Forecast: Color!


My husband was a meteorologist while he was in the Navy.  So these days he’s the ‘go to guy’ when it comes to forecasting the weather.  But! when it comes to beauty forecasts, I am the one that gets excited about what’s coming.  Not him.

Now that the first of several local beauty events are now history, I can tell you that the 2016 Beauty Forecast shows Color:  And lots of it!  Even if you prefer shades of grey / soft nudes for your daily look… surprise yourself and those around you this year and add a pop of red lipstick to brighten your look.

Smashbox is always a great go-to when it comes to lipstick.  The Be Legendary line is available in matte and cream and offers some amazing color choices with staying power.  I recently purchased LA Sunset for myself and Legendary for my daughter and I must admit I got another one for every day in Cognac..

One of my favorite products from last week’s event is from Guerlain. My amazing Beauty Advisor, Meredith Meyer, showed me a beautiful Terracotta Palette from Guerlain which is perfect for contouring – which is also popular again this year.  And it is fun to use!  This is a limited edition contouring palette made up of 2 contouring shades and 2 highlighting shades that can be used for the face and eyes. (Trivia:  Did you know Guerlain launched the world’s first bronzer in 1984 and these bronzers are meant to mix and match to suit our mood?) I have several but knowing this – I may need a few more!

Also in Beauty Trends for this year is – the eyebrow.  I love a beautiful eyebrow.  It frames your face, but I must admit when I was just dabbling into makeup years ago it was one of those things I ignored on my face.  Don’t do it, girlfriends!  They can totally add to your look and they are easy to do.  Draw a clean line under your brow and repeat on the top of your brow. Fill in your brow lightly and then I usually brush through to get rid of any excess product. Use a lighter concealer to sharpen the finish and blend with your finger.  That’s it!  NARS and Anastasia Beverly Hills both offer great eyebrow pencils in a variety of colors so you can always get a perfect match.

Next week I am excited to again visit with Meredith and a National Rep for Guerlain to try more new products…

Tis the season… for color!
