Summer is official over, and autumn is here. The days are about to get shorter, cold weather is coming, and it’s time to adjust your makeup routine.
For Fall 2012, beauty is all about dark features and a pale face to create romantic, almost dangerous look. Think Lisbeth Salander from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo mixed with a dark, seductive glamour. Across the board, the skin is pale and almost ethereal looking. Add either dark reds, plums, and berry stains on the lips, go with either a bare, graphic, or smoky eye, or define your brows. In some cases, we’re seeing combinations of these details: bold brows with smoky eyes and bold brows with bright red lips.

Here are some really great products that can help you achieve this dramatic look:
