Want to spruce up your makeup look this season? Well, it’s easy to enhance pretty facial features and turn back the clock by applying shades of the fall-friendly and universally flattering fruit color on the eyes, lips, and cheeks. Whether you need to brighten eyes or enliven skin, there are beauty staples that will get the job done. We’ve compiled a list of five berry-hued makeup products so that you can find the one that fits you best.
Volumize lashes with cranberry mascara.
A multi-tonal shade of mascara (like cranberry’s pinkish-red) adds more depth than one dimensional black, resulting in thicker-, fuller-looking lashes. To boost the benefit: Hold the mascara brush against the base of lashes for 15 seconds (this helps prop up hair at the root), then wiggle from side side as you move up toward the tips. Try: L’Oréal Paris Voluminous in Deep Burgundy (Buy from Target, $8.99)
‘Lift’ droopy lids with blackberry eye shadow.
Applying the deep violet shade onto eyelids from the lash line up to just below the brow bone forms a shadow that helps loose, saggy lid skin visually recede. Even better? Selecting a shadow that has just a slight shimmer gives eyelids an extra boost. That’s because the reflective particles further counteract droopiness. Try: ULTA Beauty Collection Eyeshadow Single in Blackberry Shimmer (Buy from Ulta, $9)
Whiten teeth with boysenberry lip gloss.
Since yellow lies opposite of purple on the color wheel, the rich purple pigments in a boysenberry-hued gloss cancel out any yellow tinges, so teeth look instantly whiter. What’s more, the gloss smooths over any aging lip lines, while bouncing light onto the pout, optically plumping it for a voluminous appearance, stat! Try: Haus Labs by Lady Gaga Le Riot Lip Gloss in Scream (Buy from Amazon, $6.07)
Enliven skin with raspberry blush.
The subtle rosy tones in the berry-hued blush add a natural-looking flush for age-defying radiance. Simply dust onto the apples of cheeks with a fluffy brush and blend up toward the temples. Bonus: It pulls focus up to slim the face. Try: L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Satin Blush with Camellia Oil in Berry (Buy from Walgreens, $13.99)
Brighten eyes with mulberry liner.
Unlike black eyeliner, which is so dark that it can make eyes look small and tired, the lighter shade of a plum-toned liner more subtly accentuates eyes while still popping against the whites, so eyes appear wide open. Tip: Use an angled brush to smudge the liner along the upper lash line. This creates the illusion of youthful, lifted eyes. Try: Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Eggplant (Buy from Walmart, $9.09)
