Fall 2010 Makeup Trends

I'm a beauty fanatic, and if you're reading this, I'm guessing you are too. Its fall 2010 now, and that means stronger, bolder, more fierce looks are everywhere! Whether you're on the runway or running around town, don't be afraid to stand out. Fall = Glamour, and with some of the trends that are in today, you will be making a strong statement.

Dark, Thick, Brows
- brows shape the face, and this season, thicker, darker brows are in. Skip getting them threaded all the time, and instead pluck the few unsightly ones while leaving a defined, thicker shape.
- If you're doing the pin up girl look, don't color in your brows, but if you're doing a more dramatic look, color them in so they stand out against darker eyeshadow colors!

Purple Funk
- Purple is in, in, in!
- MAC's taking the lead on this one with their Venemous Villains collection (out September 21st, 2010), but regardless, purple lips are all the rage
- Make sure you use a lip liner to stop this dark shade from feathering
- Pair a deep purple lipstick with neutral eyes, highlight your cheekbones and you're ready to go!
- Remember, curl those lashes and apply multiple coats of mascara so that you don't run the risk of looking ghostly

Metal Magic
- Metallics are not just from the 60s this season. This means metallic clothes, shoes, and even makeup!
- Press on some metallic pigment on top of a black eyeshadow, smudge, and you're ready to go
- Paint your nails a fun metallic color too, and you match! May I recommend Already Famous by OPI? I've been wearing this every day and am just not ready to give it up yet!

Lips On Fire
- Red lipstick has been big since 2009, but this fall, it's being paired with neutral eyes as well as a dark smokey eye. 
- And when I say RED, I mean fire truck red. Not wine, not magenta. RED.
- Make you lips extra defined with a red lip liner, and this will stop your lipstick from feathering onto your chin
