As more and more fall beauty and fashion campaigns hit the net and my favorite magazines, I cannot get enough of the oxblood, deep dark lip! I have to have this look as I love to showcase my lips – whether summer, spring, fall or winter. On my quest to locate the perfect oxblood lip color, I have come across this AMAZING shade! It’s MAC Cosmetics’ Out All Gorgeous – a beautiful deep warm red hue that would look stunning against smooth, creamy skin and a neutral eye.
Even though it still feels like we’re in the dead of summer here in Atlanta, the fact that fall (my favorite season) is only a few days away makes me both excited and anxious. With the changing of the seasons comes a need to change ones wardrobe, home decor and most importantly beauty routine. From skincare to hair care and even makeup, the fall season brings cooler temperatures, shorter days with natural sunlight and a tendency to go darker and deeper when it comes to hair color and makeup shades.
In order to help you (my loyal readers) navigate the fall 2013 beauty trends, I figured I would make it easy and simple with a few key trends to watch for and incorporate into your routine:
Oxblood lips are THE must have lip color this Fall. In the past, the deep reds, crimsons and wine colors have all been staples for autumn but this year, the color goes deeper, darker and much more dramatic. The best way to wear this dangerous color is matte or semi-matte. Glossy dark lips can look too vampy. Pair this bold lip with a very neutral eye and barely there cheek.
As we wave goodbye to New York Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2014 -we can definitely take away quite a bit of amazing new looks and trends that will be all the rage come next year. One of the biggest trends is the use of colored liners which has been trending strongly over the past two or three years. Looks like designers are upping the ante next year with bolder use of colored liners on an otherwise bare, clean palette. Think neon and shocking shades against flawless skin and buff cheeks and lips. I am loving this Marc Jacobs beauty look from the S/S 14 NYFW show. I think its modern, edgy and totally wearable.
What do you think? Haute or not?
Smooth lips are a must no matter what season but as we head into the fall its imperative that we invest in quality lip balms to keep our lips looking kissable and tip top. That’s where the beauty industry’s must have lip brand EOS – Evolution of Smooth has debuted yet another incredible lip balm. The EOS Smooth Stick Lip Balm is 95% organic, 100% natural and paraben and petrolatum free. Rich with antioxidants such as Vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil this smooth stick banishes dry, chapped lips and preps lips for those deep, decadent lip colors we all can’t wait to wear!
