I am a happy spectator of any and all awards shows for what is likely the same reason that most people are: I love nothing more than to turn on my TV, eat a ton of bread, and watch the most beautiful people in the world prance around in designer dresses and the kind of makeup I could only dream of applying. Be still my heart! There were quite a few beauty highlights from the Screen Actors Guild Awards this weekend: here’s just a few, and how to get them…
I am forever envious of Jessica Alba‘s uncanny ability to always look like she’s being professionally backlit (is she?). The woman just glows! Of course, I think her makeup might have a little something to do with it, too: pearly peach-brown shadow paired with a berry lip stain is a fresh look that’s a few steps above “neutral,” which is a welcome change from winter’s matte smoky eyes and dark wine lipsticks. If you, too, want to look like you’re perpetually illuminated by candlelight this holiday season, and I know you do, let’s break it down after the jump … Keep reading »
If I were Kristen Stewart, I would bid adieu to my sparkly boyfriend and put a ring on my makeup artist instead. Whether she’s in bright pink lipstick or this gorgeous smoked-out bronze eye, you can always bet on Bella Swan for the most enviable beauty looks (and, okay, arm candy) on any given red carpet. We’re obsessed with this pretty metallic look ― let’s take a closer look and break it down, after the jump. Keep reading »

Let’s take a closer look at what’s going on here and break it down real simple, after the jump … Keep reading »
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. There unfortunately aren’t too many upsides to late fall as far as I’m concerned, aside from pretty scarves, outerwear, and, like, wool tights, but none of these things are enough to get me out from under the comforter every morning. But do you know what is? Eyeshadow! I pretty much forget about the stuff when the temperature rises above 50 degrees, because no matter how much primer I slap on or powder I dust on top, it is going to be dripping down my sorry face in a few minutes time.
With the most bloody of celebrations (yay, Thanksgiving!) on deck, I’ve been searching for inspiration to fuel a festive fall eye, and I finally found it in Kristen Stewart‘s gilded take on a smoky eye. She paired it with a gorgeous, quite revealing gown, but this look is equally suited to your Thanksgiving best, even if your Thanksgiving best happens to be your best pair of sweatpants. Find out how to get Kristen’s look, after the jump! Keep reading »
