Can you believe there are only 69 days left of this year?! That basically means we are knee-deep into Fall. Which also means you have put away all of your Spring makeup by now. Well, you better press REWIND and pretend you didn't put away all of your vibrant eyeliners! Go ahead... I'll wait right here while you go retrieve them...
That's right, y'all! Fall doesn't mean you have to stick to dark, neutral tones. And how do I know this to be true, you ask? That's easy! There are NO rules when it comes to makeup! Say it 3 times and you'll never forget it!
Now, I'm not saying to paint your entire eyelid bright blue. (But that would totally be ok if you did!) Here's a breakdown of how I would incorporate bold, bright hues into your Fall Look
Go PURPLE! Purple is the PERFECT compliment to any and all cool or warm eyeshadow tones! This perfect hue has been one of my go-to tricks for years! It's perfect for every eye color, every hair color, every skin tone. Period. So when you get the Winter time blues, remember to always GO PURPLE!
Do your eyes any way you please! To take it to the next level, ditch the black eyeliner and lay it on THICK with your favorite hue of purple!
It's like the perfect pair of blue jeans for your eyes! BLUE is bold, daring, and says you like to take RISKS. You can incorporate this shade with a nude eye to take advantage of its vibrant beauty on its own, or you can take it there by pairing this color with a smokey look. With your angle brush, use a gel liner to create the line you desire. Really digging the look? Add the same color to the bottom lash line. HAVE FuN!
Pro Tip: Line your eyes with a black eyeliner first, then go over that line with a dark or bright blue eyeshadow. (My favorite is the MAKE UP FOR EVER Pure Pigment in Blue!) Black is the perfect base for BRIGHT colors!
Mean GREEN no more! Let your eyes do all of the talking with this DARING look! If there were ever a time when I ask you to heed my advice, this is the time! Listen carefully... Keep the rest of your face NEUTRAL when choosing this BIG GIRL color! Especially the lip color!! Start with a clean, sculpted eye using light and medium tones. Wing the eyeliner on top with this vivid color and line the bottom with a smokier green(Laura Mercier in Emerald, need I say more?).
What was the first lesson I preached in the beginning? Say it LOUD! THERE ARE NO RULES WHEN IT COMES TO MAKEUP! If anyone gives you any trouble(or a shady side-eye), send them MY way!
