In just a few short years Anna Kendrick has skyrocketed from “that girl in Twilight” to big-screen leading lady and high-fashion favorite — she sat front row for Carolina Herrera, Jenny Packham, and Marchesa this year at her first New York Fashion Week! NBD. What’s great about Anna is the way she’s handled her rise to stardom — with enviable quirkiness and humility. But enough about her personality, let’s talk beauty.
Anna arrived at the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California vibrant and fresh-faced, with her long brown hair parted in the center and pulled into a romantic side pony. The pale pink lipstick she’s wearing brings a touch of color to her milky complexion (we recommend Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick in Retsina), and we’re loving the hint of ombre in her textured ‘do. We’ll teach you how to re-create Anna’s sexy, sideswept ponytail here!

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!

New York Fashion Week (aka the craziest busiest week in many makeup artists’ and hairstylists’ lives) kicked off today. Before Sonia Kashuk was Sonia Kashuk, Deborah Lippmann was Deborah Lippmann and Oribe was Oribe, they too were in the trenches of Fashion Week–look close and you may still catch them there. With all of that experience we couldn’t help but wonder if some of the products they’ve since created were inspired by the Fashion Weeks of their past–what to use to look your best in the quickest amount of time.
Oribe Dry Texturizing Purse Spray ($19.50) stretches out an old blowout by adding texture and a delish scent.
Sonia Kashuk Brightening Powder ($9.99) helps you fake a good night’s sleep by minimizing the appearance of dark circles.
Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Fashion ($16) is a unique taupe that makes chips not so noticeable.
