We’ve talked about fall hair and fashion trends, but what about fall makeup?
After noting some of the looks and trends from NYFW, I wanted to give you an idea of what was hot for fall moving into winter this year — and how to get it fast and fabulous.
Red lipstick, that beauty staple, is back in a big way. No matter your preference, there is a red for you, from dark brick to almost purple to nearly coral. How to choose what works best?
A quick cheat-sheet from Glamour magazine suggests:
- Coral-reds for fair skin;
- Red to a pink cranberry for medium skin;
- Deep burgundies to brick for dark skin.
Black liner, plain and simple, makes eyes stand out. Liner can simply do just that, line the lids of your eyes, but feel free to go with a cat eye or something edgier.
Some tips on making the most of your eyeliner?
Keep it light on the bottom lid (too heavy and you make your eye look smaller); and either use a waterproof liner or set it in place with a dusting of eye shadow.
The smokey eye is another look that seems to stick around for the colder seasons, and can be done in whatever shade you’re loving at the moment.
This easy tutorial from Makeup Geek shows how quickly you can create a smokey eye that will draw attention.
That look you get when you’ve just stepped inside from the brisk outdoors? That’s what you’re going for.
This is not the time for bronzer, but rather peach and rose tones. Apply to the apples of your cheeks, where you would naturally see the skin flush.
