Selena Gomez opts for ombre look

Although Selena Gomez is still young and learning her way around Hollywood, she seems to know a bit about looking fashionable. Not only does she make wise choices when it comes to her makeup, but her hair as well.

Recently, Us Weekly magazine reported that Gomez dyed her hair a light shade of brown (quite different from her natural black) and opted for lighter color at the tips, capitalizing on the ever-so-popular ombre look. Many people who’ve seen Gomez on the streets say she’s barely recognizable with her new ‘do! This is one of the many changes that the actress and singer has exhibited since splitting from her equally famous ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

Ombre, which essentially involves dyeing the ends of your hair lighter than the rest, is a trend that continues to circulate around Hollywood. However, it may require you to apply bleach to your hair to achieve the color you desire if you have a naturally dark color like Gomez. Hollywood Life claims that if you’re unsure how to go about creating this look, it’s in your best interests to consult a professional. He or she can also recommend hair products to help you maintain your appearance.

Heather Graham shines in Europe with dramatic eye makeup

One woman who knows a thing or two about attending red carpet events is Heather Graham. The illustrious actress has been going to these events for years, and she recently showed up to the European premiere of “The Hangover III” to wow audiences once again with her beauty.

Graham wore a stunning black dress that showed off her curves as she posed for photographers. To complement the elegance of the ensemble, she rimmed her eyes with black eyeliner and an ample amount of dark mascara to give her peepers some drama. On her lips, she wore a subtle shade of magenta that was just enough to give her pout some eye-catching color.

If you want to recreate Graham’s appearance on your own face for an upcoming event, all you need is dark eye makeup to help you achieve your goal. Simply use a long-lasting, waterproof mascara to give your lashes some much-needed length. Then, use a black eyeliner around your eyes to top off the look. Redbook magazine encourages you to keep your chin up during the application process to make it easier and increase accuracy.

Khloe Kardashian Odom shows off pout in nude shade

When she isn’t promoting her clothing line or reality television show, Khloe Kardashian Odom is making red carpet appearances around the world. Recently, the celebrity was present at the launch of the Glam Louder Program and Bling It On! Contest for HPNOTIQ liqueur, and she couldn’t have looked more stunning.

The Kardashian sister showed off her curves in a little, tight-fitting dress composed of horizontal red and white stripes – very summer chic! On her face, she wore a nude lipstick and only a hint of pink blush on the apples of her cheeks. Around her peepers, she opted for black mascara and a bit of black eyeliner to give her eyes some intrigue.

Just because you don’t have your own reality television show doesn’t mean that you can’t look fabulous this season! One way to fall in line with trends of the summer is to wear a neutral lipstick on your lips. Bella Sugar recommends looking for one that has a glossy finish to ensure that your appearance doesn’t fall flat. Before you put it on, be sure to exfoliate your lips to remove dead skin and give yourself a clean surface.

Isla Fisher shows off pout with glossy pink lipstick

If you’ve already got your True makeup alongside you in time for summer, you might think that you don’t need to do any more preparation for the upcoming season. However, you can always expand your knowledge of cosmetics and application by seeing what Hollywood celebs are doing on the red carpet.

One woman who can give you inspiration is actress Isla Fisher, who recently wowed crowds when she made an appearance at the premiere of “Now You See Me” in New York City. The fiery redhead knew just which features to highlight on her face with her makeup, and she showed that spring is the perfect time to rock a pink, glossy lipstick. While she chose to go bold on her pout, she kept it simple around her eyes with a little bit of silver shimmery eyeshadow to make her peepers pop. With a hint of dark mascara on her lashes, Fisher was ready to turn heads!

If you want to wear pink lipstick without looking too bold, InStyle magazine recommends trying a matte appearance. Simply dab a small amount of translucent powder onto your pout to finish off your look.

3 trends you need to take advantage of this summer

With an abundance of summer makeup trends to choose from, you might be asking yourself which ones are worth taking into account.

Elle magazine claims that bronzer goes hand in hand with summer, so don't neglect it! It's the perfect cosmetic for those who want to add some color to their skin without baking under the sun.

2. Go dewy
You don't want your skin to look oily this summer, but Refinery 29 claims that achieving a dewy complexion is necessary for appearing fresh and ready to take on the day.

Is Ke$ha finally growing up with her makeup choices?

It's no secret that Ke$ha can't get enough of the party life now that she's a famous singer, but the pop star seems to be growing up right in front of the world's eyes! Recently, Ke$ha showed up to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards wearing something refreshing – a little black dress. Her hair was tied back, sleek and casual – definitely different from what the pop star usually chooses to do with her tresses!

