Katie Holmes Is On A Mission To Expand Her Beauty Empire!

Published May 7, 2014 by gossipzoo

Katie Holmes has really taken to her developing beauty career!

After becoming the face of Bobbi Brown makeup last year, she’s been quietly working on a Bobbie & Katie Collection that’s set to be released in September.

The B&K line includes a $65 brush set as well as $68 palette that comes with eight eye shadows, two Pot Rouges and one mini eye pencil.

And she’s not stopping there! Starting in September, Katie’s going back into the lab with Bobbi to create a skin care line and maybe at some point concoct a fragrance.

The co-owner and spokesmodel of Alterna hair care revealed:

“I’m interested [in doing a fragrance]. We all need a little help in smelling good, especially in the summer in New York City! I’m open [to more roles in beauty]. I’ve had wonderful experiences with both Bobbi Brown and Alterna, and it’s nice to be a part of companies that have such integrity. I send [Bobbi] crazy ideas, and we just keep going…and we’ll see what happens next.”

Ah, yet another celebrity scent to add to our lengthy list! We’ll support that!

Maybe Suri Cruise can hop aboard the beauty train and release a kid scent to get a leg up on the game, LOLz!

Get Angelina Jolie’s Magic Maleficent Look! MAC & Disney Team Up For New Collection!

Published December 8, 2013 by gossipzoo

Muahahahaha YESS!!

We are as excited as can be for the Maleficent movie, and now for all you makeup lovers, there’s even more to look forward to!

Disney and MAC are teaming up to release a line of makeup inspired by Angelina Jolie‘s portrayal of the famed villainess, and it will mark the first time that the cosmetics company has created a collection based on a movie.

The line will feature 11 pieces, including eye makeup, nail polish, lipstick and lip gloss, and face makeup (although they’ll totally skip the green foundation)! LOLz!

We’re imagining a lot of sparkly and dark purple eye shadows and some glossy, bright lipsticks. Some black nail lacquer would hit the spot as well!

The line comes out in spring of next year just in time for the film’s release on March 14!

Published August 24, 2013 by gossipzoo

Without a doubt, Natalie Portman has one of the most arrestingly beautiful faces of all time, and it makes perfect sense that a major beauty brand would want that face to promote its products!

In addition to employing the actress as the face of Miss Dior Cherie and Diorskin Forever, Christian Dior has now hired her to rep their Rouge Dior lipstick.

She should be in all their makeup campaigns!

The ad (above) basically consists of Natalie holding up a tube of Rouge Dior and giving the most gorgeous death glare EVER. Swoon!

Doesn’t she make you wanna run out and buy it???

Rihanna Is The New MAC Girl! Tweets Pic Of Her Makeup Line!

Published June 15, 2013 by gossipzoo

Whoa, this took us COMPLETELY by surprise!

Here we were almost convinced Miley Cyrus was going to be the next MAC girl when Rihanna comes out of nowhere and totally steals Mileybird’s thunder!!!

The birthday girl tweeted a pic (above) of her collaboration with MAC featuring a set of makeup goodies, including eye shadow, lipstick, and lip gloss, with the caption:

That’s right baby, I’m a #MACgal now! Get into it, package designed and products created from scratch by yours truly! Thanks to the EPIC team at #MAC for giving me the opportunity to play and share my favorite shit with my fans and yours

When did she even find the time to do this between her new album, on-again/off-again Chris Brown romance, AND her recent River Island collection and runway show???

DAYUM!!! She’s srsly taking over the world!

The best part is that this is the first time that MAC is actually collaborating with a celeb for more than just a one-time project, like the Viva Glam collabs. RiRi is going to be an actual “creative partner” and will roll out four collections, called RiRi [Hearts] MAC, with the label throughout this year.

The 25-year-old said:

“When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind – for something legit – is MAC. Whatever color you want, it’s like ‘Let’s go to MAC.’ I’ve been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was a natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand.”

RiRi Woo, a red lipstick inspired by Rihanna’s fave Ruby Woo, will be the first product to launch at the same time as Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour kicks off on May 4 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

A pop-up shop showcasing the products will also be set up at the same time.

The four collections will include a powder blush duo and Lustre Drops shade in the summer, multishade eye shadow palettes and false eyelashes in the fall, and 10 new items, such as nail polish and a makeup bag, released just in time for the holidays.

The fall and holiday campaigns have already been shot by Mert & Marcus, and since we can never get enough Rihanna, we are just shaking with anticipation to see the pics.

They’re obvi gonna be BEYOND HOT!

Go ahead, girl! And happy birthday!!!

12 Fall Beauty Trends You’ll Want To Wear Now

Published June 3, 2013 by gossipzoo

Bold Pouts

The one bad thing about fashion week? It’s a total tease! It will be months before Marc Jacobs’ cozy-chic coats, Tibi’s structured sweatshirts, or Prabal Gurung’s military-inspired peplum jacket hits stores.

