Bold Fall Makeup: How We Did It

Every year, tons of makeup trends flood the runways and begin to appear on the faces of models and celebrities everywhere. Some of these – metallic nail colors, glowing skin – are perfect for anyone, while other styles seem more suited for a Katy Perry music video. We decided to look at two of our favorite bold makeup trends and see if we could make them wearable for everyone. Keep reading to see what we came up with…

 

 

 


This season, cobalt eye liner is sweeping lids everywhere.  In order to avoid looking like an 80’s movie star, blue eye makeup should be used with caution. However, when done properly, sapphire shades can really make the eyes pop. Rather than go for the over-the-top blue winged eyeliner on the runways, we decided to tone it down a notch.

How we did it: First, we applied a silvery shadow to soften the look of the blue eyeliner (we chose CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in “Platina”). After dusting a little bit on the lids, we carefully applied a stroke of e.l.f. Liquid Eyeliner in Midnight (only a $1!). Finish off with a few sweeps of mascara and you’re done! The cobalt will peek out from behind your lashes for an interesting twist on regular liner.

 


Big designers like YSL and Gucci have been slathering black-cherry colored lipsticks on their models as of late. The darker crimson shade is an interesting switch from the candy apple reds from previous seasons and provides what seems like a natural transition into fall. However, this rich hue can be very intimidating.  We decided to take it down a notch.

How we did it:

Rather than go for the deepest burgundy, we opted for a darker red that had a hint of warmth to it. We chose “Spiced Cider” from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche collection. Very lightly, we applied a few dabs of the color, starting at the outer corners of the lips. Once we were satisfied with the shade, we grabbed e.l.f. Mineral Lip Gloss in Au Naturale. This time we applied it slowly from the center of our lip, outward.
