Flash Forward: Hot Makeup Trends for the Fall

September is just around the corner. With kids heading back to school and summer winding down, we are looking forward to the fabulous fall fashions and trends that will transition in as summer comes to an end. At Makeup for Your Day we absolutely love the summer-to-fall transition. The colors get richer and deeper – we can’t wait to get our hands on this season’s shades!

Plum Lips

Coral be gone! It’s time for the rich, deep plums to take over. Plum lips can be bold like red lips, yet they are dark, mysterious, sexy and feminine. One of the must-haves this fall is a great plum lipstick!

Blue Eyes
Blue doesn’t really fit into the deep, dark, smouldering color palette that some might imagine with fall – but we are seeing blue in the forecast for this season. Whether you keep it toned down with blue accents, or you decide to make a statement with royal blue lids, be sure to keep your other makeup to a minimum to avoid looking overdone.  

Browns and Beiges

It can’t be fall without those lovely browns and beiges. These shades can looks so natural and beautiful. They are great for subtle accepts and depth, and they can also look stunning when these shades are “played up” for a bolder, but still neutral look. 
Crisp Red Nails

With nail art becoming so popular, it is rare to find all fingers crisp, clean and the same color! Red nails are making a comeback. For fall, fingers will be reaching for the red nail polish to rock a regular mani once again.

MYD Shares some Great Glosses

After last week’s post on Lime Crime’s velvet, matte lip gloss (if you missed it, check it out here) – we decided we wanted to share more glosses in a variety of great formulas and colors. 

Bite Beauty Cinnamon Lip Plumping Oil

This unique gloss pairs the hydrating benefits of Argan Oil with the antioxidant power of resveratrol. This, with the subtle tingle and plumping effects make this gloss an incredible multi-tasker.
Makeup For Ever Aqua Rouge
This is an incredible product because it is both a lip gloss and a lip stain. The purpose behind this gloss was to create bold color with eye-catching shine without the heavy, sticky formula. As if that wasn’t enough, this gloss doesn’t smudge, transfer or fade!
NARS Satin Lip Pencil
With the right formula, lip pencils can be amazing products. A cross between a lip stick and a lip pencil, this product glides on easily with soothing nutrients and Vitamin E. This creamy, long-wear pencil is a must-have!
Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Stick
This lip stick comes in the most incredible shades and its formula contains hyaluronic acid which provides time-release moisture. This lipstick looks great, moisturizes and will plump your lips. 
Givenchy Le Rouge
We adore the texture of this lipstick. It is a creamy texture that dries semi-matte which looks great in the bold shades it is available in. Not to mention that the the leather element on the lipstick cap – makes this lipstick so chic!
Yves St. Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine
These vibrant lipsticks have great lasting power and a beautiful luminous shine with a super-smooth application. This formula will protect your lips from free radicals and seal in the moisture.

Spotlight On: LimeCrime Velvetines Lip Gloss

Today we wanted to put a spotlight on Lime Crime’s Velvetine Lip Gloss. This gloss goes on glossy and then dries matte with a “touch-proof finish.” They come in two colors (seen below) on the left is Suede Berry, and Red Velvet is on the right.

These are great, affordable glosses if you are looking for bold, matte lips. Be sure to exfoliate and moisturize your lips well before using this gloss. Applying a matte formula to dry or cracked lips will only emphasize the dryness.
