Here is Part 2 of THE PEP LIST OF TOP BEAUTY & GROOMING TRENDS which the stars picked up in 2011.

NUDE MAKE-UP. As seen in Preview Magazine's November issue—with Nora Aunor on the cover—nude make-up is one beauty trend that made waves in 2011.

Replacing the smoky eye make-up and ruby red lips of last year are shades of beige, caramel, pale orange and light pink.

These soft tones allow the natural glow of the skin to shine through.

To pull off the look, it is important to have clear and blemish-free skin.

That isn't a tough task for our celebrities, as most of them take very good care of their skin.

Celebrities give this beauty tip about this trend: Cleanse, tone, and moisturize twice a day, and never go to bed with makeup on.

SPOTTED PICKING UP THIS TREND: Gretchen Barretto, Heart Evangelista, Nikki Gil.

STRONG EYEBROWS. Makeup in 2011 paid extra attention to the brow.

Since nude eye shadow can barely be seen—hence its name—spotlight is directed toward the eyebrows.

Channeling actress Brooke Shields in her heyday, the new eyebrow shape is fuller, with a boxier body and a more defined arch.

To achieve this look, many artists use the angled brush to apply eyebrow makeup rather than a pencil.

Choose natural colors that complement the skin tone, such as burnt brown.

SPOTTED PICKING UP THIS TREND: Kim Chiu, Bea Alonzo, Garrie Concepcion.

SOFT WAVES. Much like the carefree young Hollywood style, sported by the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus, our own local celebrities have taken to the soft wavy look.

Versus the polished barrel curls, which needs a curling iron, this rather natural look is easier and quicker to achieve.

To do it, simply twist your hair into a tight bun and fan dry.

How long should you keep your hair in a bun? Between a couple of hours and a whole day, depending on how manageable your hair is.

If you have naturally straight hair which doesn't curl easily, try not to apply conditioner before the process.

Also, try spraying some styling mousse on your hair before putting it in a bun.

And then, when it's time to party, let it loose—and voila! Perfect waves!

SPOTTED PICKING UP THIS TREND: Angel Aquino, Solenn Heussaff, Jasmine Curtis.

BRUNETTE BEAUTY. Who says blondes have all the fun?

Most of our ladies seemed to enjoy being brunettes this year.

Adding just a hint of color to their natural black tresses, dark brown shades from chestnut to chocolate made the stars' crowning glory glow dramatically under the spotlight.

Of course, finding the perfect hair color is not the easiest of beauty tasks.

There are certain rules to follow—like, pick a color that matches your skin tone, and don't go more than two shades lighter (or darker) than your original hair color.

if you're the adventurous type, you can always experiment until you find the right shade that suits you.

SPOTTED PICKING UP THIS TREND: Angelica Panganiban, Jessy Mendiola, Ashley Gosiengfiao.

ON GUYS: THE "COCO MARTIN" LOOK. We couldn't find a name for this particular look so we decided to call it the "Coco Martin" hair, as we've seen this prominently on the actor.

The idea is to cut your hair clean (you can always ask your local barber to do this for you), and part it on one side.

Set with a non-glossy product like hair wax, and brush neatly to the side, keeping bangs from falling on the forehead.

From the front to the back, neatly tuck the hair in place for that "dream boy" look.
