FALL 2014 – HEAD-TO-TOE BEAUTY

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014
Rodarte 

This season, we are seeing some fun and flattering looks that any of us can incorporate into our own closets and beauty bags.  Vibrant colors such as bright green, blue, pink, and red are some of the most popular ones.  Prints, plaids, and metallics are seen everywhere — from clothing to accessories.
Makeup trends include nude lipstick, such as MAC’s Shy Girl, berry lip colors, and bright reds, and pinks. For Rodarte’s AW collection (left), NARS artist, James Kaliardos, explains, “the look is ephemeral and nostalgic creating a beautiful glow.”  Eyeshadow can be kept neutral, especially if wearing a bright or dark lip; but if you’re feeling brave, greens and blues are a hit right now and are best paired with a soft neutral lip color.  A soft brown smokey eye is always en vogue.  Makeup artist, Val Garland took a fresh take on the rock and roll look for Erdem’s AW collection (right), using, “kohl on the inside of the eye, a damp eyelid and gorgeous skin make it really fresh and a little odd.”

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Actress Emily Procter has been a frequent visitor to many of our households.  Whether she was portraying tough detective, Calleigh Duquesne, on the CBS drama, CSI:  Miami, or quirky White House attorney, Ainsley Hayes, on The West Wing, we all admired her Southern charm and natural beauty.  So how does this working-mother stay gorgeous?  We got an exclusive peek inside her makeup bag, which includes both department store and drugstore brands.

Department Store Brands:  Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder, MAC Mineralize Blush (Dainty) & Eye Kohl (Powersurge), Nars The Multiple (Maui), Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (a mixture of Sx2 and Sx4)

Drugstore Brands: JK Jemma Kidd Air Kiss Shine Lip Gloss (Undress), NP Set Eye Palette (Atlanta), Pixi Eye Bright Kit (#2), L’Oreal Paris Double-Extend Mascara (black)

Sometime next week, we’ll do a SWAG Alert with one of these products!
