Tips for sporting dark makeup colors
Following are just a few quick tips for mastering your new fall cosmetic routine.
Change your foundation, too.
As your summer tan begins to fade, you’ll want to select a lighter foundation to match your autumn skin tone.
Choose one feature to spotlight.
If you opt for a dark fall lip, go easy on the eyes, and vice versa.
Exfoliate your pucker.
Darker lipstick makes dryness and chapping more pronounced, so be sure to eliminate dead skin cells before applying.
Lock in lip color.
Apply concealer around your lips—or use a lipliner—to keep bold autumn lip color from smearing onto surrounding skin.
Start strong with eye color.
Use a heavier hand to apply color to the inside and center of the eyelids and allow it to dissipate as it extends outward, mimicking the falling leaves.
Don’t go too dark.
Remember to use nature as your inspiration, selecting shades of brown, gold, red and orange. Save the super-dark gray and black for the upcoming winter months!
