How to Get Amy Adams’ Sleek, Classic Bun Hairstyle

December 19, 2013 at 8:00 am , by

Amy Adams was the very image of elegant and demure at the December 12th premiere of “Her” in Los Angeles. Amy’s low, loose bun is a classic style we’d wear to a work function or a special night out. She completed her look with pitch-perfect, subdued makeup. We especially love the smoky gray glitter under her lower lash line (try BareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow in “Gleaming Pewter”) and her petal pink lip color (try Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in “Turn On”).

Flirty Hair And Makeup For Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2011 at 9:30 am , by

I love Valentine’s Day for several different reasons: lots of chocolate, pretty flowers and most importantly, love. But it’s not only meant for those in a relationship. A celebration is always in order, whether you’re staying in with your love or out on the town alongside friends. Today’s the day to spice up your hair and makeup routine and these videos help you achieve a flirty look.

If you have long hair like I do and are tired of limp locks, try a hair knot. It’s easy and elegant–and also helps to lengthen your neck. This video walks you through the steps to perfect the technique.

Soft, sexy waves look great on both short and long hair. And–surprise–you don’t need need a curling iron to get them. Use your flat iron for fresh take on curls.

My favorite part of getting ready is putting on makeup. Here, YouTube sensation Michelle Phan creates a playful look with pretty pinks. (I’ve personally gotten so many compliments on my makeup from emulating her style.)

Happy Valentine’s Day!
