So I have a confession to make...I am obsessed with Kim Kardashian. Not for her personal traits but more so for her amazing fashion sense and ability to set trends at the drop of a dime. She is....as so many media outlets has termed her, the ultimate "Glamazon". There's no secret that fashionistas world-wide look to Ms. Kardashian when determining what the so-called trend is as she is all by herself, a fashion overload. When I think of Kim, I instantly think of the smoky eye, fabulous eyelashes and glossy lips. That's why, it came as no surprise that Nordstrom's "Paint the Town Beautiful" event triggered Kim's three most notable cosmetic trends as the "go-to" look for this Fall.
Hundreds of Houston women came out to Nordstrom's on Saturday as early as 7:00 a.m. for the Paint the Town Beautiful event and 2010 Cosmetic Trends Fashion Show. Guest appearances from some of Hollywood's top make-up artists and jewelry designer, Alexis Bittar, was just part of the excitement that was in store for attendees Saturday morning.
Representatives from Dior, Lancome, Chanel, Estee Lauder, Juicy Couture, Narciso Rodriguez, Yves Saint Laurent, Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy, MAC, Philosophy, Smashbox, Laura Mercier, Chantecaille and Nars set-up shop and pampered women of all ages with free makeovers in order to promote their Fall 2010 cosmetic lines.
So while I received the best makeover by a Trish McEvoy rep and my fashion sensories were overloaded with thousands of cosmetic products, I narrowed down (for you of course) the cosmetic trends to follow this season.
Be bold and apply your smoky eye in green, blue and plum hues. If you choose to go bold, keep your lips neutral and natural by applying a clear or blush-toned gloss. Your lips should make a statement...so believe it or not "red lips are back in"! Strong reds, as fuschia, coral and berry were seen on runways for Fashion Week and should be the main focus of your Fall cosmetic look. Last but not least, as our featured Glamazon Kim K. eccentuates...go ultra-bold with your lashes. MAC featured its false lashes collection and they have created numerous lengths and volumes to fit each type of woman. Last but not least, pamper your nails with the kaleidoscope trend or with taupe and grey hues and you're on your way to being a Fall fashionista in no time.
