MAY WE SUGGEST THE NUDE LIP FOR FALL.

FALL'S NUDE LIP There is no other thing as the perfect lip.It is the focus of the face and has the power to define a woman entire look. Nude, the color of flesh, pertaining to your personal coloration. This is the new color for Fall.  We've seen all sorts of color on the lip but none is more fresh , more simple and more refreshing than the lips of a woman that appears to be without color. The strong colors presented for fall are fantastic but nude is of the moment. Appear to wear nothing at all but still have gorgeous pouty , full luscious lips using  YVES SAINT LAURENT Rouge Pur Couture in "Le Nu", TOM FORD lip color in "Sable...

It was exactly a week ago that we all shouted "Happy New Year!!!". With the new year, we are prompted to celebrate, and to step outside the day-to-day activity we're always so busy with: to reflect, look back, take stock, assess how we did, and then resolve to do better going forward- and that includes even our beauty regimen. Here are some of our top beauty products and tips, to start this awesome year looking your best. MOISTURIZING. Moisturizers have been proven to treat dry skin conditions like eczema, offer some sun protection, and improve the appearance of skin all over the body.

MODERN BRIDE BEAUTY

Modern-BeautyandTheBride - Makeup by Darcy-McGrath
By Beauty Editor, Darcy McGrath Less is more when creating a subtle illusion of timeless beauty. Make Up is the cherry on top and each bride wants to look and feel individual. To achieve Val's bridal beauty glow, start with NARS New All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, which promises 16 hour paraben free coverage. NOTE: This exclusive formula has many benefits -"Gold and green pigments in a perfect 4-to 1 ratio optically manipulate how light reflects off skin's surface, evening the complexion for instant luminosity. Green pigments negate redness on contact, while gold combats dullness. Scarlet Spiderling Root Extract helps reduce the appearance of discoloration and reveals brighter, more even skin over time".

Jaslene - Shops Neiman Marcus - Photographed by TWOmuchSTYLE
We dropped in for a mini visit with Chanel's Make-Up Artist Jacy Gabriel at Chicago's Iconic Beauty Department in Neiman Marcus for a quick spring touch-up to refresh Jaslene's look for this portfolio.

He then softly defined and brightened her skin tone with the warm Blush & Bronzer Illuminating Powder from the "Collection Mediterrance".
