Kate Bosworth goes retro, Olivia Wilde color coordinates her makeup, and Carey Mulligan plays with bright lipstick. Here, the red-carpet beauty looks we loved this week.
Olivia Wilde at the opening night of Finding Neverland on Broadway: The actress expertly infused a bit of color into her white Marchesa gown by matching her eye shadow to the dress's deep purple floral embellishments. Just a line of purple metallic shadow on her upper lids did the trick — and also worked wonders to bring out her green eyes. She kept the rest of her hair and makeup simple with a high ponytail, bronzed cheeks and nude lips — because purple eye makeup pretty much speaks for itself, no?
Kate Bosworth at the launch of Lilly Pulitzer for Target: To complement her Lilly Pulitzer shift dress, Kate Bosworth drew beauty inspiration from 1960s icon Jean Shrimpton, wearing her hair in a simple, polished bob that was ever so subtly teased in the back. Pink cheeks and lips plus a touch of black liquid eyeliner created the perfect modern interpretation of that classic retro look — a great option for city-hall brides and those getting married in laid-back, outdoor ceremonies.
Carey Mulligan at the world premiere of Far From the Madding Crowd: How do to effortless black-tie beauty? Two words: Carey Mulligan. The actress paired a sequined gown with a windblown updo, classic eye makeup, and a pop of bright berry lipstick — creating the perfect balance between polished and natural. (We confess we might be biased with this one, because we always love an undone hairstyle with a major evening gown. But it's just. So. Chic.)
