    Smile her neat bob scraped back into a ponytail.

    From Unmasked: Eva Longoria leaves the house without a scrap of make-up | Mail Online

    In the text below, what do the words in bold mean?

    Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria abandoned her high-maintenance look for a quiet evening out in Hollywood last night.
    The actress, who is usually primped and preened, left the house without a lick of makeup, her neat bob scraped back into a ponytail.

    Re: her neat bob scraped back into a ponytail.

    "without a lick of makeup" = without any makeup

    neat bob = hair cut in a particular way : http://frillr.com/files/images/47vr4ao.jpg

    "scraped back into a ponytail" = the hair is brushed back and held at the back of the head. http://images.chron.com/blogs/before...tail%20002.jpg
