Latest Beauty Trends

When it comes to beauty trends, every woman wants to ace them. Even if it’s not to the same degree as a super model or someone that has an entire fortune to splurge, but to some extent beauty trends are important to every woman, regardless of her background, preference or budget.

Beauty trends such as what make-up to apply during different seasons which grow and change as time goes on. How ever those like no wearing red one season, and it somehow being all the rage the next that allow the fashion and beauty industry to enjoy continued success. Hard to make a profit if we no longer buy their products.

The runway is being overrun by natural beauty inspired collections. Makeup is understated, and being used to call out the natural sparkle of the wearer. Designers are no longer calling for wild eye catching colors to call attention, but rather seeking warm and inviting looks that hold attention once found.

Both of these trends are extremely popular and extremely controversial. They can both tend to be somewhat pricey and most are not guaranteed to last forever. Some people view these trends as a waste of money; however others view it as a great decision. All of these procedures are based on what you perceive to be beautiful.

The futuristic look is back for another season, except Fall calls for adding pastel colors including pinks, lilac, and even light green into the mix. The MAC Cosmetics collection features sparkling and eye-catching eye colors such as Sea & Sky (blue/silver base), Love Connection (pink base) and Pearl (shimmering white base).

Foundation for the coming season is moving towards the natural look. More and more women are taking care of their skin and want to flaunt their flawless complexion instead of caking on foundation and concealing cream like a clown’s mask.

This Fall and Winter calls for another year of super-dark lips, so stock up on wine-colored and burgundy-tainted lip stains and heavier lipstick. The easiest way to pull of this look is to use a complementary lip liner and ‘set’ the color with a matte gloss.

Gold and bronze colored cosmetics are one of the hottest newer trends, especially in eye shadows and nail polish. The other big nail color for the season is dark plum.

Makeup trends change subtly from season-to-season. Since each season verbalizes its own rules and fashion trends, therefore its necessary to obey those fashion rules not only in terms of clothing but also in terms of make-up. We do not wear make-up as a muffle to conceal our face, but as a way to emphasize beauty and nuances of our beautiful face in a proper manner.

Eye makeup was unusually restrained for spring, but it made a serious comeback at the fall shows. At Allessandro Dell’Acqua, eyes were rimmed with sexy rock-goddess smudges; at Rochas, the lines were blurred with moody black shadows; and at Missoni and Narciso Rodriguez, the models wore thick ’80s-inspired liner on the bottom lids.

This is the latest fashion trend transformed offspring of the 80’s mullet and fullet with a dominant and forceful business touch. It’s the short female business do and is popular with very dominant women. It’s a short hairstyle that shows the world you are a female and are in control.

Hairstyle and beauty has become quite a fashion statement lately. We have seen prices for a good cut or style skyrocket with no end in sight. Some cuts are going in and out of style every day it seems. As some beauty experts say – your hair can make you or break you.

Alexandra McQueen’s models were strong on the brow, with medium brights on the lips for a look that portrays strength. Anna Sui’s models portrayed the bad girl image with smoky eyes setting the stage for seduction. Vera Wang’s models were naturally pretty, with nude makeup that always makes a come back every summer.

Frame your upper face and eyes with super-thick brows, a dramatic change from the finer, over-tweezed brows of seasons past. Thick brows can be achieved with a light dusting of brow powder and setting gel, so make sure you sculpt and tweeze only a few hairs to achieve the look.

Just like we mentioned in tip number one sometimes you can get carried away with too many distracting looks at once. Bright lips? That’s okay. Blue eyeshadow? Forgivable. Very pink cheeks? We’ll let it slide. But not all at once ladies! The key is everything in moderation!

Have you ever wondered how the lipstick you just purchased won not only the right to ride home in your car but also valuable space in your purse when it wasn’t even in your mind when you first set off on your trip to the store? Simple…GREAT Merchandising. Entire careers are made on merchandising and the best man (probably women) wins when he has his product out front and at eye level view.

Celebrity Beauty: Autumn Inspiration for Hot New Hair Shades

Gentlemen prefer blondes but this autumn the stars prefer brunette! Celebrity hair stylists are confirming what we’ve noticed already – that though blonde is always popular, brunette is the hit colour for the season. Celebrity gossip blogs have caught Hilary Duff, Kim Kardashian, Alexis Bledel and Demi Lovato stepping out with new shades of caramel, cinnamon, dark honey and chestnut with lots of subtle multi-tones that look healthy and rich.



Look to Alexis Bledel, star of cult classic show The Gilmore Girls, for a stunning example of a dark auburn. If you’ve got fair, milky skin like Alexis, the vibrant red undertones of cinnamon will bring your porcelain skin to life. This shade looks particularly great with blue or green eyes, creating a complementing contrast to make your eyes stand out.


Dark Honey

Hilary Duff is our celebrity poster girl for dark honey colour after she was seen stepping out of a Beverley Hills hair salon with this flattering new look. The former Lizzie Maguire actress has been out of the celebrity news since her marriage to Canadian hockey player Mike Comrie, but with such a beautiful shade we’re thinking she’ll be back. Always the classic Californian blonde, Hilary has gone for a warmer, multi-tonal buttery colour. The deep golden shade is great for all skin tones, warming up the complexion and giving even the fairest skin a touch of bronze. This shade is also a gentle way of going brunette if you’ve been a confirmed blonde until now.



Our favourite chestnut is Kim Kardashian. The curvy star model and reality TV star has always been a glossy brunette but her dark, almost-black shade could sometimes be a bit severe. Her new hair colour is two shades lighter, a warmer, more chocolaty shade. It’s a softer choice for Kim but is still in the same colour family of her olive skin. She’s also added discreet and subtle highlights that add depth that va-va-voom volume.



Like Kim, Disney starlet Demi Lovato was a dark, almost-black brunette. For Autumn she’s lightened up with a multi-tonal caramel that marries Kim’s chestnut and Hilary’s honey shades. The caramel highlights on a deep-brown base is very flattering on her olive skin tone and makes her eyes pop.


Tips to get that celebrity brunette shade

If you’re a confirmed blonde and are thinking of making the transition from light to dark, go gradual. You could ask your colourist to add some darker shades to your usual head of highlights. If you like the result, you could go for deeper tones and go three to four shades darker.

It’s also important to go for a multi-dimensional, tonal shading. A solid shade can look harsh particularly if you have a lighter skin tone. Ask your colourist to add tone-on-tone highlights. This also will make your hair look voluminous, natural and healthy.

Don’t forget to maintain your locks too! Brunette dye tends to fade to reddish undertones over time. Pick up a shampoo with colour pigments to keep your shade glossy and chocolaty after you leave the salon.
