Fall Makeup Trends

A strong natural looking brow is really trending, coupled with a burgundy lip. Keep the rest of the face clean looking with neutral tones for a “no makeup” look. Brush brows straight up and set with some clear gel to really stay on point for the hottest look of the fall!

This fall another beautiful look is that of glowing skin! Heavy contouring is no longer as popular as the new “highlighting” techniques. This gives a fresher, more subtle effect! Accent your cheekbones, brow bones, the bridge of your nose, your cupids bow, inner corners of eyes, and center of chin with a luminous glow using the great highlighting products out there!

The look of beautiful glowing skin never looked better than when worn with this season’s “stained lip”. It gives a youthful, natural, fresh and dewy effect! You can wear it alone, with your favorite lip balm on top, or a high shine lip gloss which is very popular this season! There’s a wide variety of colors to match most skin tones!

As a pro makeup artist I always have to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to makeup trends. Each season we see fashion morph on the runway. Some trends have staying power and may last for several seasons, some trends are recycled with a slightly different twist, and some are totally fresh and new! As fashion evolves the makeup goes right along with it! It’s always fun for me to look ahead and see what the latest styles are in fashion and beauty and I love sharing it with my clients!

Here are some great new Fall 2016 makeup looks that are sure to get you noticed! There are many different styles to choose from, so you have a lot of options!

To make your brows look fuller and stay in place use L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper. It comes in clear, as well as two other shades for more intensity!

A really hot trend this fall is neon colors on eyes and lips! Flashback to the 80’s with this fun bright makeup, but the key to keeping it up to date and on trend is using it only as an accent!

I love the Sleek i-Divine Ultra Mattes V1 Palette Mineral Based Eye Shadow kit! It has so many bright colors to play with! Mac “Up The Amp” lipstick is a great lip color for this fun look!

The smoky eye is holding strong but this season it has a very creative edge to it. Adding glitter to the lid and a graphic liner to create geometric shapes really gives new life to this makeup staple! But beware, this is truly for the younger set! Lashes are going “mod” this season with a heavy upper and lower lid. Think Twiggy!


Well, there you have it! The theme of this season’s makeup looks are luminous, glowing skin, with a focus on lips and eyes! It’s beautifully refreshing!
