What happens when you take  four best-selling skincare and makeup products and combine them in a kit that looks like a vintage hardbound book? I squeal with delight, that’s what happens, because Benefit’s new “How To Look The Best At Everything” flawless complexion kit is not only a great makeup combo, it’s adorable. For 30 bucks, you get POREfessional primer, Hello Flawless illuminator, BOI-ING concealer, Hello Flawless powder, and retro illustrated graphics that teach you how to apply each one for a truly flawless finish. This book has definitely earned a place in my makeup library. [$30, Sephora]

Our Top 10 Nail Polish Picks For Fall

With the promise of a new season comes the necessity to change things up, from our hair to our wardrobes to our go-to nail colors. It’s time to break up with our summer brights — so long, neon, it was fun while it lasted — and move on to more subdued shades. Luckily, our favorite nail polish brands are well-acquainted with the predicament we’re in right now, and they’ve come to the rescue with brand-new collections of sultry hues that can be worn well through the winter, too. (Don’t worry, we didn’t forget our old favorites, either.) For best results, pair with a cashmere sweater (when the time comes — don’t rush it!) and some sweet motorcycle boots. Unless you’ve got a fresh pedicure, that is — don’t worry, we won’t judge you for wearing sandals while you still can. Keep reading »

Beauty Cues: Kirsten Dunst Adds Some Sparkle To Another “Bachelorette” Premiere

Let me pose a very serious question: does Kirsten Dunst ever go wrong? (Before you ask, I think she has done her very best to absolve herself of that totally weird amFAR dress.) With formidable fashion choices and equally stunning acting chops, it’s all too easy to forget that Kiki was the street-style celeb to watch before she decided to step away from the spotlight in 2008.

Anyway, I’m thrilled to see the actress back in action, and I daresay she’s better than ever. Publicity rounds for “Bachelorette” alongside Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher have seen her through a series of show-stealing outfits, and I’m consistently impressed by her interesting beauty looks. (She may also know a thing or two about teabagging, but that is neither here nor there.) They’re always pretty, but she never goes for the traditional trappings — a matte red lip, as seen here, is classic, but her shimmery copper shadow turns the standard on its head for an effective unexpected edge.

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.

“I just bought my first primer and I was so excited to use it, but then I realized I don’t actually know how to use it. Does it go on before or after my concealer? What about moisturizer? My daily regimen includes sunscreen, concealer, powder, and now primer. Could you help me figure out the order in which I should be putting all these products on my face? Thanks so much!” – Primed For Greatness

Oh, Primed For Greatness, you have so much to learn! But not to worry, you have a lot of potential, too — there are plenty of makeup newbies who begrudge the virtues of a good primer in their makeup routine. Expressing a desire to use one properly is the first step in your journey to becoming a primer pro. Keep reading »

Beauty Trends To Watch: Burgundy Shadow Works On And Off The Runway

Prepare for fall in the prettiest way possible. Read More »

So we’ve covered both the top trends to watch this fall and the five must-haves you need to get them, but there’s one particular look that’s been safely concealed beneath the radar until now. Burgundy eyeshadow — or, well, any eyeshadow with warm reddish tones — doesn’t exactly sound like the most flattering of colors, but you’d be pleasantly surprised by how wearable the vampy shade becomes when applied sheer and smoky like a haze around the eye.
