Think BOLD: Fall 2013 Beauty Trends

There’s something about fall that re-energizes our sense of style.You don’t have to completely re-vamp your wardrobe, as beauty routines are ripe for change, and it’s amazing what a big difference a little lipstick in a bold new hue can make. A change of texture for the hair can also make a fresh statement. Metallic replaces matte when it comes to eye shadow and nail polish, and summer’s beachy waves give way to sleek, chic ponytails.

Here’s a look at some new favorite trends this fall. All can be found at Beauty Brands!

Beauty Brands Offers Cool Summer Products

Summer is supposed to be easy, breezy and low-maintenance.  But the hot sun can melt your makeup and the humidity can sink your style, creating high upkeep for your looks.
Help is on the way from your local Beauty Brands salon -and-spa superstore. A treasure trove of products will help make you effortlessly beautiful and cool even during the cruelest of summers.  Here are some favorite melt-proof, wilt-proof picks for summer 2013 from the store’s team of beauty experts:

•  Body:  Want to look naturally sun-kissed?  Put on Per-fekt Body Perfection Gel/Tan Matte, featuring Smart Color Technology that allows all skin tones to use one shade.  You’ll get a flawless matte finish minus the streaks and scents that come with many other self-tanners.

• Face:  There are several ways to prevent runaway makeup when the temps start to climb:

Start with a pristine matte canvas, using philosophy matteness collection. This skin-soothing formula performs double duty as a deep daily cleanser and a weekly purifying mask.  It features glacial clay.  How cool is that?

Then, prep the face for the day with an all-in-one product like SmashBox Camera Ready CC cream – it primes, corrects imperfections, hydrates and helps makeup stay in place.  Or try water-resistant Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm SPF30, another perfecting primer that’s great for outdoor activity.

•  Eyes:  Look cool in the pool with eyeliner that stays put.  Try Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.  A marker tip applicator creates a flawless line with no skipping, smudging or pulling.

•  Hair:  What if you could create a force field between summer humidity and your hair?  Well, Sexy Hair Weather Proof Spray does just that.  It contains polymers that make a humidity resistant shield to protect blow-outs, updo’s and curls from wilting in the weather.

•  Nails:  Give yourself a long-wear, super shiny manicure that lets you have fun in the sun and is chip-free for up to two weeks.  Choose from a wide variety of colors by OPI GelColor or CND Shellac. You can get a gel manicure at the salon & spa at Beauty Brands.
