Celebrity Style Spotlight :: New Mom (again!) Nicole Richie

I find actress/jewelry designer/mom of two, Nicole Richie, fascinating mainly because of her fantastic bohemian chic style but also because of her signature dark eyes and nude lips she wears so well! So I was super intrigued to see on my People.com daily email updates that she had had her second child (a boy, Sparrow- guess that goes/rhymes with Harlow, her first little girl!) but that the website had also included a style transformation of Richie through the years (see below).

In my opinion, the pint sized female is one of the most fashionable women in Hollywood

with a cool jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960, to boot. The aesthetic of the line screams of her personal sense of style at shockingly affordable prices. The tiger eye ring to the right is from her line and is only $48 bucks!

Check out Nicole Richie's evolution of hair and makeup looks through the years on People.com's website. Click on my link above and then click on the play arrow on the video to watch her dramatic changes she has made to her look. It shows her amazing transformations through the years in a quick little video so it will literally take 30 seconds to watch.

If you want Nicole's signature makeup look, you really only need two products:

1. Dark liquid liner. Don't be afraid to draw on the winged cat-eye look with a black liquid liner pen like MAC's Penultimate Liner in Rapidblack ($16.50) for a precise carbon black line. And make it a thick line by drawing right along the lash line first. Then go back over the line right on top of the original line to create the illusion of a thicker lash line.

2. Gold lip gloss. This is an easy color for ALL of us to carry off because a lip gloss with gold in it immediately perks up any pasty pale skin or is very complimentary to dark complexions all year round. Try Clinique's Long Last Glosswear in "Goldspun" ($14) which is a

champagney-gold in a formula that has recently won Allure Magazine's Editor's Choice Award, and an award from me! I love this stuff, it really does have good staying powder for a gloss.

So congratulations to Mrs. Richie-Madden on the new bundle of joy. I'm sure you will find new inspiration through your little guy and please pass on your knack for exquisite makeup application to Harlow when she gets old enough to enjoy makeup!

She is definitely pint sized and has come such a long way since "The Simple Life"! I will have to check out her jewelry line, what are the price points? It looks super cute!

The prices on her jewelry seem very reasonable, anywhere from the 40 dollar range into the hundreds depending on the piece. It's sold online at Kitson.com and a few other hip and trendy specialty store websites.
