Every year there are new looks that come out on the runway. This year lightened eyebrows, ombre hair, bright eyeshadows to the brow, and purple-tinged lips are all the rage. These are all trendy looks that simply come and go with new fashion seasons. Unfortunately, Lima doesn’t have any runways, famous makeup artists, or fashion designers to tell us what is in style, leaving us poring over magazines and cringing at the crazy new looks we see. This is where classic looks are meant to come in. Classic looks are looks that remain stylish throughout many seasons, never truly dying. These are looks that symbolize beauty, and look great on most everybody. Sometimes their popularity may fade from the runways, but they are always seen all over the red carpet and on women across the U.S. and the world.
