The top beauty trends aren’t just for the runway. You can tweak the trends into something that gives your everyday looks a boost. That said, it’s not always obvious how to make it happen. So we asked top professional makeup artists for their tips on making the beauty trends work for you:
|Best beauty trend: Freestanding braid
No more walking around with unfashionable rubber bands that break your hair! We saw this sexy beauty trend created by TRESemmé Lead Hair Stylist Jeanie Syfu. To keep small braids in place sans rubber band, follow these simple tips:
1. Apply TRESemmé Curl Activator Spray to ends of braided pieces
2. Press a flat iron on the ends to seal the hair in place
|Best beauty trend: Fuller, polished brows
We loved this vampy brow look from the runway at Wes Gordon's most recent fashion show. The fuller brows instantly give your entire face a lift and add a bit of polish to your look. Sisley Paris professional makeup artist, Monika Borja, reveals the 4-step process that can dramatically change your look.
|Best beauty trend: Strong lips
When makeup is minimal, adding a rich, saturated lipstick can make a perfect statement. Gucci Westman, Global Artistic Director of Revlon, used a brilliant coral lipstick on the runway (Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Siren, available in November for $7.99). "The look is about an effortlessly chic but sporty girl," Westman says. Get the look every day by mixing a coral shade like this with a casual Saturday outfit. Who else loves coral?

|Best beauty trend: Tossable tresses
Every time we run into Whitney Port her hair is perfect. TRESemmé Lead Hair Stylist Mara Roszak let us in on her secret to perfect hair: TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo! "It's an instant texturizer and also refreshes hair in between washes," says Roszak. Another reason to use dry shampoo? To get shiny Jennifer Aniston hair and keep it (even if you have naturally curly hair).
|Best beauty trend: Just enough glow
Bethany Wojtech of Arcona Skincare let us in on a little secret that she used on the runway to make models look even dewier than they already are. She uses Arcona Desert Mist, a dream product that not many people know about. It adds a dewy, not shiny, glow, and you can apply it—even over foundation. The outcome: Effortlessly gorgeous both on and off the runway.
