keira-knightley-10262011.jpgKeira Knightley hit the red carpet recently with her eye lashes in full effect. Every single lash, top and bottom was present and accounted for and decked out in mascara. The dramatic effect was stunning and reminded me that your lower lashes can make an impact, too.

The trick is to use the right mascara. This is where Clinique’s Bottom Lash Mascara comes in handy. The super small wand makes getting those pesky lower lashes a cinch and the look is high impact and super dramatic! Get Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara for $10 from Nordstrom.com.
Easy, free, flowing locks are all the rage on the red carpet as of late! We’ve been noticing tons of starlets letting their curls down and fly free in the wind—or, maybe not so free, since they’re sure to be using hairspray to keep every strand in place. But we’re totally in love with this new hair trend—it’s fun, it’s chic, and it has an elegance about it that we’re just dying to try ourselves.

Bangs are the hottest hair accessory around, the question is always how low (or high) will you go! This past week, Mena Suvari, Nicole Richie and Eve popped up at red carpet events rocking various lengths of bangs. I prefer Eve’s long swept to the side bangs, but no matter your preference, there are many ways you can go about achieving this popular style. 

There are several things to consider before running to your stylist and asking for bangs:
  • They take a while to grow back so choose carefully.
  • They require a bit of styling … I’m willing to bet Mena, Nicole and Eve’s stylists spent quite a bit of time with a brush and dryer to get them just right!
  • Bangs that hit at eye level can be a nuisance as they can fall in eyes easily.
My sage advice is simple, dare to change things up and just remember, it’s hair and it will always grow back.
Chloe-Moretz-High-Bun.jpgThe topknot was one of the big trends seen on the runways for Spring 2012. Luckily, it’s making its way to Hollywood much sooner than six months from now, as evidenced in this super high version from the adorable Chloe Moretz. For Elle’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute this week, hairstylist Gregory Russell was inspired by Chloe’s white structured dress and created a clean style with side bangs and a high textured knot.

To achieve this look, Gregory first sectioned out Chloe’s bangs and then slicked her hair into a high ponytail with Magic Move Medium Wax. He then back-combed the ponytail, twisted it and pinned it up before blowing out and setting the bangs into the ponytail. To finish and set the look, Gregory used Frederic Fekkai Brushable Hair Spray.

We’re loving the drama of the hair, especially teamed with Chloe’s simple eye makeup, rosy cheeks and pale pink lips.

Bar-Rafaeli-Star-Style.jpgTruth be told, we think Bar Refaeli is one of the most gorgeous creatures on the planet. So it’s no surprise that we’re totally loving her fresh-faced glow at the 2011 Whitney Museum of American Art Studio Afterparty. Her glowing skin was complemented by a touch of black eyeliner and a glossy pink pout. Here’s how to get the look.
