Summer is officially over, and it’s once again that time to break out those cozy knit sweaters, and flannel shirts! I am here to inform you that the season of fresh-faced looks has come to an end, and there is a completely new makeup style guide that has taken its place. But don’t fret- by sharing with you my absolute favorite fall makeup trends, you will be fully up to date, and ready to take on this year’s 2018 fall season!
1. Warm Eyes
The one color that comes to everyone’s mind when fall rolls around is, of course, orange. Whether it be in the changing leaves or pumpkins, wherever you go in the fall, there are beautiful shades of orange all around. However, according to the 2018 fall trends, your eye makeup should be no different!
Warm eyes are everywhere this season, and may look tricky, but are actually super easy, and beautifully enhance any eye color. This look is created with just a simple blend of oranges, browns, or even reds, and can be applied as subtly or as bold as you like.
Just think of it as a warm smoky eye!
2. Brown Lips
To continue with our darker trends this fall, brown lips are steadily making a comeback.
Luckily, this trend is completely versatile, and can be adapted to whatever style you want. Whether you choose a matte or glossy look, brown lips are high up on my favorite fall trends, as they easily bring a touch of edginess to any look. They are the perfect accent against the newly changing leaves!
3. Bold Brows
While on the topic of edginess: yes, I am pleased to inform you that bold brows have not gone away.
If you haven’t been living under a rock, you have probably have noticed that thick eyebrows are everywhere, and you still may be unsure whether or not to jump on the bandwagon.
So, if you’re still deciding, let me help you by saying that filling or tinting your eyebrows can easily round out any look, while also making a sophisticated statement. For so long we have ignored our lovely brows, but by just giving them a little TLC (in the form of shape, definition, and color), I promise that you will look trendy, and feel ready to take on the world this fall.
Seen typically with pinks and browns, the next fall trend I am loving is the monochromatic look. I personally am one for the natural look, and the great thing about this style, is that you can go as natural or as bold as you want!
For instance, pairing a berry lip with a subtle pink eye, can instantly soften your features, enhancing your natural beauty.
However, if you want to make more of a statement, switching out those pinks for browns will absolutely do the trick! As I mentioned earlier with trend #2, brown lips are popular this fall, and pairing them with a brown smoky eye, will provide a refined look perfect for the 2018 sweater season.
OK, enough talk about dark palettes. Last but not least on my fall 2018 trend list is color. More specifically: colorful eyeshadows. Now, I know It’s easy to think of the infamous 80s blue eyeshadow craze when I mention this trend, but I promise you, when done right, this look is beautiful.
When picking a shade, I recommend only staying with colors that compliment your skin. This might sound obvious, but when using bold colors, this is a must. For instance, this trend has been seen more with jewel tones, but if your skin isn’t cool-toned, use warmer colors instead like red or orange.
Bottom line: The possibilities for this trend are endless. Live your best makeup life this fall, and add a little color to get you out of that end of summer slump!
