Fall 2013 Makeup: Bare Eyes & Pigmented Lips
Among the most popular looks sported by models at the New York Fashion Week was the bare eye makeup paired with intensely pigmented lips. Fortunately, this fall season the best makeup looks displaying this particular style featured an array of lip shades so you can enjoy your best match and still look trendy. For the lips, makeup artists used everything from brown to neutrals, pinks and red tones, so ignore that shades that don’t do you justice and go for the shades that compliment your skin tone.
Don’t forget to conceal any imperfections of using concealer and foundation, sculpt the features subtly using a small amount of blush and keep the eyes bare, maybe with just a touch of primer and a white eyeliner smudged across the waterline to create the appearance of brighter and bigger eyes. Models that rocked this makeup look were spotted at Derek Lam, Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and Marc Jacobs!
Fall 2013 Makeup: The Smokey Eye
The words ‘modern’ and ‘seductive’ describe best the smokey eye and the smouldering, gradually fading eye makeup is back and hotter than ever! Black and electric blue as well as grey and black tones in both matte and metallic finish were the most popular shades used to define the eyes on the podiums, so make sure these pigments don’t miss from your new season makeup kit!
It’s up to you to decide to what degree you wish to intensify your eyes using the smokey eye technique, or if you want to consider other color combinations as one thing is for certain: this makeup is hot, hot, hot! However, keep in mind that this season the smokey eye is paired with a flawless complexion, perfectly sculpted cheeks and neutral colored lips! Take your cue from looks featured in Jason Wu or Marc Jacobs’ fall 2013 collections for best results.
Fall 2013 Makeup: Cat Eyes and Glam Eye Makeup
If you’re looking for dramatic looks, intense pigments can totally help you achieve your goal. Whether glam or with a dark, Gothic-glam touch, the following makeup looks are created to make a statement. Arm up with intense matte black pigments, metallic blue, gold, silver, deep red, you name it as any dark shade will do the trick, and shape your eyes to perfection using a single shade or multiple colors that you’ll gently blend to create a sophisticated look.
Go marbled like the look at Takoon, go mixed like the models presenting at Altuzarra, go half and half like the style from Michael Kors. Opt for cat eyes makeup similar to the style featured in Anna Sui’s fall 2013 collection as all these eye makeup styles are amazing. Keep the rest of the makeup neutral and voila! A hypnotic makeup that will make heads turn!
Fall 2013 Makeup: Minimalist & Romantic
This makeup look featured in numerous collections including Ralph Lauren’s and Calvin Klein’s, looks fabulous at any age, so if you’re looking for a makeup that is romantic and natural opt for neutral pigments and apply a highlighter on the inner corner of the eyes or a metallic neutral eyeshadow on the mobile lid. Finish off the look with lashings of mascara, a lip balm and a touch of peach/coral/tan blush on your cheekbones and you’re all good to go!
