Everyone knows you don't need to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks. Well, good news is after reporting on all of the backstage beauty trends and styles of New York Fashion Week's Fall 2010 runways last spring I found several ways to take the hottest looks from runway to real way and will be talking about them for my next couple TV segments. Here's the scoop... No matter what look you're going for a they all start with a clear complexion. I always recommend using a cleanser that's effective yet affordable. Noxzema's Original Deep Clean collection is great because the formula gets down into your pores to rid impurities and moisturizes your skin. The brand also came out with an acne controlling line for adults that prevents and helps treat breakouts called Clean Blemish Control. It's secret ingredient: salicylic acid. For those of you who need something a little stronger (more frequent breakouts), they have a line called Triple Clean. Unlike some acne control products, these don't strip your skin of moisture, which is key. The scent of Noxzema alone does it for me! All products are available for under $5.
Backstage at fashion week colorful liner was in. You can make your peepers pop with Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel Cream Liners, $11. Each set comes with three shades and are packaged to compliment different eye colors. You can... wear each shade alone or together to create different looks. The best part, the liner lasts up to 24 hours, but after you apply it you have a few minutes of wiggle room until it sets in case you want to smudge it out or do it over. Audrina Patridge wore the set for green eyes to the MTV Movie Awards.
One of the biggest trends in accessories this fall is going geek chic! Whether you wear prescription glasses or not every one's sporting frames! From classic aviators to the sexy cat eye and chunky bookworm styles, frames are an absolute must-have. Check out eyecessorize.com for styles from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Zoom, Juicy Couture, Todd Rogers and more. The site also helps you chose frames for your face shape, which is super helpful!
As a fashionista and someone who practically lives online, I'm going to share a big secret – hautelook.com. Almost every designer dress and bag I have came from this site because they sell them for 50-75% off! The site is free to join and unlike others doesn't require and invite and retails different designer items every day. I got an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming sales calendar and can share it with you! Keep an eye out for Gypsy 05, C&C California, decadestwo (I'm obsessed) and Carla Mancini handbags.
Just a few tweaks to your look can help upgrade your fall style and won't break the bank. Clear skin, colorful eyes, hot frames and a few new hot items in your wardrobe and you have a new look!
