Hello Ladies!

Believe it or not, Summer has nearly passed us by. Fall will soon arrive, so it's time to make some changes to your makeup routine. 

I will choose to ignore the fact that red eye shadow is supposedly a big thing coming this fall, because no matter how expertly applied it is, it always reminds me of conjunctivitis. Ew.

That said, colored eye shadows are still in. The greens, oranges and purples that were bright and bold for Spring and Summer, but toned down for fall. Turn the brights of Summer to softer, deeper and more sophisticated tones. Blue eye shadow is also making a comeback (I will do a more specific how-to on blue eye shadow next time). 

My advice about trends: they only provide guidelines. If you feel blue will make you look like an old lady, take the trend and make it your own by going for blue-green, blue-grey, or just blue eyeliner. You don't have to go all or nothing with color. Use as much or as little as you feel comfortable with and find a shade that suits you!

Its also time to start toning down the bronzer a bit and bring back the blush!

Bold eyebrows are back big time, so put down those tweezers!
The pencil thin lines of the early 2000's are gone: the full, fierce dark feathered look of the nineties are back with a vengeance.You can buy eyebrow stencils to get the shape you want or just follow your brows natural shape and fill it in with brow pencil in short strokes. Full brows also make you look years younger instantly, the same way full lashes do.

I'll be back with more on blue eye shadow! Stay pretty, ladies!
