Emma Watson has a new Lancome commercial for the fragrance, Tresor Midnight Paris. The ad is rather sweet, and it leaves us with the impression that it will have a sequel. It depicts the quintessential story of boy meets girl, then chases after her upon seeing her again. Who knows? Maybe they’ll fall in love in Part 2.

Natalie Portman is the face of Christian Dior’s Diorskin Forever. The actress stars in the campaign for the new foundation for the brand. She also headed the Miss Dior Cherie perfume ads earlier this year. Her makeup is flawless, in a nude color palette similar to her gorgeous gown. A strong brow framed her face, and anchored this close-up shot.

Tom Ford Beauty Collection has a new campaign starring model Lara Stone alongside the designer himself. She sports dramatic eye makeup in the ads, it was all applied with a nod to the 1970′s. Her green eye shadow is an update on the infamous blue brow. The line showcases its versatility with bold and neutral color palettes. These images have an alluring quality, I like that she focuses on the camera as he focuses on her.

Jessica Biel stars in another Revlon television ad, but this time she is accompanied by Pharrell Williams. This 60-second black-and-white spot has the element of romance as well as sensuality. It’s an ode to the new Grow Luscious Pumping Mascara. The singer gave us a rendition of “Hypnoteyzed.” Darren Aronofsky directed the commercial, and it shows, the cinematic quality is palpable.

Lancome’s new Color Design campaign stars Daria Werbowy, Arlenis Sosa and Elettra Wiedemann respectively. This eye-catching ad is all about the bright hues in both the wardrobe and cosmetics. Their eyes are made-up in intense blue, purple and green. Photographer Mario Testino captured the ladies in a kind of ’girl’s night out’ celebration. Amazingly, makeup does have the ability to transform your mood from the outside and move inward.

January Jones is the cover of Allure magazine’s June 2011 issue. The “Mad Men” actress’ beauty shot revealed piercing blue eyes and bold red lips. Her navy top and the soft background colors complemented her skin tone. Inside she posed in edgier looks that were a sharp contrast to a more reserved cover. The editorial shows her strong and in control in sexy high heels and platforms.

Isabeli Fontana is the face of Estee Lauder’s Sensuos Nude fragrance campaign. She poses on a large rock that rests on the sand, it’s reminiscent of an evening on the beach as the sun sets. The ad is a mix of earthy and sensuality, hence the name. Even the brown and pink colors have a natural element.

Givenchy Beauty has given a preview of its Fall 2011 campaign, and it spells drama. The lips are a bold berry and the eyes are exaggerated and dark. This ad is all about high contrast, the model’s hair is jet black against her pale skin. I also appreciate the juxtaposition of her white lace blouse alongside her almost goth-like makeup application.

Estee Lauder unveiled its Women in Beauty campaign featuring models Joan Smalls, Constance Jablonski and Liu Wen. It was shot by photographer Craig McDean. The diverse ad reflects the beauty in the world today, it comes in all colors and ethnicities. These ladies are lovely representatives of the brand. Their neutral makeup flatters instead of cover-up, the natural look in the image gives this campaign credibility. Both the ads and products will be available starting in June 2011.

Emma Watson was recently named the new face of Lancome. The actress is already hard at work on her ad campaign for the beauty giant. Here she is seen prepping for her close-up. She is wearing a structured blazer in a pale pink over a white button-up shirt and a pair of lace shorts. Emma accessorized with a nude pair of platform pumps with ankle straps, a black belt and a loosely knotted tie. Her short hair-cut perfectly complemented this look; her boyish cut against a pink jacket and lace shorts was a good mix of the masculine and feminine.
