Fall 2013 Makeup Trends

So everyone knows there are always new clothing trends for every season, but not everyone knows that there are new makeup trends as well.  I'm doing a whole week of fall posts this week, & decided to cover my favorite season's makeup trends today.  The always helpful Harper's Bazaar website is my source for today's trend report.

1. Cat Eyes
Seen on the catwalk at many shows pictured is a model at Kenzo.  Harper's Bazaar says that "CoverGirl makeup artist Pat McGrath layered liquid and pencil liners in a dramatic winged shape, then dotted below the lashline for an avant-garde edge".  Try Lancome Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner in the color of your choice.

2. Orange-y Shadow
Shown here on a model at BCBG, "the reddish brown was used as a neutral to sculpt and shade around the eyes, while at Altuzarra, makeup artist Tom Pecheux, working with MAC, blended the shade 'downward through the lower lashline. It gives a vibrant but diffused strength to the eye,' he said".  Try NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Mediteranee.

3. Red Lips
At Marc Jacobs (shown here), "Shiseido makeup artist Dick Page layered two glosses for a lustrous, opaque sheen".  Try Marc Jacobs Beauty Lovemarc- Lip Gel in Neo-Noir.
4. Prune Eyes
Modeled here at Giles, this shade was shown done light & very heavy.  I like the smokey eye look pictured below, but if you are looking for something a little less dramatic (& more appropriate for day) prep eyes with a mix of pale bronzy/tan shadows from lash line to brow bone, then softly apply a plum eyeshadow to your eyelids, & finish by coating your lashes with mascara.  Try Too Faced Boudior Eyes Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection to get the look.

5. Glittery Eyes
Of this look Bazaar says, "Is there a woman among us who doesn’t love a little bling—especially as an eye-enhancing accent? At Donna Karan [shown here], MAC makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury mixed pearly glitter into black-grey cream shadow".  I recommend going for a less severe look then pictured, the Too Faced Glamour To Go Palette has some very pretty highly glittery shadows.

6. Wine Lips
Who doesn't love a glass of red wine in the fall?  Better who doesn't want a wine colored pout, like shown here at Vera Wang.  Try Too Faced La Creme in Divine Wine.

7. Gray Eyeshadow
"Forget smoky eyes. The slate gray finish on lids this season was sheerer and more mysterious, like a post-storm mist or a moody fog" says Bazaar.  Try Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow in No 52 5th Avenue.

These are all the makeup trends that you should be trying right now!  Which is your favorite?
