While we all might be feeling the affects of the weather lately (it's raining cats and dogs in Sydney!), there's so much you can enjoy from Winter beauty — darker makeup palettes, stronger brows and pretty accessories. What's not to love? This week, the POPSUGAR editors' have put together their favourite beauty picks, and for a taste of what's inside, think: cheek stains, makeup tools and a divine face cream! Curious? Come check it out.
“I think there’s a cloud following us,” said Joel Edgerton at last night’s cold and wet Sydney premiere of The Great Gatsby. The red carpet was rolled out at the Entertainment Quarter, which was transformed into a Gatsby hub complete with guests decked in their best ’20s-inspired dress, and just like at the Cannes Film Festival last week, the number one accessory was an umbrella.
It was a fitting way for the film’s cast and crew to wrap up their press tour considering they spent months shooting at Fox Studios over 2011 and 2013. Leading man Leonardo DiCaprio had to pull out of the Sydney premiere due to a scheduling conflict, but there was still plenty of star power thanks to Tobey Maguire, a Nina Ricci-clad Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Elizabeth Debicki (in Dior) and filmmaking power couple Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin.
Despite his absence, Leonardo was still a hot conversation topic, as Tobey told us about how important Leo was for getting the movie made. When we asked if he would have taken on the role of narrator Nick Carraway if it weren’t for Leo’s involvement and encouragement, Tobey said, “I don’t think the movie would’ve happened without me, Leo and Baz agreeing to do it. I just don’t think there’s any way it would’ve happened right now, without any one of us. That’s my opinion, but I know that he [Leo] was integral to me as I was to him, and Baz was to us . . . Baz was collaborating with Catherine Martin, and then Craig Pearce early on, but when Leo and I came on, we had our own little triangle there. There was a little circle of trust where we went, ‘OK, let’s move forward in this process together,’ and I think we were all essential to each other at that point.”
In a recent magazine interview, Carey mentioned how lots of her friends had Leo as their pin-up growing up, but that he wasn’t her celebrity crush, so we quizzed her on who her pin-up was. “Do you know, I didn’t really have many pin-ups when I was younger. I didn’t have posters on my wall, but I do remember really liking Michael Schumacher, the Formula One racing driver. Don’t know what that was about!” she said with a laugh.
Rising star Elizabeth, who looked radiant on the red carpet with minimal makeup, said she “pinched myself” going to set every day, and that “in a funny way, when you work with actors you respect so much, it takes a while to normalise and let them be other actors, but it was a really tight-knit cast and very supportive.” And while Elizabeth couldn’t think of any funny off-set stories off the top of her head, fellow Aussie Joel said, “I’d like to think I was like the Australian tourism board, but those guys discovered their own kind of nooks and crannies of Sydney.”
Most of the attention on the night was on the movie’s stars, but local stars were out in force and braving the rain to be among the first in Australia to see the film, including The Voice’s Delta Goodrem, Joel Madden and Darren McMullen, Jesinta Campbell, Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Jack Thompson and Stephanie Rice.

Sometimes it feels like as soon as the weather cools down, our waistline digits go up! It's tempting to eat comforting food now more than ever, but if you're headed out for lunch, there's a few things you can do to save calories. Ministry of Wellbeing personal trainer, Blake Worrall-Thompson, takes five popular lunchtime meals and tells us what to swap when ordering.
She might be the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous — and certainly most successful — supermodel of all time, and once we started looking at Gisele Bundchen's editorial career, our wonder and respect for the model/mum/activist/designer/sexy Brazilian only grew. The 32-year-old was discovered at age 13 in a Brazilian shopping mall and went on to become the world's richest supermodel after countless editorials, ad campaigns, and a lucrative stint as a Victoria's Secret Angel. If we thought we might tire of her insanely long, lean body and sun-kissed features, we were wrong. Gisele became a mum in 2010, and thanks to some tummy-covering shoots of late may potentially is pregant again with her second child to hubby Tom Brady. In honour of her being the only model on Forbes magazine's list of 100 of "The World's Most Powerful Women" (for the second consecutive year no less), we put together a serious collection of some her most memorable editorials, beginning with her early days.

We're well and truly in the thick of things at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. Things kicked off with stars including French beauty Audrey Tatou, Emma Watson and Carey Mulligan hitting the red carpet, but since then we've been beauty snooping everyone from Cara Delevingne and Jessica Chastain to Megan Gale, her fellow L'Oréal Paris ambassador Barbara Palvin, and more. We'll be updating the Cannes Film Festival beauty looks as the photos come to hand but for now, click, click. . .
The Great Gatsby premiere landed in Australia last night at Sydney's Entertainment Quarter. Leading stars Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Debicki were in attendance, along with local celebrities Delta Goodrem, Stephanie Rice and Jesinta Campbell. Click through to see the beauty looks, guests were asked to dress with a hint of '20s...
The mornings are getting colder and colder, but don't let that keep you from your morning run. Long-sleeved tops or hoodies that extend over the hands and thumbs will help keep you toasty and warm. Here's 10 we like and think you might, too.
If you're looking for street style inspiration this Winter, then look no further than the They All Hate Us girls. We interviewed Elle about her beauty must-haves, and then went inside her wardrobe. Now, it's time to snoop all things Tash! Possibly the most stylish mum in Sydney, the head buyer has brunette locks to die for and a very earthy, beauty look. Which we fully endorse. Ready, steady. . .
If you've ever rocked up to work following an early-morning workout and your gym gear has either soaked through your bag, or is following you around with a not-so-yummy smell, then you need a wet bag. A light, foldable, zip-lock bag to hold your sweaty workout clothes, it won't take up any extra room and doesn't weigh much — it'll simply keep things dry and smelling fresh! We love this Morrocon Nights version from Itzy Ritzy Store.
