    make up tips for fall seasonFall season has always been associated with fashion. Fall and fashion go hand in hand. When someone mentions fall people automatically think about colors like brown, red and also orange because during this season the leaves have these colors. So do no restrict these colors just for your dresses. You can these colors for your make-up also. But you also can try many other bold colors like shocking red or even blue. Here are a few tips that will help you apply the right make-up in the right shade. Considering fall season can also have some rains so the first thing you should do is buy some waterproof products.

    For fall season always keep your make up very natural and almost nude. No heavy make-up please. Natural make up is the trendiest thing ever. When a person looks at you, he shouldn’t even have a hint that you have applied make-up. But if you have blemishes and dark spots, it might be difficult to stick to this rule because then you will have to use foundation to hide your flaws.

    For foundation in cases like these, use a powder foundation and if its cream take a lighter shade. So it will look almost natural and you can hide all your pimples and flaws.

    Look glossy and pinky. To get that baby glow on your face use the right blush that will suit your skin tone. And when applying a blush see to it that you apply it on the apple of your cheeks. That looks very cute and your cheeks will look shiny and glossy. It will also add a touch of feminity. A light pink or even brown color looks very pretty. Also there are many shades of pink available.

    For a very rocking party during the nights, it is always best to use bold colors. Light make-up rule will not work for occasions like these. Highlight any one feature. For example: You can highlight your lips by applying gloss over your lipstick. Or else you can highlight your eyes by applying dark and thick eyeliner. But do not highlight every feature because that will look too loud.

    When writing about fashion, people mostly talk about dresses and gowns. A pretty cocktail dress or a prom dress can or will look awesomely stunning only if you have applied the right make-up. A make-up perfectly done, not too much and not too simple is the best way to look flawless. A little of too much can spoil your night since you’ll end up looking like a clown.

    Skins also are in different types. Normal, oily and dry are the commonly known ones. Even make-up is skin sensitive. You do want to look like a celebrity for the night, but don’t want your skin to spoil sport on the remaining days. A bad choice of make-up will leave your skin spoiled and never-like-before. With a few tips and suggestions, one can be a pro in wearing the right make-up and also keep your skin healthy.

    Before doing any kind of make-up, get your skin tested to find out what type of skin you have.

    If you have a dry skin, use products that are liquid best. Liquidized products have moisturizers in them keeping your skin moisturized needful enough. Any kind of matte products will dry your skin even more. A moisturizer spray on your face will keep your skin hydrated and protected from the heavy make-up that’s going to follow

    For oily skin, matte-finished products are the best. It keeps your skin oil free and the make-up will stay for long. Oil-free products also give a glossy look. Every product be it a moisturizer or a gloss, water-based products are the best for a women’s skin.

    Advertisements are not the right source of inspiration to pick the right make-up. Personal recommendations and experiences are the best. Listen to your instincts or rather facts.

    For dark skinned people, you can use color like brown or burgundy for eye-make-up. Soft pink or shiny blue also looks good.

    For lip gloss, too much shine doesn’t look good. So if it is way too glossy, press a tissue and reduce the gloss effect immediately.

    Before walking out of your home do look at yourself in detail, so you know what’s lacking and what’s too much.

    This is a message to all plus size women. That it does not matter if you are not a zerona. Women with zero figure look good only on runways. The most important point that matter is the way you feel. I do not believe in starvation either.

    Who has not yet tried a cocktail dress thinking that they are not available in their size and that they may not look good on overweight women? If this is what you think then I am sorry to disappoint you as there are cocktail dresses available for plus size women and are available in all shapes and sizes and in various colors.

    Listen up ladies this is summer and cocktail dresses are the most versatile dresses ever to be designed especially for these kinds of sultry months. So get yourself a cocktail dress and let your hair down at the party.

    Here are a few guidelines that will help you shop for a cocktail dress: -

    Dresses For Everyone: – There is always a dress for everyone, remember even the fashion designers got to eat and more than half the population is overweight and if there are no dresses designed for plus size women these designers will get skinny just like their models.

    Firstly it’s important that you recognize your body shape and I will guide what looks good on what kind of shape: -

    • The best bet would be an A-line type dress as this suits all body types and is especially designed for women with bigger hips and thighs. These dresses are narrower at the top and they flare at the bottom giving a slim look to the wearer.
    • Empire and princess dresses are the best to hide your tummies, if you have bigger tummies then your first option should be empire waist as it concentrates on the waist camouflaging your tummy. The vertical panels of a princess dress is perfect for women with bigger tummies.

    Suggestion: – Do not purchase a smaller size thinking that you may loose weight, because you may loose weight but by that time party will be over and your dress will be out of fashion for the next years party….so by a dress your size and remember to buy it as per your body shape.

    Check Your Fit: – A good fitting dress can work wonders, never by a dress that fit tight or is loose always buy your perfect size. Remember the most important fashion fundamentals that ‘showcase your best part and camouflage your worst’. In case of women who have heavy waist should try dresses that fits the waist comfortably and then flows downwards hiding your heavy waist.

    Remember it’s a crime to wear dresses that cling to your waist as it will reveal more than you want to hide as this will only reveal to what you are trying to hide.

    Accessories: – It is always better to wear matching and trendy jewelry and do not over accessorize. Make a complementing hair style and make up with cocktail dress.

    Follow these guidelines as they will help you opt for a better cocktail dress and enter the party in style.
