Fall Makeup Trends That Are Actually Pretty

Fall Makeup Trends That Are Actually Pretty

While many people look at runway shows and red carpets for clothing inspiration, our eyes are always laser-focused on the beauty looks.  Here is where the trends-to-come reside: No-makeup makeup, graphic liner, contoured cheekbones – these are all past trends born from runways and red carpets that found their place in mainstream beauty (and beauty brands).

Makeup should never be boring, and on-trend looks are the perfect way to get out of any sort of slump. Here are our favorite eye, lip, and complexion trends to try out this fall.

Feathery lashes and brows 

Lashes and brows are all about enhancing what you’ve got – or faking it until you make it!  Both sets should be fluffy, soft, and slightly undone.

TRY Marc Jacobs Beauty Feather Noir Ultra-Skinny Lash Discovering Mascara ($24), Glossier Boy Brow ($16), Ramy Cosmetics Perfect Brow Wand ($28)

Red Eyeshadow

Wearing red on your lids doesn’t mean pink eye; this look is actually trending for fall.  The key is to find the right deep shade with a hint of shimmer or shine.

TRY Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette Colour-Coded Eyeshadow Palette ($52), Giorgio Armani Eye Tint ($39)

Gloss Without The Goo

Lipgloss may have been a staple in high school, but the new formulations mean you can bring back that high shine without a hint of stickiness.  Fear not, your flyaways won’t stick to your pucker with these updated glosses.

TRY Laura Mercier Lip Glace ($25), Sonia Kashuk Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss ($9)

Bright Lips, Blank Canvas

Give a bright and bold lip more drama by keeping the rest of your face clean and bare with a skin-perfecting, perfect-match foundation.

TRY Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Cream Lip Stain ($36), Kjaer Weis Lipstick ($56),  MATCHCo Foundation ($49)

Light Strobing

While glowing complexions are definitely still popular, the entire look has been toned down a bit.  Look for non-shimmery formulas to subtly highlight.

TRY Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch ($42), Becca Backlight Priming Filter ($38)

Sculpted Cheeks

Contouring? No thank you. Instead, add some face slimming definition with a light blush underneath your cheekbone for a look that is much more understated and fresh.

TRY Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow Duo ($28), NARS Blush ($30) in impassioned
