Usually wearing more than one beauty trend at a time can cause a clash, but Emmy Rossum proved that the key is choosing the right combination. She matched emerald smoky eyes and nude lips with an easy braid and white nails at yesterday's The 20/20 Experience album release party.
By incorporating Pantone's Colour Of the Year, Emmy's green shadow is spot-on for 2013. To re-create the look, apply Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Green ($9.95) in the lower waterline and on the upper lids. Then top with a golden shadow in the inner corners and on the center of lids. Emmy balanced the bold shadow with a glossy nude lip — yet another trend right now. Her effortless french braid is similar to styles seen on the Honor and Marchesa Spring 2013 catwalks. Finally, for nails, swipe on a few coats of Orly Nail Lacquer in Dayglow ($18.95) for a bold white manicure that has been spotted as a celebrity favourite. Which trends will you be mixing and matching in the coming months?
It seems March is a very popular month amongst the beauty pack. It nearly broke our hearts narrowing down the top 10, must-have beauty products, so we decided to go to 15! There's a magical Spring 2013 colour collection from Yves Saint Laurent that will blow your mind, some rich and vampy new lipsticks from Tom Ford, a power serum packed full of vitamins from Dermalogica, a natural skincare range from Nivea, and so much more. Phew! Credit cards at the ready...
Whether it's a work-related event during the week, brunch with the girls on the weekend, or date night with the boy — we're a busy bunch here at Sugar. As you might have already guessed, we're also celebrity stalkers, so if Olivia Palermo busts out a bronzed smoky or Diane Kruger shows-off a new braid, you can bet your bottom dollar one of us will walk into the office sporting the same look the very next day! With all the inspiring (and sometimes daring) hair and makeup on display, we thought it only fair we share. Click through to see what's on our makeup radars this week.
Kate Moss apparently has a knack for doing her own manicure, so it seems her new nail polish line with Rimmel London is a natural next step. "I'm really good at painting," she told Telegraph. "It's one of the things I like to do on holiday — a line up of all the girls and make their nails look nice." She may be a fashion trendsetter, but Kate also has a knack for wearing the next big thing in nails, too. "I got into the long, thin, vampy lady [nails], but now I'm back into fresh and younger and shorter."
The model is also up on the classic nude trend with the neutral beige Soul Sessions as her favourite colour from the collection. If you're more into the vibrant hues, Kate's latest nail collection has a great range of colour inspired by, well, a lot of things. "It's quite instinctive really, something would inspire me whether it's, you know, a band or a film or some kind of character — Debbie Harry, you know in Studio 54." Kate's Super Pro nail line will be available in stores soon (we'll keep you posted!) and she only has one rule for you: matching is forbidden. "On set it would be a big no-no to match the lip with the nail," she said. "It's always a clash."
It's officially the month of love and to celebrate (any excuse, really) we're bringing you the latest and greatest products set to hit shelves this month. Bobbi Brown's Pink & Red Collection couldn't come at a better time — hello Valentine's Day face — and Benefit Cosmetics' The One is like a lip tint, cheek stain, contouring cream and highlighter in, well, one. You know we're big Yves Saint Laurent mascara fans, and this month they're coming at you with waterproof blue and violet. Way too amazing to explain in words, click through and see for yourself.
Out of all the celebeauties to walk the red carpet at yesterday's SAG Awards, we were flawed by the perfection that is Rose Byrne.
