This particular hairstyle can be seen anywhere, including even the most elegant of red carpets. It’s a practical look, which has been all the rage lately, and can be done up for almost any occasion. Take a few pointers from Jennifer López, who opted for the tight bun during the presentation of her award for “Favorite Latin Artist” at the American Music Awards this year.
Red lipstick is a must have for this time of season. Show off your wild and fiery side with cherry red lips, just like that of actress Catherine Siachoque, who stops her enemies in their tracks as the evil Ignacia on the telenovela La casa de al lado (Telemundo).
Although light blends and neutral color makeup are a thing of the summer, much of the style has reached the runways for the fall/winter collections of designers like Valentino, Versace, Burberry and Alexander McQueen. Many of today’s starlets share similar tastes as they have opted for the same look for the red carpet. So is the case for the star of Eva Luna, Blanca Soto, who looked divine with her natural color makeup job.
THE LOW PONYTAIL
The classic ponytail has been popular amongst runway shows for Ralph Lauren, Prada and Balmain. The easy to manage style exudes elegance for any occasion as well, and is also a favored look by many stars including Mexican actress Maite Perroni.
For the end of year festivities, don’t forget to include shades of metallic eyeliner and shadow to your repertoire, which can always add a fierce look to your look. Sonya Smith, for example, put aside the good girl persona she is so used to on-screen for a more modern and bold look using metallic eyeliner. If you do go this route, we recommend only applying on the edges of your eyelid just below and above the lashes as well as the inner corner of the eye.
From precious gem stone diadems to the simplest of headbands, runway shows from the house of Valentino, Nina Ricci, Prada, Chanel and Rodarte were fully outfitted with a range of hair accessories. Young actress Danna Paola, who stole the hearts of viewers on the telenovela drama Atrévete a soñar (Dare to Dream), adorned her hair with a basic blue headband.
Berry lips were a big tren on the fall/winter runways. The dark shade has been most popular on the catwalk for brands such as Gucci and Lela Rose, where runway models give a new definition to sensual appeal. Singer Demi Lovato wore berry lips at the Latin Grammy’s.
NUDE LIPSTICK AND EYELINER
One of the most natural and elegant looks on the runway this season was the combination of nude lip shades and lined eyes, as seen here on the stunning Gaby Espino.
Dare to test the feline look for yourself with impeccable eye liner, just like actress Olivia Wilde.
BRIGHT ORANGE LIPS
If you consider yourself a fashionista, your purse should not be without vibrant orange lipstick, which is one of the most popular shades of this season. Brands such as Giles, Jill Sander and Ralph Lauren included this look in their fall/winter shows for 2011 and many celebrities have followed suit, including the beautiful Emma Watson.
