Fall Makeup Must Haves

Continuing with our Fall series, we get you makeup ready for Fall!

Check it out:

1. Urban Decay Naked Palette ($44.00)

With his new palette by Urban Decay, which has every perfect shade of neutral  under the sun, you can create everything from a smokey bronze eye, to a neutral but smoldering Kim Kardashian-esque look.  But be warned, Urban Decay products are highly coveted, so you’ll be waiting in a long line to get this palette.  But, as with all Urban Decay makeup, the wait is worth it!

2. Nars Eyeshadow in Daphne ($23.00)

What fall makeup look would be complete without a purple smokey eye?  A classic look for fall that always comes back is deep purple lids!  Go for a deep wash of this color over lids for a nice pop of color, or blend it with darker shadows to get that masterful fall eye!

3. Smashbox O-Gloss in Noir ($22.00)

If you’ve never experienced the magic of Smashbox’s O-Gloss and O-Glow (for cheeks) then you should give this product a try!  All of their “O” products are infused with vitamins and minerals as well as Goji-Berry C complex, which is a berry that transforms the clear gloss into the perfect shade pink for your skin tone!  Now, adding pomegranate seeds and ginkgo biloba, you can now get the perfect shade of plum, which is excellent for fall.

4. Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick ($19.00)

To pull off the classic red lip, you need to have a lipstick with good pigment and intense moisture.  That is what you get with Makeup Forever’s new Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick which comes in three finishes, matte, satin and pearly for a massive range of looks for Fall.   Also, if you buy their lipstick they will donate $1 for every tube purchased to the Beauty Bus foundation.  This foundation gives in-home beauty treatments to chronically and terminally ill patients and their caregivers.  You can find out more about their foundation at www.beautybus.org (Info from Sephora.com)

5. Dior Extase Mascara Set- ($30.00)

A set that pretty much speaks for itself, Dior gives you an Extase mascara,  with an amazing brush that thickens and extends your lashes, as well as a mini iconic and blackout.  If you’ve never tried these mascaras, this is the perfect set to get you started, because once you use them, you will be hooked!

6.  Smashbox- Beauty in a Box: Walk the Line- ($34.00)

Smashbox makes my list again, because first, I love them and second, they make  effortless products.  Case in point:  This Beauty in a Box (brought to us by Sephora) in Walk the Line.  It is basically a box that has everything you need to make that classic, smoldering smokey eye that gives you the wow factor at parties!  It comes with their “glides on perfectly” eyeliner in Onyx, cream liner in caviar and Jet set water proof mascara in Midnight black.  You can’t go wrong with this set!

7. Yves Saint Laurent Pure Lipstick in Fuschia Pink- ($30.00)

Why a fuchsia lipstick for fall?  Because it is a totally unexpected pop of color in a fall color range.  It will give your mouth the feeling of luxury (because it is YSL of course!) and pizazz!  Try it!

8. Sephora Palette Endless Color Blockbuster: ($48.00)

This palette makes the cut for two reasons. 1. It gives you the most bang for your buck. 2.  It is a makeup mavens dream!  Create any look you can imagine with this palette that is chock full of eye shadows, cream liners, lip-glosses and check colors coming in at 187 products!  In addition, it’s on $48.00.  This palette will take you through Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer!

Fall Fashion Curve: Fall Jackets

Fall Fashion Curve: Fall Jackets
By: Micaela Shambee

A new season is approaching, and this season happens to be my favorite!  I love Fall for three reasons: holidays, cooler weather and fashion.  I simply love fall fashion because we get to wear knee high boots, and awesome jackets (that is my uniform for fall, really!)  So it’s important to pick the right pieces for your fall wardrobe now, so you’ll be ready when the temperature starts to drop. Thus, we’ll start with picking the right jacket, which can make your outfit chic, cool, or edgy depending on the style.  Get ready to get ahead of the Fashion curve ladies!  Here are my first three picks:

Bomber Jackets

I love Bomber jackets because they give off an urban, polished feel that I love, being a city girl.  In addition, this jacket is light and looks best when fitted and cut at the waist on curvy girls.  So, if this jacket is the apple of your eye, make sure that you try styling it with chunky bracelets and scarves to instantly glam up your bomber and make it look fresh for Fall!  Look for this jacket in tan or even plaid for a nice downtown .

Leather Jacket

I love leather jackets because they add a bit of edge to your wardrobe instantly!  I predict leather jackets to be all the rage this season because fashion is moving in a more hard-edge environment.  However, if the edgy look isn’t exactly you, but you want to give it a try anyway, pair your leather jacket with feminine pieces such as lace camisoles and pearls or ruffles for a look that is edgy and soft.  The look is a complete oxymoron, but it is a great unexpected mash up for fall.

Look for this style in asymmetrical cuts!

Blazer

Though I don’t exactly consider a blazer a jacket, you’ll definitely find this topper on everyone this season!  Hailing as one of the most fresh looks from last fall (think Kim Kardashian), blazers will be back with a vengeance for 2010.  However, if you want to make it current, try a blazer with sharp shoulders or with embellishments like spikes and chains for a very new 2010 feel.   Make sure that this type of jacket is fitted, for the most classic and beautiful shape.  Also, don’t be afraid to find blazers in different colors or even patterns.  A fun blazer can instantly update any wardrobe!
