I love this time of year!  The leaves are changing and the temperature is dropping.  Perfect to showcase looks for all those upcoming get-togethers, dinner parties and events!  My friend Christine, stylist and owner of Fifteen22 Boutique, pulled a few looks together for effortless elegance while staying casually cool.

In this season, nights are longer and start earlier, so don't be afraid to go a little bolder with your makeup.  If you're a little hesitant to hit all the makeup trends, start with one focus.  If you go with a smokey eye, pair with nude lips.  Soft eyeshadow with false lashes?  Pair that with a crimson pout for a pop of color.   These makeup tips easily compliment any of these trendy outfits to have you ready from head to toe no matter where you go this holiday season!
