Fall is always an exciting time in fashion and beauty. You get to switch it up in the transition between seasons and try new colors which is an easy way to implement some change into your look. Fall fashion leads the way and beauty follows so here are some easy ways to integrate the trends to pay attention to for Fall- with a few product recommendations to help you get the looks.
The neutral, warm, nude face. With a focus on flawless skin, caramel, sienna, taupe, nude, beige and brown are the basis for the color palette on eyes, cheeks and lips.The overall look is muted and mostly bare.
Dick Page chose this look for Michael Kors…..
Charlotte Tilbury designed this look for Chloe….
Francoise Nars designed a unique flushed cheek for Marc Jacobs. Whether you rock the low blended look that he created or the always classic “doll cheek” flush focused on the center of the apples of the cheek- it’s a great way to showcase a fresh, youthful, pop of color. I love a bright pink cheek. I always turn to Nars Desire for powder blush and for creme I really love Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Colour in Oleander. Layer the powder over creme and you’ll have a bright flush that lasts.

There was a bevy of reds and wines on the runway for Fall 2011. Pat McGrath custom blended a blackened burgundy for Gucci. I always love a classic bright red like Mac’s Ruby Woo which was Lucia Pieroni’s choice for Giles, or Chanel’s Rouge Allure lipstick in Entertainment- which Peter Philips used on his models for Jil Sander….

I am also loving the deep jewel tone aubergines like Nars Train Bleu….
I love Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Sterling and Chanel Illusoire. You’ll see a lot of graphic lines with a shimmery silver gray wash blended through it. Chanel showed a beautiful metallic eye for Fall 2011….

Alexander Wang chose a bold brow statement for his Fall 2011 collection. So did Stephane Marais when he designed the look for Jean Paul Gaultier. You’ll want to fill yours in if they are sparse and Brow Control by Brow Diva can help keep them perfectly groomed.

Fall 2011 nail trends lean towards neutrals…my personal favorites are Glamour Purse and Case Study both from Essie’s Carry On Fall 2011 Collection.
Fall 2011 hair trends are all about natural, loose, romantic hair. Whether it’s worn up or down-the look is undone, deconstructed, casual, incidental. Even if it is retro inspired- it is not refined. If it’s a ponytail- it’s looser and more casual…. not perfect. I particularly loved the hair at Rodarte which I felt beautifully encompassed this whole mood…..
