Get the Look: Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale stars as the edgy Aria on Pretty Little Liars, has a growing country music career, and has phenomenal style that I totally want to steal. As a pint-sized beauty Lucy rocks some seriously cute outfits, on screen and off, but it’s her beauty looks that really blow me away. She always seems to have the hottest lipstick shade and her brows are so bold.

Whether it’s the hot pink blush and lips she rocked at the 2014 Billboard Music awards, shown above, or her signature lucious lashes, Lucy Hale always looks great. She plays up some pretty bold features like her brows, lips, or lashes, but she never seems overdone. Instead of the usual advice to focus on one feature at a time, Lucy shows us how to create a total bombshell look.

Get The Look: Rachel Bilson on Hart of Dixie

I just started binge-watching another show on Netflix and all I can focus on is the main character’s makeup. The show is Hart of Dixie, starring the adorable Rachel Bilson. Not only is she a total style icon (hello, dressy shorts!) but her makeup looks always make me want to press pause and whip out my eyeliner.

Rachel Bilson has brown hair and brown eyes, just like me, and I think that’s why I relate to her looks so much. I feel like I can actually try them myself. Jamie King, the other female lead in Hart of Dixie, is a blonde, blue-eyed beauty, and as much as I love her Southern belle looks, I know they would look much different on me.

After watching a few episodes (okay.. binge-watching season one in a few days) I have come to love the makeup looks Zoe Hart rocks. Even in a small town she has her eyeliner game on point and always has a great neutral lipstick. In addition to some great pictures of Dr. Zoe Hart, I’ve also complied a few products to help get the adorable, sassy, doe-eyed look that Rachel Bilson rocks on the show.

To get her heavily lined eye look I would recommend a smooth gel-like liner that is easy to blend and smudge. A great option for this is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner. This creamy liner is a breeze to apply and can be blended for a smooth, smoky look.

For full lashes like Dr. Zoe Hart, try the Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara. The curved brush gets every lash and the falsies-inspired formula offers lots of volume and length.

Dr. Zoe Hart always has glowing skin and you can get the same rosy glow and a subtle bronzing with one just product, Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake. This golden-hued blush is a great way to add a slight highlight to cheekbones without going for a super-girly pink shade.

To get the neutral lip looks that Rachel rocks try one of the CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balms. These sheer gloss balms come in 16 pretty shades so you can find the perfect one for your everyday look. You can check out my review of them here for more information.

So there you have it. An easy how-to to get the adorable look that Dr. Zoe Hart, a.k.a. style icon Rachel Bilson, wears on Hart of Dixie. Now I’m only on season one so far so don’t tell me any spoilers but let me know if you watch this show too! 

Best Look at the 2014 ACM Awards: Taylor Swift

Last night was the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards and as usual the red carpet was packed with pretty looks that are totally inspiring for Spring. Some of the hottest stars in country music rocked the red carpet and blew it our of the water with their chosen beauty and fashion looks, but one star totally stole the show in my eyes.

Taylor Swift killed it in her black and white crop top and maxi skirt, and her hair and makeup was just as fierce.

Not only is her outfit beyond stunning (hello Angeline leg slit), but have you seen those soft curls, strappy stilettos, and smokey eyes? Taylor absolutely rocked it on the red carpet and I cannot get enough of this look. Head to toe she really pulled it off and I am totally in love with this look.

Let’s take a closer look at her hair and makeup. The lip colour is super pretty and just bold enough to be noticed but not too much that it overpowers her pretty eye makeup. Taylor stuck with her signature cat-eye shape but switched it up a bit with the navy colour.

Now I need to find this lipstick colour, learnt o curl my hair like Taylor’s, and invest in a maxi skirt. Her whole look is the perfect combination of sweet, sassy, and a little bit sexy. Top to bottom I love this look and it was my favourite one from last night’s 49th Annual ACM Awards.

What was your favourite look last night?

Angelina Jolie at the 2014 Academy Awards

Best Beauty Looks From The 2014 Oscars

Last night was the 86th annual Academy Awards and as usual the red carpet was full off fantastic gowns an gorgeous makeup looks on all the hottest celebrities. With every red carpet there are hits and misses, but at the Oscars this year I found a lot of great looks. Here are some of the best beauty looks from last night.

