Emmy Rossum rocks a statement lip, Gwyneth Paltrow has the beach blonde look down pat, and Keira Knightley is the epitome of a glowing, shiny-haired bride. Here, the red carpet beauty looks we loved this week.
Emmy Rossum at the Los Angeles Premiere of You're Not You: Want to venture beyond the classic red lip for your big day? Try Rossum's black-tie hair and makeup with a twist: magenta lips. (We also love this bold color juxtaposed with her jaw-dropping purple chandelier earrings — a great way to infuse color into an otherwise all-white ensemble.) Brown, smoky eye makeup intensify her eyes, and glossy, side-swept waves make her ready to walk down the aisle, er, red carpet.
Gwyneth Paltrow at the Hollywood Costume Luncheon: Planning a laid back, destination wedding? Take a tip from Paltrow and go for sleek, easy locks, bronzer, and light pink lipstick. (She even shows us what it will look like with a white dress!) A quick tip? Use a frizz-fighting serum on damp locks to ensure your hair doesn't curl up halfway through the ceremony.
Keira Knightley at the London Film Festival: It's not hard to tell that Knightley's warm, luminous makeup was inspired by her gold Valentino Haute Couture gown. (Side note: That's exactly how you should create your big-day look, too! Start with your wedding dress and then find hair and makeup ideas that work with it.) Knightley's thick, Audrey Hepburn-like eyebrows are played up to frame her face, and gold eye shadow applied from her upper lids to her inner corners create a bright, wide-eyed effect. Blush concentrated on her cheekbones gives her complexion a burst of warmth, and rose-tinged lips perfect her pout. Oh, and if you look closely, you can see a few strategically placed golden highlights in her hair, which add depth to her voluminous waves. Perfection.
