You’ve got your oversize knits on standby and your knee-high boots on set to march, but what about your cosmetics case? There are plenty of ah-mazing makeup looks trending for fall right now, from blushed up cheeks to dramatic eye makeup and beyond. Here’s a sneak peek at the face paint you’ll be playing with when the seasons start to change.
The September issues we cooed over yesterday aren’t the only ones smitten with the 60′s. It seems the hottest fall 2014 makeup trends are equally hip to the look, offering up Gucci F/W ’14 doe eye look as evidence. Think top and bottom lashes lush with mascara and even double falsies to create that sexy Bardot Bambi look. Paired with a nude lip to accentuate your fluttery eye fringe, this look plays mod and modern all at the same time.
Whether you’re faking them with brow pencil or blessed with a big bushy set, big eyebrows continue to be a bold statement for fall 2014. So keep your tweezers tucked in the drawer and invest in a good clear brow setting gel to keep your brows bold and all business.
Lip color loses definition for autumn in favor of a softer, smokier look. The runways of Giorgio Armani and Prada each played up this look by favoring diffused color and eschewing lip liner to create a “kissed off” look that’ll have you reaching for your blotting papers.
Contouring will continue it’s reign but in a much softer, less-Kardashian style, favoring toned down beiges and neutrals to gently sculpt and highlight features in a natural way.
And keep that blue eyeliner and shadow on hand, as Spring’s flattering cobalts and a more fall appropriate navy are perfect hues to highlight your peepers and still look sleek and decidedly grown up. Check the runways of Giles, Anna Sui and Temperley London for your cues.
