Look Like Royalty...

Channeling European royalty, the Revlon Fall 2012 Shanghai Collection has a bit of old world glamour and Emma Stone looking far too beautiful for her own good! As you know, we have been loving royal tones this fall including royal blue, plums, purples, and deep reds. While great colors to choose in your outfits, these colors can also look beautiful on your skin. These colors have long stood for royalty and glamour and you too can use them to become the princess of your dreams. Get Emma’s look with purple or berry tones on your lids. Or try a bold, timeless red lip. We recommend The Faces beautiful shadow quad in the color Cougar $32.

Bold Lips Are Back!

Glance over at any of your favorite magazines this fall and chances are the ladies on the covers are sporting a bold, colorful lip. The trend was seen at New York Fashion week, and women of all ages have embraced the bold lip. It is time to move on from the days of a super nude lip and switch it up with some color! We think that celebs like Taylor Swift (on the cover of the November issue of Glamour) look vibrant and striking with a colorful lip. The trick is to try to keep your lips healthy and moisturized, as the weather turns colder, then be brave and chose a daring new color! Having fun and taking chances is what it is all about.

What Models Do But Real Ladies Don't

Hey ladies! While sometimes I find myself staring at models in magazines and wondering how they can make looking good so effortless, there are some times when models do things that real people would never. On page 274 of September’s “Marie Claire” there is a gorgeous model rocking red lipstick with an outline of coral. While I love a classic red lip, this one is not a real girls red lip. While this coral liner twist makes her lips appear very sexy, it’s not long-wearing, not practical or cocktail friendly and is definitely not a trend for all of us girls at home.

Eye On the Future

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to share with you how much fun we had at The Eye on the Future event at the Westport Inn last week.  
We had a blast mixing and mingling with the hottest ladies in Westport and getting them ready to model for a great cause. The evening benefitted the Crohn’s/ Colitis Foundation of Fairfield which our good friend Randi Lehrman has worked hard to promote. Girls just want to have fun and we sure did watching the great fashion show by Snappy Gator as well as giving makeovers to the gorgeous attendees!

Bold & Blue

Hey beauties! This fall and winter the hottest colors are actually very cool. Royal blue is all over the red carpet and popping up in all of our favorite shows this fall. In the September issue of “Marie Claire” there is an ad featuring Ashley Madekwe from the hit show “Revenge” sporting true blue (pg 170). Stay on top of the trend by pairing your blues with an orangey, coral lip like in the ad. We recommend FACES beautiful’s Sheer Gloss in the colors prowl or vivid.

This keeps the look from being dated and will be sure to complement any skin tone. For a classic pairing, we also like royal blue with a grey and silver smokey eye.

Did they get it right?

Hey everyone, the September issue of “Marie Claire” has some great articles as well as inspiring ads. On page 100, there is an ad for the Leo Legacy collection from Anne Klein, which can be found at Macy’s. The add features five ladies wearing long colored dresses and contrasting colored tights. All of these ladies have a neutral eye and lip. But did they get it right? We vote yes! Because there is so much color in each of their outfits, the neutral look helps to keep them looking classy and polished. 
To recreate this great fall look choose a gloss that accentuates your natural lip color such as the FACES beautiful Nude Blush Mineral gloss.
