Lorde has recently solidified her spot in the world of beauty with her signature vampy lipstick, but Rooney Mara reminded us that she's always had a soft spot for this moody hue. Rooney stepped out last night sporting a shade that looked like it was plucked straight out of Lorde's makeup bag. The shade was a dark, shiny berry, which looked diffused around the edges, like a stain. To keep the focus on her look-at-me lips, Rooney's eyes were kept bare, save for a thin swipe of liner and a few coats of mascara. Lorde typically likes to keep things simple save a sexy cat eye when it comes to pairing eye makeup with her signature lipstick, which is why the two looks are so similar. But has Rooney effectively dethroned Lorde as the queen of vampy lipstick? Or does Lorde still reign supreme?
The Golden Globe nominations have been announced, which means we're getting excited for the bevy of amazing red carpet looks that'll be happening a month from today! We've already been hearing award season buzz for 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, and American Hustle, but the television side is just as exciting, too! Five words: Orange Is the New Black. And other not-so-surprising nominations include Girls, Downton Abbey, and Scandal. Now that all the nominations are in, we want to know, which leading ladies are you most eager to see gracing January's red carpet?
You may not be familiar with the name Lupita Nyong'o, but you should be. Not only is she one of the stars of 12 Years a Slave, which is already generating a whole lot of Oscar buzz, but she's also on the verge of completely blowing up the beauty world, and for good reason. Lupita is clutch at pairing bright, bold colors with her makeup on the red carpet . . . a talent not many women have. But when you're brave enough to rock a shaved head, bright hues are just a stroll in the park. Ahead, we have 22 red carpet reasons why Lupita should be on your radar.
Party hopping? No matter how amazing you look when you walk out the door (and you definitely do!), sometimes things happen. But keeping a mini emergency kit can help you avoid serious mishaps. Grab a cute pouch, and stuff it with some of these must-have items:
- Mini deodorant: Getting asked if you're dating anyone over and over again at dinner can really make you sweat, so keep a deodorant on hand for when you need a little extra protection.
- Pain reliever: That red wine that you're swilling in order to get through dinner can make your head spin, but an emergency stash of aspirin can help you get back on your feet.
- Hand lotion: Cracked, dry hands are the worst party accessory. Keeping some lotion in your emergency kit will make sure your fingers stay smooth.
- Travel perfume: Sephora gives out free samples of all its fragrances. Just ask a sales associate for a sample, and you can stash one in your bag for when you need a little lift.
- Travel toothbrush and toothpaste: With all the eating that goes down on the holidays, keeping a toothbrush and toothpaste in your emergency kit is a necessity.
- Makeup stain: A stain like Stila Lip and Cheek Stain ($24) can be used in a bunch of ways, making it the perfect makeup-in-a-pinch product.
- Detergent pen: Spill something on your party dress? Kiss that stain goodbye with that handy detergent pen you have hiding in your purse.
A simple way to deck out your nails for the holidays is with a quintessential Christmas element: candy canes! You don't need a steady hand to pull off this striped look. All you need are red and white nail polishes and a roll of tape. Just keep reading for a step-by-step tutorial.
'Tis the season for holiday shopping, Champagne toasting, family visiting, and plenty of festive beauty moments, too. Whether it's finding the right amount of sparkle, revealing a glowing complexion, or just mastering a braided updo, we're sharing our editor-approved picks to get you through the rest of 2013 in style.
Do you know how hard it is for a redhead to find a good eyebrow pencil? Brown colors are too dark, blond colors are too light, and those two shades seem to be the only ones available. I recently went on a mission to Sephora to find a pencil that would fit my warm shade of red. After talking with two sales associates, I was directed to Laura Mercier's Eyebrow Pencil in Auburn ($22). It is literally the only red-tinted pencil in the entire store, and it has transformed my eyebrows in a magnificent way. The shade isn't too bright; it's just right. The other end of the stick is a much-needed brow comb to tame those stray hairs. Mission: Color Yourself accomplished.

Not only is Olivia Wilde a totally hot A-lister in Hollywood, but she also has the easy-breezy personality to match. Sigh. When we met up with her this morning at the Soho Trump Hotel in NYC, she was poised and relaxed (and sporting the cutest baby bump) while she answered all our burning beauty questions about antiaging, wearing eyeliner like a pro, and being a MILF (seriously). The fiancée of Jason Sudeikis was there to help promote Revlon's newest Age Defying collection, which includes a foundation, concealer, wrinkle filler, and CC cream, all be available in January at drugstores and Revlon.com.
Between laughing about Olivia's biggest beauty blunder (she once smeared lipstick all over her face during a premiere) and picking her brain about switching to eco products during pregnancy, we learned that Olivia really is one cool chick. Read on to see for yourself!
