    3 Ways to wear a graphic tee to work

    Woman wiping face in gym

    If there's ever a time to be extra cautious about what you touch and cleaning up after yourself, it's definitely at the gym. To avoid warts, bad breakouts and other unsightly skin infections (ew!), heed these beauty tips from the pros.

    Safety first

    1

    Don't sport a full face of makeup

    You never know when you might bump into a total hottie at the gym, but is sporting a full face of makeup really worth it if all you wind up with is a face full of pimples? We think not. "When exercising, the body perspires, which eliminates toxins,” explains aesthetician and national director of education for G.M. Collin Skin Care Karen Asquith. "If there is makeup on the skin, then all this waste will remain on the skin, causing irritation and breakouts” (thanks to clogged pores). To prevent unwanted acne, Karen recommends cleansing your skin both before and after a workout.

    2

    Don't get too cozy with your yoga mat

    Yoga may cleanse your mind. A dirty mat, however, can transfer nasty sweat and germs to your face and skin. Um, no thanks! That's why dermatologist and founder of GOLDFADEN MD, Dr. Gary Goldfaden, warns against putting your face directly on a yoga mat unless it is yours and has been cleaned. "Yoga mats can carry bacteria and germs, that can cause your skin to break out if you place your face on it,” he warns. Cecilia Wong, founder and facialist at New York City-based Cecilia Wong Skincare, advises spraying a probiotic toner on afterwards to cleanse pores and kill bacteria.

    3

    Don't neglect to shower after a workout

    You didn't sweat that much so it's cool to just kick it around the house in your gym clothes, right? Wrong! "Even if you didn't break a big sweat, walking around in your gym clothes can trap in bacteria and lead to rashes, breakouts and skin infections,” points out Dr. Marina Peredo, founder of Spatique Medical Spa and Marina I. Peredo, M.D., P.C. Dermatology in Smithtown, New York. “Shower as soon as you can after a workout. And if you're going to use the public showers, steam rooms, etc., be sure to wear flip flops,” she says. “Going in barefoot can lead to toe/foot fungus.” Ick.

    4

    Don't wear too-tight sneakers

    Ouch! Not only do too-tight sneakers hurt your poor footsies, they can actually cause some seriously funky fungal infections too. Dr. Paul Kinsinger, a board certified family physician, warns his patients against wearing shoes that are too tight as it causes unnecessary trauma to toenails. "Contrary to what some people think, toenails are not solid,” he notes. "They have tiny micropores that infections can pass through. When sneakers are too tight, toes experience what is called trauma due to friction against the shoe. This tiny bit of trauma combined with the dark, hot, moist environment feet are subjected to often leads to fungal infections.” To play it safe, Dr. Kinsinger suggests buying shoes that fit, of course. And also keeping toenails trimmed.

    5

    Don't wipe your face with your hands

    OK, so maybe you're that girl at the gym who cleans off every machine after she's done using it (good for you!), but chances are, there were a ton of sweaty dudes before you who definitely did not. To dodge an icky situation, celebrity aesthetician Renee Rouleau recommends not touching your face while working out, especially when using cardio and weightlifting machines. "The machines breed bacteria so it's best to keep your hands off of your skin,” she says. "You don't want to introduce bacteria that can possibly result in new breakouts or spread existing breakouts. Always wash your hands before and after working out,” she advises.

    6

    Don't grunt too much

    Ever notice how body builders look a lot older than their age? Well, according to Adriana Martino, co-founder of SKINNEY Medspa, it's partly due to the foul faces they make. "Lifting heavy weight causes you to make a 'grunting like face,' which in turn, causes you to over work your expression lines especially on your forehead and crow's feet leading to more lines and more wrinkles.”

    "Remember: It's OK to smile when you're working out,” says Cecilia Wong.

