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: Satin eyesRich, satin-looking eyes made their way down the catwalk in hues of deep blues, purples and dark silvers -- wear them to quickly add intensity to your look. For a "sultry, smoky eye [like Leighton Meester's], use colors that complement and intensify your own natural eye color," says Devitt. Try purples and blues if you have dark eyes and silvers and gunmetal shades for light eyes.
Application tips: To achieve this look, choose your fall-appropriate satin color like Nars Single Eye Shadow in Daphne (deep purple), Night Flight (deep blue), or Night Breed (deep silver), $23 and sweep it across your eyelid with a flat brush. Hold your brush pointing downward as you apply it as "this allows the pigment to get deep into the lashline," says Devitt. To make your eyes look more open "even if the finished look is sultry, blend eyeshadow no further than the browbone to soften and create a more natural transition," says Devitt. This also keeps attention on your eye color instead of the makeup application, she adds. Finish by adding a dot of cream-colored shimmer eyeshadow to your browbone and inner corners to make your eyes "look extra sparkly," explains Devitt.
