Fall is here. I mean, it’s been here, but now that we’re in November it is only fitting that it “officially” is here, right? We can now say bye to our Summer hair, lips, and beaches and hello to vampy, moody, and beautiful dark looks to close out the year!
Many of these trends you maybe wouldn’t have thought about, but they are just perfect! With the “90s” making a comeback in the makeup department, some of these looks we’ve all worn at one time or another are starting to become relevant again and I love it!
Glossy eyes are going to be a big thing this Fall/Winter season but it can be a bit tricky to pull it off. For this look you want to choose a shade that is neutral but has just a hint of shimmer to draw to the eye. Then you can use a multipurpose balm and with your index finger spread it on each lid. Little goes a long way. Next take a clean fluffy brush and distribute the balm by softening the edges by going all the way along your brown bone. This will keep the gloss from traveling too far up your eyes.
The ‘I just woke up from partying all night and forgot to remove my eye makeup’ look is going to be big as well. This “worn in” look can be achieved by lining your eyes with a Kohl liner and smudging it with a bit of an eye shadow and a brush to distribute it all over your lid evenly.
When using a matte lipstick it is super important that your lips be healthy and smooth. I mentioned earlier that you can exfoliate your lips and here’s the recipe: take a teaspoon of granulated white sugar, half a teaspoon of olive oil, and half a teaspoon of honey. Mix it all together and apply to your lips in circular motions. Once all of the dead skin has been removed, rinse your lips with luke warm water and apply freely and as much needed lip balm. Your lips will thank you!
Your skin should always be healthy, some of these looks can wash you out so make sure that you’re either using a light bronzer or highlight your face where needed. It’s ok to mix metallic eye shadows and a brown lipstick! Don’t be scared!
