Christian Louboutin Is Stepping into the Beauty World

I’ve long dreamed of owning a shiny new pair of Louboutin black patent platform heels. Unfortunately, my shoe budget puts me on the low end of the Payless-to-couture spectrum, but now I can finally hope to get a little piece of Louboutin for myself. As WWD reports, Christian Louboutin is planning to launch a full beauty line in late 2013.

My Trip to the Tonys: You’ve Got Male

Once a week, Birchbox’s resident yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will give us girls some insight into his world in You’ve Got Male. Whether he’s giving his expertise on skincare (boys need advice, too!) or highlighting his new favorite grooming trend, this guy has got taste—so we’re lucky he’s on staff and willing to share.

Although my usual function is to write about men’s grooming for You’ve Got Male, I decided to take a quick departure this week and recount a very exciting experience I had on Sunday evening. About a month ago, my best friend, Nikki M. James, was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for her incredible job in the riotous The Book of Mormon. The awards ceremony was Sunday night and I was thrilled to be one of her guests at the ceremony. Here’s the really good news: SHE WON! It was a night I will never forget. It was filled with anxiety, laughter, smiles, and tears. Plus, during her acceptance speech, there was a reaction shot of me in the audience—my network TV debut! I had a blast helping her get ready in her hotel suite. Here are some of the highlights.

The Outfit: She wore a stunning strapless red gown by Giambattista Valli and black crystal encrusted pumps by Christian Louboutin. Diamond bracelet, ring, and earrings from Damiani and clutch by Kotur. Could you just die?

The Makeup: The amazing Kyra Dorman created her sophisticated, sexy, and fresh look. She used some Birchbox faves—three shades of Stila Eye Shadow to create the smokey eye and NARS Blush in Orgasm. (We have the Illuminator!) 

Fun tip: For the shimmery shadows, Kyra used Stila #9 All Over Blend Brush to apply the color lightly and avoid a metallic look.

Above are some photos from before, during, and after the process. Stunning no matter what, she’s a true star! Make sure to remember her name…and run, don’t walk to see The Book of Mormon on Broadway.
