"For a romantic look that mesmerizes, go for an ensemble with Art Nouveau elements, like intricate patterns, and a palette that's easy on the eyes. Art Nouveau is both bold and whimsical, making for a refreshing inspiration.

To channel the Art Nouveau look, opt for an attire that moves, and reinforces movement. Pick a dress that's adorned with flourishes or a floral design, which creates a...

Perfectly Adorned Face

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, March 14, 2012, In : Trend Reports 

 
The opening day of London Fashion Week may have been all about the new collections but more than the clothes, we beauty junkies also watch out for the hair and make-up trends. With the return of avant-garde, 3-D makeup on the catwalks, it is perhaps to be expected that new products that allow you to graft carefully shaped, intricately designed adornments directly onto your face in lieu of eye shadow and blush would be hitting the market. Face Lace, a new makeup concept from Phyllis Cohen, th...

Fall 2011 Top 10 Beauty Trends

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 27, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Crackle nail polish; orange eyeshadow; hair feathers. The beauty trends of spring and summer were audacious, bohemian, and sometimes, downright insane.

Luckily, for our beauty sanity, the trends for this fall are way more understated. Models on runways were rocking modern takes on classic looks with bold brows, skin-flattering lip colors, and barely there foundation. Here are 10 makeup looks from Fall 2011 Fashion Week that will help you tiptoe into the new season.

1. Handsome Beauty

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 15, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Get ready for the breeze of spring and the warmth of summer with these top beauty trends.


 
1. Electric Lips
Bright lip color is going to be huge this spring as seen on models with popped up coral, pink and red lips. Continued from winter 2010, bright colors like vibrant pinks, purples, and oranges will be defining not only fashion but also beauty for spring 2011 season as well. From matte to glossy finishes, no doubt that neon lips are must-haves this season. Find the hue which suits your s...

Top Beauty Trends at The 68th Golden Globes

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 18, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Three reasons why I love Golden Globes: 
1. It's the bumper start of awards season.
2. They mix all of our favorite stars from film and TV.
3. We get to see the latest trends.

Loud Lips

A handful of stars brightened their pearly whites with poppy pout polish. Natalie Portman and Julia Stiles both picked petal pink, while Piper Perabo swiped on a fresh red, and Jayma Mays chose an orange hue.

Retro Hair

In an ode to Old Hollywood Glamour, actresses Mila Jovovich, Megan Fox, and January Jones ...

Think Pink This October

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 11, 2010, In : Trend Reports 
Each October, hundreds, if not thousands, of products are emblazoned with pink ribbons, colored pink, or otherwise sold with a promise of a small portion of the total cost being donated to support breast cancer awareness or research. You can support the cause by, well, shopping. In my case, since there are only a few beauty companies launching breast cancer awareness products in our country (US has dozens of cosmetic giants promoting products for the cause this month like Avon, Revlon, Aveda ...

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, In : Trend Reports 
While New York and Paris are busy showing off Spring 2011's trends, let's take a look on what really matters: beauty trends that's hot now. This Ber months of 2010, try a trend or two... or maybe all! You've got until next year's Valentine's to pull these trends off.

Ombré Hair Color

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, August 26, 2010, In : Trend Reports 
Call it a case of indecision or perhaps a love affair with California surfer culture: Two-tone hair is clearly the do to rock before summer ends. Drew Barrymore has been spotted trotting around London with peroxide-dipped tips in stark contrast to her dark crown. Rachel Bilson and Leighton Meester have shown off more subtle gradations on the beachy look, and Allison Sarofim’s bleached waves added edge to her Hamptons-appropriate ensemble. Despite the trend’s obvious California references,...

Gray Nails for Fall 2010

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, August 26, 2010, In : Trend Reports 


While black is a wardrobe staple for many women, its appearance on fingertips may be a touch too moody for personal or workplace tastes. That's why this year's fall seasonal nail colors are so fantastic: the muted shades of putty, gray and greige (a mix of gray and beige) complement all skin tones and offer a slightly toned-down way to be edgy and trendy. I've never been one who's welcoming of trends in a snap, especially when it contradicts my style and personality, but I gave this trend a t...

