Good morning! Welcome to Friday and not just ANY Friday. That’s right, it’s Friday the Thirteenth!
Are you superstitious about days like today? Or is it just a day like any other for you? However you’re feeling about the ol’ 13th, we’ve got something special to feature on the blog for you today. It might be good luck, or it might just be a coincidence that the Aveda YouTube channel has given us not one but two new makeup tutorial videos, and we can’t wait to show you!
You’ll likely remember that we introduced Aveda’s Fall/Winter makeup collection Birds of Paradise a couple of weeks ago. And now, after that colourful introduction, we’re able to see some of these gorgeous shades and products in action!
Now that the chillier, more fall-like weather is here – sorry to those of you who are already missing summer – it’s time to bring back the bold colours and looks that can weigh us down in the heat of the summer. For two looks that will set you up perfectly for fall events – and may take you right into the *cough* holidays *cough* – take a look at the two gorgeous new videos below:
Now, we will admit, there is a LOT that goes into both those looks. And if you’re keen to give either of them a go, the pause button is your friend! Watch, watch again, pause, go back…you get the idea. Or, if you’re a makeup application pro, maybe just a one-time watch will be all you’ll need to get the gist and then just get it done!
And, as always, sometimes just taking one or two techniques and trying them on for size can be the way to do it. Especially if you’re just getting started. The nice thing about the Aveda videos is they show you not just the colours and techniques, but also fill you in on what tools you’ll need, which ones will work best for the job at hand.
We are loving these looks – the soft, undone looking eyes plus the vibrant, bold lips are magical together. And those colours are just swoonworthy!
Enjoy the weekend, friends! Get your bold lip on if you dare, and we’ll be back on Tuesday with the final installment of our fall fashion series. See you then!
