Fall Make-Up Trends 2010

Fall Makeup Trends 2010It’s been cool enough here in the Midwest this week for us to talk like it’s Fall.  Along with cardigans, books and other Fall goodies, we’re making some subtle adjustments to our cosmetic bag that scream, “hey, it’s Fall!”  Here’s our quick guide to small changes you can make to freshen up your style for the Fall season:

1.  Neutral nail shades.  Glamour’s August issue warned us that we’d be seeing neutral nail shades everywhere we looked, and we’re here to report that we are!  Along with Glamour, we totally recommend Essie’s Mink Muffs (a classy, sassy taupe) and OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques! (funky grey-beige creme) as the coolest neutrals of the season.

2.  Pucker up with red lips!  Whether you’re heading to a show with friends or to an office meeting, rock classic red lips to liven up your look.  The bright lips work best with simple eyes (maybe even mascara only) and only a light bronzer instead of pinker blush.  Let your lips do the talking!  Do it best with DuWop’s Private Red Lipstick which magically adjusts to be your own personal perfect red shade!

3.  Eyebrows that show.  That’s right kids… stop plucking those suckers.  This trend started showing up earlier this year, but has really established itself both on the runways and in our own back yard.  With neutral makeup and a clean look being such a big part of fall style, having eyebrows to shape your face and give your look some color is a welcome change.  Keep your brows even and in order using Blinc’s Eyebrow Mousse in the color that’s right for you!

OPI Swiss Swatches & Pictures!

Ok, so I’m a little late for swatch week (my bad), but here are swatches of the OPI Swiss Collection.  These are absolutely gorgeous and incredibly unique.  Turquoise, teal, golds, blues, reds of every shade- it’s difficult not to find something for everyone in OPI’s newest Fall collection.

The best news?  YOU CAN ORDER THEM TODAY! We’re selling pre-orders here!

Without further ado:

OPI Swiss Collection Nail Lacquer

OPI Cuckoo For This Color– absolutely stellar.  A green shimmer that’s gorgeous in the light, with a blue base that makes it almost turquoise, but more cool green.

OPI Ski Till We Drop (whose beautiful luminosity is stolen by our rainy day photo) is a smoky warm blue cream.  Dark, with cool grey and an itty bit of green undertones.  A full blue that is so different from anything anyone’s done this season.

OPI The Color to Watch is actual an opal-y lavender color that is shimmery (not actually opalescent in finish) and very chic.

OPI Yodel Me On My Cell is a brighter blue than Ski Till We Drop.  I’d almost classify it as a “bright” color.  It’s shimmery, but a clearer blue, with less musky colors and a purer base.

All in all, we can’t even tell you how excited we are.  Contact us with any questions about expected delivery, but make sure and place an order today to reserve your polish!
