So who was it that said redheads couldn’t wear pink? Sure, one of Jessica Chastain‘s false lashes may be trying to make a run for it, but the rest of her looks freakin’ fabulous. With that said, I am neon pink lipstick’s fiercest, most loyal advocate; I will testify to the death that a seriously hot semi-matte pink like this one looks good on anyone, anywhere, all the time, and that means redheads, too. It brightens up fair complexions, provides killer contrast to a tan, and makes your teeth look whiter and your eyes sharper and clearer. Such a bold shade plays best with a fresh, natural complexion and little color elsewhere, like Jessica’s glowy skin and light-handed blush in a similar shade. I’m just a touch disappointed that Jessica went the extensions route this time rather than sport her new bob, but hey, she looks gorgeous either way.

Face-Off: Elisha Cuthbert Squares Off Against Mena Suvari

A bright lip may be the ubiquitous summer makeup look, but there’s also a time and a place for a flattering nude — that is, any time, any place. InStyle Magazine hosted their 11th Annual Summer Soiree in Hollywood last night, and many of the cover girls and other sartorially inclined ladies hit the red carpet sporting glossy my-lips-but-better looks paired with simple black eyeliner. Elisha Cuthbert veered on the natural side of the style with darkly defined eyes and a caramel-toned gloss, while Mena Suvari went the mod way with a satiny muted pink lipstick, a thin stroke of liquid liner, and thick lashes (not to mention one of the most kickass haircuts I’ve ever seen). Now, I love both of these looks, and Mena and Elisha are both beyond glowy and gorgeous; it’s just a matter of preference … so who do you think looks better nude? (Mena for me — I adore a good updated ’60s-inspired look, and the amazing hair seals the deal.)

Who do you think does the natural nude better?

Matte red lipstick and a cat-eye flick of liner is hands down the most classic look out there if you’re seeking to channel an Old Hollywood starlet — and really, who isn’t? — but it’s also the easiest to get wrong. There are very, very few people who can work a face that’s so “done” in that both the eyes and lips are heavily accentuated, but British singer Paloma Faith pulled it off perfectly. Note how fine the line is extending past the eye, the slight sheerness (and perfect application — use a lip brush!) of the tomato-y red, and how the rest of her face is fresh and dewy. It’s absolutely key to skip powder and let the skin’s natural radiance shine through to keep the look young and avoid “retro” trappings. Keep blotting papers on hand to address oil in the T-zone, but believe it or not, this look actually benefits from a little bit of shine provided it’s under control.

If you want to give it a try, the brand new Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Raven, $28, is the perfect velvety crimson that won’t fade, budge, or sap the moisture out of lips as matte formulas are wont to do. Use tinted moisturizer in place of foundation over an instant-radiance serum like Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer, $45.

Jennifer Garner is one of those actresses that I love inexplicably insofar as I have literally never seen any film or TV show she has ever been in. (In my defense, I am easily bored and I feel like Jennifer Garner might actually be a little boring, not that there is anything wrong with that.) Given that all I really know of her is that she’s pretty, has adorable children, and seems very sweet, I like Jennifer on that basis. The other day, however, I came upon the trailer for “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” while watching “Hollywood Exes” (no shame), and I know it’s a children’s movie and all but I got a little bit of eye water. Is that so wrong? Well, I’ll be seeing it. You don’t have to come. Keep reading »

As much as I’m thrilled for Natalie Portman, Benjamin Millepied, and their gorgeous Big Serious (Ginger) Baby Aleph, the celebration must come with a certain gravitas because one of Hollywood’s loveliest ladies is officially off the market. I hope that motherhood and married life do not translate into the diminishing of Natalie’s public presence, because she’s been one of my absolute favorite red carpet regulars since I was, like, 14 and loved “Garden State” like every other wannabe manic pixie dream girl. (I know now that I am just regular manic.) Recent paparazzi photos of Natalie in her naturally curly-haired, bootleg jeans-wearing state, coupled with this morning’s news, stoked a certain anxiety in me that I had lost my dear friend (this is getting weird) to some kind of million-legged insect.

