Now that the season is changing, you may find yourself changing up your beauty products and routines along with your wardrobe. Hair and makeup trends come and go; some take off into the mainstream and others never make it farther than the runway or red carpet. I’m really curious what direction beauty will take this fall and winter because the looks seem to exist in extremes – it’s all or nothing, daring or demure. Nails are understated or wildly decorated, eye makeup is soft and natural or bright and sassy, lipcolors are nude or deep shades of red, and hair is styled to look unfinished or woven into intricate braids. With so many trends at opposite ends of the spectrum, I wondered which looks my husband, Sean, would prefer. His answers surprised me – in a good way. Some were funny, sure, but others offered an insight and perspective I hadn’t considered before.
