Fashionistas everywhere are falling in love with the 2016 forecast of trends in makeup. Fresh skin and pops of color with a little twinkle will be the focus this Winter season into the new year! We’ve created a little guide for you to get inspired by some fun updates in beauty and makeup. Enjoy!
Ultra Bright Foundation:
More chic and understated, a lighter foundation was a sensation at Nina Ricci and Balenciaga. The seamless texture with a tint of gloss, gives and hydrated and translucent look, for a healthy after-summer glow.
Out with the conventional reds and pinks, Fall 2015 lips are dark shades of Bordeaux, plum and deepest black. Matte or iridescent, don’t be afraid to turn up the drama with a dark lip.
Shades of Orange:
A big trend on the catwalk, shades of Apricot, Coral and Mandarin are a fresh look for Fall/Winter 2015-2016. Blended all around the eye area or washed over the lid, designers, including Rodarte, brought the autumnal hues to the forefront.
Because they define the face, strong, thick brows are back and look set to be the focus for Fall. Swap your tweezers for brushes and gels to create a bolder look. Remember to remain true to your natural brow shape, you’re guaranteed to begin a whole new love affair with your face!
The story in eye style for Fall 2015 is a geometric shape around the eye with an eyeliner and mascara. Create an abstract look using precise lines, dashed-off strokes or freestyle shapes. As long as it is big and bold, then it is on trend.
The New Smoky Eye:
This smoky eye is more subtle, more sophisticated and less defined this time around, but it is back nevertheless. Wear at day or night with a nude base and lip, as seen at Chanel.
No Makeup Makeup:
An even complexion, pure lips and nude eyes, this beauty look was omnipresent at the shows and is the trend to follow. Makeup is used to correct imperfections and to highlight natural beauty: less is definitely more.
Back to Black:
Applied to the inner eye, wisped through the eyebrows and on the upper eyelid, liner was the indispensable tool backstage to create an intense look in a single sweep. Grunge is normally a look for the evening, but wear it in the day for a subtle rock or classic look.
Accessorize Your Eyes:
Lines of rhinestones under the eyes and carefully trimmed false eyelashes were used to shape an intense look, 2.0-style.
As a bulwark against the Winter elements, the models showcased a glowing tan on the Fall/Winter 2015-2016 runway. The secret? A sweeping blush gives that just-come-back-from-vacation look. What’s more glamorous than traveling to St. Barth’s during the Winter months? Looking like you did.
For Anthony Vaccarello, makeup artists created a half star at the corner of eye and at Giamba the girls had the tiny arrows on their cheeks. From New York to Paris and passing over Milan and London, eyeliner designs on the model’s faces were all over the runway. The arty details varied, but it’s an easy idea for adding a rebellious touch to an evening look.
