Fall Makeup

Fall Makeup Trends

Fall is officially upon us and the colors of the leaves aren’t the only thing that’s changing this season, make up trends are making a transition as well. This fall we say good-bye to summers pink and nude palettes and swatch them in for warmer colors. 

Nicole Frame, adjunct professor for the communication department, explains how her make up changes this time of year “My bronzer and gold palettes go into hibernation for the fall, sadly. I love to pull in deep purples and browns this time of year.” Using Frame’s technique, browns and purples are a perfect way to recreate a fall edition of the smokey eye. 

E.L.F. has a 32-color palette ($7, eyeslipsface.com) for your smokey eye needs. For mascara, Frame recommends Trish McEvoy Mascara “ It stays put, no clumps, and peels off… yes, peels off! A must try.” After this make up shopping spree, check out ReadySetGlamour’s YouTube channel and click her video “Grunge Fall Makeup Tutorial: Fall Smokey Eye” it’s super easy and I recommend everyone checking it out.On top of eye shadows changing, so are the lip colors. It’s time to pack away your shimmery coral lip-glosses from summer and replace it with matte lipsticks. 

Dark matte lips are just as hot as your pumpkin spice lattes this season. For this look, I recommend trying NYX Cosmetic’s Soft Matte Lip Cream ($6, nyxcosmetics.com) in colors Copenhagen, Cannes, and Transylvania. 

Jackie Burzo, a junior health studies student, is a huge fan of the dark look, “I love darker colored lipstick! My favorite is Dark Side by Mac.” Jackie also mentions how Mac is one of her favorite makeup brands along with TwoFaced, “They’re the only kind I use because I am very picky.”

Now what is fall makeup without mentioning Halloween? You can’t be the black cat, charming witch, or your favorite celebrity without sporting the perfect make up. 

Allison Perrine, a junior communication student, talks about her plans on how she’s doing her makeup this year during Halloween, “For Halloween I’ll probably wear fake eyelashes which I rarely use. It’s a day that’s acceptable to have dramatic makeup, so why not make my makeup more bold than usual?” 

Some other Halloween make up staples are Revlon’s Beyond Natural Synthetic Lashes ($9.99, Walgreens.com) and Make Up For Ever Glitters ($12, Sephora.com) this fine glitter is gentle enough for the face and even your eyes for that stand out look. For some Halloween makeup inspiration, check out YouTube makeup guru Kandee Johnson.

Last but not least, it is important to talk about skin hydration especially during the colder months. To make sure you keep your skin fresh so your makeup can look its best, be sure to keep your face clean and moisturized. 

“I just put on lotion after I shower. My foundation is also good for dry skin, so that helps too,” said Perrine. 

For a more in depth technique, Frame takes on, “Exfoliate with Fresh’s Brown Sugar Body Polish or Bliss’ Sugar Scrub followed by Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion. And of course drink plenty of water, but when days get busy, this regimen really helps.”

So before you get sad summer is over, look on the bright side because it is a new season, which means new beginnings and brand new awesome makeup trends to try.
