BEAUTY BAR: Shadow Play

What is dark, rich and sexy—and one of my favorite fall beauty trends? You may think of lipstick, but not this time. Now that fall is upon us, it is totally acceptable to incorporate bold, deep colors into your beauty routine. I think every girl has rocked the dark lipstick trend a time or two. It is definitely a statement and can be tough. Whether it just doesn’t seem to look right on you or is too much work, I have a solution for you beauties! Use smoldering rainbow tones on your eyes instead of lips.

I can’t even believe how perfect this beauty’s colored smokey eye is. Playing with colors and adding some smoky to amplify the pop of color is the way to go. Seen in New York and Paris Fashion weeks are eye shadows in tones of purple and blue. Finding the right tone for your skin and personality is the key.

Another popular trend this fall being rocked is bronze and copper eye shadows. We have all seen metallics before, but these tones really warm up the face and work perfectly when paired with purples and plums. Make sure your smoldering eye is the focal point by pairing it with a softer lip color. Her dark and sleek clothing made her artistic makeup pop. Don’t overdo it with color.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this Fashionista’s look, you will need a bold eye shadow to create the pop of color. I suggest Satellite Dreams, Plum Dressing or Atlantic Blue by MAC depending on the look you want. For the metallic touch, Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Amorous Alloy is the perfect texture. To perfect her brows and frame the bold eye masterpiece, she used Brow Box by Urban Decay.
