Fall 2012 Beauty Trends

Fall 2012 Beauty Trends

Since the change of the millennium, fashion, beauty, interior design, and other aesthetic indicators have been celebrating multiple decades concurrently. Not that long ago, trends came and went, where one era or particular look was popular for a while and then faded away. Once upon a time, each decade actually had its own distinctive look. Nowadays, one can observe strong influences from the 1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s all in the same season’s runways.
