Fall 2012 Trends – Makeup Must Haves Under $25

Fall is all about color and there’s no holding back when it comes to makeup this season.  The bolder – the better!


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love green!  And apparently so do th hottest designers in fashion.  This season is jam-packed with this hue.

Give your mani’s and pedi’s a shot of emerald with butter LONDON 3 Free Nail Lacquer in British Racing Green.  No matter what your skin tone may be, this palette  is versatile and flattering to all shades.  Try a soft green on the lids while adding depth to the crease with NARS Single Cream Eyeshadow Compact in Nomad)


With the season premieres of True Blood and The Vampire Diaries, and the final chapter of Twilight, it’s no surprise to be seeing red!

Make a statement with a wine colored lip like L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Gloss in Rich Plumor go bold with essie nail color polish in berry naughty – just remember to apply 2 coats.


Talk about a shot of color!  This daring and rich hue is a great alternative to plum.

Command attention with NYC Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Moody Blue or NARS Single Eyeshadow Compact in China Blue.


Nothing says Hollywood glam then glistening gold!

Let your eyes sparkle with IMAN Luxury Eyeshadow in White Gold.  LORAC 3D Liquid Lustre in Gold can be applied over eye shadow or worn alone on eyes and cheeks for luminous sparkle and shine.


This classic look transitions easily from summer to fall.

Add a sheer shimmer while looking natural with Bare Escentuals – Glimmer Eye Shadow.  Find your perfect shade like Joey New York – lipFIT Lipstick.


Caramel and cocoa… Mmm!  All that comes to mind is a hot caramel mocha latte.  I feel all warm and tingly just thinking about it.

Don’t think this combo is only good in your favorite caffeinated drink.  These colors not only play well together, they look good together too.  Try L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Balm in Caramel Comfort along with POP Beauty Lid Bronzer.


Be prepared to see a lot of metallic this season, and I’m not talking about just in clothing.  Gunmetal is an “edgier version of charcoal” according to InStyle.com.

Go rocker chic with NARS Nail Polish in Endless Night or add drama to eyes with tarte lock & roll Eyeshadow Duo in Gunmetal.
