Fall is on its way…you may not feel it yet but it is about to arrive.
It is a magical time of year and the colors are too! We gradually put away our summer wear and pull out our fall clothes for cooler weather. Look effortless this fall with a few easy pieces in beauty and fashion.
I attended this year’s Fashion Group International fall/winter fashion preview in New York City this past April and my former boss the fabulous designer, Diane Von Furstenberg,hosted it and moderated a panel.I can’t get enough of her and her fabulous fashions.
I got to get a sneak peek into what colors of make-up and fashions you will be FALLing in love with.
The colors of the season are a mixed beauty bag of tricks!
Here are a few must haves to update your face wardrobe with:
Skin has never been more in! Take care of it! There are so many new products and formulas. There is really no excuse to why you can’t. Looking good takes a little work but is so worth it.
Ready-to-wear shades for fall and winter are: The color of wine will be sublime along with warm nude, pink fuschia and classic crimson red for your lips.
Eyes can be a mix and match blend of black, white, honey, soft violet, merlot, deep blue, gray, glam gold, and sterling silver. A mixture of matte and shimmer on the face will help you look up-to-date.
Dark, vamp, smoky eyes are so yesterday. Instead define your eyes with a shadow, rich or bright gem colored pencils, and a touch of black or brown under them. Black liner is a staple in my makeup kit, although jewel tone shades are so much more fun and pretty! Some hues I like to use are teal, blue, purple, and green. These shades also make the whites of the eyes look brighter.
The perfect eyebrow is always in fashion. Consult a brow stylist for a personalized, updated look.If you happen to live in sunny Jacksonville Florida;John Brent at Chocolate Blonde Salon is the guy for you! If you happen to live in LA…Damone Roberts is the man!
For the daring, Paperself Lashes come in a decorative array of designs. For example, lashes in the shape of a butterfly, a bird, or even a fish. Faux lashes with tiny gemstones are trending now too.
Lasting Shellac and Gel nails are in the limelight. Manicures and pedicures have never been more popular. It’s a way to add a little color to your life; the shades and possibilities are endless.From OPI to Revlon you can rock some amazing shades.
Hair color trends “WOW” in shades like copper fields,winter peach and toasted grains…Aveda has some amazing new hues.
Men continue to be getting into taking better care of their appearance. From teeth, whitening at home systems, like Supersmile, to getting deep cleansing facials and having their eyebrows groomed. It is a new beauty frontier for men.
For clothing & accessories:
Clothing colors:Mykonos blue, samba, acai, linden green, koi, turbulence gray and of course the color of the year emerald, all predicted by Pantone the color experts are hot this year.
Have the courage to wear anything that is animal print or anything with it in it, like a scarf, shoes, purse or earrings! Think Shad Khan and the Jaguars!
Brighten up your complexion with winter white, shiny materials and sequins.
Out with sky-high heels and into sensible heights that are pretty for our back and feet!
Hose is making a comeback! Warm up to nude hose thanks to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. In addition, black opaque, artsy patterns and textured hose are in for this fall/winter.
Men are seeing a need to be more fashionable too. Not the usual safe dress shirt and khaki pants. Guys are taking a hint from the men of Italy. A fearless way of dressing that includes bare ankles (no socks), slim suits and unique color combinations for shirts, jackets and ties.
So express yourself, take care of yourself, and remember to be yourself…and you will always be in fashion.
