Lancôme has signed YouTube makeup-artistry phenom Michelle Phan to be the brand’s official video makeup artist, making it the first luxury brand to have a social media superstar on its roster. Phan, a 22-year-old Tampa, Florida, native, has over 106,407,340 views on her own YouTube channel of makeup tutorials, so it strikes us as a pretty good marketing move to bring her on board. Don’t be shocked if/when other brands follow suit.

I just want to prepare you now: You’re going to be seeing a lot of gray this fall. Gray eye makeup, gray nail polish, gray clothes, the works. And while all that may sound dark, gloomy and kind of depressing, I promise that it’s not. Gray is a great smoky-eye alternative: It gives you the intensity of black without the hardness and decreases the threat of the dreaded raccoon-eyes look. I like how Sienna Miller’s makeup artist, Kate Lee, paired her gray shadow with a low-luster pale-pink lipstick. For tricks of the trade on getting your gray on for fall: Set up an appointment with Ally or Misha at Holiday. 949.642-4040
