THE SMOKEY EYE
WHY WE LOVE IT>> It’s proven itself to be a classically sexy eye look year after year.
TAKE IT FROM SUMMER TO FALL>> Fall is all about going darker. Instead of just lining the top, take your line the bottom part of your eyelid as well. The key is to go thicker!
LOOKS GREAT WITH>> One Shoulder Sequin Dress
WHY WE LOVE IT>> It’s refreshing! It also takes less effort in the morning and allows us to show off our true natural beauty.
TAKE IT FROM SUMMER TO FALL>> Reach for nude lip gloss (or plain lip balm), go for warm tonal shades of eyeshadow (think bronze, gold, cream and pink), try a dark brown mascara instead of black and finish with a lightly rosy cheek.
LOOKS GREAT WITH>> Sleeveless Ruched Jumpsuit
DARK GLAMOUR RED
WHY WE LOVE IT>> One thing is for certain, there is a shade of red for every girl. It’s timeless, glamorous and instantly transforms a cocktail dress.
TAKE IT FROM SUMMER TO FALL>> Try an in between red. One that fits perfectly between your blood orange summer red and your sultry dark one. Go matte for a subtle day pop and glossy for a striking evening look.
THE ROSY CHEEK
WHY WE LOVE IT>> It adds color to your face. If there’s one thing you should never live without, it’s blush! Especially on cold late-fall days when it feels like the sun is but a distant memory.
TAKE IT FROM SUMMER TO FALL>> Stick with your spring/summer shades all the way through. Put the focus at the top of cheekbones for a more youthful look. Done and done!
LOOKS GREAT WITH>> Sequin & Seed Bead Tank Dress
