Fall Makeup and Nail Looks: What to Buy Now

Tom Ford nail polish

Can you feel it? Fall is here…somewhere. Temperatures might still be creeping around the 100-degree mark, but we here at Spa Girls headquarters are already planning our fall makeup and nail looks. Here’s what we’re crushing on right now.

Mulberry Lips: L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Rose Mauve ($8.95)

Vixen red will probably always be in, but the new look for fall lips is mulberry. Equal parts vamp and drama, the deep plum or burgundy hues are just the thing you need to make a statement. Rock the look with minimal face makeup and strong brows.

Blue Eyeliner: Dior Waterproof Crayon Eyeliner Pencil ($29)

Blue eyeliner is the perfect way to add a pop of drama to your peepers for the new season. (By the way – are you noticing a fall makeup trend, here? It’s all about the drama!) Just remember – it’s got enough “wow” factor on its own, so don’t go overboard with shadow.

Multi-Toned Eyeshadow: BareMinerals Eyeshad0w 8.0 ($40)

Two-toned eyeshadow is all the rage right now and one of the easiest ways to get the look is by snagging a quality eyeshadow palette that’s stocked with multiple colors. We love the eight pure, evocative shades found in this one from BareMinerals.

Seductive Shades: Tom Ford Dominatrix and Minx Nail Polishes ($30 each)

According to Tom Ford himself (via Vogue), “These colors have a twist of the perverse to them.” Why, yes, we could see that. But they are quite beguiling, aren’t they? I’ve already planned an entire outfit around them.

Animal Print: Dior Golden Jungle Collection ($23 each)

This brand new manicure from the fashion and beauty powerhouse is a fun twist on the regular. Layered together, the gold base and khaki topcoat from Dior create an enchanting crocodile effect.
