So fashions weeks as we all know my darlings are a great for telling us what's in vogue and what's not... they also predict what the looks for the coming season will be.... I personally think they're great as leads but its always nice to add your own twist on it and not be a fashion victim!.. So here's what the guru's from New York and London fashion week predict...
Spring / Summer 2010 - pastels eyes / lilacs and violets are big.... even on nails! Bright red / orange mouths-generally matte / clean bronzed skin and lashes!.... all very fresh and springy! just like the colours of the flowers in bloom! ... so pretty..... I loo-ve it all...!
Autumn/ Winter 2010 - completely different palette to spring... this look takes us back to the 'Nineties Minimalism' (zee buzz word apparently..)... with clean, polished skin... neutral palette of colours like greys, browns, taupe, mink and sand on eyes (and sockets) and cheeks and darker foundation or nude shading under cheekbones and temples to achieve that very sculpted look..... so working a lot with highlight and shade and really contouring the face and keeping the look generally nude... there have been the ocassional deep red / maroon/ plum mouths to pay tribute to the nineties goth and grunge... and I have to say I like it! (see top picture)
Personally I love the sculpted look... especially with the deep maroon mouth.... but am not sure about the completely nude look unless one has amazing bone structure and beautiful features to carry it off.... it's lovely on zee models but on real women I think this combined with just a leetle splash of colour somewhere would be beautiful.... Winter is grey enough so we need to add some life and colour to perk ourselves up non?
... but since we are entering into Spring and Holi is just around the corner.. let's focus on colour my darlings... tomorrow I will tell you about what products are good to achieve these looks and how... stay tuned.......!
