Fall In Love.. Part II Fall Makeup Trends

Eye Shadow goes retro this fall with "Naked" Shades from Urban Decay.Browns and" Earth Tones" are definitely back..or go luxe with dark shades of blues and grays from Estee Lauder . Try "Blue Dahlia" part of the Pure Color collection.

For a sensuous shimmer,"go for the gold" with a bold,smokey gold eye,pair with a bronze or gold flecked brown liner .

New this fall,eyelashes take center stage ,and not just your everyday look. I'm seeing bold sweeping lashes in everything from wispy to fantasy,with a pop of color at the edge of the eye to give a "just off the runway" look. Some of the best (and reported to be easiest to apply) can be seen at Urban Decay. I'm loving the Minx lashes from them,and look forward to trying them. I will post pictures for you at a later time. I'm currently waiting for the Naked eyeshadows to come in at my local Sephora.This set is so popular that there is a waiting list,so I may need to pick up some shades separately in order to create a look that I want this fall.

I'm seeing some great stuff coming in from Maybelline New York, proof that color doesn't have to be expensive to get the job done. One compact that I love is "Give Me Gold" Color Plush Eyeshadow. the look can go from subtle to high impact depending on how you layer the colors. This is perfect for the smokey gold look we talked about earlier.The technique for applying this awesome shade can be viewed at

More to come....

Until next time~
