Simple, sultry and nude but not what you think

There are always a few strings that tie a night of red carpet beauty and style together. Last night on the 2012 Emmy red carpet, we started to see fall trends seeping through while still staying true to the last days of summer.

Keratin Perfect SmoothPretty simple waves

Heidi Klum, Clare Danes and Sofia Vergara all went with simple wavy hairstyles during the Emmys festivities and all three channeled the light-hearted colors of summer (not to mention, Sofia Vergara could have been a beach bound mermaid in that sparkly gown). To get waves like theirs, use Keratin PerfectSmooth Blowout Booster to tame your frizz and give your locks the sheen and shine factor.

The cat-eye

Julie Bowen, Zooey Deschanel and Girls star Zosia Mamet made their eyes pop with sexy cat-eye makeup and each came out on top with alluring, glam looks. Zosia kept a fresh face with a thin cat-eye while the Modern Family winner Julie Bowen mixed her cat-eye with a smoky eye for a more dramatic look. Zooey added a berry lip that was a perfect match for her icy blue dress and pale complexion.

Always a favorite, nude lips lent a helpful hand to the fresh faces of Hayden Panettiere, Emily VanCamp and Kerry Washington. If you're fair skinned, go for a peachy nude like glo minerals Super Star Gloss in Rose Gold. For medium skin tones, use a more beige shade like Mark Make it Rich Lip Crayons in Hey Honey. Darker skinned gals should go for chocolate undertones like Bilbao by NARS.
