If a bold, dark lip isn’t for you here’s one trend everyone can definitely wear this Fall: metallics. Metallics come in all different shades and look instantly richer and oh-so luxe. There are many ways to wear it so have fun and experiment.

To wear a metallic smokey eye here is a MTV Fora tutorial from MTV Canada’s Head Makeup Artist Lucky Bromhead!

Try:

  • A wash of colour on the eye lids for day wear in gold, bronze, olive, or purple. Finish with black mascara and black liner (optional) for contrast.
  • Metallic liners in deep purple, emerald green or navy are a subtle way to wear it for day. It’s a nice alternative to black and brown. For some fun at night line the eyes in gold, silver or cobalt blue!
  • I’m kind of loving metallic lipsticks right now especially in copper. It’s just such a perfect shade for Fall.

Makeup 101: How To Wear Fall’s Dark Lip

I think the ’90’s are calling me back! Do these names ring a bell? Toast of New York. Black Cherry. Black Honey. Paramount. If you’re a beauty junkie and wore lipstick in the 90’s, then you’re probably having a throwback moment to your teens. My go-to lippies were Revlon’s Toast of New York and M.A.C. Paramount. I never thought for once as a “grown up” I’d be loving a dark lip again. This time around the dark lip that seemed like a faux paux seems so modern this time around that it’s a must-do!

Most of you may run the other direction, but here are some tips on wearing the darkest hues of the season!

Do:

  • Dark lips can make you look really pale and that’s the last thing you want in the dead of winter. Give your skin some warmth by using a bronzer as your blush. Dark lips look gorgeous when paired with a bronzer.
  • This statement hue requires flawless, luminous skin. Otherwise, skin will look flat and radiant skin gives it that modern feel.
  • Dark lips look less overwhelming when you use soft shades on the eyes. I like soft golds, champagnes, and bronze.
  • Make dark lips day-time friendly by choosing sheerer textures in a gloss or stain. You can also dab the lipstick on with your finger for a stain effect.

Don’t:

  • Be afraid to try dark lips! If you choose the right shade, it can look really flattering! Have fun – makeup isn’t permanent.

Makeup 101: Crimson Lips For Fall

The end of a summer is bittersweet; the hot humidity turns into brisk winds but the leaves change to brilliant shades of fiery red, orange, and yellow. I love the fall season. Fashion becomes cozier and makeup becomes moodier. Crimson lips aren’t a seasonal trend anymore. This red hot hue is a beauty staple meaning a red lipstick is a must in your beauty stash!

How To Wear Crimson Lips:

  • To really make the lips the focus, wear barely-there shades on the eyes with just a touch of mascara.
  • Skin should be flawless so use a good coverage foundation and conceal where needed. Always set your makeup with a translucent powder.
  • To give this look some edge, contour the cheeks with a matte bronzer. Highlight the cheekbones with a shimmery – not glittery – highlighter.
  • Full brows help frame the face so don’t skip the brows! Slick brow hairs down with a wax or clear brow gel. For really unruly brows, spray some hair spray on a mascara wand.
  • For a dash of glam, line the eyes with a liquid liner and wing out. To make a statement, pair the bold lip with defined smokey eyes.
  • Make sure lips are in good shape. Exfoliate with a damp, warm cloth and move in a circular motion. Apply lip balm to moisturize and then blot with a tissue.
  • For stay-proof lips, fill the lips in with a matching red lip liner. Apply your lipstick then blot with a tissue or dust with a translucent powder with a tissue placed over your lips. Then reapply again. Don’t like lipstick? Use a gel lip stain.

How To Pick The Right Shade of Red:

Everyone can wear a red lip if you choose the right red for your skin tone. For pale skin tones, try a cool and bright cherry red. (Think Gwen Stefani). For medium yellow and olive skin tones, try a warm-toned fire-engine red. For dark skin tones, try a wine or burgundy red.
