It’s only mid August, but because the kids are going back to school (What happened to starting after Labor Day?!), September issues have hit the stands and stores are chock-full of fall collections, I’m craving the more serious (dramatic, even) makeup looks that come along with cooler weather.
The fall runway makeup trend I’ll be wearing often come fall (If I can hold out that long), is a rich, wine-hued lip color. Oxblood-colored lipsticks were big last fall and they’re going to be hot again for fall 2013. I love the shade actress Lily Collins wore to the premiere of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones earlier this week. The only thing I’ll do differently with my makeup is to keep the eyes a little more natural. I’ll sweep a taupe shadow across my lids (from lashlines to creases) and swipe on a couple of coats of black mascara on top lashes only. It’ll make the dramatic look more wearable for everyday. If you don’t have a wine-colored lipstick in your stash, try one of these ones.
