The goodness of olive oil has been documented in countless ways and using it to cleanse your face is just one of them. While there have been many versions over the years, DHC Deep Cleansing Oil ($28) is a standout. It's olive-oil-based, making it not only excellent at melting makeup away, but also perfect for delivering natural anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and omega-3 nutrients to your skin. Apply it directly to dry skin while your makeup is still on, massage over your complexion, and rinse away with warm water. You'll be surprised at how clean your skin will be — without that taut, dried-out feeling.

Pantone has announced its color for 2014, and the winner is Radiant Orchid. We think this is a fabulous choice for a bevy of reasons. We've already seen this hue in its multiple shades on the Spring 2014 runways of Costello Tagliapietra, Naeem Khan, and PPQ (above).
But aside from that, a bunch of celebrities have also been spotted sporting this look. AnnaSophia Robb (above, left) swept the shade across her lids, while color enthusiast Lupita Nyong'o (above, right) wore the exact shade on her lips. The best part, though? We definitely already own it . . . in multiples! The color is superwearable, be it on your nails, on your eyes, or across your lips, and looks good on a lot of different skin tones. But just in case you aren't already stocked, we've got you covered. Shop your new favorite products below!
Although our heads explode every time Kate Middleton's hair makes an appearance, she had a surprisingly different 'do at the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Kate actually swept her headline-making mane into a loose yet gorgeous ponytail. Instead of the sleek, slicked-back ponytails we tend to see on the red carpet, Kate's was elegantly loose and accented with a black velvet ribbon. Is this a sign that Kate is pushing the envelope with her red carpet styles? We're not sure, but it's definitely not stopping us from looking at her royal ponytail from all angles.
Whenever Jessica Biel makes an appearance, she never disappoints, and such was the case at last night's The Truth About Emanuel premiere in LA. With plenty of stars showing off holiday-appropriate looks lately — think berry lips and jewel-toned makeup palettes — Jessica's rosy look was like a breath of fresh air. While a petal-pink lip feels more Spring than Winter, her glowing makeup look clearly works with black and leather, too. She balanced her bright pink lipstick with a soft, silvery smoky eye. To finish off such a feminine look, her cheeks were given a soft flush of color and mascara for long, flirty lashes.
Getting this fresh-faced look is easy to copy. Dab on some BB cream for a glowing complexion, then opt for a cream blush to give your skin that lit-from-within glow. While the rosy pink lipstick is the focus of this look, don't forget to enhance your eyes with a sparkling gray smoky eye and lengthening mascara for fluttery lashes. Shop our picks below!
You've probably seen Deborah Lippmann's handiwork in the likes of Vogue or on the runways at New York Fashion Week, but she's most well-known for her line of polishes that you can find at many department stores and Sephora. We tapped the celebrity manicurist for her holiday shopping list, and just like her polishes — you'll find nothing but luxury here. From cozy cashmere blankets to a special spa treatment, see what Deborah is gifting this season.

From Beyoncé's fan incident to Miley's alien-esque bleached brows, we're recapping all the major beauty moments from 2013. Jennifer Lawrence shocked everyone with her pixie cut, while Jennifer Aniston combined her beauty knowledge with her business savvy by working with Aveeno and as co-owner of Living Proof. Marc Jacobs blew us away with his massive beauty line, a 33-year-old Justin Bieber fan received $100,000 in plastic surgery to look like his idol, and Miley, well, was just bein' Miley. Which moments were your favorite? See them all in our breakdown. On Kirbie: Contrarian jacket, Equipment blouse

They say that Hollywood is a fickle place, and that couldn't be more true when it comes to stars and their hairstyles. Whether they're chopping at their length, opting for fringe, or taking a spin in the colorist's chair, the leading ladies of Hollywood are always doing a quick hair change-up. Click through, and vote on what you think of these recent style changes!
There's more to Kelly Osbourne's topknot than initially meets the eye. The star pulled her hair up into a high bun for the Make-a-Wish Gala in Los Angeles last night and added a spiked hair accessory just above the nape of her neck. She kept her makeup pretty classic with winged eyeliner and nude lipstick, although we wouldn't go so far as to call her purple braid a classic. The shade is actually more like Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year, radiant orchid, making Kelly's signature hair hue ahead of the trend. See more shots of her tough-girl style from all angles!
