I tend to hold on to summer as long as I can.
Long evenings sitting outside, wearing flowy dresses and nibbling watermelon are just my idea of a good time, so I get nostalgic whenever fall comes around.

But with the morning chills, the turning leaves and my beach holiday over, even I adjusted to the thought that fall is truly here and started focussing on all the good things that come with it.
One of them being new makeup trends.
So if you are curious to know what next season will bring, keep reading.
1. Vampy lips
Now let´s get the obvious out of the way first. Dark lips have always been a fall/winter signature look and this season isn´t any different. Except that the lips are very, very dark this time, at least if you try to incorporate the full-on runway look.
Apart from the dark berry, red lips are here to see us through the grey and darkness.

My take on it:
I do love my berry lips, but I will probably stick to a more toned down version of this trend, just like I did last year.
As far as red lips go, it will come to no surprise that I will gladly keep on wearing them.

2. Graphic black liner
Taking on from the graphic and smudged liners that were on trend throughout summer nothing much has changed here. Again, if you ant to wear this trend full-on, you have to be quite brave and hopefully not working in a very conservative work place…

A picture is coming in my next post, if you are curious to see how I interpret it.
Which trend are you most excited about?
And do you tend to change your makeup according to season or keep the same stuff all year long?
