The 2023 Oscars may be over, but I can’t stop thinking about the looks that graced this year’s champagne carpet. One of the best-dressed stars IMHO? Eva Longoria. The actress wore a plunging, embellished Zuhair Murad gown, which was complemented by her sleek and smokey makeup. Longoria’s entire look was done with customer-loved L’Oreal Paris products, including this viral mascara that’s on sale for just $12 at Amazon. 

L’Oreal’s Telescopic Lift Mascara was the finishing touch to Longoria’s dramatic cat-eye makeup. The product’s innovative brush has two kinds of bristles; one side lifts the lashes and loads on the product, while the other combs out and separates the lashes, together adding up to 5 millimeters of length, according to the brand. Plus, thanks to its ceramide-infused formula, the mascara lasts up to 36 hours and protects the lashes from damage. The washable, red carpet-worthy product is available on Amazon in three deep shades.

Longoria has been a L’Oreal ambassador for nearly 20 years, so it’s no surprise her Oscars glam was done with the brand’s best-selling products. “Usually when we do a red carpet look, the dress determines the hair and makeup,” Longoria’s makeup artist Elan Bongiorno said in a press release. “This look was no different. We wanted something really modern to match.” And, since the actress went with slicked-back hair, “it had to be about the eyes,” Bongiorno said. The result was “a beautiful, modern cat-eye – not too thick or overwhelming. A nod to Sofia Loren and Old Hollywood, but with a modern twist.” If you’re looking to recreate Longoria’s look at home, the Telescopic mascara is the place to start.

Not only is the product celebrity- and makeup-artist-approved, Amazon shoppers are big fans, too. One 65-year-old reviewer said it’s “the absolute best mascara [they] have ever used,” going on to say it lengthens and lifts the lashes as promised. A different customer said the product makes their eyelashes “look long and separated without clumping,” adding that they “wear it to the gym and even in the sauna,” but the mascara “stays put” all day long. Another shopper confirmed, saying the product “doesn’t flake or smudge.” 

Shop the L’Oreal Paris Telescopic Lift Mascara while it’s still on sale for just $12 at Amazon. And, to recreate her entire Oscars look, shop Longoria’s other discounted L’Oreal picks, below, starting at $9.

Lip Contouring Is Back in a Big Way Thanks to TikTok

Time to try it out for yourself.




Bolder is better, once again, when it comes to lips in 2023. Though it often feels like a generously lined pucker never went away, this time, it’s not just about injectables and lip pencils getting the job done—it’s all about lip contouring, which is yet another aughts trend making a comeback.

“I think people are looking for ways to enhance their lips without fillers, or if they have them, ways to make them look fuller and more natural,” says J. Brandon Correa, National Makeup Artist, YSL Beauté. Lip contouring is proof of the magic that makeup can deliver. 

Lip contour example

“Lips have made a comeback post-pandemic,” says Talia CichAnastasia Beverly Hills Pro Artist. “Lips have always been a feature that everyone can easily play up or be part of their signature look, so now that we are wearing makeup again, it’s all about lips! Viral lip trends are everywhere, making it fun to try new looks or techniques to achieve your perfect pout. Trends have also been very ’90s-inspired, and now we are seeing a modern approach to that look.”

Read on for everything you need to know about the lip contouring revival, plus how to DIY.

What is Lip Contouring?

In case you didn’t get the memo the first time, lip contouring is a makeup technique that enhances the fullness of the lips. “It’s the use of light and dark shades to create a fuller-looking effect,” Cich says. “Lip contouring can also help to correct lip shape (like unbalanced or downturned) or create a specific lip shape (like round or sharp).”

How to Contour Your Lips

First, start by prepping your lips. Exfoliating and hydrating help to create a smooth base for application and long wear. Cich recommends the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Primer ($16) for nourishing hydration. Next, create a blank canvas by applying a thin layer of concealer—her go-to is Magic Touch Concealer ($29) —in a shade close to your skin tone.

“This helps create a smooth blend and color payoff,” Cich says. “Now, it’s time to create fullness. My favorite product to use is cream bronzer—it glides on with ease, blends seamlessly, and has the perfect shade range for lip contouring. Choose a shade two to three shades deeper than your skin tone (depending on your preference).”

Next, apply bronzer—Cich recommends this Cream Bronzer ($35)—around the perimeter of the lips using a small flat brush. She also loves the A2 Pro Brush ($18) because it hugs the lip shape and stays precise. For a fuller-looking pout, overline above the cupid’s bow and across the center of the bottom lip.

