Best in Beauty: The Celebrity Looks That Killed It

-------

top-5-beauty-looks-camilla-belle-chanel-iman-kate-bosworth-jourdan-dunn-emma-stone

Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Solange Knowles’ tangerine eyeliner and Lupita N’yongo’s graphic wing). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.

Camilla Belle; Jimmy Choo’s Choo.08 Party; Beverly Hills, CA

When you’re wearing prim neutrals, add a loud mouth to keep things youthful. Belle opted for MAC’s nearly-neon Retro Matte lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous.

Chanel Iman; Spotify Brunch at the Soho Desert House; La Quinta, CA

You know we love a good dye job. Chanel Iman rocked the trend at Coachella with rainbow streaks of pink and teal.

Kate Bosworth; Alexander Wang x H&M Party; Indio, CA

Coachella veteran Kate Bosworth knows how to beat the heat in style. Laid-back waves and flushed cheeks (à la Stella McCartney FW14) looked effortless and fresh.

Jourdan Dunn; StyleCaster + UGG Coachella Party; Villa Sereno, CA

Blue eyeliner typically conjures up bad prom photos from the eighties. But Jourdan Dunn’s take—worn on the lower lash line with bare skin—looks as cool as her snow cone (and conjures up memories of Chanel’s most recent Resort show).

Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Premiere; Berlin, Germany

This Amazing Spider-Man 2 star has been sporting some winning beauty looks as of late. Bouncy, flapper-inspired curls and a wash of pale blue eyeshadow played off her Chanel dress.

Bangs Are Having a Moment—Again

-------

I’m going to borrow a line from the esteemed film Legally Blonde to describe the beauty move catwalker Karen Elson debuted on Instagram yesterday: She got bangs. Her hair is so now. Fringe is having a moment (fellow model Grace Hartzel sported a covetable rock-and-roll version of the trend in the Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2014 lookbook shot by Hedi Slimane, and Jamie Bochert appeared on the cover of the latest issue of Style.com/Print wearing her signature set), which is interesting seeing as balmier weather is (let us pray) almost upon us and the effect it has on bangs isn’t pretty (think strands stuck to forehead). But humidity be damned—whether you wear them long and wavy like Hartzel and Bochert, or short and blunt like Elson, I think going under the scissors this spring is well worth the risk.

A GIF You’ve Gotta See: Soo Joo Park Looks on the Bright Side

Pick a color, any color. Our new Spring Beauty Guide inspired us to consider our hair a blank canvas with a rainbow of opportunities. Last night, Soo Joo Park—one of Style.com’s favorite models and a champion of the platinum trend—posted a selfie to Instagram showing off her fuzzy white wig and matching eyeliner on set. (Solange Knowles sported a similar look at Tuesday’s Jimmy Choo party, coordinating her lids to a tangerine skirt and blazer.) We got creative and imagined the Korean catwalker rocking several vibrant hues. Revisit our feature on colorful dye jobs to learn how to achieve and maintain the look. Or try L’Oréal Professionnel’s new Hairchalk, a water-based ink (ideal for commitment-phobes) that washes out in two to ten shampoos.

Kitchen Confidential: The Ultimate French Recipe for Shiny Hair

-------

josephine-cropThis column reveals the personal beauty recipes, homegrown remedies, and family concoctions that the industry’s trusted pros rely on for staying radiant.

From the Kitchen of: Olivia Chantecaille, founder of Chantecaille Beauté

“This is an old family recipe that my French grandmother passed down to my mom, who then shared it with me. I cherish it because it reminds me of them. But I like to put my own modern spin on it with a few additional pure ingredients. I do this treatment at the start of each new season, to help my hair adjust to the changing weather. It really works to make it stronger, shinier, and silkier. Plus, the rose water helps to balance out the pH of the hair and prevent breakage.”

One for the Recipe Box: Homemade Hair Treatment With Rose Water

1/4 cup of rose water
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup of rum
2 tablespoons of grape seed oil

“Beat the eggs thoroughly in a large bowl, add the rose water, rum, and oils. Mix the ingredients well. I apply the mask on towel-dried, not wet hair, which allows it to penetrate better. I start by massaging the mixture into the scalp and work my way down to the ends. Then I secure my hair in a chignon and let the mask soak in for thirty minutes. I finish by rinsing with cold water to seal the cuticle, eliminate frizz, and boost shine.”

The Best Non-Crunchy, Eco-Friendly Beauty Products

-------

Eco, at least when it comes to beauty, often equates to products that leave much to be desired as far as aesthetics are concerned and stink to high heaven once you slather them on. I’ve never been into the “natural” scent that normally consists of a combination of patchouli and some rare botanical handpicked from a far-flung field. I’m all for saving the planet and minimizing my carbon footprint, but as an eighties child who was raised on synthetics (my diet consisted of Lucky Charms and I doused myself in cucumber melon body spritz), it’s difficult to make the switch to good-for-you (and the planet) ingredients and packaging. In this week’s Style Hunter, I round up the ten green and gorgeous finds that are helping me make the transition. Click here to discover my new stripped-down essentials.
