Top 5 fall beauty trends
Not sure what to add to your makeup repertoire this fall? We have you covered. From lids and brows to lips and cheeks, we have the scoop on the hottest beauty looks for a brand new season.
Chocolate smoky eye
Dramatic eyes are back this season but with a decidedly neutral twist. We spied rich smoky eyes in brown on several fall runways and the look is both evening-ready and office-friendly. Create the chocolate brown smoky eye by layering several shades of brown on your lids for a gorgeous fall beauty look.
Try it: Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow trio in Filter ($28), which features two shades of brown and a soft ivory.
Bold lips, bare face
Bare faces with get-noticed lips were spied at Marc by Marc Jacobs and Narciso Rodriguez and we can’t get enough of this sophisticated fall makeup trend. Start by applying concealer only where you need it and follow up with a dusting of translucent powder for a look that’s polished yet natural. Add a bold lip color (think wine and rich red hues) and you’re ready for your fall closeup.
Try it: Lorac Breakthrough Performance Lipstick in Icon, a deep plum ($22).
We loved the flirty, flushed cheeks spied at Michael Kors and plan to recreate the look a whole lot this season. To get the fresh-faced, outdoorsy (or great sex) glow, opt for an easy-wearing, buildable cheek stain or tint rather than a powder or cream blush.
Try it: ULTA Cheek Stain in Tickled ($8), a lightweight, hydrating cheek stain that’s easy to apply.
Fall color eyes
Prada, Donna Karan and Dries Van Noten all gave us eyes in reds and oranges, the quintessential colors for fall. So this season, step outside your comfort zone and do something a little different with your eye makeup look. Neutrals and classic hues like lavender and green are great, but go bold with oranges and reds this fall.
Try it: Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Mediteranee, a muted gold shimmer and burnt orange ($34).
Models at Proenza Schouler and Theyskens, just to name a few, walked the fall runways with brows that stood out. Last season’s prominent arches aren’t going anywhere, so drop the tweezers and skip the next brow waxing appointment. Simply keep the look neat yet natural with the right tools and products.
Try it: Bobbi Brown Natural Brown Shaper and Hair Touch Up ($20).
