Fall Makeup Trends 2016

Happy Fall Y’all!  Fall, as you know, is absolutely my favorite time of year!! There’s football, the impending hoodie weather, pumpkin spice everything, boots and best of all, new makeup trends.  So what better way to celebrate the first day of Fall than to share with you the trends I’m loving.


  • Heavy charcoal liner-  Think 90’s grunge.  I love the fact that heavy charcoal-lined eyes doesn’t have to be precise or perfect.  To get the look, line your eyes with a black khol pencil liner or gel, then smudge it out with black eyeshadow to darken it into a smoked out look.  This will also soften any sharpness from the pencil.  You can over line the upper lash line, or the bottom lash/waterline or both. Have fun with it!  MAC Khol Power Eye Pencil and Anastasia ‘Jet’ Waterproof Gel liner are my favorite two liners for these types of looks.


  • Graphic liner-  This is a very popular look on the runway this season but I probably wouldn’t recommend it for daily wear.  This would be a fun artistic look for a night out on the town.  Try reworking traditional liner into graphic modern lines.  Examples: Try winging out your cat eye further than you normally would, or by adding a second tail to the wing, or you could even bring the cat eye up into the crease creating a cut crease. Felt tip liquid liners are best for these looks such as Kat Von D Tattoo Liner or NYX Felt Tip Liner.  The Anastasia ‘Jet’ Waterproof Gel would work for these looks as well.

Quick Tip Tuesday: DIY Metallic Lipstick

Hello beauties, I’m sorry I’ve been absent for such a long time.  August and September have been unbelievably busy and today is the first day I am able to sit down to share a blog post with you, even if it just for a quick tip.

To create your own metallic lipstick, simply add a metallic eyeshadow to vaseline or clear lip gloss and apply to lips.


Sidenote:  For a matte look apply the shadow straight to your lips using your finger or brush and lightly dab vaseline or clear gloss on top and blot, then apply another layer of shadow.  Repeat until you get the desired color consistency.

This is a fun way to play with different colors without spending a lot of money on extra lip products.
