This fall it seems as if there are many trends from the 1950’s that are coming back. For hair, bobs are popular, as are long straight bangs, and pixie cuts. Hair color is rich with chocolates, caramels, or reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe’s platinum layered coifed look. Makeup is equally intense. Colors are rich and Eyelash Extensions are thick.
Eenki Fake Eyelash Extensions are the rage, as are smoky eyes with shadows that make the eyes pop. Lips are glossy with rich garnets, ripe reds, and deep plums. I never thought that I would see the return of the sophisticated style of my grandmother’s day. But I have to admit that I love the look. Women had a refined style in the 1950’s. They had glamour with big waves in their bobs, deep red lips, and long red nails, and sharply defined eyes. Save the peachy colors for next summer. This fall is the season to go bold and glamorous.
The bronzers of the summer are also no longer a part of the fall trends. Women are wearing more natural colors that match their skin tone. Try matte foundations, or better yet, break out your Bare Escentuals beauty kit for that flawless look. Cat eyes are also very popular, and great for a dramatic evening look. Sophia Loren created this look. Start with a good sharp eyeliner pencil. Trace the natural line of your upper lid to the outer edge of your pupil. Then sweep the eyeliner pencil up about ¼ of an inch from your Eyelash Extensions. Take this out to the end of your lid. You will want to line your bottom lid along the bottom lash line, creating a heavier line out to the end of your lash line. Coat your lashes with dark mascara.
Hair is romantic again with lush curls, big waves, or straight hair with blunt-cut bangs. Everyone can get the look they want without having to use a ton of different hair products. I would hold on to that can of hair spray though. Metals are another hot look for fall. Try copper, gold, or silver eye colors for shadow. Highlight them with beige, white, and soft pastel colors. I have also seen more defined eyebrows. Women are starting to add smoky color to their brows this fall, and this look is very 1950’s bombshell. Don’t overemphasize the brow, as you don’t want them to overpower your face. You want to enhance your brows to fall in line with your face; you don’t want to call attention to them. Keep your look balanced, and you will ooze that 50’s sophistication. Think Lauren Bacall and Katherine Hepburn, and have fun with Eyelash Extensions.
