The Prettiest Beauty Look To Try Right Now

by Stephanie Montes

Let’s face it, everyone gets bored with their beauty routine. We were struck with major inspiration when we saw this hair and makeup combo from Rachel Zoe’s pre-fall 2016 collection. A little bit classic and a little boho, this fishtail-crown-red-lip duo is perfect for the office, date night and everything in between. Here’s how to get it.

The Skin

Give your winter skin a summery glow by hydrating with a nourishing face oil. Apply a primer with a gold tone to boost warmth in your complexion, then a sheer, natural-coverage foundation. Spot-treat with a full-coverage concealer. Use a light balm on the bridge of your nose, cheekbones and eyelids for a dewy pop. Lightly contour with taupe bronzer to add some color.

The Eyes

Apply a taupe cream eye shadow to the lids and under the bottom lash line with your finger. Fill in brows with a pencil and groom with a clear brow gel. Finish by curling lashes and swiping on a few coats of mascara.

The Lips

After hydrating lips with a moisturizing lip balm, apply a dark burgundy liquid lipstick with your finger to stain your pout. Layer with a brick-red lipstick, and finish with a raspberry lip crayon. Combining lip colors creates a unique shade and gives your look dimension.

The Hair

Prep blow-dried hair with texturizing spray and separate into 4 sections. Braid each section, then go over each with a flat iron. Once cooled, repeat the iron, then cool and release the braids for boho beach waves. Spritz again with texturizing spray.

Make a center part and section off a 3-inch wide piece on either side. Create a fishtail braid on each section and secure with a clear elastic. Starting at the base of the braid, pull both sides to loosen and widen the plaits. Cross both braids over to the opposite side and pin to secure.
