The Latest In Skin Care At Nordstrom

More than 450 people gathered early morning Nov. 16 at Nordstrom Ala Moana for its popular semi-annual Beauty Trend Show, highlighting the latest and greatest beauty trends, tips and products for fall.

According to Nordstrom, the three trends for the fall/holiday season are:

Nordstrom’s three beauty trends this fall/holiday season are a bordeaux lip and smoky eyes (as seen on model Rain Rusden), as well as the graphic eye.

* The Bordeaux lip – from juicy berry stains to three-dimensional red-velvet finishes.

* Redefined smoky eyes – an edgy look with a touch of feminine aesthetics. With colors like plum, grays, blues and charcoal; mix matte and metallic shadows to create a graphic halo effect around the eyes.

* Graphic eyes – inspired by the ’60s winged cat’s eye, this trend was seen on many of the Fall runways.

To get these looks, Nordstrom regional beauty director Joelle Russo suggests the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($25), Bobbi Brown Smoky Eye Palette ($48.50, available in cool or warm tones) and Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner ($20).

Also getting a lot of attention are anti-aging beauty products that can help bring life back to your skin, as well as CC (color control) creams like Amore Pacific’s Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50, which won Elle magazine’s ‘Genius’ award and Allure‘s ‘Best of Beauty’ award for Best Top Splurges for 2013. My splurge for the day was on Dr. Lancer’s Microcurrent Power Boost Device ($250) which massages facial muscles, stimulates the deep layers of the skin and optimizes the skin’s electrical potential. Stay tuned for a review shortly. Mark your calendars for Nordstrom’s Spring/Summer 2014 Beauty Trend Show May 24.
