The long hot summer days will soon be behind us.  Now is the time to plan your fall wardrobe, hair and makeup options.  It’s also time to undo some of the damage done by too many hours in the sun with a series of at least 3 professional chemical peels during the fall/winter season.  Here are a few tips – so sharpen your eyeliner-pencil!

Trend #1

Retro-Pop 60’s Sex Kitten!

Bring out your inner feline this fall by draw some attention to your eyes by winging out your eyeliner.  For inspiration check out the actress January Jones of Mad Men (left).

Tip – Opt for Jane Iredale’s Cream to Powder Liner.  To achieve a softer look, this liner will allow you to avoid a harsh look. You want to look like a nice kitty not a mean kitty!

Trend #2

Bronze it up

This fall many animal print clothing, shoes, and accessories will be in style. Compliment the look and use a bronzer to define your face by using it along the hairline and under your cheeks.  Dust a light gold shadow all over the eyelid. Next add a pop of copper on the lower eyelid followed by a dash of bronze swept in the crease.

Tip – Ensure you are protecting your skin by using a bronzer with an SPF of 20 or higher.

Trend #3

Minimal Makeup

Let your healthy skin be the main attraction on your face.  When was the last time someone complimented your skin?  Make it happen this fall!

The look here is glowing skin adorned with touches of sparkly soft pinks, grays, or taupes on the eye.

Tip –  Get regular monthly or bi-monthly facial treatments from a licensed esthetician as glowing skin will always be in style.

Trend #4

A Bold Lip

A burst of color on the lips will make a stylish statement this autumn.  Rich burgundy, bright coral, and earth-red will look fantastic paired with a simple, neutral eye.  You can wear a bold lip with the winged cat eye for maximum effect.  And don’t forget to use lip liner to frame your work and polish the look.

Tip – use a lip stain on a blank lip under your lipstick to keep color even when your lipstick fades.

It’s a good idea to see a talented makeup artist each season to keep your look fresh and in vogue.  Also, make sure you are using highly effective skincare products at home to achieve the results you are seeking.
