Fall is advancing upon us once again, and that means cool nights in front of the fire and sultry makeup colors to excite us about the new season. The fall 2008 makeup colors boast a number of mauve, pink and plum shades, which help to brighten our faces when we are lacking in the bronzer or self-tanning department. Here’s a look at just some of the new makeup available for fall 2008:
1. BOBBI BROWN MAUVE FACE PALETTE
Bobbi is famous for her user-friendly face palettes and this Mauve Face Palette is no exception. This mauve themed collection is the perfect shout out to fall and has shadows, glosses and a blush that will help you welcome the season of trick or treat and turkey and dressing!
2. ELIZABETH ARDEN COLOR INTRIGUE EYESHADOW DUOS
Elizabeth Arden’s Eyeshadow Duos come in a variety of beautiful fall colors. Pink Clover is a beautiful and highly wearable shadow duo for the cooler months ahead. Perfect for every eye color, you can wear these colors alone or layered for a customized look. Six other duos are also available, so be sure to see them all at the counter or on the website.
3. E.L.F. PLUMPING LIP GLAZE
A dual sided gloss with plumping color on one end and a clear plumper on the other, e.l.f.’s Plumping Lip Glaze is a must-have for your fall and winter makeup collection. You can afford several shades of this easily portable gloss, as it’s only a dollar! I love the new Mauve Berry for fall.
4. COVERGIRL EYE ENHANCERS
CoverGirl Eye Enhancers are versatile and can be worn sheer or layered for an intense color explosion. Use a wet eye shadow applicator if you’re looking for dense color. This product is also great as eye liner – apply with a small liner brush over cream pencil in similar shade. I love the Purple Pop shadow.
5. NARS BLUSH
Dolce Vita is a new NARS Blush shade that will give you the perfect rosy glow for the fall and winter months. Francois Nars says, “Products should enhance a woman’s beauty in a really natural way.” I couldn’t agree more.
6. ESTEE LAUDER CRÈME CARAMEL SHIMMERING POWDER
Gold and caramel unite to give Crème Caramel Shimmering Powder its glorious ability to light up your face. Used on cheekbones, décolleté or shoulders, you’ll have heads turning to check out your gorgeous glow.
7. TARTE VITAMIN-INFUSED LIPSTICK
This vitamin-infused lipstick will heal your dry lips and leave them soft and kissable! Bikram is a sheer and creamy pink hue that glides on easily and lasts forever. BORBA's nutraceutical blend, available in the unique formula, has acai extract, full of antioxidants to fight off those evil free radicals!
With these intense fall shades, remember to always use a light hand when applying makeup. One thing you’ll notice makeup artists doing is shaking or wiping off excess color before applying it to the face. This gives a smoother, more seamless look to your makeup and lets your real beauty shine through. Even with vivid colors, less is always more when it comes to cosmetics.
Try some of these glorious new makeup shades for your fall look and wow your friends and family! Why not invite friends over and do mini makeup applications on one another, then wash off all the makeup and have everyone apply a mask for a mini facial? Bonding with friends over new makeup is always fun, and every one will pick up new application techniques and tricks. Fall 2008 is a great time to test out some new makeup shades, so why not get an early start and try a few right now?