“This accentuates the center of the lips for a pouty look,” Cich says. “Keep the corners closer to your natural lip line. Don’t worry about being perfect. It’s a cream product that easily blends and has buildable intensity.” Gently blend the edges of the contour with a beauty sponge or brush. Set it with powder for an extra long-lasting effect. Next, line and define lips using lip liner. Slightly line above your natural lip line to create volume or focus exactly where you want more fullness. Use the side of the pencil to shade inward from the corners.

For a more pronounced cupid’s bow, draw an “X” with the liner. For next-level contour, you can use a deeper shade of lip liner in the corners. Now, you can fill your lips with lipstick in a shade that best fits your look. For a contoured look, try using a deeper shade of lip liner and a lighter shade of lipstick. 

 How to Use Lip Liner Like a Professional Makeup Artist

The use of light and dark helps to create volume. Apply lipstick to the center of the lip and blend the edges. “For even more pout, you can highlight the center of the lip with Magic Touch Concealer,” Cich says. “I also like to add highlighter to the cupid’s bow to accentuate the lips even more. Finish by applying a lip gloss to the center of the lip for high shine that is the perfect finishing touch for creating fuller-looking lips.” 

Short on time? Try a quicker lip contour. Correa suggests using a lip pencil (or his favorite hack: a deeper matte lipstick such as YSL Beauté Slim Velvet, $45) and filling in the counter corners of the lip, top and bottom, leaving the center of the lip open. “Now, apply a lighter shade of lipstick that has a soft shine or gloss—such as Candy Glaze ($39) or Rouge Volupte Shine ($43)—directly on top, starting in the center,” he says. “This will blend the deeper shade and create a beautiful contour.” 

Lip Contouring Mistakes to Avoid

For a flawless finish, keep a few common mishaps in mind. A major one is not blending enough since you want the shadow to look natural, like it blends into the skin. “Also, blend the lip liner, so it doesn’t look too intense in contrast to the lipstick,” Cich says. “Another mistake could be choosing the right shade that is most flattering on you. Choose a shade that best compliments your skin tone (not too cool or warm) and a shade that is your ideal depth of shade (light to dark). If you like a more natural look, opt for a lighter shade. If you like a little more drama, bump up a shade.”

Just be sure not to go too deep with your hue! “The idea is to mimic shadows on the lips, and if you go too dark, it can get muddled and messy,” Correa says. “For a soft natural look, select lips shades that are about one to two shades apart from each other. For more of a dramatic, bold statement, select shades that are three to four shades apart.” 

One more thing: Don’t go too shiny or flat. “Juxtaposing texture in this technique is important—if you use all matte or all shine, you will lose dimension,” Correa says.

27 Gorgeous Easter Makeup Looks (Without a Single Peep in Sight




Easter 2023 is on Sunday, April 9. As the holiday nears, you might brainstorm what to wear for Easter brunch, how to style your hair, and which design to request from your nail artist. While you’re at it, you might as well start thinking about your Easter makeup look, too. Generally speaking, you can’t go wrong with soft browns (if you prefer more neutral makeup looks), pale pinks, and pretty much any pastel shade. Craving more inspiration than color palettes alone? Ahead, find over two dozen Easter makeup looks you’ll love for the entire season (and beyond).

Peach Eyeliner


Pastel peach is a perfectly acceptable color choice for Easter, and here, you can see how beautifully it pops against darker skin tones. For the look, use liquid eyeliner (like the ColourPop Major Inspo Graphix Ink Liner, $9) and touch up the edges with a pointed cotton swab dipped in micellar water.

Peachy Brown Smoky Eye


Rather than going with a full-fledged dark smoky eye this Easter, opt for earthier brown hues to complete your lid look. The Lottie London Fired Up Palette ($8) can help you achieve a similar look.

Natural Flush


For a fresh-faced Easter makeup look, stick to a neutral pink and tan color palette. To bring this look to life, use the MAC Cosmetics Powder Blush ($28) in Burnt Pepper and the Lanolips Lanolin Tinted Lip Balm ($14) in Perfect Nude.

Subtle Contour


While we often think first of our upper lids, here, celebrity makeup artist Nikki Wolff swiped most of the color below model Karlie Kloss’ eyes. Moreover, the way she swiped the shadow up and out from her outer corners and on her cheeks created a subtle contour we can’t take our eyes off.

Lilac Lids


Lilac is a popular spring shade, and if you love a more vibrant lid look, you can’t go wrong with a diffused wash of the color. Here, celebrity makeup artist Sir John used a matte lilac shadow and glossy cranberry lips to create a gorgeous makeup look. To create a similar style, pair your favorite shade from the Huda Beauty Pastel Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($29) with the About Face Cherry Pick Lip Color Butter ($15) in The Cranberries.

