Gorgeous makeup is an essential fall accessory. Whether you’re out on the town or just going to work, you will want to have flawless makeup this fall. I’m obsessed with the deep, rich colors for fall and love incorporating them into my makeup look. I’ve scoured the photos from the fall 2012 catwalks and have highlighted the 7 most gorgeous fall makeup trends. Are you ready to see what fall has to offer? Let's do this!
1 Wine-Stained Lips
Deep reds, burgundies, plums, and mulberries graced the lips of models from Gucci, Rochas, Givenchy, and many other fashion houses this fall. It may seem scary to apply such a bold lip color, but pair it with a neutral eye and cheek makeup and you will have a balanced makeup look that is on-trend for fall. When wearing a deep lip color, it’s usually best to apply a lip liner in a similar shade first to make the lipstick goes on smoothly and evenly. This bold look is perfect for an evening out with the girls!
2 Graphic Black Eyeliner
Graphic black eyeliner will really make your eyes a statement. Putting emphasis on your eyes with graphic black eyeliner will give you a sultry, sexy look. This look was all the rage on the runways at Lanvin this fall. If you’ve never applied graphic eyeliner before, the first time might be tedious, but take your time and remember practice makes perfect!
3 Bold Brows
Gone are the thin, over-tweezed eyebrows! Bold brows made a strong comeback this fall. They were seen on the catwalks of Alexander Wang, Derek Lam, Jil Sander and Altuzarra. So throw out your tweezers and let your brows go au natural to frame your gorgeous fall eye makeup. If you don't have naturally thick eyebrows, don't fret! Just take your eyebrow pencil and draw them in!
4 Monochromatic, Nude Faces
A simple yet striking fall makeup trend is a nude, monochromatic face. To achieve this look choose a rosy pink to apply to your eyes, cheeks, and lips. I like to use one that is similar in color to that of my natural lip color. This gorgeous fall makeup trend is great for daytime or when you have a limited amount of time to apply your makeup. It's fresh, super easy to do and totally great for any time!
5 Brown Smoky Eyes
I know most of us think black when we hear the term smoky eye, but this fall the smoky eye is going brown! Burberry Prorsum rocked this look at their fall fashion show. One of my favorite ways to achieve this fall makeup trend is to use my bronzer as eyeshadow. Just smoke it on your eyelids and add a bit of black liner and mascara to complete the look. It's great for date night!
6 Flushed Cheeks
Although there is a fine line between flushed cheeks and clownish, old lady rouge, there is actually a line. To avoid looking clownish, opt for a peach shade of blush rather than pink. Apply it liberally onto the cheekbones, and blend well. The goal for this fall makeup trend is to look flushed as if you’ve just finished a vigorous workout. Keep the rest of your makeup toned down and show off those gorgeous cheekbones for once!
7 Bright Matte Lips
Bright matte lips just might be my favorite fall makeup trend. Bright colors are fun and playful and can brighten up any look. The great thing about a matte, bright lip is that even though it’s cheerful, it’s not an in-your-face look. A matte, hot pink pout will turn heads this fall. Don’t believe me? Just check out the beautiful models from Thakoon’s fall runway.
