We asked Susan to review some of the world’s leading designers for a spring 2014 runway beauty recap!  Susan shared what to expect when it comes to beauty trends.

Here’s the scoop …..

 

1.       From the DKNY show-

Look for lips and nails in Orange, Tangerine, Pink Grapefruit, Raspberry- bright and ‘tangy.’  Blot the color so it looks more like a richly stained lip.  Eyelid and cheek color is ‘barely there.’

 

2.       From Marc Jacobs & Nars-

The focus for the eyes is on the liner; think teal, turquoise, emerald, amethyst, electric blue.  In a departure from previous years, think  bright colored liner under the bottom lashes  and inside on the water line-top and bottom. For the more faint of heart, smudge the color under the bottom lashes rather than having a clean line. Keep  the entire upper lid soft in color ( pale coral, pink, putty, white).

3.        From Wes Gordon- young designer in demand

Lots of metallic for spring …. think a sweep of copper, bronze, silver, platinum on the entire lid and nothing more- except mascara. Highlight the cheeks with champagne shimmer ( golden or pink) , keeping the lips in softer shades from shimmery nudes to baby pinks and corals with a hint of shimmer. Easy to translate to ‘real life’.

 

4.        The Row, J. Mendel, Narciso

These collections all showed that  ‘effortless makeup’ look – neutrals, nudes, bronzed cheeks, with a touch of illumination.  Its all about healthy, glowing skin that appears not to have makeup on at all.

5 Things We Love About Fall

Here are 5 things we love about fall:

1. Cozy Sweaters – how great is this new camel sweater from J.Crew?  Classic with the right amount of flair.

2. Structured bags – you can’t go wrong with a black and gold statement piece like this one.

3. Rosy Cheeks – get that fall blush… fresh from an autumn hike!  Try COLORME in Orchid!

4. Floral prints – we love a mix of the right October blooms! Slip into floral loafers from Acne.

5. Fall lips- one thing is for certain, you need the perfect fall lip color!  Try our COLORESSENTIAL in London! 

Color Trend: Blue

We’re seeing blue everywhere this fall!  And, we can’t seem to get enough of it.  Shop this paisley print dress which is Colette by Colette Dinnigan!  Pair it with an adorable pouch by Kenzo Embroidered Eye Leather Pouch and a lovely pair of flats from Stella McCartney.   And, of course, you must complete the look with our COLOREYEDEFINE in Turquoise and Topaz (so you aren’t too matchy matchy)!
