Did any of you wake up to crisp fall weather this morning? Only me? Well, it is glorious.
But, the weather is supposed to be back up to tee shirts in the next few days so I won’t be breaking out all the cable knits quite yet. Instead, I’ve been switching out my spring/summer makeup with a few fun fall hues that I can rock even if it’s still melting outside.
I stopped in Sally Beauty for the first time (how did I NOT KNOW you didn’t need a cosmetologist license to shop there? I thought all low prices were because you needed to be a professional or a distributor – nope!) and had way too much fun picking out things from their New Neutral color story. Here are a few easy ways to add fall to your look when the weather isn’t cooperating:
1. Go for a dark, bold lip. Lose the corals and bubblegum pinks this season and stock up on the wine and berry tones. Bonus: Look for something with blue undertones (red-violets) and it’ll make your teeth look whiter! I picked up Palladio Pop Shine Lip Balm in Get Real and love how hydrating it is.
2. Add some layers, to your nails that is. Go for dark neutrals in olives, greys, and taupes in your polish choice for a color that goes with everything but pleads to be worn with chunky knits while sipping hot chocolate. I grabbed China Glaze in Recycle for under $10 at Sally Beauty (and it was buy one get one free!) from their recommended fall tones and have been loving it.
3. Contour with color. Add in some fall tones to your crease with an eye shadow palette for the season. Dip your toes in with golds and olives or go bolder with navy and deep purples. Palladio Silk Eyeshadow Palette in Rendez-Vous makes getting the look easy because they show you which color to apply to your lids, your crease, and beneath your brow as a highlighter.
