It is always a bit of a shock that when the Summer is truly heating up, I’m attending fashion, accessory and makeup previews for Fall and even for the holidays. But this is the time retailers start stocking the stores–and I’ll keep previewing as I see new things, so you can be ahead of the trends.
While you’re enjoying the genuine, bronzed look of Summer, now, FACE Stockholm plans to keep those earthy, warm tones going right into Fall.
The poster girl for this new collection is, fittingly, a Swedish pop star called “September.” According to the singer: “Wearing makeup is more than just making myself look pretty, it’s about art. It’s a way of expressing myself and creating my own fashion.”
So what’s in the collection? Before I tell you, let me say that in my opinion, FACE Stockholm has the most elegant compacts–shiny, silver, simple, and chic.
The look begins with primer (Face Stockholm has an interesting one–a clear gel in a pump bottle), and then, foundation (FACE Stockholm’s Liquid Foundation is available in more than 23 colors, and also in a matte formula). While they’re not for everyone, the singer, September, adds false eyelashes for some dramatic extra volume.
The rest of the look comes for individual pieces you can mix and match not just now, but all season long:
#9 Pearl Eye Shadow is a new way to wear a perle—softly shimmery light pewter is more subtle than silver, less metallic than glowing pearl.
“Details” Eye Dust is a party in a tiny shaker jar. This one is a light blue glitter adds that special, something extra. To the Platina or Pearl #9 eyeshadow, or wear it alone for a sparkling surprise of blue sparkle that’s glittery but not gaudy.
“Mystery” Gel Eyeliner is a deep blue that’s not quite teal, not quite turquoise, not quite deep sea blue. It’s a slightly perled version of all three mixed together. It will make a sensational, modern, blue smoky eye.
“Splendid” Blush-On is a deep blue-pink rose, with a bit of pearl to make cheeks glow. Great to revive a fading tan or help enhance a fake, new one!
“Seduction” Lipstick gives you the dramatic, trendy, deep, matte, no-holds barred sexy lip look for Fall. This one is a clear, intense red that works with nearly every skin tone. Wear it straight from the tube, over the Karin Lip Pencil, or apply it and blot for a bit less on the lips. If you’re not mad for matte. The addition of a shiny lip gloss will give you the pouty-est lips this season.
