It seems like the summer had finally started to heat up and we're already looking at Fall colors and styles. September is right around the corner whether we like it or not. So, why not keep our chins up and just look at the new fashions and makeup trends as something to look forward to?!

With that in mind, lets look at what we've been seeing on the runway for fall so far.



When you think of fall's edgy look, think kind of gothy, kind of glamour, somewhat fresh and very sexy:) OMG THATS MEEEEE!!! lol.. KIDDING!!

It seems that at more than one show the MUA's have decided that this is THE look for fall. Personally, I like it. I love the fact that with this particular trend, less is NOT more...MORE is more.



Now, granted, not all of these looks are going to be wearable off the runway, but variations of them can be kind of workable for the club scene. Not every makeup look will go with every outfit either..LOL.. so don't try to rock this next look with a pair of capri pants and a t-shirt.

See what I mean? It's a little much, but kinda hott at the same time :) If you can imagine a tamed down version of this you can probably sport it, but you're going to have to be kind of creative with how you use the blue.

Obviously we don't look at Jean Paul Gaultier's Fall look and think THIS IS SOO ME THIS FALL but it is something to admire.



Personally, I feel that the over all idea of this coming seasons fashion looks are not necessarily an example of what you should be trying to COPY. I think it's more of an inspirational spring board for you. What is the lesson? Don't be afraid of color. Don't be afraid to make a bold statement. Let the more agressive side of you out every once in a while this fall.

Don't be scurrrrddd.. LOL.. It's only makeup. And at the end of the day, it all comes out in the wash:)

Fall Line Up

Don't blink or you'll miss the rest of the summer!!!

I know we're juuuust starting to feel like summer and already we're seeing "Back to School" sales going on. The poor kids barely started their summer and already parents are ready to send them back. I for one, was disgusted to see the first back to school sale commercial and flipped the channel when it came on to spare my li'l guy.

For the rest of us however, we do have to be sure we're prepared with next seasons trends so we can be on the cusp of what's "now"....lest we get bypassed by someone who did... Never that!! LOL.

Anywhoodles, looking at the bright side of things lets look at what dropped into my inbox from the email fairies for the color of the season... Betcha can't guess... Betcha can:)



For those of you who said "Red", you get a gold star... If you said "True Red" then you get a Platinum Star!! LOL... It's not about brown reds or orange reds it's a true red that will keep you right where you need to be this Fall. Thanks to the folks at "Who, What, Where" we have this information nice and early so we can make sure our kits have at least one or two true red lipsticks ready to use:)

Moving right along to what we (or they) will be WEARING this fall... The lovely people at ShopStyle.com were kind enough to email this lovely montage:



I know it's kind of small, but what you're seeing here is plaids, prints & heavy metals. So when you're out shopping, feel free to pick up a trendy top or bottom to show that you're not COMPLETELY out of it. Artists are unique, yes, but they're not without style. Doesn't have to be the style everyone else is wearing, but let it be known that you're in the "Know".
