Copy fall's chic trends in less time than it takes your coffee to brew by following these expert celebrity hairstyle and makeup tricks
The look: Feline eyes paired with flawless skinRetro cat eyes, like the ones seen here on Christina Hendricks, are sexy and easy to copy. To nail this look, you'll need a flawless-looking complexion. From there, add a quality black liquid liner and mascara to instantly make your look fall-appropriate.
Application tips: Creating a flawless complexion is all about the makeup application process, says Devitt. She uses a "step-by-step routine" recommended for all skin types.
Step 1: Apply foundation only where it's needed (find the best foundation for you here). After foundation, apply a light dusting of loose powder, and finish with concealer applied to the areas that need it (try Smashbox High Definition Liquid Concealer, $18). "I'm a proponent of foundation first, followed by concealer so you can actually see what you need to pay extra attention to," advises Devitt.
Step 2: Dust blush on the apples of your cheeks for a touch of subtle color.
Step 3: For the cat eye, use an inky black liner like Maybelline New York Lineworks Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, $6.99 and gently sweep it across your upper lash line, winging it out just past the natural line of your eye, to create that sexy feline look. Finish with three coats of jet-black mascara like Dior Mascara Diorshow, $24 applied to top lashes only to further enhance the drama.
