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.

Orange Lips

Orange is the next big color and it showed up on the runways on lips in electric hues as spotted at Rag and Bone, DKNY and at Dennis Basso.

No Makeup

Many designers went so beauty basic the makeup wasn’t there.  To achieve this look you just need some moisturizer and concealer, a dab of blush and a touch of liner. I usually think of this look as the weekend brunch look and I don’t feel it is appropriate for the office but designers like Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler make a good point to return to basic beauty.

Metallic Eyes 

Glitter and shimmer is all the rage for Spring 2014.  Once reserved for the tween-set, metallics are all grown up and can be used as a primary shade on the eyes or as an accent for those less bold. Charlotte Ronson, Carmen Marc Volvo and Jenny Packham

White Nails

Simple white nails are the hottest thing for Spring; and it doesn’t matter if they are matte, shiny, or glossy.  Just think White and your nails will be on trend or ready for nail art designs that are becoming the rage at Kate Spade and Nanette Lepore.

Brown Lips

Brown is back and stronger than ever as seen at Derek Lam and Chris Benz. While the look is reminiscent of a Grunge look this lighter shade is more now and really appropriate for this fall season.

Moon Manicures

The Moon Manicure continues into spring as a major accessory. Now evolving into multiple shades and colors from humble origins on the Ruffian Runway, and Lela Rose shows.

I plan on wearing the Ruffian Moon Manicure now for fall. What trend will you be ready to wear for Spring?  Or is there a trend that you will be wearing now?
