By Butterboom Writers  /  August 31, 2011

Believe it or not, autumn is on its way already and of course it’s not just your wardrobe you’ll have to update for the season. Luckily, international make-up artist Kay Montano is on hand for to give some tips on how to switch up your look for the upcoming season.

Montano’s biggest tip is to focus on the eyes this fall. For a warmer take on the typically strong looks we see on the catwalk, she advises refreshing smokey eyes with some colour instead, by layering the rich plum and soft khaki hues of Le Métier de Beauté’s City Girl Kaleidoscope palette. Make your eyes pop even more with By Terry’s Ligne Blackstar Violet Excess eyeliner and Mascara in Terrybly Purple Success – finishing things off with a glossy slick of Chantecaille’s Lip Chics in one of fall’s new berry shades, Violetter.

Meanwhile, if you fancy amping up the drama with cool bold colours that will have you smouldering your way through both day and night, Montano suggests making your lips just as vivid as your eyes with the likes of Laura Mercier’s Luscious Jade Eye Palette and Fusion Beauty’s Lip Fusion Colour Shines in Crave and XL. Just remember, strong colour magnifies any imperfections in your complexion so keep things as flawless as possible with Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Anti Ageing Complex Tinted Treatment as a base, and use Laura Mercier’s Loose Setting Powder to give a truly polished finish.
