When it comes to backstage beauty, few rule the scene behind the velvet curtain like Nordstrom Beauty and Fragrance Director, Cheri Botiz.

We connected with this VIP to learn her trend forecast for Fall 2011, check out her fave picks:

Metal Rush shined all over the catwalk. Platinum is the new natural and shades of copper are the accents.  At Derek Lam, blended metallic shadows were used to create an exaggerated cat eye shape that extended slightly towards the temples.

Hollywood Glow is always in season. Achieve radiant and revitalized skin by using a skincare brush, followed by a serum and moisturizer. Make sure to choose a foundation with an advanced formula, lightweight texture and all day coverage.
