Beauty News: Go Dark for Fall 2012

Hi everyone,

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.

Thanks to the use of both striking and muted colors, there is a definite yet subtle shock-factor to the Fall 2012 beauty look. The contrast between the bare face and the dark lips, eyes, and brows makes for a bold and exciting statement, no matter how intense you decide to go with the colors.

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