Beauty Trend Spotting Bold Brows

If the eyes are the windows to the soul then your brows are the window treatments. The way you style your eyebrows is just as important as the way you wear your hair. Celebs such as Keira Knightley , Rita Ora, Janelle Monae, and Lily Collins are boycotting the overly plucked look and are rocking standout brows. You can make a statement with your eyebrows as well by following a few simple steps.

Although this trend is all about embracing a thicker shape, brows should be bold not messy, so you’ll need to tweeze any stray strands. Before you pick up the tweezers start by moisturizing your brows. This softens the hair, which will eliminate some of the sting. Your usual facial moisturizer will get the job done, such as Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream.

Now it’s time to fill in any sparse areas. Pencils can create a waxy residue that leaves eyebrows looking like an art project. Instead, opt for a powder that matches your brow natural color and an angular brush to create hair-like strokes. Focus the pigment on the ends of your brows and fade the color as you work way inward. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes has multiple shades and the right tools to get the job done.

Next, tidy things up using a concealer. Go one shade lighter underneath your brows and the same shade as your complexion on the top. Complete your look with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, which gives you two shades of concealer.

Finally, lock hairs in place using a clear brow gel. Try Ulta Eye Brow Gel to lock your bold brows in place.

Do you think bold brows are here to stay, or a fad that will be gone tomorrow?

Hair Trend Spotting Chic Bobs

Bobs have been extremely popular in Hollywood for quite a few months now, and never has that been more apparent than at Tuesday’s Stand Up For Cancer event, when everyone from host Reese Witherspoon to attendees Emma Roberts, Lily Collins and Jessica Alba arrived with their own version of the season’s hottest hairstyle.

The best part is how truly versatile this chic cut can be. To get Reese’s slightly messy-with-bangs version, use a texturizing product such as Blow Pro Beach Blow Texturizing Mist, and create subtle waves with a curling wand, such as Conair Infiniti Curling Wand Styler.

For Emma’s sleek and smooth version, blow dry with a paddle brush, and use a glossing product like John Frieda Frizz-Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist.

And to get Lily’s smooth on top, but messy on the bottom look, combine the two techniques: Keep the top smooth, but add a texturizing product from half way down the shaft to the ends of the hair, and then after creating waves, comb through them with a wide-tooth comb to give the hair a slightly ‘undone’ look. Finish it off with a flexible hold hairspray.

Get The Look Sara Bareilles’ 2014 Grammy Awards Textured Braids

Sara Bareilles, known for her beautiful voice and lyrical impact, donned no-fuss, textured tresses at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

Celebrity hair stylist Rolando Beauchamp described the look as “rough, beautiful hair that pulled her face up and back.”

Beauchamp prepped the hair first, using Garnier Fructis Style Deconstructed Beach Chic Texturizing Spray on Sara’s damp hair. In order to create the texture, he rough-dried the strands. When the hair was dry, he made two loose cornrow braids from the front to the back of her head.

He used a 1 1/4 inch curling iron on the rest of the hair; wrapping around just the ends. Using a bit of Garnier Fructis Style Deconstructed Move It Manipulating Gel, he worked it into Sara’s hair, section by section. This created more of a “slightly slept-in” look.

To set the hair, he gave it a few spritzes of Garnier Fructis Style Extreme Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray.

The result? Effortless waves and braids to compliment her feminine Blumarine gown.

20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - ArrivalsStylists and makeup artists alike seem to be against the matchy-matchy trend, but Elisabeth Moss may have just proved them wrong. With bold red lips to complement her bold red Michael Kors gown, Elisabeth stepped out looking gorgeous (and not the least bit matchy-matchy).

Celebrity makeup artist, Jenn Streicher for Maybelline New York, was inspired by the city of love. “When Elisabeth stepped into her dress, elegance, grace and Paris all came to mind!” says Streicher.

Streicher prepped Elisabeth’s skin with Hourglass No 28 Primer Serum, then sponged on Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation #5 and blended outwards. The liquid foundation was set with the Maybelline New York Dream Wonder Powder, which was applied on Elisabeth’s nose, forehead, and chin.

Elisabeth’s cheeks were brought to life with Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Glaze in Just-Pinched Pink.

For her eyes, Streicher kept it simple as not to clash with the lip color. She swept Maybelline New York Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded over her lids and also along her bottom lash line. She completed the eye look with a quick flick of Lancome Liner Design in Black Fishnets.

Next was Elisabeth’s pout, which was dressed up in Maybelline New York Color Elixir Lip Color in Signature Scarlet. Streicher applied extra product onto the middle of her mouth for more definition.

Elisabeth carried both the Maybelline powder and lip colour in her clutch throughout the night for touch-ups.
