Fall is finally here, which means that we have to say goodbye to sun-kissed skin and scent of the sea in our hair. Don’t be desperate because of that – fall indeed has so much to offer, especially when talking about the latest beauty trends that are unavoidable this season. Here are four of them, with the tips on how to pull them off in the best possible way. Enjoy!
Black eyeliner is an absolute must-have when it comes to fall, and it works the best in combination with nude lips. However, this year’s trend is slightly different in terms of shapes. Instead of thick lines or perfectly defined flicks – make it smudged and not as noticeable as a harsh black line. Use your favorite gel liner and apply it to the lash line. Then smudge it and you will end up with perfect smoky eyes which look more natural and subtle. Also, when you are picking the most flattering nude shade for your lips, it is important to know that you should choose one shade lighter than your natural lip colour. Pick the one with satin-like finish, whose magnificent texture will compliment your look in the best possible way.
Big, bold brows are once again rocking the beauty industry, even this fall. Just think of Cara Delevingne and everything will be much clearer to you. Her brows are always perfectly groomed, and if you want to pull off this trend, make sure that you are not making the following mistake. It is crucial that your brows look natural, which is why you must not use a brow pencil that will make them matte, solid and flat. That is not realistic, and such brows will make you look ridiculous. Instead of that, use a soft brow pencil to draw the hairs in, and then brush them into precision. This technique will certainly make them look natural, so that even Cara will be jealous of you.
Shimmer, sequins and sparkle are making a huge comeback this fall, and girls who love bling are overly excited about that fact. It definitely adds a touch of glamour to every look. Applying a shimmery eyeshadow on the inner corner of your eyes will make them look bigger and more open, which looks fabulous in photos. If you live by the motto “Go big or go home!” you can apply it all over your eyelids for a more dramatic look. However, if you are not such a big fan of shimmer, you can just use gold, silver or bronze eyeliner, depending on the colour of your eyes.
Super-defined cheekbones and a flawless complexion are highly required this fall, and this sculpting look can be easily achieved by contouring. All you need is a contouring kit, couple of brushes and several different shades of foundation. A combination of lighter shades for highlighting and darker ones for defining is the favourite beauty trick of many celebrities, because it helps them make their face visually slimmer and smaller. Many stars, such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston and Blake Lively relied on it before they went for rhinoplasty procedure, because this perfect contouring technique is a key to success when it comes to the visual appearance of the nose.
These four makeup trends for this fall are definitely here for a good reason. They are indeed amazing, simply because they put an emphasis on the most beautiful features of a woman’s face, enhancing her natural beauty with the products that are an ultimate hit for this season. Which ones are your favourite?
