Fashion Week Recognition!!! Take A Look

Fashion Week Beauty TipsFor Everyday Women

New York Fashion Week featured some of the most creative minds in 
fashion and beauty. Even if you weren't in the Big Apple for the runway shows, catch a glimpse of some of the spring season's hottest trends. Makeup expert and President and CEO of FACES Beautiful, Gail Sagel, helps the everyday woman make the upcoming season's trends work for her.

default-makeupRED LIPSTICK  
Whether it's a strong, orange-tinted color or a deep, cranberry hue, red lipstick made a big splash at New York Fashion Week. It's clear that this classic look hasn't gone out of style. Gail notes: "It's important to choose the right shade of red for you, and there is one for everyone! Take your time testing out your favorite shades and settle on one go-to product for the most flattering results."

Quick Tips:
  • For cool skin tones, opt for a bluish red. Warm skin tones should stick to orange or yellow-based reds. Don't be afraid to blend since sometimes, the best color is the result of a perfect mix.
  • To keep the color in place, apply lip liner around the outer rim of lips.
  • Don't overdo the rest of your makeup. Bold lips call for all of the attention.

default-makeupBOLD BROWS   
Strong, bold brows are where it's at. "There are few things that can transform a face as much as the perfect eyebrow. With this particular look, you'll need to be careful, as it can be too dramatic for everyday wear if it's not done correctly," says Gail.

Quick Tips:
  • To achieve this look, go a few shades darker than your original eyebrow color. For example, if you're blonde, don't go for a black brow. Stick with the same color family.
  • Instead of using an eyeliner pencil, use a shadow that is almost matches the shade of your eyebrow color. Create a line at the base of the eyebrow and blend upward, using an eyebrow brush.
  • Keep other makeup minimal and make brows the star of the show.
default-makeupBRIGHT EYES 
Although it was all over the runways, it can look like a paint-by-number project gone awry if you don't take the right approach. But who can resist this vibrant, fun look? Gail adds: "Choose colors that work with your skin tone. Reserve this look for night, and have fun with it!"

Quick Tips:
  • Applying dramatic colors is just like applying any other shade, but be mindful of layering and blending. Draw attention to the eye, but don't drown out the rest of your features.
  • Choose matte shadow as opposed to metallic. With an already intense look, shimmer isn't necessary.
  • Use black eyeliner and mascara to contrast the brightness of the hue. Keep other makeup to a minimum.
