A Little More Realistic.

Pictures of Freida Pinto have been splashed across countless magazines in jaw-dropping couture. While I doubt many of us can run out and get ourselves a Christian Lacroix gown such as the one Freida wore to the Golden Globes, copying her makeup might be a much more feasible and budget-friendly alternative!

Celebrity makeup artist Jeffrey Paul for Jouer Cosmetics created a glowing makeup look in earthy, muted tones. Here's a little know-how courtesy of Paul, that will help you recreate this look at home.
Face: Paul went with a less is more philosophy. He mixed foundation with concealer and applied it sparingly. The "glow in a bottle" was courtesy of Jouer Creme Highlighter in Champagne which was applied to cheekbones and brow bones.
Eyes: Paul tightlighed along the lashline with Jouer Eye Definer in Vert, a shimmery olive green color. He used Powder Eyeshadow in Amaretto, a shimmery bronzed taupe, along the crease. My two cents would be to pair Amaretto over a softer shade like Pink Champagne, a shimmery soft pink, all over the lids, from lashline to brow bone. Paul applied Jouer Conditioning Mascara in Noir on her top and bottom lashes.
Lips: Paul applied Jouer Mouisturizing Lip Gloss in Monsoon, a glazed deep wine, to add natural-looking color. The golden tone of the coordinating Champagne highlighter played up the natural pinkish color of her lips while the Monsoon gloss provided some drama.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.
