Glam for Fall
by Ria Francisco-Prieto
Philippine Daily Inquirer, October 12, 2007

I asked Lancôme's makeup artists to use their autumn palette to enhance three different beauties.

THE "NO MAKEUP makeup" look is one of my favorites. It's also one of the most reliable looks in beauty today.

Every girl should master her very own natural enhancing routine, be it curling one's lashes, painting on some blush r tinted lip gloss and adding mascara. Yes, it is that simple. Although others may require a few more steps, the reult is always a fresher, more radiant you.

I asked Lancôme's makeup artists to use their fall palette and glam up three different beauties. As much as the "no makeup makeup" look is great, it is also good to know when to turn up that oomph factor for a night out, a formal event, or just to chance one's look sometimes.

An element of surprise and sophisticated drama never hurts anyone. Besides, I find it to be the least expensive way to play dress-up.

Here are three glam fall looks and how to achieve them. Take your pick and make them your own.

"What inspired me to create this look using Lancôme's Destiny Cube, was the whimsical feel that it expresses with its palette's name "Charisma". I started by washing the entire lid with it's light violet shadow with silver flecks, and defined the creases and her lash lines with it's olive green shadow. I wanted to give her a natural flush by applying Blush Subtil #3, concentrating mainly on her cheekbones and used the same light pink shadow for highlighting the cheeks. For a polished and feminine look, i created a lovely sheer pout by moisturizing with the light pink balm, and topping it with it's deep wine gloss that comes with the palette. I finished the look by applying 2 coats of Virtuose Mascara on her lashes, to give her a lustrous, seductive look to keep the focus on the eyes." -Sabs Hernandez
