Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Isabel Lucas’ underliner and Emma Roberts’ soft waves). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Camilla Belle; Carolina Herera Celebrates Her Archive Collection; Beverly Hills, CA
While there was nary a bold lip in sight on the Fall ’14 runways (with the exception of Rihanna in the front row), the celeb set is still feeling a statement pout. Camilla Belle opted for an icy pastel hue, similar to the shades spotted at Prabal Gurung’s Spring ’14 show.
Emma Roberts; Palo Alto Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival; New York, NY
We caught up with Roberts earlier this week to check out her pre-gala beauty routine. Last night, she wowed us again with super-sleek strands and a classic crimson mouth.
Emmy Rossum; Carolina Herera Celebrates Her Archive Collection; Beverly Hills, CA
Rossum always nails it with new beauty trends, but we love this ultra-feminine look. You just can’t go wrong with girly pink lips and a glossy blow-out.
Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Premiere; New York, NY
We’re quickly becoming lip gloss converts. Stones’ strawberry pout looked fresh (not sticky) with a slightly-smoky eye.
Solange Knowles; Q&Q Launch Event; New York, NY
We love an unexpected color combo: Knowles expertly teamed her lemon-yellow Christopher Kane sweatshirt and skirt with bright fuschia lips. (Get the look with Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour in La Diva.)
When I arrive at the Mercer Hotel where Emma Roberts is primping for the New Yorkers for Children Fool’s Fête, the actress is curled up in white sweatpants and a black crop top she picked up moments ago from nearby Topshop. “In twenty years [kids] are going to look back at pictures and say, ‘Can you believe they walked around wearing a crop top, that’s so embarrassing,’” quips Roberts. “It’s going to be the demise of our generation.” Her secret to getting those crop-top-worthy abs, however, is anything but gimmicky: “I worked out. A lot. I realized the only way to get abs is sit-ups—you can go around it as much as you want, but if you want abs, you have to do the sit-ups. I started working out with Andrea Orbeck—she [trains] some of the Victoria’s Secret girls, so I was like, ‘Done. Help me!’” In addition to crunches, the actress also heads to yoga “realistically once a week.” She adds, “It’s more about feeling good. I’m never going to be ripped every day of my life.”
Flat tummy aside, she’s not against indulging in carbs (her pre-red-carpet ritual normally includes iced coffee, French fries, and a dessert), an action that caused her to recently get pulled over. “I was eating a mini bagel, actually, and I was driving to work. There was a cop on a motorcycle, and I smiled at him because I always smile at cops. Then he pulled me over and he said, ‘You just made eye contact with me. You know you were doing something wrong.’ I was like, ‘What do you mean?’ He said, ‘I saw you talking on your phone.’ I said, ‘No, I was eating a bagel,’ and the bagel was in my lap.” (For the record, the ticket stated that Roberts was talking on a black iPhone, when her mobile is very much hot pink.) To make matters worse, Roberts had forgotten her license at home, which had flooded the day before—a minor mishap that earned her a second ticket. “I was so upset—I felt so ripped off. He had no mercy,” she says.
Despite her recent write-up over breakfast, the preparations for the night’s gala go off without a hitch. Hair pro Ryan Trygstad adds a few “Chloé-inspired” waves to Roberts’ bob and finishes with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. Makeup artist Nick Barose creates flushed cheeks via a dusting of pink blush and a rosy lip with Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Bright Berry, which he makes more stain-like by tapping it onto Roberts’ mouth. “I wanted to do something girly, flirty, easy, and not too overdone,” the actress explains. In lieu of a long gown, a ruffled Chloé shift from the Summer 2014 collection and heeled booties fit the bill. Roberts says she specifically requested closed-toe shoes to hide her “Coachella feet.” (She doesn’t have many “hang-ups,” she admits, but feet are one of them.) The finishing touch: a generous misting of Roses de Chloé, which she applies to her neck first, then spreads by rubbing her wrists over top. “When I travel a lot, everything gets kind of gross, so I’m always spraying perfume in the suitcase and then shutting it,” she adds. “It starts to wear off [your clothes] and smells like your natural self.”
In less than an hour, her transformation is complete and we have covered a myriad of topics, ranging from how Coachella has evolved (“The first year I went, five or six years ago, and it was much more grunge, every man for himself,” she said. “And now it’s like, ‘Come over to the Patrone tent.’”) to SnapChat, her recent addiction (“It’s so funny—if you have funny friends. If your friends are lame, then it’s boring.”). Roberts’ “hot date” for the soiree is not her fiancé, Evan Peters (though he supervises the getting-ready process), but a close girlfriend. “I’ve gone to some things alone and it’s always the awkward standing in the corner, like sipping your champagne, pretending, ‘I totally know everyone here.’ Instagram!” While I’ve pulled that very same trick a time or twenty, somehow I can’t imagine the bubbly, caffeine-fueled Roberts ever being a wallflower.
Here, behind-the-scenes snaps from our beauty pre-game:

Katie Holmes’ debut ads as the first-ever global brand ambassador for Bobbi Brown cosmetics are making the rounds this week.

What’s the secret to Emma Roberts’ flawless complexion? She’s only 21, for starters. But the It’s Kind of a Funny Story actress credits the Beauty Blender for her perfect skin. “It’s my favorite thing,” Roberts says of the pink, egg-shaped sponge. “You have to get it wet, put it under warm water, and then squeeze it out really well, and then it just makes your foundation go on really dewy and nice. I always have one in my bag all the time.” [Hollywood Life]
Cate Blanchett benefits from some serious airbrushing in her ads for SK-II, the Japanese skincare brand that she reps hard. But on the latest cover of The Economist‘s Intelligent Life magazine, Blanchett goes sans digital retouching, revealing her smile lines, faint bags under her eyes, and some very subtle crow’s feet. And you know what? She’s still drop-dead gorgeous. [msnbc]
Susan Sarandon keeps getting similarly better-looking. “I’ve had some lipo under my chin and under my eyes,” the Jeff, Who Lives at Home star says, while admitting that she’ll consider Botox “as long as doctors don’t go overboard.” But as far we’re concerned, Sarandon seems to be doing just fine without it.

Jared Leto has been named the new face of Hugo Just Different. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman and former My So Called Life heartthrob will also take over as the face of Hugo Man, which was previously fronted by Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Unclear whether his penchant for color-changing mohawks will come through in the print ads. [WWD]

Her alternative: raw shea butter, which makes a great moisturizer. [International Business Times]
Speaking of going au naturel, Miranda Kerr is planning to expand into haircare with her organic line, KORA. For now, the Victoria’s Secret model and new mom has been using standouts from her Aussie skincare brand on her new baby, Flynn. “I love using the KORA Organics Rosehip Oil on him and sometimes mix it with the body lotion and give him little massages.” Adorable.