    Sure, we can't get enough of vibrant colors all the time when the temps finally hit above freezing, but quite frankly, there's something so effortlessly cool about going against the grain come spring by rocking non-traditional dark colors. Meaning taking your tried-and-true cold-weather dark staples into your warm-weather routine. And what's the best part about this? You won't have to stock an entire spring wardrobe with new bright colors! You'll save so much time (and money!) by re-wearing those darker winter essentials you already have in your closet.

    Wondering how to transition your winter clothes into spring? We show you how with the three easy tips below.

    1

    Go for dark shoes, but nothing else

    It's easy to wear your go-to cold-weather black booties when it's warmer outside, you just need to ensure the rest of your outfit doesn't come across as too wintry. Pair with a flirty floral dress (no tights — just a short sock inside the boot will do), an easy denim jacket and a colorful bag.

    Go for dark shoes, but nothing else

    Floral Lightweight Dress (Mango, $70), Dixie Denim Jacket (LuckyBrand, $90),
    Groove Nylon Mini Bag (Juicy Couture, $98), Tassel Trim Western Ankle Boots (River Island, $90)

    2

    Lighten up a chunkier sweater

    You can't get enough of your charcoal oversized knit sweater on those frigid days, but you'd probably never guess it could work on balmy days, right? Well, think again. It's easy to rock without sweating to death if you keep the rest of your outfit lighter. Try your slouch sweater with a colorful pencil skirt for a laid-back, yet polished work look. Although you'll be wearing a sweater, the bare legs (and lower arms if you roll up your sleeves!) will keep you cool on warm days — and you'll look cool, too.

    Lighten up a chunkier sweater

    Eight Eight Eight Cable Tress Sweater (Lord & Taylor, $24), Stephanie Jersey Pencil Skirt (French Connection, $98), Style&Co. Len Boots (Macy's, $86), Majes Necklace (Oliver Bonas, $45) 

    3

    De-bulk a black coat

    Although spring technically means warmer temps, there will be some days when it's still just a bit cooler outside. So to beat those elements, your black winter pea coat may become incredibly useful. Just don't add as many layers as you would if it was below zero outside. A not-too-thick button-down shirt, skinnies and cute sneakers will keep your warm, but not too warm.

    De-bulk a black coat

    Wool Blended Pea Coat (Uniqlo, $60), Oversized Casual Stripe Shirt (Topshop, $64), Medium Wash Skinny Jeans (Zara, $50), Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High-Tops (My Theresa, $99)

    Yes, no matter how much progress women may have made in the business world, we still live in a structure where the underlying societal norm is that men are expected to handle business and women are paid to look pretty.

    "You can't miss them. They're wearing neon green spandex unitards."

    My first experience at a large-scale professional trade show was in Frankfurt, Germany. The city's event center is roughly the size of your average German rural village and, for the week-long lighting and interior design fair that is held there every two years, the place functions as sort of a town center, as well. Temporary food stands and medical centers are set up, salespeople push their products while visitors catch up on what's new in the business over a coffee or Saran-wrapped sandwich. The cultural setting quickly comes to mirror what one would find outside the convention center's doors and, unfortunately, so does the social structure.

    As a female sales representative at an event such as this, one already immediately feels conspicuous. Greatly outnumbered by men and already overwhelmed by the unfortunate realization that business remains an old boys' club no matter where you are, be it Frankfurt, Germany, or Las Vegas, Nevada. In my first day "womaning" my company's small booth, I had been looked at condescendingly by engineers as I explained the technology behind our product and had been visited frequently by a well-meaning young man who, throughout the day, brought colleagues to come look at me, his elected crush for the week.

    All of this was bearable and, unfortunately not wholly unexpected to a certain extent, but what really blew my mind were the booth babes.

    "Do they still do that?" my colleague asked our CFO when he told us a Belgian company had brought some babes with them on the road. "You can't miss them," he affirmed, "They're wearing neon green spandex unitards."

