Remember that ‘No makeup makeup look’ we’ve been all raving about since last year? Well we think it’s time for you to start taking notes. Fall makeup this year is taking an absolute different tone. Makeup gurus all over YouTube are uploading their fall tutorials already, and we’re here to prep you for a follow up – you know product wise, along with your Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Let’s start with the basic, and most obvious. It’s okay to let your inner vampire craze- or your secret 90’s obsession appear this season. Dark lips have always been a favorite, and what’s not to love about a bold lip? Matching every skin tone, enhancing facial features, and also boosting up a minimal outfit-bonus! How can you not?
The Casual Red Lip
Remember that Coco Chanel red lipstick quote, “if you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack”? Well let’s just clarify that you can now wear red lipstick in any mood- and any time of the day. For next fall season, wearing red lipstick with minimal fresh makeup and smudged liner is considered the LBD of fashion.
Mesmerizing metallics have been a the glam-go to on both lips and eyelids for this season. Whether having it as lipstick or gloss, you’ll definitely find a handful of shades and brands lining all up at your nearest makeup store. Make sure you choose the right texture though, flaky lips are a no-no!
As you’d often hear, makeup has no rules; swipe on your favorite shade of lip gloss on your eyelids for some little low-key drama.
Blocky Blue Eye Shadow
Such a perfect timing to showcase the long awaited collaboration between the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and MAC cosmetics; the Chromatic collection. The blocky blue eyeshadow has been a runway favorite since spring 2016 and remains one during the fall 2017 shows, thank you Derek Lim!
