From London to Los Angeles, it was all about liner last night. Across the pond for Kate Moss’ Topshop launch, model Suki Waterhouse relied on makeup pro Charlotte Tilbury and her crew (as did Moss, Cara Delevingne, and Sienna Miller) to amp up her look from an earlier photo shoot. “We had to do a quick off-on turnaround to do the right base for the red carpet,” said Tilbury. The face painter’s eponymous Rock ‘N’ Kohl in Bedroom Black was applied in a feline shape, then smoked out underneath with shadow. On the other end of the eyeliner spectrum in sunny California, Jessica Biel opted for a subtle, sophisticated gray etched along her top lashes only. Whether you want to channel that cool Cali girl vibe, or become a badass Brit, it’s apparently as easy as picking up a pencil.
In our new video series, Beauty Icons, makeup artist Kayleen McAdams—whose client list includes Lily Collins, Jessica Biel, Olivia Wilde, Kat Dennings, and, yes, her sister Rachel—breaks down iconic looks, both past and present, step by step. When asked about her own beauty signature, she said, “I feel like most makeup artists say they like to do eyes, but I love to do lips—I have big lips, so I love a big pop of color. Being a makeup artist is often like being the cobbler’s children who don’t have shoes: I don’t generally wear a ton of makeup on a day-to-day basis, so I just put on some powder, a little mascara, and pop on a lipstick and I’m ready.” Her go-to shade at the moment: CK One Color Shine Lipstick in Rockin (a sheer lavender), and for night she slicks on Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick in Playful (a matte purple) underneath. In her earlier days, however, a simple Bonne Bell brown liner—a coveted product in Canada—was her object of affection. “I remember we went to New York City on some kind of a class trip, and I bought this specific [shade] that I saw in Teen magazine, it was called Pecan Brown. It really was the best brown eyeliner. I would wear that all the time—it was one of my signature things because I have blue eyes so it would go really well. I had that eyeliner until I moved about a year ago and finally got rid of it. I’m a bit of a makeup hoarder.” And in the making of our tutorials, it was also a liner look that she surprisingly enjoyed the most: “I loved the Brigitte Bardot eye because I don’t do a big eye on myself a lot. I guess I should take my own advice, because I always thought a big eye doesn’t really work for me, but then I did it and I was like, ‘It does work for me.’ My boyfriend even said, ‘Oh, I love it—that’s a sexy eye.’” Tune in every Friday to see the how-to and more of McAdams in action.
When celebrities take a risk, I have to applaud, as there’s only so much red lipstick and glow-y skin one writer can rave about. Whether it was the bright strokes of emerald liner Jessica Biel wore to the MoMA Film Benefit honoring Tilda Swinton last night (shades of Chanel Resort 2014), or Coco Rocha lashing out for a luncheon in Australia (falsies for day, why not?), this dynamic duo deserves a slow clap for their beauty bravery.
Full disclosure: We had no idea Zooey Deschanel was at the Met Ball last night, until numerous sources credited her to that seersucker Tommy Hilfiger gown—and a fringe-free face! The New Girl star was downright unrecognizable without her signature brow-grazing bangs. [Perez Hilton]
Just as we were getting ready to lament the lack of punk piercings on last night’s red carpet, save for the bevy of jewel-encrusted ear cuffs that made the rounds, we took a closer look at Jessica Biel, only to discover that Mrs. Justin Timberlake had slipped on a septum ring for the occasion. Well played. [Daily Mail]
Botox, meet Frotox. The purified botulinum-toxin alternative consists of injecting liquid nitrogen into nerves that control wrinkles, causing fine lines to “hibernate” for up to four months. [Jezebel]
Many celebs used the Costume Institute’s punk theme as an excuse to go all out with their nail art, which made for highlights like Blake Lively’s purposely chipped foils, Rita Ora’s gilded talons, and Nicole Richie’s fancy moon manicure, pictured above. [Celebrityredcarpet.co.uk]
In other nail news, Marc Jacobs’ team has leaked another shade of the polish in his forthcoming beauty range with Sephora—as well as the line’s official launch date: August 9, 2013. [Instagram]
With bangs making a big statement on the Spring runways at shows like Prada, MiuMiu, and Yohji Yamamoto, certain style-conscious A-listers—and one very fashion-forward First Lady—followed suit, making the trend official. As MObama pointed out in an interview just a few months ago, though, bangs can get “a little irritating” after a while, and their awkward grow-out phase isn’t much better. But Jessica Biel, who snipped her brow-grazing fringe back in the fall, would beg to differ. Having mastered the side sweep and the bejeweled clip, which served to keep shorter front sections of her honeyed hair firmly secured behind her ear at Tiffany’s Blue Book Ball last week, Mrs. Justin Timberlake is making it look easy. Last night, at Time‘s 100 Gala in New York, she even embraced a center-parted split! Which fashionably functional style do you like best?
