And just like that summer 2013 is gone and now it’s time to switch your makeup bag up a little. Whether you prefer loud, vibrant colors or neutral shades, the makeup tips below are sure to transform you into a dazzling diva, or a subtle sweetheart.
Try Winged Eyeliner
Eyeliner dates back to ancient times, but winged eyeliner was made popular by icons such as Twiggy in the 1960s. Also called cat eyes, is perfect for achieving a “done up” look without trying too hard. Often times, when I’m going out at night and I don’t feel like applying false lashes, I just put on winged eyeliner. It makes my small almond shaped eyes look bigger in just a few minutes. The best part about it is that you can choose the intensity.
Don’t be afraid of Dark Lips
When wearing dark lipstick, allow it to be the focal point of your face and let your lips do the talking. Pun intended. Also, if your lips are dry or cracked, exfoliate them because a bold lip color will accentuate your lips. Choose a lipstick that’s going to last. When dark lipsticks wear off, it’s more noticeable. Use a lip liner before and after you apply your lipstick as this will prevent feathering. Try a dark plum lip with lots of mascara and little to no eye shadow. It’s a simple look, but it speaks volumes.
Summer is the time for everything shimmer because let’s be honest everyone wants that Jada Pinkett Smith glow. However, shimmer on your face in the fall and winter reads: “I really wish it was still summer and I’m overcompensating.” Go matte and stay away from shimmery bronzers and focus highlight on areas such the bridge of the nose, chin, and forehead where light naturally hits.
Experiment with Jewel-toned Eye shadow
Usually people go for neutral or dark eyes in the fall, but bright colors like sapphire and emerald are making sure they get some action this fall. Jewel tones give the eyes a stunning effect. To achieve a smokey eye, place medium shade all over your eyelid and focus darker color in the crease or outer corner. Place the lighter shade on your brow bone and the inner corner of your eye. This makes your eyes appear brighter.
Change your Foundation and Concealer
Many women people get lighter in the fall and winter months and need to go up a shade. Additionally, many women experience dry skin during these months and need a formula that accommodates this change. Make a trip to your local department store or drugstore to find a foundation and concealer to suit your moisture needs.
