As you all know we’re big fans of Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics here at TGIFguide – especially since we got to meet him at his Hollywood location!  He’s the guru of glam, and we can’t wait to get our own glamour on and try some of Napoleon’s fabulous trends.

Fall makeup is almost in full-swing, better stock up now!

Taking inspiration from pop art to peacock feathers and tribal liner, the eyes really did have it at this year’s fall collections. Aquilano Rimondi, Anna Sui, Prabal Gurung, Donna Karan, Mugler and more, we’re feeling more experimental than usual when it comes to eye makeup.

The ever-evolving smoky eye is back and better than ever.  It’s time to experiment with shades of urban grey and classic black and throw in some strong accents of pine green, midnight blue and violet femme. Rock-‘n’-roll and grunge were huge inspirations at the fall 2012 collections. Marc Jacobs and Rag & Bone, Frankie Morello and Roberto Cavalli were some of the top trend-masters of this edgy new, but still classic,  look.

[highlight color=”grey”] The New Nude [/highlight]

The new nude makes for the perfect canvas, allowing the clothes to do (most of) the talking. Glowing, youthful skin teamed with flushed cheeks, strong brows and messy updos made for the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. Oscar de la Renta and Temperley London along with Edun and Junko Shimada kept it clean for the Fall runways.  As Napoleon says, “Not to prime is a crime.” When skin is prepped and primed, you can get away with a more minimal base, and a perfect base is essential in creating this look; keep it minimal and correct any blemishes or discoloration. You can even add in a wisp of white to brighten the eyes.

Napoleon’s Product Picks – Auto Pilot Napoleon Complex Skin Renewal Serum, Off Duty Tinted Moisturizer, Napoleon’s new ‘skinnovative’ concealer: The One, Mosaic Flushing Powder, Light Patrol Luminizing Palette, Double Agent Nude Lip Palette, Eyebrow Pencil Pale Rider
