natalie-portman2.jpgNatalie Portman is a true fan of the smokey eye, and she always wears it well. At the premiere of her latest film, Brothers, Natalie was exquisite as usual— her makeup was flawless! We can’t help but admire her eye makeup, since this is the time of year we find ourselves rockin’ different variations of the classic look.

To create a similar look at home, we suggest you try Maybelline’s new Stylish Smokes eyeshadow quad in Natural Smokes. This quad along with the other 3 in the collection has every shadow you’ll need to give your peepers the perfect smokey eye. Add some eyeliner and your favorite mascara and you’re set to hit the town looking bold and beautiful.

Maybelline Stylish Smokes, $5.49 each,



An effortless-looking hairstyle is always sexy when worn with a more put-together look. Jessica Biel proved this when she complimented her crisp strapless dress, long cardigan and flats with a loose, texurized ponytail for the premiere of the new family film, Planet 51. We’re loving the free-spirited feeling of this hairstyle, created by Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel.




To add texture to her hair before securing it in a ponytail, Adir sprayed it with Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray ($23, As an extra boost, he followed this with a little teasing at the crown and made sure to leave some loose pieces around Jessica’s face.

We got the scoop from Tresemme stylist Tyler Laswell on how he created this full-bodied look for the star:



To begin, prep hair with TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray ($4.75, all over.




Next, separate hair into four sections; sides, back of head and top of head. Then, wrap 1” sections around a curling iron, holding the ends. Alternate between a 1” curling iron and a 1 1/2” iron. This adds more demention and volume to the hair.




Once entire head curled, use a blow dryer and just your fingertips to stretch and soften the curls into waves. Finish the look with one of our favorite glossing products, TRESemmé No-Frizz Shine Spray ($4.75, to create a natural sheen.


Blake Lively looked nothing short of amazing— does this woman ever look bad??— when she attended Chanel’s “Fête d’Hiver” Benefit last week.

Makeup artist Angela Levin took inspiration for Blake Lively’s makeup look from the actress’s Chanel diamond camelia brooch.

“I wanted her eyes to be dark and sexy, but the rest of her face to be light and fresh. She’s young and sexy and wears a smoky eye so well!”, says Levin.


To acheive that “light and fresh” look, Levin used Chanel Lift Lumiere Fluid Makeup in Beige ($65, all over her face, and set it with Poudre Cristalline Translucent Powder ($60, On her cheeks she dusted on Chanel Blush Duo in Tweed Rose.


For her eyes, bronze and sand shade eyeshadows were used as well as a deep plum shade that added dimension in the crease.

Blake’s eyes were lined on the upper and lower lashes with a black shimmer liner and three coats of mascara.

To finish the look, a soft pink lip was created with Chanel Rouge Allure in Mythic ($30,, a fabulous nude shade, topped with a bit of Rouge Allure Laque in Ming ($32,
Let’s face it, Lauren Conrad can rock a red lip. Celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine gave Ms. Conrad an old-Hollywood look reminiscent of Lana Turner and Rita Hayworth that we can’t help but love.


Amy used mark Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Wave ($6,, but here are some more options for creating your own glamorous, retro-inspired look.
