Drew Barrymore’s Wedding Makeup Tips

Confused about what kind of makeup look you should go with for your upcoming nuptials? Drew Barrymore has one fantastic makeup tip: don’t go crazy!

“That day is so surreal and important and long-lasting for people, I think the biggest mistake you can make is to overdo it,” she said at her Flower Beauty spring launch in New York this week.

“Look like yourself on your wedding day — don’t go with crazy spiral curls and some heavy foundation and look back at that picture and be like, ‘Whoa, that doesn’t look like me.’ It should be you but the most enhanced, beautiful natural version of yourself.”

And if you’re thinking of trying out a bold new look, the mom-to-be has a few words of caution. “I appreciate some women who are like, ‘I really want to change my hair color for that day,’ but it’s not the time to play around. If you are thinking of doing something bold like a nail, pick a shade that has powders and grays and neutrals in it so it tones down the ‘cuckoo factor.’ I think wedding days and ‘cuckoo factor’ are not a good combination.”

Wise words! The actress, who married Will Kopelman in 2012, chose a simple look for her wedding day.

“I tried to do a dark lip on my own wedding day, and I just wasn’t feeling it. I went very natural. It took me 10 minutes to do my hair and I wore very little makeup, and I’m glad I did. I’m all for bold, but I just find that’s not the day for it.”

Everyone might be talking about Jennifer Lawrence and her new pixie cut, but at this week’s Berlin premiere of The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, all eyes were on Elizabeth Banks, who stunned in a silver beaded strapless Elie Saab dress that looked like it belonged on the Oscars red carpet.

Also at the Vogue Funds Award was Dutch model Doutzen Kroes in a peek-a-boo Cushnie et Ochs white knee-length dress, paired beautifully with bronze heels and minimal accessories. Love the simple bun and slick of red lipstick to pull the look together.

We also love Rose Byrne’s red Jonathan Saunders dress, paired with berry Top Shop suede pumps at Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards in NYC on Monday.

It’s hard for Blake Lively not to look stunning in anything she wears, but we’re particularly smitten with the off-the-shoulder floral Oscar de la Renta gown she wore to at an event for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research in NYC on November 9th.

Celebrity Baby News: Drew Barrymore is Pregnant Again!

It’s a big week for celebrity news, maternity-wise – last week Kerry Washington and Olivia Wilde announced they were pregnant, today, Drew Barrymore is also expecting!

Barrymore, 38, and husband Will Kopelman, 35, confirmed they are expecting their second child via her rep.

She also showed signs of a baby bump at the LACMA Art+FIlm Gala in L.A. on Saturday.

The actress has spoken about her plans to grow the family and have a sibling for their daughter Olive, 13 months.

“I was an only child, and it was lonely,” she told the September issue of InStyle.

“Some people love it and thrive on the independence, but I want my kids to have other kids around. Maybe two kids so they can run around life together, roll their eyes at their parents together like Rusty and Audrey Griswold from National Lampoon’s Vacation. So however that’s going to come about, it’s gonna happen!”

Barrymore also revealed she’s happy she waited till she was older to have children: “I’m glad I lived such a full life before I settled down into a family because I got to enjoy it and get it out of my system.”

5 Of The Best Very Short Hairstyles

Winter is the perfect time to make a major hairstyle change and opt for the chop. Very short hair looks super chic with a turtleneck and trench coat (and gives you enough time before summer to grow it out if you’re not thrilled with the look).

The decision to chop your long hair off can make you quite apprehensive, particularly as you come to the day of your hair cut and still haven’t made the decision of which style to go for! To help you make that decision, here are five of the best very short hairstyles out there right now.

Pixie cut hairstyle

This is a stylish and eye-catching style for thin, fine hair and is a favourite with celebrities like Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway. It will really make your eyes pop, so now is the time to play up your eye makeup with stronger brows and dark lashes.

Short and sleek bob

This is a variation of the pixie cut but with longer and shorter layers to give a sleeker look. This style is perfect for all ages and ideal if you’ve got fine hair and are looking for a more sophisticated, fashionable look as a refreshing change to long, limp locks – just ask Katie Holmes.

Face framing bob

This chic hair cut is short at the back and long enough at the front to frame your face and can suit every face shape, but it particularly compliments a rounder face. For an even more striking look, pair the chop with a bold new hair colour, like Ashlee Simpson’s platinum blonde bob.

Short and messy hairstyle

Messy short styles are among the easiest to maintain, often needing just a quick tousle with some wax – ideal if you’re not a morning person and only have a few minutes to get ready! Short and messy hairstyles also suit different face shapes. Drew Barrymore’s messy bob is both sexy and sophisticated.

Classic bob with fringe 

There are so many variations to the classic bob, though a very short version with a bold fringe is trending once more and really gives body to otherwise flyaway hair. Dannii Minogue’s bob and fringe is one of our favourite hairstyles of all time. It’s more high maintenance than other bob hairstyles, but you can style the fringe in many ways, including a side swept fringe, clipped up away from the face or tousled in soft waves.

No action for Angelina!

No action for Angelina!

You would think Angelina Jolie, the woman with illegal amounts of sex appeal, would be turning men away in droves – especially since she and kooky husband Billy Bob Thornton split over a year. But not so, according to the kick-arse star who is soon returning to the big screen as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. The sultry star recently confessed to US talk show host Jay Leno on The Tonight Show that not only is she currently single, but that she hasn?t dated anyone all year! (Thank goodness, those Nic Cage rumours were pure Hollywood fabrication!) “I haven’t had sex for over a year,” she told Leno. “It’s horrible. God help the next person,? the star quipped, revealing that while she is looking forward to her next romantic encounter, she is more than happy being Mum to little Maddox for the time being. Awww.



Justin needs Mummy?s approval

Seems like Justin Timberlake still needs his mummy?s approval when it comes to affairs of the heart. As things heat up with Cameron Diaz, the rumour mills have gone into overdrive, claiming that Justin is so in love with his new gal pal, he’s even flown his mother from her south Tennessee home all the way to Florida just to meet Diaz. A source close to Timberlake told reporters, “This is an official ‘meet the parents’ summit, Justin’s been telling his pals that Cameron’s the one – he wants to make sure he goes about everything the right way.”

The two stars have been seen out and about quite a lot recently, and just last week the two were spotted at the trendy nightclub called Opium and one fellow clubber told the Daily Star, “Cameron was all over him. She was hanging off his shoulder as he ate. They were very touchy-feely.” Another source who apparently spotted the two lovebirds at the Mint Lounge said, “Justin showed up the other night with Cameron. They had around 20 people fussing over them and he stayed dancing with Cameron until late.” Sounds like a match made in disco heaven, right? Yes, but just to stir the pot a little more, there have been conflicting reports of Diaz being seen out with old flame Jared Leto. Could they just be good friends these days? Maybe. Maybe not!



Mini Me to Marry

Could be that opposites attract really do attract. Standing tall at two-foot 8-inch Goldmember star Verne ?Mini Me? Troyer has announced that he is about to get hitched – to his 29 year old girlfriend. No biggie there, but hang on a sec – Troyer?s girlfriend is 6-foot-2 yoga instructor Genevieve Gallen! Could it be? The ceremony is expected to take place sometime in November. Congrats to the odd (but happy) couple!



Charlie?s Angel star reveals all

Drew Barrymore has confirmed what has long been suspected, she likes both men and women. The Charlie?s Angel?s star has revealed that she is indeed bisexual ?Do I like women sexually? Yeah I do? she said. Totally. I have always considered myself bisexual?.

Thanks for sharing Drew!
