OUR PICKS FOR THE TOP LOOKS FOR YOU THIS SEASON
Story by Amanda Elizabeth Smith
Plaid takes a moment to look at our favourite beauty trends for Fall 2012 that will give you a fresh and gorgeous start as the season approaches.
It’s all about dressing your hair up for any occasion. At Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera, models rocked the runway with big hair and plush hair bands. At Rodarte, models displayed more of an ethereal look with little gold star barrettes placed delicately in windswept hair. Our suggestion? DIY! This is a fun and inexpensive look that you can create yourself, so have fun with it!
This season, think less about the bronzed goddess and more about the fresh-faced beauty. This trend was apparent at shows like Christian Dior, Derek Lam, and Etro, where models strutted the catwalk looking au natural. We recommend Garnier’s Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream to achieve a pristine visage. B.B. Creams are beauty’s newest sensation; they work to protect the skin while at the same time providing skin-perfecting coverage.
The “modern cat eye” is the go-to look for fall. Shows like Lavin and Giorgio Armani showed fresh-faced models with a thick swipe of winged-out liner. To get this look, a good liquid liner is a must. M.A.C’s new ‘Penulitmate’ Eye Liner is a pen-style liner that offers amazing precision, and will allow you to achieve the most purrfect cat eye imaginable.
The classic red lip is a trend that we know will never fade. At shows like Christian Siriano and Nina Ricci, models displayed beautiful, deeply hued pouts; try Revlon’s Colourburst Lipstick in Plum for an intense lip, or for more a subtle version, Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Two Ton Tomato does the trick.
