Is Red Lipstick Still In? What the Latest Sales Numbers Say About Beauty Trends

Last year, we were apparently buying up makeup and prestige skin care—oh, and red lipstick is no longer king, according to the year-end numbers released by the NPD Group. Read on for the details.

red-lipstick-sales-beauty-trends-prestige-skin-care

The company released a statement with these stats: The U.S. prestige beauty industry reached $11.2 billion and grew 3 percent in dollar sales in 2014, compared with 2013. Makeup was up 6 percent, fragrance dollars were up 2 percent and skin care increased by 1 percent. Another interesting finding: The prestige market outpaced the mass numbers (which remained steady), despite the fact that prestige prices are up—makeup, skin care, and fragrance grew 2 to 4 percent.

Overall, the company says the growth was driven around increasing interesting in organic brands with a natural, clinical, or alternative slant in the fragrance and skin care categories. And the makeup growth? Mostly thanks to our obsession with lipstick—specifically pink lipstick, which surpassed red as the leading color.

The takeaway, according to Karen Grant, global beauty-industry analyst for the NPD Group: “Beauty today is all about the base. Understanding how the consumer base has changed in population and lifestyle. Each category reflects this dynamic. Before consumers apply their makeup, they want a soft, unblemished, anti-aging face. They want to feel confident about their ‘I woke up like this’ look, and are being proactive rather than reactive about their beauty choices. There continues to be growing popularity in products that are more organic and offer advanced benefits, from natural, clinical, and alternative brands to artisanal scents. While consumers look at craftsmanship and point of difference, they continue to seek instant gratification, from facial masks and bronzers that offer radiance, to bold lips and a mood-boosting scent.”

Interesting, no? Have you noticed a difference in what you've been seeking out in the last year? Have you invested more in your skin care? And are you wearing pink lipstick more often than red? Discuss.

Mila Kunis Got a Bob Haircut?!

Fans of Mila Kunis' hair, I'm about to take you on a roller-coaster ride. Last night I spotted this photograph on hairstylist Mara Roszak's Instagram feed:

And in it, the star's hair looks remarkably shorter. Did she get it cut? Well, if you read the caption she posted with it, you know the answer. She wrote "Check out this pretty lady and her #fauxbob on @teamcoco tonight. Stunning [makeup] by @muatraceylevy."

The bob is faux, ladies. I repeat—the bob is not real. Her hair was simply tucked up and pinned for the sake of variety. But if she is considering going for a chop, it looks pretty cute on her, don't you think?

The Exact Lipstick Shade You Should Wear on Valentine's Day (Plus a Flirty Lash Trick)

At last night's AAFCA awards, best-actress winner Gugu Mbatha-Raw looked gorgeous in the most kiss-me, romantic sort of way last night—how's this for Valentine's Day makeup inspiration?

valentines-day-lipstick-color-gugu-mbatha-raw

That sweet strawberry lipstick color is just the right pick for a special date night, I think; as fun and flattering as a good red but infinitely more conducive to kisses (and less intimidating for guys!). Makeup artist Nick Barose used MAC Lipstick in One to Watch, a spring 2015 shade that's not on sale just yet. But I got him to suggest a dupe we can use in the meantime—MAC Pro Lipstick in Fusion Pink. He also threw in this extra tip for y'all: "For some extra flirt that's perfect for Valentine's Day, add feathery lashes that are longer on outer corners." On Mbatha-Raw, he used Eylure Lengthening Lashes #118.

Would you wear this lipstick on Valentine's Day, or do you think you'll go for a whole different sort of makeup scheme? Sexy smoky eyes, perhaps?

Sure, Hannah Davis Looks Hot on the Cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, but Wait Till You See These Shots of Her (Facial) Skin

Talk about her cover all you want, but around here we're more interested in 2015 Sport Illustrated swimsuit-issue cover-model Hannah Davis's facial skin. 'Cause like the rest of her, it's stunning. Behold its beauty...

Caught with a lovely face of smoldering going-out makeup:

At Miami Swim...

Next to Wildfox CEO Jimmy Sommers...
hannah-davis-skin-swim-2

No word on the moisturizer she uses, but I have a feeling it all comes down to good genes. Lucky girl. And based on what's happened for past cover stars like Chrissy Teigen, I think it's safe to say we're about to start seeing a lot more of her and her luminous face.

Oh, and if you don't recognize her from modeling, you might recognize her from another role in her life: Derek Jeter's girlfriend.

