Typically reserved for fall, a berry pout made a significant resurgence during the steamy months. Take Cara Delevingne’s deep purple lips, for example, which she paired with smoky eyes at the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation gala in Saint-Tropez. Another favorite: French actress Adèle Exarchopoulos’ look at this year’s Met Gala. The Blue Is the Warmest Color star’s Bordeaux-colored mouth and Hollywood waves upped the glamour factor and didn’t seem the least bit moody. And speaking of the Met Gala, no list of beauty favorites would be complete without a nod to a Givenchy-clad Beyoncé, whose oxblood lips were just the right kind of Gothic. We’re partial, however, to Kate Hudson’s subtly frosted iteration (yes, frosted), which she sported at the screening of her new film, Wish I Was Here, early last month. Whether you prefer a dark, Lorde-like maroon or a bright-but-still-bold raspberry, we plan to continue this trend long after summer days drift into cool, crisp nights.
Kate Hudson is on a roll. The mother of two, who just seems to get better and better-looking with time, wowed at the Tiffany Blue Book Ball last week, not to mention at the Golden Globes in January, where her Alexander McQueen keyhole gown helped her top many a best-dressed list. But while the Almay global brand ambassador’s beauty moments—which typically include blonde waves and smoky lids—provide constant blog fodder, it’s rare that she embraces nail art with as much gusto. That’s why her tips caught our eye at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of The Reluctant Fundamentalist last night in New York. To add a bit of finger flair to her beaded Jenny Packham turtleneck dress (and that impressive engagement ring from fiancé Matt Bellamy), Hudson chose a cotton-candy-pink polish that she topped with metallic silver French tips, a color combination ripped right off the Chanel Couture Fall 2012 runway. Thoughts on Hudson’s mani moves?

A Hollywood upbringing earned Kate Hudson more than just a leg up in the biz: Apparently, playing with products from mom Goldie Hawn’s makeup artist’s case as a child gave Hudson an early appreciation for cosmetics, which led her to become an application wiz. The actress and Almay spokeswoman apparently does her own makeup for premieres and often plays face painter to a select group of friends as well. [People]

All of those fifties-era cat-eyes from the Spring runways may be ill advised if you want to be taken seriously. A new study reveals that “natural” and “professional” makeup looks increase the perception others have of your attractiveness, competence, likability, and trustworthiness, while more “glamorous” looks make you seem dishonest.

What’s Karen O’s secret weapon for the opening of her hyped “psycho opera” that premieres tonight in Brooklyn? Makeup artist Mike Potter. “[He] is a phenomenon.

Courtney Love’s latest role? Makeup thief. The Hole front woman was recently accused of rifling through purses belonging to the female members of the band the Axis to “see if they had any makeup for her to use.” And she just told us that she was swearing off heavy cosmetics, too. [NYDN]
At 77, Joan Collins is swearing off Botox. “It frightens me,” she says of cosmetic surgery in general. “Botox, I think, is poison, I would never put it into my face.” So how does she maintain her Dynasty-era looks? Good genes and a good skincare regime. “I’m appalled at the amount of women who don’t bother to take care of their skin.” Take that, all you negligent gals out there. [Daily Mail]
