It’s almost Friday, (phew!) and we’re already planning our
weekend adventures. Right now, we’re all about finding those perfect hair and
makeup pairings—terrific twosomes that go together like cupcakes and frosting.
Or like Mary-Kate and Ashley. Or like cats and the Internet. You get the idea.
Read on for four totally tops beauty looks you should def try your hand at this
Beauty must-try #1:
Zendaya’s faux bob and bright lip
Zendaya’s cool coif is surprisingly easy to achieve. Work in a volumizing spray
with a little bit of hold, then use a curling wand to get easy waves for a
slightly messy look. Next, gather hair into a low pony and twist the length
into a bun or braid in a loose weave. Pin the bun or braid at the base of your
scalp so that it’s out of sight. Tousle and pull out small sections to create
the illusion of a cropped cut.

Makeup how-to: Perfecting
the bright lip is all about choosing the right matte formula. The aim is to
pick a shade that won’t dry out your pout and stays creamy throughout the
night. We heart:

Beauty must-try #2:
Miley’s faux ’hawk and cateye
Hair how-to: Miley’s
super fierce updo can be adapted for any hair length, so no need to go full-on
buzzed. Separate out a 4-inch section of hair at the front/top of your head.
Gather the rest of your hair back into a pony that hits at the back of your
head. Use a thin comb to tease out the free section from behind, then hit it
with hairspray and pull it back into a tall pompadour. Spray in place, and
either pin the length down or tuck it into the ponytail.

Makeup how-to: Snag
a perfect cateye with jetblack gel liner. Ed. tip: Use a freshly sharpened
pencil to line your upper lid first, then go over it with an angled brush
dipped in gel liner. Finish with two coats of black mascara and a quick pencil
line on your lower lids.

Beauty must-try #3:
Elle’s sweet headband and rosy cheeks
Hair how-to: Elle’s
sleek ‘n’ straight look requires just a few tools: Break out your straightener,
heat protectant spray and smoothing oil. First, apply a heat protectant spray
to dry hair and comb through. Next, run your straightener over your tresses in
small sections until you’ve worked out all the kinks. Apply a bit of smoothing
oil to your palms and lightly run your hands through your hair, focusing on the
ends. Pop on a head wrap and you’re set!

love Elle’s fresh-face look. Pick a cream blush that matches your natural flush
and add a bit of brown liner to define your eyes. Clear gloss seals the deal!

Beauty must-try #4:
Demi's topknot and bold brows
Hair how-to: Demi’s
rocker-chic look isn’t for the faint of heart. We’re not talking your normal
#Tuesdaytopknot here. Comb back all your hair into a high pony, then use bobby
pins to coil it into a tight bun on the crown of your head. Use a styling spray
and a brush to smooth out any frizzies and keep things sleek.
Bumble and bumble Bb
Does It All Styling Spray, $14, sephora.com
Makeup how-to: Demi’s
topknot totally highlights her face, and we love how she chose to make her
brows super bold. Get the same look by drawing short, hair-like dashes in your
brows with a soft brow pencil.
