Beyonce sure has a lot going on lately (and, um, all the time): a massive tour, a controversial trip to Cuba, a rumored second pregnancy… But regardless of how much Queen Bey has on her plate, she never misses a beat when it comes to looking flawless, whether she’s rolling in to a Nets game or a red carpet event. Mrs. Carter’s flame-embellished gown at the Met Ball was a polarizing choice, but her makeup for the evening? Universally gorgeous. A few tips and tricks, after the jump… Keep reading »

Pretty Ponies: 10 Perfect Celeb Ponytails

When the weather is warm and sticky, the last thing you want to do is wear your hair down. A typical ponytail or topknot gets old fast, so why not take a cue from one of these pretty ponytails? Tossed to the side or roughed up at the crown, your summer look can go from basic to bomb in seconds flat. Draw some inspiration from these 10 celebs …

Beauty Cues: The 2013 Met Costume Institute Ball

If there’s one thing we can say for certain about Monday night’s “punk”-themed Met Gala, it’s that there was certainly a lot to look at. Like, a lot. We hardly even know where to begin. There was the good, which was at its best over-the-top and in keeping (or attempted) with the misappropriated theme, and then there was the cringeworthy bad, which was either a total miss (do you even know what you’re here for?) or uncannily similar to a first-degree crime committed on the local Hot Topic store. But the beauty, by and large, was spectacular! Red carpet events usually call for boring stalwarts of things like “red lips” and “Hollywood waves,” but makeup artists and hair stylists really got a chance to show their edgier chops last night. For this, we are grateful… and, naturally, jealous of the stars who got to wear some of the best looks at the gala. We’re taking cues from six of our favorite looks of the night, right here…

Winging It: 10 Gorgeous Celeb Winged Liner Looks

Winged eyeliner is one of the most versatile, and most flattering, makeup looks around. It gets a bad rap for being difficult to achieve, but once you’ve got your technique down, you’ll be able to nail it every time. Not only is there something that’s just cool and insouciant about it, but a thick black wing has been the calling card for some of the sexiest stars of all time, from Brigitte Bardot and Jean Shrimpton to Jane Birkin and Sophia Loren. Whether they’re in classic black or an unexpected pop of color, these 10 winged liner looks are not to be missed …

There are a few things that every makeup-lovin’ lady needs to have in her arsenal. It’s sort of like the difference between romantic prospects and friends: bold lipsticks and punchy eyeshadows come and go, but your Holy Grail products are forever. The perfect foundation that matches your complexion exactly and makes it look flawless; the perfect concealer that magically causes every blemish or imperfection you might have to vanish on the spot; the perfect neutral shadow that makes your eyes look bigger and brighter… and of course, the perfect go-to lip color.

Generally referred to as “my lips but better” (or MLBB), the ideal go-to lip color does just that — it suits your skin tone and flatters your face better than a brighter, trendier shade, and it imparts color and impact in a way that a clear lip balm just doesn’t. You could also refer to this type of lip color as “nude,” but it definitely isn’t the generic pale, corpse-y beige that comes to mind. It’s your nude, and it’s different for everyone. So let’s get to finding yours! Keep reading »

Lourdes Leon’s New Look & 5 Other Celebs Rocking Green Hair

We don’t know if it’s a case of teen angst or a latent desire to follow in mom’s (former) footsteps, but Madonna‘s 16-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon is a certified badass in the making. The teenager has shirked her famous mother’s strict, borderline puritanical upbringing in favor of cigarettes, piercings, handsome show-biz boyfriends, and now… green hair! Lola was spotted out in her hometown of New York City over the weekend showing off her new verdigris locks, and I have to say, I’m kind of into it. In fact, I had green hair myself when I was 16! So yeah, consider me 100 percent on board with Lourdes’s new look.

Plenty of celebs love themselves some unnaturally-colored hair, and green is a particular favorite. Check out similar looks on Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and more in the gallery above!

Kelly Osbourne Needs To Step Away From The Bronzer, Stat

Choosing A Bronzer
Which bronzer is right for you? Read More »

I can’t be sure if Kelly Osbourne‘s unfortunate mishap is the result of an overzealous bronzer application, or whether self-tanner is to blame — really, it could go either way. But Kelly usually has such lovely fair skin, and it goes so well with her glamorous, edgy vibe… As a lifelong Extra Pale, I always feel disappointed when a fellow fog-dweller turns to the bronze side. Why do some celebrities have such an aversion to their natural skin tones? There’s nothing wrong with being pale; it just helps people find you better in the dark! I’ve always fancied myself a bit of a human lantern, personally. Oh yeah, and above are some other celeb tanning disasters…

What is this “contouring” that makeup artists and celebrities speak of? I see it all the time — that subtle shadow right under their cheekbones, lifting their faces, enhancing their features, and overall making them look more beautiful than they already are. How in the world do you do it, and what products do you use? — Clueless About Contouring

Contouring done properly is one of the most important makeup lessons to be learned out of the entire lexicon. Every celebrity makeup artist does it on every celebrity. We never see our favorite stars hit the red carpet without it. You may recognize it from this classic image, forever imprinted in our hearts and minds… Keep reading »

Feel Like A Star On Oscar Night With These 9 Luxurious Treatments

I don’t care how cliche it is, I am a girl that loves a good awards show. The bigger the stars (and the more of them), the better. The Oscars have all of my favorite things in one place: glitzy dresses fresh off the runway? Check. Incredible hair and makeup? Check. Acceptance speeches that run the gamut from hilarious to tear-jerking to obnoxious to secondhand embarassment-inducing? Check. A valid reason to drink to excess and yell at the TV screen that doesn’t involve sports? Check! I don’t necessarily wish I was famous (though there are some pretty undeniable perks, i.e. free everything), but I definitely like to approach Oscars night as the ideal opportunity to act like I am. This doesn’t mean I like to get all dressed up and put on loads of borrowed jewelry and have an awkward conversation with Giuliana Rancic — actually, it’s kind of the opposite. Come Sunday night, I will be doing one thing and one thing only, and that is treating myself with some full-fledged pampering, fuzzy bathrobe style. Or shall we say, celeb-style? So please, get your hair masques, face masques, everything masques at the ready. Put your best pajamas on and pop the Moët & Chandon (it’s the official champagne of the Oscars!). Here are the luxurious treatments I’ll be indulging in while I sit back and watch the 85th Academy Awards…
