What are the Latest Fashion Trends in Makeup?

Makeup trends are always changing, and certain looks tend to cycle in and out throughout the years. This fall, we have some classic looks and exciting new trends to explore.

1. Baby-Doll Eyelashes

If you love looking feminine, you might like this style. Long, fluttery eyelashes combined with soft, pretty makeup were spotted on fall runway models at Prada, Saint Laurent, Gucci and Versace shows. Most of the looks were soft and pale, but Prada combined long lashes and darker stained lips for a stunning effect.

The smoky eye isn’t exactly a new trend, but it is a popular look for this fall. Bold, heavily smudged smoky eyes were seen on the models at Tom Ford, Missoni and Nicole Miller’s fall runway shows, while designers like Marc Jacobs and Roberto Cavalli went for a more understated look.

Lightly line and smudge your eyes and pair with a neutral lipstick for a cute daytime look, and amp it up when you go out for a night on the town. That’s the best thing about the smoky eye. You can intensify it as much as you like. This look is a classic for a reason!

3. Lined Upper Lids

If you’ve always felt that smoky eyes look weird on you, you can always go for another eye makeup trend this season – intense eyeliner on the upper lids. Designers like Lanvin, Rag & Bone and Jean Paul Gaultier all featured this look on their models, and Gaultier’s heavily winged version was particularly bold. Most of the designers paired this look with a pale, neutral lip, but it also works great with classic red lipstick and a little black dress.

We’ve had enough of the classic looks. What are the latest fashion trends? Gorgeous, shimmering metallic eyes and lips were spotted all over the runways this season, from Issey Miyake to Rodarte. You can keep it subtle with a neutral brown or black, or you can step it up a notch with shimmering gold, silver or other bright colors.

Sometimes the simplest looks are the most beautiful, which is great because they are the easiest to pull off. Models for Calvin Klein, Jason Wu, Diane Von Furstenburg and Ralph Lauren all had dewy, fresh-looking skin with a subtle glow and minimal eyes and lips during the shows. The key to making this work for you is to make it look like you’re not wearing any makeup at all. Stick to the basics like concealer, lip balm, mascara and a touch of blush or bronzer with just a hint of dewy sparkle.
