A quick-start guide to Fall 2010 makeup trends

by Bionic Beauty on 29.Aug.2010 · 11 comments

Can you believe that it’s almost September? I don’t know where the time has gone. It seems I was just planning articles for Spring 2010 and now I’m brainstorming ideas for Halloween makeup tutorials. It’s craziness, I tell ya!

Anyhow, as an “intro” to this Fall’s beauty and makeup trends, I’m linking to a guide by Total Beauty. This way until I get a chance to run-down all the trends I see approaching, and how to achieve them without spending a fortune on new makeup (which is fun… but can play hell on your budget!).

The last beauty trend I followed, was when I got the infamous Posh Spice/Victoria Beckham angled hairstyle from a few years ago. I loved it, but got sick and tired of flat-ironing my naturally curly hair every day (which has a mind all its own, so the efforts were a pain). It was such a time-sucker. Usually, I don’t follow trends, but occasionally draw a bit of inspiration from them. I’m interested in checking out that Total Beauty list.

Hi Tashi, I had that hair cut for awhile too! I got it about a year before Posh and I was so upset when everyone had it. So now I’m growing mine out. But apparently, my hair texture has undergone a change again. Did you know the average woman’s hair changes every 5-7 years?

Anyhow, it’s just past my shoulders now!! I haven’t had hair this long in over 10 years. But getting back to the texture change- I have these little waves now. The only ones that bug me are these two “wings” that flip out at the ends of my bangs. So I’m always flat-ironing them. Thankfully working from home, I don’t have to iron it much. I can’t imagine what you had to go through each day. I’d go bonkers. I hate even blow-drying my hair unless I’m going out some place spiffy. 😉

Jami, I don’t blame you for being irked! I change my style every once in a great while, trying not to “follow the herd” (er, ah, well, except for the Posh “do”). Sometimes, because the previous cut was not what I hoped it would be. Then again, we are chicks, and it’s our birthright (LOL!) to change our style whenever we darn-well please. 😉 Fun it is, yes? Variety is the spice of life!

Yeah, it took me a long time to flat-iron my hair. Plus, I’m sometimes uber-picky on my hair, which added to the “grief”. Thankfully, I have a great iron. I had to finally throw in the towel; fighting my natural curls was futile. Now, I stick to flat-ironing only my bangs, either in the non-summertime, or for special occasions. I think it’s cool that you can work from home. I suppose Woo never critiques your hairdo before “work” each day or a spiffy sorta event? 🙂 My dog is almost as bad as Stacy and Clinton! LOL

Variety is the spice of life! That’s why I’m always changing up my hair color. Right now I’m trying to decide if I should go with a deeper red from Ion, or possibly keep my Medium Red Brown and add highlights in bright, bright red (I have a bottle of Manic Panic’s Vampire Red here somewhere).

I love working from home and I believe I finally found my “calling” in blogging and web design work. However, now it just needs to start paying my bills…. I’d at least like to break even. My savings is nearly gone. I’m not able to work a “real” job anymore (I was a contractor for the defense industry prior to my health issues which now cause me to be home). And yep, it’s nice that I don’t have to get dressed up or snazzy for Woo. He doesn’t care. Although I do make it a point to look at least semi-presentable even if I’m hanging at home alone. 😉

Thanks Joycey! And thanks for your Doggy Cupcakes recipe article today! I am making some for Woo and Sylvia this week!

Ooh! Doggie cupcakes?? I’ll have to cruise on over to Woo’s site for the recipe. Thanks, Joycey and Jami for the info. My Yorkie loooves treats. I hope to try the cupcake thing for him soon. 🙂

Jami, I’m so sorry that you have significant health problems that caused you to be taken out of the “regular” working world. 🙁 It’s easy for me to say this, but I sincerely offer, that everything happens for a reason, even if it stinks worse than a row of port-a-potties at a festival.

We readers really appreciate your efforts on the sites!! I took a poll — they all agreed with me. 😉 LOL Seriously, thank you! Keep on truckin’, and have faith (and perseverance) that things WILL improve. Wrack your brain (and maybe Woo’s and his buddies’ too) for ideas on how to break even, make more, and so on. I wish I had the answers for you, I’m sorry. In the meantime, hang in there, keep up the fantastic work on trendy Fall 2010 stuff, non-trendy stuff, and whatever else that’s kept you so successful and HERE. 😀 Woot-woot!

Thanks Tashi. Heck, things could be a LOT worse, and for that I am thankful. And I am also very thankful that my “illness” (for lack of a better word) brought me to blogging. I don’t think I would have had the guts to start Bionic Beauty if it had not been for my recovery time stuck in bed back in 2007. I was literally going bonkers laying on the bed and couch every day with nothing but daytime TV and my books to keep me occupied (I didn’t have Woo back then either). So I started freebie hunting on the web to support my shampoo and conditioner habit and once I started finding so many (and filling all my family and friends’ email inboxes with the freebies), I decided there would be an easy way to communicate it all at once. And thus BB was born.

Thank you, sincerely, for your words of encouragement. They really do mean quite a lot to me!
Stay Bionic!!