Fear no more: two of Natalie’s latest ads for Dior came through today, and girlfriend mama still got it! (Sorry, weird again.) Not only is she the Dior Cherie perfume girl as she has been for the past two years, but she’s also the (flawless, might I add) face of the brand’s new makeup range, Diorskin Nude. Now this is one campaign that could make me shell out $50 for a foundation … but I’m easily swayed. In a word: obsessed. Natalie just kills me with pretty. Click through for the second image, and if you’d please excuse me, I’m off to snip myself a set of bangs. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

When Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, isn’t all glammed up for events, I think she is so freakin’ adorable. Is that disrespectful to say of a future princess? I just mean that she looks so relaxed and smiley, like a fun normal girl with exceptionally shiny, voluminous hair, that I want her to be my best pretty princess friend. Bonus points for looking downright fabulous in Yves Klein blue! So if we did happen to become best pretty princess friends, which is almost entirely possible, I would gently advise her to loosen up the vise grip on the black eye pencil, and steer her in the direction of a thin, clean liquid line on the upper lid. There is no reason that anyone, especially a girl as lovely and as married to Prince William as Kate, should be wearing such heavy-handed liner to a daytime sporting event (oh, just the Olympics). However, I will note that she is clearly magic, because she’s sitting in the sun and that stuff is not budging. I would die to know what’s inside Kate’s makeup bag, but I feel pretty confident that she will never, ever tell. That skin! It’s gotta be the bee venom.

I often wish I had come into the world several decades earlier than my early-nineties debut (hi mom!), but one of the few benefits that make me grateful to have been an adolescent of the aughties is that I was of prime age for the glory days of “The O.C.” I am not being sarcastic; that show was fucking good. As a result of my unyielding affection for that paradigm of zeitgeist-y melodramatic (so melodramatic) teenage television, my love for Rachel Bilson runs deep. She’s just adorable in every way, even without mentioning the obvious fact that she owns one of the most crush-worthy wardrobes this side of Newport Beach. Oh, and Luke Skywalker.

Beyond that, I have never known Rachel to make a sartorial misstep, and this occasion for TCA’s Summer Party is no different. The critics, however, have spoken, and they are not liking the unusual hairstyle she sported on Sunday’s red carpet. It feels to me like an almost-hit: it would have looked really good had she mussed up the tight side to make it look a little prettier and more undone. As it is, I don’t hate the look, but there’s definitely an imbalance to it. Whatever — Rachel Bilson is still fundamentally perfect and I refuse to fault her for this slight blunder … even if said “slight blunder” vaguely channels Donald Trump.

Face-Off: Kristin Kreuk Vs. VS Angels In Battle Of The Babes

It’s gotta be hard out here for a Victoria’s Secret Angel, having to stay so damn sexy all the time. I, for one, could never pull it off, especially when you consider that things like ice cream cake and Tate’s cookies exist. Regardless (now I’m all thinking about food and stuff), the Angels have a hallmark beauty look that consists of some pretty basic elements, advertised here by Candice Swanepoel and Bregje Heinen: undone center-parted sex hair (somebody please tell me those manes are extensions and not real, beautiful luscious strands that humans can actually possess), flushed, dewy skin, natural lips, and defined eyes that wing out slightly.

The Television Critics Association’s Summer Party is underway as we speak, and the brightest young stars of Showtime, CBS, and the CW are turning out for the occasion. To my delight, this guarantees beauty fodder en masse, and the fresh-faced ladies who regularly grace the small screen have not been known to disappoint. Jaime King has been in the business for some time, but the former high fashion model keeps it low-profile these days — there’s a good chance you won’t recognize her unless you’re a fan of “Hart of Dixie,” in which she plays the antagonist to Rachel Bilson’s main character.

Relax, you guys: the code red alert for Jessica Biel’s bangs trauma has been lowered to third-degree orange! Just kidding, they still look terrible, but at least she’s is figuring out how to work with her unfortunate fringe, no? As seen at the photocall for her new movie “Total Recall” (a remake of the original 1990 film), this is one of my favorite looks that I’ve seen on Jess: soft-focus skin, very little on the eyes, and a rich pink-red lipstick (which seems to be Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Fascinante) to bring the focus to her full lips and make her hazel eyes look greener. From the ears down I love the cool, beachy waves she’s sporting, but the bangs must go. I repeat: the bangs must go.
