Fall In Love With Color

The sheer, neutral palette of summer has faded away, and an array of bold, luxurious makeup shades is quickly emerging. "While this season's statement-making color palette is rich and full of texture, the shades are still very wearable. But you must have a confident attitude that says, 'I know what I am doing," reports MAC senior artist Romero Jennings. That said, here's how to work these new hues into your look.
