Celebrity Guilty Pleasures That Prove Stars Are Just Like Us

1. Adele Defining eyes with jet black winged liner and lush lashes is a classic look for any formal affair, and exudes pure glamour for a wedding in particular. “This look is simple, clean, and fresh with a nod to the golden era of Hollywood,” said Michael Ashton, who worked with Adele for the Oscars. “It’s polished and current, but also softly elegant and timeless.” To get the chanteuse’s alluring gaze, Ashton highlighted and contoured the sockets with the neutral shades in Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Quad in Boudoir, then extended the lines of the eyes with a thick strip of Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. After “pumping up lashes” with Lancome Hypnose Mascara, Ashton rounded out the look with “decorated but understated lips.” He colored in the pout with the soft pink Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Lip Pencil in Burnt Rose, then finger-pressed Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in Blush onto the lips before finally topping them off with a kiss of the shimmery Sisley Phyto-Lip Star Brillance Extreme in White Diamond.

Amanda Seyfried The actress’s ethereal beauty, with lilac shadow and blush-toned lips, is perfectly suited for pale skin tones, according to Monika Blunder, the makeup artist behind the Oscars look. “Her dress and skin were so pale that I wanted to give the makeup a little more of a punch, especially around her eyes,” Blunder explained. She buffed the taupe Cle de Peau Beaute Satin Eye Color in 106 and the lavender Satin Eye Color in 108 onto the lids and up into the creases, being sure to concentrate most of the color at the outer corners. For skin that imparted a natural radiance, she tapped Cle de Peau Beaute Luminizing Face Enhancer in 13 onto cheekbones, and swiped the brand’s ballet-pink Enriched Lip Luminizer in 222 over lips for a natural sheen. 3. Anne Hathaway The carnation pink lips and subtly defined eyes “lend itself perfectly to a daytime wedding,” said Kate Lee, the makeup artist behind Hathaway’s Oscars look. “This makeup makes you look every inch the movie star, but still feels comfortable.” For the pretty pink pout, Lee mixed Chanel Rouge Allure in Seduisante with a dab of concealer to create a slightly lighter hue, then she “blended it down on lips to get the perfect delicate shade,” she said.

Yes, awesome!” Tim McGraw “Cheeseburgers. I like everything on them.” Nick Jonas “I dont know if I have a guilty pleasure. Im sort of pretty wide open when it comes to why I like certain things. I love the show ‘Nashville,’ I mean thats a show thats pretty incredible. I dont know if its a guilty pleasure, but I think its great.” Kelly Bensimon “I dont really have a guilty pleasure my life is a guilty pleasure.” Joey Lawrence “Pizza and chocolate chip cookies.” Jewel “Kung-Fu movies.” Rob Lowe “First of all I have a philosophy on guilty pleasures. I really dont believe in them. I think the phrase ‘guilty pleasure’ has done more to lower the bar of entertainment than anything that I can imagine. I think if its guilty, then theres a good reason youre feeling guilty. And it probably means you shouldnt watch it. Like Im not a ‘Sharkadoo,’ ‘Sharknado,’ whatever guy.

Celebrity chef dabbles in Scotch

Even though he keeps busy running 14 restaurants around the globe, serving a $32 braised rib and foie gras burger, among other dishes, Boulud was actively involved in creating the spirit, working with Dalmore master distiller Richard Paterson on selecting specific barrels to create the final blend, which includes whiskies aged up to 18 years. (But its a mistake to call the final product a blend since all the whisky in it originates from a single distillery.) I wanted a generous, full-bodied whisky, but with aromas of caramel and also some candied orange and toasted praline, says Boulud. Um, who says Frenchmen drink only Cognac?
