Celebrate fall with this season’s must-have lip shades.  Be seen, not heard with rich reds for a sexy pout. If you’re a girly girl, then you might go for hues of feminine berries or stay cozy with warm neutrals and browns.  These shades have ruled the fall runways; why not let them rule your makeup bag!?!

It’s time for us to put away our shades of mango, peach, and pink hues in exchange for berry, red wine, and pumpkin. For those of you a little more on the conservative side, shades of grays and browns will keep you trendy this fall (Check out toenail fungus product review on thefurmanpaladin.com). Don’t be afraid to turn your day nails into a metallic party for nighttime!

We were thrilled to be a part of an exciting grand opening event for our friend’s new elegant salon, Color Vanity by Lucia.  Lucia Carna, an extremely talented makeup artist and hair stylist has turned her dreams into reality.  We were fortunate enough to have sampled one of her many beauty services, a high quality spray tan, as well as some of her customized makeup and skincare.   Stay tuned for more, as we intend to indulge in more of the state- of-the-art hair and makeup services that she provides.

From the Skinnygirl wine, the delicious brick oven pizzas,  hors d’oeuvres, and tasty sweet treats, we left with our bellies full. Lucia is a true inspiration to us. Thank you, Lucia, for allowing us to be a part of this special time and we wish you the best of luck in this new chapter of your life!
