Fall Fresh Makeup
The arrival of autumn means makeup trends inspired by changing leaves instead of tropical drinks, and bright hues giving way to rich, deep tones. What looks great at the office this fall?
Clinique takes its 'Black Honey' classic up a notch this season by turning the color into a lipstick/gloss combo. Just a swipe gives a tint of wine, or layer for a sheer, deep burgundy look.
Eye shadow trio palettes, like this one from NARS, give you the choice between a subtle smokey eye or a shimmery sweep of color. If your workplace is more conservative, you can opt for a range of neutral colors, like the Stila Natural Eye Shadow Palette.
Fall is the perfect time to fish out that red lipstick and amp up your Friday look. Not sure which tone works best with your skin color? Maybelline’s "Red Revival" shade looks good on virtually everyone.
Dewy and flawless is the theme for autumn skin. A foundation primer will even out complexion and make your makeup last longer. When picking foundation, experts advise testing shades on your jaw line to find the right match.
