Autumn is not only for trick or treaters and roasted turkeys but the subtle color changes of the leaves remind us trendsetters that fall is the time to change OUR looks too! From red hot lips to eye-catching shadows, these must-try trends are easy to apply. So pull out that make-up bag and get ready to throw out the old and bring in the new.
The smoky eye, cat eye and other mysterious looking liner looks are super trendy this fall. Start with a rich charcoal liquid liner followed by either a lengthening mascara or falsies. Try out a few “new” lines (under, over, thicker, thinner, etc.) Round your smoky eye style with a darker hue of eye shadow, in deep violet, espresso or hunter green.
Silvers and golds are great but mix them up a little this season with blue or green eye shadow, making your eyes sparkle! Line your lids with these metallic shadows giving your eye color a light reflection that makes them appear larger.
Since summer days are coming to a quick close, it’s time to give up the self-tanner and tanning beds. A dewy, flushed face is in for fall! Skip the matte powders and go for the moisturized “just ran a mile” look. Peach or rosy cheeks are the hot colors but just enough to peek through and pop.
You see them all over television. A REAL housewife would not dare leave home without them – not credit cards – but fake eyelashes. Whether you want to try out a few single lashes or go for the whole lash, there are dozens of looks and thicknesses when selecting falsies. Make sure you use a glue that is clear to avoid the white globs that can show through the lashes.
The Red Lip
Nothing new to the fashion world, the red lip is coming back with a bang! Not an orange based red, but the literal cherry red lipstick that defines glamour. Think Marilyn Monroe. Keep in mind that an entire face full of make-up is not required. Go easy on the eyes and cheeks, while letting the lips speak for themselves.
It’s a risky look, but dark lips are one of the hotter and more daring trends for fall. Revealing your inner vampire via a black lip is all over the runway right now. Reserved more for the evening look, this risqué style makes a serious statement – coffin couture!
