The hardest part of your holiday shopping might just be for the men on your list, whether it's a brother, friend, husband, father, or boyfriend. While you could get him the latest video game release, opt for one of these grooming gifts instead to introduce him to a whole new side of life. Here are 10 gift ideas that he'll adore, just like you.
Kat Graham is gracing the cover of the latest Mark Cosmetics magalog as one of its "Mark 10 to Watch" series. We've already had our eyes on Kat's experimental red carpet beauty looks, from superhigh ponytails to blackout eye makeup. And for the cover, she went with a bright blue eyeliner. "I live for a fierce cat eye, so liquid liner is my absolute must-have," Kat explains. "The metallic shades offer a cool new way for me to get my favorite look." And the eye makeup from the shoot is easy to re-create at home.
Makeup artist Jamie Greenberg prepped the lid with a layer of I-Mark Metallic Eye Shadow in Truffle ($7). Then, she applied a layer of Earn Your Metal Liquid Liner in Electric Blue ($8) on the upper lash line, while putting the more subtle Copper Flash shade below the eye to balance the look. To set off the colors, Greenberg used an ultrablack mascara.
We're used to seeing Taylor Swift in red lipstick, but last night at The Weinstein Company's holiday party, the singer opted for a vampier version of the shade. When Taylor wears her signature lip color, it's usually a bright cherry red. But to complement her burgundy dress, she chose a darker brick shade instead. She completed the look with light eye shadow and liner, and she styled her hair in soft waves. The whole color palette is very fitting for a Thanksgiving gathering, but what do you think of Taylor's darker look?
So, Beyoncé changed her hair . . . again. This time it wasn't the cut but the color that had us gawking. She was spotted with husband Jay Z at the LA Clippers game in Oklahoma City last night with peroxide-blond curls. And you can also see her newly dyed mane in the photo snapped above with one of her fans, who shared the moment on Instagram. She balanced her blinding bright hair color with a vampy wine lipstick. If you haven't been following along, Beyoncé has taken us on a roller coaster of hair emotion this year. First with her pixie cut, then with the bob, and now this. We don't know if Beyoncé will have this same hairstyle next month, so you better vote quick! And check out more shots of Beyoncé's new look here.

She's turns 29 today, so we're rounding up her top hair and makeup choices as evidence of her seductive style. Click through and celebrate Scarlett's birthday!
