Beautiful Fall Looks

Fall is upon us, and we’re all looking for a fresh take on our make-up. Before you rush out and buy all the latest colors consider this. The first step to a fresh, new look for Fall is to exfoliate and moisturize! The drier air of Fall is a huge relief from muggy Summer days, but it can also dry out your skin. A daytime moisturizer with SPF provides a great start for perfect make-up.

This season experiment with some of the vivid colors available. Classic reds on lips and nails, or if you’re more adventurous, vivid teal eyes and nails! The key to freshening up your look is to try new approaches to applying your make-up. Some of us tend to apply our make-up the same way we did when were teenagers, and let’s face it, we’re not teenagers anymore! Make-up should make us look our best, regardless of our age. It is a mistake to think that piling on more foundation will “hide” fine lines and wrinkles. Instead of looking younger, it only accentuates those nagging little lines. Try a foundation primer and a light, moisturizing foundation in combination with a creaseless, cream eyeshadow to minimize the look of fine lines around your eyes. A neutral, light eyeshadow with a dramatic, colorful eyeliner can draw attention to the eye without settling into fine lines, and adds a vibrant, youthful appearance. When applying lipstick, a lip liner will eliminate feathering of the lipstick. To avoid dry, chapped lips which increase feathering, apply a base moisturizer and lip liner before applying your lipstick. Choosing a lipstick that is moisturizing will also help.

I am a firm believer that make-up shouldn’t break the bank. Some of my favorite products are purchased at drug stores and department stores and are not the most expensive brands available. It’s important to remember that the best product is the one that works the best for you, whether you paid top dollar, or frugally purchased a store brand. Always checkout the sale items and clearance priced items, as those purchases are great for experimenting, and you may find that perfect shade of red lipstick after all!
