This Fall, ditch all your neon lipgsticks you used in Summer and invest in a dark, vampy one. The key colours are burgundy and raspberry, both belong to the wine hue palette. Their full, rich shades have true character and depth so desired and compliant with Fall 2011 trends. Look for a creamy matte lipstick with a lustrous, smooth finish or a lipgloss for a high-shine, watery lip.

Channel your inner artist and recreate the look of Lady Gaga in Judas since a jet-black liquid is having its moment in Fall 2011. To easily reproduce the ultra graphic catwalk eyes, choose a very precise retractable eye pencil. Use it to subtly enhance or create bold lines but always making sure they are straight. Eyeliner has never been this edgy.

Luxe metallics for eyes look like liquid metals on lids reflecting light beautifully. Use them to create a sophisticated lush metallic smoky eye with a colour smudge that floats across the eye leaving a gorgeous, shimmering sheen. Look for velvety, highly pigmented shades in colours different than black: grays, purples, golds and silvers.

In Fall 2011, don’t you dare to stretch the dollar on mascara! This time eyelashes go 60’s in a bit Twiggy-inspired manner. Since this look is reminiscent of spider’s legs it is more commonly known spider lashes. Lashings and lashings of mascara create the thick, cloggy and clumpy look this dramatic trend needs.
