"Polished brass will pass upon more people than rough gold." ~Lord Chesterfield
I am a firm believer in syncing your makeup, perfume, and hair with the season. I tend to wear actual lipstick in the fall and winter and lip gloss in the spring and summer. I just feel more put together that way. I also change my perfume from fruity and clean (Pleasures Intense) to something a little warmer and heavier (Angel). Then it's time to get the sun bleaching out of my hair. In the summer my hair lightens quite substantially but then in the cooler months, I dye it back to my dark brown shade.
Fall is definitely a good makeup season for me, because the color palate is darker and complements my skin and hair better. I love jewel tones! And it looks like deep red lipstick is in for the 2012 fall season! Woo!
Check out the following tips and trends and rock em!
1. BLACK CHERRY LIPSTICK
For an even more dramatic effect, Allure suggests applying straight from the tube and skip the lipstick brush. And to avoid that washed out, "undead" look, blend in a nice bronzer on your cheeks.
2. BROWN SMOKY EYES
I didn't even see this coming because when I think of smoky eyes, I think of black eyeliner.Not this season! Toss that black eyeliner back in your bag and opt for brown.
3. GREEN EYESHADOW
I haven't really explored this option cause I stick to plums and browns for the most part, but here is another trend that actually isn't that crazy! At least it's not orange lipstick... See? Could be worse.
4. GOLD ACCENTS
I'm quite excited about this one...
5. APRÈS-SKI CHEEKS (rosy cheeks)
