Ellen Page smiles for photographers with bold lipstick on her pout

These days, it seems like more celebrities are getting braver when it comes to their makeup choices. Bold lipstick and dark, dramatic eyeliner are growing in popularity, and why not? Anything goes on the red carpet, and this is exactly what Ellen Page recently proved in Los Angeles.

Page was present for the premiere of “The East,” and she looked simply stunning in a little black dress that hugged her body in all the right places. While she didn’t do anything unusual with her brunette locks, Page stepped it up with bold makeup that gave her face a chic, 21st-century look. On her lips, she wore a muted red lipstick that complemented her fair skin tone. Around her eyes, she had black mascara that gave her lashes some length. Her cheeks were a bit rosy with a hint of pink blush, which topped off her entire appearance.

You don’t need to be attending a red carpet event to flaunt daring makeup like Page! For instance, you can easily make a statement by simply opting for vivid lipstick for your next outing. Real Simple magazine recommends going light on the eye makeup to allow your pout to do all of the work.

Amber Rose looks flawless with glossy pink lipstick

One woman who knows a few things about turning heads is Amber Rose, and the model isn’t shy about showing a little skin. Recently, Rose was seen on the arm of rapper and fiance Wiz Khalifa during Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas. She wore a low-cut white tank top and large gold hoop earrings as she waved to photographers at the Palms pool.

Rose is renowned for her buzz cut look, which gives her an edginess while she maintains her sexiness. However, Rose has beautiful facial features that she frequently accents with top-quality cosmetics as well – it’s not all about her (lack of) hair!

At the Palms pool, Rose piled on the black mascara to give her peepers a dramatic look. She kept it simple on the rest of her face, topping off her appearance with glossy pink lipstick that shimmered on her pout when she smiled.

Do you like wearing lip gloss but find it challenging to maintain over the course of several hours? Daily Glow recommends using a bit of face powder on your finished pout to help the gloss adhere better to your lips for long wear.

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.

Do you know what hair 'dos are hot this spring?

If you feel like you’re missing out on some of the hottest hair trends of the season, there’s no better time to brush up on the latest styles than now! Celebrities on the red carpet are doing a fantastic job of giving everyday women a little bit of inspiration.

One of the biggest trends in hair as of late seems to be the pixie cut, according to the Pittsburgh Gazette. Actress Charlize Theron is the latest to sport this ‘do, and it takes a brave woman to go without long, luscious locks! However, you might want to try this style if you’re getting tired of maintaining your hair with specialized shampoos and conditioners.

Another trend that you can consider is curly hair, which is also becoming popular around Hollywood. While some people find curls difficult to keep up, there are many hair styling products on the market today that can combat issues such as frizz.

If you aren’t sure about how curly hair will look on you, Allure magazine recommends opting for layers. This can give you the volume you need to rock some waves regardless of how your ‘do naturally looks on your head!

Are food and makeup meant to be together?

Are food and makeup meant to be together?

If you love food, have you ever thought about how it could apply to your cosmetics? These days, manufacturers aren’t just worrying about how their makeup will look on consumers’ faces – they want to make sure they’re delicious, too!

Cosmetics Design recently reported that while makeup brands aren’t necessarily creating items to be consumed, they’re including ingredients that could be ingested without causing any problems. The reason for this is because some of the same components found in food are incredibly useful in cosmetics. As more people look for natural-based eyeshadow, lip liner and mascara, food-based makeup might become popular in the near future.

Cocoa, for instance, is incredibly helpful to makeup creators because of its antioxidants. Coffee beans and chocolate extracts are also becoming mainstream in the industry. This is leading many people to believe that the food and makeup realms might come closer together in the coming years.

In any case, it’s always worth taking another look at your cosmetics to ensure that they’re safe for your face, regardless of whether they contain food. Items that don’t have expiration dates, smell strange or look dirty should be discarded, according to Parents Connect.

Kerry Washington knows how to flaunt her pout

One woman who knows a lot about showing off her gorgeous complexion in front of the cameras is Kerry Washington. When she isn’t acting, she’s making appearances at movie premieres. Recently, Washington was spotted at the debut of “Peeples” in Los Angeles looking more radiant than ever.

Washington decided to go glam for the event, showing off her curves in a beautiful black and white gown. On her face, she chose to use a bit of black eyeliner around her eyes and treated her lashes to an ample amount of dark mascara. However, it was her pout that truly stole the show – Washington opted for a mauve lipstick that accentuated the curves and voluptuous size of her lips. Under the lights of the cameras, she turned heads as she walked down the red carpet.

Not everyone is blessed with large, luscious lips, and you might be one of the many people out there with a small pout. That being said, don’t worry – there are many ways to create the illusion of more size! Parents Connect recommends using a lip liner to define their shape, then opting for a neutral lipstick.

Bobbi Brown offers tips for looking chic this season

Makeup artist Bobbi Brown knows a thing or two about makeup, and she’s certainly up to speed on how to look glam for the upcoming season. Recently, she spoke to Elle magazine to give her tips on how to look chic and summery in the coming months.

One item that Brown uses on most of her clients is bronzer, specifically on areas such as the cheeks, forehead and chin, where light generally hits the face. Not only can this give a complexion more color, but it can create a warm, natural look.

Another item that Brown can’t go without is lip liner when working on faces. She claims that using lip liner is critical to adding some much-needed volume to otherwise bland pouts. On a similar note, the makeup artist loves using brow kits to bring definition to the face.

Not sure if you can pull off all of Brown’s tricks? Cosmopolitan magazine recommends focusing on one item, such as brown eyeliner, to revolutionize your makeup routine. Over time, you can incorporate more cosmetics to give yourself a red carpet-worthy look.
