Natalie Portman always manages to look flawless, whether on a red carpet, in her Dior campaigns or on the street captured by paparazzi.
We turn to skin-care veteran (and celebrity fave!) Renée Rouleau, who knows it takes more than the right products to get radiant.
The landing page of “How Pretty Do I Look” is a glaring shade of pink and features an illustration of three disproportionally thin women with numbers hovering above their heads like thought bubbles — thought bubbles that reflect on a numerical scale how pretty they are. A search for “beauty rate” and you’ll find similar apps including “Vanity: Are You Hot Or Ugly,” “Beauty Score,” and “Ugly Meter” (great names, we know).
I remember the first time I got my makeup done professionally. “I hate it so much,” I whined to my mom. “I look like a freaking Barbie doll,” I said, as I proceeded to wipe off the $50 job. And that’s more or less the relationship I’ve had with makeup ever since.
Photoshop snafus in glossies usually involve excessive slenderizing, or reconfiguring a body part in a manner that makes it look plain bizarre, not better. (Or, sometimes, awkwardly just leaving an entire body part out of the picture — which happens way more often than you’d think.) But Gigi Hadid’s cover of Vogue China had some more specific detailing done: The model’s signature birthmarks are mysteriously absent from the photo.
In 2012, photographer Brock Elbank was playing in a weekend-league football match in Sydney when a spectator caught his eye. It was his teammate’s son, Eddie, 10 at the time, with “an incredible face full of freckles, like I’d never seen before,” he says.
Modern Family star Sofía Vergara is a CoverGirl well known for her confidence and unabashedly frank remarks about being a Latina woman in Hollywood — but she’d rather not watch herself age onscreen.
What do NFL stars DeAngelo Williams, Benjamin Watson, and Jason Witten have in common? They have a perhaps surprising talent for styling pigtails, buns, and braids. The three players star in Pantene’s newest campaign, Dad-Do, which falls under the brand’s “Strong is Beautiful” umbrella and is about celebrating the next generation of strong women. Just in time for the Super Bowl, these dads have stepped off the field and in front of the camera for four how-to videos that feature them doing their daughter’s hair.
Winfrey was hired as a co-anchor for Baltimore’s WJZ-TV’s nightly news at 22, but after less than a year on the job, she found herself demoted. Winfrey told Baltimore Magazine, “I shall never forget April 1, 1977."
As the only 40-something at Yahoo Beauty, I’m surrounded by 20-somethings and constantly reminded of that time. While I will never figure it all out, more than a decade later I’ve learned a few things that I would have loved to know then.
Fields asked her castmates to come with as little makeup as possible, to “where the canvas is when it’s a little more blank.”
Jennifer Aniston will never give up on the bikini. People’s Most Beautiful Woman in the World 2004, Jennifer Aniston, turns 48 in three weeks, but she’s not going to give up the two-piece swimsuit for at least three more decades. This week, she told People that her days soaking up the rays in itty-bitty bikinis in Cabo San Lucas are far from over: “If I can be the first 80-year-old to go out there successfully in a bikini, then I’ll take that on,” she said.
