Fall 2012 Makeup Trends | Milani Purples and Plums

I've said this plenty but again...purple is HUGE this fall. So, I think it's time for another purple fall trend post. This time though, it's all about Milani. Totally budget friendly and so, so lush.

Milani nail polishes are fabulous; so many colors and totally affordable. With these 3 colors your tips will be plummed out and perfect for fall. (left to right: Lavender Fizz, Deep Thoughts, Hipster Plum)

Purple Shock eyeshadow is a gorgeous purple with a slight pink duochrome effect. This bright color can liven up any look. Add a touch of a deeper purple, or even just mix is with a black shadow (like Milani Pitch Black) for an awesome smokey eye.

Deep lips are a fall staple. Plum Deluxe lipstick is deep-lip perfection while In A Flash Haute Flash Lipgloss adds a touch of true berry sparkle. On the sheerer side is Sheer Dark Honey Crystal Lipgloss. It's a deep blackened plum that ever-so-slightly deepens any lipcolor under it.
