Hello my darlings1 I’m taking a break from my Emmy 2011 Countdown to help all my kittens get ready for fall. I know that many of you are sending the kiddie’s back to school so let’s have a little ME time! Clients are texting hourly asking for my perspective on fall make up trends, so here you go! As your Cyber Main Gay I have to tell you I’m a little tired of “Au Natural” so please, let’s glam it up! Go into your bathrooms immediately and do a quick inventory! I know you have everything that gives you the “No Make Up Look” so don’t even consider buying another neutral. Keep that look for day and now concentrate on a little glamour for night! This season should be a breeze and add some budget relief because you only need a few elements to update your look. No complete overhaul here! Think eyes and lips! Have an open mind! Try something new! I love Gwyneth Paltrow’s philosophy on life and beauty! She proclaims “Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin, that, or a kick-ass red lipstick!” You rock Gwyneth! So let’s begin!
Step 1- Buy a red lipstick! It’s the must have color! Don’t say “I look horrid in red!” Instead say “Which shade of red complements my complexion?” Burn’t red, Cherry red, soft red, OMG there are a million! All my clients say “But it’s too bright!” Well when you’ve been wearing nude 24/7 for the last 10 years in going to definitely be a change. Come on Girls! Go for it!! I love Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge shade Hold Up Red from their 29 ST Honore fall collection!
Step 2_ Wear color on your eyes. Try the deeper hues of plum or gray. Add a surprise with sheer mint green or blue. Yes blue is back. I won’t accept any whining till you find the shade that rights for you “Miss I always wear the same thing everyday!” I love YSL’s 5 palette eyeshadow from their delicious Midnight Garden Collection! Don’t let the mint green scare you! It’s super sheer and totally luminizing!
Step 3- Get ready! Take a breath! Let your brows grow.I know I know! A brow change is difficult at best but a fuller brow is in so give it a try. I’m not saying UNABROW, I’m saying natural brow with maintenance. Let your brow girl or boy know what your experimenting with to give you the perfect look! Don’t just sit in the chair and say “The Usual please!”
My two fall skincare picks are Kate Sommerville’s 24 Hour Pimple Punisher to banish zits and Lancome’s Visionnaire with LR2412 to erase pores and wrinkles! Each can be added into your current skincare protocols!
Now, as soon as you drop off little Wyatt and Tiffany at school, stop at Starbucks then go directly to your favorite store and have some fun! Remember “No Neutrals!”
Big Kisses to all the girls I adore!
