Instead of loud makeup, let your hair do all of the work. This rough cut has the elegance of a bob, but the choppy layers like a shag that create a lived in feel. For the ultimate cool girl flare, Ciara opted for a pink frosted lipstick, sculpted cheeks and a subtle smoky eye. Set your makeup, rake your fingers through your hair and you're good to go!

If you want to experiment with blonde but you’re afraid of breakage or committing to color, opt for a clip on bang instead. Dust your lids with silver shadow and top your lips with a creamy nude lipstick.

For daytime events ditch the dark shadows in favor of warm coppery tones with a little shimmer. Dust your lower water line for an added ethereal glow and swipe a pink frosted lipstick over your pout.
