Not sure which makeup look to pair with the stripe trend you're so into? We got the scoop from in-the-know fashion and beauty experts
Fashion Trend: Wild, crazy prints"The French have this saying, 'belle laide,' which means untraditionally beautiful, striking. Ugly, but beautiful -- that's kind of what these prints are," says Kotsiopoulos who warns that these prints work best in moderation. His tip: Wear a crazy print with jeans or shorts but keep the rest of your look neutral -- including makeup.
Eye Makeup Look: Nude eye with strong brows
Merante says, "Clean eye makeup was a big trend at the spring 2011 shows [including], Versace [where] the brows were the focus and the eye makeup was kept nude."
To get the look, apply a golden brown shadow all over your lid up to your creases. Try Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Eyecolor in Cashmere, $13. Then, using a dark brown shadow, lightly blend it into the creases of your eyes outwards. Fill in and slightly arch your brows with a color that's one shade darker than your natural brows. Lock them into place with a clear mascara. Apply two coats of volumizing mascara to the top lashes only and you're done.
