Fall Beauty Inspiration

fallbeautyinspiration

Although I have always been interested in beauty and make up and its ability to transform us into different people as well as express ourselves in a very personal way, I almost always do my makeup in the same way on a day to day basis. I know. Boring. As fall approaches and summer’s lazy days gradually speed up as vacations end and people go back to work and school, it always feels like a new beginning. A chance to start fresh and reinvent my personal style. Although I know what works for me (earthy tones for my eyes, thick black lashes, flushed cheeks and a rosey, stained mouth) I feel that there is no better time to experiment with makeup then in the fall when the weather gets cooler and one actually feels like putting makeup on their faces (no one likes cakey, melting foundation or running mascara). After perusing through a few of my favorite magazines (Harper’s Bazaar, Elle Canada, Nylon, Vogue) and clicking through photos of the European and American Fall 2015 couture collections and some of the latest award shows, I was inspired by some of the makeup looks. Although I will never be avante garde in my cosmetic choices, bold lipstick hues such as tangerine, merlot, ruby and coral and vivid eyeliners and shadows have me inspired to step out of my classic, prim and proper box. Below are a few looks that I intend to incorporate into my makeup routine.
