AAAAAHHH! The Aroma of Autumn Ahead.

Have you heard the silent whispers of fall beckoning? I love fall. I love the aroma in the air, the crispness of the morning dew. SHHHHH. A tinkling of glitter just fell with a rustle of the leaves…a rustic washed leaf just made it’s way down to comfort me. Yes, “ I am coming” Autumn says.

Color abounds this time of year. As women we are all curious as to how Fashion Week will persuade us in our Hair styles, make up and nails and dress. New York, Milan and Paris are our guidelines from year to year.

As for new bags…python is in. Shiny patent leather of every color and Reptilian styles abound. Boots are everywhere so go treat yourselves to a pair or two!

My expertise lies in nails. Bright bold colors are being released everywhere. CND has a new line coming for fall called Colour and Effects. The line includes 50 rich crème colours that are beautiful and fast drying on there own. Or, add an effect. From fine opalescence and shimmers to the super BLING of Sparkles. Whatever your mood, there’s a perfect EFFECT for you.

When October appears, let’s not forget that this is the pink month. Please support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and wear PINK! OPI has beautiful shades of polish to help you with that. Pink ribbons included.

Another really hot, haute HOT new look is MINX! Beyonce’, Lady Gaga, Rhianna and all the stars are getting MINX’d. The choices are endless…gold and silver to reptilian to lace and more! Customize your outfit with a slinky set of MINX.

With makeup. I am a huge fan of “less is more”…I love a fresh face with a ‘pow’ of lips. The general rule of thumb is to either choose eyes or lips to give that center of attention. If you have beautiful eyes, play them up. Liquid eyeliners come in every color. Bring the line up at the edge of your eyelids for lift, 60’s style. If you feel your lips are the sultry part of your face, play them up with color. Simple is in so apply one of the seasons shimmery glosses. My fave is SuperStay lip color, such as Maybelline’s found everywhere. Try putting a gloss of your choice over it to change the base color. You don’t necessarily have to use the clear gloss it comes with. Your look or mood changes so should your lips.

*Remember to use lip liners (if that’s your thing) that match your lip color. Throughout the day your lipstick may fade. There’s nothing worse than an outline of your lips left standing alone that’s shades darker than the natural hue.

May the fall season find you dressed to a “T” and feeling confident! (uh-oh! Is that Indian Summer I hear at my front door?)
