Earlier last week I was chatting with my aunt (who is one of my makeup inspirations) and she asked me what I thought the big trends would be this fall. I thought it was a great topic, so here are my picks.
Bold brows have been in for some time now and, they aren’t going anywhere this fall. Big is still in. I find the easiest and fastest way to fill mine in are a pencil (like the Hourglass Arch or the Anastasia Brow Wiz), but I am also a huge fan of the MUFE Aqua Brow which is more of a liquid/gel. Powders are a great option of you are going for a softer look.
All about the matte skin this fall. I feel like more-matte always comes back in style around this time of year, but this fall it seems especially prevalent. Almost all the big foundation players (YSL, Laura Mercier, Chanel) have come out with matte foundations recently. I am a long time lover of Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+, but I also enjoy the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish if you want something with a lighter texture.
Metallics are here in a big way this fall. Shadows in bright and glistening metallic shades are hitting the shelves big time (my favorite release of this kind being the NARS Dual Intensity Shadows but also check out the Ardency Inn Modster Pigments). More than just metallic, plum metallics will be big on the eyes (and they are a bit fun and unexpected without being too colorful).
Contouring is still a big trend. Put down your bronzer and pick up your contour this fall. This trend is in full swing with contour palettes coming out in droves (Smashbox and Anastasia have joined the party recently in powder, for cream look to Becca).
What do you guys think? Any big trends you see coming our way this fall?
