Sephora’s Genius Report on Fall Beauty Trends 2008 has some interesting information about what we should expect to see this fall!
With sultry smokey eyes, ultra thick lashes, and even brick red semi-matte lipstick, the drama queen is back. Sephora’s picks are Bare Escentuals’ Rocker Eye, Givenchy’s Phenomen’eyes, and NARS Shanghai Express.
#2: Pop Art
Bright bursts of color will be found on lids, softly blended, but still vibrant. While eyeshadow is bold, lashes are kept feathery rather than super thick and lengthy and lips a matte and neutral. Try Pop Beauty’s Lid Neon, Fresh’s Firebird, and NARS Honolulu Honey.
<#3: Perfect Complexion
When is good skin NOT in style? Sephora recommends Cosmedicine’s Speedy Recovery Acne Treatment System and Philosophy’s Never Let Them See You Shine.
#4: Scent Vacations
Fragrances that take you to different places and eras take center stage. Consider Emilio Pucci’s Vivara (green floral) or Kenzo’s Vintage Edition (unisex, reminiscent of the 70s).
#5: Metallic Sheen
Nails are going to be metallic, industrial. Look for heavy metals, matte grays, textured blacks. Check out Sephora by OPI (54 sahdes).
#6: Go HD
To perfect the skin canvas, try Make Up For Ever’s HD Foundation and HD Powder.
