Lauren Conrad gray nails.jpg
Last Fall, Chanel teased fashionistas and lacquer junkies with peaks at its new shade: Particuliere. It caused frenzies, really, it did. The dove, taupey gray nail trend sailed into spring effortlessly shortly after. Now, as the trend continues into fall 2010, it has evolved into a cooler, heather gray.

Starlets such as Lauren Conrad (above), Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Szohr and Sienna Miller have been sporting the cement and smoke hues as of late. This neutral may not sound uber exciting at first mention, but trust us, it’s the perfect complement to all the whites and brights you’ll be squeezing out of your summer wardrobe in the next few weeks, as well as the richer, darker shades that perpetuate fall fashions. 

Look for steely shades (we love any with slight purple undertones), that are glossy. Or pair this trend with the metallic trend to get the best of both worlds.

The Teen Choice Awards are always fun for celebs; being the teen sister of those big awards shows, they’re way more relaxed and stars are free to be a bit more playful with their looks. A funky pony or bright blue lip go a long way here,  much to the delight of many fashion trendsetters watching along.

Tonight was no exception. Some of young Hollywood’s finest were out in full force, and here are some of our favorite looks:

katarina.jpgKatarina Graham took a chance with bold pink lips and jewels accenting her eyes. She accented her fun, funky look with an edgy side swept hair style.

kristenbell.jpgEverybody’s favorite Cali-girl Kristen Bell kept it fresh faced and low key, down to her windblown ponytail. She added a hint of glam with a subtle cat eye and loads of gorgeous lashes.

 Lucy Hale is a natural beauty, and played that up with gorgeous waves, tawny skin, and rosy cheeks, offset by heavily lined eyes.

Do you agree with our picks? Who was your fave?
fc7aadedaae70fdd_emma-new-haircut.jpgPerhaps the biggest news in beauty yesterday was the reveal of Emma Watson’s daring new hair. The Harry Potter star traded her long butterscotch locks for a Mia Farrow-esque pixie crop.

The young actress told “The stylist [Rodney Cutler of NYC’s Cutler Salon] just grabbed the back of my hair and took a whole ponytail of hair out.” She then posted a note to fans on her twitter wall regarding the love-it-or-hate-it debate, saying: “Feels incredible. I love it. I’ve wanted to do this for years and years; it’s the most liberating thing ever.”

She’s not the only celeb going short lately. What do you think of the new look?

Bold eyes on starlets and Hollywood sweethearts is certainly nothing new, but how they wear these deep or bright shadows and liners is something anyone should take note of when replicating.

We got the scoop from trained makeup artist Claudia Lamos-Vargas and got her top tips on how to pull off a bold, vibrant eye without looking overdone or clownish, and how to make it last all night.

1. Keep it simple: “When your eyes are heavy on makeup, never go with a bright lip or too much blush or bronzer. A nude lipstick, or a pale neutral gloss works perfectly to play up your eyes to the fullest.”

2. All about the basics: “Before applying any of your eye makeup, always prep the area with your foundation, and set it with powder. This base should be the perfect canvas!”

3. Start small: “It takes a certain amount of courage to pull off a vibrant, statement eye. If you want to play with a bold look or color, but aren’t ready for the full effect, try using a pigment or cream shadow as an eyeliner for that pop of color, and keep the rest of your look simple and demure.” 

Multi-colored nails are not a new trend, but lately we’ve been seeing a lot of brights paired with gold fourth fingers…. and we’re loving the trend!

multibling.bmpTeen star Vanessa Hudgens sported a combo of turquoise and gold at Comic Con this past weekend, but feel free to try this with any color you like. You can even switch up the gold with silver, or bronze.

To make it work, make sure the shade you choose is a creme with no shimmer or glitter (save the gilding for your ring finger). The more bling, the better!

What do you think? Will you try this trend?