This Bachelor Contestant Never Showers and Puts on Makeup Before Bed: Let's Discuss

Forget the most dramatic rose ceremony ever. Last night's episode of The Bachelor featured the most dramatically awkward first date ever—and that was only the beginning of the crazy (for the rest, please refer to Megan Angelo's always-hysterical recap). The part we need to discuss here: We found out that gorgeous front runner Britt apparently never showers, according to the other ladies of the house, who got down to smack-talking while Britt was out on her one-on-one date. "Maybe he likes his women kind of...dirty," one said. I waited for Britt to offer a confirmation/denial/explanation in the confessional, but it appears America will simply be left wondering exactly how often these showers occur and what Britt is so busy with in the Bachelor mansion that she doesn't have time to bathe.

britt-bachelor

That wasn't the only revelation about Britt's beauty routine, although this next one is less surprising: Girlfriend also not only sleeps in full makeup—as evidenced by the pink-glitter-encrusted eyelids glistening in the camera lights when Chris woke her at 4:30 A.M. for their surprise outing—but, according to Carly, actually applies makeup before bed "just in case."

britt-bed-bachelor

Here's the thing, though. I actually don't judge Britt on either of these counts. I think daily showering is highly overrated (unless you're working up a full sweat at the gym or are generally odor-prone). It dries out your skin and messes up your blowout. This winter, I'm on more of an every-other-day sched. Fine, sometimes every other-other day. Judge away. And let's not forget that when you reside in the Bachelor mansion, you're marinating in that chlorinated pool for the better part of each day, plus occasionally in lakes, hot tubs, streams, oceans. Given the nonstop roster of bikini-conducive dates, there is little opportunity for grime to accumulate. Whether you should be showering all that chlorine/algae/salt off your skin is another issue, of course.

As for the makeup, come on—if I were on The Bachelor, you can be damn sure my lashes would be curled and waterproof mascaraed 24/7. We all know you never know what's going to happen up in that joint and that you can be pulled out on a surprise date at any time. Britt's simply employing a smart strategy. If she isn't breaking out/getting blackheads as a result, more power to her. Haters gonna hate, but Britt just might win this thing. Sure enough, Chris commented on how she looks just as gorgeous at 4:30 A.M. as she does when dolled up for rose ceremonies.

Agree with me on either of these points? Or are you with the other contestants in kinda judging Britt for her lack of showering and bedtime makeup application? Also: Do YOU shower daily, or are you on board with my less frequent approach?

Forget Vagina Steaming—Here's the Latest Insane Spa Treatment Celebrities Are Obsessed With

Last week, we had Gwyneth Paltrow steaming her vagina. Now we have Minka Kelly and Mandy Moore freezing their bums off. Everyone, check out the latest weird spa treatment that's winning celebrity fans: cryotherapy, where you expose your body to extreme low temperatures.

Moore announced her new obsession with cryotherapy to the world via Instagram last week and has since gotten famous friend Kelly to join her for another session at L.A.'s Cryo Healthcare. There, for $65, you can spend 2 to 3 minutes in the Cryochamber, chilling to the tune of -200 to -240 degrees Farenheit. No that's not a typo. Negative two hundred to two hundred forty degrees. Whaaat?

"She may not but a convert YET but @minkak got through her first #cryotherapy session like a baller! #friendsmakefriendstrycryotherapy #feelinglikeamillionbuck," Moore writes in her caption.

"Cutie pie and #cryotherapy warrior, @mandymooremm warming her booty up after freezing it off!!," Kelly writes.

Now for the important question: What the heck are these ladies thinking? Well, there are a few forms of cryotheraphy out there, and expert opinions on their benefits vary, but here's Cryo Healthcare's specific claim: "The skin reacts to the cold and sends messages to the brain that acts as a stimulant to the regulatory functions of the body. It produces the scanning of all areas that may not be working to their fullest potential. The skin exposure to the extreme temperatures also triggers the release of anti-inflammatory molecules and endorphins." Cryo Healthcare also offers cryotherapy facials that purportedly reduce pores, fine lines, and dark spots; I contacted several dermatologists before posting this, but none felt comfortable commenting on this technology, as they aren't familiar enough with it.

