Hitchcock, the film that takes a look at the goings-on of Alfred Hitchcock and his inner circle during the filming of 1960's Psycho, recently came out on DVD. What happened behind the scenes of a movie that actually looks at life behind the scenes of a movie, however, is quite remarkable. Nominated for an Oscar in best makeup and hairstyling, the special effects makeup team of Howard Berger and Peter Montagna (nominated alongside hairstylist Martin Samuel), transformed legendary actor Anthony Hopkins into iconic film director Alfred Hitchcock.
Doing so didn't come without its challenges. "You have an actor like Anthony Hopkins, and you're faced with the task of taking one of the best-known actors in the world and transforming him into a perfect portrait of one of the greatest directors ever known," Berger explained. See what else he and Montagna had to say about the entire Hopkins-to-Hitchcock metamorphisis when you click through.
Usually wearing more than one beauty trend at a time can cause a clash, but Emmy Rossum proved that the key is choosing the right combination. She matched emerald smoky eyes and nude lips with an easy braid and white nails at last night's The 20/20 Experience album release party.
By incorporating Pantone's color of the year, Emmy's green shadow is spot-on for Spring. To re-create the look, apply Make Up For Ever Kohl Pencil in Intense Green ($17) in the lower waterline and on the upper lids. Then top with a golden shadow in the inner corners and on the center of lids. Emmy balanced the bold shadow with a glossy nude lip — yet another trend for Spring. Her effortless french braid is similar to styles seen on the Honor and Marchesa Spring 2013 catwalks. Finally, for nails, swipe on a few coats of China Glaze in Coconut Kiss ($7) for a bold white manicure that has been spotted as a celebrity favorite. Which trends will you be mixing and matching in the coming months?
At the premiere of Game of Thrones last night, Emilia Clarke, who plays the silver-haired Daenerys Targaryen on the series, was a vision in blue. Her standout eye makeup was what really stole the show. "Emilia's dress had royal-blue tones, so we didn't want it to contrast too much with her makeup," makeup artist Dawn Broussard said. "We wanted timeless glamour with a hint of something excitable." Emilia's smoky eye and glossy lips are the perfect pairing for an evening out.
To mimic the look, start freshly polished skin; Broussard used Bioré's Acne Clearing Scrub ($7) for a smooth canvas. Next, smudge a black liner on the upper and lower lash lines, followed by some silver and stone-gray shadow to create the smoky eye. Apply black mascara to the upper line for drama, but use a brown mascara on your lower lashes to keep things neat. Sweep bronzer onto the cheek bones and nose and blend with a soft baby-pink blush. For your lips, grab a shade a few hues darker than your natural lip tone and dab it on with your finger to create a stain. Glamorous makeup is only a few products away.

The Skin Cancer Foundation has officially deemed UV nail lamps as low in cancer risk but not altogether safe. "The risk, according to anecdotal research, is greatest for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), the second-most common skin cancer. SCC is mainly caused by chronic UV exposure and is very common on the hands and around the fingernails," the foundation recently stated on its website.
The lesson? Use a sunscreen to protect yourself prior to a gel manicure that uses UV light as a curing agent. But there is another alternative: fast-acting LED lamps, which do not carry the same skin-cancer risk. Review our roundup of the some of the top kits available that will help you achieve a long-lasting manicure without the hazard warning.
