We don't know about you, but when we're shopping for a new lipstick, we're always drawn to the brights. Bold, matte orange? Oh yes please. Hot glossy pink? Get on our lips! But after seeing the very charming SK-II spokesperson and actress, Kate Bosworth, on the cover of Harper's Bazaar earlier this week, we couldn't help but notice her very plain but very sexy pink-nude lip. Different from a normal beige-nude, a pink-nude should match (and accentuate) your natural lip colour. We did some investigating to find out the exact lipstick brand and shade name Kate is wearing on the January cover of Harper's Bazaar, and also threw in another four options to get you in the mood for pink-nude. Lesson learned: Mute lips are sexy. Thanks Bozzie!

I'm literally bursting at the seams to tell you what beauty products and pretty things I think you should add to your Christmas wish list.

Ready to find out my Christmas wish list must-haves?
Model-turned-snapper-turned-blogger, Zanita Morgan, is quite possibly one of the coolest girls we know. Just take her blog intro, for example. It reads: "I divide my time between snapping outfits and testing models, travelling overseas and collaborating with fellow bloggers to create personalised editorials. My blog is the story of my progression as a self-taught photographer." Um, can we please have her life?! Naturally, we wanted to know exactly how she keeps her skin so clear and what prods she likes to use daily, click through to find out.

Sydney's beauty media has been in a bit of a stir this week, following the arrival of the beautiful Kate Bosworth. Here on the back her announcement as SK-II's newest ambassador — she joins Australia's screen darling, Cate Blanchett. I attended a dinner in Kate's honour last night, and then settled in for a chat with the pretty blonde first thing this morning. We had our interview filmed — so stay tuned for our lovely edit — but in the mean time, read the full interview and find out what she had to say about her skincare routine, favourite lip products and how she styles that famously tousled hair.

When one of our all-time style and beauty faves comes to town, you know we're going to be closely documenting every pretty step she takes. And when Kate Bosworth stepped out in glittering Stella McCartney at David Jones in Sydney last night, we couldn't have been more impressed with her subtle and sexy hair and makeup. Here to promote SK-II, Kate, who was recently made the new face of the high-end brand, stepped out on a chilly Sydney night looking like she was fresh off a tropical island — all glowing skin, sexy, tousled hair and a pop of punchy pink-coral on her lips — courtesy of makeup artist Liz Kelsh and hair stylist Renya Xydis.

From the dress to the updo, our fashion + beauty maths will be only formula you need memorise. Ready?
Kate Bosworth has today been announced as a new ambassador for miracle skincare brand, SK-II. The actress joins Cate Blanchett as one of the several ambassadors the brand has across the world, and she'll be visiting Australia next month to show her support. Parinda Hasdarngkul, general manager of Global SK-II says, "Kate Bosworth epitomises the classic beauty that SK-II represents and we welcome her to our expanding family of ambassadors around the world."
SK-II's "miracle" ingredient is Pitera — a nutrient-rich liquid discovered after scientists noticed the youthful hands of women working in a Japanese sake brewery.
