Carolina Herrera's Big Hair Moment
When Blair Waldorf first hit the small screen in 2007, the beauty world flipped for the queen bee's statement-making headbands. Then Kate Middelton came along, and we couldn't get enough of Royal Wedding-inspired toppers. And recently hair bands are making a third comeback on the red carpet and the runway.
Pro-stylist Orlando Pita deems there to be a new trend on the horizon. At the ultra-glam Carolina Herrera show, he used simple black elastic bands tied about an inch back from the hairline as a way to make the models look a bit younger. It also balanced the voluminous hairstyle (thanks to tons of teasing and Moroccan Oil Luminous Hairspray).
To complement such attention-grabbing tresses, Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics, created a fresh makeup look that consisted of contouring the models' cheekbones, a black cream eyeliner drawn on the roots of their lashes, and Spice lip pencil on their pouts. "I enhanced their features without including any color," she explains.
