DEEPER, DARKER, MYSTERIOUS……..IT’S TIME!

While recently walking down the New York City streets of 7th Avenue, I realized that cosmetic options have gone bad; deeper, darker and more mysterious. After entering Sephora and browsing the stations of Macy’s I noticed that practically every makeup brand offered more, shall we say, “Queen of the Damned” inspired eye shadows, blush and lip color options.

For me personally, I would opt for one heavy makeup look certainly not both at a time (heavy eye color and heavy lip color all at once I’m talking). However, if you have the heart, tenacity and courage, life is short; go for it! Whereas us cowardly lions a la Wizard of Oz will keep this look a bit low key.

If wearing both is of interest, Bobbi Brown has set the standard (doesn’t she always) for creating a look of impact that isn’t too over the top. You want to make sure you don’t cross the line from chic to slutty-cheap.

Estee Lauder’s Violet Underground Makeup Collection makes it easy to transition from day to night makeup with even one shade serving as a blush.

NARS (one of my personal makeup fave’s) has a trio eye shadow in High Society that goes from light to medium to deeper (with all three colors complimenting one another for the ability to create a variety of looks).

If velvet makeup is not registering on your beauty radar, you can always opt for velvet inspired nail colors. Ciate’s Velvet Manicure kit includes a lacquer, tube of crushed velvet powder and a small application brush. You can choose from three shades: Berry Poncho (plum), Blue Suede (navy), and Mink Cashmere (grey).

Whatever you choose, we hope we were able to help in narrowing down an option or two when considering makeup for the fall.
