5 Tips for Fall




1. Jewel Tones

They are indeed in, ladies! Choose between vibrant hues of sapphire, amethyst and emerald to accent the eyes and play up their natural color. Avoid full-lidded eye shadow; instead, wear a colored liquid liner as a great accessory to any look.

2. Shimmery Blush

Choose a pink- or peach-tinted blush to highlight your natural glow. Be sure to pick one with a little shimmer and sparkle to liven up the face.

3. Classic Lip

Say goodbye to the summer’s shiny, glossy lip! Instead, keep it classic with a muted lipstick or tinted lip balm.

4. Bring the brows back

Full brows are in! Define the eyebrow with a pencil to add shape and structure to the face. Went a little too crazy with the tweezers? Try Ready to Wear Design A Brow to bring them back to life.

5. Accent the Apples

Brush that rosy blush on the high parts of the cheek right on and above the apples. This gives natural highlights and a rosy glow to the face.
