Sexy Fall Makeup
This fall makeup is all about drama and sexiness with bold lips, subdued cheeks and smoldering eyes. Skin care expert and wedding makeup artist Michael Allison shares his top picks for achieving a seductive fall look. Read on to sex-ify your look.
1. Lips this season are bold and dramatic, with shades of berry and bordeaux popping up everywhere. Nars Lipstick ($24.00) in Fast Ride, a sheer mulberry color found Sephora, is the ideal hue. To really make lips pop, top lipstick with a clear gloss for both shine and definition. Cover Girl Wet Slicks lip gloss in Clear Radiance ($6.00), found in virtually any drug store, is an affordable finishing touch.

2. With such a strong lip, cheeks this season are a little more subdued. To avoid overpowering and looking clownish rather than sexy, just add natural flush to the apples. Try using a peach pink blush, like Korres Blush ($22.00) in 18 Peach from Sephora.

3. Eyes this season are elegant and sexy with neutral shades of browns and gold. Try using L’Oreal Hip High Intensity Pigments Concentrated Shadow Duo in Saucy ($7.99), found at drugstores everywhere. One side is a deep metallic bronze and the other a rich shimmery brown. Use separately or together to achieve for a smokey effect. For super smoldering eyes, line lids with a rich liner with a velvet matte finish, like Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Liner in Black ($22.00), found at Blue Mercury Somerset.
