Trend Alert: Playing with Matches


Looking for holiday beauty inspo? Here it is, thanks to Jessica Alba, who appears beautifully done-up without looking overly-fussy. The key is that she went semi matchy-matchy by opting to coordinate the hue of her geometric, ruby Bavna drop earrings with a slightly-shimmering berry pout. The blush ties both together, while the groomed brows and understated shadow fall to the backdrop. To get this look, check out Bobbi Brown’s Berry Punch (at Bobbi Brown for $27). If that particular shade doesn’t suit your complexion, the makeup artist has a bunch of other great berry hues for the season (Hot Berry is another favorite). Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Blushicon (at Sephora for $35) is a gorgeous option for blush. I’m always a fan of slightly-flushed cheeks – they bring life to the face! – but all the more when the temperatures start getting cold. Hourglass blush is a favorite because you can apply it haphazardly and not risk looking like a clown. It also has a slight shimmer, so you get that Alba glow. Complete the look with some mascara and a light, shimmery shadow like one of the ones in the NARS NARSissist Matte/Shimmer Eyeshadow Paletteicon (at Sephora for $65).
