Fall Essentials in Make Up

Fall is the season for bold, romantic hues and a little more TLC to prep your skin for chillier days ahead. Here are some autumnal essentials to keep you looking and feeling gorgeous as summer slips away...

1. Boost Your Foundation

The end of summer doesn't mean you have to lose your glow, but with colder weather around the corner it's important to keep your skin protected against the elements. A double-duty formula with non-pore clogging emollients and antioxidants, Neutrogena's Nourishing Long Wear Liquid Make Up works to repair dry, sensitive skin while providing flawless long-lasting coverage that never feels heavy or cakey.
Tip: Always use a sponge or foundation brush, rather than your fingertips, to apply liquid foundation, as this allows for a smoother application.

2. Go For Bold
Nothing is more seductively mysterious than a smoky eye, and fall is the perfect time to upgrade your eyeshadow palette. You don't have to stick to traditional blacks & greys alone however, but can play around with rich browns and mauves that give your eyes an exotic pop. Urban Decay's Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette is perfect for creating your own blend of smoky shades and feminine highlights.
Tip: Look for eyeshadow palettes that offer convenient how-to's, such as the tutorial vids available on the Urban Decay site.

3. Berry Lips

Berries and wine are all the rage this season, putting a sultry spin on the more traditional reds. A rich, long-wearing matte lipstick that won't lose its pigment throughout the day, M.A.C.'s Babes and Balls is a gorgeous burgundy that compliments all complexions no matter the time of year. If lip balm is more your speed make sure to check out Evolution of Smooth. The strawberry sorbet is especially nice!
Tip: Line your lips before applying your lipstick, to help you fill in the lines and stay within your natural lip shape.

4. Strong Brows

Boldly defined brows have made a dramatic comeback in recent years, with a multitude of cosmetic lines boasting various pencils and gels to shape the brows. Make Up For Ever's highly pigmented eyebrow pencil offers subtle, buildable brow shading that resists smudging.
Tip: Remember to start light and darken as you go; you want the brow to look naturally dramatic, rather than drawn-on.
