Top Fall 2009 Beauty Trends: Makeup

Black/Gray Lips
Black lips
Yes, black and gray lipsticks loomed large on the runway for fall. No, we don’t imagine all of us will be able to pull off this particular trend—but it’s still worth noting. Because, quite frankly, a few short years ago who would have thought we’d be walking around in black nail polish without having oncoming pedestrians cross to the opposite side of the street? Heading to the family reunion in Ohio? Er, skip it (unless being uninvited to future reunions is your goal). But for an evening at that new club in your hottest LBD? We say why not? You could go to a store like Hot Topic and buy the stuff all the kids are wearing, but if you’re not quite ready for goth—try an almost-black shade like Black Cherry from Milani, $3.49 at

    About 4 years ago I was doing the smokey eye look but I was still hooked on having a bright color on my lips then my husband recommended that a more natural or nude color on my lips would look much better to him, he was right. Don’t get me wrong, beautiful shades of red and other shades look great too, but for me I fell in love with the nude lip and smokey eyes, also I was at my local drugstore the other day looking for a different shade of nail color, and I found the grey shades, they look so new and great, can’t wait to try them !! Thumbs up to the fashionistas who think outside the box !!

    Whenever I wear makeup I tend to focus on my eyes. So I’m basically clueless when it comes to lip make up except lip gloss.Anyhow I’m only 16 so I’m not looking for lipstick for everyday use, but for special occasions. This past week I was at an event where I realized a little lip color would have benefited my outfit.But I’m clueless on what colors would look good on me. Everytime I’ve worn lipstick in the past it’s looked pretty bad. I’ve used nude colors which made me look creepy and light pinks which looked kinda trashy. Should i go for browns? Reds? Which colors look best for my tan skin tone?
