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!
Even though Gravity has already debuted in the States, Sandra Bullock has been out promoting the film in Tokyo this week. For the press conference, she wore her hair straight down with a middle part framing her face. Then, she switched it up for the red carpet premiere, wearing an updo with curled fringe in the front. For both looks, she kept her makeup soft with metallic shadows on her lids and a nude lip. She looked great for both appearances, but which of Sandra's styles do you like best?

You don't have to put a ring on it to give your hands a little extra sparkle this holiday season. You can amp up your basic manicure with a rhinestone nail charm on your nails, and the gift-giving season is the perfect time to try on a bow accent. To keep things simple, I went with a basic pink polish using Essie Status Symbol ($8). After painting each finger, add a sparkling bow charm to just one finger. I found mine at Your Beauty Store, which has a huge selection of rhinestone nail charms. It's quite a simple look, but the dazzling element makes this manicure seem much more advanced, not to mention festive.
To dress up your nail sans the 3D action, paint a bow with nail polish instead. A dot in the middle followed by two triangular-shaped "wings" on each end will give you a sweet bow-tie look in seconds. And you can get sparkly with a glitter or metallic polish too!
As beauty editors, we are constantly trying out new products, but even we have our all-time favorites. Call these our holy grail buys, and surprisingly, they're not all splurges. The prices run the gamut from $2 to $200. Read on to discover the five classics that everyone talks about and that we adore, too.
- Crème de La Mer Moisturizing Cream ($155): Celebrities hoard it, estheticians recommend it, and our editors agree. This well-known cream is worth every penny because it sends wrinkles running and keeps skin, soft, smooth, and hydrated.
- Bonne Bell Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker ($2): When it comes to a neutral lipstick nothing does the job better than this classic Dr. Pepper lip balm. The hint of red is just right for that everyday flush.
- Essie Ballet Slippers ($8): Every once in a while, we sidestep the anxiety that comes with selecting a polish a the salon and just bring our go-to nude along. This Essie shade is just the right mix of pink and white to blend with any skin tone. Plus, the sheer coverage always makes it work appropriate.
- CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara ($9): While some are Maybelline Great Lash addicts, our editors are partial to this volumizing mascara because the plastic bristles keep clumps at bay, so all you see are fluttery lashes.
- Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser ($9): If it's good enough for grandma, then it's good enough for us. This cleansing cream is still a vanity must have because there is nothing better at removing stubborn eye makeup.
Your party dress is dry-cleaned, and your updo is figured out (thanks, YouTube). Up next is your smile. Allure has rounded up its favorite teeth-whitening and breath-freshening buys to put on your brightest smile this holiday season.
Nothing kills your confidence like having a piece of lettuce stuck between your teeth for an entire conversation and not knowing it until somebody points it out. Or when your mother oh-so-politely passes you a mint after you've eaten a slice of garlic bread. Or when a glass of red wine leaves your whole mouth rusty and stale. In this world of fresh-breath saboteurs and tooth decayers, here are three chic and discreet ways to freshen and brighten up. Go ahead, smile.
GoSmile Touch Up Ampoules ($35 for 30). These tiny single-shot tubes are no bigger than your pinky. When you're ready for a mini mouth makeover, simply bend the ampoule until the plastic casing cracks open to release whitening formula onto the foamlike tip. The results are impressive: Surface stains disappear and breath is fresher within seconds. Of the three flavors, we like Fresh Mint best.
Glo Everyday Glo ($25). Like a Tide to Go stick for your teeth, this stain-remover pen contains a clear gel with hydrogen peroxide and whitening silicates that help whiten teeth and break up stains before they settle into enamel. It has a flexible rubber tip that won't aggravate gums while you scrub, and the flavor has a hint of mint, so your mouth feels fresh. All that without smudging your lipstick!
Kissing Elixir ($10). It looks more like a lip gloss than a classic breath spray. This breath mist is 100 percent natural and formulated with peppermint leaf, vanilla, spearmint, cinnamon, and chorophyll. A single spritz is all you need, and the packaging is so elegant and unassuming, there's no need to excuse yourself from the table when it's time to refresh.

The perfect blowout is one of those things that can seem just oh so elusive. But the truth is that with the right products, you can achieve a salon-quality blowout at home . . . no joke. The Drybar VIP Pack ($25) lets you do just that. The kit contains the perfect trifecta of blowout products: Drybar's Southern Belle mousse, Money Maker hair spray, and Detox dry shampoo, which, when used together, can help you create (and maintain) the easiest at-home blowout ever. Use a small amount of the mousse on your wet hair before you dry with a round brush, and set your look with the hairspray. Then, as your blowout starts its downward slump, spritz on some of the dry shampoo to revive it. And did we mention the products are travel-sized? That means that even a trip home for the holidays will be full of blowout glory. Your mother will never complain about your hair again. Your boyfriend? You're on your own with that one.
