Fall is the perfect time to experiment with a brand new look. On the autumn runways, designers and makeup artists played with new shapes and colours that are we’ve never seen before. Shake up your makeup this season with these top fall 2012 runways beauty trends.
Vampy Dark Lips
Take a cue from the bloodsucking trend in pop culture and rock blood red, burgundy or wine coloured lips. This sexy style, see at Gucci and Bottega Veneta (and already being sported by tons of celebs) can go goth pretty quickly, so keep eyes and cheeks minimal.
Don’t it safe when using liner this fall. Channel a vintage vibe by drawing in lines above your natural lash line (as seen at Altuzarra) or try an exaggerated, smokey cat eye with dark shadow for a fierce, retro-inspired look (sported by models at nearly every runway show). Downplay lips and cheeks to keep the focus on your peepers.
Ditch your neutral eye palette for bright pops of rainbow hued eye shadow. Vibrant blues, cherry reds and bold oranges, like those worn by models at Anna Sui and Mugler, can make you stand out in a sea of earth-toned makeup. If it’s just too much colour for you, opt for white shimmering shadow in bold streaks for a fashion-forward look (rocked by models at Fendi).
Look like you’ve just stepped off the ski hill by sporting blush and bronzer that’s just a little too dark for your skin tone. Apply more than you normally would in the hollows of your cheeks and up your temples, just like the fresh-faced models at Micheal Kors and Rodarte. Keep the eyes simple and make your lips pop with a natural looking berry shade and you’ll be apré¨s ski chic in no time.