Faux Freckles


An easy way to look fresh-faced? Speckle your nose and cheeks with faux freckles (the Freck The Original Freckle, $28, is a fan fave) and add a touch of highlighter to your cheekbones and the tip of your nose to boot.

Lifted Blush


The way you apply your blush can instantly perk up your entire complexion. Here, celebrity makeup artist Jenna Kristina swiped color up toward Kaitlyn Dever’s temples for a fresh, no-makeup look.

Illuminated Inner Corners


Here’s another example of how lovely earthy brown smoky eyes can look. To brighten up the lid look, skip out on statement eyeliner and false lashes in favor of a little inner eye illumination. (We love how easily the Charlotte Tilbury Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter, $48, applies.)

Natural Beauty


Opt for lid and lip shades that match yet accentuate your natural skin tone to achieve a glowy natural look. For example, to copy the look above, you might use the Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Balm ($24) in Coconut to pump up the shine without drastically changing the color of your lips.

Dinner Smize


While Easter brunch might call for a daytime look, you can bring the drama for dinner. Here, you can see how stunning peachy smoky eyes look with dewy skin and glossed lips.

Subtle Pop of Pink


Celebrity makeup artist Nina Park is responsible for Sadie Sink’s pretty, pink-tinted complexion above. Love the idea of a monochrome look? Use a multiuse stick, like the Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Stick, $48.

Lilac Love


To make model Stacy Wangui Michuki’s lilac lids stand out, Wolff added a slim white wing to each eye. For a similar look, try using the Make Up For Ever Aqua Resist Color Ink 24HR Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($26).

Blurred Coral Lips


Sometimes looking Easter-ready is as simple as putting on a festive coral lipstick and blotting it out for a more lived-in look. Case in point: Daisy Edgar Jones’ pretty pout above. The exact color Park used on her lips is the Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait High Intensity Color in 854 Rouge Puissant.

Pretty in Pink


Here, Wolff draped Yara Shahidi’s blush from her cheeks up to her eyes and temples. The result? A flushed makeup look perfect for spring.

Opaque Peach


Don’t be afraid to go bold with your pastel Easter makeup idea. As pretty as sheer washes of color look, opaque swatches can be equally beautiful.

Clear Eyes, Full Brows


Looking put together can be as simple as caring for your skin, brushing up your brows, swiping on some mascara, and coating your lips in color. To keep your brows looking their best, try the Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel with Lamination Effect ($26).

Rose Gold Muse


Lucy Hale makes a case for trying a rose gold makeup look. While she rocked the beat for a different occasion, you can’t go wrong with this subtle shimmery pink makeup for your Easter festivities.

Pink on Pink


Lids and lips in one color? We’re all about it. Consider the Huda Beauty Cheeky Tint Cream Blush Stick ($25) in Proud Pink to copy the look above.

Champagne Shimmer


To recreate this glowy look, you’ll need the Kylie Cosmetics Cupid High Gloss ($17) and a shimmery champagne eyeshadow, like the Glowing Through It shade from the Kylie Cosmetics The Mauve Palette ($32).

Baby Pink Lids


Your lips don’t have to perfectly match your lids, though. Here, you can see how pretty baby pink lids look with a peachier pout.

Brown Sugar Shimmer


If you have green or hazel eyes, a warm brown sugar smoky eye is a beautiful way to make your features pop.

Pink and Purple Paring


Lilac lids with a pale pink lip? We love to see it.

Glowing Skin


Your makeup will only look as dewy as the skin underneath, so be sure to preface your makeup with your skincare routine and give it plenty of time to dry before going in with complexion products. Then, to adequately brighten your skin, illuminate under your eyes with the Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Corrector for Eyes ($70). The liquid concealer has a brush tip that applies beautifully and blends easily.

White Lids


For a light, fresh makeup look for the day, consider a shimmery white statement eye, like the one Wolff created on model Sydney Harper above.

Coral Pout


Brushed-up brows, a neutral lid, and a kiss of coral color on your lips can make for the perfect effortless makeup. One of our favorite coral lippies? The Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Rouge Matte ($50) in Ixora Peach Delight.

Gloss Galore


Dress up your favorite peach lipstick with a high-shine gloss. Or, you could rely on the Tarte Maracuja Juicy Plump ($24) in Poppy.

Soft Pink


How dreamy is this soft pink makeup look by Sephora Beauty Director David Razzano? To create the face, he used the Fenty Beauty Bomb Posse Mega Mix + Match Eyeshadow Palette ($34) on the lids, the Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish: Divine Powder Blush ($39) in Divine Rose, and Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer ($20).
