Did you catch all the action during Fall 2012 Fashion Week? In addition to the wonderful apparel, there were tons of exciting beauty looks. We’ve picked three hot beauty trends, right off the runway, that you can try at home, starting today. No need to wait for Fall!
1. One trend that stuck out were the touches of neon (created by NARS) we saw at the Thakoon F/W ’12 show. My favorite way to wear neon makeup is on the lips. You can keep your eyes neutral and have all the focus on your lips, and this look works great for day or night. Some colors to try that will look great on all skin tones are Bobbi Brown Neon Pink lipstick and Atomic Orange lip color, and NARS semi-matte lipstick in Heat Wave.
2. Tom Pecheux, Creative Director at Estee Lauder, launched his secret to amazing lashes at the Derek Lam F/W ’12 runway show. The new Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara features a double-ended mascara wand that produces major lashes. Using the larger wand, black mascara lifts your lashes. Follow with the smaller brush using colored mascara on the bottom lashes. The result: sumptuous eye-opening lashes! I especially love the bold black and rich plum combination. Multiple color combinations are available for pre-order now.
3. The third haute trend I noticed was a taste of chocolate. What’s more delicious than a box of chocolates? How about chocolate brown hair? Fall is the perfect time to add warmth to your hair, so it’s no wonder we saw so many models rocking dark tresses down the runway. Milan Fashion Week showcased many gorgeous shades of chocolate brown and it’s easy to get the look at home. John Frieda offers easy-to-use, at home, precision foam hair color kits in beautiful shades of brown. I personally love shade 5B Medium Chocolate Brown. Visit Amazon.com for a wide selection.
