This holiday season, glammed-up is not the goal. Foundation should be so sheer it's transparent. Eyelids should be dotted with shimmery shadows, and the apples of your cheeks should be slightly aflush with blush. Hair should be tousled and loose. That means no updos loaded with starchy products. We want wispy curls to fall softly over our shoulders. Everything about hair and makeup should give the appearance of being easy, but to achieve the look is anything but. The goal is subtle, bare and beautiful.

Hollywood glam often is dramatic: pouty red lips, luscious lashes and rosy cheeks. But in keeping with this season's red-carpet beauty trends, I predict that tonight's Academy Award-goers will display dewier, barely made-up faces.   The trendlet The fresh-faced makeup look follows the dear old adage: Less is more. But let's be clear here: This is not a No Makeup Monday moment, when you post a selfie after washing your face. Cosmetics are used, just not heavily. Foundation is optional and skin should have a dewy shine.

It was three years ago that Shannon O'Connor applied her first bit of makeup. O'Connor, now a 16-year-old junior at Bartram Motivation, was greeted with less than enthusiastic reviews. "My mom . . . was like, 'Get that off. You look like a freak.' My dad told me I looked like a ghost. " But with the help of friends and magazines, O'Connor refined her technique, and Mom and Dad "finally just left me alone. I was like 15 when I started wearing makeup that really matched.

JEKYLL. 8 and 9 tonight, BBC America. Some of the scariest fun on TV this summer can be found in James Nesbitt's eyes. The Northern Ireland-born star of BBC America's "Jekyll" goes from melancholy to maniacal - and back again - in what looks like a blink during the modern-day adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. " A blink on the screen can mean an eternity in the makeup chair, though. "Well, it took a while," Nesbitt said of the transition during an interview last month at the Television Critics Association's summer meetings in Beverly Hills.

Because of the recent bad weather, the teams in the Del-Val League may be forced to squeeze in as many games as they can in one week. One team truly in a bind is Sun Valley, which plays a makeup game today against Penn Wood, then is scheduled to play tomorrow at Chester, Wednesday in another makeup against Harriton, Thursday at Glen Mills, and then Friday the Vanguards are listed to play a nonleague game at Unionville. Under PIAA pitching rules, a schedule like that is certain to test the mettle of any staff: A pitcher who goes seven innings in one outing is required three days rest.

DEAR ABBY: Our son and his wife have blessed us with a darling 6-year-old granddaughter, "Sophie," who is the love of our lives. We live nearby and are very close. When we received her kindergarten school photo, she had on heavy lipstick and light eye shadow. My husband and I couldn't contain our shock. Her parents said they thought she looked beautiful, and Sophie was made up that way because "she wanted to. " We were speechless. When we pick her up on weekends, she sometimes wears makeup, too. It makes her look like a 30-year-old.

The Max Factor Beauty Museum is an exquisite little repository of glamour, illusion and absurdity that could exist only in Hollywood. The 2-year-old museum is housed on the first floor of the Max Factor Building, an art deco landmark less than a block from one of the seediest stretches of Hollywood Boulevard. Here visitors may study at close range what are said to be the first false eyelashes, created by Max Factor in 1910 for actress June Haver, who wore them in "Temple of Venus.

The fans who paid $1 to sit in the bleachers for a doubleheader at County Stadium got quite a show for their buck. The Milwaukee Brewers made the biggest ninth-inning comeback in their history in the first game of a makeup doubleheader yesterday, scoring seven runs in the ninth before Jose Hernandez's solo homer in the 10th beat the visiting Houston Astros, 10-9. In the second game, Jeromy Burnitz hit a three-run homer and Jason Bere pitched eight strong innings as the Brewers swept the twinbill with a 6-1 victory over the reeling Astros, losers of seven in a row. "I don't remember something quite like that before," Hernandez said of the first-game rally.

Not too long ago, the Upper Darby school board couldn't say enough nice things about its superintendent, Richard F. Dunlap Jr. It wrote in his 2014-15 school year evaluation: "Performance is superior, far exceeding expectations. " A year ago, he got an 8 percent pay raise, bringing his salary to $194,866, and a fresh five-year contract. Now Dunlap is out, having spent the last six weeks on paid leave before officially retiring on Wednesday. Since July 12, he's apparently been the subject of six executive sessions of the board, including one meeting in which 24 staffers were brought in to testify.

Question: My 22-year-old daughter is lovely, kind, and smart. She rarely dated in high school, and this was a big disappointment for her, but I assumed it was because she is 5-foot-10 and was very quiet and shy. I told her college boys would be taller and to get involved in extracurriculars and things would be better. She had a happy college experience, top grades, head of her student professional association, and plenty of friends, football, and extracurricular activities. But very minimal dating.

PLEASE BE INFORMED that I consider myself as a small part of the solution to the divisiveness and upheaval currently ravaging our nation. I speak in particular about the killing of African-Americans and law-enforcement officials, as well. While marching and mass protest can be effective and ineffective, depending on the emotional climate and subject matter, I embrace another alternative which is more intimate. I start with examining my heart to make sure that I hold no malice, ill will or hatred toward anyone.

The offer was simple. An artist was organizing a come-as-you-are exploration of older women's faces - devoid of makeup. With hair untended. That invitation, delivered to 20 friends between the ages of 65 and 73, came from South Philadelphia painter Ellensue Gross, who has long been fascinated by facial features. "In them," she said, "I really wanted to capture the character, emotions, and spirit of my subjects. " Along the way came a growing realization that women felt enormous pressure to not visibly age - and were relentlessly wooed by the marketplace to follow the fantasy.

Turn around, bright eyes! The trendlet Brightly lined eyes, that is. Purple, magenta, turquoise, hot pink, and even sunset yellow pencils (and powders) are doing the viva la summer jig in our makeup bags. Talk about pop! Where does it come from? The '80s, of course. Back in the decade of extravagance and bad fashion, we favored colored eyeliner from the blue and green families. Navy, midnight, hunter, turquoise, and sapphire hues gave Cyndi Lauper's hazel eyes life.

Makeup is about creating the illusion of perfection. The right foundation makes skin appear flawless. Concealer camouflages under-eye bags. Dusting charcoal powders on cheeks hollows them out.

The sight of her aunt's being escorted out of a Donald Trump rally in South Carolina was too much for the celebrity makeup artist from Hatfield, Montgomery County. You may remember that earlier this month, Rose Hamid, 56, stood in silent protest of remarks by the GOP frontrunner that linked refugees to ISIS. Trump supporters began chanting "Trump! Trump! Trump!" Hamid, who is Muslim and covers her hair with a scarf, was removed from the rally. Pinned to her shirt was an eight-pointed yellow star bearing the word "Muslim," similar to the yellow Star of David that Jews were forced to wear throughout Nazi-occupied Europe.

It's that time again: New Year's resolutions are in full effect. And in between vowing to eat right, work out more, get sufficient sleep, and keep a calendar, who has time to maintain a new beauty regimen? The good news is, you won't have to. Just commit to your eyebrows. "A strong, chiseled brow is a very important beauty statement," said Karen Grant, senior global analyst and vice president of beauty at the NPD Group. In other words, brows frame the face. Did your overtweezing in the '90s leave your brows sad, sad, sad?
