Hola! Happy Sunday and now that NYFW for Fall 2006 is over — with just remnants of things being done, it’s time to take a look at the trends of what’s coming at you for Fall 2006. What!!!!   FALL? NOW?? Am I crazy?  To be honest, I am a touch loopy but given that the shows give you a sneak peek at what’s coming, it’s best to review while it’s still fresh.

In past seasons, it’s been neutral lips (with a few notable exceptions) and smoked out eyes playing up the drama.  Fall 2006 is quite different! It’s not the same old same old– and thank godness for that! I am so glad to see the smokey eye taking a backseat and being seen at shows like Baby Phat, Badgely Mischka and a couple others mentioned in the podcast.

What’s unique here is the consideration of great skin being the palette, sometimes it’s a flushed cheek but typically the cheeks are very sheer and very light. The lip is  more important: it’s rosier  and paired with well -defined eye and brow.   Wear lots of mascara, even false lashes with a wash of color on eyelids.

Now given that the smokey eye isn’t entirely gone– and never will be, you can tweak that look with  a different color smoked out–think green, violet, lilac, grey, camel, bronze for smokey eyes

For the DVF red  lip that was on every model, go for the red mouth. Just make sure you have a very polished face, a more neutral-yet defined– eye with lots of lashes and a very precise lined lip.
If you want a softer look in red, dab on the color with the tip of the lip stick and pat it into place with a fingertip or use a lip brush to sheer it out and then apply a bit more color of a bit of glossy to give you a less fussy, just-bitten look .

What you  need to do is find a couple of deeper pink, rose or soft red shades that work for your skintone. Visit various counters at various stores. Lines to check out include Vincent Longo, Stila, BioTherm, Shiseido, Julie Hewett (she has phenomenal reds),  NARS,  Pout  ( great glosses), MAC,  TooFaced for a range of hues that will work.  Play with these colors at the counter. Divide your mouth into quarters and apply a different color on each quarter.. take a good look and choose one. OR swatch colors in your kit and take them to the counter and see what you can do with them in terms of pencils, glosses –to make them more glossy and less matte. Think rich moisture, dewy lips– not so matte and hard.

Personally, I would recommend a shade of pencil, creamy lipcolor or gloss in medium to darker pink, rose and red– some with a glossy finish; some with sparkle, some with shimmer. Mix and match to create your own unique color blend.

As soon as I get photos of fall colors, I will insert them into the story but at this point, NO ONE has fall images to hand out.  I will be pulling some NYFW images to insert here though for reference.

While it seems too soon to be thinking about fall hues,  the colors for spring and summer 2006  will absolutely blend perfectly into fall 2006. So start looking for unique shades that you would be willing to wear for a year– and different ways of tweaking the presentation. It’s more than just common sense– it’s beauty sense!

See you at the beauty counter!
