How to Update Your Makeup for Fall
If you were wearing: White eye shadow or liner Switch it up to: Silver shadows and liner, à la Donna Karan. This is such a subtle change, but as I learned from Vogue’s September issue, metallics are everywhere for the upcoming season—even on sneakers. From left: NARS Shimmer Eye Shadow in Euphrate ($25); wet n wild Perfect Pair Eye Wand in Black-Slate ($3.99); Urban Decay Moondust Eye Shadow in Moonspoon ($20)
If you were wearing: Shimmery bronzer Switch it up to: Glittery brown lip color. This warm hue still works for fall, you just have to shift it from your cheeks to your lips. See Rodarte’s chic take (love that sparkly beret!). Clockwise from top left: Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Hermetic ($26.77); YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain in Brun Glace ($35); wet n wild Mega Slicks lip gloss in Bronze Berry ($1.99); Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick in Magnetism ($12.50)
If you were wearing: Blue eye shadow Switch it up to: Green eye shadow. Like the transition from white to silver eye makeup, this is a small change that still manages to feel really fresh. I especially loved this look paired with red lips at Anna Sui. Clockwise from top left: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Waterproof Cream Color in Emerald Green ($23 at Sephora); Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner in Green ($20); Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow in Metallic Emerald ($32)
If you were wearing: Statement liner Switch it up to: Statement brows. Cat-eye and other statement liner designs are still relevant, but this is a nice alternative for those days you don’t feel like messing with heavy eye makeup. Or even when you do, like the Nicole Miller model pictured below.

For me, both beauty and fashion need to be accessible and not intimidating. I love a great deal and a good DIY beauty treatment. I pride myself on trying new trends, being open minded and getting a great treatment without breaking the bank. In the name of beauty I will try anything once.
