BEAUTY BAR: Lilac Is Back

We all love our pastels in the spring: pretty pinks, cool minty blues and soft purples make the season peppy and bright; why can’t we incorporate these beautiful colors into our wardrobes year round?  Subtle touches can help us turn our favorite colors into yearlong possibilities.  Hair and beauty are the perfect ways to wear your favorite shade without looking totally out of season. While we all love our dark, vampy lipsticks, sometimes it’s fun to throw something different into the mix.

This Fashionista totally nailed the pastel hair trend with this amazing lilac and silver combination.  It’s bright and fun, and brings a positive vibe back into the dark (and sometimes dreary) wardrobe that accompanies the fall. The subtle fading from the lilac color into the silver adds a bit of edge to this hair trend.

Since her outfit is basically all black, the contrast of a bright beauty look helps to liven it up. Even her nails go so far as to match, with a very light lilac tone. The color in her hair stands out from the crowd and pops against the all-black outfit she’s rocking. Keeping the outfit on point for the fall season with the detailed army green jacket and studded black booties, this Fashionista lets her personality shine through with bright hair and a smile to match.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: If you’re feeling daring and want to try something new and colorful, most major hair dye companies now carry a wide selection of bright and fun colors. Manic Panic sells semi-permanent hair colors in crazy bright shades. If you’re not feeling that adventurous, perhaps a fun lip shade, like these ones from NYX or a playful nail polish to bring some color back into your fall wardrobe.
