For Spring 2014 in Milan, Versace sent models down the catwalk with a tough-girl edge. Would you expect anything less? The makeup was mostly neutral, but the eyes were rimmed with black kohl eyeliner and slightly smudged for a lived-in effect. The hair was the ultimate rolled-around-in, slept-on, teased-then-tousled, flyaways-are-welcome texture with middle parts. And to complement all the metallic fabrics in the collection, the nails had a high-shine finish.

Julie Bowen has been named as a Neutrogena spokesperson . . . again. That's right: the Modern Family star will be fronting campaigns for the skin care brand come 2014, but this isn't her first time she's linked up with Neutrogena. From 2001 to 2008, Julie appeared in both print and commercial ads for the brand. She revealed the news through her Twitter account writing, "Once n always #Neutrogena grl-I'm back as #NTGspokesperson #FBF more like #SplashBackFriday." Julie joins other celebrities, such as Jennifer Garner, Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, and Emma Roberts, who count themselves as ambassadors for the company. And now it's time for a flashback. Watch the video below see Julie tout the benefits of a Neutrogena antiwrinkle cream.

Tory Burch has joined the ranks of multifaceted fashion brands with the addition of fragrance, color cosmetics, and body care to her repertoire that just launched online today. The designer has thought long and hard about her beauty venture, putting a lot of her personal touches on the project. "I was going for tomboy meets feminine," Burch told WWD. "I wanted the vetiver because not only did my father wear it, I did, too, and so did my brothers." The perfume is a mix of zesty top notes like grapefruit and mandarin that melts down into a floral jasmine and tuberose. It finishes with her family favorite, vetiver, and sandalwood. In addition to a spritz, the scent also comes in solid form.
Typically, designers first get their feet wet with a fragrance then might move on to cosmetics (take Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors for example). But Tory is jumping in all at once. On Sept. 25, she will also release a sampling of cosmetics, including a neutral lipstick, a rosy lip and cheek duo, a bronzer/blush palette, and a retractable brush. "I wanted to do a capsule that was quick and easy," Burch said. "I don't have a lot of time to get ready in the morning, so we did a lip and cheek in one — that's how I often do it; I'll put lipstick on my cheeks [as blush] if I only want to bring one thing out with me." Burch will also launch a body cream, lotion, shower gel, and candle at that time (yes, she has been quite busy). Prices range from $32 for the lipstick to $150 for the solid perfume. The perfume and cosmetics are both wrapped in vintage-inspired packaging in Burch's signature orange and gold hues. You can order the perfume and preorder her makeup products now at toryburch.com.
