fall makeup for the ages

As planet fashion begins to orbit around dark palettes, exaggerated volumes, opulent layered fabrics, and retrofits, makeup experiences a revolution of its own. This Fall put down the auto bronzer and pastel tones and start channeling sophisticated beauty with deep red lips and black lined lids. Of course, no single look is right for all readers. That is why Fashionlines is breaking down the topography of makeup into age specific zones.

20's luminosity

Shimmer is the key word for this group. Just don’t hesitate to emphasize your youth. Use pink and peach toned glosses during the day, but opt for something with a little more pizzazz for the after hours. Christian Dior’s couture-inspired Beauty Mail palette, complete with Bronzer and Lip Gloss is everything you need for a fresh look glowing with radiance. The silver logo-embossed envelope palette also comes with a bronzer brush and mirror; making the must-have item perfect for touch ups on the go.

People prefer subdued colors because they have fool proof applications. But timid pigments lack impact. This season go overboard and play up your eyes with iridescent purples, intense blues and extreme greens. Think big, act bold. The secret to a flawless application when working with concentrated shades is to start off with little product and build gradually. Inspired by Yves Saint Laurent's "Mondrian Collection" created in 1965, YSL’s new Ombres Quadrilumeres collection provides everything you need for a deep impact. Each palette is composed of four shades: a soft pearly shade to illuminate, two deep tones to structure and line, and one to boost and intensify the look.

40s kiss me now, more and again

Red is to makeup what black is to fashion - timeless, smoldering and irresistible. Now that crimson is back from Hollywood archives with a vengeance, wear all its variations a lá red, vermillion, ruby, burgundy and cherry with abandon. Just make sure to go light on the eye makeup, as the principal tenet of the beauty bible mandates one killer blow at a time. Sisley’s Hydrating Long-Lasting lipsticks in vibrant hues infused with a conditioning formula look perfect and protect kissable pouts all day long.

50's lash back

If your lashes are not as thick, black and abundant as before, use mascara religiously. New and innovative formulas can do any trick in the book, from elongating to volumizing. Remember: there is nothing so alluring as a lingering, seductive glance from a beautiful pair of baby blues. The latest tool of the trade for captivating lashes is Shu Uemura’s revolutionary Precise Mascara. The gel-based formula coats each lash, layer by layer, without clumping. Volume is buildable and adjustable, for the unique Pin-Point and Two-Way Brush pulls lashes upward from the root and builds volume from root to tip with precision application.

60's flawless execution

Foundation is crucial to hiding imperfections and balancing skin tone—for seamless perfection, the product of your choice must be able to do both. The new breed of foundations on the market today rejuvenate, hydrate, protect, plump up fine lines, slow down aging and give coverage . Now even the legendary anti-aging properties of Crème de La Mer are available in a light foundation formula. This miracle product camouflages and reduces skin flaws without a greasy residue. Now that is flawless.

Remember to feel and be beautiful at every turn in life. Like the saying goes, “Those who look for beauty, find it.”
