10 Under $20: Dark Beauty Buys For Cold-Weather Wardrobes
The weather has started to cool down, and like the predictable happily-ever-after in your favourite Rom-com, my staple Autumn/Winter makeup palette is coming out to play. The deep maroon, red and plum colour makeup trend might seem a little tried and tested — but it's a timeless classic for a reason.
Pale skin tones work best with blue-based plum shades, while olive and darker complexions look amazing with rich wine-red colours. This season we're moving away from flat, matte colours and jumping aboard the creamy-gloss train. But don't worry if you've already invested in a velvet finish, or like that colour best, you can layer your favourite clear gloss on top. I'm a fan of Elizabeth Arden Crystal Clear Lip Gloss ($35) or Dior Addict Lip Maximiser Active Lip Gloss ($49) for a little extra plumping effect — just use your finger to pat on top so you don't transfer the pigment.
