5 Makeup Trends for Fall 2012

To followup on the Hair trends for Fall 2012, I thought I would pop in some upcoming makeup trends as well.  Now, I am not the most makeup savvy individual.  I have my favourite items that I use daily, and that is about it.  But, I do have to say that I am a fan of some of the techniques coming up as they are simple and pretty, which is my favourite makeup application.

1. Bold Brows

Bold brows don’t mean that you should totally put your tweezers away, but you can use them significantly less.  I have always loved the bold brow because it showcases one’s natural beauty.  If you don’t have a lot to work with up there, just use a eyebrow pencil to fill in the blanks.

2. Beautiful Browns

I find that browns in makeup are incredibly versatile and can be dressed up and smoky or dressed down and natural. Anyone can pull browns off, the key is to match your skin tone and decide whether or not to go for cooler tones or warmer tones.

Blumarine

3. Geometric Eyeliner

Geometric Eyeliner is definitely one of the bolder looks for the upcoming season.  I love the 60’s mod vibe that it brings and if you are one that likes to make a statement, this is one technique for you to try out.

4. Deep Red Lips

I think I am drawn to the deep red lip as it is a look I sported for a good portion of the 90’s.  It draws attention to your beautiful kisser and invokes a sense of drama.  Let your lips be the star, and go minimal on other features.

5.  Fresh and Natural

This is by far one of my favourite looks, as I am always drawn to anything that lets a person’s natural beauty shine through.  Rosy cheeks, rosy lips, and a little mascara will complete this look.  And if it takes you more than 5 mins to apply, you are doing too much.

Colour Blocking

Colour blocking has been a trend that has made its way through the decades.  In the sixties it was YSL’s Mondrian dress. In the seventies it was muted patchwork.  In the eighties it was glammed up with sequins and boxy silhouettes.  And in the nineties it was blocks of bright neon.

If you go into any stores, or open any magazines right now you will see that colour blocking is currently a huge trend and is being used with bold colours of the upcoming seasons, in many forms.
