One of my favorite "transitional fall" outfit is a cold shoulder top, whether in flowy blouse or knit sweater. In my opinion, it makes any woman of any shape look effortlessly sexy and chic. I love to pair it with black slacks and booties for work or ripped jeans and sneakers on weekends. For makeup, I am partial to plum lips, in particular my long-time love, the Tom Ford Matte in Black Dahlia. Again, the key to wearing dark shade like this is to keep the rest of your makeup minimal. Let the lips do the talking, babe!

Just like wardrobe, makeups such as mascara do require change or "rotation" from time to time depending on personal preference. Case in point, sometimes I like very natural looking lashes, other times quite dramatic. It's a woman thing. No, it's a makeup junkie thing! Pixi Beauty creator Petra even recommends "mascara-layering for a bright-eyed effect".
