Beauty buzz! Update your look with a few easy to do tricks of the trade.If you try one new hairstyle this fall – and we think you should! – make it a messy top knot. It’s the perfect “I just through my hair up and happened to look fabulous” look, that’s actually as easy to do as it looks! It’s literally as simple as 1, 2, 3:
1. Just flip your head over to get a super-high ponytail on top of your head, secured with a simple elastic band.
2. Wrap your hair loosely around the base of the pony tail and secure with bobby pins (makes sure to use bobby pins that match your hair color)
3. Loosen some strands around your hairline to finish off the carefree look, and voila!
If you’re not quite ready to adorn the top of your head, a low bun looks equally chic and on-trend! Start with a low ponytail and follow instructions for the top knot.Get ready to add some punch to your pucker! Channel your inner bombshell, because this season is all about a matte red lip. So put away your gloss, and get “leap-off-the-page” lips! Feeling a little color shy? Check out this step-by-step video to see How to Wear a Matte Red Lip and master this totally wearable and on-trend look.And finally, the Cat Eyes you won’t need nine lives to do! It’s surprisingly easy to get this runway ready look, and takes way less makeup than the smoky eye of season’s past … that means less room for error! We love Cosmopolitan’s simple spin on how to master the cat eye.1. After applying a light layer of eye shadow primer or foundation to hold onto the color, gently pull your lid upward to line the inner rim with a few coats of black waterproof pencil, and do the same on the inner rim of the lower lash line.
2. Then line the skin directly above your lash line and blend color with an angled brush.
3. Liquid liner is the secret ingredient in the perfect cat eye! Layer the liquid over the pencil to dry and lock in that layer of color.
4. Now it’s time to wing-out! With your eye closed, trace a finger along the crease of your upper lid, moving outward until it meets the bony part of your eye. Mark that spot with a dot of liquid liner.
5. Place the tip of the liquid-liner pen on the dot, and drag it down into the outer corner of your eye, thickening the line as you go (so the outer edge is the thinnest point).
6. Once the liner dries, dab a cream colored shadow on your lid, a metallic version on the area just above your crease and inner corner, and finish with two coats of black mascara.
