Glossy Girls Reign Supreme

Summer heat waves are a beachgoer’s best friend… and a beauty maven’s worst enemy. Runny mascara, streaky foundation, these are just a few of the warm weather disasters a girl can experience. Thankfully, however, our pals at refinery29 have compiled a list of the best glosses for these next few months. Not only are glossed lips the perfect visual complement to sticky summer days, but they also protect that delicate skin of yours from the sun’s harmful rays. Pucker up with a feminine nude hue for a sexy and subdued look or embrace coral, an all-time favorite seasonal shade. Featuring high-end makeup lines such as YSL and Givenchy, this list makes sure to cover all price points with glossy products from Target and your local drugstore, too. Don’t let the sun, surf, and sweat wipe you clean of your dolled-up face this year, gorgeous. Instead, check out refinery29’s list for some tips on keeping your kisser camera ready this summer.

Scarlet and Armor and Jewels, Oh My!

The biggest red carpet of the year came and went last night and it certainly wasn’t without its share of winners.  From bold color statements to armor-like appeal, the dresses were to die for… and then resurrect and die for again!

Proving that the red carpet can’t keep that hue all to itself, stars from Jennifer Hudson to Sandra Bullock took a cue from the very ground they walked on and wowed us in crimson shades.  The striking palettes didn’t stop there as Best Actress winner and soon-to-be-mama Natalie Portman stunned in an off-the-shoulder aubergine Rodarte gown.  Maybe there was something in that Black Swan water because costar Mila Kunis swept in on the same purple trend, opting for a lavender shade in her Elie Saab lace dress.  But don’t let these ethereal ladies fool you, there was plenty of toughness at this A-list event.  High collars, broad shoulders, structured bodices, and metallic fabrics define the armor trend taking over Hollywood and stars of all ages gave into its ferocity.  Cate Blanchett went high fashion with Givenchy Couture while winner Melissa Leo brought some femininity to the look with her Marc Bouwer laser-cut gown.

And what’s an outfit without the right accessories?  This year diamonds sat back seat to costume and color.  The ladies of last night dripped in bright baubles and gutsy designs, confirming that the only wallflowers around were stylishly placed upon their ears, necks, and wrists.
