Well Fighting Knights, fall is here. Though it might not be noticeable by the hot sunny weather, the Starbucks menu definitely gives everyone a hint: who doesn’t love a good pumpkin spice latte? A bigger hint though is how females in particular switch up their looks, especially with their makeup.
According to sophomore Jasmine Ravenell, it’s hard to change up one’s look for the upcoming season with clothing because it’s so hot in South Florida. Here are some other simple options as to how ladies can get ready for fall.
First thing first, it’s time to get rid of the pinks and reds and move to darker shades like burgundy and browns for the lips.
“Don’t be afraid of wearing burgundy lipstick, it goes perfect with every fall outfit,” said Ravenell.
As for foundation, make sure to aim for a warmer look and then tone it up with darker blushes. Most importantly though, work on contouring, because now is the time to put it to use.
“Fall is very dramatic,” said Barbara Calixte, sophomore. “Now is the time to contour and highlight your face the most. You also really want to learn how to bring out your eyes.”
Focusing on making the eyes shimmer and glisten will give off a sexy look, whether its day or night.
“I use darker eye shadows as well as darker lipstick during the fall,” said sophomore Danielle Jaron. “One of my favorite lipsticks to use in the fall time is called ‘Smoked Purple’ by MAC.”
Darker colors are best for the fall, but it’s important to still remain natural.
The goal is to lean towards a deeper, natural look, and a good way to do so is by making use of dark eye shadow.
Jaron also suggested “Amber Lights” by MAC, which is a dark copper color. Copper is a great shade because it adds a nice shimmer tone, which is perfect for the fall.
Remember that fall offers a lot of options to change up makeup patterns so make use of these helpful suggestions and see what works for you. Happy Fall!
