We’ve again on the cusp of a new fashionable season that means nothing more than it is high time to start thinking over your fab Fall/Winter 2011-2012 beauty looks. Thus we’ve picked out all the most fashionable and fab Fall/Winter 2011-2012 makeup trends straight from the runways for you to draw inspiration for your own autumnal beauty transformation.
Again nude makeup trend steps into the forthcoming Fall/Winter 2011-2012 season. And no wonder actually as nude is never out. Fast, easy, natural and fresh is what never better reflects the concept of this uber trendy and fab Fall/Winter 2011-2012 makeup trend.
Perhaps, the main difficulty here is to create radiant nude makeup (what is more important not to overdo, remember it is still nude makeup) that would accentuate your natural beauty. All you need is makeup foundation tone that perfectly suits your complexion, neutral eyeshadow shade, mascara to make your eyes pop, a bit of blush applied to the apples of your cheekbones for more vivid look and nude lip-gloss or lipstick color to complete the look.
Draw inspiration from the best runway beauty looks created by Balmain, Versace, Valentino, Alexander Wang and others:
The Fall/Winter 2011-2012 season is all about contradiction. On the one hand there is nude or even almost no makeup, while on the other vampy lips of different shades. Everything from our fave orange and red lipstick shades to burgundy and dark purple ones. Fall/Winter 2011-2012 Fashion Shows were all over studded with vampy lip makeup looks. Such fashion gurus as Diane von Furstenberg and Yves Saint Laurent opted for saturated lip makeup coupled with flawless complexion.
Naturalness runs through all the Fall/Winter 2011-2012 beauty trends. We can kiss goodbye to thin over-plucked brows as now thick natural sometimes even boyish eyebrow look is ‘in’. Moreover Fall/Winter 2011-2012 makeup trends make us to define eyebrows with black pencil as we saw on the runways of Alexander Wang, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Oscar de la Renta.
Smoky eye makeup is one of the hottest Fall/Winter 2011-2012 makeup trends though as usual. The only thing here that changes about smoky eyes is the eyeshadow shade. Classic version of ‘smokies’ like we saw on the runways of Dolce & Gabbana and Chloe fashion shows is also ‘in’ alongside with a bit more unusual eyeshadow shades like the ones that models sported on the fashion shows of Narciso Rodriguez, Chanel or heavily smoked eyes of Vera Wang and Roberto Cavalli models.
Lines, lines and again lines… from thin winged eye lines to weird thick lines covering almost all the lid, fashion shows were stuffed with gorgeous beauty looks created just with an eyeliner. You can go for a classic version like the one that was spotted on the runways of Giorgio Armani or Gianfrance Ferre Fall/Winter 2011-2012 fashion shows. As well as you can opt for more dramatic version a la Dolce & Gabbana or Louis Vuitton models’ eye makeup.
And in conclusion I simply can’t pass through this fab Fall/Winter 2011-2012 makeup trend spotted on the fashion shows of Rodarte, Donna Karan, Prada and many others. From warm autumnal orange eyeshadow shade to acid orange mixed with a bit pink, designers made orange eye makeup the newest Fall/Winter 2011-2012 makeup trend.

Carolyn Diamond is much more than a makeup artist and esthetician. She makes
you feel so welcome and comfortable form the moment you walk into her doors.
The first time I went to see Carolyn (about 5 years ago) she told me that my eye
brows were uneven and that I needed to let them grow out so she could help me,
taking her advice and trusting her I let them grow, she then waxed them they
never looked better. I continued to see Carolyn for all my waxing needs not
knowing she had all these other talents. I was getting married and Carolyn was
able to help me with all my skin problems. I was not the easiest client, two
days before my wedding I decided to go tanning (after Carolyn warned me not to).
I got sunburn on my face pretty bad, calling Carolyn in a panic she was very
understanding and fit me into her busy schedule, she made me feel at easy and
assured me that everything would be ok. The day of my wedding she worked her
magic and I looked and felt beautiful. She is truly passionate for her work and
clients. I have recently moved away from the Philly area and cannot find anyone
to wax me or take care of my skin the way Carolyn did. I cannot wait to come
back to the area and see my favorite esthetician and “Friend.”
I know first hand how women always strive to look their best. I have worked with many professionals over the years as an oculo-facial plastic surgeon. However, one stands out from the pack. Carolyn Withers-Diamond is a brilliant innovator, a creative make up artist and a professional colleague who I have worked with for over 5 years. She is a true inspiration, on both a professional and personal level. As a medical aesthetician, she has a keen understands of facial anatomy, facial complexion and the intricacies of facial harmony and balance. She spends her days promoting the health and well being of clients through skin care and makeup. Yet she does so much more! She has capitalized on her family background, artistic skills, and entrepreneurial spirit to create to push the frontier of beauty, keeping women youthful and sexy. There is no better esthetician I know!

