Lately, I’ve been chatting quite a bit about 2013 Fall Fashion Trends. If you’ve been taking notes (and I hope you have!), three things should stand out in your mind:
1. Colbalt Blue
2. Chunky Gold Accessories
3. Bold and Bright Colour Combinations
Of course, for every fashion trend is a makeup match. And this season, there’s only one look you need to rock: A Multidimensional Mulberry Mouth. Add a dose of drama with the blackened berry look; Fall’s traditional wine hues are given a rockstar edge with a touch of vampy intrigue. “Berry- and wine-colored lips are the pout of the season for sure,” says celebrity makeup artist Sonia Kashuk. “But the look is not so Goth as it is pretty and monochromatic – and very feminine.” Finding the perfect berry shade is as easy as 1-2-3:
A mauve- or rose-colored lip is still on trend for Fall and is suited for those reluctant to try something intense.
For women with light skin, a blue-based plum will be vibrant. On darker skin, go with a brown-based lip colour.
For a more understated, office-appropriate look, choose plum and wine tones in a matte formula rather than a gloss.

I am digging these colours! I also have my eyes on this polish http://www.narscosmetics.com/the-latest/what-s-new/~/galathandeacute-e-nail-polish what do you think of this colour?
Oh, Amy, I adore it!!! Fabulous!!!
I love the lip colours! The name of lip colour I love the most is the “Black Honey”
It’s such a universally flattering colour :)
Love that the berry tones are in for Fall! They make your teeth look whiter too! I know I’ll check out Maybelline’s Color Whisper in Berry Ready on my next trip to the drugstore :)
Yes, they certainly do! And please do :)
Oooh, I hear the 90’s calling me back. :D
This was a staple makeup shade for me back then – kind of grunge rocker.
Yup. Totally agree!

Oh I am loving these colors!!! I think I may see some BARE MINERALS, Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Dare Devil in my future…lol
I think your future is looking berry bright, Judy!

oh I like this one BARE MINERALS, Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Dare Devil;
Definitely one of my faves too :)
Love these colours, but way too dark for me – they would make me look like a ghost with *BRIGHT LIPS* LOL !
Ha! Black honey is one of those shades that is universally flattering – start there!
Oooh, great colours! :)
Gorgeous colours! I love # 4 – the Absolu Rouge in Berry Noir
Go for it! It’s a gorgeous shade.
Been a creature of habit for years – always relying on the “Red” lipstick. I must say I particularly like the CLINIQUE, Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. These colors are quite stunning, packaging is beautiful too – looks like I might have to check this line out ! Thanks great review.
You’re very welcome Eva!
I love dark colors but I’m so pale, I’m afraid someone would try to stick a stake into my chest if i tried to wear them. :D Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Dare Devil is so pretty.
Hahaha you need to start with a gloss and work your way darker :)
This type of post is one of my favourites of yours i.e., when you feature a trend and products to match! Also, that picture looks like it’s straight out of a professional magazine. Just had to say this.
Aw, thank you Victoria. Just good old MS PowerPoint and an eye for collages!
I love the purple/mauve hues!! so pretty!
Such pretty colours. I wish I was able to pull them off.. I have to stick with lighter shades or I end up looking like I’m going for a “goth” look, lol.
Love the fall colors! Makes putting make up on fun!
I adore these colours!!! Oh how I love the colours of fall, but when summer comes, I love those too!
vampy intrigue yikes that is just not me. I tend to be more innocent and light.
Love the colors. I have to stop buying them though. Too many, but never came across to using them lol.
Bold and bright colours, guess this is going to get me out of my comfort zone. I love the colours but tend to use more understated one.
I never know what kind of colors to wear. I was born in the winter so I kind of pale skin. I can’t dye my hair black, because it doesn’t look right. I have green eyes and brown hair. I need something that will make my eyes stand out
