Labor Day is officially a week away signaling the end of summer and the beginning of another stylish season. Along with the end of summer parties and fitting in last minute vacays is the switching out of closets and makeup bags. I’m even on the ball when it comes to that, taking the time to clean out my makeup drawers to make room for new and fun fall things. And, as with every new season on this piece of the blogosphere, it’s time for another “Six Things You Need” feature.
What does the Fall have in store when it comes to makeup? In a few words – retro, metallics, barely there beauty, and plenty of pretty fall colors
Fall Inspired Eyeshadow Palette
Makeup brands have already released their Fall makeup collections and one thing they have in common are eyeshadow palettes filled with beautiful shades that scream autumn leaves and cooler weather. Dark greens, matte purples, and daytime nudes are all you need to get through this season looking gorgeous and on trend.
If red lipstick just isn’t your thing then a nude color is the way to go. Balenciaga’s minimalist take on beauty can easily translate into real life, with the right foundation and a beautiful nude lip that works for every single occasion.
Black Gel Eyeliner
Remember the swinging sixties trend I told you about last week? The retro trend is carrying over into the Fall beauty world with thick lined eyes and exaggerated cat eyes. Black liner will be your best friend this season, the gel formula making it easy to get the dramatic look you want and the staying power you need.
Designers like Versace and Prada had their models sporting some over the top lashes on their Fall runways. While we don’t want to look like we’re rocking spiders on our eyes, there are other options to voluminous lashes than just mascara. I took the leap into false lashes land and it was a really fun and easy trip! Definitely worth getting a pair for your beauty bag.
Another big beauty trend on the fall fashion runways was metallic eyeshadow – from shimmery bronze to iced out silvers. Having these shadows on hand gives you a nice break from the traditional seasonal colors and add some beautiful drama to your life.
If you’re going to go for the barely there look you gotta keep it flawless, making concealer is absolute essential for your makeup bag. Pat some under those eyes and cover off those dark spots before setting it with a pressed powder.
Your turn! What are you beauty bag essentials for Fall?