It's also worth noting that Ke$ha toned down her makeup for once. Instead of wearing flashy eyeshadow and more than enough eyeliner, she chose to play it simple with a small amount of black liquid eyeliner around her peepers. She had a cat eye look and very little mascara on her lashes. 

On her lips, Ke$ha wore a light pink lipstick, then used a subtle peach blush on her cheeks for some color. Some would say that it was very adult of the songstress, who's been criticized for her fashion and makeup choices in the past.

Want to rock a pink lipstick that perfectly matches your pout? InStyle magazine claims that if you try to match your lipstick color to your gums, you'll have a winning look every time!

Jennifer Lopez opts for a dewy look at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Jennifer Lopez opts for a dewy look at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

When seeking makeup inspiration, many people turn to Jennifer Lopez, and for good reason. The Latina superstar is not only renowned for her voice, but her natural beauty. Recently, Lopez showed up to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards in a stunning gold gown with equally eye-pleasing makeup on her face.

Instead of going bold with a bright color on her pout, Lopez chose to keep it simple with a nude lip gloss that gave her mouth a fresh look. On her eyes, Lopez wore brown eyeshadow that offered her peepers some depth. Black eyeliner and mascara topped off her appearance, providing volume to her lashes. Rather than attract attention to her cheeks with blush, she opted for a dewy complexion with concealer and foundation.

If you've always wanted to give your skin the sheen that Lopez had on the red carpet, you don't have to go to extremes. You can easily achieve a moist, hydrated appearance with moisturizer on your face, according to Bella Sugar. Finish it off with a tinted moisturizer, then remove any excess oil with a blotting sheet. This is an easy look you can wear at work as well as at the bar.

Stars shine with neutral makeup at Cannes Film Festival

Stars shine with neutral makeup at the Cannes Film Festival

Anyone who knows anything about movies will tell you that the Cannes Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film events of the year. Not only is it where some of Hollywood’s finest are recognized for their work on the silver screen, but their fashion as well! This year, numerous celebrities showed up to the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival to celebrate a year that’s already been filled with blockbuster hits.

Many of the stars who attended the event turned heads for their ensembles as well as the makeup they wore on the red carpet. Whether you didn’t get a chance to pick up a celebrity gossip magazine yet or search the Internet for Cannes Film Festival news, it’s not too late to see who wore what in front of the cameras! Some of these ladies’ fashion and cosmetic choices will likely set the tone for the upcoming season.

Emma Watson
This gorgeous celebrity has come a long way since originally gaining worldwide fame in the “Harry Potter” movie series. At the Cannes Film Festival, Watson chose to show off her natural beauty through the makeup she selected for the event. Rather than opt for a bold lipstick, she selected a subtle pink for her pout. Additionally, Watson kept it simple with her eyes – it seems that she had a bit of silver shimmery eyeshadow on her lids to brighten up her peepers. A hint of black mascara was also added to extend her natural lashes. However, there was nothing more than that on her face to showcase her stunning natural features!

Carey Mulligan
Watson wasn’t the only star who chose to tone it down for the red carpet event – Carey Mulligan, who starred in “The Great Gatsby,” also decided to wear less makeup in front of the cameras. Just like Watson, she proved that you don’t need to cake on the blush and eyeliner to look beautiful! Mulligan had a bit of dark mascara on her lashes to give them some volume, but did little else around her peepers. Instead of going with a vivid shade of lipstick, she thought it would be best to wear a nude shade on her pout, which worked wonderfully with her skin tone. It appears that Mulligan chose to skip the blush and opt for even more simplicity on her cheeks, and it suited her incredibly well.

Nicole Kidman
Another renowned actress who knows a thing or two about walking red carpets is Nicole Kidman, and she was present at the Cannes Film Festival. Kidman chose to wear a peachy lipstick on her lips that shined as she smiled for the cameras. She decided to be a bit bolder than Mulligan and Watson with her eye makeup choice, creating a cat-eye look around her peepers with mascara and eyeliner, according to My Daily. This technique was executed wonderfully to bring out the baby blue color of her irises.

Julianne Moore
At the Cannes Film Festival, many found Moore’s poofy retro dress to be a little much, according to The Huffington Post. However, she hit the right note with her makeup, which gave her a lively appearance. Moore had a bit of rouge blush on her cheeks and complemented the color with a deep pink lipstick on her pout. She also decided to create a dramatic look using black eyeliner and mascara around her eyes to truly make them sparkle.

Whether you want to recreate Emma Watson’s look or Carey Mulligan’s neutral appearance, it’s worth taking notes before you whip out your bag of cosmetics!
