Fall In Love.. Part II Fall Makeup Trends

Eye Shadow goes retro this fall with "Naked" Shades from Urban Decay.Browns and" Earth Tones" are definitely back..or go luxe with dark shades of blues and grays from Estee Lauder . Try "Blue Dahlia" part of the Pure Color collection.

For a sensuous shimmer,"go for the gold" with a bold,smokey gold eye,pair with a bronze or gold flecked brown liner .

New this fall,eyelashes take center stage ,and not just your everyday look. I'm seeing bold sweeping lashes in everything from wispy to fantasy,with a pop of color at the edge of the eye to give a "just off the runway" look. Some of the best (and reported to be easiest to apply) can be seen at Urban Decay. I'm loving the Minx lashes from them,and look forward to trying them. I will post pictures for you at a later time. I'm currently waiting for the Naked eyeshadows to come in at my local Sephora.This set is so popular that there is a waiting list,so I may need to pick up some shades separately in order to create a look that I want this fall.

I'm seeing some great stuff coming in from Maybelline New York, proof that color doesn't have to be expensive to get the job done. One compact that I love is "Give Me Gold" Color Plush Eyeshadow. the look can go from subtle to high impact depending on how you layer the colors. This is perfect for the smokey gold look we talked about earlier.The technique for applying this awesome shade can be viewed at

More to come....

Until next time~

You'll Fall In Love

It's that time of year again,fashions top leaders are offering up sneak peeks of their collections,and it's time for BellevueGrl to list some of the upcoming trends that you'll want to copy this fall.

  I'm seeing a huge return to the styles of the 50's,60's and 70's  with faux fur,fringe,and cowboy boots, being featured by Chanel,and a look to the style of "Depeche Mode" shown by Moschino. lots of black leather, along with jungle prints,and lots of gold,from everything to jackets,handbags, shoes and accessories. Think rich colors in shades of Plum,Teal,Forrest Green,Mahogany,and Brown. For further details see

 Coach is also giving a nod to clogs this fall with fierce looking heels and platforms,tassels and gold studs. And the ever popular trench coat is back with a bit of a modern twist.Designers are adding details like gold and beads along the back panel and collar for a fresh feminine look.

Fall is all about the details,rich fabrics,to add your own personal look try pairing your jeans with a fringed purse or jacket,add a pop of color to your trench by adding a brightly colored or patterned scarf,let it drape softly down the back,add a beret or a cowboy hat with your leather jacket,pull out those ankle boots,and those gold cuff bracelets and be a little wild with your jungle prints..Embrace your inner feline.  Be "purrfectly" you!

Be on the prowl,
Until next time~
