Everywhere you look there are reminders that the season is changing… and fall fashions are joining in with the reminder that its is time to think about heart-warming (and body-warming) colors. Fall fashions are immersed in COLOR! They run the gamut from shades of blue to vibrant reds and gold, deep green, warm brown and a surprise color – vivid violet (with a bit more pink than expected). You can check out the fall colors by simply Googling “Pantone fall 2016”.
To boost their “color power” this season’s makeup should also be warm and vibrant. It’s all about sultry eyes and matte lips in deep tones. Here is a short list of great fall makeup ideas.

Here are some tips for choosing the best makeup options for any outfit this fall:
1. Oranges, golds and browns are best of olive complexions
2. Shades of blue, gray and violet are best of light skin – but be cautious of yellow violets that could make your skin sallow.
3. Try matching the flecks of color in the iris of your eye for eye shadow.
4. With any given outfit, highlight only one facial feature.
5. Use colors in a print to help determine one or two makeup shades.
6. When wearing evening/formal wear, you can use a bit heavier hand when applying your makeup.
Here are some things you might not know!
1. For an instant “teeth whitener” apply a blue-based pink lip gloss – the bluish tint will reflect onto your teeth.
2. Navy eyeliner will make the whites of your eyes appear whiter and brighter.
3. Keep your makeup fresh and safe with these “expiration date” facts.
Mascara and liquid eye liner – 3 months
Foundation, lipstick, liquid blush and eye shadow – 6 months.
