The seasons are beginning to change, which means that the bright and bold colors of summer are out - and rich, deep shades for fall are in. When it comes to eyeshadow, there's no easier way to add a pop of color to a pretty face. So what hues should you look for to herald the arrival of autumn?
The first thing you should do is put away your neon pinks and day-glo greens! Those colors are fun for a summer night by the beach, but when it's time to head into the office on a crisp fall morning, you'll want something a little more professional. Light blue, rosy pink and metallic gold are all excellent picks that'll mirror a clear fall sunset without adding too much brightness to your wardrobe.
Complement your shadow with a swipe of rich eyeliner in shades like plum, brown and navy. If you have fair skin or light eyes, stay away from black, which can be too heavy for a beautiful autumn evening.
Finally, when the day's done, don't forget to wash it all away. Nothing gets skin cleaner than Elemis Rosepetal Cleanser, a gentle way to freshen your face and clear off all your cosmetics before you hit the hay.
