The Face of Fall: Velveteen Dream

Fall 2012’s most sumptuous and irresistible fabric also proves to be a must for the face. Little is more seductive than a lush, velvety complexion topped with smoldering velvet lips. Whether you go for a deep bordeaux (another major trend come autumn) or a more approachable pink, be sure to keep everything else clean and sophisticated – velvet deserves to indulge in the spotlight.
