The holiday season presents a bevy of weekend soirees, all of which are the perfect venues for experimenting with new makeup looks. Based on our observations on the international fall runways, we present to you five new makeup trends you can mix and match to your liking.
Seen at Victoria Beckham, with a slight contour, the perfected face is a sophisticated alternative to the dewy look. Besides being the most ideal canvas for your beauty looks, the powdered look is perfect for those already blessed with a poreless complexion.
Forget the smoky eye this season, put down your blending brush and perfect your liner skills instead because this look is all about precision. One tip, though—if you’re an eyeliner newbie, outline your shape with a black eye shadow and an angled brush before filling it in with some long-wearing liner.
Usually reserved for the warmer months, this season’s stained mouth is perfect for party-hopping. Low maintenance (a slight faded look is more than welcome!) and chic, the only requirement for this trend is perfectly buffed lips.
Still riding on the frenzy induced by It-girl Cara Delevigne, the bold brow trend continues to rule this season. Seen paired with pristine skin at Chloe, the brow shape for this season is bushy but tamed with a wave of gel.
DARK AND SMUDGY
The punk aesthetic provides multiple no-fuss makeup looks for the girl who likes looking just a little undone. For the party season, call attention to the undereye area with a sooty, smudgy eye. Unlike the sharp edges filed under the graphic liner trend, this one calls for a sweep of shadow under the lid and numerous blinks after a few clumpy mascara applications.
