Unlike fall seasons of the past, beauty this fall is going to be simple and less fussy. The end effect is a natural look with more earth tones. Natural is the way to go whether it be in makeup or skincare products that are great for your skin as well as looking good will go a long way in making you feel great. Here are some quick points on Fall beauty for 2006:
Eyebrows that are over tweezed are completely out. Keep your eyebrows more natural and not overly filled. We’re not talking sasquatch here. We’re talking simple and proper maintenance without looking as if they are pencil thin.
Foundation should not appear caked on. This has always been the case but this fall the natural look means using it sparingly or even not at all. An example would be using a sheer matte foundation or tinted moisturizer for a more refined look.
Less is more this fall. Instead of overdone lashes, use one good coat of black or brown mascara.
Pink is out! Sheer red and burgundy lipsticks look fabulous on everyone. If you feel uncomfortable with going for a full red, try using a lighter shade within the range of reds.
Blush with a rosy color for a subtle sheen is great for fall. Orange is too artificial and bronze is too “summery”. That rosy color will keep the natural earth tones theme going. It’s definitely easier to maintain and will look fabulous as the weather changes.
Since fall is when fabrics such as tweed and suede are in, make a statement with dark nail polish like browns and burgundy; pink nails are just too “blah.” While the darker colors symbolize a brooding mood, they will go with everything you put on makeup wise.
Makeup for the fall doesn’t have to be a chore. This fall look your best by going natural and looking fabulous!
