Sadly, summer is almost over! Yet, just like fashion, there are always new beauty trends to try out for the season.
Glam Slam loves to update its look by experimenting with hot new products and looks. It’s definitely a lot cheaper than splurging on a fall wardrobe!
Celebrity makeup artist and creator of her signature Target make-up line, Sonia Kashuk shares with Glam Slam her four favorite fall makeup trends.
Taylor Swift, Vanessa Hudgens and Blake Lively are just a few of the celebs who are loving the cat eye look. This season, the iconic 60’s look with feminine classic liner was replaced by sultry smokey winged out eyes with pointed tips in blackened jewel tone shades. The trick for the perfect angled outer corner is to follow the line of your lashes, drawing a triangle shape and then filling in with color. Use a clean buffing brush over the edges to soften harsh lines, ensuring the shape is defined, but beautifully blended. For added trend appeal, try executing this look in the eye color of the season – a beautiful rich red, as seen at Gucci! Whether it’s a burnt cranberry or rustic bordeaux, you will look high-fashion all season long.
Matte makeup were everywhere at the Fall Fashion Week, from nails, to skin, to hair. But my favorite and most prevalent example was on the lips. Velvet formulas that offer a flat but not dry effect will bring a richness to lip colors and make them pop. Surprisingly, one of the top colors on the runways was a bright couture red, as seen at Badgley Mischka show. Unusual to the dark lips of Fall, this shade looks incredibly smart in the soft shine-free finish. Also, be sure the outline of the lip is slightly blurred to avoid looking too drawn-on.
Nude faces with flirty flushed cheeks were also big and provide a feminine twist for Fall. Try a bright but translucent pink for a healthy glow, applying to the apples of the cheeks and swirling backwards towards the hairline. Product Recommendation: Beautifying Blush in Flushed
Nude nails are always big on the runways because they are classic and don’t distract from the clothes but recently they have become exceedingly popular on the streets. This fall will be no different. When you aren’t rocking your usual deep fall hue, try experimenting with a skin tone neutral or grey nude. These nature-inspired, pebble tones (as seen at Vera Wang) are understated and delicate with a twist of chic modernity.
