Guess what, bangs are back! Renee Zellweger proved it on her recent appearance on the cover of Vogue were she sported and "inspired the total bob cut with great bangs", says John Blaine.

Heads Up!



Star Styling with Celebrity Stylist John Blaine



"Since her recent appearance on the cover of Vogue, Renee Zelleweger has inspired the total bob cut with great bangs," John declares. "Bangs are so important for this season. I just cannot stress this enough."


A great cut is essential for a great bob. "Make sure your stylist knows to add flair to the bob cut by creating a heavy jagged texture," John says. "Razor and then point cut the ends for movement and maximum volume."



To create Renee's look:



Towel dry the hair.



Apply a dab of gt2b Playful Crme Pomade and Full of Yourself Mousse at the roots.





Uses gt2b Smoothed Over Balm from mid shaft through the ends. "This will really enhance the overall volume while keeping a smooth, sleek shape."



Blow dry the hair forward using a flat paddle brush. Drying the root area first is important because "this where you get your lift!" John recommends drying the remainder of the hair in sections, using a downward motion. For a meticulous finish to either bob, use gt2b Playful crme pomade twirled on the ends to shape and contour the fringe pieces that frame the face and neck.



Finish it off with an all over light spritz of gt2b Dazzling Shine Spray for a vibrant sheen.






LIPS



Lips are au naturel, neutral pink's or nude are ok. Ladies who love red don't fret, glamour is always in with Ramy's Casual Sex, a lush red lip color to. Another fabulous trend this spring is stained lips, just a hint of color, matte for super modern approach. To acheive this look simply moisturize lips with a product like


Fran Wilson "Aloe Lip Care"


or a 2-in-1 product like


Smooth Lips "Anti-Feathering Lipstick Base"


which moisturizes and keeps lipstick from not smudging.
Next apply a loose powder to your lips and then dab your favorite lip color on with your finger and Viola, your tres chic! To create an ultra glam look add a super shine with products like


Bloom "Lip Lacquer"








EYES



Yes, you too can wear pastels! A fabulous trio is


Bloom "Eye Shadow Pallett"


with Sparkle, Peony & Amethyst. Here's an easy way to make blue, pink or any shade of purple wearable - even if you're not a runway model. Rather then apply the shadow to your full eyelid and end up looking like a throw back from the eighties, subtly outline your upper and lower lashline with a hint of sheer color. Using a smaller brush like


Lancome "Le Smudger"


for application will work wonders! To finish off your ultra chic look add mascara to both top and bottom lashes and get rid of clumps with


Tweezerman's "ILash comb"


. Although classic black will always do the trick, have a little fun this season with a different shade of mascara like


Bloom's "Mascara"


- in Amethyst. You can't miss with Bloom's new extended line of colors!






SKIN



Spring skin is not super matte nor super shiny, just in between, soft matte. To get the look - sponge on a liquid foundation and using a large fluffy brush like


Take One Essentials "Work It Brush"


, lightly add loose powder, this will leave you with a fresh looking complexion.
Products like Bloom's liquid foundation and


Lancome's "Photogenic Sheer Loose Powder"


will help. To complete the look lightly apply


Z New York "Loose Shimmer Powder"


in Ritz to add a subtle, natural sun-kissed glow.
