Get The Look: Blake Lively’s Perfect Red Lips

 

I absolutely adored this dress and retro look on Blake Lively at her Savages premiere. Instyle Magazine has tracked down the exact colors to get this perfect retro red. Now I just need the dress, hair and body!

 

Found It! Blake Lively’s Sexy Red Lipstick

Nothing ties a retro look together like a true red lipstick and a flick of liquid liner. Case in point: Blake Lively’s Old Hollywood-inspired getup. “Blake wanted a classic matte red lip,” said her makeup artist Elaine Offers. “We went with the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Dragon Girl and Red Square.” These jumbo lip crayons take the guesswork out of choosing a matching liner, and the velvety formula keeps your pucker from feeling parched. Added bonus: We love how Red Square, an orange-based scarlet, adds a touch of warmth to the blue-based Dragon Girl.

NARS & Marc Jacobs team up for an awesome collaboration!!

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs - and makeup genius François Nars have teamed up in a beautiful way! In a friendship that has lasted several years, the two are collaborating in an amazing way!

First Marc called upon François to helm the makeup backstage at his fall 2009 show (and he has been doing so ever since); then François persuaded Marc to sit in front of his lens, and pose (fully made-up) for his book, 15X15. Now the twosome is getting together once again for a new collaboration: cool—and clever—boxed sets of fingerless cashmere Marc Jacobs gloves and NARS nail lacquers.

Available in black cashmere with black-gold polish or purple cashmere with smoky lavender polish, the sets marry a major accessories trend—fingerless gloves not only make texting easier but they carry the same cool factor as a pair of open-toed boots—with one of the season’s best beauty looks. Of the polishes, which Nars mixed exclusively for this project, he says, “they don’t match the gloves, but complement them.” Everyone can appreciate that.

Marc Jacobs Fingerless Glove and NARS nail polish sets, $52; available exclusively at Nars 413 Bleecker Street, New York, 646.459.2323.

I love it!

NARS releases a Holiday Edition Bento Box!

François Nars’s makeup can be described as dramatic, but his limited-edition Bento Box lipstick set takes the concept literally. Inspired by a porcelain pot of lip stain used for kabuki actors that Nars found in Japan 10 years ago, the set of two cups of hand-poured color comes in a handsome wooden box with a wisteria-handled lip brush. “I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of kabuki makeup,” Nars says. “It’s about symbolism and using color to create drama.” The lipstick application is as seductive as its presentation. “You dip the brush into the cup, around the perimeter, to pick up product, and simply paint,” he says. “It’s a beautiful process.” Unless you want to look like a Japanese theater character, however, Nars recommends using a little restraint: “It’s highly pigmented, so I suggest starting out light and building for desired intensity. It seems intimidating, but the texture is creamy and light and will move easily.” The set will be available for $125 beginning November 1 at Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York, or go to narscosmetics.com/bento to pre-order.
