Find Out Which Beauty Looks Are Hot for Fall

Malandrino NYFW
It’s time to discuss the big, the bad, and the bold beauty trends we can expect to see later this year, as dictated by the runways at Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week. From lips, to eyes, to skin, here are a few of the makeup looks that will be popular come fall.

Bold Lips

Dominating the runways this season were bold lips in every shade of red, from deep crimson to coral. Many a model was seen rocking a more or less neutral face, with chiseled features and larger-than-life lip shades. The overall effect is to draw attention to the lips, and to keep it there. Following the typical rule of thumb for deeper shades, the textures of the lip looks veered more to the matte and satin side, forgoing the effects a glossier lip may have.

Non-Traditional Smoky Eyes

Always a classic, the smoky eye provides a dose of the dramatic to your look. Typically done in varying shades of black, grey, and brown, this versatile favorite made several appearances on the runways this season in unexpected shades. From pink, to blue, to green, some of the bold eye makeup looks certainly made a statement. This fall, take a chance with your eye makeup and utilize colorful shades in your smoky eye.

Graphic Liner

The retro look saw a major comeback via dramatic eyeliner and heavy, full lashes. The look is easy to execute, with the right liquid liner, technique, and intensely volumizing mascara. A sexy blast from the past, the graphic look is one that we will surely continue to see time and time again.

Polished Skin

Clean, dewy skin was a major part of this season’s beauty trends. Models were prepped and primed with just the right amount of products to achieve a glowing, natural look. Makeup artists added a slightly chiseled appearance through the use of matte, contouring shades of powder and bronzer. When the skin is perfected, there’s no need to do much else in terms of eyes and lips. This minimalist look was certainly favored on the runways for the fall and winter seasons.

Will you be trying any of these makeup trends for yourself?
