Get Angelina Jolie’s Red Carpet Look!


Celebrity makeup artist Mary Burton created the glamorous look for Angelina Jolie at the Cannes Film Festival and we’ve got the inside scoop on what she used. To define Angelina’s lashes Mary used two different mascaras, Lancôme Hypnôse in Black and Lancôme Ôscillation in Black and applied a few coats of both to add volume and length. Mary used Lancôme Color Design Lipstick in Candy Apple to create her voluptuous red pout.

Angelina looked stunning (in Versace) as she walked the red carpet for the premiere of Brad Pitt’s new movie Inglourious Basterds directed by Quentin Tarantino.

All Lancôme products are available at

Will Ferrell lends his name & face to sell sunscreen in the name of a charity!


Will Ferrell is selling sunscreen to help raise money for Cancer For College, a foundation which gives scholarships to cancer patients, by coming out with a line of sunscreens.

The SPF 30 lotions are available in Sexy Hot Tan, Sunstroke and Forbidden Fruit and each bottle features Ferrell in a series of silly poses.

Cancer for College founder Craig Pollard, a two-time cancer survivor and former fraternity brother of Ferrell’s at USC says:

“We have been so incredibly fortunate to have had Will Ferrell’s support through the years. Creating this line of sunscreen products allows us the ability to use Will’s image to promote the mission of our charity, raise some valuable funds to help send cancer survivors to college and increase cancer awareness.”

Of the new line Ferrell says:

“The bottle says it all. I’ve always dreamed of owning a lotion company. Honestly, I’m proud to be associated with such a great charity. I’ve watched Craig and Cancer for College help hundreds of cancer survivors realize their dream of a college education. The stories are so inspirational. I’m just happy to help any way I can.”

You can purchase the sunscreen online through the charity’s website at and at select retail outlets this summer.


Hot Beauty Trend: Ponytails!


Instead of a formal updo, stars pony up on the red carpet in this simple yet sleek hairstyle.

The high ponytail has a lot of pull these days as stars like Angelina Jolie and Kate Bosworth transform the casual do into an elegant evening look.  The style is “sexy and fresh at the same time,” says Jeffrey Paul, who created Freida Pinto’s pretty pony recently for a Los Angeles event. To keep the look clean, hair should be “polished but not greasy,” says Paul. “Use little product to avoid an oily finish.”

How to style:

  1. Blow dry the hair in a backward motion with a medium-barrel boardbristle brush.
  2. Add a dab of smoothing cream or pomade and sweep hair into a high ponytail close to the crown of the head, using an elastic ponytail holder.
  3. For a finished look take a small section of hair, wrap around the band and secure with bobby pins.
