Three Fall Trends to Try Now
Fiercely-browed Jennifer Connelly and Brooke Shields look-alikes of the world beware: This season you're getting some serious competition from celebs like Keira Knightly, and models at such sought after shows as Vera Wang (pictured above) and Marc Jacobs. So follow suit, ditch that threading appointment, and embrace full natural brows.
Tip: Kristie Streicher, a bicoastal brow specialist, who just trademarked the 'feathered brow' offers a few simple steps for getting her signature look. First, tweeze the arches of the brow to open up the eye. Then gently pluck the front and ends, removing only every other hair, for a soft lengthy look. This will give you a good cleanup without removing a lot of hair.
Sleek Straight Center Part
Contrasting this season's oversized proportions in attire, when it comes to hair it's all about a slick middle part. So take a cue from celebs like Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston, as well as the runways at Alexander Wang and Nicole Miller (pictured above), by getting those locks under control and playing up the shine.
Tip: Tim Rogers, a national hair care expert and Creative Director of Living Proof, says great shine starts in the shower, so treat your hair once a week with a good mask. Use a frizz-fighter to maintain a sleek finish, always avoiding oils and products with silicone for a longer lasting look. If you flat iron, use a comb to prepare the hair to get it smooth, with no ridges or bumps.
Thanks to covetable fashion houses like Yves Saint Laurent (pictured above) and Gucci, as well as stylish celebs Emma Stone, Kate Bosworth, and Camilla Belle, merlot mouth is no longer just the result of drinking too many glasses of vino. So get in touch with the lush in you this season and go grappa.
Tip: For those with smaller lips, internationally renowned makeup artist Mickey Williams suggests avoiding anything matte with grey undertones -- go for a warmer shade to get the full-bodied effect.
