Fall Makeup Trends

Perhaps inspired by True Blood, Twilight, and all things vamp-fever, blood red 
is having a major moment. 
The easiest glam-goth way to wear wine is on nails—just apply two coats of Lancôme Vernis in
Love Polish in Rouge Reglisse to make sure it's opaque. For a more daring take, try it on your
lashes. To keep it from looking like you’ve come down with hay fever, stick to neutral shadow and
just include the dark red on the tips of your lashes; try Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara in

Try a bold shot of dark emerald on your tips like Essie's Stylenomics . For eyes, a palette of green is
versatile enough to flatter many skin tones. Try Tom Ford's Eye Shadow Quad in Sahara Haze ,
using the lighter neutrals shades like cream or pale gray on your lids, and reserving a swipe of khaki
green for your crease. 
For a high-octane smoky eye, apply Nars Matte Eyeshadow in Thunderball all around your eye,
smudge with a Q-Tip, and voila, drama. Gunmetal gray nails are back for fall and as usual Chanel hits
the right mark with Chanel Le Vernis in Vertigo.

There's a reason caramel and chocolate go so well together, and not just in your coffee or candy
bar—the colors are also meant to be together. Combined, they perfectly play off one another and are
especially good for bringing out undertones in your eyes.

True Crayola orange isn’t always the easiest makeup shade to wear, so the best way to incorporate the
hue is with orange-inflected pinks, making for a coral wash on cheeks or lips.

We're obsessed with this rich, pigmented hue. It’s a great alternative to plum for a manicure, 
and gives off an cool, downtown girl vibe. Cobalt lids are another great way to 
stand out during your night out. 

Is anything sexier than the illusion of nakedness?
