“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…

Fall Beauty How-To: Kristen Stewart’s Golden Smoky Eye

We’re reaching the point of the year wherein I refuse to leave my bed at any and all costs because it is so damn cold.

Beauty Cues: Katie Holmes Is Green And Gilded On The Cover Of “Bazaar” Russia

It’s been some time since our long-running Free Katie campaign finally came to fruition, and there seems to be just the atmospheric shift we were hoping for: Suri is enrolled in a real brick-and-mortar school for mortals, and not only was Katie Holmes able to offer her Holmes & Yang presentation at NYFW, but she’…

Beauty How-To: Get The Perfect Precise Statement Lip For Fall In Five Easy Steps

The cooler seasons always call for more dramatic beauty looks, from sultry smoky eyes to vampy red lips, but this year’s focus is especially inclined toward a statement lip that’s a touch darker than the usual fall fare.

The Look For Less: Get Keira Knightley’s Pretty Chanel Makeup Without The Chanel Prices

I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about the cupcake-y dress Keira Knightley wore to the “Anna Karenina” UK premiere, but one thing is for absolute certain: her makeup was gorgeous.

So we’ve covered both the top trends to watch this fall and the five must-haves you need to get them, but there’s one particular look that’s been safely concealed beneath the radar until now.

Get The Look: Mila Kunis Brings The Heat In “Interview” Magazine

Mila Kunis is a force to be reckoned with: she’s the rare celebrity, or even human being (!), who is all at once beautiful, hilarious, intelligent, ballsy, self-deprecating, honest, and humble — at least, she appears to be all of those things. (Who said girls couldn’t be gorgeous and sidesplittingly funny? Oh yeah, that wa…

Beauty Style Stealer: Nicole Richie’s Shimmery Lids

I hated — hated! — Nicole Richie in her “Simple Life” days. I mean, didn’t you? She was bratty, annoying, and entitled with crusty hair extensions and a tiny dog, whining and generally acting despicable alongside her equally (if not more) horrible cohort, Paris Hilton. That’s why I love Nicole all the more now: she…

Beauty How-To: Basic Contouring And Highlighting

If you’ve ever been photographed with professional lighting versus, well, any other type of lighting, you’ll know how much well-placed shadows and highlights can change the structure on your face. Almost every time I look at a photo of myself, I’m bothered by how unphotogenic I am. “I don’t even look like that!,” I whine,…

A Basic Guide To Eyebrow Grooming

It’s easy to underestimate the importance of eyebrows to the overall structure of your face.

Beauty Style Stealer: Mena Suvari

I assume I speak for many of us when I say that I couldn’t really care less about “American Reunion,” but I am very interested in Mena Suvari.

Backstage Beauty: Burberry Prorsum

While many labels have shifted to favor the avant-garde face, Burberry Prorsum is generally a show at which beauty is held in high priority. The Burberry girl is, after all, inherently pretty in the most natural way. Think spokesmodel for the Body fragrance, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a woman on whom clothes seem superfluous — just a…
