There's an easy way to add some color to your fall ensemble — vibrant shades are the big trend for eyes and lips.
When we say "fall colors," you may conjure up the warm shades of ripe pumpkins or falling leaves. And sure, we love those,but this fall, we're all about fashion. And theshades seen on contemporary runways are farfrom traditional. We're talking vibrant jewel tones of purple, blue and green brilliant ceruleanand cobalt blues, glimmering emerald greens andvivid shades of violet, eggplant and magenta.
These color trends also extend to cosmetics. And it's easy tosee them in action, with A-list actresses such as Zooey Deschaneland Emma Stone, and fashion forward models like Kate Moss andAlexa Chung seen on red carpets and magazine covers wearing thesecolorful, cutting-edge trends with stunning perfection.
Forget that usual wintry palette of grays, blacks and neutrals. For autumn eyes, it's all about vivid color.
Purple is the New Black
Purple is one of the hottest shades for fall. Switch things up and create a smoky eye using shades of purple instead of gray. Try blending eye shadow shades such as Divine Plum, Cabernet and Indigo, and finish the look with eye liner in Plum.
Feeling Blue
Blue is a great go-to hue for fall, with various vibrant shades showing up in the collections of all the big designers, including Stella McCartney, Chanel and Oscar de la Renta. For a vivid look, try an eye shadow shade such as Blue Slate. Or for a soft look, apply a deep blue eye shadow like Midnight with a slant/angle brush to line the eyes instead of your usual black liner.
Going Green
Green is a flattering shade for many eye colors and skin tones — try using a vibrant green eye shadow such as Moss with complementary neutral shades like Linen, Sand or Smoke.
The coveted color for lips is a deep, dark crimson.
Dark and Dramatic
After the flattering coral reds and pink shades that tend to be popular in spring, a dramatic, dark red lip is the coolest new color trend for fall.
Red Wine
Try using deep crimson shades of lipstick the color of red wine, such as Scarlet, Bordeaux or Earth.
High Gloss
For a softer look, try a light wash of a colored gloss, such as Raisin.
