How to pull off the fall's biggest beauty trends
Yes, you CAN rock a spidery lash.
Metallic eye shadow
This look was seen on the Alexis Mabille Fall 2017 runway. She's definitely making a statement, but you wouldn't necessarily wear this amount of metallic shadow to the supermarket.\
A more accessible way to wear this trend is to use a gold metallic eyeshadow. It's one of those shades that looks great on everyone, and all skin tones. Instead of wearing it all over the lid, which can be a bit much especially for daytime, try wearing it as an eyeliner. Simply run your finger into the product and then press and pat the shadow along the top and bottom lash line.
Black artsy eyeliner
This artsy black eyeliner was used a lot, like a lot a lot, on the models at the Marni 2017 fall fashion show. It's not subtle. We saw loads of black eyeliner on the top and bottom lash line, even in the crease. This model is taking the strong smokey eye to another level. Here's how to get this look without being asked to leave the office.
A more wearable way to rock black eyeliner all around the eye is to do the tightliner technique. Take a black eyeliner pencil and apply it right along the base of the lashes. Gently lift your eyelid up and apply it right along the inside of both the top and bottom waterline. This fills in any gaps between the lashes so it makes them look fuller and longer. It's a subtle way to bring a lot of impact to the eye area.
The segmented/spidery lash trends was all over the runways. It's seen here at the Jeremy Scott show. This model is giving us a really intense Twiggy vibe. Lashes were overloaded with black mascara, meant to look clumpy and spidery especially on the bottom lashes, where false lashes were used to make them look even more segmented. Here's how to do this in a subtle way, before a night out.
Apply one coat of a volumizing black mascara as you normally would. Then with the tip of the wand remove the excess at the tip. Then gently separate your lashes into small, clumpy sections. For the bottom lashes, hold a tissue under your lashes, to prevent mascara from getting on your skin, then again, with the tip of the wand, apply the mascara until it looks nice and full.
Red is the power color for fall, which means you're going to see this berry colored lip everywhere. The models at the Giambattista Valli show rocked this vampy look with a twist, a sort of a patchy/imperfect finish. They ditched the lip liner to create sort of a messy edge that looked faded and imperfect, to try and emulate what your lipstick would look like after kissing someone. Here's how to recreate this lip at home.
A more wearable way to rock this look is to make it look just slightly imperfect. Apply your lipstick like you normally would, straight from the tube. Then after you've applied your lipstick, take your finger and gently smudge out the edges around the lip line, so that it doesn't look perfectly defined. To create the worn out effect take, a cotton swab and dip it into olive oil. Olive oil is a heavy oil, so it's good at removing makeup. Gently rub it in the center of your lips to remove some of the product. This will give your lips sort of an ombre effect, but without having to do all the work.
