Painted Face: Kick up your Neutral Look


Are you used to a natural, neutral look? Well, here are some ideas to bump up your look for fall:

On your eyes, try some of the newer caramel and camel shades out there (we love Z New York's matte shades in Central Park, Brownstone and TKTS with Central Park in the crease) and cocoa brown eye liner--Chanel's Le Crayon Kohl in Ambre.

Try a dark denim blue liner--our favorite is Styli-Style's Line & Seal in either Twilight or Navy--on the lower lashes only and smudge the line with your finger or a cotton swab, making sure to leave the color fairly intense. Complete the eyes with your favorite black mascara, we recommend Lancome's award-winning Defincils.

Finish by using a very soft coral or peach color on your cheeks--try Mirenesse Stellar Blush in Amina-- and a gold gloss--Ramy's Lip Plumping Lip Gloss in Lil' Something Something! should fit the bill--on your lips with a neutral colored lip liner
