Orange lips

(CN Digital Studio, Devon Jarvis)

A how-to guide to this season's hottest looks, like tangerine lips, smoldering winged eyeliner and more.

The Trend: Orange Lips

With a shade this bold, scrub lips with a wet washcloth before you apply lipcolor so it doesn't magnify chapped areas, says New York City makeup artist Jackie Gomez.

Get the look:

Look for a creamy, not too shiny, not too matte, bright coral, like Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Favorite, $34. For touch-ups on the go, pack a full-coverage balm that swipes on, no mirror needed. We like Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Heftiest Hibiscus, $16.






Colorful Crease

The Trend: Colorful Eyelid Crease

Are you thinking, No way am I crayoning blue across my eyes? Hear us out: It's a total attention grabber.

First, tilt your chin up and look down into a mirror so you can see your lids. Now draw a blue line across the middle of each lid, following the shape of the crease.

Get the look:

Powder is the least in-your-face option, especially if you blend it with a shadow brush. Try L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Blue Haute Couture, $6.40.

Pencil is boldest. Retrace your line once or twice to even out the color, but don't make it too wide or it will look like a mistake. We like Lancôme Khôl In Love in Jade Crush, $26.

Hair Chalk

(Devon Jarvis)

The Trend: Hair Chalk

Working with chalk can be a powdery mess, says NYC stylist Rick Gradone. Don't want to get your hands dirty? Use a makeup brush to apply.


Get the look:

Pink looks best on blondes, purple and blue on brunettes. But try them all with Nordstrom Hair Chalk, $15. The potted version of kids' sidewalk chalk: Anastasia Hypercolor Brow & Hair Powder in Teal Tornado, $13. Make this potted lemon-lime powder (Kevin.Murphy Color.Bug in Neon, $20) look neon: Apply hairspray to strands first, then chalk it up.



Striped Nail

(Devon Jarvis, CN Digital Studio)

The Trend: Striped Nail

There's a trick to this: First, paint your entire nail silver. Wait until it's fully dry, then layer the orange polish down both sides of your nail, leaving a silver strip, says CND professional Roxanne Valinoti.


Get the look:

Metallic polishes tend to have glitter. Pick one that doesn't for smooth layering, like Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Hi Ho Silver, $7. We like OPI in My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours, $8, but cobalt or fuchsia also look cool with a silver stripe. No matter the color, use a wide brush to coat sides in two swipes.


Bold Brows

(Devon Jarvis)

The Trend: Bold Brows

You could just stop tweezing—except for strays. But if they don't grow or aren't dark enough, fill them with a powder or pencil one shade darker than your natural tone, brow stylist Joey Healy says.

Get the look:

Brush brow powder (looks just like eyeshadow) through brows to make them fuller. Try like Clé de Peau Beauté Eyebrow and Eyeliner Compact, $70. Color in a gap, extend a tail or angle your arch with Maybelline New York Master Shape Brow Pencil by Eyestudio in Auburn, $6.50. If brows are already bushy, skip powder or pencil and use clear gel to tame them. CoverGirl Professional Natural Lash Clear Mascara, $4.25.



Winged Eyeliner

(Devon Jarvis)

The Trend: Winged Eyeliner

As you swipe on liner, pull the skin at the outer corner of your eye toward your ear. "It helps you make a straight line," Gomez says. Let go, and then add the wing, flicking it just past the corner.

Get the look:

Smashbox Love Me Paint Pen Eye Liner, $24, is kinda like a sharpie: Easy to use and won't smudge once it dries. Don't worry. Comes right off with remover.

Or try a cream liner, like Fergie by Wet n Wild On Edge Crème Liner in Little Black Dress, $5. It's as dramatic as a liquid liner but goofproof.

    • 'Good Morning America' anchors reportedly 'sick' of Michael Strahan getting special treatment

      Michael Strahan’s role at “Good Morning America” is still ruffling feathers at the morning show. Sources claim fellow anchors on the show are sick of ABC bosses giving him preferential treatment. “They roll out the carpet for [Strahan] while seasoned talent is treated like dirt. He’s been given a lot of opportunity, flexibility, when the others who have been working there longer don’t get that kind of treatment,” a source said. Strahan signed a special deal that allows him to continue to analyze football at “Fox NFL Sunday” and host ABC’s “$100,000 Pyramid.” But he was forced to drop most of his lucrative endorsement deals when he joined the morning show. Meanwhile, pop anchor Lara Spencer, “feels

    • Indonesian man's body reportedly found inside python

      The body of a man who went missing over the weekend was discovered inside the belly of a giant python, French news agency AFP reports, citing local officials. The family of 25-year old Akbar became worried when he did not return home from a trip to harvest palm oil, according to the BBC. Locals in the village of Salubiro on the eastern island of Sulawesi on Monday cut open a 23-foot snake they found bloated and moving awkwardly, AFP said. “We were immediately suspicious that the snake had swallowed Akbar because around the site we found palm fruit, his harvesting tool and a boot,” a senior village official identified as Junaidi told AFP. Junaidi said that the snake swallowed Akbar whole, and
