Clear, cool skin, a burgundy liner and caramel-colored highlights: today’s Fashionista exudes everything fall in just a few key places. One of the most underappreciated elements to the perfect beauty look is fresh, even skin. Adopting a personal skincare regime is crucial to attain this look. Check out the beauty bible’s, Allure, tips on adopting your individual skincare habit. But of course, thanks to varieties of cleansers, creams and cover-ups, perfect skin is no longer imperative to the appearance of a perfect complexion.
Starting off with an opaque eye brightener is a great way to mask the morning darkened, under eye circles that result from both studious and social activities that take Fashionistas well into the nighttime. Tapping some right under your bottom lashes and up into the corners of your eyes brightens even further. Loose powders are my favorite way to even out facial discoloration and disguise blemishes. A finishing layer of bareMinerals Mineral Veil completes the fresh and clear complexion.
I love colored liners in deep fall tones, which are especially adept at enhancing different eye colors. This Fashionista’s dramatic burgundy liner is a simple but striking alternative to the usual stark black. Just a single sweeping of mascara keeps the look light and airy. It is perfect for a daytime look, while thickening the liner and pumping up the mascara allows for an easy transition into the nighttime.
I’m also obsessed with this Fashionista’s highlights. They are the perfect color and amount, embodying the seasonal colors and breaking up the monotonous deep brown. Auburn highlights are another great alternative for brunette-headed Fashionistas.
Swap out your black liner for burgundy, your thick concealers for airy powders and your iced coffee for a warm, fall drink. Ready or not, Fashionistas: fall has arrived.
