Fall equinox is here and with it a dramatic shift in light and color.
Fall is the excuse/reason for wearing higher intensity/more dramatic makeup.
Please refer to this article, Fall. Color In Transition. to better visualize what fall makeup color means.
As to looks, here are some to feed your inspiration.
I have assembled a video playlist for a high contour eye look.
It is 6 videos showing each step of the complete makeup look and highlighting the eye makeup.
This playlist is a great example of how to wear dramatic fall makeup.
There is also another video for a more natural fall makeup further down the page.
Below this first video playlist are suggested fall color trend sets to easily get a coordinated color story for fall.
You may use the techniques in these video and replace the colors shown with your new colors.
Based on the color trend report for fall 2017, here are three Makeup Gourmet curated color stories.
They are all available here.
Each set is offered with a 25% reduction in price.
Eye shadow quintets are also available exclusive of the full color story set with the same 25% price reduction.
I find these collections very exciting. I hope you do to.
Fall makeup is my favorite makeup
A word about trend colors
With each season comes a fashion color dictate. This dictate comes from a council that agrees upon colors for each season years in advance.
It allows time for designers, manufacturers, and retailers to plan ahead and be on the same ‘fashion page’.
Colors of the season may seem arbitrary, however they are a well thought out design to keep fashion moving forward.
For those who enjoy not only wearing season appropriate makeup and wardrobe and want to wear this season’s color palette, it is good to know the palette. This video shares a colorful example of fall/winter 2017 colors.
This fall makeup video is an excerpt from my Makeup Gourmet TV show.
I prefer to share videos when it comes to showing how to do makeup
as makeup is highly visual, both applied and in the application.
Here is my most recent episode on Makeup Gourmet Live.
I share this as it asks the question: ‘What is fall color?’
I urge you venture into some new colors and fall forward into this season of transition.
