Modern Family’s Ariel Winter, 18, has nothing to hide. In fact, at Saturday’s SAG Awards, the actress wore a stunning black lace gown from Romona KeveŽa. By Sunday, she had received a barrage of negative comments regarding the appearance of a scar emerging from the side of her breast. After the on-line bullying, Winter took to Twitter, posting, “Guys there is a reason I didn’t make an effort to cover up my scars! They are part of me and I’m not ashamed of them at all. :)”
In June Winter had undergone breast reduction surgery, taking her down from a 32F to a 34D. She recently admitted to People, “Being a 5-ft.-tall girl and having extremely large breasts is really ostracizing and excruciatingly painful” adding, “It was an instant weight lifted off my chest – both literally and figuratively.”
Modern Family’s Julie Bowen wowed us on the red carpet with her Spring Kaufmanfranco Crystal/Onyx Deep V gown. Celebrity makeup artist, Heather Currie, was inspired by Bowen’s brilliant jewels when creating her look. After priming Bowen’s skin with Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and applying foundation, “I used the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush in Vibrant to add a ‘flushed’ look to the skin which played nicely with the jewelry Julie was wearing,” Currie said.
For Bowen’s eyes, Currie used a combination of eye pencil and eye shadow on Julie’s eyes. “I started with the Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Pencil in Spiced Chocolate and smudged it along the lash line. Next, l added shadow from the Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Built-in Primer palettes in Cool Plum and applied it to the entire lid. Lastly, I added the highlighter from the Long Wear Eye Shadow + Built-in Primer palettes in in Classic Nude just to the inner corner of the eye.”
Currie maintained the same flushed look to Julie’s lips as she did with her cheeks by using Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Soft Raspberry.
Catherine Zeta-Jones, 46, has always been admired for her lovely locks and radiant skin. Recently, the Welsh beauty shared her favorite beauty secret: Argan oil! During a web chat, the actress explained that her work schedule has taken a toll on her typically dewy complexion. “I’m finding, just from travelling from New York and being in heated hotel rooms, my skin feels like a Walker’s crisp at the moment, but I’ve been using some Argan oil just to saturate my skin at night, so it has some nourishment as I sleep, to start the day a little bit more hydrated,” she confessed.
In Morocco, where the Argan tree is naturally found, the oil’s amazing curative properties have been revered for centuries. In fact, in the southern regions of the country, pure Argan oil is celebrated for everything from soothing skin redness to curing rheumatism. “Recent scientific studies have showed benefits of Argan oil has antimicrobial properties, and can be used in treating damaged skin and inflammation,” said Majda Alaoui Sosso, director of one of Morocco’s oil cooperatives. The medical community calls pure Argan oil a “superfood,” as it contains “healthier” omega 3s than olive oil, more vitamin E than sweet almond oil, and features a myriad of cancer-fighting antioxidants. Culinary Argan oil has been proven to help to lower cholesterol, improve circulation, stabilize blood sugar, strengthen the body’s immune system, and ease pain from rheumatism and arthritis.
But is the natural elixir Catherine’s only beauty secret? “I think happiness is the best tonic for keeping us youthful. Being happy with who you are inside radiates on the outside,” she added.
