Fall is about hues. Beauty products are no exception. What are the must-have beauty products for Fall 2009? Yes, it’s the time to add the vibrant nuances of autumn colors to your range of fall beauty products. Emily Dougherty, Fashion Editor of Elle magazine recently appeared on The Today’s Show with some absolute fall beauty products must haves. The proposition from the fashion guru was “not to leave the fun makeup for the weekend or the night, but tweak it for the day.” So how do we integrate the fun and the sophistication? Let’s check out some suggestions from the pros for the 2009 fall beauty products must haves.
2009 fall beauty products must haves: Bold lipsticks
Forego the pastels and the gloss; embrace the dark, rich and matte colors for a bold and sassy look. Though the choices are endless from reds to corals; the color of the season is however red. Models were seen strutting the boldest of red in the spectrum. Take your pick: Choose from Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lip color in watermelon or the Signature Lipstick in Rose Amethyst from Estee Lauder or even better is the Clinique’s Soft Matte Lipstick in red hot.
2009 fall beauty products must haves: Eyeliners
Gone is the thin line above the lashes, the new make up trend for fall 2009 is to apply eyeliner all around for a dramatic and bold statement. Pencil, liquid or wax; choose the one that works best for you
2009 fall beauty products must haves: Dark Nail polish
Dark nail polish made it to the fashion scene sometime back and they are still in. The color of the season is navy blue, more on the lines of sapphire blue. Choose from products like Sally Henson Blazing Blue, OPI Russian Navy or Zoya Indigo for a complete chic look. Don’t forget the top coat since dark colors chip faster.
2009 fall beauty products must haves: Nude Lip Gloss
I’m a huge personal fan of these nude lip glosses. Looks great any time of the day! Choose from beauty products from CoverGirl Wet Slicks in Amazing peach, Estee Lauder Pure Lip color in quartz or Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect in beige velvet. Perfect for a fall day! For the amazing, nude color; apply concealer prior to the lip gloss. That takes the pink away and gives the lips a lustrous, pale look.
2009 fall beauty products must haves: Black Headbands
I love this new fall fashion trend. Not only it works perfect with my short, straight hair; it’s such a low maintenance style. A black, thin headband is a must have beauty accessory for fall. You can get a satin headband from Jennifer Behr at Saks Fifth Avenue sold for $42 or a cheaper version is available from Target.
So, what are you waiting for? Head out to the nearest drugstore and update your fall makeup kit with some of these beauty products. Remember, if you look good, you feel great!