Hmm. I also haven't yet reviewed the studies behind these cryotherapy claims, but I have to admit, my inner daredevil is intrigued. I'm a native Mainer with a high tolerance for cold, I enjoy those sub-zero vodka lounges, and while I've never done a polar-bear plunge, I can't say I'd say no if pressured. So unlike with Gwyneth's vadge steaming, this is one crazy-sounding spa treatment I'd actually be willing to try at least once or twice. I can also see it being a fun girls' bonding activity, which is probably just what Moore needs right now (she's going through a divorce).

What do you think of the idea of freezing your bum off in a cryotherapy session? Would you be adventurous enough to try something like this? Or would you sooner steam your vagina?

The Easy Makeup Trick That Got Jenna Dewan-Tatum's Cheekbones to Pop

While I'm pretty sure Jenna Dewan-Tatum's cheekbones stand out just fine without any help from makeup, obviously I'm all ears when I hear some of the tricks she uses to play up her bone structure even more for the red carpet. And the makeup she wore to Monday's premiere of Jupiter Ascending strikes a nice balance between extreme contouring and just wearing blush.

contouring-jenna-dewan-tatum

For the event, celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey mixed Nars Illuminator in Copacabana with a rosy cream blush (from Ben Nye, a stage-makeup brand), blending the color into the apples of her cheeks, adding warm color and subtle highlighting. Then he blended the shading color from Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate into the hollows of her cheeks to give her cheekbones that added pop.

Do you use any kind of contouring product on your cheeks? How about highlighter atop your cheekbones? Or are you a straight-up-blush girl?

How to Do Your Makeup for Valentine's Day: Exactly Like Adriana Lima. You're Welcome

Adriana Lima was at an event last night that was labeled as "Victoria's Secret Angel Adriana Lima shares Valentine's Day picks at Victoria's Secret." I don't totally know what that means, but it gives us all a V-Day makeup idea, so whatever, I'm in. Let's look at her stunning eye makeup close up, shall we?

adriana-lima-valentines-day-makeup-idea
adriana-close

Her stunning, smoldering eyes were surrounded with gold eyeshadow (like Ulta's Aztec Gold), with a light pink shimmery shade at the inner corners. Oh, and her eyelashes were reinforced with a very thin edging of black eyeliner—not enough to make her eyes scream "smoky" but enough to make for an evening-friendly look. And the fact that her lips were kept bare makes her look extra kissable. I mean, these Victoria's Secret people, they think of everything in the makeout-friendly department. And it's a pretty simple makeup look—you need only two eyeshadow and an eyeliner to pull it off. If that's not something to send a dozen roses to, I don't know what is.

OK, now who's pinning this to copy it next weekend?

Guess What's Missing Makeup-Wise in This Photo of Rosamund Pike

This might truly be a first—Rosamund Pike just went to a major event without applying one makeup item that most leading ladies would never face photographers without. Here's a photo; can you guess what I'm referring to?

rosamund-pike-makeup

At the Santa Barbara Film Festival on Sunday, the Gone Girl star looked radiant in softly defined makeup done by Georgie Eisdell, but it's one tidbit from Eisdell's how-to that jumped out at me: "I used Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Nourishing Lip Balm to hydrate the lips and let her natural lip color shine." Wait, hold the phone—natural lip color? Just plain-old lip balm? No added tint whatsoever? This is basically unheard-of. If this is really Pike's natural lip color, then I'm jealous; I wish my own were so perky pink.

I know some of you are going to ask about those glowy cheeks too, so I'll go ahead and share the details. Eisdell applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color in Rose Petal with a little Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow on top for luminosity (I recently told you we're seeing this product on every celebrity lately!).

When you're done pondering this pretty makeup, check out our video of Rosamund Pike sharing her list of things she wishes were gone forever.

The Crazy Thing Airlines Are Doing to Try to Make Your Flight More Zen

Forget more legroom—airlines have turned to an unusual way to make their flights more comfortable: fragrance.

According to wsj.com, airlines like Delta, United, Turkish Airlines, and Air Canada’s low-cost Rouge operation have one, and Alaska airlines has one in the pipeline. The idea? To zen you out by filling the cabin or spray courtesy towels with a subtle calming fragrance.

Now, I know what you're imagining: Being trapped in a small space with an intense scent. Not so chill-inducing. But chances are you've already encountered a fragrance without realizing it if you're a frequent traveler. Delta has been using its scent Calm for two years, for example.

And this passage is particularly interesting:

The companies don’t plan to bottle their scents for retail, but they do see a commercial value in them. United marketing manager Mark Krolick says its new fragrance, provisionally called Landing, in concert with improvements like new lighting and redesigned gates, “will create a more relaxing environment. A good experience engenders brand preference, which probably will result in more booking,” he says.

