At last night's screening of her latest film, Trishna, actress Freida Pinto dazzled with simple yet elegant makeup. Keeping things natural, she paired her long, wavy hair with a neutral eye palette and pale pink cheeks. But what really stood out was her wine-colored lipstick. This color is a good call for most women because it pairs well with a variety of skin tones. In Freida's case, the color made a chic statement without being overly extravagant. Want to get the look? Try Lancôme Rouge In Love in Fiery Attitude ($25) for a glossy shine like Freida's or Revlon Wine Not ($8) for a more matte finish.
While the lineup won't be in stores until Spring 2013, MAC will be promoting Archie's Girls at its San Diego Gaslamp store in conjunction with the kickoff of Comic-Con. If you happen to be in San Diego tomorrow or Thursday, you can get a Betty- or Veronica-inspired makeup look — and even a caricature of yourself by illustrator Dan Parent. Whether you're a girl next door à la Betty or you're more of a spark plug like Veronica, when comics and cosmetics link up, it's never a bad thing.

What has your makeup done for you lately? That's the question Tarte is asking with its new QVC-only kit. Inside this pretty box, you'll find six beauty staples. They usually go for $160, but this collection is $49. We're loving the Maracuja Miracle 12-Hour Foundation. One of five shades, from fair to deep, go on smoothly, providing excellent coverage without smothering skin. An accompanying bamboo brush is included for soft and easy application, too. A Lipsurgence lip crayon (a bubblegum pink) and an eyeshadow/liner duo (a plum/brown color) look young and trendy when paired but chic and natural on their own. If the whole kit and caboodle sounds like a deal to you, then move like lightning, because the kit is available only on July 13. A portion of the proceeds will go to Sustainable Amazon Partnership, which helps build schools for indigenous children of the Amazon. That's just one reason that, unlike other so-called "deals," Tarte's box won't leave a sour taste in your mouth.
This season we've seen an abundance of rich, highly pigmented nails, such as blue-as-the-sea polishes and taxicab-yellow lacquers. And while these bold and bright shades may be in high demand, classic red is still holding its own, especially when worn with its natural pairing, red lipstick. So when it comes to red on red, let's take a look at some different ways to wear it, from demure to cool and everything in between.
The quote "beauty is pain" must refer to bikini waxing, because there are few things more stressful than going in to take it all (or most of it) off. But waxing down there doesn't have to be a pain in the you-know-what. With these simple reminders, you can alleviate uncomfortable feelings you may have with hair removal of the waxing kind.
Summer is the perfect time to experiment with fun colors, especially when it comes to lipstick. If you want to master the art of bright lip color, then there are two key things you need to keep in mind: undertones and balance.
Knowing which colors are right for your skin tone is the first element to consider. You want to stick with undertones that best complement your skin: If you have a cooler skin tone, then try working with berry shades and bright pinks, but avoid oranges. If you have a warmer skin tone, then it's the opposite; you should totally play with oranges, but probably avoid the super hot fuchsia pinks.
This is the most important part of the process. Once you've established that, finding great colors is a lot easier and you're free to experiment a little more. Get the second bright lip color rule when you keep reading.
