How-to: “There’s a fine line between hair that looks slick and greasy, but Anne Hathaway’s side-parted style has just enough shine to appear sophisticated and modern,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Rub a pee-size amount of product into your hands and apply on clean, dry hair from roots to ends.”
How-to: “A goofproof way to create a smoky eye is to use a gel or cream-based liner and shadow,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Rim your upper and lower lash lines with a black pencil and then blend a deep gray or black shadow with your finger from your lashes to your creases.”
How-to: “The secret to this look is a well-sharpened, waterproof or longwear black pencil liner,” says Beauty Director Alexandra Parnass. “Anything else will disappear, as you’ve really got to put the liner inside your waterline for the dramatic effect. Pull down slightly on your lower lid so you don’t stick yourself in the eyeball.”
How-to: “A retro-looking lined eye looks glamorous yet modern for evening,” explains beauty director Alexandra Parnass. “If you’re inexperienced with liquid liners, choose a gel version instead, which is easier to control. Line along your entire lash line, flicking out at the ends toward your temples. Major mascara and red lipstick complete the look.”
How to: “Hot rollers are the key for glamourous waves. Create a side part then wrap rollers around your hair in sections,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Ceramic-coated versions will protect your hair from heat and prevent frizz all night. Finish with a light-hold hairspray to keep your curls intact.”
How to: “Chocolate brown lids are one of the biggest trends for the upcoming fall season. To achieve the look blend a powder brown shadow across your lids, stopping at the creases. Finish by rimming a black eye liner along your upper and lower lashlines,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince.
How to: “Dark red lips are the easiest way to get glamorous for a big night out. Camilla Belle, Kate Bosworth and Lana del Ray all got the look spot-on at the Met ball – a perfectly lined, lipsticked pout (no gloss, please) with a defined brow and porcelain skin. Shiny locks pulled back tightly or left down in smooth waves complete the look. Remember: red lips + big hair is NOT chic,” explains Alexandra Parnass.
How-to: “A pop of metallic applied to the inner corners of your eyes provides an instant eye opener. Use a pointed blending brush to apply a silvery white powder shadow or highlighter to the area,” explains beauty editor Jessica Prince.
How-to: “ A clean, braided up-do is a clever way to add not only femininity but also height to your hair. What keeps this look chic and not ‘little-girl’ is Scarlett’s sexy, powerful red pout. This balance is critical for the hair look to work.”
Pretty in Pink
How-to: “Julia’s soft pink cheeks and lips nicely offset her smoky lids. To pull off the look, find a similar (shimmer-free) pink for both areas of your face that flatters your skintone,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Stick to pastels if you’re fair, coral-pinks for medium skin, and berry undertones on darker tones.”
How to: “Exfoliation is the first crucial step to maintaining clear skin from head to toe,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “The easiest way is to use a body wash with exfoliating beads and follow up with moisturizer or body oil. If you tend to breakout, try a scrub with salicylic acid to fight acne.”
How-to: “Even if you’re not genetically blessed with perfect skin like model Doutzen Kroes you can achieve a lit-from-within glow with the right products. Build luminosity by mixing a tiny amount of a light-infused primer into your foundation or tinted moisturizer and apply with a damp sponge for a dewy finish,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince.
How-to: ““What makes this style modern is the side part and unfussy yet polished feel,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Start off with a frizz-busting shine serum for a smooth blowout that will maximize your length, then bring all your hair to one side. Begin braiding at your shoulder and continue until the last two inches and tie with an elastic.”
How-to: “A (fake) tan looks best when your glow is continous on your face, neck, and chest,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Exfoliate and apply a gradual formula (preferably one with anti-aging benefits) evenly to all three areas, which makes it less likely you’ll appear orange or streaky.”
How-to: “You know that major mascara is an instant eye opener. So how to apply it to your lower lash line without getting raccoon eyes? It’s all in the brush and application method,” explains beauty editor Jessica Prince. “The best wands for luxe lower lashes are the smallest. Clinique’s Bottom Lash Mascara is teeny tiny and latches onto fringe you didn’t even know you had. To avoid clumping, gently wipe the brush with a clean tissue, then wiggle it slowly starting at your lash roots. The end result will mimic falsies.”
How-to: “Rooney’s shiny twist topped with an elastic headband looks effortlessly cool. Key tools: a light hold hairspray and a good set of bobby pins. For holding power, tie your hair into a ponytail just above the nape of your neck before wrapping it into a chignon. Finish with hairspray.”
How-to: “Even the fairest skintones can achieve Charlize’s glow with a high quality self tanner,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Since you have to be extra careful when applying tanning products to your face, I recommend a wipe because they’re quick, not messy and pretty much goof-proof. The glow pads by Dr. Dennis Gross go on streak-free and also have exfoliating benefits, which means one less step before bed.”
How-to: “The sooner you begin taking steps against aging, the better,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “A sure way to ward off fine lines, sunspots, and maintain a Bosworth-worthy glow is to wear sunscreen every day — rain or shine.”
How-to: “The trick to Kate’s sexy mane is a clamp-less curling iron,” explains beauty editor Jessica Prince. “To achieve these subtle waves, leave the first few inches of your roots and ends smooth, and begin twisting your hair around your iron starting at your ears. Finish by misting on a light-hold hairspray to keep your strands in place.”
’70’s Inspired Perfection
How-to: “A full face of makeup can be difficult to pull off,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “What makes this Studio 54-esque look fresh and wearable is the use of warmer tones on the eyes (skip the frosted shadows!) and neatness of application. If you’re going to give this a try, be sure your eye pencil is precise (get the liner on your lower lids right in those water lines) and keep your lips looking modern with a red that’s creamy and opaque.”
How-to: “Smooth, glossy locks are easy to achieve with the right tools and products,” says beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Try an ionic heated styling tool to maximize luminosity and finish your look with a lightweight shine-enhancing mist.”
Punchy Pink Pout
How-to: “Bright shades of pink lipstick look best when the rest of your makeup is kept pared down,” explains beauty director Alexandra Parnass. “An opaque, creamy lipstick looks modern now (as opposed to goopy gloss). For staying power, line and fill in your lips with a pencil that matches your natural lip color before you apply the lipstick”.
How-to: “Dark, intense lashes can instantly open up your eyes,” explains beauty editor Jessica Prince. “Start with a lash primer for a boost, then slowly wiggle your mascara wand from roots to tips for the lengthiest, most volumized result.”
