Violet Lips at the Oscars and New York Fashion Week

Violet lips have been popping up everywhere from the red carpet at the Oscars in Hollywood to the runways of New York Fashion Week for Fall 2015.

At the Oscars, Violet Lips on Naomi Watts paired perfectly with her black Armani couture dress at the 87th Academy Awards.


Naomi’s beauty look was created to be soft but have a bit of edge. L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Color in Violet Parfait was applied and is a shade likened to a bruised plum.

At Nanette Leopore, the look for fall 2015 was a posh rebel school girl.

The collection contained fun prints and pretty jewel tones, and the violet lips created with Color Sensational Rebel Bloom in Orchid Ectasy by Maybelline complimented the collection in a bold and sexy way.

So you heard it hear first, Violet is the trend in Hollywood, and New York and maybe your hometown.

Blake Lively’s smashing Chanel Couture Dress at the premier of “Mr. Turner” was evenly matched by her ethereal beauty and her pale pink lips created by L’Oréal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Rose On And On which is one of the top beauty trends at Cannes.

Zoe Saldana’s glowing skin is another beauty trend created with L’Oréal True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Classic Tan N7.  Notice the clean and simple makeup compliments healthy skin in the most natural way and I say bravo for a look that all women can customize for their own look.

Taupe is the ‘it’ eye shadow color that accompanied healthy skin at Cannes, and Julianne Moore wore it brilliantly in L’Oréal Infallible Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe. Remember Taupe shades look good on Blue eyes, Brown eyes and Green/Hazel hues.

So to recap, the top Cannes beauty trends for 2014 are: Pale Pink lips, Glowing Skin, and Taupe Eyeshadow and are just in time to wear for the summer season if you are in Cannes or your hometown.

I can’t rave enough about Mad Men’s star Jessica Pare teal blue dress Inspiration.  I also wish I could be an actress and sing “Zou Bisou Bisou to John Hamm, but that is another column.  Jessica’s nail accessory look was created with the Brooch The Subject to compliment her dress and create a classic Hollywood look worthy of a future icon.


 Julia Louis-Dreyfus shimmered in a structured silver Monique Lhullier gown and to accent her look the perfect flush of pale pink Blushing Bride was chosen to create a uniform look between fashion and beauty.

Don’t forget “lacquered nails as accessories” have ruled the runways at New York Fashion Week as seen at Ruffian and Zang Toi and the trend actually began with the Ruffian Moon Manicure.

Christina Hendricks rocked the red carpet with her signature curves and dark and edgy nails that refused to fade into her black dress designed by Christian Siriano. To achieve this look Stylenomics, a rich dark green hue, was layered with Skirting the Issue, a Wine, Burgundy, Purple mix, to get a fresh but glamorous look that popped against her emerald accessories. 



 Connie Britton ornate “Ottoman Empire” inspired peacock blue silk velvet strapless gown from designer Naeem Khan stood out against a glam take on the French tip. To get this look start with Go Overboard all over nails, then apply Lux Effects in As Gold As It Gets on the tips, fading down onto the base of the nail. 

Anna Faris

 Anna Faris shined in a Greecian Inspired Sunny Yellow Monique Lhullier gown so in this fashion case her manicure and pedicure were pared down so they wouldn’t distract from her look; Sandy Beach, a sheer and natural nude, was used for a polished look. 

These colors are so beautiful I feel like adding them all to my collection and I will begin with the Go Overboard  and As Gold As it Gets to create my own unique twist on a French Manicure.

What Emmy Red Carpet trend will you be wearing this fall?
