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.

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.

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.

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 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.
