Get the Best of Fall This Summer

Summer may have just begun, but I be thinking about fall makeup trends!
 I do love corals, greens, and bronzes, however, my heart lies with a dark and mysterious face!
Fall is right up my alley!
I've found a few trends which are forward-thinking, but absolutely wearable right now!  Love it!
Three of the biggest looks for fall 2012 are:


Geometric Eyeliner-  This fall is all about a strong liner statement.  Lanvin had a bold graphic cat-eye, while Altuzarra had a very sculptural look going on.  This look could adapt to summer by simply changing the colour!  Instead of inky black, go for violet, or an emerald green!  Pretty!

 Wine Coloured Lips-  Shades of wine were all over the runways.  At Bottega Venetta, the lip look was a deep merlot, worn with a taupe eye.  Gucci had a cleaner face with a more burgundy shade of lippy.  To make this work in July, just rub your ring finger on a dark lipstick bullet, then press the colour on your lips for a stained look.  Sexy, but not too heavy!


Flushed Cheeks-  The goal for this cheek look is to seem "chapped" from the wind or the sun.  Issa went with a feverish pink, while Rodarte had the feel of a left-over summer tan.  How do you not love a strong cheek?  A swipe of shimmery peachy-bronze on the lower part of the cheekbone is  perfect at the beach, or in the city.

What makeup look do you rock all summer?  Which trends are you anxious for in the fall?
