A new season is once again coming on fast! With 2014 pushing through the summer, the fall styles have made their appearance on the runways. Wondering what the top trends are for makeup and nails? Here are the top three for eyes, lips, and nails that come straight from the runway. We’ve also picked out some handbags to match so you can be prepared with a whole look that will make you the person to watch no matter where you are. Take a look and then tell us what fall styles you are excited about!
1) Eyelashes – Every great picture needs a frame, and eyelashes are the frames of your gorgeous eyes. This season, it’s big and bold to bring back the sixties-style glamour. To get the look from the runway, line your upper lid with a black pencil eyeliner and smudge it into your waterline. Then top it off with three layers of mascara, combing lashes between each layer. If you want, falsies are also a great way to get a full lash look. Use small clusters mixed in with your real lashes. The most effective method is to apply the glue to the cluster, then wait 30 seconds before pressing them onto your lash line. Top it all off with a layer of mascara. Voila! A gorgeous frame to set your eyes apart from all the others. Pair with our bold Kate Studded Handbag and nude eyeshadow for the perfect anytime look.
2) Berry Lips – For fall 2014, the trend is stained lips. The color: berry. From Michael Kors and Isabel Marant comes the flattering-on-everyone lip style. To get the look, choose a deep wine color in a lipstick or gloss, then just tap the color lightly onto your lips with your finger. To set the color, blot it with blotting paper or in a pinch use tissues. You’ll get that delicious “just bitten” look that will emphasize your lip shape in all the right ways. Match to a new wallet with texture, like our Jamison Small Wallet.
3) Nails – Personally, I can’t help but change my nail polish every week. But there are times when a color or style comes around that makes me want to keep it forever. This season, there are three amazing styles using that same amazing berry color to match your lips. First we have a solid all-over color in a deep pomegranate. Invest an extra couple of dollars in a polish that is chip-resistant to get the most out of the effort. Second, using this same pomegranate polish and a nude color polish, you can do a beautiful berry stripe design. Hold a thin brush at the base of your nail and slowly move your finger away to get a great freehand stripe of the berry color over the nude. Third, try different cutout designs! You can use tape to block off sections of your nail at a time to get perfect lines. Now show off those gorgeous nails with a beautiful new clutch. Try the Tracey Convertible Clutch, a favorite of ours.