Kerry Washington at the 2014 Academy Awards

Kerry Washington. Kerry looked every bit the glowing mom-to-be with her beautiful soft waves and deep red lipstick. Her look was very fresh and light since the lipstick was the main focus and her eye makeup was subdued. Kerry’s look was simple and sophisticated.

Lupita Nyongo at the 2014 Academy Awards

Luptia Nyong’o. How could you miss this one? Lupita looked phenomenal in her light blue dress and matching headband, but to top off an already amazing look she had the prettiest rose lipstick on as well. Luptia continues to wow me whenever she walks a red carpet.

Angelina Jolie at the 2014 Academy Awards

Angelina Jolie. This eye makeup is to die for and her nude lipgloss pulls the whole look together flawlessly. I’m not normally a huge fan of Angelina but this beauty look knocked it right out of the park for me. Stunning and sexy.

Margot Robbie at the 2014 Academy Awards

Margot Robbie. Hello gorgeous! Her dark hair is insanely stunning and that lipstick is so fierce. She rocked this red carpet and absolutely floored me when I first saw this look. Major beauty inspiration right here.

I really loved all of these looks but I think I have to give my top spot to Margot Robbie. She killed it on the red carpet last night and I have a strong urge to dye my hair super dark and start wearing lavender lipstick.

Amy Adams looks every inch the sophisticated and sexy actress she is with this chic bun and plum lipstick. Can you say stunning? I am dying to go find that exact lip colour and wear it for the rest of the week. It makes her baby blue eyes pop and really compliments her pale skin. I love the lip colour on its own but the extra glossy finish makes it just that much more impressive.

Stop Whatever You’re Doing Right Now And Look At Sarah Hyland

This girl is seriously stunning. I mentioned this a while ago when I wrote about Grammy beauty looks, and I said that she is one of my favourite celebrities to watch on red carpets. I think I have a serious girl crush on Sarah. I love her style and think she is just the sweetest actress out there. And hello – look at this photo!

First of all let’s talk about the hair. Why have I never thought of doing this to my hair? Swept to the side with lots of volume and secured in a super low ponytail. This looks so effortless and so good!

Now pair that with her hop pink lip colour and the white eyeliner on the inner waterline and you have a perfect everyday look. Sarah really is one of my favourite actresses to watch and now I think she just became my beauty muse too. Can I please be her for a day?

Do you feel my Sarah obsession? Leave a comment and let me know what you think of her awesome hairstyle and pretty makeup!

Best Beauty: Grammy Awards 2014

Last night was a big night for the music world – the 2014 Grammy Awards! As with every  red carpet and award show there are beauty blunders and beauty bombshells. A lot of stars looked stunning on the red carpet but some beauties really stood out. Today I want to show you some of my favourite looks seen on celebrities last night.

Sarah Hyland looked all grown up with her pretty updo and her red lips. Her cheeks were the perfect flushed shade and this is definitely a go-to look for any important events I have coming up. She is one of my favourite new celebrities and I always look out for her on red carpets. This girl has a great style and I’m constantly turning to her for beauty inspiration.

Kelly Osbourne at the 2014 Grammy Awards

Kelly Osbourne rocked some awesome lilac hair and a beautiful deep fuchsia lip colour. This might be one of my favourite looks I have ever seen on her, and I keep going back to stare at it. Those spider lashes are stunning and I love how out there her whole look is. It’s super trendy but still seems like something that can actually be pulled off.

Miranda Lambert at the 2014 Grammy Awards

Miranda Lambert was glowing last night with her dewy skin and red lips. She looked like a gorgeous country princess and I love how simple yet stunning this look is. Her skin looks so warm and her blue eyes are totally popping with her red lips and dress.

Rita Ora at the 2014 Grammy Awards

Rita Ora was rocking some dramatic purple eye shadow and a seriously nude lip. She looked edgy and super trendy. Her eyes were super intense and I really love seeing coloured shadow used in this bold way.

A few beauty trends I noticed from the red carpet included light lipsticks and a lot of purple. Not only in eye makeup but Kelly Osbourne’s hair had the hue too. I really like purple makeup so I think that will be the trend I try this season.

Do you agree with these looks as beauty bests, or is there someone who I missed that you think should be on the list?
