Fall/Winter 2012 Beauty Trends

December 21, 2012


Man-o-man has it been a while since we have put up a new post! We thought we would get back into the swing of things by starting off with some of our favorite beauty trends of the season.  Haute Obsessions Beauty Editor Tim Liu not only talks about how much he adores full brows and a burgundy lip but also provides insite on how to apply these beauty obsessed products. From the runways to red carpet to your holiday makeup kit, Tim Liu sparks our interest to try products we may have been afraid to try before.

1. The Morning After:  What is the morning after look? Take on a nude very pale lid with minmal lash liner, a neutral shadow swept across the lower lash line (for highlight), and light mascara of course. “Stila Waterproof Smudge Sticks” can be used both as a liner, or if applied with a brush, can be a cream shadow as well. Try using a white gel liner, “Napoleon Perdis China Doll Gel Liner – Alabaster‘, in the lower waterline for a more avant garde look.

2. Oxblood: This rich deep hue has been everywhere this season, whether it be fashion or beauty. Designers Christian Siriano and Gucci both showed their love for the color in their 2012 Fall/Winter Collections. “YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #12 Forbidden Burgundy” is the perfect color for any night out this season. The color speaks sexy, yet excites curiosity.

3. Luscious Lashes: “Fluttery will get you everywhere” says Napoleon Perdis. Bold lashes is a trend that’ll be in season after season. Chanel recently launched “Le Volume de Chanel Mascara” has a wand with soft yet full bristles to coat every lash yet keeping them detangled, amazing for creating a bold lash look!

4. Pantone 19-1012: Pantone’s Fall 2012 fashion color report included French Roast as one of their colors for this season. The best interpretation of this color is Napoleon Perdis’ Color Disc in “Espresso To Go“, it’s a matte brown that can be used in many different ways, great as a crease color to create contour for the eyes, but try using a small flat shadow brush and sweep the color underneath the lower lash line to add smokiness to the eyes.

5. Bold Brows: This season full brows are back in! keep them full yet trimmed! If a little help is needed, “Dior Show Brow Styler Ultra-fine Brow Pencil” is the perfect product to give you that full brow effect. The pencil is a twist-up, very thin and light in color, making it easier to draw on natural looking brows.
