Purple Reign

73

The rich purples found in royal gowns, exotic flowers, and the decadence of the YSL collections from the ’70s were the inspiration behind the hues and fabrics featured in Gucci and Oscar de la Renta’s autumn/winter 2011 collections. The beautiful shade wasn’t limited to clothes, though—it leaked into the fall beauty collections too. This autumn, whether you wear a violet shadow, shiny amethyst lip gloss, or royal purple nail polish, your makeup can make you look and feel downright luxurious.

1 Illamasqua Intense Gloss

Coat your lips with this rich, shiny gloss to look like a princess. The deeper the color, the better, so pile on layers for a solid cover.

2 YSL Five Color Harmony Palette

This gorgeous collection of shades can create myriad stunning looks. We love them with a simple black dress or sequined gown. Just be sure to add some gleaming jewels to complete the look.

3 Hard Candy Nail Varnish

Even your nails should look like gems, and this pretty polish will set you back only $1!  A sparkly color will make sure everyone takes notice.
