Pair retro ’60s with a laid back California coastal vibe and you get the covetable makeup look seen at Nanette Lepore’s Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show. This fresh-faced yet fashion forward look is a little over-the-top for day but with a few subtle tweaks, I think I made it suitable enough for everyday. Here’s how I got the look:
Our second installment of reader raves (see the facial scrub that was yesterday’s fave) is for two It Cosmetics products. The It Cosmetics Brow Power, $24 and It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush, $20. Here’s why …
“My two favorite products right now are both from the It Cometics brand. The Brow Power pencil creates a fuller-looking brow without appearing fake and painted on. And the other product is a lip conditioner called Vitality Lip Flush. It is a pale pink, which gives me a very natural-looking lip for those of us who have lost all color in our lips due to age. Awesome products!” — Jan

While most actresses played it safe when it came to hair and makeup at last night’s Academy Awards, a couple, and only a couple of them went for it and tried statement-making looks — Olivia Wilde and Kerry Washington. They also both happen to be pregnant, so they get double kudos from me for not playing it safe and going for makeup looks we’ll be talking about around the water cooler (or coffee maker) today.
Kerry Washington went for on-trend vampy lips. The hue was stunning on her skin tone and looked modern and fresh — not the same ‘ol red lip we’ve been seeing for the past couple of years. Get a similar lip look with Chanel Rouge Allure in Envoutante, $35.
Olivia Wilde went for dramatic, retro lined eyes. A perfect complement to her black and white ensemble. Recreate the look with my sister Sam’s new favorite liquid liner: Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner, $19
