Beauty: Haute Harvest


Give these foxy fall trends a try.

beautyoct2014It’s a good rule of thumb to update your makeup bag at the change of each season. Throw away anything expired, and check out the latest fashion runway photos for a quick shot of inspiration.

This season, we’ve done the research for you! As New Orleans casually makes its way into cooler weather, some cool new makeup trends have emerged. Here are three looks to take with you well into winter.

Burgundy Lip Stain Dark, dramatic lips have arrived just in time for fall cocktail parties! Don’t worry — there’s no need to experiment with black lipstick. Instead, throw on a lip stain in deep mauve or burgundy. Unlike high-shine glosses and shimmery balms, lip stains are understated, so it’s easier to get away with bolder colors.

As always, when playing up one area of the face, keep it simple in other areas.

Peachy Cheeks: Pack away your pink blush, and pick up a peach palette. Warm peach and apricot cheek hues swept the fall 2014 runways, from smaller designers like Hache to fashion powerhouses like Dolce & Gabbana.

Peach works on every skin tone! Choose a sheer shade, and use your fingertips or a brush to blend the color’s edges into your foundation.

Gunmetal Eye Shadow: Update your smoky eye with a fall metallic that swept this season’s high-fashion runways. A sexy, sparkly gray that can have gold, green or blue undertones, gunmetal shadow highlights eyes of every color.