    "Booth Babes" are an unfortunate vestige of the days of fraternizing and three martini lunches in the business world, when men were expected to handle business and women were paid to look pretty. Despite the fact that it has been shown that booth babes don't work, some companies still insist on hiring "marketing events consultants," or hot college girls to wear suggestive clothing and hover around your booth for the duration of the event, with the intent of luring visitors in to promote a company's products.

    While some organizations, such as the Seattle-based PAX gaming show, have been progressive enough to ban booth babes at their events (also not allowed: drugs and punching or kicking people), booth babes remain a common sight wherever businessmen convene. Embracing what author Stephanie Coontz calls "the hottie mystique," some staffing service companies now send promotional e-mails with subject lines like one I recently received from a company called Live Talent which announced: "The past: Booth Babes. The future: Beauty AND Brains!"

    The message this sends is that brains are only a desirable quality in women if the woman happens to also be a babe. Despite the fact that women represent a growing number of Fortune 500 CEO positions, the world of business retains its boys' club mentality in many respects, proving it's not enough to be LinkedIn, but women also have to lean in and if that doesn't work — a skimpy spandex outfit will get you in the door.

    Emma Watson wearing an ear cuff

    Leave it to Emma Watson to make us finally want to succumb to one of the fashion world's rapidly growing trends: ear cuffs. The pretty Brit has always been ahead of the crowd when it comes to fashion and beauty trends. Remember when she cut her hair into a pixie and shocked us all? Yeah, that was before the look was considered "cool" and every other hot star jumped on the bandwagon. So it should come as no surprise that Emma has gotten on board with the ear cuff trend.

    The actress made her edgy diamond ear cuff pop by pairing it with an unfussy updo, trendy orange lip and larger-than-life lashes. If you ask us, the bold ear accessory adds just the right touch of funk to Emma's black Oscar de la Renta gown.

    Emma is just the latest actress to dip her toe into the ear cuff pond. Over the past few seasons, we've seen countless ladies (not to mention major brands on the runway) experiment with the edgy accessory, and we're constantly inspired by the variations on the trend. Still not ready to rock the in-your-face look? We think these lovely ladies might be able to convince you.

    Celebs love their ear cuffs

    Jennifer Lawrence took haute couture to a new level in Paris with a diamond ear cuff worn with a bold burgundy lip and her signature pixie.

    Peter Som for Kohl's

    Set your calendars, ladies: Peter Som's much anticipated collection for Kohl's DesigNation hits stores April 10. We've got your first look at all the amazing clothes.

    We've been waiting for months to get a sneak peek at the Peter Som for DesigNation collection. Now that it's finally here, we can let you know it was totally worth the wait.

    The fourth installment of the Kohl's DesigNation program will only be in stores for a limited time, so study up and make your checklists now because this collection is sure to fly off the shelves fast.

    The collection

    One thing is clear: Peter Som's fashion star has been rising the past few years. A media and celeb fave (Allison Williams, Kate Mara, Jessica Alba and Scarlett Johansson are all fans), Peter was a logical choice for DesigNation's latest featured designer.

    So what was Peter inspired by when designing his collection? St. Barths. In his designs, he brings the island's playful spirit to life with a range of pieces that mix practicality and creativity. And in keeping with all of Kohl's designer collaborations, if you don't have the disposable income of a celeb, you're in luck because everything in the collection is under $100. Prices range from $38 to $88.

    Our fave pieces

    Celeb Hairstyle of the Week: Britney Spears at the 2014 People's Choice Awards

    Britney's back, baby! The singer is sitting pretty on a two year contract in Vegas and recently released a new album. Oh yeah, and she's been stepping up her style game! I spotted Brit sporting this gorgeous braided half updo and am dying to try it out myself. Aussie celebrity stylist Sarah Potempa is offering tips for scoring Brit's cute style. Have fun styling, ladies!

