Beauty Trends Inspired by Hollywood

Get ready for your close-up by taking beauty cues from the actress-influenced looks on fall's fashion runways.

Special Offer

Cleopatra eyeliner, bold new brows, and lips so red they make the heart race (literally) — there's precious little that's muted in makeup right now.

Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra, 1963

RUNWAY REVIVAL: Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Molinari, MaxMara

THE CLOSE-UP: Taylor's skin is perfection, her lips nude. Focus is on the black precision eyeliner — worn alone or with accents of turquoise, aqua, silver, and sapphire to enhance her famous violet eyes.

BACKSTAGE BUZZ: "It's all about hypnotic, mesmerizingly beautiful eyes," says Charlotte Tilbury, makeup artist at the Alexander McQueen show.

YOUR TAKE: Start with fine black liner along your top lashline (add more if you dare) as close to your eyelashes as possible. Cream liners create a rich, glossy finish, but for novices, a pen liner is easier to maneuver. Craving color? Use a navy liner or a soft wash of blue over your lids.
