Eyeshadow colors for Fall 2009

It’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned anything about makeup. I have to say, during summer, I wear as little makeup as possible. I’m outside with the boys. I’m at swimming lessons. I’m at the playground. I sweat, and I just hate the feeling of makeup streams in all the wrong places. You know what I’m talking about, right? (Please say you do and it’s not just me!).

But with Fall right around the corner (or here… as it’s 68 degrees in Rhode Island today), it’s a whole different makeup story. I want to talk about the eyes today. I love making my eyes look dramatic. It’s all about the eyeshadow. One of my best friends is a makeup artist… and she (patiently) teaches me different makeup tricks. So what about Fall colors? What kinds of eyeshadows should we be looking at and trying out?

There are 4 colors that POP out…


As you can tell, as with the clothing right now… purples, grays and browns are HOT. Smoke up your eyes with some fun Fall shadows. I usually just buy charcoal. It’s “my” color of choice… but my friend talked me into getting some purples this season. And you know what? I love love love them! It’s all about experimenting and having some fun. As with each season comes new styles for Fall clothing, same with colors for makeup.

    I love the plum colors. I use a plum colored liner. It really seems to bring out my green eyes. It’s NOT just you! I don’t think I wore make-up all summer long. Now that I’m back to work, I have to wear it every morning (so as not to scare the children I teach 🙂

    I love experimenting with color. And you picked some good ones! I’ve been wanting to get a plum eye liner. I think that will be my next purchase! Thanks for the suggestion, Lisa.
