While most people consider ponytails to be more weekend appropriate, Kiernan Shipka proves just how fashionable and classic the look can be. The Mad Men star (yes, that’s smart-mouthed Sally Draper all grown-up) pulled her locks into center-parted, high-shine pony, showing off her gorgeous glowing skin. Want to take your ponytail to the next level? Check out this post from Gloss Daily, where we show you how to style the perfect high ponytail with help from a star stylist.
The best way to compliment this hairstyle is to create a natural makeup look, which we break down for you in this step-by-step video tutorial. Simplicity is key in this less-is-more look–after season upon season of long, flowing waves, it’s time to show off that pretty face of yours!

While there are plenty of contenders, we consider Camilla Belle a best-brows-ever veteran — a title she so graciously preserved at the premiere of Cavemen in Los Angeles last week. Dewy skin and minimal eye makeup balance the ferocious vibes cast by her choppy bob hairstyle and bold, nearly-matte lip. If we had to guess, we’d say her pout was inspired by Pantone’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid (we recommend trying this matte lip gel by Marc Jacobs Beauty — you’ll get the pigment of a matte with the comfort of a gel). The entire look is strikingly sexy and fashion-forward without overdoing it.

While most people can’t stop talking about Miranda Lambert’s rockin’ new bod (girlfriend looks amazing), we can’t stop talking about her gorgeous retro look at the Grammy Awards last weekend! This side-swept hair and red lip combo is vintage perfection. Here’s how to copy her look.
Start by plugging in a set of hot rollers so that they heat up while you blow dry (we love Remington Ionic Protective Hot Rollers). While it might seem counterintuitive to give yourself a blowout when you’re going to be curling your hair, heat styling is key when creating the deep-side part we see in Miranda’s look. Blow dry your bottom layers as usual, but as you move towards the top and the part you’ve created, use a round brush to dry your hair in the direction you want your curls to fall in.
Once you’ve finished drying, divide your hair into sections so that you can begin curling the bottom layers first. Take 1-1/2-inch sections and spritz them with a medium hold hair spray (try Herbal Essences Set Me Up Stylers hairspray in medium hold) then wrap the hair around the roller and curl it in toward your face pinning it in place at the scalp. Continue this process throughout your entire head. When the rollers cool, you’ll know it’s time to begin unraveling. Begin taking each roller out individually, resisting the urge to mess with the shape of the curls (you won’t look like Shirley Temple for long — we promise!). Once your hair is roller-free, take a paddle brush and gently comb through the curls, sweeping them all to one side. Lightly mist your hair again with hairspray to set, but don’t go overboard, this style is meant to look soft and romantic.

Natalie Zea was bold and beautiful last week at the 2013 TCA Winter Press Tour FOX All-Star Party. We love her entire romantic look but what stands out for us most is her rose gold smoky eye; it’s perfect for those who are interested in experimenting with a classic smokey eye but typically shy away from dark makeup.
Here’s how to get Natalie’s look: After applying your usual primer and foundation, go the extra mile and pat on an eye shadow primer from your lash line to your brow bone (try Nars Smudge Proof Eye Shadow Base – it’s lightweight but powerful formula will keep your shadow in place for hours). This extra dose of primer will keep your gorgeous eye makeup in place all day. Next select your eye shadow palette – you’ll want it to range from a pale pink shimmer to a deep plum matte (we recommend Urban Decay’s new Naked 3 palette , which is rose gold specific).
Begin by using a light eyeshadow such as Urban Decay’s “Dust;” blend this shadow from your lash line all the way up to your brow bone. Next, cover your eye lid only in a medium rose shade such as Urban Decay’s “Buzz”. Use and angled brush to smudge that same color along your lower lash line. Finally, blend a dark reddish tint such as Urban Decay’s “Darkside” into your eyelid crease and blend any lines. Finish your upper lash line with a swipe of liquid eyeliner. The, use highlighter to brighten the inner corners of your eyes. Swipe on some mascara (top and bottom lashes!) and you’re good to go!

There’s no question about it: Lupita Nyong’o was positively glowing at the Palm Springs Film Festival Gala. The 12 Years a Slave actress was announced as a BAFA Rising Star Award nominee this week, but this look makes her a beauty award winner in our book!
To create a similar look, start with an all-over primer and follow with a tinted moisturizer or lightweight foundation (since you’re going for an all-over glow, you don’t want to go too matte with your base). You’ll want to keep it simple in the eye-makeup department; lightly dust a shimmery pale shadow from your lash line up to your brow bone. Next, take a highlighter pencil and line your inner rims for some extra sparkle (we love Make Up For Ever Eye Pencil in White). Skip your typical eyeliner routine and swipe on a couple coats of lengthening mascara instead. Swirl a pink cream blush onto the apples of your cheeks and follow by a dusting of illuminating powder over your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose (try Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in “Lightscapade”.) A sheer red lipgloss will give your pout a subtle pop of color that stands out in a big way against the rest of your minimalistic makeup. If you really want to work this look, slick your hair back and let your fresh face take center stage, Lupita-style .
