New Season, New Look! Fall Colors for Makeup in Cabo
There is an idea behind every new look, and every time we change something about ourselves it makes a statement. The question is…what kind of statement are you trying to make?
This doesn’t have to be a complicated question. Often a new look is reflective of a new stage in life, or an outer expression of an interior mood or feeling. Seasons, for example, have long been associated with different aspects of personality. Spring is a time to reflect inner growth and newfound sophistication, while summer is when you show off your sunny side. Autumn? Well, autumn is a bit more mysterious. The fall season is traditionally a time of change, a time of metamorphosis symbolized by the changing colors of leaves on trees.
Remember though, it’s not just seasonal “when” that matters, but where. What’s fashion forward for New York may be all wrong for Miami or Mexico City. Certainly, Los Cabos has its own sense of style, influenced not just by its “out there” location on the southernmost rim of the Baja California peninsula, but its long history as a playground for celebrities and trend setters. Cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo are destinations where the old rules rarely apply, and thus perfect places to show off a fresh new look, new attitude, new makeup.
So whether you’re seeking a new look for a destination occasion like a wedding or renewal of vows ceremony, or you simply want to show off a brand new you, we’ve got you covered with tips and guidelines for makeup in Cabo this fall.
New Looks for Wedding Makeup in Cabo This Fall
If there is one day in your life above all others when you want to look your absolute best, it’s your wedding day. Which is why, by the way, most women hire professional hair and makeup artists for their weddings. It’s not just a life-changing event, it’s also one that will be exhaustively photographed for posterity.
Destination Los Cabos weddings in autumn aren’t as different in terms of weather as they might be somewhere else, where the sun doesn’t shine 350 days a year. Ceremonies in Los Cabos often take place outdoors regardless of season, as do many receptions. So in terms of “makeup in Cabo”, it’s important for you or your stylist to craft a look that’s appropriate to the lighting and other conditions, meaning warm temperatures, bright sunlight and soft sea breezes.
That’s the practical side. In terms of aesthetics, there is a certain look for each season that is expressed in the fashions of your wedding party and guests, and in the event design and décor.
So what does this mean for your makeup in Cabo?
Autumn Makeup Aesthetics in Los Cabos
The fall color palette relies heavily on shades of red, brown, gold and orange; a seasonal color shift most immediately noticeable in lipstick, as you can see in the accompanying photos. The candy like coral and pink hues of summer are out. In are either darker colors like maroon or burgundy, or for a more natural look, the nude lipstick shades most appropriate to your skin tone.
Eyeliners and eyeshadows, too, see a shift in color focus. Gone are the daring purples and blues of spring and summer, replaced with more elegant and sophisticated tints of copper, bronze, burnt orange or shimmery gold. A rosy pink blush to your cheeks may be, depending upon your complexion, a seasonally appropriate accent, and of course you’ll want to use an eyebrow pencil to achieve a fuller, darker look and more arched shape. Dark reds and gold, meanwhile, are the preferred colors for nails.
Wedding looks typically grade high on the glamor scale, of course, but these same seasonal aesthetics can be translated to virtually all autumn events.
Speaking of which, anniversaries and renewal of vows ceremonies are, like weddings, extremely common in Los Cabos. The main difference for the latter is that couples may choose not to invite guests, but rather to treat the occasion as a romantic getaway, both celebration and rekindling spark. Remember, no matter how many years you’ve been married this is an opportunity to show you can still surprise each other.
You’re never too old, after all, for a fresh new look.
