Although I don’t like to admit it, but I think Fall is my second favorite Season. I’ve always thought of myself as a Summer baby, but who can resist Fall! It’s boots season, time to rotate our closet, as well as our skin and makeup routines. Just because it’s Fall it doesn’t mean we have to stick with Fall type colors, such as drabby browns and other rusty oranges. This Fall Season, update your makeup shades with these cool, sexy colors.
Shadows of Emerald Hue
Green metallic green eye shadow is great doing a smoky eye, using as eyeliner or adding a pop of color to your lids.
Try this look #1: First line your eyes with black eyeliner like Revlon ColorStay Eye pencil in Blackest Black. Next, use one of the suggest emerald shadow to line your upper lash line. Finish off your look by coating your lashes with your favorite mascara.
Look #2: Swipe NARS Iceland Duo (the greenish shade) on your upper lash line to your crease. Use an emerald eye shadow on the outer corner of the eye, (“outer v”) such as Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Bonne Étoile (#3 on the image). Lastly line your eyes with your favorite eyeliner and finish of with a couple coats of mascara.

Infused with a tad of burgundy and a hint of dark chocolate, plum lipsticks are elegant in a sultry way.
Try this Look: Plum Lipstick deserves to be the sharp, strong center of attention. Apply this rich shade alone or with a lip liner, which keeps it from bleeding out the edges. Keep eyes simple with just eyeliner and mascara.
Turquoise are In
There is something about Turqoise eyeliners. They make brown eyes pop, blue eyes bright and just a great all around color alternative to black or dark eyeliners.
Try this Look: Turquoise Liner makes a statement on it’s own. Try lining your upper lash line with a thick bold winged eyeliner or lining your lower inner lash line with this gorgeous color. My personal everyday favorite is #2 Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Abbey Road. Since this is such a bold color, you can complete your eyes with a couple coats of mascara and done.

This rich hue is beautiful when smudge along the upper lash line or use as to create a purple smokey eye.
Try this Look: Use one of these recommended shades to create a thick line across your lid from lash line to crease and blend the edges. Next, finish off eyes with a couple coats of mascara and pair with a super glossy lip like NARS gloss in Greek Holiday. These shades of purples look great on all skin tones and brightens up eye colors from light to dark.
These metallic colors are meant to look rich and luxurious on all skin tones.
Try this Look: Swipe on a single color like #5 alone all over the lid or mix with #1 or #2 (applying to the crease of the upper lid) for a more dramatic look. Next smudge on a rich black or navy blue eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line, as well as on the bottom inner waterline. Apply a couple coasts of mascara and finish of with a nude lip to complete this gorgeous look.
