Try Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in ‘Train Bleu’

or… Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color ‘Deepest Cherry’

7 Fabulous Fall Hairstyles!

Stuck in a hair rut? Here are some great hair trends for the fall. From updos to accessories, you can be sure to find a way to try something different!

1. Sleek Ponys

Bar Refalei and Ciara show the difference in a high and low pony, but both a still simple and chic.

2. Tousled Texture

Kate Bosworth is one of my favorites with this look. It’s a totally unfussy, natural looking hairstyle. I also love Kristen Stewart’s look below.

3. Full Bangs

Taylor Swift and Jessica Biel both have full bangs for a modern touch, whether hair is worn up or down.

4. Braided Updos

I LOVE BRAIDS! They add an element of fun to any outfit. Chloe Moretz playfull braids give a youthful flair to her bun and Sienna Miller went for the classic milkmaid. You can always try some plaiting on the sides for a sleeker style.

5. Colorful Hair

Lauren Conrad tried out pink  for quick “notice-me” tips, while the queen of color, Katy Perry, rocks a short blue bob. The colors of this season are rich blues and purples 🙂

6. Low Buns

Take your topknot down a notch…Jessica Alba wears a sophisticated and polished version, while Zoe Saldana’s is a more undone way. Remember it doesn’t have to be perfect.

7. Accessorized Dos

I love a great accessory, for dressed up for your, or helping it out on a lazy day! Emma Stone adds some romance to her hair with this gorgeous gold, wreath like headband. Emily Blunt (below) creates a dramatic scene in her hair with her dark feathered piece.

Hairstyle Looks to Love: Emma Stone

Many of you might know my obsession with Emma Stone by now if you have followed me for long enough. It’s not really that I think she is the most gorgeous celebrity or the best dressed, but it’s more that I think she is the most well improved! She is so cute and actually a really funny actress. I am always up to see a movie with her in it. Plus as I have said before I think she looks amazing compared to when she first started out!

She is doing a campaign for Revlon right now and I don’t think they could have picked anyone better. She has a fresh face and is willing to try out any trend. Her hair looks great almost any color she has tried and she doesn’t overdo it on the makeup!

Here are some of my favorite beauty and hair trends from her this year!

Her simple go-to hair down, with a little curl in it!

Love the flat ironed looked with dramatic eyes.

A flirty look: natural makeup with an embellished accessory for fun!

 Super Fresh: Bright lipstick and glossy side swept bangs!

Cover Girl Look: Face framing messing updo with blush tones!

Cool Chick: Sculpted Pompadour with a metallic cat eye.

O So Chic: Twisted Updo and feminine purple lids.

Glam: Dark red lips go with her loosing pinned strands for a vamped up look.

And I love this simple pony with bangs, from her movie ‘The Amazing Spiderman’

Popular Peplums

Peplums are all the rage right now, and I’m totally down for this trend! I love it so much! So flattering and so cute. Maybe not the best option for super curvy girls, but I think if you wear it right you can get away with it. I love it as a little black dress or color blocked! Prints are also fun as well. Take a look at all of the celebrities below to see how all of the different body types wear it!

My favorite celebrity peplum! Model Coco Rocha in Jason Wu

My first runner up: Charlize Theron in Lanvin (She always looks flawless)

My second runner up: Jennifer Aniston in Tom Ford

Blake Lively in Victoria Beckham

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren (I love her in red)

Lucy Hale in Peter Som

Lady Gaga in Antonio Berardi (She actually looks classy here! Bravo Gaga!)

Kim Kardashian in Vigo (This is what I mean about the curvy thing, because it can almost make you look a little bit wider, but I think it still looks ok on her…borderline? What do you think?)

Dianna Agron in Stella McCartney

Emma Stone in Martin Grant

Beyonce in Peter Som (loving mustard!)

Victoria Beckham in her own dress

Here are three of my favorite peplums in stores now!
