There’s so much to look forward to in October (Fall foliage, seasonal spices are becoming frequent (aka spiced lattes and pumpkin bread) and cooler weather, but it also marks an incredibly important month – “Breast Cancer Awareness” month. With millions participating on a multitude of different levels, we’re all in it for one goal in mind – the fight for the cure.

Straight off the runway, there is a new trend alert : “we are heading back to 80’s!” No, not MORE neon….PHEW! Think music videos and beautiful women all dressed alike.  That’s right Robert Palmer’s ‘addicted to love‘ video put the  look on the map and now its back!  Slicked  back hair and dark lips were all the rage at the Bottega Veneta and Yves Saint Laurent shows according to Allure magazine’s Beauty Reporter!

You don’t need a makeup artist or hair stylist to achieve this look.  You do need a pigment heavy lipstick and metallic eyeshadow. Try MAKE UP FOREVER’S Rouge Artist Intense in Pearly Dark Violet and Maize Gold-2 Metal Eye Shadow. A tip to getting full hydrated looking lips is to take a warm wet towel and rub your lips to make sure all the dry skin is off. This will also irritate your lips and make them appear fuller. Lining lips will help to prevent  your lip stick color bleeding. After lining apply lipstick all over and use a brush for a more professional look. The next step is my favorite, add a tiny bit of metallic eyeshadow to the middle of your bottom lip. This makes your lips pop and glow while adding dimension. Try a warmer shade like gold or copper for a sexy earthy look and a silver or white for an icy ethereal look. Last but never least apply Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip Gloss to achieve a crazy sheen! Pucker up, because no one will be able to resist your kissable pout!

For the slicked back look my first suggestion is that you need to commit to this. If you decide to wear it for the night you must own it! This hair style is not for the shy, it’s for the daring, fashion forward crew. Wet your hair, add a serum with a lot of hold and comb back into a bun.  If you want to do a side part, which is a little more reminiscent of the 1930’s, that works too. Severe yes, but very sexy if done correctly.

Robert Palmer may be gone but his idea of beauty lives on at least for this season.
