Beauty Alert- 5 TOP TIPS about Fall MAKEUP

I got through my post-vacation blues by studying new fashion, hairstyle and makeup trends! Do you want to see the best 5 makeup trends that work from the runways in real life? Every season it’s fun to review and renew your look. The easiest and cheapest way to update your style is to make some changes in the way you use makeup. I was lucky because all the new makeup I needed was given to me as a present at the ifb conference by bareMinerals and I only had to learn how I could utilize it to it’s full potential following what suits my face from the new fall makeup trends.


1. Do not overdo color!

Fact number one is the Classic rule of makeup- Do not overdo color!  If you do a dark smokey eye, keep your lip colour softer. If you go for the dark glamour of a burgundy lip, that is soooo trendy this fall, do a neutral eye using soft earthy tones.

2. Forget lipgloss and use lipstick!

A palette of deep plums, berries, and burgundies is the best sophisticated option for Fall glamour. “At Nina Ricci, it was the lips that did the talking with McGrath creating a beautifully deep crimson on fresh faced models. It’s a look that’s surprisingly easy to wear for all skin tones. It’s just a question of finding the right red for you.” Guardian

3. Use eyeliner to create graphic eyes

It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of black cat eyes eyeliner   but I always do the same flicky shape and so it’s time for change. ” Terry Barber, MAC’s director of artistry, coined the term ‘Arti-tech’ for this trend of new shapes for eyeliner. Weird and wonderful lines were drawn on the eyes at Aquascutum, Erdem and Moschino to name just three. They may look a little daunting at first but a bit of practice and we’ll all be top of the class at eyeliner control in no time. Our tip from teacher Terry? Apply the eyeliner and then re-shape by removing with cotton wool and eye makeup remover. It’s easier than building up line after line.” according to Guardian.

4. Round Long Nails


For Nail Polish this season you have three options. Shimmering nudes see Chanel , Metallic in all imaginable shades and Bordeaux or Green. But what has changed is that nails are longer and filed in to a round shape.


 5. Go bareMinerals Blend Eyeshadows

I fell in love with the colors of the new bareMinerals Eyeshadow Palettes, the moment I opened my goodie bag from the ifb conference at the hotel. As much as I like loose eyeshadows and pigments I’ve come to appreciate pressed powders because I don’t experience a lot fall out. My favorite is the travel friendly palette of eight shades which I gave as a present to my daughter and she has created some amazing shades by blending in the colors. The natural mineral textures blend seamlessly over skin, and as each shade is totally pure there’s no risk of irritating her delicate eye area.
