If you want to get on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s bad side, be negligent about tweezing. “That’s my pet peeve, bad eyebrows,” the Burberry Body face says. “Messy, badly plucked, thin. There’s a right eyebrow for every woman.” [People]
Despite that Rimmel contract, The New Girl star Zooey Deschanel claims that she “doesn’t wear a lot of makeup,” save for the occasional eyeliner. “I’m all bangs and eyes,” Deschanel says in the new issue of Allure. As for that signature fringe, she maintains it with a collection of staples from Oribe. [Fashion Etc.]
Dakota Fanning is the latest celeb to go pink. The Marc Jacobs Oh! Lola face was spotted sporting cotton candy tips in L.A. this week. And so the dip-dye domination continues. [Look]
When it comes to awards show manicures, Jessica Alba leaves the decisions to her 3-year-old daughter. “Honor did pick out my nail polish [for the Golden Globes],” the Revlon brand ambassador reveals. [Vogue.U.K.]
The giddy rush that your regular Beauty Counter correspondent and nail art pioneer, Celia Ellenberg, gets every time a new polish lands on her desk is precisely how I feel about lipstick. I may have makeup cases overflowing with tubes of every shade and brand, but still, each time I twist open a new bullet I can’t help but feel a tinge of excited anticipation. Red, in its myriad incarnations, is my constant go-to hue, but once spring arrives I like to broaden my palette. With that in mind, I have, after tireless testing, managed to narrow down my favorite spring lipstick releases. Here, the top ten.
Julie Hewett Jacqueline Bijou Lipstick
A pale pinky lilac inspired by a vintage photo of Jackie O.
Shu Uemura Égérie Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in Nude Beige
A classic cool nude that feels very sixties Shrimpton; for maximum effect, pair with a heavy, smoky eye.
Lancôme Color Design Matte Lipstick in Posh Pink
With none of the moisture-zapping chalkiness of its matte lipstick counterparts, the best new shade of the Mix & Matte collection is a clean, bright fuchsia.
$22, exclusively at Macy’s and www.lancome-usa.com.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lip Colour in Berry Queen
A punchy, berry shade that is more pink than red; at a mere $7, it’s the perfect cheap thrill.
$7, at drugstores.
Josie Maran Argan-Infused Lipstick in Bambolina
A true cotton candy pink that’s totally natural, so your tendency to lick off your lip color won’t be such a bad thing.
YSL Rouge Volupté in Rose Paris
Don’t be fooled by the name; this is no rose. More like a flashy orange-pink hybrid.
NARS Lipstick in Cruising
A dusty rose-tinged beige inspired by Catherine Deneuve in La Chamade.
Guerlain Rouge G Le Brillant in Brit
A sparkling light pink that has the signature, ridiculously delicious Guerlain lipstick scent.
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Coral
Research has shown that lipstick is an instant mood-lifter, and this intense orangey coral is like happiness in tube form.
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Grape
Purple lipstick has graced many a runway; this deep grape is sheer, so it doesn’t feel too goth-y, making it a great darker hue for spring.
Zooey Deschanel: actress, singer-songwriter, beauty muse? The doll-eyed brunette just inked a deal to front new ads for Rimmel London later this year, joining fellow spokeswomen Kate Moss, Georgia Jagger, and Coco Rocha. [WWD]
While Deschanel dabbles in makeup, Jennifer Aniston is reportedly trying her hand at fragrance. Don’t act so surprised; it was bound to happen eventually. [OK!]
Sally Hershberger, she of Manhattan’s famed $800 haircut, is launching a prestige haircare line as a follow-up to her mass collection. “Salon,” as it’s called, will have its HSN debut on Monday, when Hershberger and her pricey fingers will be using the products on real women with “bad hair”—a live television task that she says could be “the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” And the suspense mounts. Set your DVRs. [WWD]
If you want the fuller brows that have been showing up in a range of shapes, colors, and sizes on the Fall runways, but over-plucking in years past has left you little to work with, have no fear: Eyebrow transplants are here! [Daily Mail]
Fashion enthusiasts are counting down the days until their favorite glossies release their September issues, but the mystery of at least one cover girl has been solved. Kate Moss appears on the front of British Vogue‘s fall spectacular in a cleavage-bearing Burberry trench with one hell of a black cat-eye and her blond locks in a loose 1950′s-era set. Curiously, the super-est of them all has no editorial spread to accompany her cover image, but no matter; there’s enough intrigue in that one picture to keep us content. Moss wears a face full of Rimmel makeup, which seems to confirm that her lucrative contract with the beauty firm is alive and well despite ongoing reports of a split. Meanwhile, the expert hand that painted on those precise eye-framing lines belongs to one Val Garland, editorial makeup artist and artistic advisor for YSL Beauté. The model will also front the campaign for that brand’s new Parisienne fragrance, due out in October. Thoughts on the cover image?
Love her or hate her, you must admit there’s something compelling about Jennifer Aniston—no, we’re not talking about her personal life here (nor her GQ cover, for that matter). She’s pretty much got the rom-com thing nailed and has been enjoyable in other, less predictable on-screen formats as well (two words: Office Space). We attribute her success to her girl-next-door, all-American, plain-and-simple-but-still-sexy appeal. According to makeup artist Angela Levin, who readied Ms. Aniston for the Marley & Me premiere last night in L.A., the actress’ all-natural look is 100 percent intentional: “She just wants to look and feel great and happy.” Us too—she is so relatable! See below for Levin’s tips on how to put it all together:
To prep Aniston’s face, Levin used By Terry Lift and Stretch antioxidant serum around her eyes to smooth skin before applying just a touch of Lorac Natural Performance Foundation in NP6. To add a bit of sun-kissed contour, Levin used Rimmel’s Sun Shimmer in medium matte and brushed Bobbi Brown’s Bronzing Powder from Aniston’s temples along her cheekbones. For a rosy glow on the apples of Aniston’s cheeks, Levin mixed a Chanel Crème Lipstick in Coco Red with a hydrating lip treatment and a dab of Sephora Blush Me! in Rose Rebelle 1.
For some (very) understated drama, Levin blended Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Silvery toward the outer corners of Aniston’s eyes, using the same product in Slate on the lids. She topped this off with Nars Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Violetta on the center of the lids and under the lower lashes as a light smoky liner.
With access to a whole host of professional and as-yet-unreleased goodies, Levin dipped into her arsenal and treated Aniston’s lips to Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2009 Glossimer in Mica.
