Get the Look: Emma Stone’s Navy Eyeliner

Instyle Daily Beauty Tip: Navy Eyeliner

At the 17th Annual Critics Choice Awards in Los Angeles, Emma Stone’s shimmery blue eyeliner, courtesy of makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, caught our attention. “Navy-lined eyes are an easy way to baby step into the world of color,” Goodwin told us. “I used a metallic blue for a more glamorous effect.” In the same way a chambray shirt and a pair of jeans will work with almost anything, blue eyeliner can be an unexpected neutral in your makeup bag. Goodwin notes that keeping the rest of your makeup low-key will prevent the pop of color from feeling dated.


I have been hooked on the blue eyeliner look, I opted for a bit brighter shade of blue with Stila’s Bora Bora. Its a beautiful tropical blue color. On top of being a absolutely beautiful color it stays put once it sets it has to be one of my longest wearing eyeliners.

InStyle: Does Universal Blush really work?

Universal Blush?

THE CLAIM This bright pink cheek color is the first powder blush that adjusts to your skin tone, taking the guesswork out of picking the perfect shade.

THE EXPERT SAYS “In fact, it isn’t actually self-adjusting, but the color is just translucent enough to blend in with any skin tone,” says Ni’kita Wilson. “The shade is bright, but the base that’s used is not titanium dioxide, so there’s no chalkiness.”

OUR VERDICT We tested the blush on five people (with complexions ranging from milky white to deep mocha), and amazingly, it gave a flattering, blushing-from-within glow to everyone. The color was bright enough to show up on very dark skin yet sheer enough that it didn’t look clownish on pale complexions.

I would have never thought with my pale complexion I could wear such bright colors.  Then I was sent a sample to review of the L’Occitane Pivoine Flora in Creamy Rose. The blush is the most gorgeous creamy bright rose shade and gives my cheeks the perfect color without every overpowering my skin. The pallette has a light pink shade to see as a highlighter.
