At the Tommy Hilfiger show this year, we saw a beautiful makeup look with fresh, simple skin, super glowy and highlighted cheekbones, a neutral eye and a slightly peachy lip. This is easily a wearable look that anyone could sport on a daily basis.
After starting off with skincare, apply your tinted moisturizer using your fingers in order for it to sink into the skin the best. Apply a bit of the "Peach Lights" Face Accent to the cheekbones for a flush of color then top off your cheekbones with the "Illumination" Eye Shadow. Make sure to also apply some of this shadow to the inner corners of your eyes. For the eyes, use the middle shade of the "Gobi Sands" Eye Shadow Trio to your crease and/or eyelid. Top off this look with the "Sheer Clover" Nourish-Mint Lipstick and voila!
This year, the beauty look at Altuzarra was very reminiscent of that bronzey glow everyone loves in the summer but it can easily be translated to the fall. Again, with this look it's important to start focusing on skin. Make sure you're following a skincare routine to help makeup glide on smoother.
You'll start off by applying your Mineral Tinted Moisturizer with your fingers and loading on a bold, peachy blush like our "Hibiscus" face accent (or our "Peach Lights" Face Accent is also a great option). For the eyes, you can use our new Foklor "Slate Shimmer" Eye Definer on the upper and lower lash line, blending it out with an angled brush for a really smokey look. Top the lashes off with our "Black Forest" Mosscara and you're set.
Yet another beautifully wearable look at the Thakoon show this season. It focused on beautiful, matte skin with a bronzey cheek, simple eye and lip and a nice liner to define the eyes.
As always, you'll start with a great skincare routine then use the Inner Light Mineral Dual Foundation to give coverage and a nice matte finish. You'll use the "Amazonia" Uruku Bronzer on the sides of the forehead, cheeks and under the jawline to give warmth to your complexion. On your eyes, you can use the "Black Orchid" Eye Definer on the lower lash line and the deep shade in the "Gobi Sands" Eye Shadow Trio on the outer corner of the lid. Coat the lashes with "Black Forest" Mosscara. Finish off with the "Agave Nectar" Lip Glaze on the lips and you're ready to go.
It's finally here: the new Autumn/Winter Makeup Collection. This season we've been equipped with an awesome collection of eye shadows, liners, glosses, lipsticks and a lip liner. It's one that you'll surely not want to miss.
We are so impressed with the beautiful shades that were chosen for this collection. They perfectly capture the mood of fall with many greens and browns all while keeping it a little glam with the shimmery rose shade, "Rose Quartz". There are an endless amount of looks that can be created with these shades and they can all be paired together beautifully.
WE love to use the shade "Chia" as a smokey liner as well as the shade "Balsam". Both these shades can also be used to add some depth and a little bit of definition to the outer corner. They are easily blended out to become less bold and deep as well. "Rose Quartz" would look beautiful on the lid as well as "Dusted Sage" but again, these shades are versatile and would also be beautiful in the crease.
For this collection, lip products seem to be prominent! We have some awesome new glosses that can be paired with some of the new lipsticks below or even worn on their own. The new Nourish-Mint Lip Shine in "Chuparosa" is beautifully pigmented and great for daily wear as is the "Pink Lupine", a.k.a. the perfect pinky neutral.
We are super excited with this collection's eyeliners! Both liners have a bit of shimmer in them which we think is perfect for the holiday season coming up. "Slate Shimmer" is a great deep gray decked out with shimmer that will be the perfect way to add definition to any smokey look. You'll also love "Gypsum Gold" which can easily be worn as an eye liner or a highlight in the inner corner.
This collection also completes your needs when it comes to lipsticks: an incredible everyday neutral and a bold wine red that will absolutely make a statement this holiday season. These are easily the most comfortable lipsticks that you'll ever put on as they are super creamy and have a great minty taste.
Make sure to ask your stylist or the front desk about the collection as it is limited edition and will only be available for a limited time!

Many of our male guests were loving the original Invati Shampoo, Conditioner and Revitalizer so much that Aveda ended up creating an Invati line especially for men! The two-step Invati line reduces hair loss with 98% naturally-derived ingredients. Four out of five men say their hair feels stronger and looks thicker after using this new line for more than 5 weeks.
Included in this incredible two-step system is the Invati Men Nourishing Exfoliating Shampoo and the Invati Men Scalp Revitalizer. As a first step, wash with the Exfoliating Shampoo. This shampoo exfoliates your scalp and conditions to help strengthen thinning hair. After shampooing, apply the Scalp Revitalizer gel to the scalp. This gel instantly thickens your hair at the root and invigorates your scalp when massaged in. Even if you aren't shampooing everyday, the Scalp Revitalizer is to be used everyday (hair can be dry for this step).
Before Invati Men was released, it was all about the original Invati (and still is for women worldwide!). This system is 97% naturally derived and is the perfect solution for thinning hair. It's proven to reduce hair loss by 33% and helps you to keep the hair you have longer. Aveda combines the power of Ayurveda (the ancient art of India) and modern technology to create "Densiplex", Aveda's invigorating blend of certified organic turmeric and ginseng.
Included in this system are three steps: shampoo, condition and revitalize. The Invati Exfoliating Shampoo removes build-up that can clog pores and renews your scalp with wintergreen-derived salicylic acid. As a second step, you will condition with the Invati Thickening Conditioner. This conditioner uses soy protein and naturally derived amino acids that mimic the hair's building blocks to help weightlessly thicken your hair from within. Use these as your shampoo and conditioner whenever you shampoo. As an everyday step, you'll spray in the Invati Scalp Revitalizer (16 sprays to be exact). This spray uses certified organic turmeric and ginseng that helps keep the hair you have longer.
Recently, Aveda also released the Invati Intensive Thickening Conditioner which is the perfect option for those who get a bit too dry from the original Invati Conditioner since it uses three times more natural oils and butters.
For more information about the Invati lines, please contact us: 413-322-9799 or ask your stylist/front desk coordinator.
A few months back, we were introduced to one of the most beautiful makeup collections out there: the Aveda Indian Sunset Limited-Edition Spring-Summer 2016 Collection. The collection includes two eyeliners, two lip glosses, one lip liner, two beautiful lip sticks and four unique eye shadows that are all perfect for the warm weather. Any skin tone or eye color can easily sport these shades.
By this time many of our guests have had the chance to experiment with some of these products. Even if you've tried a look or two including some of these products, there are endless ways to use them in your daily makeup routine this summer.
How-to: Peach Dusk
For those of you used to a simple, neutral eye using brown, taupe and/or cream shades, this "Peach Dusk" look will be a great option for you to use similar tones but add a little something interesting to your look. Because of the orange tone of this look, it's perfect for blue eyes (but any eye color can rock it!).
