The Fall 2010 beauty trends are all over the map: from tribal-inspired hair (thanks, Alexandre Herchcovitch) to the raw elegance of nails like Cushnie and Ochs.
You can’ really go wrong if you sport loose, flowing hair that’s both slightly messy, but with an elegant edge that can go from day to nightclub, without much of a thought. Volume is the key to a lion-like mane, and even short hair can have a sexy, playful, kittenish look with a bit of root lifter or a good volumizing spray like Bumble and Bumble’s Thickening Spray.
Nail trends come into focus with deep shades of purple, burgundy, and taupe. Chanel has a beautiful new line of colors that you may want to try in their Le Vernis Trio, which was just released this month: even the gods are clamoring for Khaki Vert (a soft earthy green), Khaki Brun (a soft caramel like brown), and Khaki Rose, a very pretty, almost earthy/rosy shade. They have also re-introduced an all time favorite, Vamp. This is the color that started it all. That deep almost black purple that was the “It” shade a few years ago, and honestly never went out of style. Another hot nail look is bright neon colors (think orange, yellow, and candy pink).
The smoky eye, like Katy Perry’s bangs, will never go out of style. Speaking of purring, there is a new line from MAC that has been released called Fabulous Felines. The leopard luxe shades are back, and give a nod to the smoky eye but think of rich shades of gold and deep browns. Add a soft matte lip for a just- kissed look. We love NARS Cosmetics latest Pure Matte offerings.
Bringing eyes into focus is key, and to get the fire started there is a great new line of lashes that Urban Decay has launched. For a little runway to real life glam, try lashes applied at the edges of your eye in bright shades of blue, teal or purple, to give an unexpected pop of color just for fun.
There’s no right or wrong, experiment with your inner wild child this season. Add a great leopard print bag or scarf, a wide gold cuff bracelet, and go conquer something!
