“Fall 2006 is a time to transition back to more dependable colors,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. With that come simple and clean lines, glamour, and a flair for sophistication.
“For fall, we are forecasting a new trend of basic browns, a new twist to classic colors and an added vibrancy to makeup,” says Michelle Doan, founder and CEO of Emani Cosmetics. “Red-hued lips will make a big comeback this fall. We recommend that eyes be more subtle, but not naked. Because not everyone can wear dark red lip color comfortably, try an alternative sheer cranberry shade. Apply a clear gloss to create luscious, yet wearable lips.”
