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
Fresh faceKeeping the face natural and dewy was a runway fave seen at Michael Kors and Marc by Marc Jacobs. While spring and summer were all about colorful blushes, this season "it's more about the complexion and less about the blush," says Ukaeje. The key to nailing the fresh face look is to use a highlighter to provide dimension. Here's how:
Step 1: Apply primer to create a smooth base for foundation.
Step 2: Use a sheer foundation, such as Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, $42, and place it in areas where you need spot coverage. Ukaeje says to take a little foundation and warm it up in the palm of your hand, then use your fingers to apply. This will help it go on smooth and even.
Step 3: Apply a cream blush, which goes on more sheer than regular blush and looks more like a natural flush, says Ukaeje.
Step 4: Apply a highlighting blush for extra radiance. You can mix a pale pink or pale gold shimmer highlighter like Nars Illuminator in Copacabana, $29, with your cream blush to tone down the color.
Step 5: Finish with a pressed or loose powder, and make sure you put it on with a powder brush.
