Sexy short hairstyles are coming in vogue this season, and Hollywood celebrities are sporting some adorable short ‘dos. Jennifer Aniston, whose hairstyles have inspired fashions for years, has traded in her long locks for a jaw-length square bob. Beyonce’s trimmed her own mane in favor of a smart and sassy pixie cut, and Jennifer Lawrence is rocking the ‘Catching Fire’ premieres in a flirty short updo that shows off her eyes and gorgeous earring collection.
All of these celebrities have one thing in common: They know the power of a short hairstyle to draw attention to their best features.
Short hair draws the eye upward to the cheek bones and eyes. When coupled with the right makeup, this can create a truly stunning look. While you might fear that a short hairstyle would make you look boyish, the opposite is often true: Short hair can be glamorous and feminine when accented by makeup. Here are a few tips:
— Choose the right eye shadow for your eye color. You’ll want to pick a shade that complements your eyes to make them pop. Warm shades, like brown and rose, work best for blue eyes; green eyes look great with violets and plums.
— Match bold eye colors with neutral lips and blush. Choose natural colors so that all of the focus will be on your eyes, especially if you’ve made a bold eye color choice.
— Experiment with eyeliner. A simple line on the upper lid is versatile, but it’s not your only choice. Try brightening tired eyes by applying a beige liner to your lower lid to hide signs of dryness or puffiness. Alternatively, opt for a more dramatic look by carefully smudging your liner for the iconic "smoky" look, or draw in an angular wing-tip to make a bold statement.
Of course, we believe the best way to get truly dramatic eyes is to accent them with Amazing Lashes from one of our three Amazing Lash Studios in Houston. Eyelash extensions can provide a versatile and durable look that will go with any fashion, and they require less fussing than false lashes and heavy mascara. They’re the perfect way to complete your own Hollywood look.
