Fall's Classic Revival, Channeling Sophia Loren, and Faux Bobs

My favorite fall editorial thus far is Catherine McNeil for Vogue Australia September - the beautifully feminine pieces (including by beloved Louis Vuitton), Sophia Loren inspired makeup, glamorous poses, and an equally glamorous bob.

You can achieve this glamorous look using these 2 fantastic tutorials:
Here's a video tutorial on how to get a faux bob by Ford Models hair stylist Johnny Lavoy.

And here's another great video on how to get Sophia Loren Inspired makeup up by one of my favorite make-up vloggers, pixiwoo.

These are two really fantastic tutorials that everyone ought to try. The Faux bob is a wonderful way to be spontaneous and try on a new look without committing to a serious hairstyle change. Pair it with the 60s inspired winged eyeliner, and you'll get an incredibly easy, incredibly glamorous look!

Special thanks today to Cut Out +Keep and all the judges for naming me the Fan Favorite of the Ultimate DIY Competition. Over 300 people Favorited/hearted my Chan Luu Inspired Turquoise Wrap bracelet tutorial. :)

Special thanks also to Alexandra of Sparkl.daily for naming me their Blog of the Week.