Does fragrance really = repeat costumers? Possibly—it's something hotels have been playing with for a while (and they even sell their perfumes so you can bring your vacation home with you!). Could airline scents be the new big thing in travel? What do you think, gang?

Still on the fence about your wedding look? This new campaign for Miss Dior, starring Natalie Portman as a runaway bride, pretty much has you covered from head to toe. I adore everything about her look, including the slightly messy half-updo, the clean cat-eye, and the peek-a-shoe hemline on her wedding dress. (Speaking of shoes, A+ for the heels too.)


Her hair is quite similar to the way she wore it on her actual wedding day. (She married Benjamin Millepied in 2012.) And I kind of like this dress more than her actual wedding dress—click here for a reminder—although the bare shoulders here wouldn’t have worked for her religious wedding ceremony.

Would you copy Natalie’s look here for your wedding day?

I totally would have. Except for the half-updo, actually. My hair starts to look stringy when it’s down all day. But everything else, totally.

There's nothing like pregnancy to make you suddenly start trying to decode labels on your beauty products. But when you're beyond exhausted and your skin is freaking out in crazy, new ways, figuring out what's safe and effective can be overwhelming. Here's a simple place to start: These 16 skin, hair, and nail products are some of our favorites for use during pregnancy—and anytime, really. Not only do they give gorgeous results, they're free of any iffy ingredients that might keep you up at night. If only we could promise as much once the baby arrives.

SEE MORE Cleanser: Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser, $32, indielee.com Indie Lee launched her natural beauty brand after overcoming a brain tumor and seeking new ways to minimize her exposure to toxins. But her skin care products have appeal beyond their eco-friendly origins. This ultra-gentle daily antioxidant cleanser leaves skin grime-free and supple and has a delightful, subtle strawberry scent.

Face Serum: Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex, $120, tataharperskincare.com Like a magic potion for pregnancy's wildly unpredictable skin, this botanical "multivitamin" doesn't irritate, and it hydrates without causing greasiness or breakouts. Layer it under your moisturizer if your skin is very dry, or use it alone as a smoothing base for makeup and overall radiance booster. Another gem to check out from this luxury organic brand: the Restorative Eye Crème ($90, tataharperskincare.com).

Moisturizer: Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream, $39, juicebeauty.com Few BB and CC creams manage to score a mere one on the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep toxicity scale like this formula does. One reason: Most multitasking tinted moisturizers include chemical or "nano" sunscreen ingredients. This one achieves its SPF 30 by using non-nano zinc oxide (which means no worries about it penetrating your skin and entering your bloodstream). And unlike some other natural tinted moisturizers, it looks totally natural too; choose from five flattering complexion-warming shades.

Hydrating Mist: Board and Batten Farm to Skin Calming Lift, $30, farmtoskin.com A refreshing pick-me-up for use throughout the day, this moisture-boosting spritz contains aloe to soothe and cool, and it has a light rosewater scent. Stash it in your desk to pre-empt dullness and dryness, especially during winter.

Courtesy of Brand

Nail Polish Remover: Priti NYC Soy Nail Polish Remover Wipes, $10, pritinyc.com There's nothing like some acetone soaking into your cuticles to make you feel your first pangs of mommy guilt. These biodegradable wipes make the job of removing polish much less toxic-smelling yet surprisingly effortless. Easy single-use packets arrive packaged in a cute muslin satchel—so simple to toss into your handbag (and future diaper bag) for emergency chipped-paint removal.

Courtesy of Brand

Nail Color: Côte Five-Free Nail Polish, $16, coteshop.myshopify.com We love this California-based nail brand for its high-performing polishes that aren't just "five-free" (i.e., they don't contain formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor, and formaldehyde resin) but are also made in America, vegan, and cruelty-free. The 109-color collection includes everything from sophisticated jewel tones to beautiful beach-chic neutrals.

Courtesy of Brand

Face Wipes: Mama Mio Gorgeous Glow Balancing Facial Swipes, $16, mioskincare.com These gentle wipes are a godsend on nights when you're too tired to do a proper wash (and, oh, there are many of those nights). Tea tree extract helps combat the pimple problem and oil overload, but skin never feels stripped or tight.

Courtesy of Brand

Sunscreen: Alba Botanica Very Emollient Fragrance-Free Mineral Sunscreen, $12, albabotanica.com This mineral formula scored a two on the Skin Deep toxicity scale, making it one of the safer sunscreens on the market. The thick formula does take some effort to rub in, but once applied, it lasts for hours and resists water.

