Are you the kind of girl who can never get enough of make-up? If so, then you probably have a bathroom drawer that’s filled with all kinds of cosmetics.
First things first: If you’ve had mascara for more than a couple of months, foundation for more than a year and lip gloss or eyeshadow for going on two years, it’s time to toss that stuff out a start over. Old make-up can wreck havoc on your skin!
But before you go and buy some new make-up to wear, first check out the following fall trends. That way, you’ll know just what you’ll need to get you through the fall and winter seasons.
Super smoky eye
The smoky eye. Although it’s the kind of look that you can wear day or not, it’s best when reserved for a romantic evening or formal event. And if you want your eyes to really stand out, add a hint of silver glitter. People won’t be able to stop staring at you if you do.
A really popular lip look is iridescent lips. Basically it’s about combining a few different colors together. You can go with a “rainbow look” like this one or some gloss and a bit of gold eyeshadow.
Deep and dark lips
Some folks call lips that look like these “vampire lips”. We prefer to go with “sexy as all get out”! The darker, the better, in fact.
‘Barely there’ make-up face
If you’re actually someone who lives by the “less is more” philosophy, then you’re goin to love this trend. A lot of runway models actually sported little to no make-up for the fall line of fashion.
Happiness, creativity and enthusiasm are just some of the things that orange represents. If you put it on your lips, you can make a really big statement before saying a word.
Smoky blue eyeshadow
We already talked about creating a smoky eye. According to many make-up artists, the only thing better is one that is made with blue eyeshadow (and perhaps a bit of blue eyeliner too).
Attention to the ‘lower lids’
Another big trend this year is using eyeliner—on the lower lids only. We like it even more when it smudges, just a bit, to create this classy-grunge effect.
A light ‘made-up’ tan
The sun isn’t going to be able to give you much of a tan in the fall. But with the help of some bronzer, you can make up your own sun-kissed tan.
Plenty of mascara
Mascara is something that a woman should never stop out of the house without. And this fall season, one coat is simply not enough. Go with two or even three instead.
Sheer lip gloss
Sheer lip gloss is another thing that you can try on your lips. This is a really nice complement to the smoky eye.
Look at how fanciful this eye is. It makes you want to go play out in the snow before any ever arrives. Applying just a little bit of silver mascara can get you this kin of result.
A ‘glossy’ look
Lip gloss will make your lips look this way. And the gloss on the eyes? Vaseline. Yep. It’s that easy to look this sexy.
If you’re someone who likes to experiment with make-up and different colors, try a purple eyeliner. You might be surprised by how quickly you fall in love with it.
Typically, blush is lightly applied to the apples of the cheeks. This season? Be a bit more purposeful with it. Cheeks that look like you just walked in from the cold are actually really hot!
It’s doubtful that the classic red lip will be going anywhere any time soon. So, if it’s time to get a new tube, make sure to stock up as soon as possible.
Glittering eyeshadow is so festive. It’s the perfect way to “dress up your face” if you have a formal event coming up.
Even eyebrows have trends. This year, full ones have made a comeback. So, don’t do a lot of waxing or teasing. Just keep them well-manicured and be sure to remove any stray hairs.
If you’ve always wanted to experiment with your eyeliner, this would be the time to do it. No lines are too thin or too thick. Go crazy with it. (Really!)
A wonderful color for every eye is bronze. It’s great for work or after work.
When it comes to eyewear, a big trend right now is cat eye sunglasses. You’ll give them “double drama” with cat eyes underneath.
