Trends may come and go, but real classic beauty will never fade — and that's why we'll never, ever tire of seeing creamy nude lips on the mouths of our favourite celebrities. The thing about "nude" is that the colour actually encompasses hundreds of different shades. Just like everyone in the world has slightly different skin colours, we all also present a slightly different colour when we leave our lips bare or coat them with a matching lipstick. Jessica Alba, for example — her nude is a light berry shade, while Diane Kruger's natural colour is a pale and creamy shade. Miranda Kerr has a hint of pale pink to her lips, while Jennifer Hawkins has the lightest berry undertone. Whichever look you're going for, you can take inspiration from the celebrities in this gallery. Sure, they like their bright pinks and oranges, too — but paring things back never looked so good.
Nicole Trunfio is easily one of our hottest modelling exports, and it's little wonder why. Her dark hair, olive skin and hazel-brown eyes work in conjunction with her stunning facial structure, to give a sexy, tough-girl look that never fails to wow us. This month, though, Russh magazine wanted to see a different Nicole — a softened version. "For our latest beauty story," Russh tells POPSUGAR Australia, "we wanted to capture a softer, more mysterious side of Nicole Trunfio. Working to enhance her natural beauty and raw sensuality, our team created looks with soft hair and dark eyes. It was a pleasure working with such an experienced model with the personality to match."
The magazine had the concept and photographer James Nelson had the skills to capture it — but it was Nicole who lent her air of grace and effortless beauty to make the shoot what it was. Click through to see all of the stunning images of Nicole in the December/January issue of Russh, out now with Catherine McNeil on the cover.
With numerous shoots and secret projects on celebrity agendas, we were transported into the heady world of fashion and beauty through some very cool behind-the-scenes shots. Miranda Kerr revealed a new project (and shared a snap from the set), Jesinta Campbell let us in on a fun-looking shoot with Who magazine, and Jessica Hart gave us a taste of what life is like in the makeup chair. Two Victoria's Secret Angels worked out together, one British It Girl showed off her very fabulous friends (including Sienna Miller), and Jessica Gomes let us have a good look at her stunning manicure. . . But that's not even half of it! Click through now to check out the week's best Instagram pictures.
It's one night when our favourite celebrities can let their hair down and add a little edge to their look, but the 2013 ARIA Awards turned out to be all about sleek sophistication. Jessica Gomes hit the black carpet in a slick Dion Lee dress that matched her sleek hair and classic makeup, while Alicia Keys had her hair styled up in what might be the classiest all-over quiff we've ever seen. Even Lorde, who's famous for her incredible curly hair, opted for a pared-back look, slicking her locks right down and sealing the deal with some darkly-painted lips. And Jessica Mauboy? She made a strong case for low-slung ponytails that have just the right amount of casual-cool to them. Click through now to see the most beautiful looks from the 2013 ARIA Awards!
It's Britney Spears' 32nd birthday today! It's so hard to believe that the Princess of Pop is all grown up and in her 30s — can you believe that "...Baby One More Time" was released 15 years ago? Through the ups and downs, good times and bad, we've always been fans of this all-American beauty. To celebrate her birthday, we're taking a retrospective squiz at Miss Spears' changing hair and makeup looks over the past 14 years. We've got everything from some of her first pics, in 1999, to that Rolling Stone cover, those double denim days with JT (sorry Brit, we couldn't resist) to her brunette days, right up until a few weeks ago. Click through to see all the incredible pictures, and happy birthday Britney!
As much as everyone loves red lipstick, they say a change is as good as a holiday. And when it comes to our makeup regimes, we’re totally ready for the Summer holidays — so why not get into the spirit faster with orange or pink lipstick? As these celebrities show, there’s no end to the shades you can try, and there’s no skin tone that the punchy, popping colours won’t suit. We’ve rounded up some of the best orange and pink lipsticks you can buy, now flick through and see how your favourite stars wear them. Summer’s a-comin’!
It's no surprise we look to celebrities for beauty inspiration — after all, with globally-watched events on every other day, a slew of makeup artists and hairstylists at their beck and call and, usually, the looks to pull any style off, they're in perfect position to show off the latest trends. And when it comes to hair, there's no look our favourite stars won't try. There are the ladies who love long bobs (Charlize Theron and Lara Bingle, we mean you), the long-haired lasses (hello, Sofia Vergara and Olivia Palermo), the brave pixie crop fans (Jennifer Lawrence is the latest) and more — but don't take our word for it, see for yourself! Click through, and you'll find the latest and greatest Summer-ready looks, brought to you by the likes of Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss and other beauty icons. Get clicking!
This time last year, the world was shocked because Hannah Montana had grown up and chopped her long, blonde locks off. Fast forward 365 days, and it's clear that we had no idea what we were in for when it came to one Miss Miley Cyrus.
It's impossible to deny that she's the biggest celebrity of the year, talked about across the globe for her music and performances, but also firmly planted on everyone's radar thanks to some stellar — and some crazy-in-a-good-way — hair and beauty choices. Ever-present are a set of bold red lips (her signature colour) and a cheeky smile or poked-out tongue, while her hair can be slick and sweet one day, spiked and wild the next, but usually somewhere in between.
As this talented lady turns 21 today, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to look back over her changing beauty looks — from the innocence of 2006, right through to the dark and dangerous look of last week at the Bambi Awards. Click through for a mind-blowing trip down memory lane!