Courtesy of Brand

Redness Fix: VMV Hypoallergenics Red Better Flare-Up Balm, $50, vmvhypoallergenics.com A gentler alternative to steroid creams (like hydrocortisone), this will become your go-to fix for all kinds of upset-skin issues: eczema, rosacea, inflamed pimples, etc. Bonus: It's gentle enough to use for your future baby's skin woes. Check out this brand's hypoallergenic facial moisturizers for super-sensitive skin too.

Body Wash: Dr. Bronner's Unscented Baby-Mild Castile Liquid Soap, $9, drbronner.com This coconut-oil-based cleanser has been around for decades, but it still might be the most perfect pick for use during pregnancy. Although there are scented versions, the unscented is ideal if you find yourself irked by strong scents right now. It also contains twice the amount of olive oil as the scented versions, making it even more of a relief for dry skin. And despite being certified organic and having a refreshingly short ingredients list, this soap will lather just as well as your favorite body wash. If you decide to use it on your baby too, just note that it's not tear-free. (Our top pick for tots: California Baby Super Sensitive Shampoo and Body Wash, $12, californiababy.com.)

Courtesy of Brand

Body Lotion: Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Body Cream, $15, drugstore.com Finally, a body cream you can slather all over without worrying about what exactly is sinking into your skin. Not only is this one's ingredients list practically worry-free, its signature sea buckthorn oil—along with shea butter and meadowfoam—gets your skin totally plump and glowing. It's also great for spot-targeting stubborn rough zones before bed.

Body Scrub: Ren Guérande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm, $37, renskincare.com Ren's mission: to use only 100-percent plant- and mineral-derived active ingredients and no synthetics. But this scrub's one of the best we've tried, natural or otherwise. While so many others immediately dissolve or drip away, this rich cream clings to skin so you can take your sweet time massaging it in. (You can also apply it to dry skin preshower, if you prefer.) There's just enough graininess to smooth sensitive skin without irritation. Note that this giant jar could probably last through all three trimesters, unless you get even more addicted than we are.

Courtesy of Brand

Stretch-Mark Salve: Nine Naturals Vanilla and Geranium Regenerative Belly Butter, $35, ninenaturals.com Nine Naturals caters to pregnant women, so it's no surprise that its products for keeping stretched-taut belly skin moisturized and unstressed are some of the best we've tried. This cream is completely nongreasy, but it nixes any hint of itch. The only downside? It feels and smells like delicious vanilla frosting, which may leave you fighting serious cupcake cravings.

Courtesy of Brand

Shampoo: John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Shampoo, $14.50, johnmasters.com It's amazing how hard it is to find something so simple: a sulfate-free shampoo that doesn't contain synthetic fragrances but still gets hair clean and shiny. The Bare collection from this organic brand is refreshingly free of scent and won't fade your hair color (key if you prefer to delay your next dye job until the baby's born). Got dandruff? Try the Zinc and Sage Shampoo With Conditioner ($20, johnmasters.com) for a fix that's not laden with chemicals.

Courtesy of Brand

Conditioner: Rahua Conditioner, $34, rahua.com This organic hair and skin care brand is based around a restorative oil from the Amazon rain forest called rahua (pronounced ra-wa). The conditioner leaves hair smooth yet bouncy, plus it's actually a two-in-one, moonlighting as a medium-hold styling cream—and what tired, pregnant lady doesn't appreciate a little multitasking action?

Courtesy of Brand

Deodorant: Dr. Hauschka Rose Deodorant, $23, dermstore.com It's important to note that this product is not an antiperspirant. It is, however, a natural aluminum-free option that does the job of nixing odor thoroughly and oh so elegantly (yes, we are calling a natural deodorant elegant!). It dries quickly, feels soft, and won't irritate even the testiest underarm skin. True, it's pricier than your average stick, but it lasts a long time, and the top-quality fragrance oils keep you smelling like, well, roses, all day.

Courtesy of Brand

Acne Treatment: Mario Badescu Drying Cream, $17, mariobadescu.com If you're avoiding salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide while you're pregnant, good luck buying a blemish cream, especially one that actually works. That's why this one is a hidden gem; it relies on colloidal sulfur to dry up even your most throbbing, hormonal pimples. The scent isn't pretty, but it works so well you won't care.
