Bold Berry Lips
The biggest, most important makeup trend this fall is dark lips—a perfect complement to a rich, plum-colored velvet blazer. A warm, deep pink or purple lip is the perfect way to brighten up your look as the weather turns dark and chilly. We love this deep plum, berry shade by Lipstick Queen Seven Deadly Sins in Vanity from Bloomingdale’s (4% cash back). If you want to make a bigger statement, go VERY dark with a more blackened, deep grape colored lip. This Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Blackmail from Sephora (8% cash back) hits the nail on the head. Remember, when you’re sporting a dramatic lip it’s best to keep the rest of your look minimal.
This season it’s all about pushing boundaries, so pair your dark lip with black eyeliner for a dramatic evening look. Stay safe with a classic flick for a cat-eye look, or a soft smudge; or go for a dark, piercing stare by outlining your waterlines in a true black shade like this Highliner Gel Eyeliner by Marc Jacobs Beauty available at Sephora (8% cash back).
Ruby lips are trending this fall, too. It’s a great look to wear throughout your holiday party engagements this fall and on through winter. The bold lip makes a statement without additional makeup needed, so keep the rest of your makeup neutral. This Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl from Sephora (8% cash back) is one of our favorites.
Healthy-looking, dewy skin is always in style. And with minimal makeup it looks healthy and chic. The easiest way to achieve this is by developing a good cleansing and moisturizing regimen. You need to hydrate your skin in order to fake this pretty dewy look all day long—this is especially important as the air gets chillier and dryer. Next, bring color to your cheeks with a blush like this e.l.f. Blush Palette from Target (1% cash back) onto the apples of your cheeks. Then apply a highlighter for an added glow. With a highlighter like the Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter from Macy’s (4% cash back) use a brush or your fingers to blend into the tops of your cheekbones, along the brow bone and down the center of your nose. This adds a soft, healthy sheen that’s totally ethereal on all skin tones.
We love this look. Everyone can wear it and it’s so easy and quick to achieve. Play with peach tones with an eye shadow like this Beauty is Life Shiny Eye Shadow from Barneys New York (4% cash back). Pair it with a nude lip for day, or a deep cherry shade to add some drama for evening.
This one might be the most surprising fall beauty trends we found—yes, we’re talking glitter for grown-ups! Although glitter might get a bad rap (or stay reserved for New Year’s Eve celebrations and the like), it’s been making a big comeback this season. A classy way to wear the trend is to create a simple line across your upper eyelids. A glitter eyeliner like this NYX Cosmetics Liquid Crystal Liner from Ulta Beauty (6% cash back) will do just the trick.
Or why not go all out with a glitter eyeshadow like the Long-Wear Gel Sparkle Shadow by Bobbi Brown from Barneys New York (4% cash back). This can be a super-pretty nighttime eyeshadow look that’s much more interesting than your typical smoky eye.
So, even if you’ve finally found that perfect velvet dress for an upcoming party or the boots you’re going to wear all season, you might still be asking…what about my face? These makeup tips will inspire you to incorporate the top fall beauty trends into your makeup routine so you can take full advantage of the season before it ends.
