What We Love…The First Look At Fall

Darker colors, bolder palettes—that’s what fall means in the beauty world. The subtle look of bare eyes and nude lips is still around, but in general, eyes, lips and cheeks require more intensity to compensate for fading tans. And this season also brings an emphasis on more natural products. If you haven’t already, you’ll start noticing terms like ‘mineral makeup’ and ‘5-free formula,’ which means a cosmetic product without five particular undesirable ingredients (like formaldehyde). It’s time to play around with your favorite shades (berry in all varieties is hot!) and give the brows some TLC, as they frame the face. But most of all, just have fun with fall!
