Parlour Magazine Fall Beauty 2008.
Well summer is over. It's time to pack away your bikinis and sandals and pull out your luxurious sweaters and favorite boots. And like fall's sumptuous fashions, slow sunsets and turning leaves inspire this season's makeup.
Skin is matte and flawless with a healthy flush from within. Use a moisturizing foundation and a cream blush to achieve a look that is radiant and hydrated, but never powdery.
The secret to the perfect fall eye is a sculpted base. Round out eyes for a romantic dreamy look or carve outer corners for a more vixenesque appearance. Whether you choose a subtle look using russet, taupe and cream or an opulent visage of chocolate, chartreuse and plum, enhance your eyes with shadow, light and texture.
This season's lips are freshly plucked, think succulent raspberries and luscious grapes of the vine. Choose velvetty matte textures, and use sparingly for a sheer stained look or layered with a gloss for a laquered finish.
Complement the ambiance of this fall season with rich, saturated, velvetty colours, and like a glass of Pinot and a crackling fire, you will be deliciously irresistable.