    Get the look

    1. Start by prepping damp hair with a product to add volume, like Aussie’s Aussome Volume Styling Mousse. Apply to the root and loosely blow dry upward to lock in the volume.
    2. Use a curling iron like the Beachwaver (select L or R and the iron rotates to curl for you!) to create soft waves throughout. If you don’t have a Beachwaver, the key to good loose waves is to wrap the hair around the curling iron and away from your face (to avoid tight banana curls).
    3. Section your hair to create a side swept bang and using the mini styling brush, back brush the roots of the top layer of your hair to add extra volume. Spritz with Aussie’s Aussome Volume Hairspray to lock in place.
    4. Pull half of your hair up and secure with a clear elastic. Tip: To hide these elastics like Britney did, wrap a small amount of hair around the elastic and secure with a mini bobby pin.
    5. Braid the half-up hair and secure the ends with another clear elastic. Pull the braid open on the sides to create a looser, cooler texture.

    Danielle Campbell

    Spring has sprung and you know what that means: Skin is in. Last year's crop tops have returned to the fashion scene, and are causing many a gal to frantically fit a bunch of crunches into her exercise routine. Danielle Campbell, star of The Originals, showed off an original and chic way to make this trend work.

    Sophisticated crop tops? Yeah, you don't usually hear those words used together. But somehow, Danielle's chic combo works. As with all things fashion, the key is moderation. Her crop top hits right above the navel and when paired with a high-waisted pencil skirt, only a slight bit of midriff is showing. Snake skin nude pumps, jewel-toned earrings and shiny waves added just the right finishing touches to Danielle's ensemble.

    The final verdict? Before you go crazy for crop tops and start planning out your new work wardrobe, let me offer a piece of advice: Midriff is never appropriate in the boardroom. This is, however, a fun way to make the often risque look a bit more sophisticated for special events or date night.

    Kiernan Shipka

    And she does it again. Kiernan Shipka proved one more time that she's a fashion force to be reckoned with, this time at a promotional event for her hit show Mad Men. The 15-year-old brought serious spring attitude with her in this strapless floral print sheath dress.

    With spring officially here and cold weather still plaguing much of the nation, Kiernan's cheery dress is a welcome treat. Florals are always a hot spring trend, but they can come off a bit gaudy if the print isn't just right. Luckily, Kiernan tapped into her fashion know-how and selected a print that toes the line between bold and demure quite nicely. Kiernan added another hot spring trend (metallics) into the mix with some strappy sandals and finished her look off with a toned down beauty look.

    The final verdict? Words can't describe how much I love this girl's style. She consistently brings her fashion A-game and always knows how to dress appropriately for an event. I can't wait to see what she wears next.

    Emma Stone

    Emma Stone channels her finest prison jumpsuit slash tablecloth here at The Amazing Spider-Man 2 photo call down under in Sydney. Her black and white striped baggy Chloe dress is prime for a fine from the fashion police for a few reasons. This outfit is committing multiple infractions all at once, mixing too many materials, prints and design elements.

    We've got stripes, sheer overlays, lacy fabric and an asymmetrical hemline, not to mention the fact that Emma's petite frame is drowning in this oversized ensemble. We would have streamlined the look to just a white dress underneath and a sheer striped number over top. The sleeves and frilly hem is more grandma, less "it" girl.

    The final verdict? The yellow pumps are an interesting choice but with so much happening already here, they just clash. But Emma's red lob (long bob) looks sleek and lovely and the view of the Sydney Opera House in the background is beautiful, so we can almost forgive the bad clothes.

    Rihanna

    Rihanna was leaving Tramp nightclub in London so maybe she was dressing to theme with the venue's name in this trashy number. The "Pour It Up" singer donned an oversized T-shirt and no pants to party at the exclusive venue.

    Her outfit has us confused because if it's warm enough to forgo any bottoms, why is she also wearing a full length fur coat, which is usually saved for sub-zero temps? And since when does a fancy fur coat go with high top sneakers? Is that a collar she's wearing along with a huge key necklace? We have so many questions.