Australia has loved Delta Goodrem since she burst onto the soap-and-music scene in 2002. Starring as Nina Tucker on Neighbours, we came to know her as the beautiful girl next door — fast forward a few years, and she's exactly the same, only with a lot more life experience and hair and makeup moments under her belt. Whether she's working a bare face and bright lips, long or short hair, eyeshadow, a delish tan or just oozing natural beauty, Delta can work any beauty look that's thrown at her. In honour of her 29th birthday today, we're taking a retrospective look at her best hair and beauty moments. The girl looks good all. the. time — see for yourself! And happy birthday, Delta.
If you're up to speed with all the happenings in Hollywood, you'll know that Jennifer Lawrence is a girl on fire — and she chopped all her hair off! Winning awards left, right and centre for her acting skills, the The Hunger Games star proves she's just as impressive off-screen as she is on when it comes to her hair and beauty adventures. Though she's been hitting red carpets since early 2008, it was her bombshell blonde waves and slinky red dress at the 2011 Oscars that really made us sit up and take notice. Since then, we've seen dark brown locks at the Silver Linings Playbook premiere in September last year, and then lighter, more natural tones at the Met Gala. In honour of her brave hair choices, we're looking back.
This year's Derby Day was always going to be one for the record books, with British supermodels Poppy Delevingne and Naomi Campbell both making their way down to Melbourne for the star-studded event. Even so, we were blown away by the killer hair and makeup we saw — from Jennifer Hawkins' voluminous wide-barrel waves and Lara Bingle's orange/red eyeshadow, to Poppy Delevingne's simple slick strands and peachy skin, we can't get enough of these stunning Derby Day looks. We've got all of them zoomed in and up close — get in here and check them out!
The X Factor Australia winner Dami Im may have stopped us in our tracks with her voice the first time we heard her on the stage, but little did we know we had a future beauty icon on our hands, too. When she first hit the stage, Dami was a shy and reserved woman who seemed to play it safe with hair and makeup. Fast forward a few weeks, and there's been a total transformation — from the blunt fringe and glossy locks to the incredible and unique eye makeup, we can't get enough of Dami. Keen to get a good look? Flick through our gallery of photos of this superstar in the making!
The entire month of October is dedicated to raising awareness of breast cancer, but today is Pink Ribbon Day — the Cancer Council's yearly fundraiser! There's many ways in which you can join the fight, but one of the easiest (and most enjoyable) ways? Shopping, of course! With a host of much-loved products being re-released in trademark pink for the cause, you'll get your beauty fix while you make a very decent donation, with a portion of the sale of each item in this gallery going straight to various charities under the breast cancer umbrella. Buying new beauty bits for a good cause? Say no more!
If you've ever been beauty shopping in the United States, you'll have noticed that there's one thing in particular that isn't readily available back home: rollerball perfume. Often the little sister version of big name fragrances, these teensy tiny glass tubes house divine scents that are easily popped into your handbag or clutch. Here in Australia, there hasn't been quite as much love for the rollerball — until now.
Spearheaded by organic perfumers and aromatherapists, rollberballs are back, and this time around they're multi-purpose. From soft fragrant oils that leave your skin supple, to aromatherapy essences that ease your mind at the end of the day, these are clever (and inexpensive) little bag buddies. And of course, some just smell pretty! Click through to shop our top 10 options, from the likes of Marc Jacobs, Kiehl's, Leila Lou and more. . .
It's no secret that we think Jennifer Lawrence is one of our time's hottest celebrities — girl knows how to work a red carpet beauty look — but she never looks more beautiful than when she's letting her natural beauty shine through. This fact hasn't been overlooked by Dior, which has released these images of the Oscar-winner absolutely nailing the barely-there makeup look. Somehow, even with the images in a lit-up black-and-white tone, Jennifer's flawless, dewy skin steals the show. Her high cheekbones look to be dotted in highlighter to emphasise them ('sif they needed it) and her hair sits upright in a messy, undone pompadour style. Shot by Mikael Jansson and appearing in the Autumn/Winter issue of Dior Magazine, we're not certain if these images will be used in an official campaign, but one thing's for sure: whatever Jennifer's selling, we want it.
There are some weeks when we'll spot a new celebrity picture and literally stop everything we're doing to pore over the details — that's how good they are. This was one of those weeks. First, we were silenced by Emmy Rossum's beauty look, and we can't decide whether it was her skin, brows, ponytail or those picture-perfect red lips that won us over the most. After Emmy came Erica Packer, who was back in the spotlight after a long hiatus. After checking out her picture, we think you'll agree the woman just does not age — she's looking more beautiful than ever, and we love what's going on around her eyes. There are eight other women who made our Top 10 this week, including Kate Middleton and Alexa Chung — click through now to check them all out!
When you think of glamour, chances are a set of red-painted lips come to mind. And why wouldn't they? They're as much of a staple as the little black dress, and beloved by just about every celebrity you can think of. These days, red lipstick is as popular on the red carpet as it is at cocktail parties and after-work drinks — and as these models, actresses and singers show, there's no end to the slightly different iterations out there. Whether it's red with a hint of raspberry (hello, Emmy Rossum at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards on Monday) or a strong pigment that leans toward orange (like on Amber Heard), it's bold, it's beautiful, it's womanly and it's unstoppable. Click through to see over 25 of our favourite celebs rocking red lipstick in its many forms!
With beauty more accessible than ever thanks to online shopping and havens like Mecca Maxima opening left right and centre, we're often knee-deep in makeup trends that go as quickly as they came. One thing that never changes? The tools we use in our day-to-day regimes. Often overlooked in a world of bright colours and fancy fragrances (roll-on perfume, anyone?), these pieces of equipment have been by our sides for years and we'll never stray. From nail buffers and disposable mascara wands, to mini hair straighteners and top-quality eyelash curlers, there's no rhyme or reason for the brands in this gallery — all we know is that these tools make our lives that little bit easier and deserve some love. Click through to check them out!
