Needless to say, everyone must be extremely curious and nervous to see what is the new season bringing in matters of makeup trends. From natural looks to retro, sultry eyeliner and pitch-perfect red lips, get ready to make a statement. Check out these fall 2011 makeup trends and don’t be afraid to wear daring lipstick shades or dramatic eye makeup.
Natural makeupNatural makeup style will always be on-trend, not just during summertime, but also for the chilliest fall days. Well, what can be more beautiful than a clean, healthy, fresh-looking skin? For fall 2011 runways were awash by nude, flirty shades such as peach or beige. A radiant, flawless skin was spotted at Giambattista Valli, Barbara Bui and Dolce & Gabbana. You can use nude makeup in order to enhance your natural beauty. Foundation, concealer, a touch of blush on the cheeks, and a sheer nude lipstick are the products you need for a hot natural makeup.
Thick eyebrows Thin must be a constant trend when it comes to your silhouette, but for your eyebrows thick is the key word. This season, your brows should have a natural aspect as spotted at Alexander Wang, Giambattista Valli, Oscar de la Renta and Jean Paul Gaultier. Get this look using an eyebrow pencil in a color as close as the natural color of your hair and brows. Don’t forget to trim and groom eyebrow hairs so they beautifully enhance the structure of your face.
Soft blush Oh-so-lovely cheekbones are so hot. For the season ahead, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Versace suggested a nude makeup with natural-looking flush. Think sculpted cheeks for an innocent, baby doll appearance! Use soft candy pink hues and dust some blush onto the apples of the cheeks or even lower as seen at Marc Jacobs.
Eyeliner From eyes lined at the outer corners and thin winged lines to spectacular cat eyes makeup, eyeliner undoubtedly adds a glossy, sultry flair. Simple and elegant sweeps of black liner were spotted at Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney and ADAM, while more jaw-dropping approaches were seen at D&G, Anna Sui and Louis Vuitton. Changing the eyeliner style is the easiest trick to spice up your look in a classic, timeless way.
Metallics Don’t be afraid to try metallics for the eyes and get ready to make a striking impact. Chanel comes with a fearless, sophisticated combination of gray and black, while Christian Dior shows us how to rock boldly-colored eyes and vampy lips in the same time. Even though emphasizing both lips and eyes is a total no-no, you can actually pull off this look as seen at John Richmond. For daytime, opt for a gold or copper shadow as spotted at Chloe.
Orange eyeshadow Orange is a universally flattering shade and it guarantees to draw the spotlight. Step into fall with a vibrant shade for the lids. Make your eyes stand out by applying an orange eyeshadow (Rodarte, Donna Karan, Kenzo) for a soft, warm glow. Team it with subtly red or pink lipstick in order to avoid an overwhelming effect.
Bold lips This fall, vamp it up with a dramatic lip makeup! We’ve seen a parade of glamorous, boldly colored lips for stunning, wow-factor looks. From oranges (Ralph Lauren) and sexy reds (Miu Miu, Diane Von Furstenberg) to more autumnal shades like burgundy (Dsquared2), you’ll definitely turn heads with awesome, daring lips. You can pick stains instead of lipstick and remember to keep the rest of your makeup minimal.
