Cara Delevingne’s latest Instagram video promoting YSL beauty products “starts with the lips” and ends with a make-out sesh. The lucky person on the other end of her pout, however, is not Michelle Rodriguez (at least not at the moment) but the super’s own reflection. What can we say, this ad takes narcissism to an entirely new level.
There was hardly a mouth moment to be found for Fall 2014 (according to makeup guru Pat McGrath, the eyes have it), but the lips laden with glitter at Rodarte left every beauty editor talking. Face painter James Kaliardos mixed mauve- and berry-colored bullets from NARS with a heavy dose of sparkle to create two bespoke shades for the catwalk. “I hope they actually make this,” he said backstage of his flashy formula. And it appears that Lipstick Queen was listening. To get the look straight off the shelf, try the brand’s Limited Edition Lipstick in Let Them Eat Cake. The lilac pigment laced with rose-gold shimmer is universally flattering and lends a metallic finish that mimics the one seen on the runway. Even better: No need to sip your meals through a straw to avoid ingesting glitter—the finely milled sparkle provides a futuristic frosty effect that doesn’t flake off.
The ladies who lunched with Louboutin today (like Emmy Rossum and Alessandra Ambrosio) broke out the flower crowns early—after all, there are still two weeks until Coachella. Blooms aside, Rossum once again proved that purple—no matter where you wear it—paired with berry lips makes for a stunning spring combo. Either the Shameless actress is following Dita Von Teese on Instagram for beauty inspiration or she’s reading Style.com, but judging by our recent interview, we’re just going to assume it’s the latter.
I love the idea of a stain in that it’s an all-in-one product that produces a sheer wash of color…if you can work fast enough. Too often, it leaves streaks where there should be an effortless flush, and emphasizes the cracks in my parched winter lips. The new wave of one-stop wonders—like Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Kiss & Blush and Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato—encapsulate the pigment in a creamy, easy-to-blend mousse. Inspired by the age-old lipstick-on-the-cheeks trick employed by women in a rush, this matte (but not drying) formula can be dotted on the apples and mouth via a soft, doe-foot applicator and layered on to intensify. In comparison with the rouge of yesteryear, these tubes appear to be keeping pace with today’s modern, multitasking woman—and her all-too-often back-of-a-cab makeup job.
There were quite a few contenders for best beauty move of the week—among them, the steel underliner sported by Zoë Kravitz and mixed metal bobbies Emma Watson wore to one side. Here, our five remaining red-carpet favorites.
