Nicole Scherzinger let her mouth do all the talking for her at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards. With her bold, super-bright, pink lips she was definitely making a bold statement. Women with high self confidence should have no problem rocking a color this bright on their mouth, but if you are a little more unsure of yourself you might want to opt for a slightly more subtle shade.

To copy Nicole’s lips you need look no further than these three possibilities.

Smashbox BCRF Be Legendary Lipstick in Inspiration (pictured center) is a fun, deep and bright berry color, get it for $19 at

Emma Stone stepped out for Elle’s Women in Hollywood Tribute with a homerun of a look. Her fringe bangs and side layers framed her rosy-colorwashed cheeks perfectly, while her raspberry stained lips coordinated beautifully with her dress. Then there were her dramatic eyes, peeking out under her long bangs they were bright and blue under a thick line of dark eyeliner. Her look was bright and dramatic enough for the flashbulb frenzy that accompanies red carpet events. If you’re looking for something a little less flashy but just as fresh, you’re going to want to focus on your lips and not your eyes.
To achieve stained, yet soft, lip color you’ll want to check out a product like Smashbox’s Limitless Lip Stain and Color Seal Balm in Sangria or Petal. With a feather-resistant stain in marker form on one end, you’ll be able to easily apply the color and watch it sink into lips, creating color depth. Then you can use the lip balm at the other end to add a little moisture and softness back to lips to really set the look.

If you’re looking for a warm, reddish hue for fall, look no further then Amy Adams’ perfect shade. Instead of opting for a deep, dark auburn, the beautiful Ms. Adams has a beautifully, almost golden, cinnamon brown color that highlights her face amazingly. Because of the peach undertones in her skin, a shade that was a darker auburn or just more red would completely wash out her face and leave her looking ruddy. If you’re considering a reddish-tone like this one for fall, make sure you think through to how warm (more golden) or cool (more ash brown) you want the color to be.
Jessica-Biel-Blue-Nails.jpgWe are completely enamored with Jessica Biel’s blue nails. She showed up at the 4th Annual Variety’s Power of Women Luncheon last week not only looking stunning in a printed dress by Gucci, but with amazing nails to boot! We love the dark navy polish, especially since it’s accented with tons of shimmer.

To get the look yourself, try Essie Aruba Blue ($8 at It’s a sapphire color with a frosty, shimmery finish—just like Jessica’s!

One huge perk of being Jennifer Lopez is that being at Paris Fashion Week is no big deal. The talented starlet hit the Chanel show and showed off her own flawless face. I was most drawn into her eyes, the nearly cat eye liner was so perfect for the event. 

Copying this look is relatively easy. You just need a deep black gel eyeliner (like Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner), a thin tipped brush, (like Bobbi Brown Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush) and a steady hand. Start by tracing the lash line edge of your upper lid from the inner tip all the the way to outer edge. Add a little extra emphasis right at the bottom lash line of the outer lid and you have this winged look that is perfectly dramatic and yet not too much for broad daylight hours. When going for a dramatic look like this, try to keep the rest of your makeup understated, like Jennifer did.
