Happy 1st day of fall! I LOVE a change of season! Time to change your wardrobe, your home decor, and your MAKEUP! I talked through some of my favorite fall makeup trends that anyone can do on Facebook live today. Here’s the video if you missed it…

To sum it up, here’s the biggies!

Brown Lips

Channel your inner 90’s chick and work the brown tones into your lip color. Just keep them more matte or you’ll look legit 90’s. I don’t wear a lot of color on my lips so my favorite is Stark Naked from Urban Decay!

Dewy Skin

A great healthy complexion is always in! Usually we switch for a more matte finish for fall and winter, but this year we’re staying dewy! I love it! I’m wearing Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation with Bare Minerals powder on top to set it but keep the dewy look.

Other favorite are Laura Mercier Illuminating tinted moisturizer and Lorael Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation.

Sunset Colors

Eyes, lips, and cheeks! If it’s found in the sunset, go for it! Coppers, burgundy, and peaches. I love these colors all day every day! And they don’t have to be dark. Keep your summer shades as well! Just keep them warm. 🌅

Some favorite blushes I talked about are MAC Modern Mandarin, Wet n Wild Pearlescent Pink, and I talked about Benefit Bella Bamba, but it’s discontinued apparently. 😬 Grab CORALista from Benefit instead for a great peachy cheek!

Other Trends…

Soften up the contour and the highlight. It’s not as strong as it has been, with the emphasis being more on a natural looking face. As always, a classic red lip with black liner is in and will be forever I think! A classic is a classic.

Then refresh your black liner and get to work! Smudge it all around or add a wing, but keep it small. Just think 90’s!

Final Thoughts…

Trends are just that, trends. What I LOVE about the ones for fall is that they’re still so classic! Everyone can wear it and look beautiful! When playing with new ideas, remember to make it work for YOU! You don’t fit in a mold and your makeup shouldn’t either. Always pick what makes you feel like the best you and pair it with a big smile. 😄 Then you’ll rock it out every day!
