Beauty Buzz: Kacey Musgave’s Magnetic CMA Mane, Lupita Nyong’o’s Luxe Look for Lancôme, and Bao Bao Wan Bonds with MAC


We would be remiss to leave out the most hair-raising news to come out of the CMA Awards last night: Kacey Musgraves. The country songstress set social media ablaze when she stepped on the red carpet with a bouffant of epic proportions. It turns out the look was in tribute to Priscilla Presley’s signature strands in the ‘60s and has already been mimicked by other stage sirens like Lana Del Rey. #BigHairDontCare [Glamour]

As if we needed any indication to turn up our lip look, Lupita Nyong’ois looking lovely once again in her latest Lancôme ad! The Star Wars actress lay in front of Mert and Marcus’s camera to show off the brand’s L’Absolu Rouge in Rouge Amour #160. The crew even celebrated the spectacular shoot with a dance party!

Baubles and beauty go hand-in-hand, as Bao Bao Wan is making magic with MAC come March 2015. The Bejing-born front row fixture will craft a gold-toned, jewelry-inspired palette, polishes, beauty powder, and lippies that will be available for only four weeks in 33 countries and territories. As for the limited color palette for the collection, Wan wanted to ensure the selection could complement everyone’s skin tone. She said, “I’m very conservative with makeup color, and I’m very much about gold shades. I used my logic and my senses: I didn’t want any crazy colors in the collection, and I wanted it to be practical and to suit every skin tone.” [WWD]
