When it comes to accessories this spring, two hues are better than one! After a colorful runway season, the two-tone bag is trending, bringing a welcome pop of color to most any outfit. Here, we gathered 10 of our favorite colorblock duos in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges!

Glee songstress Naya Rivera looked bright-eyed and beautiful at a party in West Hollywood earlier this week. Her fuss-free blown back hair (a 90’s trend that is making a big comeback) gave way to her stunning eye makeup and glowing complexion.
One thing that makes Naya’s almond-shaped eyes stand out even more than usual is the subtle trace of purple eyeshadow you see around the inner corners of her eyes. To get a similar look, we recommend smoothing on a layer of your favorite foundation, followed by a peach blush (we love Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin). Dust an illuminating highlighter down the bridge of your nose and over your cheekbones for some additional glow and definition. To start your eye makeup, we recommend using an eyeshadow stick to coat your lid (try Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst), and then dusting a powder eyeshadow on the inner third part of your lid (try Urban Decay Cosmetics Eye Shadow in AC/DC). Follow by tracing a thin line along your top and bottom lashes, smudging it a bit with your finger or a q-tip (for a dramatic look like Naya’s, line your upper and lower waterlines with the same black liner). Finish by swiping on a nude lip gloss and a few coats of mascara.

Whether your warm spring weekends include a music festival, a stroll around a farmer’s market, or brunch with friends, these straight-from-the-runways, global-inspired pants are versatile enough to fit any occasion. Plus, you’re basically getting away with wearing pajamas in public–boom! Since the pants are the focus, keep your other pieces neutral and add a metallic sandal to finish the look.

On joining Fox & Friends after leaving The View…
It was like going from hanging out with your sisters to playing catch with your brothers. I don’t think I am or will ever be the best at what I do but I try really hard. My parents gave me the freedom to pursue passions and take sensible risks.
Getting up at 2:45 A.M. for my job…
I don’t even put one foot out of bed without reaching for my concealer. I have concealer everywhere: in my coat pocket, on my nightstand, in my car. The alarm goes of, I hit snooze. I feel for my concealer and I feel for my glasses. I put the concealer on and I’m ready to start my day.
My first date with my husband [former pro quarterback Tim Hasselbeck]…
We met when we were students at Boston College. We got locked out of the dorm we both lived in. There was nowhere to go, so we sat up against a bike rack and fell asleep holding hands. That first date lasted 14 hours. It wasn’t magical—we had our backs up against a metal bike rack!—but it felt strangely comfortable.
What I learned from being on Survivor in 2001…
I don’t like to fish. I don’t like being out in the wilderness. I don’t want to be with an animal that doesn’t have a cute name or an owner. I went in thinking I was tough and I found out I wasn’t tough at all. But I learned that facing your weaknesses can make you stronger.
The biggest misconception about me…
That I’m super-organized and type A. I’m a wannabe type A. I don’t even see the messes I make. Right now I probably have an apple rotting at the bottom of my bag.

Easter Eggs, sidewalk chalk, fresh flowers, pretty much everything we love about spring comes in a shade of pastel. And while these airy, delicate hues can be considered one of the oldest trends in the books this time of year, the look is coming back with a modern spin. Here, we picked ten pieces for every style personality, and trust us, you won’t feel the least bit haunted by the ghosts of your awful Easter dresses past.

Sarah Paulson’s beachy bob with subtle ombre stole the stage (er, red carpet) at the 2014 PaleyFest last weekend. The American Horror Story star recently ditched the bleach blond look that kept our eyes peeled all season during Coven (if you were watching through your fingers, we don’t blame you) and opted for the warm brunette shade you see here.
We’re obsessed with Sarah’s hair color, which seamlessly transitions from a deep mahogany to luscious caramel, while the face-framing waves soften her strong jawline and high cheekbones. She kept her makeup sweet and simple, opting for barely-there mascara and a bold, shiny watermelon lip. For a similar lip color, try Tarte Power Pigment lip tint in Sheer Watermelon. The subtle stain is great for layering, so you can decide how bold you want your color to be, and the hydrating formula leaves your lips feeling natural, not heavy with product.
If you’re considering a short cut, check out this video to figure out which hairstyles work best with your face shape!
