5 Buzz-worth beauty trends for fall 09

1. Dark eyebrow: Christian Dior, Marni (above) Spring 2010 runways

With Fall 2009 runway, we actually saw more of the bleached eyebrow trend. I am not a fan..that is so not normal or beautiful in my eyes. So, I am promoting beginning the dark, bold, and somewhat furry (if you're super confident!) eyebrow trend early, this fall!

Head to my go-to website for all things beauty,, to get your tips and tool to bring your brows to life! :

2. Blackberry lips: Jason Wu fall 2009 (below) on model Chanel Iman

Celebs like Rihanna have been showing their darker side lately, wearing the new dark lip trend. The blackberry lip is the equivalent to a very dark red nail polish; not quite black, but bordering that line closely. The look that was seen on the runway at Jason Wu back in February has now found a way to become very wearable, and accessible to consumers. Opt for a less-bold, plum shade, or if you're daring, go for a rich dark berry. Either way, you'll be making a fierce statement!

3. Under eye accents: Chanel fall 2009

Something I loved about the Fall 2009 Chanel RTW show, almost as much as the amazing clothes, was the make-up. Green nails (also on trend for this fall season) and bejeweled eyelashes made a huge statement. False eyelashes have already grown in popularity, especially among celebs, so why not add a little pop with some pretty decorations? Your eyes will be the center of attention, guaranteed!

4. Bouffants and pompadours: Zac Posen fall 2009 (below)
The look at Zac Poson was "Gothic Glam", a mix between the red carpet glamourista and Helena Bonham Carter’s corpse bride. This trend showed up big time on the runways in February for the Fall 2009 RTW shoes. Multiple designers sent their models down the catwalk sporting this classic but fierce hair style, including Marc Jacobs, Moschino, Fendi and Louis Vuitton.

5. Matte Nails: Essie

One of my favorite parts of having a manicure is that glossy, luster effect that a perfectly lacquered nail polish delivers. However, I have recently found out that i can feel just as polished, without the glistening top coat. A revolution in nails; Essie just came out with their matte nail polish, which can be applied over any nail polish color to make it appear smooth and, well..matte. To my surprise, the look is extremely clean and chic. j'adore. You must try!

Available at the official Essie website , or at a retailer near you.
