The No. 1 Fall Makeup Trend -- And How to Pull It Off
Is gloss your go-to? Not sure you can pull off the bold new lip trends for fall? Let this be your guide
Hot lip color No. 5: Metallic"Metallic makeup in general is huge for fall," says Powers. "Traditionally when people think of metallics, it's all about a smoky eye (see how to wear fall's smoky metallic eye here). But now we're seeing it on the lips as well. It's a great way to add shine and dimension to your lips, and you can even layer a metallic gloss on top of your favorite lipstick for added glamour, or try a lipstick with a metallic finish."
To choose the right hue for you:
For fair skin tones: Opt for a metallic that is either light (like a metallic nude) or more vibrant (like a bright lip color with a metallic finish). "I love Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lip Gloss in #M8, $18. It's a bright metallic cherry red," says Powers.
For medium skin tones: Any golden-hued lipstick or gloss will look great on you. A fall favorite: CoverGirl Queen Collection Lipcolor Lipstick in Spicy Seduction, $6.99.
For dark skin tones: Stay away from silvers, which tend to be too bright; gold and copper will look more natural. You can also try a dark berry metallic lipstick or gloss. "Deep skin looks incredible in any metallic shade," says Powers. "You can really play with texture and try an opaque metallic gold or copper lipstick as a base." Powers likes Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in #17, $19, and suggests adding your favorite gloss on top.
