Beauty trendspotting: TIFF and NYFW

Post image for Beauty trendspotting: TIFF and NYFW

As if it’s not enough of a lifestyle adjustment when the calendar flips from August to September (don’t tell me people ever outgrow that “back to school” feeling)—we’ve got TIFF and New York Fashion Week (technical name: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) to contend with as well! (TIFF, of course, is short for Toronto International Film Festival, which continues until the 19th. And if you’re in need of hair help for a festival soiree, may I send you to this post for tips from worldSALON’s Brian Phillips?)

While TIFF is all about celeb spotting, Fashion Week is a bit more exciting, at least from a beauty point of view, because we get a sneak peek at what hairstyle, nail polish colour and eye shadow we’ll all be wearing six months from now. So for the next few days, I’ll be posting some of my favourite Fashion Week looks. DO try these at home. (And isn’t it great that you can wear this stuff now, as opposed to waiting until spring 2010 to wear the clothes? Another reason I love beauty.)

I’ll be keeping my eye out for TIFF beauty pics too. (I did end up making it out to a couple of shindigs, most notably the premiere of Whip It, where Drew Barrymore sported a most unusual two-toned hairdo. Stay tuned for photos! And definitely see the movie when it comes out in October—you’ll love it.)

Let’s get inspired to try some new looks this fall!
