Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s Vintage Wedding Favors


We found a great favor idea from Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s recent fairytale wedding in Malibu.

Since Dewan loves vintage-inspirations, the couple filled a basket with vintage hankies for the woman to use to dry their “tears of joy,” blogged celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss, who helped to plan their big day. Dewan’s mother sent in most of the hankies, and Weiss confessed that she found several of the rest of the fabrics on eBay for cheap. A few flower heads were thrown in for an elegant touch. We just love this idea, and now we’re thinking of all the other ways a bride could potentially use a vintage handkerchief as wedding décor: You could accent centerpieces or bouquets with them, or even tuck them into the groomsman’s suit jackets. The possibilities are endless, and vintage weddings are just so hot right now.

Get Anne Hathaway’s Golden Globe Look: Classic Beauty

Cwb_anne_hathaway_beauty If you caught last night's Golden Globe Awards, we don't have to tell you how stunning Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway looked when she hit the red carpet.  Hathaway wore a royal blue silk gazar gown from Giorgio Armani Prive embroidered with Swarvoksi Crystals. She accented her look with vintage diamond and sapphire earrings and dramatic smoky eyes. The Rachel Getting Married star stood out as a true statement of class and sophistication last night.  (Her stylists should be proud!)

Wearing a gown that's heavy on the bling for your wedding day? Anne's classic beauty look from last night's affair might be a winning choice for you. When your dress does all the talking, you don't want your eyes and lips to overshadow your overall effect. The actress is a Lancome ambassador, and celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee decided to share some tips with us on how to achieve this gorgeous look for yourself.

Eyes: After applying a dark liner to the lash base, a small brush was used to blend a dark eye shadow upwards from the lash line. Lee applied Chanel Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Slate was applied to the crease and along the lower lash line, after which her lashes were curled and painted with several layers of Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir.  Lee chose Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre in Brunet to add definition to Anne's brows, and Lancôme Effacernes Concealer in Ivoir for under-eye coverage.

Blush: To create Anne's well-sculpted cheek bones, Lee, used Chanel Powder Blush in Nude then applied Lancôme Absolue Powder in Absolute Peche to the top of the cheek bones and along the jaw.

Lips: To add a dark raspberry stain to her lips, Lee used a neutral lip liner that was similar to Anne's natural lip color.  Afterwards, spread on a layer of Chanel Hydrabase Lipstick in Lotus Rouge.  To avoid a shiny mess, Lee used Chanel Poudre Cristalline  on Anne's forehead, and a quick spritz of Lancome Magnifique.

Be A DIY Wedding Makeup Artist

Cwb_stila_smoky_eye_palette I'm not great when it comes to liquid eyeliner (just ask my drycleaner). As a matter of fact, I kind of suck when it comes to any and all makeup application and plan on paying someone to do it for me on my wedding day (just to ensure that I don't end up looking like the Bride of Frankenstein). Thankfully, it's Stila to the rescue. The cosmetic company (celebrity fans include Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba) has come up with a chatty new eye pallette that literally tells you, step-by-step, how to make your eyes pop. The talking eye palette ($40), is actually an eye makeup case with a microchip. Simply press the button and get a lesson in Makeup 101. The one minute recorded tutorial includes application tips, product suggestions, and tool advice.

Now, I'm not saying I'm ready to give up the idea of my own makeup artist on my wedding day, but given my ability to cry at the drop of a pin, I'm pretty sure I'll be needing this baby five seconds after I say "I do."
