Summer is the ultimate ‘less is more’ season for beauty. Whatever you put on will probably melt off throughout the unbearably hot days, so keeping to a neutral makeup routine rules. However now that the weather is cooler, I’m taking advantage of trying out some darker, deeper shades.
Whether it’s a good smoky eye you’re after, or a statement-making lip color, there are so many options (at every price point) for amazing shades this season. I am excited to try out a darker lip color, which I don’t do often. A friend raved about the Chanel Rouge Double Intensité Ultra Wear Lip Colour, calling it the best lip product she’s ever used, so I’m eager to get it in a gorgeous shade!
I have the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette, and I’m excited to use some of the darker shades for a great nighttime look. The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette looks like it has a great choice of hues for getting the perfect smoky eye.
I can’t forget about nails when I’m checking out new products – I love rocking darker colors as the weather gets chillier! I also used to love using brown eyeliner rather than black, which I think would go great with some of the darker bronze and gold eye colors this season.
