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
Upside down cat eyeAnother summer favorite -- the cat eye -- is getting an upgrade. Instead of drawing the cat eye along your lashline, draw it about 1/2-inch above it, where your crease is or should be. Then wing it out to achieve a lifted cat eye effect. "This look is very artistic -- some people can interpret it and do it right and for others, I'm scared," says Ukaeje. To make this edgy look wearable, she recommends replacing the pencil liner for shadow, so that the line is less harsh, and following these steps:
Step 1: Apply concealer from lashline to brow to even out skin tone.
Step 2: Sweep a matte skin-toned color from lashline to brow with an eyeshadow brush.
Step 3: Apply a dark brown shadow to the middle of your lid with a contoured brush and clearly define your crease. You can sweep the outer corner up and out to create a cat eye angle. It'll look softer than the runway look because it's a powder instead of a liner.
Step 4: Line the upper and lower lashlines with an eyeliner pencil in the same color.
Step 5: Curl eyelashes and apply two coats of volumizing mascara, like Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara, $19.
