Fall 2017 Make-up Trends

Selection of Lip Products

As we head into September I can't help but get excited for Autumn, my favourite time of year. I love when the leaves start to change and the dark nights return and I can't wait to start wearing jumpers and cute ankle boots! So all this excitement got me thinking about what new make-up trends will be making an appearance this year, so I thought I would do some research and show you all the new looks we will be wearing for fall 2017.

Berry Red Lips
Seen at Giambattista Valli, Valentino and Alice and Olivia shows.
Dark red is always popular at this time of year, who doesn't love a vampy lip in winter? This year there are lots of dark cherry red tones in glossy finishes. This look is being paired with fresh minimal make-up letting the lips be the statement. To really follow this trend you should wear your lipstick in a very relaxed and undone way, don't apply lip liner and worry about making it look perfect. This year the look should be blended at the outer edges in a just kissed kind of way.

Lash Drama
Seen at Chanel, MSGM, Jeremy Scott and Topshop Unique shows.
This fall if you want to follow the trends you need to add some drama to your eyes, more specifically the lower lash line. You might call it clumpy lashes, spider or doll eyes but either way, there's a lot of focus being added to those bottom lashes which can often be forgotten. This trend has a very sixties vibe which I love and you can really decide yourself how dramatic you want to go. If you're feeling brave you can apply individual lashes and create something quite intense or for an easier, more relaxed look apply a generous coat of black mascara to the lower lashline and build up to create the desired effect.

Artistic Eyeliner
Seen at Chloe, Thierry Mugler, Balmain and Versace shows.
Eyeliner is always popular and this year we are seeing a few different looks from all around black to creative work on the upper eyelid. The Balmain and Chloe shows had black liner applied both top and bottom with a very smudged and blended look it was also slightly winged out but in a much more relaxed way to the strong precise winged looks we have had recently. If this look isn't for you but you feel daring you could try the 'banana' look that has also dominated the catwalks. This involves drawing a line above your crease which could be very curved or angular, this is almost a new take on the cut crease with a much more edgy feel. This isn't all that wearable in my opinion but if you created a beautiful sixties inspired look I think it could work.

Other Looks
Whilst looking through all the runway images I did notice a few other trends popping up which I will mention briefly.
Metallic -  I noticed a lot of simple metallic touches being used like a simple wash of gold shimmer being washed across the eyes.
Colour Block - This seemed particularly used in eye make-up, many shows featured bright colours blocked together on the eyes creating a very bold look.
Peachy Keen - This wasn't as obvious but there was definitely some looks featuring soft peach tones creating a very fresh look, as you would expect this was always paired with very natural make-up.
Natural Sheen - As you will often see on the runway many shows also opted for the classic fresh skin and minimal make-up look, this often included some sort of gloss on the face to give a beautiful sheen.
