I’ve finally pinpointed the root of my weird obsession with Marion Cotillard: she is the real live version of the naturally lovely, ever-nonchalant, I-want-to-be-her French girl that I previously thought to exist only in my imagination. But here she is! While promoting her new movie “Rust and Bone” at the London Film Festival over the weekend, Marion went low-key with naturally wavy hair, rosy lips, and the prettiest sooty smoky eye we’ve ever seen.

This rosy look is amazing on Christina Hendricks, right? It’s incredibly flattering to her coloring ― she looks gorgeous and natural but not washed out or underdone. These pale shades may not work for everyone, but any skin tone can adapt a similar look by using deeper colors that echo the undertones of the complexion. But for fair skin, sometimes all you really need to brighten up a pale situation (especially in the cooler months, when everything’s a little dull and dry) is a little bit of eyeliner and touches of a color that mimics your natural flush.

The verdict is still out on whether Kate Upton will be able to transition smoothly from lad mag favorite to glossy cover star, but I think it’s safe to say that the odds are in her favor: she had a small (fully clothed!) feature in Vogue back in June, and Olivier Zahm (though not exactly the arbiter of good taste) tapped her for this month’s Jalouse. Most promising of all, Carine Roitfeld has so much faith in the sexy Sports Illustrated girl that she even placed her front and center on the first issue of her new magazine. Keep reading »
As far as genes go, Georgia May Jagger’s got it made. Being the daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall may have its upsides, but unlike most offspring of rock royalty, the 20-year-old is hardly resting on her laurels. With major magazine campaigns, beauty contracts, and Vogue covers to her name, Georgia’s unique look — unsurprisingly, a composite of her mother’s statuesque beauty and her father’s rock and roll rakishness — has already left an impression on the fashion world (and those unmistakable lips might have a little something to do with it, too).
Georgia’s genetic mix of ladylike English rose and gritty libertine has landed her a coveted spot as the face of Vivienne Westwood, and I daresay she showed up some of the catwalkers during her appearance at this weekend’s show, where she played the part of the queen who had been out all night and then some. We may not be able to recreate that gorgeous embroidered gown or the pretty baroque tiara, but her easy, flattering makeup is practically begging to be copied (in less than five minutes, no less) … Keep reading »
I’m like a magpie as far as beauty products go — I’m drawn instinctively to anything bright, sparkly, bizarre, or beautiful — but when it comes to what I put on my own face, I’m an unlikely makeup classicist, and I most definitely stay inside the lines. At the S/S 2013 Prada show in Milan, models (like Jessica Stam, left) walking the runway sported fluorescent red lips that erred ever-so-slightly outside the natural barrier, resulting in an overall effect that’s more cartoonish than chic (wax lips, anybody? I ate a fair few in my day. Spoiler: they are disgusting). General consensus seems to be that this exaggerated lip look is best left to ’90s pop stars — like, say, Gwen Stefani, who showed off a similar shape at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Frankly, I wouldn’t be caught dead in it. Would you?
Are you in the mood to buy some makeup? How about some makeup sold by shapeshifting aliens bearing a vague but bizarre resemblance to the Kardashian sisters? Well, now you can! Or soon, I guess. But seriously, they usually at least do a pretty good approximation of humans. Not this time, my friends. Not this time. [Celebuzz]
Nail art has been around for a long while, but only in the past year or so has it evolved from something you were more likely to see on your cool artsy friend into a ubiquitous trend spotted on everyone from Zooey Deschanel to Beyoncé. The $50 Minx manicure made popular by Katy Perry is more than we’d generally be willing to spend on something so temporary (and, um, tiny), but on the off chance you have $250,000 you’re looking to be really careless with, and you’ve already ruled out eating it, snorting things with it, and donating to the poor (!), why not make like Kelly Osbourne at the Emmys and cash in on the Azature black diamond manicure? (Yes, the same one that drove Winona to pack up her things and take off for Jupiter. We’ll never forgive you for that, Azature.) What, like that’s not a completely reasonable and responsible way to spend your money? Keep reading »
Sunday night’s Emmy Awards gave us a seasonally mixed beauty bag — summery bright lips and dark sultry eyes cropped up in equal abundance, while makeup stalwarts like matte red lips and high-density lashes seemed to take a backseat to more innovative looks. As runway beauty becomes more dramatic and daring, Hollywood follows suit — even Julianne Hough, who is so conventionally blonde and beautiful, went for the ultimate risk by chopping off her long locks earlier this year.
The actress and dancer channeled the Belle Époque on Sunday (she described her look on Twitter as “Midnight In Paris” meets Grace Kelly), wearing her cropped hair in a helmet of pincurls, but I just loved her makeup. Impeccably sculpted brows, soft, smoky bronze shadow, and a rosy blush worn low on the cheeks made Julianne look like she could’ve stepped right out of the 1900s, but she’d be equally at home in 1925 or, well, 2012 — in fact, her makeup artist Molly Stern wanted the look to evoke “a black-and-white photograph come to life.” It’s the rare vintage-inspired face that doesn’t look dated, and with no harsh lines or bright colors, it transitions ever-so-smoothly from the office to the speakeasy (or the club, if that’s how you roll). Conveniently, it’s also festive enough to see you through the season and beyond, well into holiday parties and until the last snow fall. Bottom line: you want, nay, need to steal this look.
