To tell you the truth, I'm not impressed - after the bright summer shades I'm feeling a bit depressed by the inevitable gloominess. But there's a light at the end of the tunnel...
To begin with, the dark shades are a must as always - this season in the shades of precious stones (emerald, amethyst, sapphire) for the smoky eye, black eyeliner, burgundy for lips... Still, there are a few things different. First of all the lines are not as sharp as previous years - especially for the smoky look. If you like countouring, then take a lok at Anna Sui - a very interesting take on eyeliner. Then - metallics. After the release of Chanel Illusion D'Ombre everybody got nuts about metallic effects, especially with green and violet. Another interesting trend is neon shades, and especially red, used on the lids - this brings some life to the season, so I like it. Pastels are also present.
Nothing new with lips - the classic red lip/black eyeliner combination is still here, burgundy and deeper shades of red and plum as well. You can choose between matte and glossy finish, but matte lips are much more edgy.

Nails are metallic, in accordance with eyes - and some of the trendiest shades are silver, chocolate brown, plum and dark green.
The autumn palette from Pantone offers some other ideas, if you're not in love with catwalk looks (I'm certainlly not). The shade of the year - Honeysuckle, is still on some models' lips, and blue is a prominent trend in the accessories section. Bamboo and Emberglow can be seen as eyeshadow shades, but in a subdued version.
I hope this post will help you navigate more easily in the sea of trends. Personally I will try the metallic lids - but perhaps with a lighter shade.

Да си кажа честно, не съм очарована. След ярките нюанси през изминалите месеци, 'смрачаването' в грима ми действа депресиращо....
Скулите са неутрални, като изненадата е само при визията 'грим без грим', при която те са подчертани с ярки нюанси като фуксия и червено.
За ноктите - металически лакове в тон с очите. Нюансите са сребристо, шоколадово кафяво, тъмно зелено и лилаво.
Надявам се този пост да ви помогне при избора на грим тази есен. Аз лично мисля пробвам металическите клепачи, но може би в по-светли нюанси.
