Pantone Fall 2017 Color Report: Welcome to Fall 2017!

Every season, Pantone puts out a list of the 10 most popular colors seen on the runway at New York Fashion Week. You can expect to see these hues prevalent in 2017 fall fashion. Below is a guide to coordinating your Sheer Minerals shades to these gorgeous trending fall colors.

Red/Plum/Pink

fall2017-grenadine.jpg “Power Red” is the biggest trend on track for fall. Get ready to brighten your wardrobe and makeup palette with a true, powerful red. Siren Organic Crème Lipstick and Red Hot Organic Lip Gloss will be your go to lip colors for sipping on your favorite pumpkin spice beverage. For a color comparison see Pantone color Grenadine.

Also topping the trends is a color Pantone calls fall2017-tawnyport.jpgTawny Port, a deep brownish berry tone. For lips, Plum Spice and Sugar Plum Organic Lip Gloss would coordinate well with this warm, mulled wine color. If you wear a blouse in this color, a good combination for the eyes would be a contrasting Ballerina Pink Eye Shadow on the lid with a neutral warm Suede Eye Shadow on the crease.

 fall2017-balletslipper.jpg Ballet Slipper is Pantones lone pastel for the season. This delicate blush pink is identical to Sheer Minerals Ballerina Pink Eye Shadow. For a refreshing bit of spring romance in the fall, sweep your eyelids in Ballerina Pink, add a little Sweet Cheeks Blush to the apples of your cheeks and a kiss of Pink Satin Organic Lip Gloss or Princess Pearl Organic Lip Gloss on your lips. If you are wearing a pink sweater or blouse, browns and earth tones coordinate beautifully. Graphite Eye Shadow and Merlot Organic Crème Lipstick would pair nicely with this fall pastel.

Eye Candy:  SWEET Color Matching Tips for Your Eyes

Many times when choosing eye shadow colors, we choose what is appealing TO our eyes, but not necessarily ON our eyes. Finding the right colors to make your peepers POP can make all of the difference in putting your best face forward. Follow these color matching tips for eye-catching results!

If Your Eyes are BLUE…

Neutral colors set off blue eyes. Sheer Minerals shades like Sea Shell, Sand Pearl, Dazzle, Ballerina Pink, Matte Mocha and even our Coral Blush are beautiful with your baby blues for a daytime look. Blue-eyed beauties look best when wearing earthy tones, but if you want a brighter look, you can also wear rose-colored or pink shadows like Sassy Pink or our Sweet Cheeks Blush. Deeply pigmented colors like Suede and Amaretto are more dramatic and intense, offsetting lighter colors for a stunning evening eye. Blue is a cool color and warm colors are the best contrast with your eyes. In this case, opposites attract!!

If Your Eyes are GREY…

Like shades and tones actually intensify the rare grey eye. Smokey shades, like Silver Sky, Frosted Taupe and Blue Quartz, for a daytime look compliment and play up grey eyes. A smokey eye technique done in grey and blue shades such as Silver Sky and Smokey Eye are especially alluring and sultry for an evening look. If subtle colors are more your style, stay cool. Ballerina Pink or cool Serenity Blue will be the ICE-ing on the cake for grey-eyed babes.

Sheer Minerals Spotlight: Serenity Eye Shadow

Serenity…Don’t you just love the sound of it. It emotes visions of light blue clear skies, softly lapping ocean waves, a light blue cotton sundress blowing in a light breeze and all things gentle, calm, soft and soothing. It is befitting our newest shade of Sheer Minerals eye shadow. It is a lovely color on blondes, brunettes and redheads and complimentary to all skin tones as well as all ages.

Some may look at it and think of the 70’s and polyester. While it is a pretty “groovy” color, I encourage those afraid of the hippie/disco/grandma stigma, to try it. It is crisp, clean and everything summer in one shade. Plus, if you felt like feathering your hair and throwing on your white polyester bell bottoms…there’s nothing wrong with a little throwback!

One of the two Pantone Color of the Year, Serenity is a must-have for your summer eye shadow collection.

A few techniques for different looks with Serenity:

Line with it: If you are a little intimidated by sweeping the color dramatically across your lids, pair Serenity Blue with a complimentary color, such as Ballerina Pink Eye Shadow, and simply use Serenity Blue as a liner. Wet your brush for more intense color and precision.

Sheer Minerals Makeup Party

Beauty products and makeup are such a fun and personal gift to give for the holidays, why not have a glitzy, glamorous Sheer Minerals Makeover party? Much of the feedback and many posts I read indicate a level of intimidation when it comes to holding a Sheer Minerals Party. You do not need to be a makeup artist or even wear makeup to hold a successful party. If you give women the opportunity to get their hands on the makeup and experiment with it, the party virtually holds itself. Busy women often get caught in a beauty rut. We do the same look, buy the same products and stick with the same routine for years and years out of pure habit and staying in a comfort zone. Not only are you providing your guests with the time and opportunity to try new looks, products and colors on themselves, you are giving them great gift ideas for their friends and family. Below are some tips to help you conduct a successful Sheer Minerals Holiday party, regardless of your level of experience with makeup.

1.  Set up stations to avoid crowding and confusion. These should include:

*Makeup removal and facial preparation including warm washcloths, eye makeup remover, moisturizer and primer. *tip: provide a Muddy Mates Mixing & Application Tray, hand mirror (or have larger mirrors at each station) and sample brushes for each guest to keep everything sanitary and allow for mixing. Include a wish list and a pen to keep track of favorites. Encourage before and after selfies that they can share with you if they are comfortable.

*Cover up. Include all 3 concealing sticks, mineral cover-up, and sheer veils.

*Foundations and blush. Include BB crème samples or pumps and mineral foundation, blushes and setting spray.

Let's Mix It Up A Little!!!

Hello Natural Beauties!

Have you ever been reading a magazine and spotted a color of eye shadow you wish we carried? Me too! So here’s what I did…I mixed it up!

Loose minerals are so versatile!  Unlike pressed eye shadows and blushes, with loose Sheer Minerals makeup you can add a little of this to a little of that and create your own custom palette. A bronzer with foundation, an eye shadow mixed with a blush, whatever you want. One of my favorite springtime combinations is the Ballerina Pink and Gold Rush mixed together. It creates an ethereal iridescent peach. Don’t be shy about mixing minerals from different categories: veils, foundations, blushes, bronzers and eye shadows.  Sheer Minerals are all made of essentially the same ingredients.  You can even create a custom lip color by combining your Lemongrass Spa Lip Butter with any color of the Sheer Minerals Rainbow.

Don’t worry about the mess. Purchase a Minerals Mates Mixing & Application Tray and create to your heart’s content. Mineral powders blend together best when shaken, so tap or scoop a small amount into one of the reservoirs of your Minerals Mates palette, put the lid on and shake back and forth gently.  As Sheer Mineral users know, a little goes a long way, so if you are mixing up a new fabulous shade of eye shadow, a little dab will do.

Some of my favorite combinations are:
