Earlier this month I met with Aerin Lauder at a cocktail reception hosted in her honour by Ken Downing and Neiman Marcus. Aerin was visiting Dallas to showcase her recently launched beauty line, and chat about her Holiday 2012 Color Collection: An Evening Out and An Evening In.  Post-cocktails, I visited Neiman Marcus at NorthPark Center the next day to chat with Aerin. So, how does one achieve effortless beauty? Aerin knows how…

Tell me about the Holiday Collection?  It’s a wonderfully edited collection that’s really about an evening in or an evening out, very festive, there are two neutral lipsticks—in every collection that we do, I love neutrals and nudes, it’s something that I feel very strong about and it’s something that is unique about this brand. We’ve got the two fashion colours, pinks and deep plum that comes out quite cheery when you put it on and then two nudes, and then these wonderful two new lip glosses that I love.  The palette is really wonderful you can’t make a mistake with it, it’s very easy to apply, easy to mix the colours, and the highlighter on the left is easy for your cheekbone or brow bone, and it’s very easy to update a look from day to evening.
