Deep, dark colors are back in vogue this Fall. Rich jewel tones, metallics, browns, and vampy almost-blacks feel really new after summer's brights and neons. These colors will help you transition to vibe of Autumn and Winter and they are fun to incorporate into your routine. Check out my slideshow of gorgeous fall makeup picks over on Babble and check out these 5 Instagram pics I captured to serve as inspiration.
Larger images with a description and the products used are after the jump.
1. Emerald Eyeliner
I got this shimmery emerald kohl liner at America's Beauty Show and it doesn't have a name on it. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Loaded is similar. Pick it up at Sephora. $19
2. Navy Toes
I know that sandal time is limited here in Chicago, so I'm making the most of it with these fun navy nails. Pedicure by Connie Moreno at Pin Curls. This Essie Nail Polish in Midnight Cami is available at Essie. $8
3. Deep Purple Lips
It's hard to see in this pic, but this colors is really dark and violet. I LOVE it. Be Legendary Lipstick in Plum Scene is found at Smashbox.
4. Dark Emerald Nails
This polish is Wet n Wild in Morbid but, alas, it is no longer available. Zoya Nail Polish in Ray is close. Get it at Zoya. $8
5. Oxblood Eyes
Oxblood is a great lipcolor for Fall but it also makes for some striking eyes! If you follow Parlor on Facebook, you may have seen that I misplaced my Nars Eye Duo in Bladerunner. Very upsetting especially because I have my heart set on using the brick red in that set as my darker color. Alas, I filled in with lipstick. Yep. Worked like a charm. For this look, I used:
- Flower Creme Eyeshadow in Mum's the Word, available at Walmart. $7.98
- Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in #11, found at Ulta. $5.49
- Smashbox Fade to Black Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette in Fade Out (the black with cranberry pearl shade), found at Smashbox. $42
- Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara in Black, available at Ulta. $9.99