    The final verdict? So this certainly isn't Riri's classiest getup, but she was reportedly out clubbing with her new guy Drake and we totally approve of anyone she's dating who's not Chris Brown, so let's give her points for that. She may not have the best fashion sense but at least her taste in men is improving.

    Jennifer Connelly's eyebrows
    Photo credit: Jemal Countess/Getty Images Entertainment

    If you haven’t taken notice of Jennifer Connelly’s beyond-perfect eyebrows before, 1. Are you breathing? and 2. Check out this photo of her at the Noah movie premiere and tell me that they aren’t the pair that will stand out among the film’s other twosomes aboard. Aren’t we glad these two survived the flood.

    Like anything that is so beautiful, you can’t look directly at it for too long, and the obvious question to ask yourself is, "How can I get these on my own face, please?" And, we’re with you.

    At first we thought that such a high-brow eyebrow would require a celebrity makeup artist, expensive products and perhaps even some sort of exotic extensions, but then we realized with the right attitude and a little magic you can achieve the perfect pair of eyebrows in four easy steps.

    1. Pray. Get serious in your soul about begging and pleading to a higher power for a natural, full eyebrow that someone will someday write articles about.
    2. Die and come back as a distant relative of Jennifer Connelly’s in your second life.
    3. Find a genie in a bottle and use your three wishes to ask for a perfect left eyebrow, a perfect right eyebrow and lastly for the ability to never have to tweeze again so they stay like this forever.
    4. If none of this works, try your hand at some tutorials for filling your measly brows. We love this one by The Beauty Department.

    We think it’s only right that everyone gets a fair chance to sport Connelly-inspired eyebrows. Start a movement or something, because the full brow trend is not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Red roses

    Red roses are perfect for the girly-girl who has expensive taste and prefers shopping at designer boutiques rather than fast-fashion stores. Not only are red roses utterly romantic, but the woman who loves them is typically very passionate about fashion, too. She’s a dreamer, and her style reflects that. If you’re walking down the aisle this spring, why not accessorize your white wedding dress with a ravishing red rose floral crown fit for a princess? An all-over red rose-printed lace dress is another elegant option for a dinner party or a night out on the town with the girls. For daytime, get all glammed up in a red rose-embellished flouncy skirt.

    Tulips

    Tulips are elegant, timeless and come in a wide variety of colors. They’re best suited for the sophisticated woman with a classic sense of style whose diverse wardrobe has come to be admired by her peers. After all, tulips are associated with fame. To get your floral fix this season, we suggest investing in a silky tulip print scarf that can be paired with any solid-colored tee or top for years to come. Not into prints and patterns? Then show off your sexy stems in a tasteful tulip-shaped skirt or dress. This silhouette is a popular (and flattering) pick for spring.

    If you can’t get enough of bold, bright fashion and outfits that really pop, then the sunflower is definitely your perfect match. It’s perky, playful and puts a smile on people’s faces, much as your style does. For springtime, go loud in brilliant yellow bathing suits, neon crop tops and colorful denim pants and jackets. If yellow isn’t exactly your favorite color, you can still mix things up with chic sunflower-shaped jewelry. Of course, electric yellow sunglasses are a no-brainer.

    Exotic, tropical and highly coveted, orchids are a lot like today’s in-demand fashion bloggers: They have the innate ability to captivate a wide audience with their rare beauty and charm. If you’re planning a tropical vacay this spring, don’t forget to pack an eye-catching orchid-print bikini that’s sure to turn heads on the beach. Orchid drop earrings are an elegant touch for a fancy spring soiree, while strappy pastel lavender sandals in Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year, are another must-have.

    Model wearing pleather pants

    Shame
    is lame

    I went to elementary school with a girl who was overly energetic and often wore bright pleather pants. She had a lot of friends and was by no means a loner but other kids made fun of her. Because she dared to be bold, she was a target to other kids in our class.

