Ahead of the trend


Fall into style with one of the season’s hot makeup trends.

Metallic colors are a necessity for the fall season. Silver and gold shadows are typically intended for a nighttime look, but there is a way to pull off the smoky, shimmering tones during the day without looking over the top.

Dark makeup colors are usually worn at night, but with a rich purple shadow trend you can make it work even when the sun is shining.

Cover your lid with a plum color and blend a shimmery gold into the crease. Be careful not to apply too much eyeliner, and make sure to brush mascara on every lash. Finish off the look with bronzer and blush, using a fan brush to cover your cheekbones.

Vamp up your daytime look for a night out by applying a heavier layer of the eyeshadow from the Glambox 9 set. Just add water to achieve a darker look.

A thicker coat of mascara and eyeliner adds drama and you are ready to go.

To create a more dewy appearance at night, try using  the Halo Highlighting Wand on the top of your nose and cheeks.
