Sky Ferreira is no stranger to sparkle. In fact, when I first met the catwalker-turned-singer, she was wearing bedazzled Saint Laurent stockings (the same pair she sported on the way to the hospital after she injured herself onstage in California during Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz tour). But it isn’t just her gams that are getting the glimmer treatment—her makeup artist, Amy Chance, has been sticking to a combo of Make Up For Ever lilac glitter and Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss lipstick in 107 for the past week. The cat-eye shape Ferreira is so fond of is reminiscent of the sixties-inspired black wings expertly sketched on lids at Saint Laurent’s Fall 2014 show, while the shimmery aspect might as well have stemmed from the twinkling Mary Janes models wore on their feet. Combine the two ideas together and it’s a match made in makeup heaven.
Not only was the slightly longer sleeve length on Kate Bosworth’s tee (part of her new line for Topshop, launching today) completely perfect, an observation made by Style.com’s in-house T-shirt aficionada and photo editor, but her deep side part was an ideal complement to her casual look. While Bosworth’s dividing line wasn’t clean-cut and perfect—reminding me of the rocker-inspired styles seen at Saint Laurent this season—the feminine curls and pink-stained lips added an element of easy elegance to her half-tucked top and jeans.
The Model: Milla Jovovich
The Moment: Nineties Grunge
The Motivation: If you haven’t already noticed, the nineties are back. From Hedi Slimane’s grunge collection for Saint Laurent to just about everybody else’s obsession with midriff tops, fashion is on repeat. And beauty insiders, for the most part, have taken the same route. On the red carpet and in editorials, there’s a return to the nude face and the no-makeup-makeup look popularized by supes like Linda, Christy, and Naomi. So it’s no surprise we’re slightly obsessed with this Peter Lindbergh-lensed shot of Milla Jovovich. Her clean skin, smudged eyeliner, and slicked-back, slightly mussed-up pompadour are everything we want to embrace this summer.

Throwback Thursday is a new feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Kate Moss
The Moment: Burgundy lips, in their original glory.
The Motivation: Not that we need a reason to celebrate Ms. Moss’ illustrious career, but the super-est of them all did celebrate her thirty-ninth birthday this week and hasn’t lost a beat since she shot this 1993 editorial for Vogue Paris. If the four hundred-plus pages in her recently released tome Kate: The Kate Moss Book weren’t enough visual evidence, this shot is yet another reminder of the ingenue’s timeless appeal: Fall’s favorite burgundy lipstick looks fresh and new on a 19-year-old Kate, who paired the pigment with clear, luminous skin, subtly lined eyes framed by thin, darkened brows, and a black Yves Saint Laurent topper that Hedi Slimane updated for his Spring 2013 Saint Laurent show. No wonder Moss was such an outspoken fan of the designer’s first collection.
