Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends

New York Fashion Week Spring 2009 kicks off next Friday, September 5th. But before we get too ahead of ourselves – let’s take a trip down memory lane, reminisce about the Fall 2008 collections, and take a look at the hot beauty trends designed to compliment the season’s coolest fashions. Enjoy!

mac+sweet+baby+jane Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
The intrigue of nothing. The fragile come-on of 70s-style innocence rendered here in the nothing-but-everything lip that works against eyes swiped by a shadow. At Carlos Miele the signature Sweet Baby Jane look created by Lipstick, Myth and Plushglass, Nice Buzz.

mac+sex+tease Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
The lips could have gone redder, but in an enigmatic, underplayed, sexy, and too coy 70s twist, the lips on show at Kai Kühne offered a pliant light-shined softness against eyes dramatically swiped by line and shadow. The palette: Show Orchid, a bright floral fuchsia, with a Tinted Lip Conditioner, Gentle Coral.

mac+nothing+without+blue Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Amidst Elie Saab’s glamour parade, an eye that was summed by M·A·C’s Gordon Espinet as evoking the glama-duo of Cher and Diane Ross. And of course, this high class disco rework would be nothing without Blue. Here it is in modern shades of Freshwater and Carbon Eye Shadow, soft smudge-able Eye Kohl in Blooz, Plush Lash Mascara in Plushblack.

mac+gold+mined Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
At Luca Luca, designer Luca Orlandi’s beautifully spare and precise designs were timeless, the right setting for a richly goldmined eyes that pitted precious metals against velvet against satin to evoke the expensive glamour mood of the 70′s. Features: Pigment, Golden Lemon, Eye Shadows, Carbon and Brun, and 7 Lash.

mac+brow+beat Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Antonio Berardi’s stridently, almost fetishistically black fashions were supported by looks that were consummately masculine-feminine. Key feature was a brow, rendered in the form of a strong, lengthened hyper-groomed arch, matched against lids that were soft of colour yet deftly defined. To get the look: Brow Shader, Auburn/Malt; Eye Shadow, Dazzlelight; Fluidline, Dipdown; 263 Small Angle Brush; Zoom Lash, Zoomblack.

mac+english+roses Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Against fuss and florals, anoraks and countryside, the look at Matthew Williamson was of a no-nonsense English Rose. Lending the fresh feel – the no-drama eyes created by Brow Set, Clear; Paint Pot, Groundwork; Pro Lash, Coal Black.

mac+bare+and+breezy Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
At Isabelle Marant the attitude was soft and easy. Models breezed down the runway, hands in pockets. And on their faces: nothing much. Given the relaxed attitude, it was just right. For the lips: Slimshine, Funshine with Lip Conditioner SPF 15.

mac+modern+armour Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Referencing the bold panache of comic book Spiderwoman and slipping them into soft, sexy modern armour there was no war paint at Sophia Kokosalaki. These modern heroines like it bare to become face-naked, all-powerful. Key elements: Lipstick, Myth, Pretty Please and Powder Blush, Pinch Me.

mac+glamour+is+back Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Fashion tribes of any DNA have long hankered after the black lip. As the fashion goth’s matte black sees the ghost, backstage at Giles there was a fabulous reworking in fabulously noir patent black. Glamorous against any colour of skin. Blend your own: Lipmix in Black with rich browny-black Copper Walnut Gloss.

mac+dark+drama Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
High Priestess of Glama-Punk, Vivienne Westood’s Fall inspires a glittering archly-glam lip. Light up your dark side. The essentials: Lipstick, Dark Side; Lip Pencil, Nightmoth. For the highlights: Glitter Reflects, Rust, and Clear Lipglass.

mac+la+la+bollywood Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
At Manish Arora the speak-with-your-eyes glamour of Bollywood and the mannered demure of Paris couture fuse in eyes smoothly and fluidly articulated with a languorously flirtatious wisp of lash. The 5 essentials: Fluidline, Blacktrack; Eye Shadows, Soot and Blanc Type. The 2 Lash. Duo Adhesive, Dark.

mac+graphic+glam Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Graphic, part geisha, Nathan Jenden’ s blushing beauties evoked reactionary femmes from every era from Restoration-style ladies of some repute to deft 80′s glam. The tools: Powder Blush, Frankly Scarlet, Set Powder, Invisible, and the must-have 168 Brush for the defined stroke.

mac+in+vino+veritas Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Girls love their bud, and nowhere is it more apparent than at Carmen Marc Valvo. Wine red shades, definitively applied are left to speak, truthfully, for themselves. The shades that say it all: Lip Pencil, Cherry for supreme definition and Lipstick, Pink Nouveau for fill.

