Her secret? Making drastic changes slowly. Over the course of a few months, the star has been gradually lightening her deep brunette to the sunny blonde she revealed while out in Hollywood yesterday. "I changed my hair color three times in the past year!" the star told InStyle in February. "Why not try new things? Life is short. I'll always play." That's the spirit, Drew! Going from dark brown to a light blonde like Barrymore's can be damaging, so if you're also feeling playful with your color, follow the star's lead and work in stages. "Try taking the process with days or even weeks in between to see if your hair will get too dry or damaged," said colorist Marie Robinson, who works with Michelle Williams. "Start with a color close to your natural that is a subtle enhancement. If you notice excessive dryness, then work with the lightness you already have." Because blonde hues tend to makeRead More »from How to Lighten Your Hair Color Without Damaging It, like Drew Barrymore

Rex USA; Courtesy Photo; Time Inc Photo StudioOh, baby! Duchess Catherine and Prince William still have a few more months before their little one arrives, but Butter London has already created a nail polish to commemorate the mini-monarch. Named "Pitter Patter" to mirror the sound of tiny footsteps soon to be heard all over Buckingham Palace, the shade is an ultra-deep eggplant with dynamic plum shimmer. Ever since Roman Emperors donned the bold hue, purple has been commonly considered a sign of nobility, and we can't think of a more stylish way to celebrate the arrival of the royal baby. This marks the third regal lacquer created by Butter London, with the shimmery violet "No More Waity, Katie," celebrating Will and Kate's engagement, and the lavender steel "Lillibet's Jubilee" to honor Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne. Shop Pitter Patter now for $15 at butterlondon.com.Read More »from Awww! Will and Kate’s Baby Inspires New Nail Polish Color
When we weren't looking at Gwyneth Paltrow's see-through ensemble at the Iron Man 3 premiere, we couldn't help but notice the glowing makeup and subtle blush lip gloss the world's most beautiful woman had chosen to complete her look. The color amped up the natural tone of her lips and gave off a shiny finish. "My inspiration for Gwyneth's look was the Earth," said her makeup artist Angela Levin. "She reminds me of the things I love about our world-she's an inspiration to women and people." To keep in line with the organic feel of Paltrow's makeup, Levin opted for Chanel's Glossimer in Rose Sauvage. The sheer petal hue is part of the label's new summer lineup, and looks gorgeous layered over natural lips and vivid shades alike. Find the product for $30 at chanel.com.

Peter Macdiarmid/Getty ImagesTime has flown by! We can't believe it's already been two years since we saw Prince William and Catherine Middleton walk down the aisle at Westminster Abbey and say their "I Dos." And their lives (and ours!) haven't been the same since: The gown Kate wore by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen became a museum piece, her maid of honor Pippa Middleton shot into the spotlight thanks to her backside that very day, the Duchess became a style icon with her her every move tracked (and eventually selling out), and finally, the love keeps going now that the blissful couple now have a baby on the way. But it all started April 29, 2011. Here's to many more happy years for Will and Kate!Read More »from Has it Been Two Years Already? Happy Anniversary, Kate & Will!

Time Inc Photo Studio (2)Forget the twisted mascara wands and rotating brushes-InStyle tested them all and L'Oreal's Voluminous Original came out on top as the best inexpensive mascara in the 2013 Best Beauty Buys!

"I've spent thousands on mascara-this is the best!" she told InStyle.

Having a Moment: Bob Haircuts like Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Lawrence, Katharine McPhee, and Nikki ReedBy InStyle.com | Beauty – Thu, Apr 25, 2013 12:00 PM EDT
Michael N. Todaro/WireImage; Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage; John Sciulli/Getty Images for GUESS; Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagicDon't call it a comeback-the bob has been here for years! The style has been a standard since the 1920s, but stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Nikki Reed, and Katharine McPhee recently gave the classic look new life. Christina Hendricks is the latest celebrity to jump on the trend: She debuted her new 'do at Mad Men event in New York City, and proved that the versatile cut works on just about every face shape. Inspired to make a similar change? Print out a picture of the version you like best so your stylist can tailor it to suit you. The choppy sections should be cut opposite in proportion to your face shape-square or round faces are balanced by longer layers, while longer face shapes can go with shorter pieces.

Courtesy Photo; NCP/Star Max/FilmMagicKim Kardashian's maternity style has turned heads and started conversations, as the reality star has not shied away from curve-hugging silhouettes and sky-high stilettos throughout her pregnancy. And her shopping jaunt in New York's Tribeca neighborhood yesterday was no different: She strode across the downtown sidewalk in a black Stella McCartney dress and matching Valentino cardigan. However, it's the footwear that's our favorite part of this outfit because the sandals are a little ode to her boyfriend and father of her unborn baby Kanye West. The wing-covered heels are part of the collection Giuseppe Zanotti designed for West's show last year-the white pair she's wearing are from last season, but this spring they're available in a black and gold version, shown here. Find them for $1,500 on colette.fr.

Courtesy Photo; Time Inc Photo StudioAside from the creative makeup choices on Halloween, can blue lipstick really be worn in the real world? We asked InStyle.com Assistant Beauty Editor Marianne Mychaskiw to try out the Hello Sailor shade by Lipstick Queen, and it turns out, the results were more chic than shocking.
"I'm a sucker for lip products, and the tawny nudes in Lipstick Queen's impressive range have been staples in my makeup bag for years. The brand's new Hello Sailor shade ($25; barneys.com) served as a fond reminder of the dark blue lipstick my best friend and I used to steal from her cool older sister's Caboodle kit, but while the '90s are having a renaissance, I wasn't sure if I was ready to revisit such a severe color. To my surprise, the product was very sheer and transformed into a transparent berry stain once it hit my lips. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to lip color, so I loved how the balm-like consistency allowed me to build upon the intensity. Plus, it's a pain-free alternative toRead More »from Editor-Tested: This Blue Lipstick is Actually Wearable
