Fall Fun: How To Make A Splash With Your Makeup This Fall
Fall is the perfect time to update your beauty routine. Bid farewell to summer and bring in the new season with bold makeup that’s sure to turn heads using these four tips:
Pumpkin Spice: Not Just for Your Latte
The arrival of fall brings with it a plethora of pumpkin spice — you’ll find it in everything from coffee to scented candles. Adapt the trend to your makeup routine with rich peach and orange shades, which come in variations to suit every skin tone. Go for a stylish monotone glow with warm pumpkin-inspired hues on eyes, cheeks, and lips — or keep the color concentrated to one feature. Try: Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette and Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit in Dirty Peach.
Achieve Maximum Impact with an Unexpected Lip Color
Bold lips are right on trend for fall. Instead of opting for a classic red or even an updated oxblood hue, go non-traditional with an unexpected shade like blue or black. When experimenting with an attention-getting lip, go for a matte finish to keep the look modern. To keep your lips from looking flaky, exfoliate them prior to applying lipstick. Try: Lime Crime Velvetines Matte Lipstick in Thistle or Black Velvet.
Forget Brows on Fleek — Embrace the Natural Brow
The recent trend of sharply contoured brows has made way for the natural brow. This brow is still bountiful; the difference is that the natural brow looks, well, more natural. The lines are less defined and the arches are softer, which still works to frame the face while imparting a youthful look that’s playful and relaxed. To master this look, use a brow pencil close to your natural brow color to lightly fill in sparse areas.
Add Some Sparkle for a Fabulous Finishing Touch
Don’t be afraid to top any look off with some sparkle this fall. Beauty companies ranging from drugstore to high-end are adding glittery shadows, liners, and loose sparkle products to their lineups. To keep the trend demure, try a glitter liner or shadow applied precisely along the upper lash line only. If you go for a bright color, keep the rest of your makeup neutral to avoid overkill.