Wow, Carolyn, when I asked you for a professional look and photograph for my website, you delivered! I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to have someone actually listen to what I want and then present it with timely and expert style. It was not just the remarkable makeover, and the flattering photographs, but the fun we had during the entire process.
By providing quality and service you have created the most valuable business tool. trust. I enthusiastically refer you to any woman who is looking for a "partner" to bring out her true beauty & essence and capture it on film! Thank you.

From the day I got engaged I knew who was going to do my make up on my wedding day. Your great sense of humor and confidence put me at ease and made me feel so comfortable on a very hectic day. I was amazed by how you made my natural beauty shine through. My make up stayed on all night long and throughout the night people asked me if I was pulled right out of a magazine. I wanted to thank you for making me look and feel so special on the biggest day of my life! Thank you,

Carolyn is an artist. Her make-up techniques involve studying your facial features, finding the correct colors and contrasts and products that magically transform your face into a masterpiece. I felt wonderful after she gave me a make-up make-over, as if I became a member of the "Beautiful Women Club", too!

"Carolyn's knowledge base of makeup both with respect to application and presentation is superb! I really enjoyed the small group size -- allows for more one-on-one interaction from Carolyn as well as other students. Looking forward to future classes."
I wanted to say thanks so much for doing such a wonderful job the morning of Liz's wedding. She looked absolutely amazing, especially her eyes!
I also love the way you applied make-up to Rachel - it was subtle enough for a Jr. Bridesmaid but showed up beautifully in the photographs. And of course, thanks for my great make up application-it lasted all night, through tears of joy and lots of dancing! We all had fun in the hotel room that morning with our mimosa's and make up! Again, thanks so much, you're the best!
— Barbara Ginsburg (mother of the bride and Jr. Bridesmaid)
I wanted to sincerely thank you for the excellent services that you have provided me time and time again. I am constantly complimented on my fabulous brows, thanks to your great work. Whenever I come for an appointment, you always make me feel welcome. Our sessions never seem rushed, and I always feel as though you never give anything less then 100%. Your professionalism, which at the same time is warm and inviting, makes coming to see you a great and comfortable experience. I will continue to recommend you to all of my friends. You are certainly one of a kind!
Thank you so much again,

Thank you so much for all you have taught me. I feel so much more comfortable with make-up application since I have taken your class's and you have truly made make-up into something fun and exciting. I look forward to coming back to the Philadelphia Academy for Make Up and Special Effects to continue mastering my make-up skills.

Carolyn is a great artist! I know from experience and her portfolio speaks for itself. Anything you need, she can do. Wedding makeup, extreme looks for Halloween or other occasions, day/night looks. She really is quite diverse in what she can accomplish. I wish I had more events and special occasions just so I could have her do my makeup more. She's by far the best!
Carolyn is fully committed to helping women feel wonderful about themselves & women who are struggling with illness have a special place in her heart. Carolyn is the BEST and is an absolute wizard with makeup
Carolyn Diamond, you are the best! I have been a client of yours for years, and have recently taken on your make up expertise as well as your amazing photography. The photo session we had with my baby girl and I was simply wonderful! I felt so comfortable and I had so much fun! The photos were FABULOUS…better than any other photos I’ve had done of my children. The lighting, the softness…. breath-taking. You are very talented in all that you do and your love for your work is very evident! Every experience I’ve had with you has been professional and fun! Thank you for giving me such beautiful pictures. I’ll cherish them forever! Let’s not forget how awesome my brows always look…perfection!

"Carolyn did my makeup this past summer for a wedding I was in. All of the bridesmaids and the bride looked so fabulous!! I've gone to Carolyn in the past for eyebrows, etc - and no one is better!! I am very meticulous about how my makeup looks, I am a singer and an artist as well, and anytime I have let anyone else do my makeup in the past, I usually end up washing it all off and doing it myself. But absolutely not this time!! I can honestly tell you that Carolyn is a true professional and is such a talented, wonderful artist - you will NOT be disappointed!!! She is truly the BEST!!!"
- Kristen Murray
I was referred to Carolyn in January 2010 for eyebrow waxing. She was very honest with me and said to let them grow for a few more months as they were too thin. After I came back, she shaped my brows and offered me advice on skincare. I slowly started to buy her skincare products, Glominerals makeup and have the MicroDermabrasian treatments. A year later, my skin looks younger and has never looked so good. My eyebrows are shaped so nice that I don't need to get them waxed all the time anymore.
I would highly recommend Carolyn Diamond as she is not only knowledgeable, but very sincere in what she does.

Time and again, I have seen the dramatic transformations, at Carolyn's extremely GIFTED hands. Not only does she accentuate every one of her subjects outer beauty...she brings forth the spiritual inner beauty as well! To attempt to describe just how many humanitarian efforts and causes she contributes to, would be futile. Simple stated, a STELLAR human being!
