Tuesday, August 19, 2008 | Tips & How-Tos, application tips

Ksp_822_2 Fall is a season filled with passion, beauty and mystery. From the sweet and romantic to the ultra glam, it’s a time to make a statement and have fun with your look. After scouring the runways, we’ve come up with our favorite—and most wearable—beauty trends for fall 2008.

        1. Smoky Eyes

What better way to convey a sense of mystery and beauty than with a chic, smoky eye? Although it’s never really out of style, the smoky eye is a must-have this fall. The look works best with understated lips; anything too bright or shiny will compete with your eyes.


Pür Pick: Mineral Eye Defining Pencil in Smoky Graphite combined with Onyx Pressed Mineral Shadow creates the perfect smoky eye.

         2. Berry-Stained Lips

Youthful yet sophisticated, berry tints give lips a dose of vibrant colour with a hint of attitude. Shades range from mauve and blueberry to plum and burgundy. Use your finger to dab onto your lips for a matte, stained appearance, or top with gloss for full, luscious lips.  

Pür Pick: Mineral Shea Butter Lipstick in Black Amethyst. This deep, berry tint works with every skin tone and hydrates lips for extended wearability.

         3. A Natural, Matte Complexion

Ditch the heavy foundation; a fresh face is in this fall. Sheer, natural looking makeup is the perfect complement to your glamorous smoky eyes and berry stained lips. A neutral foundation paired with a pale-pink blush gives skin that smooth, radiant look.

Pür Pick: 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup. Choose a shade that matches your skin tone and top with Mineral Blush to add a touch of pink to your complexion.


         4. Romantic Waves

Round out your fall look with a head of gorgeous waves. Spritz clean, damp hair with a volumizing spray and blow-dry upside-down. Next, curl your locks with a curling iron. Finish up by loosening the curls with your fingers and applying a lightweight hairspray. The result is a modern, romantic style that’s suitable for any occasion. 

Pür Pick: Volumizing Tonic by Aveda gives hair a boost without weighing it down. Plus, it’s infused with aloe and wheat amino acids to build body and add shine.
