Ultraviolet Eyeshadow at Behnaz Sarafpour.
Plum, aubergine, eggplant... what is it about the dusky purple shade that conjures up thoughts of fall? Well, whatever the reason, it's time to embrace it -- beauty trends for the upcoming autumn months are all about going plummy with your eyes, lips, and cheeks for a sultry yet sophisticated seasonal look. But before you raise an eyebrow at the thought of your grandmother's purple eyeshadow, you should know that these products are anything but retro-tacky! Update a smoky eye with a color-coordinated Stila eyeshadow quad in Montemarte, finished off with Urban Decay's Ink For Eyes in Empire. The contrasting color works wonders in bringing out the gold flecks in your eyes. And if you're all about the flushed cheeks, take your rosy glow up a notch on the color spectrum with Clinique blush in Plum Gorgeous. Scroll through the slideshow for my favorite plum products!
While I personally feel that fur belongs on my dog and nowhere else, I will admit it does add a certain glamour to winter get-ups. But not just any fur- long-haired fur is this season's most dramatic accessory, adding plush luxury to jackets, earmuffs, vests, and even jewelry. Throw subtlety out the window in a Ports 1961 long-haired fur capelet- don't worry, it's faux- or give your basic tee and jeans a wild edge with a faux fur vest from Express- at just $168, it's guilt-free style at its finest. But if only the real thing will do, invest in Chloe's Mongolian lamb coat, adorned with crystals and embroidery for utmost elegance, or Behnaz Sarafpour's sleek black goat hair jacket, perfect with party frocks and jeweled flats. Still unsure about this furry fashion trend? While we can't say PETA won't mind, we can say it doesn't hurt to look.
