We saw more than one stand-out beauty look at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night, but new bride Jodi Gordon looked particularly amazing in aqua. We'll be dreaming about her beachy waves for weeks to come, but it was her deep bronze tan against the crisp blue of her frock that really brought her look together. We love pairing out favourite aqua and turquoise nail polish with self tan — it's a dream combo and you'll get comments, lots of them.
Kristen Stewart is currently doing the publicity rounds for Breaking Dawn Part 2 and last night, she stepped out onto The Tonight Show stage in Peter Pilotto Resort '13. The dress is an interesting mix of black, white, yellow, orange and mint green — and the bold stripes actually remind us of the Balenciaga Florabotanica perfume bottle, for which she is the face! You know we like to take patterns and trends and apply them to our nails, and today, beauties, is no exception. Ready?
Where would we be without concealer? We use it to hide angry blemishes, dark circles under our eyes, pigmentation, and sometimes — when we're feeling really daring — as a matte, nude-look lipstick. The little pots imperfection-hiding goodness can be costly, though, so we thought it was high time some love went the budget concealer stars. We've tried and loved all of these, and we know you will too.
When it comes to eyeliner, formulation is key. Since it's always good to have options when using eyeliner, especially for more dramatic looks, you might want to have multiple varieties on hand. To see which liners work for specific looks you desire, from pencil to liquid, just keep reading.
When used right, illuminator is a very powerful makeup product. You know those bright-looking glowy people? They (probably) use illuminator. You can apply this face-saving liquid on its own before your finishing powder — as a second last step — or you can mix it with your foundation. Either way, it will change your life and your complexion. When applying alone, take half a pea size on your ring finger tip and dab along the top of your cheekbone, and up around the eye and below the brow. Easy! Just remember, illuminator is not highlighter (technically), because most products labelled as an illuminator will have a pearlescent element to them. Want to see our top five liquid illuminator picks on every budget? Ready... set... wait for it... go!
We pick up so many tips and tricks backstage at fashion shows, so this week was particularly educational because we had both the David Jones and Myer Spring Summer fashion launches. Both shows proved the power of a simple, bold lip, and channelled all things warm with radiant skin and powerful hair.

Time to click, see you at the other end with change from a 20.
