    Not too cutesy or too bold -- a crimson gloss feels youthful, effortless and chic all at once.

  4. Hair Trend: Pin-Up Pieces

    You don't have to choose an ornate updo just because you're in a wedding dress. Curled layers and lots of shine can make this more basic, tucked-back style feel bridal.

  7. Eye Trend: Subtle Liner

    Hands down, a pencil is the easiest tool to use. Whether it's a standard kohl or a powder- or wax-based pencil, you'll get a precise line that's not too severe.

  8. Eye Trend: Neutral Smoky Eye

    Though more difficult to apply than pencil liner -- you'll need a brush to do it -- powder liner is by far the easiest to blend and layer. If you want a smoky eye, it's the only way to achieve smooth gradation.

    Try: Rimmel Glam'eyes Mono Eye Shadow in Jet Black, $4, Drugstore.com

  9. Eye Trend: Cat-Eye Liner

    A liquid formula lets you create clean lines with the most precision. The key to using moisture-rich liner is to apply it in small feathery strokes and not in one long sweep. Remember, it's easier to add liner than it is to remove it.
