Fall is finally here and with it comes a new wardrobe and a new look. In the fall looking confident and glamorous is what it is all about. It’s about showing off your assets without having to show off skin like you do in the summer. And with that new wardrobe comes the new make-up. For some people it also means to change the hair.
For example: I love to dye my hair(that may be a bit of an understatement). Once I started a couple years ago I couldn’t stop and I wanted to try out every color. In the summertime I can pull off the dark hair look, but once Fall comes I have to have the lighter hair. Why? Because when the cold comes I lose whatever sun I had and with dark hair I look gothic because it enhances my pale skin.
It is like that with make-up as well. There are five important make-up trends that you must know, liquid eyeliner, red or wine shades of lipstick, the new gray eye shadow hue, and strong brows. Liquid liner has made a real comeback and was all over the runways. It’s easier than you think to pull off and when you do it’s the ultimate alluring look.
Black makes the boldest statement, but for the faint of heart go for eggplants, forest greens or bronzes. If you have a shaky hand and can just never draw on that fluid perfect line, no worries, simply apply the liquid in short connecting dashes. Keep a small tipped concealer brush dipped into a little foundation to clean up any mistakes. The short wand from Mac LiquidLast Liner because is the easiest to control.
If it’s the eyes you want to focus on go for the new hue of grey eye shadow. It’s a sparkling brown grey that resembles warm granite. This can be swept across the lid from the lash line to the crease and under the lower lashes for a smoldering smoky eye effect.
Go for a more nude lip with this look so you don’t look too made up. Brows should be full and healthy. If yours are a bit thin or simply won’t grow back fill them in with a bit of brow pencil to mimic the trend. Use the double ended Lorac Creamy Brow Pencil with color on one side and a great brow brush on the other.
Another sexy trend is red and wine shades of lipsticks and the colors can look beautiful on any lip shape. For smaller lips simply choose sheer colors with a hint of shimmer. The shimmer will capture the light giving the illusion of fuller lips and the sheerness of the color will give you a hint of the trend without going full-force. Try Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in “Guilt-Free”. For those of you who want to paint on a bold opaque shade stick with creamy formulas, line the lips with a nude or clear lip pencil to keep lipstick from feathering. Try Guerlain Cupidon Lip Liner.
And always remember not to apply too much of one thing. You want to use the make-up to enhance your natural beauty. You don’t want to scare people away. I always say that you want the people around you to think that you have no make-up on, but that you look that way completely on your own.
