5 Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

September 28, 2016

Who is loving some of the fall fashion musts? I'm looking forward to the off the shoulder sweaters and the booties!

Now, let's review what the 2016 fall makeup trends are this year. I'll give you a hint....for some trends, think the 90's!!

  • Messy eyebrows - No more pressure on having well defined, perfectly shaped eyebrows. The idea is letting them free.  Fill in any sparse areas and comb your eyebrows up.
    I'm not a big fan of the messy eyebrows but at least, I now have an excuse in case I don't have time to make it to the salon.

  • Glittery eyes - This trend can be tricky because glittery eyes can look too youthful, too cheap or way too glamorous.  If you are looking for a subtle look, try using a glitter eyeliner layered by a black eyeliner or you can always add a light layer of glitter over your eye shadow. Below are two products that I use and absolutely love for that fun look.

    L'OREAL Infallible Eyeshadow Eternal Sunshine

    Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Deep End

  • Peach - This isn't just a spring or summer color. This color is being used on the runway for a natural eye makeup look, a complete opposite from the typical dark smokey eye.

  • Dramatic eyelashes - "Spider-like" or also referred to as the "Twiggy" look.  Basically you want your eyelashes to stick together, creating a separated sparse look without the mascara clumps. 

  • Natural Glow - No more contouring, blushing and highlighting.  It's all about having the natural glow feel.  Think of how flushed your skin looks after a light workout outside as the wind hits your face.  Now let's admit it, some of us aren't born with that "glow" so we will need to use help from makeup products (unless you want to go outside and let yourself be wind kissed, it would be cheaper), check these products below.

NYX Baked Blush Solstice

Overall this season is all about natural beauty and personally, I'm all for that.  I like not having the pressure that I need to have a full face on to be accepted.  Lately I've been just keeping it simple. Tinted moisturizer, blush, lip balm and mascara. 

Personally there are some trends that I don't think should make a comeback, specially those from the 90's (or the 80's for that matter, I'm sorry but if you're still sporting the 80's hair and eyeliner, I'm here to tell you that look doesn't look good on ANYONE!! Yes, that includes you too.) but that's how the beauty/fashion industry works.  

Are some of you ready to travel back in time? Decide what trend you want to follow and try to incorporate it into your makeup this fall.  Leave us a comment below on what fall trend you like and don't like.

Always have fun with makeup!
