10 New Hair and Makeup ideas

Got a big party tonight but no idea what to do with your hair and makeup? Don’t worry—we’ve got 10 foolproof evening beauty ideas that are guaranteed to make you the belle of any ball. Pick one (or two!) and get gorgeous.

Slip a sparkly clip into your side part for easy elegance in 60 seconds or less. Use gel to tame flyaways and keep your big Rita Hayworth—esque curls goop-free. “Just remember to pick one glitzy piece,” says celebrity hair pro Erin Anderson. “Or if you’re inspired by the trend of piling them on, choose hair accessories that complement each other.” Keep the rest of your body bling (earrings, necklaces, bracelets) to the bare minimum and let your barrette take center stage!

Rihanna’s lips are a five-alarmer! Love how she dresses up a simple black dress with a fire-engine red pout and electric blue liner. Be bold—go bright! Try CoverGirl Perfect Blend Eyeliner in Cobalt and Outlast All-Day Lipcolor in Ever Red-dy and steal her look.

    Bold, natural brows

    She may be known for her hot bod, but look at those brows. Megan Fox’s bold, defined arches are so much sexier than thin, overplucked ones. She’s working the thick, classic look of old-Hollywood stars like Elizabeth Taylor—a beauty trend that’s looking better than ever these days.

Contrasting eyes, lips and cheeks

Balance dark, smoky eyes with pale pink lipstick and glowy cheeks. For budge-proof nighttime color, use a black liner all over the lid and dust a matching shadow on top to set, says makeup artist for N.Y.C. New York Color Mathew Nigara. To get that shimmery, ethereal look, apply a highlighter to your cheekbones. (For fair skin, try an iridescent pink and use gold on olive or darker tones.) This is a look that’ll go with both your badass leather jacket and a pretty party dress.

The grown-up ponytail

While side ponies might make you think of the ’80s, there’s nothing old-school about a polished, curly ponytail. Wear yours with a deep side part and long, side-swept bangs like Debra Messing for a casually sexy look. To create waves, spritz each section with a flexible-hold hairspray before using a curling iron, says Anderson, to keep your pony from falling flat before the night is over.

Major mascara

Nothing’s sexier than long, fluttery lashes. Remember, when you pile on the mascara, keep the rest of your look simple: just lip gloss and natural-looking blush. For even more drama, you could try a pair of falsies (lashes, that is). The trick to getting the fake ones to look real, says makeup artist Mathew Nigara, is to “cut a strip of lashes like—N.Y.C. Eyelashes in Glamour Black—into three equal portions. Glue one toward the inner corner, one piece in the center and the other slanted upward on the end.”

    Skip the traditional fussy hairstyles and just give hair a sexy side part. Add a bit of polish to your do—without getting into perfectionist territory—by curling a few random pieces. “Using a curling iron here and there is the key to enhancing your look and not taking over the whole style,” says Anderson.

Ruby red lips are a staple for a glamorous night on the town, but we’re adding raspberry lipstick—like Alexis Bledel’s—to our must-have nighttime makeup list. To get lips that last into late night, try applying with your finger, says Nigara, then blot. Repeat. Apply mascara and dust on some blush and you’re good to go. The lipstick will last even longer than if you just swipe it on straight from the tube—you might not even have to worry about fitting the tube into your tiniest clutch for touch-ups! For a shade like Bledel’s, try Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lipstick in Stay Pinkberry.

Just because you don’t have long, flowing waves doesn’t mean you can’t pull off a fun party-girl hairstyle! Take cues from Ginnifer Goodwin, who made her cropped do look sleek and sophisticated by pushing her bangs to the side and using gel to fancy up her look. For flake-free, stay-put hair, try Bumble and Bumble Bb. Gel.

    The glam ballerina bun

    A polished ballerina bun is the LBD of evening hairstyles. Drew Barrymore’s style looks complicated—and we’re sure a pro had a hand in this—but there is a way to whip up a similar do without expert supervision. Simply pull hair back into a low ponytail, leaving out a section of hair underneath; secure with an elastic. Fold the tail in half and pin ends under. Wind the loose hair around the base of your pony, hiding the elastic band and any loose ends. Bobby pin in place. What’s more classic and foolproof than a celebrity-tested chignon?

You know your TIU workouts sculpt strong, toned, sexy muscles. But here’s an added bonus for ya: Exercise also helps cleanse and smooth your gorgeous skin. REALLY!! Here’s the deal: A sweat sesh increases blood flow, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells and flushes out the waste (aka: unhealthy stuff).

But how do you keep that glow going long after you leave the gym? We checked in with New York City-based dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman and celeb esthetician Renee Rouleau for their tips – plus a few of our own. Buh-bye breakouts. Hello, radiant skin!

1. Clean Faces = Clear Face

We love a smokin’ cat eye or beautiful bronzer – but save those stunning looks for after the gym. Wash that make up off pre-workout! When you’re hitting your workout hard, “sweat escapes through the pores,” says Dr. Engelman. “If you have a layer of makeup on, it causes a blockage, which can lead to pimples.” Keep some cleansing wipes in your gym bag for when you’re in a pinch. We’re obsessed with Yes to Cucumber facial wipes, and they’re great for travel, too!

2. Cherish the Skin You’re In

If you’re heading outside for your Booty Call, we’ve got you covered!! Make sure to break out the sunscreen, even in the cool fall weather! (Katrina and I stash a mini tube in our sports bras during outdoor workouts!) Dr. Engelman advises applying a mineral broad-spectrum sunscreen that shields you from both UVA and UVB rays. “That will protect you from the sun and environmental pollutants,” says the doc. And don’t forget SPF on your lips! We wear our K & K Lip Balm every day!

3. Drink Up Buttercup!

“When you exercise, your skin loses water due to evaporation, leaving the skin dehydrated,” explains Rouleau. This can lead to clogged pores and premature aging. But there’s an easy fix: We recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces a day, and add 8 oz per 30 minutes of exercise. Mix fruit into your water for a little something extra! If you’re on the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, you know how much we talk about hydration and your metabolism too!

4. Wipe Down Your Gear

At the gym or in a group class, swipe an antibacterial wipe over your equipment before you get going. Then, try not to touch your face during your workout, says Rouleau: “You don’t want to introduce bacteria to the skin, which can possibly result in new breakouts, or the spreading of existing breakouts.”

5. Glow On Girl

Wash your face with a gentle cleanser as soon as you finish your sweat sesh. Then, apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp. “Glycerin in moisturizer helps bind water molecules to the skin, giving you that soft, supple feeling!” Dr. Engelman raves.

*** We also dab coconut oil under our eyes and on our cheek bones right after a shower. It feels amazing!

6. Beauty Starts Within

Remember, what you put in your body is so important. Recover from your workouts with your Coconut Kale Beauty Smoothie recipe. Its leafy greens are packed with folate that help protect and hydrate skin. Plus, the greens’ vitamin C helps fight aging and keeps your immune system as strong as your muscles! (Rouleau suggests getting a dose of C every day.) You can add 2 oz aloe vera, which can prevent cell damage in your skin.
