Real Inspiration: The Silk Scarf

Fashion’s hottest accessory trend for Fall/Winter is an easy one to wrap your head around – and vice versa!  Silk scarves don’t have to be expensive … check out your local thrift store, or raid your elders’ closets when you’re home for the holidays. Wrap your finds turban-style, wear as a headband, or simply loop around your neck.

You’ll find easy make-up inspiration in the texture and palette of the scarf.  Grab your Stippling Brush and pair the light-reflecting sheen of silk with highlighter on cheeks and browbones. Pull a key color from the scarf and apply to lips or eyes, and you’ve created a glamorously coordinated look that’s right on trend!
