Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImageA nude lip can balance a dramatic eye or make an elegant statement on its own-beauty rules the Kardashian sisters know and live by. At a recent launch event for the Kardashians' new beauty line Khroma Beauty, we caught up with Khloe to find out just how she gets it so right. "It's so funny what lip liner does for you! I always make sure to trace around my lips with a slightly darker color than my lipstick," she told InStyle.com. "A lot of people think lip liner is old-school, but if you want your lips to look pouty and perfect, that's the trick." Khroma includes an all-in-one set in three versatile buff tones, perfect for nailing the look. An easy way to find your perfect hue is to use the natural color of your lips as a guide, veering no more than two shades lighter or darker. "A good nude color for me might not be the same as Kim's or Kourtney's since they are darker than I am, but a nude lipstick can't be too pale, otherwise it looks chalky," she added.

StartraksPhoto; Courtesy PhotoRachel Zoe faces a problem so many of us do around the holidays: Not. Enough. Time. To. Shop. "It's pretty stressful," the celebrity stylist told InStyle.com when she stopped by to style holiday looks at the Piperlime store in New York last night. "My life does not lend to shopping days. So, I've been doing a lot online, more and more." In fact, she was one of the many who contributed to Cyber Monday's epic sales day ($1.46 billion in sales!). "It was really fun, actually," she said of her online experience. "I bought some stuff for [my son] Skyler, like a pretend kitchen and an amazing vintage airplane that he can drive. It has pedals." And with gift-giving sessions fast approaching, her advice on choosing something for your tot is simple: "Buy what they love!"

Samir Hussein/WireImage; WENN.comBehold, loyal Princess followers-the Duchess got a haircut! Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge debuted new side-swept bangs when made a visit to the Natural History Museum in London yesterday, a sweet complement to her always-shiny chestnut waves. We're pleasantly surprised to see this update because the royal rarely makes changes to her famous strands-as if she needs to!-and while her overall length was left untouched, the shorter layers frame her face and give her trademark look more dimension.

Courtesy Photo; Everett CollectionTwo Disney classics are getting modern updates-Boy Meets World and Life Size! First, cute '90s couple Cory and Topanga-better known as Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel-have signed on to star in the upcoming series Girl Meets World, which follows the married couple and their 13-year-old daughter Riley Matthews. "I promise with the entirety of my heart that we will make Girl Meets World with the same honesty, innocence, and intelligence that you learned to expect from Boy Meets World," Fishel wrote on her Tumblr. We can't wait! Next up, Tyra Banks confirmed via Twitter that she's breaking out her tiara to play real-life doll Eve in a sequel to the original 2000 film Life-Size for Life Size 2. (No word yet if Lindsay Lohan plans to reprise her role as well.) With these Disney franchise additions, we can't help but wonder: Is it too early to hope Hilary Duff will star in a Lizzie McGuire reunion special? Fingers crossed!

Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic; Michael Kovac/GettyMiley Cyrus is scissor-happy! Back in August, the bride-to-be swapped her trademark layers for a pixie crop, and just last week, she chopped her long fringe into a short, piecey style. But this change wasn't a spur-of-the-moment decision, the singer may have been plotting the spiked 'do for a while. "While she loves the reveal, Miley's choices are more calculated than impulsive," hairstylist Kristina Barricelli, who has worked with Cyrus, told us in our December issue. What do you think of her new cut? Tell us in the comments! Plus, if you're feeling bold, head over to our Hollywood Makeover Tool to preview a pixie cut on yourself-no scissors required.

ABC/ADAM TAYLORFive couples remain on Dancing With the Stars-and two of those will be eliminated tonight! With the semi-finals pressure on, we caught up with Karina Smirnoff to get the inside scoop on how she made her double dose of costumes stand out on the dance floor with partner Apolo Anton Ohno. "I wanted to make the songs match the outfits and the themes," she told InStyle.com of her inspiration. Their first number, a Big Top Jazz routine to "What You Waiting For?" by Gwen Stefani, featured red, white, and black circus-inspired outfits topped off with thematic face paint. "I really wanted to take in the character in my outfit in this dance," Smirnoff said. "It was called Big Top Jazz for a reason!" For their second dance, a rumba to "Man in the Mirror," she wanted her look to have a "sensual, sexy, with a touch of innocence" feel. "I really didn't want the dress to stand out for this dance," Smirnoff said of her all-white look, which featured accents of embroidery, beats, and cut-outRead More »from Dancing with the Stars: Karina Smirnoff on Her Semi-Finals Looks

ZUMApress.com; RAMEY PHOTO; Doug Peters/PA Photos/ABACAPRESS.COM; Paul A. Hebert/GettyTwilight brought in some big bucks! Breaking Dawn - Part 2 grossed $141.3 million in its opening weekend-making in the eight biggest opening weekend opening of all time-as well as $199.6 million internationally. The mega-appeal is due in part to the cast, including Kristen Stewart, who embarked on an around-the-world tour to promote the finale movie in the series and worked with stylist Tara Swennen to pack some of the boldest, brightest, and best outfits we've ever seen her wear. In Berlin, she shined in a gold Elie Saab dress; in Madrid, she glowed in sunny yellow Christian Dior; in London, she wore a black lace and sequin jumpsuit by Zuhair Murad; and in Hollywood, she dazzled in an illusion Zuhair Murad gown.Read More »from Twilight Premiere Style: Kristen Stewart's Premiere Looks

FameFlynet; Courtesy Photo; Time Inc Digital Photo StudioRather than breaking out her tried-and-true red lipstick again, Kristen Stewart wore a vivid magenta to the Los Angeles premiere of Breaking Dawn - Part 2. The punchy shade makes for a fun twist on fall's subdued tones, and we were so inspired by the look, that we just had to ask her makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, for the exact shade! "It was really about continuing the luminosity of her dress [a nude Zuhair Murad number] with shimmering makeup," said Dempsey, who opted for Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Color in La Sensuelle ($33; at chanel.com). "I used incandescent shadow so the light would bounce off her eyes and contrast bitten, almost stained lips with Kristen's porcelain skin." The lipstick had a matte finish, so to prevent Stewart's pucker from feeling dry, Dempsey swiped on a layer of Chanel's Rouge Coco Baume ($33; chanel.com) before applying the color. Try the high-impact lip look for a night out!
