We’ve decided to kick off our monthly “JetSet Beauty Must-Haves” in honor of Neiman Marcus’s highly anticipated beauty extravaganza, Project Beauty. Each year, we come away with some fabulous tips, tricks and trends of the trade that we normally may have overlooked. For those just tuning in, Neiman Marcus holds Project Beauty on the tail end of fashion week sending down the runway amazing beauty products that would make any beauty blogger glow. Then to make it even more fabu – each brand has sent a resident expert to answer your questions and give you a one-on-one consultation.
As each representative made his or her way to center stage, the Neiman Marcus models strutted down the catwalk dressed in the latest trends for 2013. Time for a POP QUIZ! Can you name #kenstrends this season? I bet you can if you are a regular JetSet Fam reader! Here’s a few clues: Rocker Chic, Violet Femme, Lace Noir, Boys Town, Red: The New Neutral, and Animal Magnetism. Wrap all these up with single soled, pointed toe shoes (make sure to check out Fashion Island’s Manolo Blahnik BB Bar,) a high multifaceted necklace, scaled down “mini-me” handbags and a fierce Fall Face and BAM! We have major fashion lift off.
So how do we achieve this Fall Face you ask? Bold eyebrows (thank gawd…), thick lush lashes and a powerful red lip. The models and displays around the store have traded in flowing locks and messy buns for slicked back ponytails. And we cannot neglect the appearance of our skin. Take care of your canvas ladies, it’s the only one you will have!
And without further ado…
