Fall/Winter 16 Makeup Trends
This fall it’s all about having a ”Statement piece” that carries out your look – keeping the rest of the face simple, toning down the heavy contouring and letting your focal point shine. Check out these 5 makeup trends this season.
Perfectly imperfect liner. Caffeine addicts rejoice! Chunky, smudgy, or all over the waterline – anything goes. That’s the beauty of this trend. I like to use a soft kohl liner in the upper and lower lasher lines, then smudge them out a pencil brush or eyeshadow sponge. It’s very grungy and I’m obsessed. (Try Mac “smolder” eye kohl and a Mac 209 brush – for some tips on other ways to use your makeup brushes click here )

Popping up on red carpets everywhere lately is a soft winged shadow look. It’s a perfect way to wear a sultry eye but remain soft and a little under the radar. You can literally use any tone of shadow for this as you will see in these examples, but lately I’ve been using a lot of warm rustic tones, especially a matte bronzer, because it is not as pigmented as shadow.

We see trends from the past make their way back into circulation, in their new modern form, all of the time. In the 90’s, if you weren’t wearing a brown lip, you were wearing a frosted lip. And now, the frosted/metallic lip is making a comeback. I have touched on this a little before, but now we are getting more in tuned to this trend. The good news is you don’t have to go out and buy new products. I like to use a nude lipstick and top with my favorite highlighting powder. (Try The Balm Mary Lou-manizer)

I know this sounds weird, but hear me out. This is about accentuating both the top and the bottom lashes. Making sure to curl the top lashes, apply multiple coats of mascara. The idea is not to have chunky messy lashes with too much product, but rather to elongate and define each lash, especially the bottom. To avoid looking too doll-like, I like to use a brown mascara (or brow gel!) on the bottom lashes instead of black. It takes the harsh edge off.

Do you ever look at someone and your immediate reaction is “wow, they have beautiful skin..”? That’s what this trend is all about. A primary focus on the radiance of the skin. It is more difficult to achieve than it sounds. Rather than over highlighting the face, it’s about moisture, balance, and an overall clean makeup. Groomed brows, lightly filled and brushed slightly up, Curled lashes and clear mascara. For the face I’ve really been liking this formula: 2 parts foundation 1 part oil (Try Josie Maran Argan oil, Bio-oil, or any moisturizing face oil), this sheers out the coverage, makes it easy to blend and gives a healthy finish. Brighten up under the eyes with a lighter tone of foundation rather than a concealer. Finish up with a medium sheen lip balm. For the most natural rosey cheeks, have a glass of wine. J
