Beauty Tip #17

Rashida Jones
Winged Smokey Eye

At the 19th Annual Women in Hollywood Party, Rashida Jones looked absolutely stunning with pleated hair and winged, smoked eyes created using mark products. To recreate her sultry peepers, makeup artist Jamie Greenberg and suggests first layering your lids with primer for a strong base. Next, apply a shimmery taupe to the insides of lids to bring out the eyes. Gradually layer a deep pewter over the lids and use a midnight shade on the outer corners, passing the lash line to create a smoked cat eye. For a dimensional pop, she lined top lids with a blue cream liner and her bottom lash lines with a deep bronze. She then suggests finishing the look with two coats of black mascara to top and bottom lashes.

Lauren Conrad

Oxblood Lips

We’re loving Lauren Conrad’s dramatic, oxblood lip that she showed off at the Design for the Cure Gala. We caught up with celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine and got the inside scoop on the look. “This was the perfect event to fancy things up a bit,” Nadine told us. The darker bold lip is a sultry look that’s easily achievable for the fall. On a prepped lip, Nadine lined and then filled the lip with a wine-burgundy hue. She then layered a bright red gloss on top to create depth and shine. When recreating the look, remember to blot and reapply to get long-lasting color.

Soft Winged-Liner

Jennifer Garner
At the Argo premiere in Los Angeles,Jennifer Garner looked absolutely stunning with smoldering winged lids and flushed cheeks. “All the emphasis was in the eyes,” her makeup artist, Monika Blunder told “I wanted to give her a ‘60s vibe, while keeping her very natural and soft.” To recreate the starlet’s eyes, Blunder suggests starting with a creamy black pencil and lining the top lash line and lower inner waterline. Then with a brush, blend a light brown shadow on the lids, focusing on the outer corners to soften the wings. Finish the look with two coats of mascara and optional individual lashes. 

Coral Lips

If your lips only know pink and red hues, take a break from your routine and try a glossed coral lip like Lucy Hale did at the 10th Annual Young Hollywood Party. Celebrity makeup artist, Jeffrey Paul gave us tips on how to get the star’s luscious lips. “Lips liven up the skin and enhance the eyes when the right color is chosen,” Paul told “A bold shade was the best choice to balance the femininity of Hale’s light blue dress,” Paul told To get the look, Paul suggests starting with a super moisturizing balm to keep lips hydrated, a must when applying any shade. Before applying your creamy lipstick, line lips with a deeper coral color and blend. Lightly layer the lipstick and at the very center of the lips, add gloss to add dimension and fullness. To make sure the color doesn’t bleed, blot with a tissue, reapply and clean up the outline for a defined pout.
