This fall promises to bring ‘Fall’ back in a big way, especially with its fashions. So, why should beauty be any different? Fall fashions are using some of our summer pieces and adding layers over them. For example, peep toe shoes worn alone in the summer will now be worn with matching tights. Also, bow-neck blouses will be worn with dressy plaid or tweed slacks with glossy leather belts. As far as makeup goes, some makeup can be ‘recycled’ from the summer and used in the fall. Makeup looks will transition from being a warm bronzy look of the summer to a warm natural look in the fall. Basically, some of the trends from the Spring/Summer of this year will remain popular in the fall season.
The trends forecasted for the fall of this year are earth tones. Now, just because certain colors are forecasted, it doesn’t mean that you have to wear them. We encourage women to continue doing what they have started doing lately, and that’s being themselves. Women are starting to do and wear what makes them comfortable. Continue to do that. If you like to do the popular things, then follow the trends. Here we go…… Trends forecasted for fall 2008 are as follows:
Earth tone eye shadows such as brown, green, gray (not bright shades, but natural shades of these colors).
Your lips should be kept very natural with shades of brown, pink, pinky-browns, and peach.
Our advice for blush - Use it!!!! During the fall, most people are coming back to their natural skin tone, so the bronzed look of summer no longer applies. You will need some color in the skin to bring balance to your makeup look.
When using blush, use natural tones for your specific skin type.
