As seen on the runways, fall 2017 makeup looks are bold, colorful and rebellious. Fall makeup is freeing with no strict set of in or out colors. While shimmery metallics, jewel tones and dark berries painted models’ faces, so did 70s-inspired bright oranges, blues, yellows and greens. Channel your inner child – playing with makeup and coloring outside the lines – and mix in some fashion savvy for head-turning beauty.
Colorful Fall Eye Shadows
Color-blocking is not just for that slimming dress. The top designers embraced color-block eye shadow to varying degrees. Oscar de la Renta kept it subtle with a line of fuchsia surrounded by violet while Emilio de la Morena went for it with thick lines of orange, blue and white. If you want to dip your toes into the trend before diving in, wear a smudge of crimson in the middle of a smokey eye. Also, anything that glitters under the lights of Studio 54 is en vogue again. Sparkle with metallic golds, silvers, bronzes and colorful jewel tones. With these colors, you can delicately line the whole eyes or use shadow sticks to create long wingtips or block smudges under the eyes.
Dramatic Eyeliner Art
Be bold, brave beauty. Dramatic cat eyes, thick wingtips and skinny lines just below the eyebrows are all part of fall’s eyeliner art. If you’ve ever wanted to embrace your dark side, take a page from Versace’s book with thick, villainous eyeliner that tips up to the outside corners of the brows. To balance such a heavy look, draw a single liquid line on the lower lid. Spider lashes have also crept into the season. Reminiscent of Twiggy’s signature style, this trend uses liner to draw long lower lashes. Balance the look with nude lips, soft shadow and minimal top lashes.
Luscious Fall Lips
You know that look after a make-out sesh? Smudged lipstick that lets everyone know what you’ve been up to? That’s the sexy look for fall, as seen on models for Giambattista Valli, Gypsy Sport, and Rosie Assoulin. Try the look in a red or berry using either a matte or gloss. Dark, gothic lips created with matte berries, crimsons and browns are also on trend. Purple and blue lips are the most fashion-forward fall looks.
