It’s fall, so that means it’s time to clean out your beauty drawer and stock up on the latest beauty products for fall. This season, we’re breaking down the trends for you, without breaking the bank!
Fall 2010 is all about shimmery mauves and dark lavenders on your eye lids. It goes without saying that when highlighting eyes, keep the rest of the face basic and vice versa.
Burnt Lip Colors
Shocking tones of bright oranges ( a la Prada) and gold were seen on the runways this season.
1. Fashion fair lipstick in Ole Orange at Dillard’s, $15
2. NYC Tainted Lip Spa in Copacabana at Ulta, $5
It may appear black out of the tube, but it spreads across your lips in a luscious berry hue, giving off an irresistible, sultry aura. So you can stay on trend but not veer too much towards the goth look.
This trend is all about being a little vampy, a little sultry, and all perfection.
Gem Hues Nails
There’s nothing more enticing than jewel toned nails. Especially for winter, when we’re garbed in camels and nudes.
OPI Caliente Coral Nail Polish at Sephora, $9
Slicked Back Hair
The wet look from the late 80s is making a serious comeback, a la designers Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu.
This stunning pink hue adds a touch of juicy, just pinched look, as seen at Armani and Philip Lim.
If you have eyes that are closer in color to green than blue, red will look stellar on you. We saw this trend at everyone’s favorite new label, Altuzarra and on Rihanna, case closed. Make sure to smudge on your lower lash line, and not above.
If you’re not a fan of the full, Barbie-esque eyelashes, we’d recommend you try out the trend seen at large at Louis Vuitton, Vivienne Tam, Chado Ralph Rucci and YSL.Try putting shimmery white shadow and then dark, big lashes. The effect will be dramatic, perfect for the evening.
