It’s only a few weeks away! It can’t come soon enough for me, this summer’s scorching temperatures never seem to let up. I hate feeling hot. I am looking forward to fall. I love fall clothes, fall colors, fall holidays, and of course, fall makeup. The fall makeup collections are just starting to trickle onto the counters of the makeup departments and the makeup web sites. So, what are the trends this fall? What should we be looking for when we purchase our fall makeup?
It will soon be time to put that no-makeup makeup look away, and that “I just woke up like this” sentiment and start bracing yourselves for some more serious looks. This Fall makeup is pushing the boundaries of black eye liner that is “in your face” and dark lipsticks that are “impossible to ignore”. We’ll soon find out that Peach isn’t just for Spring and Summer anymore, and we may even change the way we think of glitter !
Power Goth, Modern Gothic, Vampy Lips. Whatever you want to call it, this fall switch to a darker lipstick. Give your lips some serious strength. Try deep wines with velvety textures, plums in matte or gloss, and try going closer to black on the color spectrum. Try a black pout if you dare.
You want to look like “don’t mess with me or I’ll kick your ass!” in your modern Gothic Dark, Near-Black, and Black Lipsticks!
Lots and lots of Black Eyeliner is another trend that is dramatic, and will be really popular.
The smokey eye is still popular.
Eyeliner smudged into the crease to the brow is really dramatic! Lot’s of Black! And those glossy red lips are hot!
Mascara is spidery, Twiggy lashes
Art Show Eyes-that go outside the traditional lines
Another Trend is Fluorescent Makeup, Neon, electric makeup colors on the eyes and lips is strong and feminine!
The Glitter Bomb!
Glitter is For Grown Ups! Glitter in eyebrows, on the face, teardrops in glitter!
The New Glow look.
This look is basically a blush, tinted lip balm and mascara. Forget the 3 step shading, blushing and highlighting. Add a little shine where there is normally shine, and a pink flush where there is normally a pink flush.
Catch the Light Glossy, Wet ,Red Lip
Another Lip Trend is the Red Stained Lip
For this trend , dab on candy apple red lipstick with your fingers, or blot it off in the center with a tissue, or apply it slightly outside the corners. This is a red lip for Us-Real Women- you know, the ones that don’t own lip brushes, rarely get a blow out, and just want a little color when they go to the gym or have lunch after the gym!
The Peachy Keen Trend
Well, peach screams spring. Now let’s give the color a chance to prove how pretty it looks for the fall. It has an unexpected sophisticated side, and a romantic side.
Are You as Excited as I am for the Fall? Tell me what looks you want to try? What were your favorite? Which ones would you never attempt? I like the dark lipstick, but black? I don’t think so! And I love the eyes rimmed in black liner. Maybe a wee little bit of Neon something? And definitely, I am gonna try some Fall Peach! What about You? I’d love to hear what your thoughts are!
You Are Awesome!
