A lot of makeup looks on the runway can seem bold and experimental, not something you’d wear every day. But when I find a look that’s easy to recreate, I can’t wait to give it a try. In that regard, the latest New York Fashion Week did not disappoint. From berry lips to flushed cheeks, I’ve rounded up the top trends from Fall 2015 so that we can all recreate them at home.
And to get us extra inspired for the coming season, we’re giving away my entire fall beauty lineup! Check out my favs below and then enter to win.
This season, again designers are focusing on beautiful, healthy, dewy skin. The secret is to wear a great moisturizer underneath your foundation or a tinted moisturizer. It’s no surprise that one of my go-to products for daily moisture is Advocare SYS Day. This moisturizer is hypoallergenic, protects your skin from UVA/UVB, and nourishes your skin with vitamins C, D, E, and F. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had someone comment on how dewy and fresh my skin looks. I owe it all to this secret weapon.
My recommendation for foundation is Lancôme Nude Miracle. This foundation blurs imperfections, absorbs oil, and blends seamlessly for a second-skin, no-makeup look.
This season some designers created a flushed-cheek look, mimicking what a fashionista would look like after coming inside from a brisk walk in the winter cold. We’ve seen this trend in the past, but I have to admit…it never gets old!
My favorite product is benetint rose-tinted lip and cheek stain from Benefit. This stuff is amazing! Plus, you can use it for cheeks and lips. In my opinion, it’s important to go on the Benefit website to check how to apply since it’s a stain. But honestly, once you grasp the concept, it’s super easy!
Black eyeliner made itself known on the runway this season. I spotted heavy use in fashion shows like Marc Jacobs, Roberto Cavalli, and Oscar de la Renta just to name a few. In fact, there seemed to be a version for every woman―the classic beauty, the bombshell, and the bad girl.
The blackest kohl liner is applied just below the waterline (the top ridge of your bottom lid) and smudged at the lower lash line. This trick adds intensity and brings out the color of your eyes. I love Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner. This liner has a rich, creamy color that glides on smoothly with a complete smear-proof finish. It lasts for 12 hours without running or caking. Gotta love that, ladies!
Few beauty looks feel as sophisticated as those created with matte eye shadow. The issue with many matte shadows is that they can be chalky or give very little pigment. That’s not the case with Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette. The 12 (all-new!) shades are super creamy, resulting in a high-impact eye shadow that looks amazing. And I have to admit, I might be a little obsessed with the names given to each shadow. Free Spirit, Force of Nature, Multi-Tasker…I’m swooning!
Berry lips are it for the fall, but this time the secret is the stain effect. Once you choose your signature color for the season, build it up to something velvety. Finesse it with your fingers. It’ll give a “wind-burnt lips” look.
Lucky for us, there are choices in products. You could use the same as your cheeks, the benetint lip and cheek stain I mentioned above. Or you could go with a lipstick like Bite Beauty Frozen Berries Matte Crème Lipstick sold online or at Sephora. Bite Beauty has a wide range of berry colors that look amazing. They provide a gorgeous matte finish but still moisturize. Bite Beauty is a unique matte lipstick with pigments, powders, and Japanese silica that leave your lips with a velvety finish.
So here you have it, beautiful ladies, the 2015 fall beauty trends and must-have products!
