Makeup trends, colors and styles change from season to season and year to year, and as a leader in this industry, you'll definitely want to be on the cusp of what's in, which you'll learn more about in cosmetology training. It's always fun to be on point with the latest season's trends, whether you're glamming up for a night out with friends or preparing a client for an important event.
As we bid farewell to the last moments of summer, hazy days spent in the sun and weekend getaways to the beach, we can embrace all things pumpkin-flavored, our favorite sweaters and that cool breeze in the air as we jazz it all up with the latest makeup trends. The crispness in the air during autumn certainly lends itself to warmer, richer colors, especially around the red, yellow, orange and brown hues of the changing leaves. This fall you're sure to see inspiration taken from nature and applied to a makeup palette. Here are some of our favorites:
Harper's Bazaar pointed out that popular trend on the runways for the fall has been the use of metallics in makeup. Bronze and silver shadows and liners add a fun pop of shimmer to your eyes that can be understated or bold and out there.
The eyes are getting a lot of attention this fall, and full, voluminous lashes are certainly the trend. To achieve season's lash look, apply mascara to both the top and bottom lashes, and don't afraid to be a little heavy handed in your application.
The cat eye trend with eyeliner continues into the fall, giving this 1960s glam look a modern update. For this trend, you can opt for more subtle cat eye swoops or intensely covered lids with a more severe line. Another trend with liners for the fall is a sleeker, more defined look with colored (and metallic!) options as seen at Nicole Miller and Tom Ford's shows
4. Bold brows
Bold, defined brows continue to be a popular look. As Allure magazine noted, pencil-thin eyebrows never look natural, so it's better, and more on-point for autumn, to take it easy with the excessive plucking and aim for a thicker, fuller shape. For more definition, you can use a brow pencil that's one shade lighter than your natural eyebrow color.
5. Smoky eyes
Whether it's achieved with liner, shadow or a combination of the two, smoky eyes were popular on the fall fashion runways including at the Nicole Miller and Rodarte shows. The smoky eye creates a dramatic and moody effect, but the trend this season is to create a look that can work for both day and night. For this, you can choose less harsh colors like browns and light to medium grays.
6. Pops of color
Jewel tones are often popular in the cooler weather months, and pops of color will be trending this fall. Whether it's a dark cherry red lip or splashes of green or blue across the eyes with shadow or liner, these little bursts will brighten up your face. The style was seen at Chanel and Altuzarra fall runway shows.
