As summer turns to autumn, eyes are getting smoky and dusty with metallics and deep gem-tone shades and with layers of lashes and defined brows.
Jewel toned eye shadow is one of the hottest beauty trends this season that will make heads turn. Although it’s best suited at night, it can also be worn during the day if applied minimally. This polished look opens the eyes and lights up the face and is the perfect makeup match for dark or neutral clothes.
It is best to pick colors that can be found on jewelry, such as blues, purples and greens. You can also achieve this look by mixing and matching different shades of bold colors. It’s all about having fun and playing with shades that bring out your features in the best possible way.
Hayden Panettiere is a perfect example of a girl who isn’t afraid of a little color. The actress paired her vivid orange-red dress with purple shadow which lined her lower lids. The best way to apply is to smudge eyeshadow on the eyelids from the corners to the crease and towards the arches of the eyebrows. Also, you can apply color to the lower lash line with colored eyeliner or eyeshadow.
To add bombshell to any look, try out the newest beauty trend – a juicy crimson colored pout. One beauty who is known for this bold look is January Jones who sported it at the Golden Globes.
Red lips are a great way to add drama to an otherwise natural look. They’re also perfect if you are looking to take a daytime look into nighttime. And don’t be scared if you have never tried red lips before; you can always start with a sheer lip shade.
For a look like January’s, fill in lips with a matte red pencil to bond the gloss to the mouth, keep it from bleeding, and give it some depth. Next, gently buff the penciled-in lips with a cotton swab to leave a sheer stain behind, and carefully brush a richly pigmented red lip gloss on top.
