Fall Makeup

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m definitely a summer girl – I just love the sunny season and the fun, vibrant makeup colors that come along with it. However, I’ve been really excited the new fall makeup trends this year. Here’s a rundown on some of the color palettes I’m enjoying so far:

Autumn Shadows – Shimmery golds and earthy greens are making a comeback this year. These colors look great on all skin tones and really make your eyes pop:

 For Dark Skin: Yves Saint Laurent Ombre Solo Smoothing Long-Lasting Eye Shadow in #10 Shimmering Brown and Smashbox Eye Shadow in Safari.


Vanilla Shadows – Creamy vanillas add a sexy shimmer to lids:

COLOR DESIGN - Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Smooth Hold

• For Medium Skin: L’Oréal Wear Infinite Eye Shadow in Morning Light

 For Dark Skin: Lancôme Colour Design Eye Shadow in Shimmer. (pictured)

Caramel Glosses – Caramel is sensuous color on the lips. To keep it from washing out the face, add a dusty pink blush:

Mauve Tones – Mauve shades are making a comback but these tones are richer than your typical rosy pink:
