The fall collections just keep rolling in, and I for one absolutely love it. I adore fall - it's probably my favorite season. I know some people think it's drab compared to spring and summer, but by the time fall rolls around I'm ready to let go of the brights and focus on the dark, sultry colors that are always so beautiful on the skin.
We saw a lot of menswear-inspired fashions on the runway for fall, and Prescriptives has taken it further with their Well Suited collection. Prescriptives Director of Color Artistry Jillian Veron explains the direction behind the look:
“We all love a good lip gloss, but there is something incredibly feminine about the bold statement of a lipstick…in this collection the look of a creamy nude lipstick is accentuated by a strong eye liner...create a sharp straight line or a smudgy, sexy look, but either way you will want to line the inside rim for extra drama.”She is clearly speaking from my soul. Lining the inside of that rim makes or breaks a smoky eye. And the colors in this collection will create gorgeous smoke on those peepers. Let's look at the eye palettes.
Warm skin tones will want to gravitate towards the Warm palette.
These colors include Silk, Bean, Olive, Moss, and Espresso. The espresso shade was created to line and define the eyes, while the rest can be mixed and matched to create your own unique look.
Cool skin tones should look to the Cool palette.
These plum-based shades include Shell, Velour, Pinstripe, Cassis, and Blackberry. Use the Blackberry to line the eyes, and the rest for shading.
If neither of these color schemes appeal to you, you can always go for the Neutral palette.
This one is my favorite. Champagne, Clove, Sultry, Storm shade the eyes while Jet is perfect for lining. Although Jet can always be used as the basis for a gorgeous smoky eye.
To finish up those eyes, Prescriptives has a new Longwear Kohl Liner that glides on, then sets for a long, smudge-resistant, waterproof wear. Goes from inner rim to outer lashline for a look that lasts all day. Comes in Black Kohl, Slate Kohl, Brown Kohl, Blue Kohl.
Another new product for this collection is the translucent, silky-light Well-Suited Finishing Powder helps set makeup, gives skin subtle luminosity and a smooth finish.
Wrapping up the collection are the new lipcolors: Colorscope Lipcolor glides on smoothly, feels lightweight and provides extraordinary shine, leaving lips looking glossy and feeling moist and comfortable. Available in Posh Nude, Posh Pink, Posh Honey, Posh Ginger.
