Time to store away the pastel colors and bust out rich, darker tones. This year’s fall fashion makeup trends range from nearly natural to bold and sassy.
Play around with some fall makeup looks and flaunt them this September and October. Check out these 2010 fall makeup trends:
I love the fresh, natural look of Charlize Theron’s makeup. This season, the nearly natural look is in. Focus on creating a smooth, even skin tone with primer, concealer and foundation. Then add a hint of blush for a naturally flushed look, skip the shadow, and apply a few coats of mascara.
We’re not only seeing purple apparel and accessories popping up, but makeup too. No shades are off limit either – runway looks are showcasing light lavender shadows, deep plum purple lipstick and vibrant violet for nails. I love Beyonce’s vibrant shadow in this pick, and the peachy-nude gloss is perfectly subdued so her look isn’t overdone.
Marilyn’s lips were always gorgeously painted in red, and you can enjoy the same classy look. When you decide on rocket-red lips, play down the eyes to make sure you don’t end up looking… err trashy. Opt for a matte finish rather than a glossy one, it has extra staying power and doesn’t run. Red lipstick queen Poppy King has some tips on finding the right shade and texture.
Natalie Portman always rocks the smokey eye. Normally they’re done up with charcoal greys and blacks, but this fall, lighter browns and bronzes are in. At the 2010 Venice Film Festival, Natalie’s brown eyes twinkle as they’re lightened by bronze shadow with glints of gold. Just make sure, like Natalie, you wear a lighter gloss so the two features don’t battle each other out.
What do you think? Will you be sticking with one single look this fall, or playing with all of them?
