Beauty Buzz: Selena Gomez Rocks the ‘Rachel’, Pat McGrath’s Latest Killer Beauty Looks, and Gwen Stefani Branches Further Into Beauty


“Rachel, is that you?” is likely what many thought when Selena Gomez’s fresh cut came across their Instagram feed. The star’s new length left a lot of layers, similar to Jennifer Aniston’s iconic style. It’s no surprise, as the young songstress has been a fan of Aniston’s since she was eight. Gomez captioned a picture of the pair, “I have not only been following her career as a fan since I was 8 and now get to watch her completely transform in her new movie Cake, I have gotten to have real conversations with such a real heart, made my entire year.” What a fitting homage!

Haute Couture week has kicked off a serious high note for beauty buffs. Versace channeled its inner bad girl with a smoked out version of a crease-cutting cat-eye, courtesy of Pat McGrath. But the makeup maestro already had a head start at the Givenchy Fall 2015 menswear show. She remixed her tribal masks from the women’s show, but gave supermodels oil-slicked smoky eyes and glossy Bordeaux lips, paired with gelled baby hair. It’s time to go bold or go home!

Gwen Stefani didn’t have to look far for inspiration for her latest beauty venture. The Voice judge revealed that a lipstick line is in the works at the announcement of her MasterCard’s Priceless Surprises concert. Stefani served as lip model, rocking the fresh formula in her signature red hue at the event. “This red that I’m wearing right now is a prototype,” she said, noting she’s test driving different brands to bring out the best in hers. After fragrances and nail polishes, our only question is why she didn’t start on this sooner? [People]

As people streamline their beauty routines, brands are catching up with more functions for their makeup must-haves. Case in point: Clinique. The brand will introduce its Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer this February, a 20-shade, full coverage foundation that lasts for 12 hours without creasing or feeling heavy. Plus, it comes with a wiper applicator to ensure you have the perfect amount of product every time. Needless to say, we’ll be snapping this up ASAP come spring. [WWD]

No one can say no to Oreos, but wearing it is another issue entirely. YouTube beauty guru Katherine Ward has crafted the perfect recipe for lush lashes with help from the chocolaty cookie. All you have to do is smash the cookie into a fine powder—no cream necessary—add a little water and face or eye primer, and voila, comestible cosmetics! [She Finds]

Benefit is granting our wish through a partnership with BaubleBar. Aptly called Beauty Genie in a Bottle, the three-item set features a fabulous BaubleBar accessory and two cult classics from Benefit. With fabulous fortunes like “Sparkle, Shine & All Things Fine,” “Real Romance & A Rosy Future” and “Love, Luck & Long Lashes,” they’ll be welcome by any beauty buff when it hits shelves on January 27.
