Anne Hathaway’s Makeup

Anne Hathaway wore Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet at last night’s 2013 SAG Awards.  ” The definition of the cheeks and cheekbones are synergistically a part of the complexion, and I always regard them as part of my base. For this look I wanted to create a tactile effect and to bring a beautiful apricot hue to the apples of the cheeks to offset the lip colour. I used Jouer Mineral powder blush in Peach Bouquet.” – Makeup Artist, Kate Lee

rag & bone SS 2013 featuring Kate Moss

For SS 2013, rag & bone returned to England to shoot Kate Moss in the Cotswolds. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan, the campaign captures Moss in Southrop, Gloucestershire. This rag & bone first look is SO me. Looks like I love wearing tailored inspired clothes with a hint of masculine, tom boyish. I am a big believer in the beauty of contrasting in this case feminine with masculine. The look: White Jefferson Blazer, White Winchester Shirt, White Betty Top, Black Moto Pant, Black Fender Platforms.

“We shot our first campaign on a deserted North London street so thought it would be an interesting contrast to follow up in a remote English village, which Kate happens to have an affinity for. It was also a fun play on our British heritage.” — Marcus Wainwright, Managing Partner.

Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream

Great winter anti-aging face cream new from kiehls Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream. It’s thick in texture and very hydrating. According to Kiehl’s the cream addresses loss of elasticity:

Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing  Cream

“Loss of elasticity begins in our 20’s with the slow progressive decrease of our elastin and collagen fibers. It is one of the fundamentals reasons why fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores begin forming. Maintaining elasticity is essential to preserving younger looking skin.”-Dr. Adam Geyer, Kiehl’s Products Development Consulting Dermatologist.

JESSICA ALBA

On Sunday’s red carpet Jessica Alba wore a gorgeous peach-colored gown by Oscar de la Renta. “The dress was the inspiration,” says makeup artist Lauren Andersen. “I loved the contrast between her glowing skin and the matte orange lip. It’s an almost tropical pop of color that’s not an exact match for the dress but close.”

Skin: Lauren prepped the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. She then used Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and fanned the product out in the center of the forehead to create dimension. She finished the skin step with the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light applied all over to create a golden, subtle warmth. “It’s a soft, refined shimmer that’s glowy,” says Lauren.
