Hailee Steinfeld’s Teen Choice Awards Starburst Nail Art

Hailee Steinfeld's Teen Choice Awards Starbust Nail Art

During Comic-Con, Hailee Steinfeld’s nail art managed to even upstage her all-eyes-on-you Kenzo dress, and she was at it again for the Teen Choice Awards.

At first glance it would appear that the nail art was merely replicating the colour and starburst print on her House of Holland dress, but there is more to it than first meets the eye: Hailee was sending out an important message.

The teen had seen an anti-bullying campaign in a magazine where young girls were asked to make a “pinky swear” promise to be kind by wearing blue polish on their pinky fingers, so that’s exactly what she did.

Chanel celebrity manicurist Ashlie Johnson created the look, starting off with two coats of Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Elixir before coating the actress’s pinkies with Chanel’s Le Vernis Nail Colour in Blue Satin.

The blue was also used to replicate the starburst pattern seen on her frock on the ring fingers, with a layer of Chanel’s Extreme Shine Nail Lacquer Top Coat and a sprinkle of glitter for added shine completing the look.

Diane Kruger for Chanel: Where Beauty Begins

Chanel Diane Kruger

Back in April it was announced that Diane Kruger was going to be the face for Chanel’s cosmetics campaign.

The success of the campaign can be seen here with images captured by Peter Lindbergh, seeing the German actress looking very elegant posing against a beach backdrop.

Chanel’s Resynchronizing Collection features the Le Jour de Chanel, La Nuit de Chanel and Le Weekend de Chanel creams, which are all made to re-energize the skin – and who would disagree when Diane looks so refreshed here?

Le Jour De Chanel Morning Reactivating Face Care promises to reactivate and strengthen skin using a combination of jasmine extract and salicylic acid. Your complexion will appear smooth and radiant, and ready to face the day.

La Nuit De Chanel Evening Recharging Face Care is designed to repair and recharge once the sun goes down. Frankincense extract from the resin of the Boswellia serrata tree soothes the skin, while hyaluronic acid provides a plumping effect. Your complexion will appear supple upon awakening, with no signs of dullness.

Le Weekend De Chanel Weekly Renewing Face Care enhances renewal and replenishes hydration to give skin a much-needed weekend break. Combined with relaxing rose water, a gentle glycolic acid complex is gradually released for ideal exfoliation and lasting moisture. Skin is softer and more luminous for the week ahead.

Get the Look: Lily Collins on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon - Season 5Lily Collins has proven herself to be a total style and beauty icon, and she continually stuns with those perfect brows. I also really love that she’s been wearing dark lipstick lately, when everyone else is playing it safe with nudes and bright summery shades.

For Lily’s appearance on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’, makeup artist Molly Stern gave her a modern, edgy look.

First, she moisturized her skin with Lancome Bienfait Aqua Vital Lotion.

Then, she sparingly applied Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation to Lily’s gorgeous, porcelain complexion.

For the cheeks, Molly used YSL Crème de Blush in Silky Praline and then dusted Lancome Blush Subtil in Nectar Riche over the top.

Molly based Lily’s eyes with Shu Uemura Creamy Eyeshadow Primer in Light Pink 101, and then went to work with the Lancome Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette. First she applied the pale pewter shade (far right, center) all over the lid, and then added a hint of pink with the rose shimmer shade (far left, center) on the inner lid.

Next, Molly applied the warm taupe (center) into the crease and under the lash line, and then for a final pop of brightness, she added Lancome Color Design Infinite 24H shadow in Unlimited Silver.

Then, she curled Lily’s lashes to open up the lash line and applied Lancome Show Mascara Hypnose Doll Lashes in So Black!.

Finally, Molly applied Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor in Coffee Date all over Lily’s lips, followed by a sheer application of Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor in En Vogue.

Oh, and those brows? They are all Lily. When you’re genetically blessed, you’re genetically blessed.

Beauty Trend Spotting: Orange Lips at the Young Hollywood Awards

Beauty Trend Spotting Orange Lips at the Young Hollywood Awards

With all the fashion and style last night at the Young Hollywood Awards, what really caught my eye was the total moment the colour orange was having. From peach to coral to bold tangerine–it was all about shades of orange for these young beauties.

A coral-orange-colored lip not only works for Spring and Summer, but it’s suitable for Fall, too. The trend was first noticed Moschino for Spring 2013 and then again for Fall at Oscar de la Renta.

AnnaSophia Robb complemented her summery look with a bold peachy hue. It can be recreated using Yves Saint Lauren Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in Peach Passion, followed by Dior Addict Gloss in Dèlice to give the colour a nice shine.

Anna Camp’s makeup artist Jennifer Streicher used Armani Lip Maestro in Tibetan Orange to make a striking contrast against Anna’s white and gold pantsuit, and the tangerine shade she chose is flattering on a wide range of skin tones.

Holland Roden kept her floral attire from reading to ‘sweet’ by wearing a sleek and simple ponytail and a bold, semi-matte coral. The result was the perfect edgy, au courant look for the young star. To get a similar shade, try NARS Semi-Matte Lipstick in Outsider.
