"fall" in love with this season's best makeup trends.

Fall has got to be my favourite season. there's just something about the chill in the air, the pumpkin-spiced everything, and the sweater/knee-boot combo that feels so comforting. And of course the change in makeup! Summer is a time of bright pink lips and bronzer, so when fall rolls around I love to experiment with new products and darker hues.

Here are my 3 favourite fall makeup trends you should try!

1] metallic eye

To achieve this look, apply a wash of eyeshadow over the entire eyelid in a hue like soft silver, champagne, olive green, bronze or plum.

LD Picks: urban decay eyeshadow in "sin" $18 / L'oreal HIP studio secrets metallic shadow duo in "shocked" $9

2] bright eyeliner

Bright or coloured eyeliner can be tricky to pull off, so what i like to do is apply my normal black or brown eyeliner, and then apply a thin line of the coloured eyeliner right above it.

LD Picks: MAC fluidline gel liner in "waveline" $19 / Almay intense i-color eyeliner in "purple amethyst" $10

3] deep plum/burgundy mouth

This one is my fave! Pick a hue as deep and dark as you can handle, and bonus points if it's a matte finish [PRO TIP: if you can't find a matte shade you love, take a lip liner and colour your entire lip with it to achieve a matte lip colour]

LD Picks: Covergirl lip perfection lipstick in "Entwined" $9 /MAC lipliner in "Vino" $19
