    Your classic cat's eye is gorgeous -- but if you're getting a little bored with the look and want to spice things up, you'll love what spring has in store for you. The next great eye makeup trend is graphic eyeliner, which you should think of as the cat eye's cooler, hipper cousin.

    Depending on how dramatic and bold you want to get, graphic eyeliner can make a real statement. Instead of placing one solid line along your upper eyelash and painting it thicker by the outer corners, you're free to allow your imagination to run wild when playing with graphic looks. From precise, thin lines that are applied to the crease to artful arrows that jut out from the eye's corner to thicker, squared-off "wings" worn with no mascara, anything goes with graphic eyeliner.

    Here are 4 great tutorials for 4 different graphic eyeliners looks to help you get started.

    Leggings may look like pants, with their deceptively thick fabric and ability to turn any pair of boots into a fashion "do." Leggings may even act like pants, keeping your legs warm enough to make you think you're wearing, well, actual pants. But don't fall for it, guys -- leggings are NOT, nor will they ever be, true pants. Therefore, the number one rule of wearing leggings? Keep thy butt hidden at all times!

Even the suede ones.

    I have some very specific reasons your ankle boots should be a year-long staple.

    Awards season and its star, the Oscars, are great for a number of reasons. For the style-obsessed, that walk down the red carpet is sure to provide some fabulous moments. There are the dresses so gorgeous we'll remember them forever, and then there are the looks we'll remember ... for other waaay less glamorous reasons. Over the years, there have been just as many cringe-worthy gowns as stunning ones. And with the 2014 Oscars this Sunday, we're sure to see a lot more of the good -- and the very, very bad.

    Strangely, it's the weird and outrageous takes on style that stay with us, maybe even more than the heavenly couture that floats down past the flashbulbs. It got me thinking: We're always looking to celebrities for inspiration when it comes to how we dress and style our hair. Why not see how the average person looks trying on their more, um, "unique" outfits?

    The Golden Globes red carpet the other night reinforced my belief that a brilliant orange-red color is so ultra gorgeous and flattering. More of us regular people should be wearing it more often, including me, I say! However, it can definitely be kind of intimidating to buy something so bold and bright, let alone wear it.

    I mean, what if you look like Ronald McDonald instead of, oh, say Lupita Nyong’o or Emma Watson? Fear not! There are some easy ways to make sure you look totally gorgeous embracing this trend.
