Fall Beauty & Fashion Guide

Celebrity makeup artist Raychel Wade and stylist to the stars Lo VonRumpf sat down with Cliche to talk everything beauty and style for Fall 2013. From high fashion to fresh-faced looks, we’ve got you covered, and then some.

Five Fall Fashion Must-Haves for Years to Come

  • A Leopard Clutch when you’re on the go can amp up your last season look.
  • Menswear Inspired Pieces like loafers and tuxedo jackets pair perfectly with flirty accessories.
  • Comfy Flats are quintessential when you want to give your feet a break from this season’s sky-high boots.
  • Playful Prints like a paisley or polka dot scarf can dress up or down a look depending on your mood.

Quick and Easy Ways to Make High Fashion Work for You (No, Really)

  • Stick with affordable accessories: clutches, watches, scarves, belts, and shoes
  • Pair high fashion statement pieces with seasonless basics (i.e. an oxblood or leopard watch with a timeless black blazer)
  • There’s no need for a total style overhaul every season: be true to your everyday style and purchase wearable runway looks that enhance your natural look, without completely changing it

Tips for a Flawless Face

  • Keep it Clean: An understated, fresh face will never go out of style, and it’s appropriate for both the office and a night on the town, making your life a whole lot easier.
  • Focus On One Feature: Play up the eyes or the lips, but never both. Try this season’s go-to color–oxblood-for a daring red lip, while keeping the rest of your makeup minimal. Never wear TOO much of anything.
  • Stick With One Shade: Don’t be afraid to match your makeup. Try pairing a berry lip with a berry blush for a flirty, fresh-faced look.
  • Bright Eyes: Line the inner eyes with an illumination shadow to brighten and separate for youthful look.

Fall Beauty Essentials

  • Eye shadow trios like the Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trio give you the option to play around with a set of complementary colors or take your look from day to night in a snap.
  • Illumination shadows are perfect for lining the inner eye. They quickly brighten and separate for a youthful look.
  • Finishing sprays are the best-kept makeup secret both on and off the red carpet. Mary Kay’s Finishing Makeup Spray seals your look all day (or night) long for up to sixteen hours with a quick spritz on the face before heading out.
