3 Makeup Trends You Need To Try For Fall
The temperatures are slowly starting to drop, which can only mean one thing…fall is just around the corner. I know some of you have already started to pull out your booties, chunky sweaters and maybe even a lightweight jacket? September is also the perfect month to experiment with new makeup trends. It’s time to start reaching for those vampy lipsticks, creating deeper smoky eyes, and maybe even upping your blush game. The three main trends I’ve been seeing all over the runway when it comes to new trends are smoky neutral eyes, a flush of blush and dewy lips.
Although a smoky eye isn’t necessarily new, we’ve normally seen it done in shades of grey, charcoal and black. This fall it’s being revamped and taking an unusual twist on an old classic. The new Revlon PhotoReady Eye Contour Kit in Metropolitan offers both matter and simmer metal tones to help you achieve the perfect neutral eye. The amazing thing about a neutral smoky eye, is that it can easily be worn both day and night. Unlike the traditional grey smoky eye, which is best suited for the evenings, this new nude look can take you from work to play. Playing with browns, nudes, chocolates, tans and even coffee hues are an excellent way to add both depth and dimension to your look.
To really add some drama and intensity to your eyes, don’t forget liner. Although it may take some time to get use to, once you master the Revlon ColorStay Exactify Liquid Liner, you’ll get smooth, thin, even lines every time. Its unique “wheel-like” tip is a little challenging to control at first, but once you get the hang of it, you can draw thin precise lines with ease. Once set and locked into place, it’s completely smudge, smear and fade proof the entire day.
Finish your eye look off with a little mascara and you’re good-to-go. Try the Revlon Volumazing Mascara for that perfectly fanned-out, mega length and volume lashes without the use of falsies. It helps to intensify any makeup while still looking incredibly natural. Its ultra-black pigments coat lashes for an extremely shiny and intense, almost lacquered effect. Its perfectly spread out bristle design immediately grabs onto every lash, defining and lengthening in a blink of an eye. Its ultra-thick formula delivers dark, dramatic lashes that don’t smudge or flake the entire day.
You’re going to want to keep the brows, soft, fluffy and natural. The brand’s best-selling ColorStay Brow Pencil will help you achieve just that. Its perfectly angled tip allows you to softly and precisely fill in brows, while the spoolie end helps to tame, shape and fluff up your natural hairs. The pencil end effortlessly glides across the skin with ease, allowing you to add instant colour to your brows. You can easily define the brow and create extremely accurate feather-like strokes that look incredibly natural. Its slightly waxy-like texture not only seamlessly blends into the skin; it helps to lock and hold everything into place.
Keeping with that natural theme, the new Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation will allow your natural beautiful skin to show through, while still providing a little coverage. It features an incredibly lightweight, buildable formula that can easily take you from a sheer wash of colour to a more medium coverage to help conceal those minor imperfections. Its weightless consistency is extremely comfortable to wear throughout the entire day, and it didn’t seem to oxidize or breakdown. This is the perfect foundation on days you want that “my skin but better” effect without feeling heavy or weighted down.
As for the concealer, the brand offers a product that’s designed and created to go hand-in-hand with the foundation. The new Revlon PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer is the perfect formula when you’re looking to camouflage dark circles and puffiness, while brightening and awakening the skin. Depending on what shade you pick up, it lightens up dark areas, conceals hyperpigmentation and overall just conceals any problem areas you are concerned about. It too has the same lightweight, buildable formula that almost melts into the skin for a seamless and flawless finish. Set with a little powder, and it’s not going to settke into fine lines.
To help lock and set everything in place, try the new Revlon PhotoReady Candid Anti-Pollution Setting Powder. This incredibly silky-smooth, loose, finely milled and translucent setting powder will not only help create a natural airbrushed effect on the skin, it will actually help from the harmful pollutants (we love a double duty product). Its lightweight formula almost melts into the skin, blurring away imperfections without a heavy, powdery finish. It helps prolong the wear time of your makeup without looking cakey or mask-like.
Fresh face beauty with a touch of colour on the cheeks is all the rage right now. You want to create that flush cheek effect without looking like you’re wearing blush. Depending on your skintone, you may be able to skip the blush, and just double up on a highlighter. The new Revlon PhotoReady Highlighting Palette will not only amp up your glow, you can even use the slightly deeper shades on the apple of your cheeks. Bring that up towards your cheekbones for that all-in-one touch of radiance. Reach for “Sunlit Dream” palette to achieve a dewy, golden gleam without any shimmer. It allows you to add warmth to your cheeks and a luminous glow at the same time. You can easily achieve a sun-kissed glow that looks incredibly natural.
If you’ve always been a lipgloss kind of girl, you’re going to love this season’s dewy lip trend. To achieve this glossy, almost wet effect, try the new Revlon Ultra HD Vinyl Lip Polish. It features the rich pigmentation of a lipstick, the longevity of a liquid lipstick but with a high-shine, almost lacquer finish of a gloss. It’s the perfect hybrid between all three, in a non-feathering and bleeding formula. It delivers that glossy effect without being overly sticky or tacky. With its modern-day formula that’s nourishing and lightweight, you can now replace your goopy and sticky glosses.
