We had a lot of beautiful looks to pore over this week, what with a fancy Vogue dinner and the 2013 Cannes Film Festival taking place, but we had to be selective and whittle our list of favourites down to 10. When it comes to the absolute best, no-holds-barred beauty looks of the week, we have to be wowed — and wowed we were when we caught sight of Cara Delevingne's Cannes look. It was dramatic, sexy and could've easily gone wrong. . . but it was so right. Jennifer Lawrence also opted for a bold lip, and speaking of bold, we were huge fans of Nicole Kidman's futuristic ponytail. On the other end of the spectrum was Zoe Saldana, looking better than ever with her face bare and hair au naturel. Click through to see who else made the cut!
Strap in as we keep up with what our fashion and beauty favourites have been up to this week! Top supermodel Coco Rocha landed in Sydney ahead of the very chic Bespoke summit, held at the Sydney Opera House during the week, while overseas, Sydney girl Phoebe Tonkin hung out (and looked stunning) with Jaime King. Celebrity stylist Romy Frydman took to Singapore to style Collette Dinnigan's runway collection, Rihanna rocked some Chanel flats and Miranda Kerr shared a new snap from Vogue Italia. . . But the cutest picture of the week? It has to go to Sienna Miller, glowing with happiness with her baby daughter on her lap (Marlowe's ponytail is so cute it hurts). Click through to see it all!
Yesterday marked the launch of Versus Versace, and the event was a star-studded affair. Celebrities like Heidi Klum and Hayden Panettiere stepped out sporting some seriously gorgeous beauty looks that almost distracted us from the beautiful clothing. Want to see more? Just keep clicking.
It's usually wise to stay away from sweeping generalisations, but it's pretty safe to say that red lipstick will never go out of style. From dark brick to candy apple, red lipstick has been a staple in makeup kits since the beginning of beauty time (whenever that was). On lips, this fiery hue conveys both sophistication and fearlessness. You'll find numerous shades for different skin tones, every occasion, and complementary eye-makeup ideas when you peruse this celebrity-inspired guide.
It's hard to pick up a magazine or browse the net without seeing Miss Zoe Saldana's beautiful mug gracing the space somewhere. Getting her cinematic start in 2000's Centre Stage (can you believe?), Zoe's become a household name — not just for her acting chops, but for her ace fashion choices and gorgeous hair and makeup looks at practically every event she goes to. Lately, we've seen lots of this lady — she's on the press circuit for Star Trek: Into Darkness, and she's been killing it every which way. Whether she's rocking a red lip (one of her makeup staples) or bouncing some flouncy curls, she always looks a million bucks. Ready for a beauty blast from the past? Come this way!
The Met Gala was always going to be a veritable visual feast, especially with this year's punk theme. . . But we sure didn't expect what Anne Hathaway and Nicole Richie gave us! Between Nicole's silver up 'do and Anne's peroxided crop, we were schooled in how to rock a dramatic new look that's pushing the boundaries. Also trying something new? Kate Bosworth with her freshly darkened hair, and the TV star who surprised the crowds with a new bob replacing her extra-long locks. Keeping safely in bounds? Miranda Kerr, who perfected the whole Hollywood glamour thing, care of some soft curls and a berry lip. Click through to see who else made our top 10!
Earlier this week Lauren Conrad hosted the launch of Malibu Island Spiced, and she wore a hot-pink lip colour that was perfect for the event's island theme. Lauren balanced her vibrant magenta shade with a subtle eye look. She skipped her signature cat eyeliner, opting for a smudged look along her top lashes instead. Tip: To keep your lipstick from smearing, apply a lip liner to the entire lip before applying a coordinating colour on top.
Between new haircuts, updated styles, slicked locks and lots of ombré, hair certainly stole the show in this week's celebrity beauty round-up. Nicole Richie set the pace with her first official appearance since she took a trip down fringe lane (hubby Joel Madden didn't notice — ah, men), while Kate Middleton mixed things up with wavier hair than usual (not to mention that pregnancy glow). But it wasn't all about hair. Isla Fisher totally stole the show at The Great Gatsby world premiere, thanks to her bright red lips and cats-eye liner — see that look and more when you click through!
Last week, the celebrities taught a lesson in eye-brightening makeup techniques. Michelle Trachtenberg, Selita Ebanks, and Vanessa Hudgens were all spotted with illuminating shadow shades that can work on all skin tones.
Fair Skin: If you have a fair complexion, a white eyeliner like Shu Uemura's Eye Light Pencil White ($25) is a must have for your eye makeup kit. At Madonna's Fashion Evolution Pop-Up Exhibit, Michelle wore a shimmering shade on the bottom corners of her eyes, which was blended with royal blue liner underneath. Also, try applying the liner in the lower waterline to get a doe-eyed effect.
Medium Skin: For medium skin tones, take a note from Vanessa Hudgens's makeup look also from Madonna's Fashion Evolution Pop-Up Exhibit. She wore a pearlescent shadow like L'Oréal Infallible Eyeshadow in Endless Pearl on the inner corners of her eye and underneath. The iridescent shadow balances the inky black of her eyeliner and offers a brightening effect.
Dark Skin: At the Nylon cover celebration Selita Ebanks proved that dark lipstick can (and should) be worn in the Spring, but to counter the deep hue, she wore a shimmering taupe shadow like Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe ($11.95) from her lash line to her brows. It's the ideal colour to draw light to the eyes on darker complexions.
