Get The Look: Rashida Jones and Beth Behrs.

“I Love You, Man” actress Rashida Jones and “Two Broke Girls” actress Beth Behrs made their marks at recent events: Rashida at the “Celeste and Jesse Forever” premiere last week in New York City and Beth at the recent Showtime TCA party. Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg shared her tricks for creating both of these gorgeous looks!

 

Rashida Jones

Face & Cheeks:
“I started by buffing mark Min-A-Real Cream-to-Powder Foundation in Medium Dark onto Rashida’s face. Next, I dabbed mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Peachy all over, followed by mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Medium Dark to reduce shine. Then, I applied mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Cameo Glo to her cheeks and mark Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette all over her cheeks and cheek bones to create a gorgeous shimmer. I set the look by lightly dusting her face with mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Bronze.”

Eyes:
“I started by applying mark Mini Mark It Stick Hook up Stick for Eyes in Cocoa Bean onto Rashida’s lid, followed by the darker shades of mark On the Dot Neutral Eye Color Compact on her lids and the lighter shades into the crease. Next, I applied mark What A Line Felt Tip Eyeliner in Wee Hours and then Brownie Points on her upper lash lines, creating a cat-eye effect. I lightly lined her lower lash lines with mark Mini Mark It Stick Hook up Stick for Eyes in Cocoa Bean along with mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Foxy Brown. I finished Rashida’s eyes by applying mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black to her top and bottom lashes, concentrating on the upper outside lashes.”

Lips:
“I used mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Coral Fixation on Rashida’s lips.”

Beth Behrs

Face & Cheeks:
“I started by applying mark Get A Tint Tinted Moisturizer Lotion SPF 15 in Ivory Nude all over Beth’s face to create an even canvas. Next, I applied mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Pro Golden for a soft, healthy glow. Then, I combined a tiny bit of mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Berry and Spicy and applied lightly to her cheeks. I dabbed the tops of Beth’s cheeks with mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Chica and patted down her T-zone with mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Medium to get rid of any shine.”

Eyes:
“I started by applying mark Please Hold Eye Primer to create a strong canvas. Next, I dusted various light shades from mark On the Dot Neutral Eye Color Compact all over her lids. Then, I applied mark Mini Mark It Stick Hook up Stick for Eyes on her lower lash lines dabbed with the same light shades from mark On the Dot Neutral Eye Color Compact. I created a gorgeous cat-eye effect using mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Entourage and finished Beth’s eyes by applying mark Scanda-Lash Hook up Mascara in Blacklash onto her top and bottom lashes.”

Lips:
“I applied mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Cha Cha to Beth’s lips to create a stand-out smile.”

Claire Danes Covers 2012 British GQ.

Homeland star Claire Danes covers the September 2012 issue of British GQ magazine.

Danes wore a Ralph Lauren Black Label halter maxi dress for the cover shot and in its pages, the 33-year-old actress talked about how she turned down the lead role in Titanic, shares more about her Homeland character and being away from her husband while filming in North Carolina:

On her admiration for Carrie Mathison, whom her ‘Homeland’ character is based upon:
“She’s like my kinky superhero alter ego now. Because as disturbed and troubled as she is, she’s always f—ing right. Which is so nice because I so rarely am.”

On turning down the lead role in the blockbuster movie ‘Titanic’:
“I had just made a romantic epic with Leonardo [DiCaprio] – it just seemed redundant to me. The problem is that I always took myself too seriously. Now I realize I should have lightened up. I was a serious kid to an absurd degree. I was overwhelmed with responsibility, trying to play grown up. I overdid it.”

On being away from husband Hugh Dancy while filming ‘Homeland’ in North Carolina:
“It sucks. Seven years, it’s a long-a– time. But every year I’m going to have something really compelling to do.”

Gabby Douglas Confused Over Hair Debate.

 

Gabby Douglas should be enjoying the rewards of her hard work and winning two Olympic Gold Medals in London. But instead the 16yr old is puzzled at the Twitter debate over her choice of hairstyle.

The 16-year-old said Sunday she was a little confused when she logged onto her computer after winning her second gold medal in three days and discovered people were debating her pulled-back look.

 

 

“I don’t know where this is coming from. What’s wrong with my hair?” said Douglas, the first U.S. gymnast to win gold in team and all-around competition. “I’m like, `I just made history and people are focused on my hair?’ It can be bald or short, it doesn’t matter about (my) hair.”

Douglas uses gel, clips and a ponytail holder to keep things in place while she competes, a style she’s worn for years.

“Nothing is going to change,” she said. “I’m going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it.”

The bubbly teenager is the first African-American gymnast to win her sport’s biggest prize. She had no idea she was lighting up social media until she Googled herself hours after winning her gold medal.

“I don’t think people should be worried about that,” she said. “We’re all champions and we’re all winners. I just say that it’s kind of, a stupid and crazy thought to think about my hair.”

I think the whole debate is ridiculous and demeaning to a talented, young athlete. She is a beautiful, well spoken young girl and I think her hairstyle is cute and appropriate for her sport.

What do you think? Much ado about nothing or should she spruce up her look?
