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. Keira is, you know, one of the most naturally beautiful people alive, but makeup artist Lisa Eldridge made the very best of the actress’s features for the occasion. She said of her decision to focus mainly on a feline smoky eye, “I wanted to create a soft, pale, and pretty makeup that had a romantic feel but was careful to add strength around the eyes so the overall look wasn’t washed out against the dress.” Lisa, who spoke to Grazia Daily just after the event, used Chanel products to create the look (Keira is the brand’s beauty ambassador). Get the full scoop after the jump, but don’t be put off by the potential costliness of recreating it — I’ve also included my top product picks for taking Keira’s cues at a more affordable price range.

Seriously, you guys, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley needs to stop being so freakin’ flawless. In addition to being a Victoria’s Secret Angel, (hopefully one-off — sorry, lady, I love you but it’s just not your thing) actress, and the girlfriend to supremely handsome action hero Jason Statham, the model has just launched her own eponymous lingerie line (which features, get this, roses!) with British retailer Marks & Spencer. Rosie has a signature beauty look that she doesn’t often deviate from, and for good reason: it’s pretty, subtle, and highlights her perfect features rather than overshadowing them. Fortunately for us flawed mortals, it’s also universally flattering, so while it may not make you look like Rosie, you’ll definitely look like a better, rosier version of yourself. Keep reading »

Former red carpet mainstay Kate Hudson has opted for a more low-key lifestyle in the past few years since settling down with Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy and their one-year-old son Bingham. In fact, her public appearances this week at the 69th Venice Film Festival are the first she’s made since April. I don’t know what’s in the water wherever she’s been hiding or if it’s just fortunate genes (see: mom Goldie Hawn), but Penny Lane is looking better than ever, especially in the soft, natural hair and makeup she chose for the premiere of her latest film, “The Reluctant Fundamentalist.” The look is simple, but glamorous in its subtlety; she just looks expensive, no? I can’t tell you where to get that long flaxen hair, or that to-die-for necklace (believe me, if I knew, I’d be wearing it right now), but I can clue you in to copping her fresh-faced beauty, after the jump … Keep reading »

Is Whitney Port’s Purple Makeup So Wrong, Or So Wrong It’s Right?

With September on the horizon (dun dun dunnnnn), celebrities are often the first ones to convert their looks from beach-ready basics to the sultrier trappings of fall. Whitney Port isn’t someone I normally look at and think, Celebrity!, mostly because I’m a huge snob, but she does seem sharply attuned to the revolving seasonal trends. Dark eggplant-hued shadows, liners, and lipsticks are all over the radar for autumn, with cool-toned mauve shades rising to popularity as well. The former star of “The City” presented her eponymous clothing line at the Fashion Festival in Sydney (where, it’s worth nothing, it’s high summer), and chose a very purple look for the occasion, complementing a plum lip gloss with a similar shade around her eyes. While there isn’t anything fundamentally wrong with this pairing, I can’t help but feel like it makes the usually radiant Whitney look a bit… under the weather.

So this movie “Bachelorette” just came out, and I’m so ambivalent as to whether or not I should see it. On one hand, I love (in no manner of order other than how they are credited on iMDB) Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, Kirsten Dunst, James Marsden, Adam Scott, and Rebel Wilson. On the other, I heard that the movie itself is an abomination. On the other, other hand, I really want to see it, but will I regret wasting 91 minutes of my life? Therein lies the conundrum.

All internal battles aside, the stars looked just lovely on the red carpet at the premiere over the weekend. Winona and I agree that Kirsten slayed this Gaultier trench-inspired dress, which could have been a disaster on the wrong girl; Lizzy looked so good from the waist up that I’ll let her awkward-length slip slide; Isla was refined perfection in red lace Reem Acra. But I’m really feeling their individual approaches to makeup for the night — the three managed to look gorgeous and true to their own sensibilities without overshadowing one another. I think this calls for a special three-way edition, no? Keep reading »

Katy Perry Is Flame-Haired And Florence-Esque On The Cover Of L’Officiel

Katy Perry is no stranger to Crayola-colored hair, having long eschewed her natural blonde (!) for every which shade of the Manic Panic rainbow, but this is the first time we’ve seen the songstress looking so …  fiery! The September cover of French fashion mag L’Officiel casts Katy in a warmer, more romantic light, offsetting the shock of copper hair with a pretty peach dress and subtle rosy makeup (I seriously hope she swapped numbers with the makeup artist from this shoot). It’s a solid departure from her usual over-the-top all-the-makeup-at-once fare, but would it be wrong for me to suggest that Katy looks really good channeling a touch of Florence Welch, orange hair and all?

We already know that Maria Sharapova is a hardcore philanthropist and kickass tennis player who has scored some of the biggest endorsement deals around, but her equally formidable sweet tooth managed to fly under the radar … until now. The Olympic silver medalist and four-time Grand Slam winner (and she’s only 25!) launched her premium candy line, Sugarpova, at Henri Bendel yesterday, and at risk of sounding tooth-achingly trite, Sharapova looked pretty damn sweet herself. A metallic dark brown liner smudged between the lashes and a sheer, shimmery mushroom taupe shadow on the lids enhances her almond-shaped eyes without the “too much” factor when paired with a pretty coral lipstick. This look is super-simple and the clean, fresh vibe is perfect for the office … or anywhere else, really. Get the details after the jump! Keep reading »

Embarrassingly enough, I was a very serious “Harry Potter” fan back in the day, cloak and wand at the book releases and all. (I probably shouldn’t be outing myself on the Internet, but there it is.) I always thought Hermione was just the coolest, so my adoration of Emma Watson is really just a natural progression of that love. With big-name fashion campaigns and more than a few blockbusters under her belt, the 22-year-old actress went from being known as a bossy, bookish voice of reason to the sylphlike, short-haired vixen she is today. On the cover of T Magazine’s September issue, Emma looks every bit the young, serious ingénue, and she wears it especially well with a smattering of freckles and one sick cat-eye. [T Magazine]

Confession time: I deal with a lot of closet ginger envy. Aren’t we supposed to make fun of them or something? (Kidddddding.) Whatever it is, I definitely didn’t get the memo, because I would trade in my dark hair and ghostly pallor for a splash of freckles and an auburn mane any day of the week — see: Amy Adams, who is basically a walking Renoir, and her glossy copper-red hue isn’t even natural. Speaking of copper, check out the gorgeous bronze shadow lining her lower lashes. It gives definition without the heaviness of a darker matte shade, which can really drag down the lower eye, and the warm metallic tones really make blue and green eyes pop. It looks like she also has a bit of a shimmery champagne color in the inner corner around her tear duct as a lighter complement to the rustier color.

I love this look, and it’s surprisingly easy to achieve as well. Apply the shadow sparingly to the lower rim with a small tapered liner brush (or better yet, try a shadow pencil like Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow in 22E), sweep the same shade over the lid and up into the brow bone, then tap just a touch of gold highlight to the inner eye (Benefit’s cult fave Moon Beam is a better-than-safe bet for any complexion) to glow like Amy. And for the love of god, if you have the coloring to pull off ginger hair, do it. Redheads are so hot.

I’m not trying to throw shade, but Pippa Middleton royally needs some help with her beauty game.Why does she have to go around in Forever 21 Couture with a deep orange Travolta tan and a face you can see your reflection in (contrary to rumors that old Pip loves herself a good powder session) while her oh-so-lucky sister the Duchess gets to be the darling of commoners and fashion editors alike? Not fair!
