Summer is quickly waning, which means that it is time to put away the makeup colors and looks of summer 2010 in favor of the new, hot, fall 2010 makeup colors and trends. There are several fall makeup trends for 2010 that are not only fun, but really wearable. Here is a look at a few of the must-have makeup looks for this coming fall.
The Minimalist Makeup Face
Fall 2010 is a time to let your natural beauty shine through, with flawless skin, nude lip colors and soft, neutral eyes. The natural look is one that suits every age group and every pocketbook. The key to the minimal makeup look is to make certain that your skin looks gorgeous. Keep your eyes natural and pretty with a wash of a sheer, neutral eye shadow and a coat of brown or black mascara. Lips can go totally nude, or you can wear a lip-toned, nude gloss or lipstick. Natural beauty is always in fashion.
The “it” color for fall 2010 is plum, not just for eyes, but for lips and nails, too. Makeup designers are offering pretty palettes plum full of precious purples to delight every woman. While a deep plum lipstick might not flatter everyone, a sheer, plum-toned gloss is just as seductive. Nail lacquers in all possible shades of purple are everywhere, from a dark, dramatic, royal purple, to more pale, polite, lilac shades. Go pick a plum!
Ruby Red Lips
Dramatic, red lips are very hot again for fall 2010, and that is good news for lipstick lovers. Red lipsticks, lip stains and glosses abound, and a shade can be found for every age group and skin tone. While red lips may scare some, it is a makeup trend that is fun and one to try, even if only for special occasions. They key is to choose a shade that complements your skin tone. Lining the lips before applying red lipstick is a must, and done well, red lips rock on almost every woman.
Two-Toned Eyes and Lips
The two-toned eyes and lips makeup trend for fall 2010 can be done mild or wild. It is up to you. For dazzling, two-toned eyes, simply choose two shades of a color; one light and one darker. Sweep the lighter shade over your lids and contour your eye with the deeper shade, used in the crease and on the brow bone. Conversely, apply the darker shade over the lid and crease area and highlight the brow bone with the lighter shade. For two-toned lips, apply lipstick or gloss over the lips, then use a lighter shade over the middle of the lower lip. Use colors that blend, or be bold and layer a glimmering gold over a ravishing red.
