First Glance

Think late summer glow. Tawny, dusky yet beautifully lit shades of rose, plum, and bronze with unexpected accents of turquoise. Sultry tones for eyes. For lips, a playful toss up of high wattage shimmer and luxe creamy hues. Cheeks are softly kissed by the sun then pinched with healthful, sheer washes of pink.

While we generally, wholeheartedly embrace bursts of color during the playful spring and summer months, I challenge you to give your fall routine a little shake up-wake up and introduce faint streaks of color NOW!without flash/ with flash

Here I am sporting a flash of NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Abbey Road on my upper lash line and MILANI Blue My Mind haphazardly smudged on the bottom. It’s a very subtle introduction of color….and a great way to accent your eyes without loads of color on the lid – which sometimes requires more artful blending than this busy beauty maven has time to implement.

So for a quick and easy flash of color, try this!

Fear not color this fall.

YSL’s Autumn 2009 Collection is not for the faint of heart. The current offering for fall screams drama and Hollywood glamour. Want to make a statement this fall? Look no further!

“elegant and feminine, seductive and sexy, with strong, heavily lined smoky eyes, femme-fatale purple lips and flawless skin. Mascara is layered on to create a false lash effect, while a dab of apricot blush over the cheeks gives a naturally healthy glow.”

The Colour Palette

“A mouth-watering selection of tones for the lips include lychee, raspberry and cherry. For eyes, green is the top choice for an evening look but for day there’s a softer, more wearable palette consisting of peaches, browns and bronzes.”

The Collection

  • Gloss Volupté: With the same texture as a lip-gloss but contained in a lipstick case, Gloss Volupté features innovative ingredients such as Candelilla resin, Colorshine complex and Pomegrante extract that will leave lips “smooth, plumped and moisturised”. It is available in four new shades: Iced Lychee, Chilled Raspberry, Frozen Cherry and Frosted Plum.
  • Complexion Palette: A pressed powder for the complexion housed in YSL’s signature gold mirrored compact, which features a saddle-stitched capital Y on the front. Containing radiance-boosting pigments.
  • Cream Blush: These soft cream cheek colours with a velvety texture are available in three shades: Velvety Peach, Powdery Rose and Silky Praline. Each one is housed in square glass containers with gold caps.
  • Rouge Volupté: Four new lipstick colours in this range: Frivolous Pink, Spicy Pink, Vibrant Brown and Exquisite Plum.
  • Ombres Duolumieres: This compact features two new eye shadows: Anise Green/Intense Plum and Pearly Peach/Brown Mink.
  • 5 Colour Harmony Palette: Compact containing five complementary eye colours. Available in two palettes: Bronze Gold and Midnight.
  • Luxurious Mascara: The newest mascara comes in Sublime Grey.
  • La Laque: Two new nail colour shades: Stormy Grey, a limited-edition slate grey shade and Extreme Purple, a deep red-purple.

Tailored menswear-inspired looks are showing up in many Fall fashion collections.  Prescriptives jumps on board with “Well Suited

Precriptives_Well Suited

Prescriptives Director of Color Artistry Jillian Veran explains how to achieve the sophisticated and tailored look of Well-Suited:

“We all love a good lip gloss, but there is something incredibly feminine about the bold statement of a lipstick…in this collection the look of a creamy nude lipstick is accentuated by a strong eye liner…create a sharp straight line or a smudgy, sexy look, but either way you will want to line the inside rim for extra drama.”

Available at Prescriptives.com and fine department stores
