Emma Watson’s Next-Level Orange Lip

-------

"Noah" New York Premiere - Outside ArrivalsEmma Watson has been killing it on the red carpet in terms of her beauty look—from a strip of metallic bobby pins in Madrid to her traffic-cone orange lip at last night’s premiere of Noah in New York City. Designers also loved a loud mouth on the Spring 2014 runways (including Rag & Bone, which took its first-ever lip adventure with a combo of Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival and ColorBurst Matte Balm in Mischievous), and the shade looks just as stunning on the red carpet with major lashes and an equally dazzling ear cuff. Well played, Watson, well played—keep the hits coming.

Flashback Friday: In Search of Bright Lights

-------

stella-tenantFlashback Fridays is a 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: Stella Tennant

The Moment: Nearly Neon

The Motivation: With New York fashion week right around the corner, now is the time we start wondering what beauty looks and trends we’ll discover at the tents (or, in the case of many a designer, the multiple off-site locations). Barely-there makeup was de rigueur last season, but there was the occasional jolt of color that brightened our day—take, for example, Gucci Westman’s traffic-stopping orange pouts at Rag & Bone. It may have been a first for Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, but Stella Tennant and readers of this 1995 issue of i-D were already well versed in the power of electro-tangerine lips. The model’s loud mouth is a prime example of what we’d love to see more of for Fall 2014 to counteract the cold, gray skies we’ll likely have to endure while schlepping from show to show.

Flashback Friday: Chop, Chop

The Models: Naomi Campbell and Kirsten Owen

The Moment: Cropped Cuts

The Motivation: Surfacing first at Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 show, where models were sent onto a wrecked-beach runway with razored blond wigs (made to appear as if a kid had cut into them), then again at Fendi, where choppy black mops reigned supreme, it’s clear that something big is happening with short, almost-hacked-off hair. Miley Cyrus was an early advocate of the look, and as we watched, horrified, Lena Dunham joined the cropped-lock crew on the season finale of Girls. For all intents and purposes, it seems that long, luscious strands are out, and short and shorn are in. Should we decide to go the same route, we’ll be taking inspiration from this Peter Lindbergh-lensed shot, featuring a baby-faced Naomi Campbell and Kirsten Owen sporting the color that’s now trending: platinum.

Put Some Spring in Your Step (and Your Makeup Bag)

Designers dabbled with an extensive palette of pastels for Spring 2014—from kicky ice blue skirts and lilac Mary Janes at Miu Miu, to sherbet-colored, ruffled shift dresses, and ostrich plume-adorned, peach slingbacks at Rochas. Given the blustery weather, however, it doesn’t appear that any of the aforementioned options would be a go today. One way to get in on the action early (blizzards be damned!) is to wear these shades on your eyes, cheeks, lips, nails, and strands. Shop this week’s Style Hunter for a range of beauty finds in Easter egg hues to get you through the darkest days of winter.

Flashback Friday: Crowning Glory

The Model: Laetitia Firmin-Didot

The Moment: Bold Baubles

The Motivation: There was many a gem on the Spring 2014 runways—and we’re not talking about your standard bangle or statement necklace. The soft, braided updos at Dolce & Gabbana were laden with treasures, ranging from leaves to antiquelike gold coins. Jason Wu got in on the action with rose gold barrettes, while a sprinkling of iridescent flowers decorated ponytails at Honor. And it’s not just this season that we saw various accessories affixed to models’ heads: For Fall 2013, Rodarte offered up barbed-wire headbands, Meadham Kirchhoff embraced diamante barrettes, and Dolce & Gabbana once again sent out a bevy of luxurious crowns (this time inspired by the Byzantine Empire). While we don’t suggest you head to work wearing a tiara, we do encourage the use of a few choice jewels—such as the subtle yet elegant choices in this image, shot by Neil Kirk for British Vogue.