But the good news is, just about every beauty look we saw at New York Fashion Week can be had right now. That’s the beauty of beauty-instant gratification.

And this season’s instant gratification comes by way of old-school rebellion.

Punk Hair

Punk Hair

Punk was a major inspiration for both hair and nails. It looked like dozens of Joan Jetts walking the runway at Marc Jacobs, where the ‘dos were short and spikey (and sometimes quite mullet-like). At VPL, the hair was equally edgy. Stylist Bob Recine worked with Phyto and T3 tools to create a look that was slicked back on one side and stick straight on the other. Faux Mohawk, meet your match. It appears we now have the faux skater-partially-shaven-head.

Punk Nails

Punk Nails

What would a punk haircut be with out a manicure to match? Fortunately Deborah Lippmann showed up at the Lela Rose show with a new polish called “I Wanna Be Sedated,” which comes out this July. It’s a rebellious mustard yellow with a texture that’s, quite appropriately, a bit rough. Other colors in Lippmann’s Punk Rock Collection include “Pretty Vacant” and “I Fought the Law.” Kate Spade also countered her feminine styles with edgy nail art, embellishing long, neon and black nails with gold studs.

Not about to get punk’d? The runways also offered plenty of prettier, more wearable trends.

Chocolate Lips

Chocolate Lips

Oxblood lips returned to the runways, but with a richer tint for Fall 2013. Shows like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Dannijo featured a burgundy pout with brown undertones that gave off a romantic vibe.

Ombr   Buns

Ombr Buns

We know, we know, enough with the ombre! But this time it doesn’t involve hair dye at all. At the Dannijo show, celeb stylist Johnny Stuntz used LUXHAIR WOW Pony Fall extensions (you can get them on to add a lil’ something extra to the models’ natural hair. To recreate the look, don’t worry about matching your color exactly (that’s where the ombr comes in) and pin a hairpiece into your ponytail. Then twist all the hair into a bun, as you normally would and spritz with hairspray (Johnny used L’Oreal Paris Elnett Strong-Hold hairspray). We kind of like the idea of swirling in two slightly different colors of extensions — maybe a blond and a reddish shade — for an even more obvious ombr effect.

Smooth Ponytails

Low Ponytails

We’re also seeing a lot of ponytails in the coming months, which is always good news for those of us who like to get up and go. Slicked back and gathered at the nape, low ponytails have been a force in the last few weeks. Not only did they make waves at the Alexander Wang and Trina Turk shows, but Beyonce also wore one to the Grammys.

The New French Mani

Twisted French Manicures

For nails, the French manicure gets a new incarnation. Reverse Frenchies (or half-moon manis) returned to the runways in edgier hues, but we also saw a whole new twist on the classic two-tone design. This new version of the French has a border on the top and the side for a look that’s totally mod. The French manicure’s distant cousin emerged at the VPL show, where Deborah Lippmann used “Modern Love” as a base color and then painted a thin border on the top of the nail and the inside edge with “Stormy Weather.”

Bright Eyeshadow

Bright Eyeshadow

Punk isn’t the only part of the ’80s making a comeback this fall. Bright blue, orange, green, and red eyeshadow and liner turned up all over the runways at shows like Jason Wu, Rebecca Minkoff and Thakoon. Line the lid with a cobalt hue for a more wearable take on the trend, and dust along the bottom lashes as well for a modern twist.

Cat Eyes

Cat Eyes

The cat eye continues its reign, but for Fall 2013, the eyeliner trick is bolder and more pronounced. Makeup artists at Monique Lhuillier and Anna Sui shaded in thicker lines, while Jason Wu, Mara Hoffman and Emerson focused on the cat eye’s signature winged tip, with a more exaggerated line.

Bold Pouts

Red Lips

Red lips aren’t going anywhere. The classic lip shade brightened up too many runways to count, adding a chic finish to an array of looks, from grungy to preppy, minimalistic to opulent. To update the look, take a cue from Oscar de la Renta and J.Crew’s models and add a glossy finish to your bright red pout.

Squiggly Nail Designs

Abstract Nail Art

Nails continue to be one of the runways’ main accessories, but the nail art this season is more artsy and abstract. Some of our favorite nail designs came from queen of cool Rebecca Minkoff, who offered fun but modern manis decorated wtih squiggly lines.


Pretty Faces

We welcomed the return of pretty, natural makeup this season. While we love the bold, boundary-pushing looks from season’s past, it’s always nice to see a few beauty trends that will easily translate from the runways to real life. The trick to pulling this look off is in creating a flawless complexion using a tinted moisturizer or light foundation that lets your skin breath. From there, it’s all about the blush to highlight your cheekbones.


Intricate Braids

Braids are also back (notice a lot of trends from spring are here to stay?). The update for Fall 2013? They’re getting more intricate and less perfect. Rodarte and Alice + Olivia both showcased more elaborate braided designs that had a slightly undone feel for a cool update to the middle school look. We also saw braids popping up in unexpected places like the back of a voluminous updo at Caroline Herrera.
