Jason Wu for Lancome

It was no surprise back in February when news broke that designer Jason Wu would be collaborating with Lancôme on a cosmetics line–after all, the designer has never shied away from bright colours and distinct beauty looks at his runway shows. And while it’s been a long wait to see what the color genius would offer, the wait is over, now that the Nordstrom-exclusive cosmetics line has debuted (timed to coincide with New York Fashion Week).

The 15-piece collection offers classic, feminine colours and several nods to Wu’s favorite accent colour–blue–in fact, the collection’s sole mascara is navy blue–playing perfectly to both Wu’s aesthetic and the current trend of coloured mascara.

The entire collection is packaged in another Wu-signature hue–gray, and features the Jason Wu logo and the Lancôme rose.

And more good news? Although this collection is limited edition, Wu has already created a second collection set to debut some time in 2014.

You can shop the Jason Wu for Lancôme collection exclusively at Nordstrom.com.

Hair Trend Alert The Modern Beehive

A huge trend in the 60s, the beehive is a classic, albeit dated, updo.

But recently, several actresses (and their hairstylists!) have been experimenting with the classic look and updating it in various ways.

‘Scandal’ actress Darby Stanchfield made her ‘hive modern by finishing it into a low ponytail.

Minka Kelly interpreted the look by only pulling up half her hair, and leaving the rest down in gorgeous, loose waves.

Rachel McAdams kept her beehive the most authentic–a complete updo–but still kept things fresh by keeping some pieces around her face loose.

Lily Collins (and hairstylist Mara Roszak) perhaps got the most creative, by extending the volume that’s synonymous with the beehive look down the back of the head, finally tucking the length of the hair under, at the nape of the neck. The black headband breaking up the height at the crown also adds interest.

Of course the key to any kind of beehive style is volume, volume, volume, and the best way to get that is teasing. Use Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Teasing Dust to add the gritty, voluminous texture you want, and also protect the hair. Then use a teasing brush like the 100% Boar Bristle Brush from Wigo to backcomb your hair into your big, beautiful hive.
