Pretty packaging gets us every time, which is why we're obsessed with the latest collaboration between perfumer Frédéric Malle and Liberty. The two brands are celebrating five years of collaboration, and to mark the occasion, Malle chose 18 different Liberty prints to redress his classic scents. The artwork ranges from geometric to floral, colourful to austere and highlights the synergy between sight and smell. Each box was hand selected by Malle to match the fragrance within, like Lipstick Rose (above), which is decked out in rich, red blooms. These limited-edition boxes will look amazing on your vanity or under the Christmas tree, and you won't want to throw out the wrapping! All the scents are available at Liberty and FredericMalle.com. We'll stop gushing now and bring on the product porn.
Not only is Olivia Wilde a hot Hollywood A-lister, she also has the easy-breezy personality to match. When we met up with her this week at the Soho Trump Hotel in NYC, she was poised and relaxed (and sporting the cutest baby bump) while she answered all our burning beauty questions about antiaging, wearing eyeliner like a pro, and being a gorgeous mum-to-be. The fiancée of Jason Sudeikis was there to help promote Revlon's newest Age Defying collection, which includes a foundation, concealer, wrinkle filler, and CC cream, which will all be available soon.
Between laughing about Olivia's biggest beauty blunder (she once smeared lipstick all over her face during a premiere) and picking her brain about switching to eco products during pregnancy, we learned that Olivia really is one cool chick. Read on to see for yourself!
Turns out our favourite female celebrities aren't the only ones sporting extensions. Daniel Radcliffe appeared on The Graham Norton Show with a new 'do for his latest film role. "It's like you have to pull back a curtain to talk to me," he quipped, joking about his chin-length bob. When asked if it was his own hair, Daniel replied, "It's hair, I assume, from a dead person or someone who donated their hair." Daniel's new hair addition is for his role as Igor in Frankenstein, which stars James McAvoy in the titular role. Will he keep the hair after shooting is done? Only time will tell. We're hoping not!
It turns out that Jennifer Aniston — aka one of the biggest hairstyle icons of our day — has a few celebrity hair crushes of her own. In an interview with Parade magazine, she said, "I think Gisele [Bündchen] has exquisite hair. That's a pretty envious head of hair. I love Kate Moss. She always has great hair."
Perhaps Jennifer misses her long locks since she recently chopped off her length in favour of a chic bob Jennifer, Gisele, and Kate all have some of the best hair in Hollywood, but we want you to fess up and tell us whose mane you love the most in the poll below!
This year was a big one for colour cosmetics, especially when it came to bright makeup. Turquoise blues, hot pinks, and pastel whites were all major trends in makeup and nails in 2013, which made every beauty maven squeal with glee. And while we already know that Radiant Orchid is poised to be one of 2014's hottest colours, we can't help but hope some of the hues below make it through 2013. Keep scrolling to see some of the hottest pigment trends of the year!
White Eye MakeupSure, white may be the absence of colour, but this shade made eyes pop in 2013. It was sketched in close as eyeliner and washed across the lid as shadow, proving that this seemingly simple hue is more than versatile.
Hot Pink LipstickWe gave our red lipsticks a break this year and embraced a sexier shade: hot pink. Diane von Furstenberg showed off the hue for Autumn, and we taught you how to apply it with ease. This colour looks gorgeous in the colder months, so you can keep wearing it through the holidays!

Put down the glitter! This party season, there are far more stylish ways to show your festive spirit. These celebrity beauty looks run the gamut from soft and sophisticated to bright, bold, and beautiful, but they all have one thing in common; they'd be perfect for your next Christmas party. Whether you're a fan of false lashes and big hair, or smoky eyes and sleek locks, you'll find something to suit. These looks are striking, modern, and easy to re-create at home.
When it's time to see your friends and family this festive season, trade in your usual style for this easy-to-DIY braided style. Whether your hair is long or short, a headband plait is a fun and easy way to keep your hair out of your face but still show off your waves. We headed to DreamDry, where stylist Faith Huffnagle gave us her tips for mastering the simple look.
2013 will go down in beauty history as the year of the It haircut, and we've got plenty of them to choose from. Jennifer Lawrence recently drove the star power of the pixie up a few notches, but there were plenty of pixies before her. Jada Pinkett Smith also knows a thing or two about It haircuts, as she's recently been sporting 2013's edgy style: the undercut. But 2013's first It haircut was somewhere between edgy and sweet, and it was the lob or its sister, the clavicut. Nicole Richie was one of the first ladies to rock this style, and she's kept it all year. All three of these styles are synonymous with 2013, but which was your favorite cut of the year?
Frizz seems to be the one hair woe that affects all women regardless of hair type, mainly because it sprouts up for a number of different reasons. While some women have figured out ways of keeping their fuzz down day to day, there are times when those pesky hairs pop up regardless of what you do to avoid them. When you're stuck in a hairy situation like this, there are easy ways to disguise the pouf that seems to be taking over your head:
- Try some hair oil: Hair oils are a more natural serum when it comes to zapping frizz. Work something like Kiehl's Smoothing Hair Oil Concentrate (£16) into your hair to depuff instantly.
- Slick on some moisture: Start by sweeping some lotion onto your arms and legs. When you're done, run your fingers through your hair, avoiding the roots. The thin layer of moisturiser will smooth down your frizz. Just make sure to use a light touch or you could find yourself with a greasy situation.
- Spritz some hair spray: Spraying some directly onto your hair won't do much, so try this handy trick — mist a lightweight hair spray, like Oribe Superfine Hairspray (£17) onto the palms of both of your hands. Before it has time to dry, swipe your hands over your hair, focusing on the frizziest spots. The spray will keep the fuzz at bay without weighing it down.
- Snag a dryer sheet: If you're running out the door and don't have any product on hand, reach for a tumble dryer sheet. Smooth it over your hair for a quick way to remove your frizz. Bonus: this technique also works if you're hair is full of static, another major hair woe in the Winter.
We've been obsessing over Julianne Hough's many beauty looks for a while now, and her versatile long bob is one of our favourite things about her. But last night she was at the Boohoo.com event in LA sporting a much longer look. She captioned her new look on Instagram with a variety of hashtags, including #changeisgood and #longhairdon'tcare, and she definitely seems happy with her new lengths. Julianne's extensions seamlessly blend with her shorter layers, and we like how she styled the new length with sideswept layers, but we can't help but miss her lob. What do you think of Julianne with long hair?
