Gwen Stefani And Prada Are Cool With Coloring Outside The (Lip) Lines

Awesome Orange-Reds
Can you guess which is $25 and which is $1? Read More »

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?

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 »

Get Her Look: Julianne Hough’s Bronze Belle Époque Beauty From The Emmys

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.

Five reasons why Katie Holmes is our new hero. Read More »

It’s been some time since our long-running Free Katie campaign finally came to fruition, and there seems to be just the atmospheric shift we were hoping for: Suri is enrolled in a real brick-and-mortar school for mortals, and not only was Katie Holmes able to offer her Holmes & Yang presentation at NYFW, but she’s appearing on magazine covers again! The October issue of Harper’s Bazaar Russia features the actress and designer in some gorgeous opulent clothing, but what I’m really interested in is her eye makeup. It’s dark and smoldering, as are most smoky eye looks, but it’s subtly different and therefore more interesting because rather than being done in shades of black and grey, the colors ― deep metallic green and a warm reddish brown ― are more on the peacock spectrum. Obviously hers is beautifully, artfully done, but I know how to get a similar look in a simpler way that requires little more than five minutes and an index finger or two… Keep reading »

Fall Beauty Inspiration: 10 Seasonal Looks From The Stars

We know: what with the dreary weather and spring/summer Fashion Weeks on the brain just to rub it all in, it’s pretty much impossible to get excited about fall. The beauty aspect is especially depressing, considering it’s time to trade in our tinted SPF moisturizers for foundation, tousled ombre waves for darker autumnal hues, and sheer pink lips for full-coverage reds and nudes — it’s all enough to make a girl want to hibernate only to emerge next May. Fortunately, celebrities have been dabbling in fall looks for months now, so drawing inspiration from them can make the transition a little easier on the rest of us. Behold, the prettiest fall looks that may just have you looking forward to cable knits and crunchy leaves…

As a child of the ’90s, I have an intrinsic emotional association with Mandy Moore. I vividly recall listening to her completely inane songs on my Walkman waiting for my mom to pick me up from karate (not an isolated incident, she was always late to pick me up from karate). Mandy has done a lot of growing up since she was last in the spotlight, and since I was last at karate, and I guess she’s kind of awesome now? It’s evident that her “Cry” days are long gone: she appeared in a couple of rom-coms, got married to Ryan Adams (who I, as a longtime Jeff Tweedy fan, do not enjoy, but whatever), voiced Rapunzel in “Tangled,” and is now working on a brand-new album that will (presumably) be a drastic departure from the vaguely nauseating tracks of yore.

I’m willing to give Mandy another chance, especially since she’s been looking all kinds of stylish at New York Fashion Week! If that doesn’t say comeback, then I don’t know what does. I’m “Crush”-ing hard on this look in particular: it’s a subtle segue into the dark, dramatic beauty trends on the forecast, but it’s still sweet and pretty enough to wear through the interim. If you’re ready to jump the gun on fall beauty, but aren’t quite prepared to delve into dark aubergine shades, cop Mandy’s look right now! Keep reading »
