What happens when anime and beauty collide? We get a gorgeously girlie makeup palette, and that's exactly what the collaboration between Shu Uemura and Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has delivered. The Heart-Full Pink Parallel Eyes and Cheek Palette ($69) contains a smattering of pretty pink makeup hues. Seven iridescent and satin eye shadows dance around a cheek color, which are perfect for creating a delicate, feminine look. The kit also contains two dual-sided shadow brushes for ultimate flexibility in your makeup application. But what we love most about this palette is the adorable illustrations that decorate the front of the case, bringing us back to our Sunday mornings watching Sailor Moon with a bowl of Cheerios. Who doesn't love some nostalgia with their makeup?
The sexiest event on television is happening tonight, and we have one more reason for beauty-lovers to tune in (aside from enviously sighing over Behati Prinsloo's abs or Alessandra Ambrosio's beach waves). Herbal Essences is debuting its Naked Collection to coincide with the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and the clean new scent makes us want to strip down and hit the shower.
"The mint is the central theme across all three of the lines, but what's really interesting is how we've enveloped this in with the other notes," explains Stacy Hertenstein, the brand's fragrance sommelier. Her team blended three scents to go with the three different lines in the collection: Volume, Moisture, and Shine. So no matter your hair type, there's a way to reinvigorate your strands with one of these sexy new scents. The packaging has taken on a fresh, new look, as well. The shampoo features clear bottles with dye-free formulas, and the styling products are packaged in crisp, white containers. You don't have to wait until next year to get your hands on this major drugstore launch: just head over to the presale happening now on HerbalEssences.com.
It turns out that Jennifer Aniston — aka one of the biggest hairstyle icons of our day — has a few celebrity hair crushes of her own. In an interview with Parade magazine, she said, "I think Gisele [Bündchen] has exquisite hair. That's a pretty envious head of hair. I love Kate Moss. She always has great hair."
Perhaps Jennifer misses her long locks since she recently chopped off her length in favor of a chic bob. Jennifer, Gisele, and Kate all have some of the best hair in Hollywood, but we want you to fess up and tell us whose mane you love the most in the poll below!
When the blustery Winter weather hits, that's the time when soft, supple lips shrivel up into a chapped mess. While Vaseline will do the job well enough, these products are for lip balm enthusiasts. We're talking the crème de la crème of lip care. But the price isn't just in the packaging, you'll find the top ingredients to hydrate extremely dry lips in these picks from La Mer, Rodin, and more. We've already rounded up our favorite lip balms from the drugstore, but don't your lips deserve a little luxury this season?
There's a lot to love about Lorde. Besides having one of the top songs in the country right now (“Royals”), the 17-year-old crooner from New Zealand has been nominated for four Grammy awards including artist of the year and song of the year. While her music résumé is stellar, we're giving her top honors to her beauty look. Lorde's mass of kinky curls have been the subject of many discussions, but we're also keen on her gothic-rocker makeup look. The pale face, flick of eyeliner, and vampy lipstick combo has become her signature style. And it makes her doll-like features pop on stage when she's performing.
Though Lorde pulls off that nearly black lipstick with ease, many women fear wearing ultradark colors. But it's more wearable than you think — and is a great juxtaposition with a girlie party dress. You just need the right technique.
"The best way to wear black lipstick is with dewy skin, a flushed cheek, and a natural eye," said Lijha Stewart, pro educator for Make Up For Ever. "Try wearing a purple-based lip pencil underneath your lipstick as a base color." Stewart suggests Make Up For Ever's Aqua Lip in 13 Purple ($24), and we've got 10 more shades for you, below. Shop your favorites and make Lorde proud.
Turns out our favorite female celebrities aren't the only ones sporting extensions. Daniel Radcliffe appeared on the UK's Graham Norton Show with surprisingly long hair. "It's like you have to pull back a curtain to talk to me," he quipped, joking about his chin-length bob. When asked if it was his own hair, Daniel replied, "It's hair, I assume, from a dead person or someone who donated their hair." Daniel's new hair addition is for his latest role as Igor in Frankenstein, which stars James McAvoy in the titular role. Will he keep the hair after shooting is done? Only time will tell.
Lea Michele is a scene-stealer for many reasons: Her chills-inducing pipes, her role as the fearless Rachel Berry on Fox’s hit show Glee, and, of course (for us beauty fanatics), her gig as the face of L’Oréal Paris hair care. So it’s no surprise that the cover art for her first solo album, Louder (out March 4), shows the triple threat in a strong, of-the-moment beauty look. Hair pro Mark Townsend created her wet bed head (which we already know is a major trend for Spring 2014), and makeup master Melanie Inglessis gave her an ultrasmoky, smudgy eye.
Whether it's a colorful cat eye or a fairy-tale hair accessory, we can always count on Emmy Rossum to show us how a beauty girl does the red carpet. So we're not surprised to see that her porcelain complexion has helped her land a spokesmodel gig for luxury skin care brand Restorsea. And the beauty matchup has a less than typical story. "I was gifted some Restorsea products in a gift bag. I was amazed and I switched my whole skin care routine to Restorsea," she tells us. "I had my agent approach the brand about being an ambassador for them, because I organically loved the product so much." We caught up with the new face of Restorsea to learn her wealth of beauty secrets.1. Eye cream is a multiuse product. Her favorite product is the Revitalizing Eye Cream ($85). "I always make sure I put on eye cream," Emmy says. "I have it next to my bed and it doubles as cuticle cream or elbow moisturizer or lip balm or whatever. I even put it over makeup sometimes. If your under-eye [area] starts to get too dry from wearing makeup for so long and you start to get those crease lines, you can even freshen it up by putting a little bit of eye cream on and rework the makeup. It works really well."
2. Antiaging is about being preventative. "My thing is preventative and not so much about reversing the signs of aging. I'm all about spending on a day cream and an eye cream now, so that I don't have to do needles and cut my face open later," Emmy says. "If you make sure your collagen is in check in your 20s and 30s, then you'll never have to worry about sticking lots of needles in your forehead."
3. Don't pop your pimples. "Popping is a huge no-no," Emmy exclaims. "You can do serious damage to your face — if you don't get it all out you can get an infection. I remember I was shooting The Day After Tomorrow and it was my first studio movie, and I was very nervous. A couple days before my first day, I felt this pain between my eyebrows and I could tell I was getting one of those cystic pimples. As we got closer and closer to the first day of shooting it was getting worse. So the night before, I decided I was going to pop it and it will be fine. Of course, I couldn't pop it and squeezing it only made it bigger, so when I got there, Jake Gyllenhaal called me three-eyes."
