BEAUTY BAR: Fall Into Dark Lips

Nothing says fall like an all-black outfit and dark lips. Summer was great, and we all enjoyed keeping the makeup to a minimum and perfecting our glow, but fall makeup can be just as fun! Now’s the time to get all of your berry and vamp lip colors out of storage. It’s also the perfect time to start experimenting with your makeup products. In the summer, no one wants to cake on a ton of makeup because, chances are, you’re going to sweat it all off. Fall weather is perfect for makeup experimentation because you don’t have to worry about the heat as much or summer activities, such as jumping in a pool.

This Fashionista is sporting multiple makeup trends, including contouring, dark lips and wings done by using eye shadow. Contouring defines the facial structure by creating illusions of shadows on the face and ultimately causes your face to appear slimmer. It has become extremely popular as an abundance of YouTube makeup artists have filmed tutorials on how to accomplish this trend. In the past, this may have seemed like an impossible method reserved for professional makeup artists. However, amateur makeup artists on YouTube have made the goal of perfect contouring much more achievable for the average person.

The soft cat eye look that this Fashionista is wearing was created by using eye shadow, instead of eyeliner. This technique creates a softer, more relaxed look. Some people prefer to have a bold wing by using black liquid eyeliner, but this offers up a nice alternative. Since this Fashionista has a dramatic lip, she opted for natural eyes. If you want a more laid back look, warm eye shadow colors like brown and burgundy can double as eyeliner.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: The dark lip is always a fall staple. Vamp and berry lipsticks, stains and glosses can dress up a makeup look and even an outfit. If you’re not in the mood to spend a lot of time on the rest of your makeup, a dark lip color can make you look more put together without actually putting the extra effort in. The best part? You don’t have to spend a ton of money to achieve this look! Many drugstore brands have gorgeous lip colors for a lot less. There’s no reason why anyone can’t achieve this super popular fall makeup trend!
