The Best of Met Gala Beauty Trends: Vampy Lips and Retro Waves



With summer on the horizon, everyone has beachy hair, sun-kissed skin, and dewy makeup on the brain. It’s always a welcome change in our beauty routine, though we can’t help but mourn the winter products we’ll soon have to retire. But based upon the many moody mouths that made their way down last night’s red carpet, we may not be tucking away our burgundy bullets so fast. Two of the major trends that surfaced—vampy lips and retro, side-parted waves—are typically reserved for cooler climes but looked stunning at the relatively balmy (at least in comparison to recent weather we’ve experienced) New York event. Some of our favorite moments? Suki Waterhouse’s classic wine shade; Beyoncé’s gothic hue, which played off her Philip Treacy veil; Adèle Exarchopoulos’ brown-tinged maroon pout; Joan Smalls’ shocking violet deftly paired with a soft braid; and Elettra Wiedemann’s ruby rouge, which matched her glittering gown. Dark lips were an edgy yet elegant choice—perfect for a night that otherwise offered up bow ties and ball gowns.


Retro, side-parted waves upped the glamour quotient even further. Cara Delevingne’s crop top and tuxedo pants (both by Stella McCartney) were far from traditional, but bouncy waves brushed to one side felt undeniably classic. Short-haired stars such as Taylor Swift and Reese Witherspoon added big, loose curls à la Grace Kelly, and Kim Kardashian, Blake Lively, and Riley Keough turned up with long, Veronica Lake-esque ringlets.

Our best tips for sporting these trends through the summer? Skip matte foundation, which would look too heavy-handed with dark lips, and invest in a humidity-blocking spray (like Oribe Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray) to keep your retro waves sleek and shiny.

Blond and Blonder



And the wave of blonds continues with Naya Rivera, who sported a new honey hue (which looks eerily similar to Kim Kardashian’s current color) at last night’s People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles. Kate Mara also appears to have lightened up—transitioning from gold to platinum. We’ll add her to the list of catwalkers who have entered icier territories in the recent months.

After almost a year of legal battles, the Kardashian sisters have finally agreed to change the name of their cosmetics range from Khroma Beauty to Kardashian Beauty, to avoid having to pay the copyright holder of the Kroma cosmetics brand $10 million in damages. [Daily Mail]

First came the news that Amanda Seyfried would be the new face of Givenchy’s Very Irresistible fragrance, and now comes the TV ad for the perfume starring the Lovelace actress. It’s a little spaghetti Western, a little nouvelle vague, and it’s got a lot of attitude. [YouTube]

Proof, at long last, that Patrick Swayze does have a calming effect.

Rita Ora Goes Long (Again); Perfume For The People; And More…


If you thought Rita Ora had cut her long hair into a shoulder-grazing crop, as we did when pictures surfaced of the R&B star’s new style last week, you were wrong. Kind of. Ora is back to her long, flowing platinum locks, thanks to some well-placed extensions. [DailyMail]

Implementing an interesting direct-to-consumer model, Commodity, a new fragrance brand currently in its Kickstarter phase, uses organic materials to create fine fragrances that are bottled in California. Selecting your own signature scent is as easy as creating a scent profile online that allows the company to send you testers in the mail before you make a final decision as to which bottle you’d like to purchase, free from the cluttered, department store fragrance floor environment—and the advertising budgets that might make a similar flacon cost twice as much. Consider us intrigued. [Esquire]
