How to get pumped-up lashes à la Megan Fox, and more here:
GLAMOROUS MAKEUP FOR HALLOWEEN — Halloween is just days away! But if you’re still clueless over what costume you’ll don, don’t fret: A bold makeup look can eliminate the stress of pulling together clothes and accessories at the last minute. Here, we show you how to morph into Jem, Cleopatra, and Lucy Ricardo—Holograms, Mark Antony, and Ricky optional.
When Yves Saint Laurent said, “Fashions fade; style is eternal,” he might not have been talking about beachy waves, but the sentiment holds. Long, windswept strands, which gained steam in the ’90s, are now ubiquitous, from the office to the runway. “Beachy hair should carry over from day to night, so it can’t be such a mess that you can’t wear it to a cocktail party,” says hairstylist Ashley Javier. “Aim for a rougher, edgier version of Veronica Lake curls.”
STREET CHIC: PARIS — Orange nails, magenta lips, and neon blue shadow are sure to stop traffic, wherever she’s headed.
“I’m both young and old for my age. My mom told me, ‘Don’t grow up too quickly; once you’re an adult, you’re always an adult.’”
“Don’t get high off praises, and don’t get too low on critiques.”
Four hours before Marc Jacobs’ 8 PM show and the backstage area was already a whirlwind of activity—Guido, Redken’s creative consultant, was particularly busy: His team had to craft several different “high-maintenance” hairstyles on 60 models. “There are lots of hairdos—I’m in a major rush,” he said. “There are four looks, all based in the ’70s and ’30s—finger waves and frizz all side-parted with lovely big hats and flowers in the hair. It’s wavy and glamorous.”
Makeup was equally captivating: “We’re going for a ’70s glam look inspired by girls like Anjelica Huston, Donna Mitchell, and Pat Cleveland,” said François Nars, who tempered the olive “high-gloss eye” and chocolate-purple lip with sheer skin (“Its transparency gives the face a modern touch and doesn’t make the makeup appear too heavy”).
So what does model Siri Tollerød (pictured above right) think of the bold hair-and-makeup combo? “It’s fun! I feel very chic wearing it,” she says, though she admits she’d tweak the look for real-life. “If I wore the hairstyle I wouldn’t wear any makeup with it because it would feel like, va-voom, here I am! If I just did the makeup, I’d probably make the eyes and lips less dark.”
Remember hair wraps? Hardly a sixth grade day went by that a girl didn’t show up to school with a strand of hair wrapped in colorful string. Whether she’d been to Mexico or to the mall it’d peek out from under long hair or stick straight out of of a ponytail until one day it just wasn’t cool anymore.
Fresh’s Brown Sugar Body Polish is the key. You’ll be tempted to rub it all over your body, but stick to your feet (for now). Once they’ve been rubbed and soaked, gently use this Diamencel Diamond Foot buffer.
Then, slather your toes with Bliss’ Foot Patrol and stick them into the bright blue socks that come in the package. Put your feet up for at least ten minutes, then take off the socks and sweep the lotion off your nails with a cotton swab soaked with nail polish remover.
