Fall 2016 Beauty Roundup Part 2

Never have the eyes—and lips—had it like they did at the Paris and Milan fall 2016 shows. We were dazzled by the beautiful audacity our favorite looks displayed, ushering in what might be a new era in show-stopping beauty.


Gold Lips at Prada…The statement lip is upon us, as readily apparent at Prada as any number of our favorite designers’ runways. Pat McGrath used lipstick laced with 24K gold. Not everyone has access to the ultra-luxe tools of the best makeup artist in the business, which is why we suggest to try a gold lip yourself on a night out with Surratt Beauty’s Pristmatique Lips.

Metallic Lids at Alberta Ferretti…We’re not daring a smoky eye without a touch of metallic shimmer, right now and into fall, which is why we loved the full-on, runway-take at Feretti. A rosy cheek and natural blush lip is the perfect complement to eyes that simply shine. Try Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No.3 Plush Shadow, in any palette you choose. Shades close to your natural tones are perfect for day, while pinks, purples and beyond are begging for nighttime.

Lashes of a Different Color at Armani… Giving new meaning to the term Red Eye, Armani’s lashes were to die for. And while we expect to see a hot red color come fall, right now we’re excited to dip our lashes in the color spectrum with just a hint of what’s to come. Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara


Black Lips at Dior… Bordeaux and burgundy is the red lip color for the fall season, but what about taking it a step further for a night out? Dior’s glossy so-dark-it’s-almost-black lip says so much without its wearer having to say a word. And we can’t wait to be part of that picture.
