Growing up I always loved summer, it was a time of freedom when we could run around and play to no end. With years I learned that every season is special in its own way. And with years fall has been growing more and more on me. Fall is all about rich colors, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin spice.
With a change in seasons comes a change in the makeup bag. It is time to ditch those light summer tones for rich browns, burgundy and green tones. If you need a little inspiration or just love makeup, then this post is for you.
One of the new releases at the drugstore is the Maybelline City Mini palette in collaboration with beauty blogger Makeup by Shayla. The eyeshadow palette contains gold, browns, and burgundy tones which can suit any season and especially fall. You can create any desirable eye look, from simple daytime look to the smokey eye.
What better season to wear emerald green than in fall and Chanel Ombre Premiere 18 Verde captivated me when I first set my eyes on it. Another Chanel Ombre Premiere eyeshadow that I wanted to mention is 40 Gris Anthracite. The eyeshadow is green-gray toned which is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Chanel single eyeshadows apply shear and to achieve bold eye look the product should be build up.
One of my recent splurges has been MAC loose pigment in the shade Copper. Although there are more than enough copper toned eyeshadows in my collection, none of them come close to this shade. Mixing pigment with a drop of Fix Plus or any other spray you can create a copper wet look effect.
Fall makeup looks associated with bold lip colors, but we often forget that a perfect shade of nude can make a perfect fall look complete. The lipstick I chose for fall is Revlon Super Lustrous in the shade 671 Mink. Revlon lipsticks have been around for generations and they are known to be used on some most iconic celebrities such as Audrey Hepburn. A classic cream formula feels comfortable and moisturizing on the lips.
For those who crave something bold, you should stop by MAC counter and take a look at a Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson 2 lipstick. It is unlike any other bold trendy lip color. A coppery brown shade is a guarantee to catch peoples eyes. The shade looks more natural on darker skin tones.
And for those who are not ready for a bold color as MAC Tajan P Henson 2 lipstick, but want something brighter than Revlon lipstick, then there is Bobbi Brown lipstick in the shade 26 Roseberry. A berry toned lip product that is easy to wear and looks wonderful for the fall season.
To finish off the blog post I wanted to throw in few autumnal nail polishes. My new discovery is Salon Perfect nail polishes. An inexpensive drugstore brand that contains Keratin which helps to strengthen nails. The two nude autumnal shades are 155 Brownie Scouts Honor and 153 Birthmark Beauty. For festive mood, there is Julie nail polish in the shade Brady Bear. It’s an eye-catching shimmery emerald green with hints of blue. And fall couldn’t be without red nail polish . This season I chose Revlon Nail Enamel in the shade 660 Divine which is a burgundy shade with the specs of gold.