The "Pob"

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

Victoria Beckham has seen her fair share of hair transformations over the years—including, but not limited to, her super-straight Spice Girls middle-part moment and her much lauded pixie-cut phase. But the pop star-cum-designer’s most memorable coiffing expedition would have to be the bob—which she made her own with super-sleek asymmetry in brunette and blond incarnations back in 2007, thus earning the oft-replicated style its own moniker, the “pob.” After dabbling in some extended ...

The Side Braid

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

It was the near-official style of spring, and given the way the side braid keeps showing up at events, I'm going to bet that it keeps on keepin’ on for summer, too. The latest spokesperson to rep the slung-over-the-shoulder plait is one Sessilee Lopez, who took a low-lying version of the look for a spin at the 2010 Operation Smile Annual Gala last week in New York. I'm still not sure how we feel about the casual coif turning into acceptable cocktail-hour fare, thanks to Spring runway shows ...

Gray Nails At NY Fashion Week

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

Last February 17 at Oscar de la Renta, manicurist Yuna Park applied a totally lust-worthy deep asphalt lacquer to models’ fingertips. “I couldn’t find the right shade so I had to make this one,” Park told the media, dashing any hopes we may have had about getting our hands on a bottle. But all is not lost: Park used a nearly identical grayish-blue varnish the next morning at the L’Wren Scott show. (Even Scott herself was sporting it and reportedly created this version with Lancôme...

70's Punk Hair Extensions

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 15, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

Colored hair streaks will remain popular through the Fall, and if hair colorist Eva Scrivo has anything to say about it, they’ll be adopted by even the classiest of ladies. There was no Manic Panic or Streekers to be found backstage at Cynthia Rowley last week; instead, Scrivo had come armed with mounds of crimped hair extensions in varying shades of peach, teal, navy, amethyst, and cassis. “I used the straight additives from Wella Professionals Koleston Perfect Special Mix,” Scrivo exp...

Brooke Shields' Brows at Alexander Wang

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : Trend Reports 

Nothing says “American sportswear” quite like the image of the girl-next-door models that dominated the 1970's and early eighties —Brooke Shields, more specifically whose long locks and big bushy brows defined the era. To properly simulate the Blue Lagoon star backstage at Alexander Wang 2 days ago, Redken’s Guido Palau added long extensions to models’ hair for drama, prepping them with a thickening lotion to provide a texturized, matte effect. Then he crafted thick, low-slung braid...

Colored Mascara, Anyone?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : Trend Reports 
I’ve always been slightly on the fence about colored mascaras. In theory, they strike us as an interesting way to do something a little different with your typical beauty routine; in practice, they come across more juvenile than chic. They are here to stay, though, at least for the short term, making appearances in a slew of recent color collections, from YSL to Estee Lauder, and at yesterday’s DKNY show. “Donna [Karan] wanted something youthful and fresh with a fun accent,” makeup ar...

The Statement Lip Continues To Dominate

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, September 13, 2009, In : Trend Reports 

Alright. We may only be three days into the spring shows, but we’re going to go ahead and call it: the Statement Lip is here to stay, with the season’s predictable nudes and sheer pastel glosses being replaced by the deep, opulent pouts popular for Fall. Lucia Pieroni’s handiwork backstage at Jason Wu yesterday sealed the deal. In an attempt to recreate a “Tim Burton girl with big, simple sparkling eyes and amazing lips,” Pieroni came up with three different lip shades, each more de...

Vena Cava Goes Deep For Spring

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, September 13, 2009, In : Trend Reports 

 

Backstage at the Vena Cava show, models were walking between the hair and makeup stations sporting deep violet pouts, a hue that tends to be included in the fall color palette more so than spring. “Makeup doesn’t have to be seasonal,” makeup artist Lloyd Simmonds explained of the custom color he created using four different shades of MAC Pro Lipmix in White, Burgundy, Red, and Blue. Unwilling to make the call that darker lip shades will persist into next year (”this is my first show!...

The Fishtail Braid

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, September 13, 2009, In : Trend Reports 
The fishtail braid is a style we’ve always admired from afar but have never really been able to master. So we couldn’t resist the opportunity to get a step-by-step guide from Nackie Karcher, owner and head stylist of The Parlour Brooklyn, who perfected the look at Hayden-Harnett’s presentation this week. Inspired by the designers’ “stranded in the desert” direction, Karcher spritzed Davines Defining Texturizer on models’ hair to add density and volume, and then gave each of them...
