Green and Gorgeous



Fall Winter 2012

“There are lots of rich jewel tones on the mouth for fall 2012, and I love a mulberry lip, which works nicely with a neutral eye,” recommends Christy Coleman, celebrity makeup artist and natural beauty expert at The Wall Group in Los Angeles, about the season’s trends. But don’t follow blindly; be sure you do a test run of your new look to ensure you are comfortable. “Make sure you try it out first and have a friend snap a few pics to see if you like how it photographs,” advises Coleman.
