Get The Look: Jennifer Lawrence's Minimal Makeup
Last week, Jennifer Lawrence made a bold move and showed that less is really more by going bare-faced to the premiere of The Great Gatsby in New York.
The minimal to no-makeup look is a change for Lawrence, who usually opts for smokey eyes and pink lips when hitting the red carpet. But at only 22 years old, why shouldn't Lawrence show off her youthful and flawless complexion?
I spoke to makeup artist Allana Mizra on how to get the look and let your natural beauty shine:

Beauty Look We Love: Comrags Fall 2013
Though beauty on the runway can often be a little bit too crazy for everday, we were pleasantly surprised to see that the Comrags beauty look was something that could be worn in real-life and easily recreated at home.
"At a lot of shows, the makeup doesn't look too wearable," said Greg Wencel, celebrity makeup artist and CoverGirl makeup pro who created the look. "When we met with [Comrags designers] Judish Corish and Joyce Gunhouse, they wanted to make sure that it was something that made a statement, but something that someone wouldn't be afraid to actually try."
Wencel's inspiration? A youthful, look reminiscent of a Parisian girl or models backstage sipping wine.
"The Comrags girl has something healthy and organic about her. It's a polished look, that's super pretty and very wearable," he explained.
Wencel gave us a rundown on how to recreate the look at home, using CoverGirl cosmetics:

The Only Eye Shadow Palette You Need This Fall
Makeup is in the process of undergoing a major shift. From bright washes of popping colour and bold lips over the past few seasons, this fall - and moving into next spring - the application and palette is much more subdued.
For the most part, we're seeing a "no makeup" makeup look with sheer, luminous skin as the main attraction. Lips, too, are looking rather nude, although red continues to tread lightly, while eyes are experiencing hits of graphic liner, but mostly a light dusting of tawny browns.

Female Athletes Embrace Makeup
Female athletes - tennis players in particular - are learning to embrace their girly sides on the courts. According to ESPN, the number of players wearing makeup at play has greatly increased over the years, currently reaching an all-time high.
The fashion loving-Williams sisters likely have a lot to do with this new trend and their opponent Maria Sharapova took occasion to give them (well, Serena in particular) a little dig while speaking to the Sports channel. They reported a smirk on her face while she stated,"I don't wear makeup on court." But Serena isn't the only dark-eyed player out there—Jelena Jankovic, Tamira Laszek, and Sabine Lisicki have also been spotted wearing eyeliner and mascara.

How To Wear Tangerine Makeup
What better way to celebrate Tangerine Tango, Pantone's colour of the year, than by incorporating the rich citrus shade into your beauty regime?
