Whether you are new to makeup or totally obsessed, here are five easy tips that will help you look like a celebrity. Rihanna, Adriana Lima, Khloé Kardashian and many other stars are sporting bold lips this season as if it’s their best accessory.
As if a Saturday Night Live hosting gig isn’t enough for one lifetime, Girls star Lena Dunham got cozy with the Obamas over the weekend. Dunham’s boyfriend, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, shared a photo of the fearless foursome on Instagram, making us wonder whether they each revealed their thoughts on Ukraine, or just jumped into a debate about Taylor Swift vs. Beyoncé.
The Oscars are over and Paris Fashion Week is wrapping up, which means we can finally stop pretending the ridiculous contraptions worn by some the world’s biggest stars are soon to be “on trend.” Rihanna has been in the City of Lights all week, hanging out with Oscar winners and breaking out dozens of outfits that would make a marathon runner stop in his or her tracks. Her short hair looks great, the bold lip is on point, but she’s still had some missteps.
Lupita Nyong’o‘s Cinderella story culminated with a win for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars on Sunday night, and now she’s just reaping the benefits of being one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. We may be biased, but a golden statue is nothing compared to selfies with a certain Barbadian superstar, right?
If you live in the USA, you now know what a polar vortex feels like. Congratulations. For those of you who might not have experienced the freezing temperatures and blizzards, there’s no other way to describe it other than “very sucky.” Unfortunately for most, we’re kind of stuck with it, lacking the requisite bank balance and time off work to escape to warmer climates. Not true for celebrities, though. Those cashed-up beauties are jet setting all over the place to avoid the cold and flaunting it on their social media accounts, leaving the rest of us soothingly jealous.
Ahhh, February…It’s the shortest month of the year, but we sure cram a lot in. Assorted awards shows, the Super Bowl, a long holiday weekend, tons of snow storms and, of course, Valentine’s Day. It’s a month of love, and that’s why we’re pretty sure you’ll fall in love with this bumper crop of super hot celebrity social media snaps from the last 28 days! Rihanna, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Nicki Ninaj…they’re hot, there here, and spring is around the corner. What more could you want out of life?
Ever since Lorde hit the Grammy’s wearing dark, vampire-esque lips, celebs everywhere have been popping up with heavy plum lipstick. This goth-lite trend is perfect timing, since it goes fabulously with midwinter pale skin (very Wynona Rider in Beetlejuice). Of course, some celebs look more Manson than others. Kylie Jenner and Rihanna manage to look uber-intense in the look, while Selena Gomez and Katy Perry seem to be playing dress up with their depressed girlfriend’s gloss.
Either way, we’re so into it. The best part? There are a ton of shades on shelves that flatter all skin tones. If you’re fair to medium, try a neutral plum like Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Goldpearl Plum. Darker tones look fabulous in a deeper eggplant, like Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Black Plum. In the meantime, crack open The Bell Jar, cue up your Morissey playlist, and check out the ten best “bleak chic” lips of the moment!
Belly chains are weird. In theory, they’re stupid and superfluous, a bit of jewelry around a part of the body that doesn’t normally have a necklace-type chain wrapped around it. In practice, they’re pretty stupid too — unless you’re a gorgeous celebrity with a sexy body, of course. Mere mortals should avoid the belly chain at all costs, but for those who are endowed with perfect curves — our girl Rihanna, for instance — the belly chain is their best friend.
Speaking of Rihanna, her gratuitous use of the belly chain and copious Instagram beach selfless have really piqued our interest in the belly chain. While we mostly associate the belly chain with the early 2000′s, body jewelry is having a renaissance among the celebrity set, with everyone from Beyonce to Kendall Jenner flaunting their perfect abdominals with gold chains. Take a look at this collection of the best belly chains from the past and now.
As the poet once said, love makes us do foolish things. And as another (very different) poet once said, love stinks. When you put those two universal truths together, accidents can happen…such as permanently marking you body with the name of your romantic partner. Sure, it’s an undeniably sweet gesture (and there are definitely worse tattoos you could get), but what happens if things go south with your one-and-only? What if one day down the road your sweetheart decides to play hackey-sack with your heart and kick your butt to the curb? This could lead to problems. Just ask these unfortunate celebs!
If you ever believed that you and your friends could lift the weight of a human body with only a combination of your index and middle fingers, some candles and heavy chanting, then you were probably a big fan of The Craft in the ’90s. That being the case, you definitely remember saving up for deep purple lipstick like Nancy wore in the movie. Yes, The Craft and the popularization of witch culture (eventually bleeding into fashion), saw many a pubescent girl with smudged purple lips that most likely looked more bruised than broodingly occult.
It’s been a while since Nancy and the girls did their magic, but once the spell was cast, there was no turning back. Now, witch inspired lipstick has been the calling card of many a movie star, pop singer and fashionista. Most recently, we saw Lorde clean up at the Grammys while wearing a rich shade of deep plum lipstick, and rocking a decidedly witchy vibe in her monochrome outfits and long black hair.
In celebration of our favorite witches, Lorde’s iconic Grammys wins, and the fact that we just can’t get enough plum shades on our lips, we’re taking a look at some of the best witch inspired lips of the past few years. These are some babes who know how to exfoliate.