    When I try to pinpoint a moment she was defeated by her naysayers or any moment she looked ashamed, I can't recall one.

    This could be poor memory. Or, it could be that she refused to be anyone but herself. Her pleather pants stayed bright; they still had funky patterns.

    I heard a segment on NPR about a year ago, an interview with researcher Brene Brown who studies shame and vulnerability. “We're up against uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure every day,” said Brown. While wearing pleather pants in fifth grade isn't exactly exposing any deep emotions, to wear them facing adversity is a small act of courage, a declaration of you who are.

    Cancer survivor Monika Allen's was recently featured in SELF magazine running a race wearing a tutu. She was criticized by SELF as being lame but her wearing that tutu is a declaration in the same way. It's a symbol of herself. Sure, it's fluffy and weird and too girly for some but for her, it was strength. It was charity. It was living after coming so close to dying.

    SELF magazine's decision to classify the cancer survivor's tutu as lame is a huge slash to the girl power message that the Sheryl Sandbergs and Beyoncés of the world have worked hard to lay groundwork for, and not because they shamed a cancer survivor but because they shamed someone period.

    In a world where we encourage each other to redefine beauty and embrace our flaws and non-photoshopped shapes in light of shedding our layers and being wholly ourselves, we have to remember that cynicism is not a method of connection to the people who read your magazine or your blog, or to the girlfriends you brunch with, nor is it a way to the top. At least, it's not the right way.

    As Brown put it, “In order for connection to happen, we have to allow ourselves to be seen.” She also states that shame is easily understood as the fear of disconnection. It's a fear that what makes you different also makes you weak and, as women, we should not seek to abuse each other's weaknesses. We should not disconnect others for such trivial reasons as what they wear or encourage them to disconnect themselves by poking fun.

    Now, I'd be lying if I said I didn't know a few people whose first instinct would be to make a little fun of anyone running in a tutu because it's different, and weird, and flamboyant. Even though they're a single soul, not a major publication, shaming someone they don't know for a purely cosmetic reason, the crime is the same. People will criticize SELF and rightfully point fingers at what they did to Monika Allen, but we shouldn't spend too much time doing that. We should all take some time to reflect on a time we judged someone in passing with no consequences.

    As individuals it's likely that no one is loading backlash and bad publicity into a bomb they will drop the moment you shame someone. Yet, we should probably be acting as if that were the case.

    Women, and men for that matter, want to be loved for who we are. We like to say we live like we don't care what people think and increasingly turn to each other for advice on how to face adversity. As we continue to embrace real beauty as loving our flaws and banning the image society used to think we should succumb to, let's save our voices for less pessimistic matters than how stupid it is when other women wear pleather pants and tutus. After all, no matter what fabric they are made of, we all pull our pants up the same way each morning.

    Braided headband tutorial

    This bohemian braided band or maiden braid is super pretty and versatile. It’s fancy enough for an event like a baby shower or party and casual enough to wear to the park with your kids or running errands.

    If you know how to do a simple three-strand braid, you can master this style in about five minutes. All you need are some small hair bands, a few bobby pins and hairspray.

    So gather your materials and let’s get started. View the step-by-step instructions below.

    1

    Section your hair, and then divide it down the center into 2 equal sections.

    Braided headband tutorial

    2

    Tie each section into a ponytail just behind your ear using a small hair band. If your hair is longer, you can start lower by the nape.

    Braided headband tutorial

    3

    Braid each ponytail all the way to the ends and secure with another hair band.

    Braided headband tutorial

    4

    Gently pull on the sides of the braid to make it wider and to loosen the braid. This step is very important, especially if you don’t have a ton of hair. It also gives your braid a softer, messier look.

    Braided headband tutorial

    5

    Now position the first braid. Hold 1 braid up against your scalp and position it where you would put a headband.

    Braided headband tutorial

    6

    Pin the braid in place with bobby pins to secure it to your head starting at the base of the braid. Cross the pins for added strength.

