NEW YORK — The term "Hollywood beauty connection" used to mean that stars were wearing your makeup. Now, it seems to mean that your makeup is the star — or, at least, one of them.
Celebrity spokesmodels have been makeup’s tie to Hollywood since the early days and the trend really heated up in the last decade, particularly with the introduction of In Style magazine, not to mention all the A-list actresses acting as celebrity pitchwomen for major cosmetics brands. All in all, it’s a trend that’s been a long time coming: In the Eighties, there were even a few short-lived fragrances based on TV characters, such as Forever Krystle, based on the Dynasty character.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
