Makeup plays a huge part in beauty trends and 2014 is no exception.
This year is defined by soft natural base makeup and interesting lip colors. The main highlight of this year is contouring and the perfectly sculpted look is not just for ramp anymore.
With the end of summer fast approaching, we’re being bombarded with loads of fabulous fall trends. One of my favorite trends for next season is metallics.
Yep, metallics are back and I for one am nowhere near bored with them yet! So dig up those metallics from last year or treat yourself to some brand new eyeshadow.
And it’s not just metallic eyeshadow that’s totally hot for fall. So is metallic lipstick. A bit trickier to pull off than metallic eyeshadow maybe, but definitely fun!
Another great trend for fall are jewel tones. Think for example emerald, sapphire, topaz or amber. Jewel tones are amongst my favorite eyeshadow colors, so you will definitely see me sporting them next season.
And another cool trend for fall are edgy eyeliner looks. Forget a subtle flick, this fall we’re going bold and graphic. So you’d better invest in a precise deep black eyeliner that will allow you to create those bold graphic looks!
I think that makeup changes and evolves so much that it itself IS a beauty trend…the colors are textures and finishes match the season and the styles going down the aisles during fashion weeks around the world.
For example, this year the Pantone Shade Radiant Orchid was seen in lipsticks, eyeshadows and blushes.
As fall approaches you’ll notice a trend of darker lips and cranberry tones.
Makeup is a great way to express beauty trends and best yet, it washes off so you can rock a new trend every day and night!
