"I do some version of the smoky eye every day. Ever since I was 13, I've had no problem wearing midnight-worthy eye makeup at 9 A.M. For me it's like slipping into a comfortable old shoe. I feel so good in it, I don't care what anyone else thinks. And I love ginormous hair—lots of teasing, kind of Brigitte Bardot...or Dolly Parton...or, okay, maybe RuPaul. Now that I have three kids, I've had to deflate the hair a bit—less time to cultivate the height. And I never leave the house without earrings—big ones. You won't see me in a pair of diamond studs. A cocktail ring, or two, never hurts either. I'm known for losing my jewelry, though, so nothing's real."
Signature Style Rule #3. Experiment a little. "Once a month, try a different shade of eyeshadow or lipstick, and see how you like it," says Roncal. "If it doesn't feel right, you don't have to wear it again. But maybe it'll feel great."
