2010 Spring Color Pick - Green!

I was in Banana Republic over the weekend looking or some springy tops and they had nothing. Everything was grays and beiges! Huh? How is that anyway to welcome the spring season?! That got me thinking. What colors are you feeling right now? I’m jumping on the green bandwagon. Not so much the pastel green but the Green-products true greens. Here are some I’m sporting right now:


SPA RITUAL Nail Lacquer in Yes, I Can ($10 @ – grass green cream.


BLOOM Shadow Liner in Emerald Green – ($24.99 @ - metallic emerald green.


ILLAMASQUA Powder Eye Shadow in Stalk ($20 @ - matte teal green.


GUERLAIN Terracotta Fard Indien Mineral Eyeshadow in Jungle Dust ($35 @ – deep green shimmer.

If you are looking to stay within the season's color trends, the one from Guerlain is spot on Pantone's radar of their Dried Herb pick. This one here looks like dried oregano!

I'll be picking my favorite products that are on point with this seasons picks to be sure to check back. Is there any color trend that you are most into these days?

Fall Color Picks - Nude Shimmer

Fall is here and we couldn't be more excited! And with the season come some great color trends. Twice a month until December, we will be featuring two colors we are loving and the makeup products that highlight them. Here's our first installment!


Ask most men about NUDE and they think of well, besides that, one color. Women … well, we know all the variations. There’s fleshy nude, beige nude, beige-y pink nude and even metallic-y nude and the formulas can be sheer or very pigmented. I love that the color can really polish off a look if you’re going for simple and low maintenance or if you want to make one feature really stand out. Add a sprinkle of shimmer and you have one of this season’s “it” colors. And what’s great about this shade as it’s hard to go overboard. You can do all your features in different nudes and still look fab. Lips, face, eyes ... here’s our picks of Nude Shimmers for the season:



BOURJOIS Effet 3D Les Nudes in 33 Brun Poetic ($15 @ – looks darker in the tube than it actually appears in the tube
SPA RITUAL Nail Lacquer in Savant ($10 @ – has a hint of gold shimmer
SHISEIDO The Makeup Lip Gloss in G27 Rose Toffee ($20 @ - light and glossy

JOEY NEW YORK Eye Shading Powder in Soulful Eyes ($16 @ – apply up to the brow bone and then lots of mascara
CLINIQUE Touch Tint For Eyes, New Cream Formula in Natural Suede ($14.50 @ - water-resistant tint
SHU UEMURA Cream Eye Shadow in Soft Seashell White ($25 @ - sublte and sleek
VON NATUR Spruce Powder Foundation ($27.99 @ – a little on cheeks, cupid’s bow, under the eyebrows
DEBRA MACKI Lip Gloss in Sucre ($16 @ – a beige-y metallic that’s all shimmer
SEPHORA Radiant Powder In A Brush ($18 @ - translucent powder with a kick
RIMMEL Glitter Eye Shadow Pencil in Starlight ($3 @ – to highlight and add some fun
