per year to endorse!” But leave it to Emma Stone to be all at once candid (she says that she doesn’t wear lipstick on her own time because she tends to eat it), self-deprecatingly funny (she refers to her spotty skincare regimen as “very promiscuous”), and not shoving something in your face, all while schilling for Revlon. How in the world does she do it? [Glamour]
Given Lena Dunham‘s fairly recent induction into the Pixie Cut Club, which we presume involved a hazing at the hand of Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams, it was only a matter of time before some (fresh! Innovative! Cutting-edge!) photographer and makeup artist decided to give the girl behind “Girls” the full Twiggy. Dare we say she does it better than most? Dunham agreed: hairstylist Reanne White said of Lena’s look, “She was taking pictures of herself and she kept all the makeup to go out that night.” Looking good, Hannah Horvath!

I’m pretty stoked about “Les Misérables,” mostly because I practically inhaled the book as a precocious 13-year-old but never got the chance to catch it on Broadway. I cry every time the trailer comes on so I should probably, definitely go see it alone. Still, we were hoping that Anne Hathaway, what with her angling for a 2013 Oscar nom for her role as ill-fated prostitute Fantine, would fare slightly better on the red carpet at the film’s world premiere.

Say what you will about Kim Kardashian, but I’ll forever back her on one thing: the girl’s makeup is always on point. Whether she’s rocking the family trademark super-smoky eye and nude gloss, or keeping it low-key with just mascara and flawless skin, Kim’s beauty routine has inarguably got it going on. Check out our top seven picks of her many makeup looks in the gallery above! Keep reading »
“Holiday makeup” implies many a thing. It’s festive! It’s fancy! It’s … probably a little over the top. You could go the obvious route, with red and green and tons of sparkle and, like, a wreath or pine needles in your hair, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Here, Leighton Meester shows us the perfect way to bridge the gap between classic and festive without throwing an impromptu Christmas party on your face. Let’s take a closer look at what’s going on here and break it down real simple, after the jump … Keep reading »
