Fall Beauty Essentials

Now that you are aware of a few fall wardrobe Musts. It’s time to update your hair and makeup routine. This season I noticed that many makeup artists are giving their clients very simple looks. Well frankly the basic black liquid eyeliner gets boring after a year of using - and over using. When you think of fall you tend to push towards neutrals, smoky-eyes, and lavenders which are all correct but instead of using the basic colors try subtle shimmer neutrals like peach, lavender, and beige. Then apply a deep plum or chocolate brown eyeliner and matching mascara. For your lips use a nude lip-gloss one shade darker than your actual shade. OPI’s new Espana collection is perfect for fall nail lacquer. There are plenty of magentas and deep-dark colors you are used to seeing in fall, but now they are updated! Last but not least, if you want to stick with your foundation from the summer that is always fine or you can try using a cream foundation depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin then just stick to whatever you are using. But if you don’t, a crème foundation will set off your entire look and give you a rich dewy complexion.

For your hair simply add a headband and put it in a low casual ponytail. You won’t believe how dressed-up you will look! (Remember to add volume at your roots to get the look just right.)
