How’s this for an oddball trend? Ear makeup! Just like New York, London, and Milan before it, the makeup looks at Paris Fashion Week have been overwhelmingly minimal this season, but one of the first unexpected trends to emerge is makeup as jewelry.
Giorgio Armani launched his new limited edition beauty collection, Fade to Grey, on the Fall 2014 runwayicon. The products were all tested out backstage and while Armani has had a successful cosmetics line for awhile it was only recently that I started using his products. I was lured in by the gorgeous packaging.
The natural trend that started in New York and continued in London was also prevalent in Milan, but it was mainly focused on the lips. A number of designers went with elaborate eye and/or hair looks, but kept the lips matte and neutral. Here’s a look at some of the standouts!
The Body Shop always makes me nostalgic. I remember spending allowance money there growing up so I love that nearly two decades later they’re still alive and kicking! I will say their packaging could be a little swankier, but their new collection, Wild Argan Oil, smells so delicious I’m giving them a pass.
I learned a lot of things when, in the spring, I went to Japan for two weeks, like…the women have amazing skin and take their regimens very seriously and I’m not just talking about the geisha. Unfortunately even in the major department stores most people don’t speak a lick of English so discovering new products wasn’t as easy as I hoped.
Fresh has a lot of new offerings for Summer 2014. In addition to launching their cult fave Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 in a new shade, a bright fuchsia called Tulip, and coming out with a Sugar Lip Serum to target fine lines and wrinkles on and around lips, Fresh is launching UV protecting products.
Amanda Seyfried showed up to the world premiere of her new film A Million Ways to Die in the West in a butterfly-embellished Givenchy LBD. An eye-catching ensemble for sure, but I was even more taken by her flawless beauty look!
One of the most anticipated beauty collections every season is out and as always Tom Ford doesn’t disappoint. While it’s the face palette that has gotten the most attention, as someone who usually prefers a sheer veil of moisture on my lips rather than intense color, it’s his two new lip products that I’m most excited about.
