Exclusive Photo Shoot

Heating up the TV lineup is Eva LaRue who plays lab/field investigator Natalia Boa Vista on CBS’ CSI: Miami. The Emmy-nominated actress may have had her fair share of haircolor changes and style switches, but we’ll always look to Eva for style inspiration because, let’s face it, she’s got great hair! Here, the gorgeous star takes a break from filming her hit television show for an exclusive photo shoot with Sophisticate’s. “It’s not curly, and it’s not straight,” Eva tells us about her stunning tresses. “My hair is naturally kinky in an awkward way that is just pretty.”




Sarah Hyland

Celebrity Chat

Playing Haley on ABC’s Modern Family, Sarah Hyland knows a thing or two about getting gorgeous for the spotlight. Here, the young actress shares all of her mane musts with Sophisticate’s

Sarah Hyland

“I prefer a wavy style—it’s easier to deal with than curly hair.”

“I don’t really do my hair ever. I just let it air-dry and then let it be.”

Sarah Hyland

“When I was 12 and playing Annie, I had to color my hair red!”

“My skin tone and eyebrows won’t allow me to go blonde so I never thought about it.”



Backstage Pass
Bongo Hires A Reality TV Bombshell

Audrina Patridge is the Bongo girl for a second season, and we can see why the brand brought the reality star back! Here, celebrity makeup artist Joanna Schlip reveals the secrets behind the star’s sizzling look…


  • Audrina’s Bongo shoot makeup was inspired by the Bond girl version of Raquel Welch, particularly the moment when she’s just stepped out of the water and is glistening.
  • A great makeup look always starts with the skin. I applied La Mer eye balm, mist and lotion to Audrina’s face and let it sink in before applying Armani Silk Luminous foundation.
  • A smokey eye doesn’t have to be black. I applied a sandy shade of Obsessive Compulsive eyeshadow on Audrina’s lid an smudged Korres eyeshadow in a copper tone in her creases and along her lash line.
  • To get Audrina’s shiny, sexy lip look I skipped the lip liner, laid down M.A.C. lipstick in Blankety and topped it off with a coat of M.A.C. lipglass in Revealing.
