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

Pre-Fall Beauty
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.

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 »

Hot on the heels of our sneak peek at this fall’s NARS x Andy Warhol collection comes the release of another brilliant collab: consider it prime time to get excited about Carine Roitfeld’s highly anticipated line for MAC, out September 6. The former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief, who also happens to be be debuting her new magazine, CR Fashion Book, exactly a week after the MAC release, has curated a series of tempting offerings right in line with her own beauty ideology — heavy on the black shadow, framed by thick brows and perfect skin, Carine evangelizes a look that’s messy, a little bit gritty, and in her own words, “tired sexy.” Keep reading »

You know that saying about love — you know, the classic line from the classic film “The Hot Chick” — that it makes your heart beat faster and slower at the same time? Well, I have intimacy issues, but that’s the kind of feeling I get towards new makeup releases, particularly when not one, but two, of my favorite icons are involved. Let’s get down to it: I’m talking Andy Warhol, artist, socialite, pop culture hero, as the inspiration behind a cosmetic line from makeup innovator and photographer François Nars. The NARS founder and namesake has crafted the brand’s — and the Warhol Foundation’s — largest collaboration, with Andy as its muse. Keep reading »
