the pantone fashion color report

Nov 13, 2009

superstar stila intern lauren schlessinger with a fall/winter colors report:

The Pantone Fashion Color Report is the most widely recognized and used color standard in the world, especially within the fashion industry. Each season at New York Fashion Week, it surveys designers and collects feedback on the most prominent colors within all of the designers’ collections. From this, they create a report that features the top 10 colors for the season.

Although it’s already November (wow! where did the time go?!) there is still a couple of months left of this Fall/Winter season, so I thought I’d share what colors the fashion industry says is hot for this season. These colors apply not only to clothes, but to makeup as well!

American Beauty — this flattering true red is neither harsh nor over-the-top. Designed to suit all skin tones, this warm but robust hue can be blended with almost any shade.

Rapture Rose — represents all that is new and fresh about this fall’s designs. With nurturing and feminine tones, this color plays upon the vibrancy of last season’s fuchsia but is toned down a little with soft pink. This key shade transcends clothing into cosmetics and accessories.

Burnt Sienna — more a pinkish, earthy orange, reminiscent of Mediterranean terracotta roof tiles. Warm and comforting, probably the most-fall like of all the Pantone shades.

Majolica Blue — adding an exotic feel to the color group this cross between teal blue and navy complements oranges and purple hues perfectly.

Purple Heart — sitting somewhere between true purple and lilac, this refined tone is soft and sensual.

Warm Olive — a rich yellowy green, reminiscent of an olive in a martini, which, according to Pantone's Fall 2009 report “makes all other colors come alive.”

Honey Yellow — a warm and welcoming yellow with a hint of honeyed beige. A perfect partner to Burnt Sienna for a wintry feel.

Crème Brûlée — needs no explanation for those who love its namesake, the delicious French desert. Providing one of fall’s classic neutrals, this paired down mix of gray and ivory beige looks good enough to eat!

Nomad — another timeless neutral which falls between light gray and beige serves as an anchor for more robust colors

Iron — represents the “new black” of the season. Neither a true gray nor brown it falls more in the category of a cross between slate and gunmetal. This serves as a grounding color for all other tones

Check back soon for the top 10 colors for Spring 2010.

a stila-loving update from the fabulous makeup artist (and stila girl) lindsey forrest...

"The cast of Season Five SYTYCD is on tour right now, and they recently stopped in Los Angeles, home of our very own Stila Cosmetics. Jeanine Mason, winner of season five, put me to the test while in Los Angeles, and asked if I would do her makeup before she performed. Jeanine needed beautiful, long wearing makeup that would hold up through the night during all her performances on stage.

Thanks to Stila’s outstanding products, I was able to come through for Jeanine quite easily. I used lots of Black Smudge Pot and Lash Visor Mascara to ensure that Jeanine’s beautiful, sultry eyes would pop while on stage. And, believe me, they did! After the show, Jeanine came up to me with a huge smile, gave me a hug and said, “Look! My makeup stayed!”

Jeanine is the epitome of a Stila girl on and off the dance floor. She is beautiful, talented, smart, and so nice. She said that lately she has been utilizing Stila’s pink glow to brighten her fair complexion, and that she also loves Stila’s Lip Glazes.

Congrats on all of your success Jeanine!"

stila star dominick's skincare must-haves!

Nov 4, 2009

"Hi all! The holidays are almost here and it's show time. With that said there are a few products that I would like to share with you. These are definitely products that will be essential not only for me, but for you to get you through this fun, joyous and crazy hectic time of year.

Let me start with skin care...

Over the next few months my travel schedule is a go-go which makes my skin terribly dry and dull. Stila makes the most amazing product called Hydrating Primer. This is something that no one should live without. It will protect your skin with spf 15 while moisturizing with hyaluronic acid and it will help keep your skin from premature aging with dermaxyl. For you gals who wear foundation and concealer this product will also prime your skin and give you the perfect prep for a flawless complexion.

hydrating primer

I have been getting a lot of questions regarding what other skin care I have been using as well, apparently I have nice skin, so in case you want to know...

This past season at Fashion Week here in NYC I was introduced to a company called Arcona. They sponsored skin care for most of our shows. I have been REALLY obsessed with their "Eye Dew" eye cream and "Desert Mist" skin serum. You can check out those products here."

Stay tuned for more of NYC's Stila Star Dom's holiday season must-haves!
