Makeup trends for autumn and winter 2010 involve a good mix of balance. If you’re trying to achieve a bolder lip, minimize what you use on your eyes. You might consider a thin coat of mascara across the upper lid lashes, or possibly a bare eye with a bit of highlighting. Alternatively, you could apply makeup in the opposite way, with more definition to your eyes. You could then use makeup with a more natural look for your lips. Whatever the case, this fall it’s all about attaining a balanced look. Let’s start with looks for the skin.
First, keep in mind that healthy-looking skin is the best place to start when you’re trying to create a flawless look. So keep a healthy diet and lifestyle to maintain that aspect of your appearance.
Making the whole face more harmonious and in sync can be achieved with warmer colors for those with winter-type skin tones. Colors like beiges that resemble a honey color, or perhaps browns that mimic a rusty tone, along with maybe a more dusky apricot will all combine together for a cohesive look. If you’re of a paler complexion, try going for a coral color that will give you a bright, fresh and flushed look. You’re skin will scream, “I’m healthy!”
If you’re daring to go bare, do it with some highlighting that vibrantly springs from the nose, forehead and cheeks as well. Natural looks are in for fall 2010.
If you’re going for a retro look, red, retro lips are always a timeless classic that make the runways around the world no matter what time of year it is. If you’d like a more modern version, try a lip stain. These help your lips stay free from smudging and also create texture for different variations of lip looks.
Another big lip-color trend is black. What’s more pouty than a full set of black, temptress lips? This, along with other dramatic, dark, berry colors, is the hot makeup trend for lips in fall 2010. Glossy textures will maintain a sexy yet elegant style when you wear these colors. Start with black lip liner, then add a black base inside the liner that you’ll top off with deep purple or red-colored gloss. Drama, drama, drama.
Sultry and smokey is where you want to go with your eyes this fall, from deep dark blue or gray hues, to dark amber browns, all the way to the blackest blacks. These are the shadows that will bring you to an updated, trendy, fall 2010 makeup look. Define this look even further by outlining the entire area of dark shadow, with shimmering gold shadows that add a touch of ambiance to finish the look.
Shadow is just the beginning. Finish off your smokey look with even more defining eye drama by outlining the eyes well with liner, and you’ll be capturing the essence of this year’s makeup trends for fall 2010.
