7 Hottest Fall Makeup Trends
With this roadmap, there's no need to buy that 10-pound "Vogue" to see the newest fall makeup trends. Here's how to translate your favorite runway looks to real life
Wine-stained lipsThe minute we saw this trend at the Carolina Herrera show, we were hooked. Not convinced you can pull it off? Everyone can wear this rich color -- no matter her skin pigment -- as long as you choose the right hue, says Ukaeje. It's a great alternative to the red lip, she says, as it's a fresh twist but still bold. To make this look more wearable, makeup artist Edward Cruz recommends avoiding an opaque color. Instead, opt for a more sheer finish for an "effortless look." He recommends MAC Lipstick in Sheer Plum, $15, which is a "winner for anyone looking for a quick burgundy fix."
To make sure you choose the right hue for you:
For very fair or light skin tones: A purple wine hue with pink/red undertones.
For medium skin tones: Any hue, whether warm or cool, will be flattering.
For dark skin tones: A burgundy/plum hue with blue undertones.
Once you've picked your color, here's how to apply it.
Step 1: Prep lips with a balm, then completely blot it out, so that the color doesn't slip.
Step 2: Apply lipstick, then blot on a tissue.
Step 3: Apply a clear gloss to make the color more sheer.
