Jeune Skin Care: Ask the Experts
Q. What's in for fall eye makeup?
A. This season, you will notice much more intense fall colors for 2009. This season focuses on bold color and dramatic looks that will make you stand out in a crowd.
Eye shadows seem to be the focus this fall with dark greens, browns and earthy tones with rich color. You'll see an emphasis on smoky, heavy eye makeup that can be made sultry with shades of gray and black kohls.
How can I create a sultry eye without using so much makeup?
Begin with light gray or shimmery silver at the corner of the eye, swept over the lid. Then line the eye with navy eyeliner, sweeping it up at the corners. Using a slight upward stroke of the liner makes the eyes open and lashes appear longer. For this softer look, add a dab of fuchsia or red to the lips to balance the soft eye.
How can I get away with a darker, more dramatic set of peepers?
Use more charcoal eye shadow - either swept up from the outer lash line to the crease, or brushed through the crease of the eyes. It is important to keep the lips as simple as possible, though - stick with neutrals. A soft pink or glossy nude will soften the deep grays on the lids.
A perfect blend of colors in one little palette can be found in Jane Iredale's new eye shadow trio, Silver Lining, available at Jeune Skin Care. It has three rich shades of gray to achieve a day or evening look.
Complete the look with an indigo colored eye liner, such as Jane Iredale's Midnight Blue Pencil. It will brighten the whites of eyes, adding a sophisticated touch. If you want to really dazzle the crowd, dab a touch of Jane Iredale's Hazelnut Pure Gloss to the lips, and you are set for the workplace, or a night out!
