The colored mascara trend started off strong this summer, with Chanel and Dior both releasing Technicolor tubes, and Solange Knowles finally showed the world how to wear it last night at the Video Music Awards. In an interview with Elle.com, Knowles said her makeup artist dipped the ends of her fringe in a “heavy red pigment” to achieve “the density of a full black lash.” For the rest of us who aren’t up against a flurry of flashbulbs, get a similar look in just a few swipes with Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Rouge Noir. Jourdan Dunn opted for a chop by hair pro Renda Attia (styled by Larry Sims)—hacking off that gorgeous halo of curls we loved last week. (For the record, we’re just as envious of her sleek strands.) And Rita Ora made a significant investment in her Azature manicure—showing off ruby red stiletto nails studded with spiders that reportedly cost $56K. Iggy Azalea might have brought the booty to the stage for their performance of “Black Widow,” but the Brit’s tips had plenty of swagger.
Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Carolyn Murphy’s sleek knot and Cara Delevingne’s bronzed eyes). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Zoë Kravitz, 2014 Met Ball, New York
Now that spring has finally sprung, our favorite girls are upping their red-carpet game with bold, attention-grabbing hues. At Monday’s star-studded Met ball, Kravitz played up her crimson dress with a daring red eye, a color that came courtesy of Chanel’s Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color in Incandescente.
Rihanna, Dior’s Resort 2015 Show, Brooklyn, New York
Super-high ponies are having a serious moment (remember Cara’s take?). Rihanna teamed hers with a bold red lip and pastel nails for Dior’s Resort show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Suki Waterhouse, Burberry’s Dinner for the New Museum, New York
The swinging sixties were a major reference on the Fall ’14 runways, and we love the idea of mod-inflected beauty. Waterhouse opted for a Brigitte Bardot-like, half-up hair look and smudgy charcoal shadow for a Burberry dinner on Wednesday.
Solange Knowles, Creative Time Gala, New York
Some of the best beauty advice we’ve heard is to stick with your natural hair texture. Knowles opted for a halo of big, natural curls, then expertly matched her lipstick to her poppy dress.
Janelle Monáe, Met Ball, New York
We love a girl with a signature look. Monáe and her trademark pouf exploded on the scene a few years ago, and for this year’s Met ball she added a long braid.
Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Isabel Lucas’ underliner and Emma Roberts’ soft waves). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Camilla Belle; Carolina Herera Celebrates Her Archive Collection; Beverly Hills, CA
While there was nary a bold lip in sight on the Fall ’14 runways (with the exception of Rihanna in the front row), the celeb set is still feeling a statement pout. Camilla Belle opted for an icy pastel hue, similar to the shades spotted at Prabal Gurung’s Spring ’14 show.
Emma Roberts; Palo Alto Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival; New York, NY
We caught up with Roberts earlier this week to check out her pre-gala beauty routine. Last night, she wowed us again with super-sleek strands and a classic crimson mouth.
Emmy Rossum; Carolina Herera Celebrates Her Archive Collection; Beverly Hills, CA
Rossum always nails it with new beauty trends, but we love this ultra-feminine look. You just can’t go wrong with girly pink lips and a glossy blow-out.
Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Premiere; New York, NY
We’re quickly becoming lip gloss converts. Stones’ strawberry pout looked fresh (not sticky) with a slightly-smoky eye.
Solange Knowles; Q&Q Launch Event; New York, NY
We love an unexpected color combo: Knowles expertly teamed her lemon-yellow Christopher Kane sweatshirt and skirt with bright fuschia lips. (Get the look with Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour in La Diva.)
Last night’s launch party for Choo.08 (a line of more practical, sporty footwear from Jimmy Choo) in Beverly Hills celebrated accessories, but there were also plenty of covetable beauty looks on display. Similar to shoe shopping, it’s hard to single out just one hairstyle or makeup move and label it my favorite, so I thought I’d feature all of the standout moments (like Solange Knowles’ tangerine liner, Sandra Choi’s buzzed crop, and Emmy Rossum’s inky eyes and inventive nail art) from the evening’s fete: Click here to see the slideshow.
A bold blazer and an even bolder lid look on Solange Knowles.
Make the most of your moons with evil eyes like Emmy Rossum.
…or try metallic navy shadow in lieu of basic black.

Compared to her older sis Beyoncé, who tends to stick to a consistent beauty routine (perfect highlighted, wavy locks; tawny makeup with a bit of shimmer; and a neutral pout), Solange Knowles takes a more adventurous approach, and has recently experimented with everything from lengthy box braids reminiscent of Janet Jackson circa Poetic Justice to vibrant red-orange lipstick straight out of a J.Crew catalog. Last night, the ever-present singer performed at Atlantis Super Wash Center in Brooklyn, for The Fader‘s #uncapped series, rocking edgy turquoise floating “banana” eyeliner in a crescent shape just above her curled lashes. It made us recall Dick Page’s work backstage at the Michael Kors Spring ’13 show (right) and, more recently, the electric-blue kohl under-liner from Chanel’s Resort runway (left). What do you think of Solange’s blue period?
