Top 5 Fall Makeup Trends 2012

I blog, you the suggest the topic! Thanks @ZeeNTheCity for todays topic :)

Top 5 Fall Makeup Trends 2012 according to me as seen on runways, street style and what I personally like for the Fall.

1.Return of the dark lip 
Thanks for the official kick off to the dark lip for the Fall season Azealia Banks and Erica of Love and Hip Hop ATL.


2. Bold colors
We aren't quite ready to ditch color.  Keeping the bold colors (think statement piece) translate this to your makeup.... bold color on lips, cheeks or eye liner. A model for Thakoon uses a bright lip on the runway paired with a rich purple top.

3. Graphic eye liner
If you know me, you know my winged liner is classic for me.  Graphic liner can be winged eyes or different shapes that contours the eyes for a fun look.

4. Smoky eyes
Does smoky eyes ever go out of style??  Deep smoky eyes for  the cold months; lighter, more subtle smoky for day time  or warmer months


5. Clean, contoured skin
Leaving most of the dew for the Summer, the Fall calls for a satin skin finish.  Not completely matte, but nice sheen.

I'm excited about the return of the dark lip. Erica's look from the LHHATL reunion definitely inspired me to rock bold, plum lips this fall.
