Makeup Colore Trends for Fall 2008

With the smoky eye look and the dark red pout going strong, Fall 2008 women's makeup
trends are still capturing some of the classic looks of the '20s and '30s. This season also
calls for a fresh spin on the gypsy and bohemian look, a few splashes of color with a
glamorous touch that will make an impact on a dark Fall day.

Whether you choose to sport bright blue eyeshadow or super-thick eyebrows this season,
here are some simple ways to update your look for Fall 2008:

Fall 2008 Women's Makeup Trend:

Bronze Eyeshadow
Fall and Winter 2008 call for a warmer, richer look, which can easily be achieved with a touch
of bronze. Mix up some of the bronzes and golds leftover from summer to highlight the upper lids,
and combine with black eyeliner and mascara for a chic and glamorous look. This look was spotted
on the runways of Oscar de La Renta and Nina Ricci at New York Fashion Week, and is easily
enhanced with dark blush and super-thick eyebrows.

Enhanced Eyebrows
The days of super-skinny eyebrows with a creative arch are subsiding, so be prepared to thicken
and darken those brows to catch the season's latest trend. Eyebrow enhancing pencils and powders
need to make their way to your makeup cabinet, and you'll need to groom them with a fine brush for
maximum impact. If you're not blessed with a natural arch, consider having a professional wax or
tweezing session to get this look just right.

Burgundy Lips
Carrying forward the glamorous '30s look and combining it with a touch of goth, dark lips are back
this season in an array of colors. Choose hints of deep burgundy, black, purple and maroon to add
a mysterious twist to any outfit. This is a great color for almost any skin type, and can be balanced
with nude eyes and light blush.

Blue Eyeshadow
Blue eyeshadow made a brief appearance in pastel shades for Spring 2008, and lives on this Fall in
true '80s spirit. Blue eyeshadow paired with dark black eyeliner and mascara is ideal for a night on
the town, and needs to be bold and bright enough to become the focal point of your look. This trend
was spotted on the runways of Dior and Proenza Schouler at New York Fashion Week, and is a fun
and flexible trend for any day (or night) of adventurous makeup.

Dark Gray Smoky Eyes
The darker the better when it comes to the smoky eye look this season, so hold off on the subtle gray
shadow in favor of near-black colors and accents. This is a bold and mysterious look for all skin types,
and is best reserved for after-hours events and special occasions where you want to make a lasting
impression. Perfect this look by outlining the eyes in dark shadow, and then creating a layered effect
of gray shadows and metallics that can be blended for a dramatic look.

Baby Pink Blush
Save the pastel pink blush from Spring and carry it forward to your Fall look; soft pink cheeks add an
innocent twist to nude eyes and lips, and work well for a daytime look that demands a lighter makeup
palette. Choose a shade that matches your natural 'glow' after a workout so that it works as a cheekbone
enhancer and adds just a subtle touch of color. This look was spotted on the runways of Michael Kors
and Narciso Rodriguez at New York Fashion Week.

Great tips.

Eyeshadow is not something I wear a lot of and blues bring me to my wedding in the 80's LOL, black eyeliner makes me look paler than I am and a panda on top, I have to stick to greys but I love those who can pull off that smoky look it's lovely.

Be careful of the red lipsticks to get the right shade and if you have teeth at are not as while as you'd like the red will make them look more off white.
