Six Sexy, Sultry Makeup Trends for Fall 2012

Aww yes! It’s fall and I am all gobsmacked over the fabulous beauty trends coming over the wire. There were so many to choose from, but keeping you fabulous women in mind I chose these six trends.

Cobalt Blu


Blue is great but cobalt gives it pizzazz! And I do mean PIZZAZZ!! Want to give your face a shock, add some cobalt liner to the bottom lash line or a cobalt shadow to your lid and smoke it out with a black or navy blue. And if you really want to go the distance, paint those lovely lashes with cobalt mascara!

Golden Child


Be Oscar ready with this golden trend usually relegated to the days of summer. We just couldn’t get enough of gold and her cousins copper and bronze. Whether it is as a cream shadow, a loose pigment or an eyeliner, this fall, mimic the changing tones of the trees and live life like it’s golden.

Smut–Smoky Brown


I don’t care what anyone says, being smutty is sexy and smoky brown eyes is just as fab as black smoky, I would venture to say that it is even classier. This look you can war during the day without looking overdone. To make the brown smoky on dark skin add black eyeshadow or eyeliner to the lid near the lash line. Blend and smear mid way up the lid. Add loads of mascara. Also use the black liner to line the lower lash water line. Et voîla, magic!

Emerald Isle


The rumor around town is that everyone thinks that smoky eyes means dark slinky black eyes but in actuality, “smoky” is a technique not a color. So try this fabulous technique with hunter green and give your beauty regimen a new and sexy twist.
