Fall is about 20 days from now. I’m just going to focus en-depth my focus on this season as the days go by.
I’m a beauty trends’ lover and this is why I tried to compile this post with 4 must-try trends for Fall 2012. After reading this post, you might need to check your makeup boxes out in order to know what’s missing to be looking perfect in Fall.
1. Pink Cheeks:
I am loving this trend the most! I believe it makes anyone of us looking even preppier and there’s nothing like it to make you feel younger and beautiful!
Products I recommend: MAC powder blush “Pink Swoon”, “Benetint” by Benefit, “Amour” by NARS.
2. Strong Red Lips:
This is a classic and what better than a classic touch to your makeup. The bolder the red you use it, the crazier your makeup will look. I love this alternative, especially when I’m not trying to keep the makeup focus on my eyes.
Products I recommend: MAC “Ruby Woo”, NARS “Cruella” matte lips pencil, Dior “Cherry red”.
3. Bold Brows:
This trend has been here since last winter and it will be ongoing for a while. If you have very thin eyebrows, try not to pluck them regularly and use eye brows enhancers.
Products I recommend to enhance your eyebrows (make sure to pick the right shade according to your hair and skin color): Benefit “Raising Eyebrows”, Benefit “Instant Brow” Pencil, Benefit “brows a-go-go”.
4. Jewel-toned makeup and nail polishes:
Jewel tones are a must for this Fall and Winter. When we say jewel tones, we’re referring to emerald green, wine/oxblood, dark sapphire blue, dark gold, etc.
Products I recommend: NARS “High Society” Trio Eyes, CHANEL “Variation” palette. And make sure to check MAC’s individual eyeshadows, they have so many shades of jewel tones eyeshadows.
Now here’s an example of a jewel tone nail polish. Chanel released “Vertigo” for Fall 2012, it is a sort of a very dark and shimmery plum. Don’t you love it?
Other jewel tone nail polishes’ suggestions: “Carry On” by Essie (a dark plum), “Blue Satin” by Chanel (very dark blue), “Going Incognito by Essie (dark emerald).
