Summer is officially over and we are heading into fall, and while you are starting to get your wardrobe together, don’t forget to refresh your beauty routine. Fall 2011 is all about standing out with bold, dramatic trends that will keep you looking oh-so-fabulous. Try some of these fall looks that will get you noticed this season:
Bright lips are in big time. Whether you want to go with a classic red, like MAC Russian Red, or a bright orange shade, like Yves Saint Laurent ‘Gloss Volupté’ Sheer Sensual Gloss Stick, SPF 9 in Tangy Orange, brights work well on all skin tones when paired with a neutral eye palette.
If bright lips aren’t your thing, you can still create a dramatic fall look by going with metallic smoky eyes. Grab the bareMinerals Smoky Metallic Eye Sizzling 4-pc Collection and you will have everything you need to create a bold eye look. Pair with mascara and a neutral lip for the perfect look to take you into fall.
If you prefer to keep your eye makeup neutral, big, chiseled, dramatic eyebrows are a very hot alternative, as seen on the runway. The trick is to keep your browns shaped, just fuller and more defined. Use a black pencil to achieve those big, boyish brows. A great choice is the Shiseido ‘The Makeup’ Natural Eyebrow Pencil.
Feathers are all the rage lately, and feather hair accessories are a big fall trend. If you are reluctant to take the plunge with color, feathers allow you to jazz up your hair without making a commitment. My daughter and I got Featherlocks extensions and loved them! Feathers are attached by a crimp bead to hair, and they last about 2 months. You can go with a neutral colored feather for a natural look, or go bold with a bright color. Add multiples for a funky look that is on trend. Check out Featherlocks Hair Extensions for a salon location near you.
