The New Beauty Icons

You know when actresses just have that undeniable star power right out of the gate? (Think Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Drew Barrymore, Anne Hathaway, Lauren Bacall, among others). Well this crop of up-and-coming leading ladies impressed us with their acting chops AND their beauty cred from the get-go. These four ladies are definitely ones to watch “ and are sure to be dictating beauty trends on-and-off the big screen for many years to come. Get the scoop on their go-to products for hair and makeup.

Anna Kendrick

This Academy Award nominated actress stood out for her role in Up in the Air as an uptight and less-than-personable character. But this lady really turned her look around for the Academy Awards in her blush coloured Elie Saab couture gown. Makeup artist Sara Glick created her Oscar’s look using Arcona Skincare and Tarte Cosmetics. All natural moisturizer kept Anna’s skin hydrated throughout the evening. Glick used Tarte’s natural cheek stain in Eco-Cheek and their LipSurgence natural lip stain in Charmed as a base. For added hydration, Glick finished with a spritz of Lavender Hydrasol mist.

Emma Roberts

Genetics are on the side of this young beauty, with Julia Roberts for an aunt, you know you’re in good hands. Emma Roberts has joined the ranks as a Neutrogena brand ambassador, so it’s only fitting that her makeup bag be full of its products. Skin Clearing Oil-Free Makeup in Natural Buff followed by Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer kit SPF 20. To get the look of her eyes, try Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Duo in Fairy Dust. Sweep the lighter base shade all over the lid and apply the deeper accent shade along the base of the upper lashes, blending towards the crease. Finish off with Cosmic Black eyeliner and Healthy Volume Waterproof Mascara.

Emma Watson

This starlet sure has transformed from gawky wizard to fashion darling. How to get this feminine look? Emma uses Organic Glam makeup including the Luminous Antioxidant Foundation in the palest shade, a concealer, a pink blusher and a light bronzer. Emma is a huge fan of Dermalogica Tinted Moisturizer and Stila’s Sun Bronzing powder in No.1. On her nails, she wears chemical-free Zoya nail polish and Chanel’s Le Vernis nail colour in Fantastic.

Lea Michele

She may play the beauty-challenged character of Rachel Berry in the Emmy Award winning series Glee but this lady is anything but clueless when it comes to red carpet looks. At this year’s Kids Choice Awards, Lea wore Giorgio Armani luminous skin foundations in #6 and CoverGirl Ageless Concealer. For her cheeks, Lea used CG Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush and Kevyn Aucoin sculpting powder. Smokey Shadow Blast in Onyx Smoke and Bronze Fire was complimented with Perfect Blend liner in black. It was Kevyn Aucoin flesh tone lip pencil and CoverGirl outlast soft pink satin for her lips. The whole look was topped off with Nars Highlighting blush powder.
