In a matter of weeks, fall will be arriving, and with it comes so many fabulous things to look forward to! There are lots of great fall outings and activities like going apple picking in a lovely orchard, toasting pumpkin seeds after carving your pumpkins, autumn entertaining with delicious comfort food, and last, but definitely not least, fall fashion and beauty, which always gets us excited! Time to try out new fashion trends, and we of course, absolutely love new trends in beauty and hair!
We gathered our fall fashion and beauty magazines and combed through them to find the 6 big fall beauty trends that you may want to give a whirl this coming season! We will break them down and give you our take on these trends, and if you are a bit shy about trying them for yourself, give us a call, and schedule a makeup appointment, to get tips and tricks for achieving a great fall look for yourself! Fall is a time of transition which takes us into the holiday and winter season, so sit back and let us fill you in!
We were delighted when we were asked to participate in a “Ladies Night Out” and help with blowouts for hair and makeup for a fashion show at Wilson Point in Rowayton, CT. Noreen Anderer, a long time customer of Helen Ainson gathered together 7 models and a large group of her neighbors and friends for this fun night filled with fashion, food and beauty!
We offered to do hair and makeup on any of the models who were interested in getting primped by us! We spoke with Dee about the summer makeup and beauty trends as she worked her magic on one of the models, Barbara Callahan. Top trends are bright eye shadow colors, lips and nails. Also important according to Dee is the use of contour and highlighting, which is very big right now! Fuller brows are a must and can make you look more youthful. Eyelash extensions continue to be a trend that is not going anywhere soon! Once you experience full, lush, long eyelashes you’ll be hooked! Not sure how to achieve these looks? Make an appointment with Dee for a one-on-one makeup lesson!
Here are some highlights from the Wilson Point Fashion Show for “Ladies Night Out”!
There were so many different looks on the runways for Spring 2016! Designers like Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and Tory Burch’s models glowed with that California girl feel. Other designers presented models with bright candy apple colored lips (Jason Wu), a bit of concealer and nothing else! Of course, there was the usual over-the-top hair and makeup for major drama; but not something you will see walking through your local mall! The trends we loved from the shows were ones we could see sporting ourselves! Here are the 6 beauty trends for Spring 2016 that we are loving!
VIBRANT LIPS: Bold colored lips in pink, orange and candy apple red.
THE BLUES: Shades of blues in eye shadow’s and liners from pale blue to navy were everywhere, some done very subtle and others more dramatic. The looks we liked were smoky and blended to perfection. Seen too was a bit of sparkle, perfect for a night out on the town!
BRONZE BEAUTY: At Balmain’s fashion show, models were bronzed with makeup for a fresh, bronzed glow. Want something that lasts a bit longer and doesn’t cause sun damage? Try out our Organic Spray Tan (more to come on that in our next blog!).
EASY FUSS FREE HAIR: Loose beach waves, low easy buns, single braids, ponytails and rope twists (simple to do… divide hair in two sections and twist each section clockwise while twisting both. Secure with a tie) were seen on the beauties strutting down the runway
LONG DRAMATIC LASHES AND FULL EYEBROWS: Beautiful long, dramatic lashes were seen in so many of the shows and as you know we love, love, love long lashes! Be sure to curl your lashes and wiggle your mascara wand as you apply to the lashes to get good coverage. Want fuss free lashes? Try our amazing Eyelash Extensions which will transform your peepers in a flash!
Eyebrows were bold and full (none of the over plucking of the 1980’s!). Fuller eyebrows present a more youthful appearance (a big plus!).
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day! xoxo
