Helmut Red Is An Oh-So-Appropriate Tribute To A Legend

Helmut Newton is inarguably one of the most prolific fashion photographers in history. His body of work, which during his life was a mainstay in high-end publications like Vogue Paris and Harper’s Bazaar, is instantly recognizable world-over. Nudity, overt sexualization, and erotic fetishistic subtexts stylized expressively in black and white are the hallmarks of a Helmut shot.

Makeup Bag: 10 Shimmery (Not Glittery!) Products To Light Up Your Summer Look

The dividing line between shimmer and glitter is seemingly modest, but boy, is there a gigantic difference between the two (let’s just say glitter is kind of like shimmer’s trampy sister). There’s a time and a place for everything, but when it comes to your makeup this summer, subtle shimmer is the way to go: it reflects light and imparts a dreamy, ethereal glow that can’t quite be traced, completely devoid of the garish “1980s prom in Utah” effect glitter is infamous for. A touch of incandescence restricted to one area of the face not only brightens but also draws the eye away from imperfections, so nobody has to know about the dark shadow under your eyes or the zit on your chin, because look, you’re shimmering, and it’s so pretty! Also, bonus: men don’t really know about this stuff, so when they see you glistening all over the place they just think you’re magic. What more could you ever want than for people to think you’re magic? That’s what I thought.

Choupette is suspiciously absent...

Well, that was quick! A little over a month ago, my personal Jesus, Karl Lagerfeld, announced plans to consummate the love that we’ve always known existed between him and Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura. Karl’s been known to use Shu products in an unorthodox way: rather than sketch out his sublime designs for Chanel in pencil or pen, Karl prefers to draw with Shu products for their endless array of vivid colors. The man behind the international makeup mecca, who was a personal friend of Lagerfeld, passed away in 2007, and that ended the brand’s retail in the States. Which is yet another reason to skip the store and take to the Internet for your makeup needs (particularly, the Shu Uemura e-store). Karl Lagerfeld partnered with Shu Uemura to create his limited-edition “Noël 2012″ line, and in light of the fated partnership, Karl appropriately synthesized “Japanese pop with European chic” to birth Mon Shu Girl, the adorable cartoon character he’s chosen as the face of his cosmetics debut. She’s no Choupette, of course, but we’ll take her! [Racked]

Kristen Stewart’s Hot Pink Lips Are The Perfect Low-Maintenance Accessory For Summer

Kristen vs. Charlize
Who looked fiercer at the Snow White premiere? Read More »

I have my doubts about Kristen Stewart’s capabilities as a dramatic actress, but I’ll gladly take her as a red carpet presence: in the last few months (or, really, publicity rounds) she seems to have emerged from her cocoon of hideously uncomfortable public awkwardness to flit around like a sneaker-clad fledgling butterfly (if only she would keep her damn hands out of her hair!). As far as beauty goes, the “Twilight” actress (duh) rarely ventures outside of a semi-safe smoky eye/nude lip or clean eye/red lip scheme, but this weekend’s appearance at Comic-Con saw her switching it up in the most on-trend way possible.

Mila Kunis is a force to be reckoned with: she’s the rare celebrity, or even human being (!), who is all at once beautiful, hilarious, intelligent, ballsy, self-deprecating, honest, and humble — at least, she appears to be all of those things. (Who said girls couldn’t be gorgeous and sidesplittingly funny? Oh yeah, that was you, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.) Every time I read a new interview with Mila, I’m consistently impressed by how well she carries herself and how “in touch” she is with real life and herself, and how much better she could do than Ashton Kutcher (though actually I’m erring on his side of favor what with Demi’s rumored brand of crazy).

Her August cover of Interview magazine reveals a soul-searching conversation with James Franco (a glorified “interview” between friends in Interview fashion) and an equally compelling photoshoot, but I’m really just partial to the front image. While I’ve been steering clear of eyeshadow and heavy-handed bronzer lately given the makeup-melting heat, this look is forcing me to reconsider my stance. It’s one of the simplest faces to create, but it’s so sultry and so effective, if “summer sexpot” is what you’re going for, and of course it is. Tips, tricks, and products, after the jump!
