Bright Red Lips
Perk up a pale complexion with a ruby-red pout, as Emma Stone did at the Miu Miu fashion show in Paris on Oct. 3. Tip: Pick a matte formula that won’t budge all night!
Kristen Stewart, pictured here at the 4th Annual Governors Awards in Hollywood on Dec. 1, is an expert at looking broody and sultry. Follow her lead and swap out black and gunmetal gray for silver to create a smoky eye. The shimmer reflects light and makes eyes look brighter.
How can anyone say no to Lea Michele (pictured here at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles Rising Stars Gala in Beverly Hills on Oct. 26) when she bats her long, lush lashes? Go ahead and try on a pair of falsies yourself for a big night out. Heat up glue for 5 seconds under a lamp, then apply onto the lash line.
Sometimes, all you need to stand out is beautiful skin. Just ask Kerry Wasgington, Kerry Washington, who stunned at the 40th American Music Awards in L.A. on Nov. 18 with her flawless, dewy complexion. To get the look, shun heavy foundation. Instead, try Giorgio Armani’s Maestro Foundation, which is ultra-lightweight and imparts a fresh glow.
Going nude? On your lips, that is. Try one with a slight pinky-rose tint to prevent looking washed out while enhancing the natural pink in cheeks. Jessica Biel mastered the look at the Playing For Keeps premiere on Dec. 5 in NYC.
Amanda Seyfried opted for seriously dramatic cat eyes at the Les Miserables premiere in NYC on Dec. 10. To create the look yourself, just draw two lines from the upper and lower lids to a point just under the end of the brow and fill in with black shadow. Cat eyes are best paired with an updo.
Rose Byrne, at the Portlandia Season 3 premiere on Dec. 10 in NYC, proved that strong, natural-looking brows needn’t be scary-looking. To get the on-trend brows, simply pick a hue one shade darker than your natural coloring, then color over the natural arch. Anchor the bold brows with a neutral lip and metallic lids.
Hannah Simone‘s pretty, pink cheeks on Oct. 26 at the 92Y in NYC highlighted her gorgeous bone structure and gave her an uber-feminine and romantic look. Not as genetically lucky? Dust a rose gold on the apples of cheeks and contour underneath with bronzer for instantly defined cheekbones.
