NEW YORK, Sep 29, 2008 / FW/ — From the runway to reality, the Fall 2008 trends seen on the catwalk last February can now be yours. The soft, romantic makeup to hints of metallic highlights to bold color are going to be the rage this fall.
Collier Strong, celebrity makeup artist and consultant to L’Oréal Paris, suggests these top makeup trends to update your look for fall:
Romance is in the air this season with soft, smoky eyes and delicate, pale cheeks. Collier recommends achieving this look by using Bare Naturale Mascara in Black and Bare Naturale Eyeliner in Defining Onyx, two new products that bring attention to the eyes without overpowering the look. Add definition and a sweet kiss of color to cheekbones with a soft pink or peach powder, sweeping upwards.
Metallic makeup, especially gold, rocked the runway. To recreate the look at home, Try HIP High Intensity Metallic Shadow in Gilded, a shadow duo of rich gold and dark brown with golden flecks to add shimmer to the eyelids for a metallic effect. “Apply a soft wash of golden color for day, and then deepen the shadow and add more definition to the eyes to transition the look to night. Pair with a neutral face and finish off with a soft, glossy lip,” says Collier. Try Bare Naturale Gentle Lip Conditioner in Soft Peach.
Eyes made a bold statement on the fall runways. Choose eye makeup that is vibrant and colorful. “Bright shadows in blues and purples paired with nude, natural glossy lips achieve a bold and powerful look that’s right on trend,” says Collier. Choose a shadow that’s richer and more vibrant than your normal shade to easily select a bold shade that would work on you.
Take It Off
Even the most beautiful makeup must come off. Try L’Oréal Paris’ new Skin Genesis Gel Cleanser or Towelettes. These new cleansers are designed for easy makeup removal, including no eye irritation, without drying skin.