    Braided headband tutorial

    7

    Repeat on the other side. Position your second braid, folding the ends under each other at the top of your head to hide the bands and pin in place.

    Braided headband tutorial

    8

    Finally, carefully cut out the hair bands at the base of your braids. Voilà! Finish with a spritz of hairspray and your pretty boho-chic style is complete.

    The right pixie cut for your face shape

    Before making the big cut, it's important to figure out what face shape you have. Lucky for you, we have a handy guide to help you out. Once you're all set with your face shape, there are a few things to consider before you head to the salon. We got Matrix Celebrity Hairstylist George Papanikolas to offer some of his best tips for what pixie cut to choose for your unique face shape and how to style your new 'do.

    An oval face

    Rihanna's pixie cut

    According to Papanikolas, you're pretty lucky if you've got an oval-shaped face. "They can wear pretty much any haircut, and they will look great," he says. Since you're free to play around with different cuts and styles, get creative and experiment with heavy fringe for your pixie or messy textures.

    A round face

    Jennifer Lawrence's pixie cut

    To offset the roundness of your lovely visage and add "just the right amount of angles," Papanikolas recommends asking your stylist for a pixie with an angled side-swept bang. Wearing your pixie straight will also help keep your face from looking even rounder.

    Photo credit: Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagic/Getty Images

    A long face

    Cate Blanchett's pixie cut

    If you're rocking a long face, a pixie cut should be approached with caution, Papanikolas says, as it might draw too much emphasis to the length of your face. The ideal cut for you? A short bob. But if you're absolutely set on a pixie, you can make it work as long as you part it on the side to balance things out. Wearing your pixie wavy can also give more width and balance.

    A square face

    Evan Rachel Wood's pixie cut

    Papanikolas suggests a shaggy pixie for ladies with a square face. The piecey texture will help balance out your stronger jaw line and add nice definition. As with all pixies, make sure you visit your salon every four to six weeks for a trim to maintain the shape.

    A heart-shaped face

    Miley Cyrus' pixie cut

    If your face features a heart shape, bangs will really make your pixie stand out. Papanikolas recommends framing your pretty eyes with a flattering swooping bang. Also, feel free to go pretty short in the back.

    Photo credit: Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage/Getty Images

    A diamond-shaped face

    Alyssa Milano's pixie cut

    Shine bright with a pixie cut featuring lots of top volume. Another tip Papanikolas offered? Side cropping will flatter your high cheek bones and the angles of your face.

    Tutorial: Cat eye makeup in teal

    Ready for spring? While the weather isn’t quite cooperating, the days are getting longer and the sun is shining a bit brighter, giving a subtle hint that a fairer season is around the corner. Get a head start on Mother Nature by ditching the winter neutrals and adding a pop of bright color.

    I will show you a simple trick for wearing a teal cat eyeliner. Simple cat eyes are a quick and easy look for a brighter, brilliant shade and they really make eyes pop. I used teal but of course, this trick can help you create cat eyes in any color you prefer. Basic black is a classic but stick to rich jewel tones like emerald green or a shimmering purple for maximum impact.

    Step-by-step tutorial for perfect teal cat eyes

    For this look, you will need:

    1

    Prime your tape

    Tutorial: Cat eye makeup in teal

    Cut off a small piece of tape about 1-1/2 inches long and stick it to the back of your hand. This makes the tape less adhesive so that it won’t hurt the delicate skin around your eyes.

    2

    Apply tape

    Tutorial: Cat eye makeup in teal: Apply tape

    Using the curve of your bottom lash line as a guide, apply the primed tape to the outer corner of your eye as shown.

    3

    Draw your first line

    Tutorial: Cat eye makeup in teal: Draw your first line

    Draw a line up from your eye along the tape to whatever height you desire. Anywhere between 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch works well.

    4

    Remove tape

    Tutorial: Cat eye makeup in teal

    Gently peel off tape to reveal a nice, clean line.
