Whenever a celebrity makes a drastic change to their wardrobe, makeup or hair, we take notice. That’s exactly what we did when Jamie-Lynn Sigler recently stepped out with blunt bangs, debuting her new look at the Tracey Reese fashion show during New York Fashion Week.
If you want to try this bold look but might be hesitant to make the drastic cut, simply try the Dancing with the Stars Bango Tango Extensions ($22: folica.com) or the Hairdo Clip-In Bangs ($29: QVC.com) which allow you to achieve this look without commitment.

Whether it’s to increase brand recognition or simply build up a healthy stockpile of Facebook fans, some retailers go all in when it comes to their social media giveaways. And with everything from appliances to bachelorette parties on offer, the prizes are nothing to scoff at (or withhold your Facebook fandom from).
Our friends from The High Low share a look at the 10 best prizes out there:
The hottest makeup trend stepping off the runways is natural minimalism. From Diane Von Furstenberg to Derek Lam, using makeup to get a no makeup look is all the rave. Makeup artists used toners, primers and highlighters to enhance the models’ natural features, all while making them appear as though they don’t have anything on at all!
Now, you can recreate the no makeup look in three simple steps…
o Apply Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 ($52, Biologique-Recherche.com) to entire face with a cotton pad. This liquid lotion, also known as the “facial in a bottle,” prepares skin by exfoliating and toning. The amazing vitamin-enriched exfoliating potion gently purifies, hydrates, tones, controls sebum and balances the skin, to achieve the perfect canvas.
o Once skin is prepped, apply Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Makeup Color Base in Pearl White ($50, KohGenDoCosmetics.com) to sculpture and highlight the face, which will make some features appear prominent and others recede. This base cream contains micronized pearl powders for an optical smoothing and brightening effect of the skin.
o For a sheer finish, Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Mineral Finishing Powder ($24, Dermablend.com) evens out skin tone and helps minimize skin redness. The powder can also be used for delicate highlighting on the high points of the face, such as the forehead and nose, as well as on the décolleté.
Get a no makeup look in no time!

One of my favorite looks of the show was this figure-flattering tangerine top paired with loose flowing cropped trousers in an icy blue.
And my show fave: this gorgeous lace overlay dress. Who would have guessed that lilac and tangerine would complement eachother so well?