mac+decanted Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Richard Nicolls’ exaggerated forms demanded a minimal canvas and largely there was a sense of “mummy having hidden the lipstick”. But there was still work for the sommelier. The perfect wine to decant here: Lipstick, Plumful.

mac+new+chateaux Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Against soft forms, draped silhouettes what was consistent at Donna Karan: the red wine tailored lip. Distinctly Chateaux MAC 2008, here was a lip that punctuated the runway with a robust, sexy, splendour. Lipstick Lovelorn and Lady Danger.

mac+wine+stained Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
At Rodarte where lips went a bit-of-a blot to a deep red kabuki bow, it was the eyes that held the look of bare-faced intrigue with an unexpected wine stain that find itself in creases or stroking the under eye. The shades: Eye Shadows, Post Haste, Dazzlelight.

mac+minimalism Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Against Hérve Léger micro-forms, what else but deceptively minimalist lines rendered in matted chalky tones of pink. Part mod; part art school sophisto, part boho with a pout. Key for the legions who will love this look: Layer Lipsticks, Snob and Pervette. Don’t wait for Art Basel (wear it now!)

mac+colour+wash Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
With windblown hair and blush that knows no border, Fall at Romeo Gigli pointed to the art of pushing limits, and having fun. Here Powder Blush, Fleur Power sweeps up the cheeks to under the eye to create one single wash of colour. For lips: Lip Pencil, Redd; Lipstick, Lady Danger.

mac+flora+and+fauna Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
Influenced by the flora and fauna-inspired art of the Lalannes Catherine Malandrino’s palette becomes nature based with the key eye shaded as colourfully as a turning leaf. The palette: Eye Shadow, Gorgeous Gold, Coquette and Flourishing with Fibre Rich Lash, All Black.

mac+dark+dimension Back To The Future: Fall 2008 Beauty Trends
At Monique Lhuillier eyes became “accessory”, the dynamic counterpoint to Lhuillier’s forms of sculptural simplicity. At work: the tonal capacity of colour to create a mood of dark. Eyes dappled with the triple-colour shading that deliberately put the eyes in full-focus. For shades: Eye Shadow, Beauty Marked, Deep Truth, and Trax. Define with Technakohl Liner, Auto-de-Blu and top off with Pro Longlash, Pitchblack.

Target’s newest makeup lines – JK Jemma Kidd, NP Set, and Pixi – are now available in stores and online.

jk+jemma+kidd+eye+color Target Hits The Beauty Bullseye: JK Jemma Kidd, NP Set, and Pixi Now Available!The JK Jemma Kidd line includes 95 face, eye and cheek products, as well as makeup tools, inspired by the catwalk. The color items have been designed with strong pigment to produce bold statement colors, and prices range from $14 to $39. In the September 2008 issue of Vogue, Kidd describes the line as being targeted (pun intended) to “makeup junkies. It’s for girls who want to experiment with color. I am bringing high fashion colors into makeup but making it very wearable.”

np+set+lipstick Target Hits The Beauty Bullseye: JK Jemma Kidd, NP Set, and Pixi Now Available!NP Set, Napoleon Perdis’ “masstige” collection, is comprised of 85 eye, face and lip products. Perdis says that NP Set is more fast-paced and playful than his eponymous line, which is sold at his four concept stores in California and in Sephora. NP Set products retail for $12-$30.

pixi+blush Target Hits The Beauty Bullseye: JK Jemma Kidd, NP Set, and Pixi Now Available!Pixi Cosmetics, a makeup line founded by three sisters based in the U.K., is collaborating with Target for Pixi by Petra Strand, a 101 piece collection “take on the original’s ‘skin-loving’ positioning, and infuse beneficial ingredients into sheer shades. According to a Target press release, “Pixi creates a flawless, photo-perfect finish that leaves women looking like themselves, only better.” The collection ranges from $12 to $39.

Because the price points are higher than you would find at most mass retailers, Target have added testers to the beauty shelves – to encourage customers to try before they buy.

“We understand that buying cosmetics is different than buying a top or sneakers,” said Joshua Thomas, a member of Target Corp.’s communications department. “When you buy [beauty] there is that emotional investment. We understand and appreciate that and the [new beauty displays] will reflect that.” He continued, “We want to see guests walk in the section of the store and interact with the beauty brands. It gives them a chance to touch, smell and feel the brands.”
