Being a "Haus frau" is a very good thing. Just ask Leighton Meester and Molly Sims, who showed up for Julie Haus's first-ever New York runway show. The intimate affair featured bright colors, bold prints, and a few cute dresses that I wouldn't mind wearing in the hot sun right now.
The hair and makeup were fresh and fun, with a hint of rebellious streak thrown in for good measure. "It's a little messy, yet kind of neat," said Dwight O'Neal, who created the makeup look for The Balm. "It's the everyday woman doing her makeup. We didn't want anything too dramatic or too perfect." Check out the lips to see what he means; to get the look, O'Neal's team dabbed Prom Queen Stainiac on the center of the lips, then filled in the remainder of the lips with Plump Your Pucker gloss in Cocoa My Coconut. Instead of using a brush to spread the color, makeup artists used their fingers — easy!
