Fashion Week has just made its way around the globe.  We're here to report the latest color trends.  In London, designers relied on "honey, coffee, toffee and chocolate hues for their make-up looks" according to Jessica Hogan of British Vogue.    No Macara

Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni wanted the models to look fresh and flushed.  Get the look with delicate pinks such as English Rose, warm Dahlia or a dusting of Magnolia.
  She also divulged the ultimate trick for truly natural makeup - no mascara!   

Here's a tip for a great winter lip treatment - apply our Honey Citrus Sugar Scrub with a dry toothbrush. Follow up with a tiny bit of balm before applying your favorite fall lip color. Stay on trend by using tones like Cocoa, Cinnamon, Dahlia, Earthtone, Peachfuzz or Redbud.
