Enhance freshly groomed eyebrows by filling them until they're your desired thickness.

The Technique: Brush your eyebrows into their natural shape. Then add a brow filler and define the arches. For a stronger look, extend the color past the outer corner of your eye.

High Hopes for High Hair

Whether the stylists behind this look know it or not, they just gave out another lazy-girl styling tip for those with curly hair.

The Technique: There are two ways to approach this hairstyle. If you have shorter curls, gather your hair from the nape of your neck and pin the strands right under the crown of your head with a couple of bobby pins—fluff out the stray locks on top. For longer hair, do the same process, except secure your hair into a loose top knot with a ponytail holder, then finger comb the remaining curls until they have more height. Adorn this look with a headband or head wrap.

Extreme Wings

A simple cat eye is cool, but a thicker line updates the classic look.

The Technique: With a liquid liner, draw thick lines on the bottom and top lash lines. Then connect the two and draw an extended wing and fill it in. The tip should line up with the end of your brow.

Glitter Speak

This is how adults do glitter. Add some shimmer to your pout for a fun night out!

The Technique: Make sure your lips are soft and hydrated, so they will maintain the look without cracking. Once you've heavily moisturized, apply a dark pink or red to your lips. Add about three coats for more intensity. Dip a damp brush into a glitter mix and dab the sparkles on your lips until completely covered. [Editor's Note: You might want to eat before wearing this shimmery lip!]

The Other Fake Lashes

Fake a full set of lashes without applying difficult strips to your eyes.

The Technique: Take a black gel eyeliner and carefully draw about four or five dots of varying sizes (the biggest one should be closest to the outer corner of your eye). Add a couple coats of mascara to the upper lash line only. Then you're done!

A bolder look necessitates adding more than one clip to your hair. Incorporate a pattern to maximize the metallic accents!

The Technique: Part your hair down the middle and let each side rest naturally. If you have long hair, pull it into a low ponytail. For shorter styles, slick hair back with a smoothing or holding product. Then use the gold clamps along the fronts of each side. To add more dimension, twist the front parts against the hairline and clip!

Orange Crush x a Million

Take liberties with a summery, sorbet-like hue, and give yourself a high-fashion makeover in no time.

The Technique: Prep upper and lower lids with a primer that will keep the color bright. Dip an eyeshadow brush in a burnt orange shadow and apply it on your lids. Brush the color out to your brow bones and along your undereye area. Skip the mascara to keep a dreamy, effortless aesthetic.

Find Your (Braided) Center

If you have some French braiding skills and love a good center part, this look is definitely for you.

The Technique: De-frizz your hair with a smoothing serum and a comb. Then part a small section in the middle of your head, stopping the line at your crown. In a reverse motion, French braid that little section until the braid reaches your hairline. Tuck the tails behind your ears (or secure them with a bobby pin) and let the rest of your hair fall into its natural place.
