Dedicated Post: Timex Style Watch Trend Report – Backstage Beauty

This dedicated post is part of my partnership with Timex. The opinions expressed below, however, are strictly my own.

When fashion threw that out along with “you can’t wear white after Labor Day,” all bets have been off when it comes to matching ANYTHING in the fashion world, and the same goes for beauty trends. Well, matching is out again when it comes to the beauty trends spotted backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Anything and everything goes when it comes to texture and style. Let’s take a look at my top three favorites:

Disheveled bedhead – ladies, texture is IN for fall, so be prepared for slept-in hair with gorgeous ornamentation and slight twists (rolled-under faux bobs a la Rodarte, loose side ponytails at Rebecca Minkoff.)

Sooty smoky eyes – the difference between these gorgeous eyes (spotted at Carlos Miele and Libertine) is that they’re actually layers of shadow that are meant to reveal gorgeous shimmering shadow underneath a layer of dark shadow above. Therefore, as your makeup wears off during the evening, it reveals a glittering undertone. It’s smart, it’s gorgeous and it’s happening.

Adult nail art manicures – One of my favorite trends of this season and next is the French manicure from Rebecca Minkoff that took three colors to create – a base coat over the nail and then two lines at the tip to create a double French effect. Just look at the effect it created! So cool!

How do you just pick ONE watch to go with all these trends? Easy: you go for something classic with just a hint of twist. A great watch to go along with the gorgeous modern gypsy feel of most of the beauty looks is something like a Timex Originals Modern Easy Reader in gorgeous Gunmetal. It’s a great neutral that works with every lovely hue shown on the fall runway but it will also give you current day chic as a great foil for all those bright colors for spring!

Ready to shake up your beauty routine?  Why wait? Give one of these fall trends a shot. You might discover a whole new you. It’s about time.
