Such a treat to work on my longtime client Krysten Ritter this week for the ABC/Disney party celebrating her new show “Don’t Trust the B in Apt 23” (which is beyond hilarious and premieres in April!). And it’s a double treat to share with you lovelies how I took three inspirations from past TBD posts and applied them on the red carpet! Here’s exactly what I did and you can too:

I know we’d never think to take the holidays THIS literally, but after seeing Dior’s Spring + Jill Sander’s Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear shows (above), I have to say, it’s a really festive + pretty look for rocking around the Xmas tree! You can mix it up however you like:



Fall is officially here! So I thought it would be fun to share my five favorite nail polish shades for this upcoming season.  So here they are (in no particular order)…

Dark Red – You can’t go wrong with a classic red nail.  Try going for a darker hue this Fall.

Nude – For Spring and Summer I wore nudes with a pink base, but for Fall I am opting for nudes with a grey hue.

Metallics – Silver, rose gold, glitter… I love them all! Metallic polishes are a fun way to dress up any manicure.

Army Green – Be all you can be… With a military-inspired manicure.

Mauve – I couldn’t be more in love with this color.  So romanic, but still modern.

Bright-colored lips continued to be all the rage at the Fall 2011 shows this year (Sonia Rykel, Ralph Lauren, Thakoon, Mui Mui Ready-to-Wear).  Purples, Fuchsias, Oranges and Reds… it’s a make-up artists dream come true!  And it’s easy to translate this trend into real life by remembering these simple guidelines:

  1. Pick a creamy or matte formula lipstick while avoiding shimmer, metallic and glossy finishes.
  2. Go more minimal on the rest of your face by skipping eyeshadow or opting for a lighter shade, or even an eye gloss.  If it’s a must for you, cheat liner between your lashes or only inside on your waterline.
  3. Go ahead and go bold with your mascara by applying a couple coats or by creating spider lashes.

To make it last all day, follow these steps from my So Fancy tutorial and you’ll be all set to make a statement this Fall!  Such a simple and easy way to be brave…
