Editor’s Letter For me, Fall is like New Year - a time when I want to change the way I look and the way I live it’s all about new beginnings.

Please share what’s on your wish list from this year’s fall collections?

I've already acquired many fall items on my wishlist! My favorites are NARS Tzarine, Edward Bess Love Affair Compact Sabrina from The Beauty Rouge, Chanel Enigma, Urban Look Book Decay's Naked Palette, and Chantecaille's Tiger Palette. At If you could create your own Fall this moment I have Chanel's Les makeup collection what colours Khakis nail polishes and Le Metier's Fall Eye Kit on my wishwould you use? list.

My ideal fall collection would consist of: * different variations of shimmery taupe eyeshadows: golden taupe, deep smokey taupe, charcoal taupe, blackened taupe-brown shimmer * soft pink blush (like Chanel Caprice US version, my holy grail pink blush - long discontinued) * nude pink lips, dusty mauve plum pink lips, and a pink caramel shade for lips

Aleksis from Alpha Blonde

If you could create your own Fall makeup collection what colours would you use? I love seeing red when the leaves start to turn so I would use all different shades of red; deep bloodred to bright orange-red, but also different shades of gray. The two would pair gorgeously together.

What are the main beauty trends What are the main beauty trends for Fall 2010 in your opinion? for Fall 2010 in your opinion? Every luxury brand seems to have a different take on fall lips or cheeks this year. I think the one common trend though is a rich smokey eye, NARS fall duos are a gorgeous mix of pale and smokey, Dior's Misty Mauve is a good smokey purple, Chanel's Enigma is a pretty combination of taupe, plum, silver, Bobbi Brown's Black Velvet eyeshadows are all smokey and dark, even MAC's Fabulous Felines collection features rich colors.

48 FALL/2010

I definitely think it's going to be very dark this fall, I have been seeing so many dark eyes and lips paired together. Please share what’s on your wish list from this year’s fall collections? I really want a shade of dark berry colored lip stain, a new red lipstick and a cobalt blue nail polish. So far no fall collections have caught my eye.

Amy from Café Makeup

If you could create your own Fall makeup collection what colours would you use? If I could create my own line, the colors would be very alive and fresh, over a perfect canvas. An excellent foundation is essential, and mine would have just a bit of a glow. Fall fashions, with their strong colors this season, can sap attention away from the face. Beautifully textured skin keeps the face in the spotlight. The eyeshadows would include a metallic version of Chanel’s Taupe Grise, a sheer cool-toned light gold, a startlingly pigmented khaki green infused with either silver or gold and a metallic camel. The neutrals include deep almonds and near-blacks, as well as some light grieges and nude highlighters. I would have blushes in several shades of pinks, peaches, and a burgundywine. It may sound over the top, but we’re dreaming here-- I’d add blushes in every imaginable shade of nude—from cool to golden. Is a dozen different nude blushes too many? I say it’s not enough. Eyeliners would include one the color of the original Chanel Vamp crème nail polish, a black infused with graphite shimmer, a black

infused with a deep khaki green/bronze/gold shimmer and a blue infused with blackened plum. For lips, several nudes are necessary to balance strong Fall eye looks. One cannot put out a line that includes only one nude—nude lips are tricky and different skintones need to be able to choose from a variety. All of my non-nude lipsticks would drip in pigment. I’d need a deep blue-red crème lipstick, and a coordinating shade in a high-shine lipgloss. Also, a neutral pink and a soft pink-peach that can be worn for those very proper tea-with-the-Queen type events. The texture of the lips is as important as the foundation—each shade would have a glow or gloss to balance out the heavier matte textures of the Fall fabrics.

ern blue eyeshadow compared to former years, and so pervasive. Red lips are back with a vengence. It’s interesting to see that there are so many nude lips too, to balance Fall’s smoky eye looks. Liquid eyeliners and massive lashes are everywhere, perhaps because of the Mad Men influence. Blushes are pinks, burgundies, plums and nudes. All that coral we saw last Spring has vanished. Fall 2010 nail polishes seem like the product of a mad scientist’s conjuring—the glass fleck, the smoked jewel-tones, the greige cremes, and the duochrome/glass fleck combinations. Nail polish formula’s have gone through such a significant change in the last twelve months. Now when I apply a polish I got a year ago, I ask myself if it looks dated.

Betsy from Autumn Masquerade

If you could create your own Fall makeup collection what colours would you use? I'd draw inspiration from nature if I were in charge of creating a makeup collection. I'd choose a lot of golds, reds, browns, and platinums, but give it a slightly gothic or cyberpunk edge, so it'd be wearable and classic but interesting. What are the main beauty trends for Fall 2010 in your opinion? Makeup trends tend to follow a cycle, but the makeup artists always try to put a new twist on them so they're not too repetitive. Kind of variations on a theme. Smokey colors always make a return in the colder months. This year however it's more of an edgy, slightly punk smokey eye or a lady like smokey eye than rock star. Even better red lips are fairly popular! Please share what’s on your wish list from this year’s fall collections? Guerlain's new Ecrin 6 palettes have caught my eye and I've already indulged in the fabulous Armani Night Viper collection. Overseas the revamped SUQQU and Lunasol's Aurora Purification collections have caught my eye.
