Top Fall 2009 Beauty Trends: Makeup

Gray Nail Polish
Speaking of black nail polish, dark neutrals and neutral metallics are still in, but the newest neutral color for your fingertips is, yes, gray. Not a big shock considering gray has been the color for fall/winter the last couple seasons and continues to be a huge presence this year—but we’re always up for a new way to wear it. We suggest N.Y.C. Nail Polish—which offers plenty in the gray-to-silver range on the cheap—available at Wal-Mart, Target, wherever.

Purple Nail Polish

Purple appeared on the fall hue radar a few seasons ago, but rather than being a here-and-gone trend it’s kind of become a fall staple. This season, we like dramatic purple fingertips—which is always a great way to don a trendy hue without having to spend a bundle. It’s all about the drama, so make your nails eye-catching (in other words, skip sweet lavender shades and go for something bold—like this Sally Hansen Nail Color Pen in Purple.

    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?
