When it comes to Cannes Film Festival, some people are focused on the actors, others on the fashion, but we are zooming in on the manicures. The glamorous dresses call for equally exciting nail designs. Get an up close look at the best nail art and polish spotted in the South of France.
If you're a lover of mineral makeup, you might be familiar with Priori Coffee Berry Perfecting Minerals ($59.50). Just like Nude By Nature, Bare Minerals and other popular mineral makeup brands, this foundation offers a skin-friendly, natural alternative to heavier cosmetics that usually contain nasties like parabens and fragrances. The latter and other chemical additives like synthetic dyes, can cause clogged pores, cause breakouts and adverse skin reactions — hence the rise in popularity of mineral makeup a few years ago. That said, always check the ingredient list on any product claiming to be "mineral", as some still include the above. Keep reading.
While we all might be feeling the affects of the weather lately (it's raining cats and dogs in Sydney!), there's so much you can enjoy from Winter beauty — darker makeup palettes, stronger brows and pretty accessories. What's not to love? This week, the POPSUGAR editors' have put together their favourite beauty picks, and for a taste of what's inside, think: cheek stains, makeup tools and a divine face cream! Curious? Come check it out.
Countless shirts have been ruined by an innocent hug that left a large foundation smear. While your first inclination might be to reach for the makeup remover, think again. The oil, which is meant for the skin, might actually make the situation worse. Save your shirts, towels, bath mats, and more with three tips for removing foundation stains. Just keep reading for the details.
At last night's The Great Gatsby premiere in Sydney, there was one star in particular who caught our attention: Elizabeth Debicki. Born in Paris but growing up in Melbourne, the 22-year-old actress' parents are of Polish and Irish descent — which explains that perfect alabaster skin. Aside from being a performing arts graduate, she's a trained ballet dancer, and it shows in the way she carries her 5ft 11 frame. She's graceful, elegant and can rock a 1920's hairstyle like it's nobody's business, which she does playing brunette Jordan Baker in Gatsby. We've decided it's time to cast the beauty spotlight in this up-and-comer's direction, so come with us as we track her best beauty moves yet!

Grab a mirror and follow these simple steps to discover your personal shape when you keep reading.
Chris Martin and Tom Ford were among the stylish men in attendence at Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop Summer party in London today but when it came to the ladies, Kate Hudson took out the best beauty award. She doesn't usually do a lip — usually opting for hair and eyes — so it is nice to see this bright, matte lip on the actress. Thinking about trying your own version of a punchy pink lip and all-white ensemble? We've got three you'll like, after the jump.
This is one product I've been dying to tell you about. We know BB and CC creams are no new thing now, but that doesn't mean they're all the same. As you might already know, I'm a big fan of both Smashbox's Camera Ready CC Cream and L'Oréal Paris' Anti-Redness CC Cream, but the Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream ($45) has really shaken things up in my beauty cupboard. They're like my children, you see — I try to share the love. A new addition to the brand's popular Moisture Surge range, it comes packed with SPF 30 and glides on like a dream. It's more foundation-like than other CC creams I've tried, but still feels very light. The hero ingredients in the Moisture Surge range are aloe barbadensis leaf water and hyaluronic acid, so you can see why this CC cream is so hydrating. Perfect for Winter. I am oily so I finish with a powder, but if you have dry skin, you're going to love this just on its own. The finish is luminous. Want the good news? It's available online right now, and hits counters on June 2.
Mascara is such an integral part of our beauty routines that we just accept it as a salient thing. But over its more than 6,000 year-long history, mascara has gone through some pretty big changes. For some fun (and surprising!) facts about something you probably use every day, just keep reading.
When it comes to the glamour at the Cannes Film Festival, even the supporting details are on a grander scale. For every ensemble that hits the red carpet, we'd be remiss not to take a closer look at the sparkling jewellery, sleek clutches, and sky-high heels that accompany every gorgeous gown — without these decadent little details, no celebrity arrival would be complete. Just click through to get up close and personal with Chopard, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, and the rest of the luxe line-up of bags, baubles, and heels to hit Cannes.
