The Vibe: Clean, natural and wintertime windblown. To match this season’s Icelandic-inspired collection, with its soft flowing lines, lead stylist Martin Cullen created a subdued and youthful look. He washed each model’s hair with Phyto shampoo and conditioner before drying with an amika NRG professional hair dryer and straightening locks with an amika ceramic styler. “We wanted to give an almost undercut and shaved away look to the hair,” said Cullen. To achieve the ultra-sleek style on the left-side of models’ heads, Cullen made a deep part and pulled hair tight, stitching it in near the right ear. The rest of hair was dropped behind the back into the clothes, and slightly puffed out above collars to create the illusion of a faux bob.
A style force to be reckoned with, Sara Zucker is well known for providing daily outfit inspiration and scoping out incredible finds via her Tumblr, Farpitzs (which is the Yiddish word for ‘all dressed up,’ just in case you were curious). As if being one of the most popular fashion voices in the blogosphere wasn’t time consuming enough, the well-heeled trendsetter also happens to be Glamour magazine’s community manager. Lucky for us, she was able to make some time in her busy schedule to guest blog for us this week. Check back daily as Zucker shares everything from her favorite fall trends to what’s in her cosmetics bag.

Sure, it’s 90 degrees outside, but stores are beginning to put fall merchandise into full view. It is so strange to be pulling on tank tops and tiny shorts to avoid sweating on the subway and then suddenly, it’s time to start thinking about next season! By September, I have finally come to grips with the inevitable cooler temperatures and when the foliage starts to change, so does my beauty routine. I reflect the chillier weather in the nail colors that I wear by veering toward shimmery jewel tones like plum, emerald, and navy blue. And since my wardrobe perpetually borders on neutral overload, a deep saturated lip color is the perfect way to add brightness to any gray, black, tan, or ivory look I create.
Another major necessity for fall? A berry-hued cheek stain like RMS Beauty’s Lip2Cheek in Promise.
