Fall/Winter 2012 Beauty

Fall is just flying by, and in the blink of an eye we'll be in full-blown Winter. Madness. I wanted to share a few of my favorite Fall/Winter 2012 beauty trends with you all, so here they are...

Plum lips are absolutely gorgeous, especially with some lightly pinked cheeks in these chilly months. They are also a great alternative to the classic red lip.  Some great plums: Sugar Plum lip butter by Revlon and Burberry Lip Velvet in Bright Poppy. Not feeling bold enough for a super rich lipstick? Try a plum gloss instead. Glitter and Gloss recommends Indiana by Elizabeth Street Cosmetics!
Plum Lips

edited to add: Chapped lips are an absolute no-no, when rocking any sort of bold color, including these gorgeous plums. I recommend Tarte's Lip Sheers. They are ultra moisturizing, and give you a hint of color. You can get three for only $21 (including a gorgeous plum!) in this fabulous, limited edition set:

Bold Brows. Beautifully groomed, bold brows are one of Fall/Winter 2012's hottest looks, and never go out of style! To achieve this look, I love ALL products by Billion Dollar Brows! Their universal brow pencil is one of my everyday essentials! I'll have a guest tutorial on how to create the perfect brows SOON!

Bold Brows

When is a bun ever not appropriate, right? Whether a messy top knot, or a sleek low bun you really can't go wrong! A bun (low or high) is especially gorgeous when dressed up with some eye-catching hair couture!


Jewel-toned nails. I am smitten with this perfect, jewel-toned manicure by Love Maegan. Sooooooo good.

Just ordered the universal brow liner and gel! (Your posts like this are so bad for my bank account, lol!) Also I'm intrigued by the Indiana lip gloss, but wish there was a better picture of it. Do you own that color? Would you be able to post a picture?

@Lauren - thank you so much!

@Kristin - you crack me up! I love that you are such a product junkie, like me. You are going to love the Billion Dollar Brow products. Not sure where you're located, but Kelly from Elizabeth Street Cosmetics will be at my boutique THIS Saturday in Pleasanton. If you can't make it, I'll swatch Indiana and post a picture to my Instragram (@glitterglossHG)
