The real question is how she stays sample size eating all those fried potatoes.

The Mission: Give Abbie Cornish a fresh and pretty beauty look for Chanel's dinner in support of the Tribeca Film Festival Artists Awards Program at the Odeon last night.
The Makeup Artist: Jeanine Lobell for Chanel Beauty.
The Face: Lobell used a minimal base, choosing to focus her energies on Cornish's cheeks. A concentrated dose of Chanel Rose Dust Powder Blush really showcases the way Cornish's apples light up when she smiles.
The Eyes: To bring out her green peepers, Lobell went with a purple liner, Chanel's Eye Definer pen in Violet Smoke, brushing a few coats of its Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Magic Night-a deep brownish plum-across her lids. Multiple slashings of Chanel's Inimitable Mascara in Noir, on both the upper and lower lash line, helped make Cornish's eyes "pop."
The Lip: Peter Philips' much-discussed new Rouge Coco Lipstick line made yet another red-carpet showing here, as Lobell reached for its Organdi Rose shade, a shimmering pink that added a littleRead More »from Makeup Bag Check: Abbie Cornish
If, like us, you've been fascinated by Nicole Richie's transformation from bad girl with bad highlights to stylish mother and entrepreneur with gorgeous chestnut brown locks, then you might be interested in meeting George Papanikolas. The Joico celebrity colorist is responsible for making Richie the beautiful brunette she is today-not to mention keeping Mila Kunis' auburn streaks perfectly intact and even working some magic on one Britney Spears (mostly during her comeback periods). He's also well versed in protecting hair from the summer sun, which can add unwanted hues to your perfect dye job. "Precautions like hats and SPF products like Joico's K-PAK Sun Therapy Protective Sun Milk are particularly important for women who use a permanent or semi-permanent base color, as they can get uneven fading if they don't shield out the UV rays," Papanikolas explains. For women with their own base color and a few highlights already in place, though, Papanikolas ascribes to an "if you can'tRead More »from Hair Color Tips From Nicole Richieâ€™s Mane Man
Beauty Counter is breaking for warmer pastures again this weekend, heading to Puerto Rico for a girls' weekend in the guise of a bachelorette party. There will be no inappropriate headwear or unexpected cameos from curiously oiled-down "policemen," but there will be plenty of beach time. Slipping into a bathing suit for the first time this season is inevitable, which prompts a host of questions-to start with, one-piece or two? If the latter, should we opt for high-waisted bottoms, or something a little skimpier and tan line-friendly? The bigger quandary on my traveling companions' minds seems to be how to go about choosing the best depilatory method to ensure silky smooth, hairless skin that's ready for sun exposure. To properly appease them-and those of you who are likely struggling with similar issues this time of year-we've consulted Shobha Tummala, founder and CEO of Shobha, where Manhattanites-in-the-know flock for all of their threading, sugaring, and waxing needs.

We were huge fans of Gap's perfume portfolio circa 1994; its fragrances Earth and Grass scented much of our high school experience. So we were thrilled last spring when the brand launched Close, which is designed for a twenties-and-above, more "mature" crowd. This week, the retail giant has released another similarly sophisticated scent, simply called Stay. The idea here is to evoke the "freeness and freshness" of summer. Green hydrangea-a uniquely crisp floral-blends with freesia, light blue lotus, and soft white peony to provide the weekends-spent-upstate montage that runs through our head with every spritz. Amber musk and driftwood merge together for a subtly warm dry-down. It's simple, chic, and provides that clean and airy burst we'll be looking for when the summer humidity sets in.

"I'm not an anime freak or anything," Simone Legno insisted over ear-drum popping bass beats at Arena nightclub last night as we sat in a corner as far away from the speakers as possible, craning our neck to hear the Italian artist speak. The man behind Tokidoki, the Japanese-inspired brand that features bubbly illustrations plastered across everything from wallpaper, clothing, and accessories to zip drives, iPhone cases, and now makeup, sure could've fooled us. "My work is my life," he continued, "so whatever I experience, I draw inspiration from." Growing up in Italy during the eighties, Legno was bombarded by Japanese animation, which infiltrated popular Italian culture at the time. His unique fusion of classic Japanese art, cute icons, and Italian stereotypes "like Vespas and pizza" eventually caught the eye of Pooneh Mohajer-Arnold and Ivan Arnold of Hard Candy Cosmetics. The couple convinced Legno to move to L.A. six years ago, and his brand was born-with the addition of aRead More »from Tokidokiâ€™s Animation Domination Comes To Sephora

Ponytails, pink cheeks, and shimmering, smoky eyes. At Michael Kors, the beauty look was a tony take on All-American simplicity.

We swear by Goody barrettes-the flat, small, colored ones that have become increasingly scarce at drugstores nationwide (if you stumble upon a ten-pack, buy in bulk). Our general love for the brand was only amplified when we discovered its new Eco Movement brushes, which are arriving at Walmart stores just in time for Earth Month. Comprising two different shapes-a large cushion paddle and an oval paddle-the tools are made from natural bamboo and boast patented ComforTip wood bristles that won't snag or pull. You'll appreciate them for their simple, sustainable design-and the gentle scalp massage you get with every swipe.

This, dear readers, is a photo of my nails-not two minutes after a manicure, but two weeks after a trip to the salon. What kind of deal with the devil did I have to make to maintain pure chip-free red polish for 14 whole days without reapplying or touching up? None, thanks to CND's Shellac, a new hybrid nail technology that applies like a polish, stays on like a gel, and dries instantly (literally, I rifled through my bag only seconds after I had this done and there was no smudging nor regretful mutterings of expletives). Here's how it goes down: The professional system has a base coat, a 12-piece color line to choose from, and a top coat-all of which are "3-Free" so they're completely devoid of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP. After each step, nails go under a special UV lamp to seal every layer; what you're left with is a completely perfect, glistening paint job. The key point of difference is the removal process, which involves individual acetone-drenched pads that fasten to yourRead More »from News Flash: Chipped Nail Polish To Go The Way Of The Walkman

Chanel makes one; La Mer does too. For the past few years, we've been hoarding fancy liquid sunscreens, as they're something of an unsung hero of summer skincare regimens. Everyone knows that wearing a daily SPF product-at least on your face-is essential for warding off UV damage, but applying heavy creams with high levels of broad-spectrum protection becomes increasingly less appealing as the weather gets warm. Liquid formulas that go on sheer can provide the defense against the elements you need as well as a barely-there finish that's perfect for layering over your antioxidant serums and under your makeup. Now, Neutrogena has brought this skincare essential to the mass market with its Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock fluid, the first of its kind to line drugstore shelves. It comes in SPF 55 and a whopping SPF 70 for superior sun protection with a virtually weightless feel, and like all Neutrogena sun products, these are non-comedogenic, so they won't clog pores or causeRead More »from Drugstore Discovery Of The Week: Neutrogenaâ€™s Liquid Gold
