Sparkling beige eye shadow is
“universally flattering,” says
makeup artist Dick Page. Taupe
powder in the crease adds depth.

The New Classics
Lively colors replace the usual autumn shades—
but look just as polished. By Meirav Devash
photographed by michael thompson
good thriller uses the element of
surprise to keep us on the edge of
our seats. And this season, it looks
as if makeup artists have stolen
a page from Tom Clancy’s handbook, taking the established fall palette
(charcoal eyes, burgundy lips) and giving it
a twist with colors like teal, tangerine, and
champagne. “It’s time to get away from the
fall clichés,” says makeup artist Dick Page.
“The key is to apply unpredictable shades
with refinement and precision.”
Another revelation: Unlike the usual
somber fall tones, “these colors are playful,” says makeup artist Chrisanne Davis.
“They’re happy, they bring warmth to the
face, and they’re easy for any woman to
pull off.” What a pleasant surprise.
Teal Liner
Teal is the new black—liner, that
is. Page likes to trace it along
the upper and lower lashes and
give it a slight tick at the end.

Bringing champagne to your
lips needn’t involve popping
a cork. Here, Page toned down
the natural lip color with
beige lipstick, then slicked on
a champagne-hued gloss.
“The warm sheen makes lips
look fresh,” Davis says.

Rose and
Gold Shadows
Page calls the combination
of rose and gold powders a
“harmonious union.” He
illuminates the brow bone with
gold shadow and works
deep rose-violet shadow into
the lashes with a brush,
blending well. “The overall
effect is sophisticated
but restrained,” he says.

Tangerine Lips
“Women freak out at the thought
of orange lip color,” Page says.
“This is a gentle segue into the
shade.” A tangerine gloss works
on all skin tones—just choose
a sheer formula so that your
lips show through, Davis says.

Slate Shadow
Rather than charcoal-rimmed
eyes, which “can get trashy,”
Page tempers black liner and
mascara with a muted blue-gray
shadow swept on the eyelids
and under the bottom lashes.
“The look is cool but not
at all rock and roll,” he says.
