Rihanna was surprisingly understated. Rita Ora was predictably red. And Lupita Nyong’o made glasses look glamorous. Here, we count down the best beauty looks from last night: click to view the slideshow.
The Face Painter: Chanel celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin
The Face: In an effort to amp up the Amazing Spider-Man star’s black Martin Grant bustier top and white skirt, Goodwin decided to boost Stone’s porcelain skin so it looked as though “[she] had spent a day at the beach.” Going for a look that was “slightly sun-kissed,” Goodwin topped a light base of Chanel Le Blanc Sheer Illuminating Base with Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup in Nude, a foundation that was two shades darker than Stone’s natural skin tone. A touch of Chanel Powder Blush in In Love on the apples of her cheeks and a dusting of its Natural Finish Pressed Powder imparted a velvety finish.
The Eyes: Incorporating a “classic eye” into the mix, Goodwin blended neutral shades from Chanel’s Quadra Eye Shadow in Prelude across Stone’s lids, lining the upper lash line with a black flick courtesy of Revlon Liquid Liner in Blackest Black. Goodwin then slicked on a few coats of its Grow Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black before filing in Stone’s brows with Chanel’s Sculpting Eye Brow Pencil in Brun Natural.
The Lips: Since joining forces a few years back, statement lips have become a big part of Goodwin and Stone’s face-painting repertoire. Last night was no exception. “The lip was the focal point of the look,” according to Goodwin, who traced Revlon’s Just Kissable Lipstick in Rendezvous, a bright coral, onto Stone’s mouth.
The Result: Pioneering beauty that was 100 percent worth honoring.
Scented perfume strips have gone digital. Turns out, interactive fragrance advertising is the wave of the future thanks to some new computer technology that makes perfume accords printable—and sniffable. Plus, the iAroma is coming, too; oh yes, it is. [Independent]
It’s summer and sun-phobia is at a high, which means self-tanner—celebrity-branded and otherwise—is a hot topic. While there hasn’t been much innovation in the field, ingredient-wise (all of those natural-formula claims are typically just hype), there is a whole new crop of sprays, mousses, creams, and gels hitting the market to turn you that coveted shade of orange-brown. So mind the streakage and remember that gradual color is the way to go. [NYT]
Or you could just make like the Jersey Shore cast and go super-dark, super-fast. The Situation, DJ Pauly D, JWoww, and Snooki will all presumably be boosting their bronze for the MTV Movie Awards this weekend, where they will be presenters. Snooki will also reportedly be a news correspondent on the red carpet and has a few special words planned for Robert Pattinson: “I’m going to say, ‘You need to go tanning, but you’re really hot.’ ” A bronze-skinned Edward Cullen? Blasphemous! [MTV.com]
In the sea of Disney teen queens parading down the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards last night, it was hard to miss Megan Fox. As if the Transformers star’s slicked-back raven locks cascading into a row of waves down the open back of her Dolce minidress wasn’t enough to draw the eye, she went with minimal makeup, using just a few coats of mascara and a bright orange lip to showcase her perfect, she’s-only-23-years-old skin. Sadly there was no “total knockout” award at the ceremony last night, but had there been, she would have gone home a winner. Anyone else want to weigh in on the look?
