Fall Makeup Tips

We all know that the economy stinks right now and our wallets are all getting a little bit tight. No worries I found some helpful hints on how to turn your summer makeup products into fall ones, saving you the time of shopping for new makeup and saving you money! Who doesn't love that :) Here are my favorite tips:

For Your Lips:
Don't trash your bright summer lipstick shades. Layer a darker shade with a lighter one to get pretty fall hues. Mixing brown and pinks makes rose and red and purple gives you a plum!

Want to make your lips look full and luscious?
Dabbed sparkly eye shadow in the center of your lips, the shimmer draws the light to your lips and gives the effect of fullness.

To Get Model Cheekbones:
Models always seem to have such sculpted cheeks, utilizing your bronzer can get you this look as well. Swipe your bronzer or dark powder from the summer on the hallows of your cheeks, right under the bone. This creates a shadow giving the illusion of chiseled cheekbones.

Make Your Skin Shine:Since the weather is still nice out we are not completely covering up and we still want our skin to look nice. Use a makeup primer on your legs or arms, it evens out and enhances your skin tone making you glow!

Enjoy and share any beauty tricks of your own :)
