FASHION MAGAZINE #BEAUTYPANEL: 3 REFRESHING WAYS TO WEAR BRIGHT MAKEUP FOR FALL
There is no denying it. You can’t turn back the hands of time.
Fall is upon us.
You’ve heard it from me and a thousand other bloggers in the internets. As I’ve mentioned here, while fall is the harbinger of arctic wind and frozen tundra come January, it also is the bearer of good news when it comes to all things lovely in fashion come September. As you can see, there’s always a silver lining to fall. Especially in the world of fashion and beauty.
As Fashion Magazine sums it nicely: “Fall is upon us and there’s no more denying it. But thanks to Fall 2016 beauty trends, our makeup doesn’t have to reflect our gloomy moods. Fendi, Topshop and Emporio Armani are all proof that bright colourful makeup is totally in this season. Don’t worry; we’re not saying you should boycott your dark lipsticks anytime soon. But in case you were looking for a way to brighten up your day, here are three refreshing ways to wear bright makeup for fall, courtesy of our very own Beauty Panel.”

“Since I am still in denial that fall is really here, I am all for sporting bright make-up in autumn. As the daylight gets shorter and the weather gets colder, there is no better antidote than a glowing tanned skin, a sleek cat eye and bright lips! All these make up trends and reminiscent of warm summer days!”
“I would avoid bright eye make-up (this is not the 80’s after all!) but a subtle cat-eye is the perfect summer to fall transition alternative. So is bronzed and slight sun-kissed cheeks! But ultimately, it’s still all about the bright lips to keep you feeling warm, inside and out!
My current fave is the STILA Cosmetics Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick (see the deeper pink above) in AMALFI!”
PRODUCTS USED FOR REFRESHING WAYS TO WEAR BRIGHT MAKEUP FOR FALL
As you can see from all the products I’ve used, a major part of these is all about skincare and not just make-up. I truly believe that great make-up starts with great skin. Of course, that’s not the case 100% of the time. Take it from me and my constant life long war (I’m not winning so far, ugh! Not even close…) against acne. That is why I have been more careful and diligent with skincare, especially when the weather transitions from summer to fall.
As I chase great skin like I would run after the Eurostar train pulling out from London to Paris (True story! I thought it would be a brilliant idea to look for the city’s best Fish and Chips while waiting to board our train ride to the City of Lights! NOT.), the struggle is real and the quest for the perfect products that would jive with me continues on.
But at the moment, here’s what I’ve been using. For a breakdown of products used in this post: ARBONNE Facial Oil, KORRES Black Pine Moisturizer, REVERSA Radiance Cream with SPF 30, Arbonne Sheer Glow Highlighter, Maison Jacynthe Facial Mist, Joe Fresh Volumizing Mascara, Gosh Cosmetics GIANT PRO LINER (BLACKER THAN BLACK), QUO Cosmetics Face Palette, Pretend Tan, Estee Lauder Foundation, The Estee Edit Barely There Lip Liner in Nude and Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Amalfi.
