With Fall so close upon us, it’s a good idea to revamp our makeup bags and include some of the hottest beauty trends of the season. Try one or try them all (just not together, please!)
Metallic eyeshadow is a huge trend this season, and there are many ways to play it up. Rich bronze or gold shadows look great on darker skinned ladies, while deep blue or eggplant works well on fair skin. If you want a universally flattering shade, pick a silver metallic – it looks good on nearly everyone! One to try: Urban Decay Metallic Eyeshadow Intense Shadow, Strip ($17.)
Wimpy lashes need not apply; this season, it’s all about mega volume, mega length and mega oomph! Get the look by using false lashes, either individual lashes or a strip, and apply mascara to the lashes to really make your eyes pop. One to try: e.l.f. Dramatic Lash Kit ($1.49)
Red lips are always a classic look, but it can be intimidating if you aren’t sure which color to choose. Rock the look this fall with a coral-based red for fair skin; true or pink reds for medium skin, and deep burgundy or brick red for darker skin tones. If you have olive skin, you won’t fail with a tomato red shade. One to try: Lancome L’ABSOLU ROUGE in Absolute Rouge ($29.)
Navy Blue Nail Polish
Of all the nail color trends this season, one of my favorites is deep navy blue. It’s flattering on nearly every woman, and you can find the perfect shade in all price points. Plus, it’s subtle enough to work for both the office and a night on the town! To prevent the dark shade from staining nails, apply a base coat prior to applying color. One to try: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish, Navy Baby ($6.99)
