Even though it is the middle of summer, it isn’t too soon to start thinking about fall beauty. Ramy Beauty Therapy sent their gorgeous fall 2011 makeup collection called Fall in Love to review on The Daily Connoisseur.

Ramy Gafni is known as the ‘brow king’ in New York as he is the guru to go to for shaping brows. He also has a high quality eponymous makeup line. The fall collection of makeup is a re-release of his favorite shades for the season- warming taupes, luscious plums, bronzed peaches… The colors, textures and pigments in this makeup line are quite luxurious. All of the shades in the collection are universally flattering- so you do not need to worry about what shades match your skin tone. I can personally attest that each shade worked well with mine. I am very impressed with the makeup- the high quality composition of the cosmetics allow the makeup to blend seamlessly into the skin tone and give off just the right amount of color and contour... and the sumptuous colors can be applied lightly for le no makeup look or a little heavier to bring in the drama of the season.
Here is the collection:
Eyeshadow in Neutral Impact I’ve always loved taupe shades to wear as eyeshadow because they look natural and can bring out subtle nuances in eye color. This color can be worn lightly for a slight le no makeup look-esque definition or it can be layered for a smoky eye effect.
Blush in Alive! This is my new favorite blush. It has a peachy, gold bronzed color- perfect for the transition of summer to fall. For those of you who long for le no makeup look but do not have time to apply eyeshadow, you can sweep this color over your lids with a blush brush and create an instant flattering glow to your skin and make your eye color pop.
Lipsticks. Ramy’s lipsticks are very moisturizing and are made with vitamin E, avocado oil and sunscreens. The fall collection has two shades:
Ramy Red! (pictured above, right) This is a deep pomegranate red whose color brings luscious connotations of the season. It can be worn in one sheer layer for a flush of color or layered for a dramatic red lip.
Thrive! (pictured above, left) This is my favorite color as I tend to favor deep plums. I find that plum colors can really make the eyes (especially green) stand out. A delightful shade for fall.
OMG Over Mascara Glitter and Eyeliner- This is not something I would typically wear as glittered eyelashes do not exactly fall in line with le no makeup look, but it would be fun to wear this to a holiday party or for an occasion that requires a bit of whimsy. The glitter is very subtle- so much so that you cannot see it on my eyelashes in the video. It is the sort of thing you would notice up close.
The prices for the collection are as follows:
Neutral Impact Eye Shadow: $17.00
Lipstick in Ramy Red! and Lipstick in Thrive!: $17.00
Alive! Blush: $19.00
