The Softer Side of Fall

Pastels among the bold autumn shades.

Traditionally fall makeup trends are a strong contrast to the bronzy no-makeup makeup look of summer.  Quicker than the leaves falling from the trees we see bold rich earth tones in all textures replacing neutral eye colors and barely there blush.  This year we are seeing more pastel eyeshadows and blushes in the fall makeup collections than in the past.  Lise Watier’s translation of the fall color story is soft, satiny and luminous with products that will create a range of looks.

Like all of her face products, the half powder/half cream shadows in the EYEvolution Eyeshadow Quartet blend effortlessly and can build from sheer to intense.
The palette is a perfect combination of highlight, accent and contour colors that will compliment your fall fashions.  They have a satiny, semi matte finish that will brighten your complexion and make your eyes shine.

A product that is great on it’s own or layered is Lise Watier Blush Fondant Suprême.  Gemma Gygi, beauty expert at Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique suggests that for a wisp of seamless color apply it gently with your fingers.  For more intense color she uses a synthetic blush brush to apply it.
I have done my fair share of experimenting with cream and mousse blushes. For a more opaque color with a soft underglow us one under your powder blush.  These products are my go to for bridal makeup or makeup for teens. Because of the light reflective nature of mousse blushes, you can apply them above the cheeks or under the brow for a natural highlight that isn’t too shimmery.

I love the versatility of the creamy gel-like Lise Watier Intense Waterproof Eyeliner.  I can remove it from the pencil tip with a brush and apply a thin precise winged look or work it quickly with a smudger to achieve a beautifully blended long wearing smoky eye.  The soft application and 14 hour wear make it perfect for the waterline or tight lining the upper lash line.
