FALL/WINTER 2009 BEAUTY TRENDS
Fall and Winter are by far my favourite seasons because this is the time when I can see a lot of full on looks from the runway and as a Make Up Artist, it gives such great inspiration, whether it's the sexy smokey eyes mostly found in the Milan shows or bright lips which were very dominant in the runways of New York, it gives me a huge playground to work and wander on. :)
2 of the Beauty Trends of Autumn and Winter are bright lips and berry stained lips. Here are my picks for the season.
1. MAC Girl About Town
2. MAC Vegas Volt
3. MAC Mattene Lipstick in Kirsch
4. INLGOT Lip Paints 64
5. Laura Mercier Lip Velvet in Cassis
6. MAC Lipliner in Magenta
7. MAC Lipliner in Currant
What's great about this look is that you can pair it up with another beauty trend which is having Lush Lashes and Voila! Make Up In Balance.... Light Eyes and Bold Lips.
The Key to having Lush Lashes without going for falsies is to make sure that you curl them. I recommend the Shu Uemura Lash Curler and go for a Volumunising Formula for the Mascara. Separate the Lashes with a Lash comb and reapply with a Lengthening Formula.
The Mascara that I am wearing on all the photos in this post are from Rimmel and its called Glam Eyes. Again, this is a steal for, I believe less that AED 70. It provides volume and lift to the lashes. Another mascara that I recommend is the Colossal Volume Express from Maybelline.
So, prettify your eyes and lips and you are ready for the season :)
