Hello, lovelies! Fall is here once again and designers and artists are just killing it with the makeup trends this year. From bold cheeks to two-toned lips, fall is going to be sizzling hot, and we have all the trends to make you the center of it all. Summer’s metallic eyes and graphic eyeliners are moving out to make room for Fall’s distinctive looks. Here are some makeup trends for the season.

Glossy Lips

Glossy lips are in again! If you didn’t master the matte look, no biggie. You’re now free to use a good lip gloss…or two…or ten. Glossy lips were popular on the runways this year. Totally understandable since it’s a comfortable, sleek and it is sexy look. It’s also easy to pull off. The good thing about this trend is that glosses are no longer as gooey as they were in past seasons and they also come in just about every color of the rainbow. So go ahead and gloss it up, girl!

Mauve Finish

Mauve represents the best shade when transitioning from warm to cool seasons. It makes you look amazing and also like you are not trying too hard. The best part is that you can rock this shade on your lips, eyes, and cheeks without committing any fashion infractions as it is very flattering on a wide range of skin tones. I especially love how actress Elizabeth Olsen makes this look work for her. Mix things up this fall and be mauve suave.

Sunset Eyes

Sometimes orange can be a tough color to pull off. But this fall, we’re not just following trends–we’re setting them. On the plus side, orange on the lids works for many skin tones. If you want to balance it and not look too loud, try its ombre version and you might just get mistaken for a supermodel. This daring trend is one that I absolutely cannot wait to try.

Feathered Lashes

False lashes in my opinion, are amazing. If you can master the look, they won’t look tacky. This season, don’t go for basic. Add some drama and softness at the same time with a pair of feathery lashes. These lashes will draw attention to your soulful eyes and make someone want to drown in them. Just keep the rest of your make up toned down with this look, and you are good to go.

Two-toned Lips

This look is one that captured the world by storm. Models, artists, and celebrities have all indulged in this look either on the runway or at shows. I love adding more color to my lower lip and using a lighter shade for the upper. Ladies, this is one trend that is not going anywhere anytime soon. Depending on the shades you use, it gives you that subtle worn for a while kind of finish which looks really good.

Subtly Highlighted Skin

Contoured skin is gradually fading from the radar. But guess what’s in? Highlighting. Lightly highlighting your face accentuates the areas where the light directly hits. Your cheekbones and brow arches have never looked good until you try this hack. Out with the contour, in with the highlight.

Dramatic Winged Eyeliner

For a more daring and fierce look, this is the trend to use. Winged eyeliners have a way of making its subject look not only beautiful but also really interesting. It gives that dramatic finish and lets everyone know you have arrived. This is perfect when trying to stand out from the crowd, I highly recommend it.


Makeup is definitely a must-have and when applied correctly, it just enhances your natural beauty. These trends are only ideas based on popular demand. They are not rules. So do what works best for you. When you look good and feel good, you’ll slay the season no matter what.
