We learned about the hottest beauty trends on the cat walk. Fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand and many of the trends that are seen on the runway become the 'in' styles for modern beauty. Not only did Dave let us in on the upcoming trends, he told us stories about celebrities he's interviewed and worked with. Some were very funny! The best piece of advice he gave was to do what you love. If you love your job it won't feel like a chore. Follow your passion, money will come later!
One huge trend that's coming is red lips. Designers such as Gucci, Roksanda, Versace and Charlotte Olympia had their models wearing bold red lips. Shiseido has released a fabulous collection of red-based lipsticks aptly named Rouge Rouge. Dick Page created this 16 shade collection with the idea that all women can wear a red-based lipstick. With 16 shades, all skin tones can find a red to suit them. Dior has also released a rich, red collection: 50 Rouge Dior. With 5 colour families there truly is a red for everyone!
Another fall trend is the vampy, modern gothic look. Lots of black eyeliner, Smokey eyes and black lips took the stage with designers such as Marc Jacobs, Rodarte and Dsquared. A very dramatic and dark look is in this fall. The best advice is to pick one direction for your look. Play up your eyes while keeping lips subtle or go for natural eye makeup, minimal brows and a gothic lip. Deep, blackened red and full on black lips are very much in this fall!
Dave also had a gift for us at the end of the presentation. We all received a beautiful laptop bag and an assortment of beauty goodies. We also received a face chart that we can bring to any makeup counter at the bay to get our own custom look. So cool!
To purchase items from the collections I wrote about (and many more!) pop into your local Bay or shop online at www.thebay.com.
I had such a wonderful time and can't thank Dave and the Bay enough <3
