With fall in full swing, it’s probably time to start transitioning your makeup routine. Colder months call for layering, moisturizer and maybe a little less highlighter (okay, probably not). You can now safely return to your full coverage foundations without worrying they’ll melt off your face, and dark, burgundy lips look irresistibly chic and on trend this time of year. This fall, we’re predicting a few beauty trends and suggesting products to make them your own.
Rule of thumb: Basically everything from the ‘90s is cool again — except pencil thin eyebrows and Delia’s. Nineties makeup was all about brown lipstick, gloss and glittery eyeshadow. All of those things are now so 2017, and with everyone going ‘90s crazy, it’s easier than ever to get the look. We suggest trying one of these at a time, starting with brown lips.
Finally, something for the girl who doesn’t want 100 steps in her makeup routine — or does and just wants it to look effortless. Minimalist makeup is all about the effortless glow, and putting your skin front and center. The no-makeup makeup look has been going strong for a while now, and it continues to dominate in 2017. To get that I-woke-up-like-this glow, try NYX Professional Makeup Dose of Dew — it’s legit light in a bottle.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock — or on MySpace — you know that holo is back in full force. It is no longer the hue of our childhoods: It has made its way into everything from nail polish to makeup, and we’re pretty much obsessed. This trend can be tricky to nail down for everyday, so it’s good to start subtle and work your way up. The best way to do this? A highlighter. We’ve been loving products with duochrome shifts that pick up different colors depending on the light. To get the look try the Urban Decay Naked Skin Highlighter — the colors are insane.
We’ve been seeing metallic makeup everywhere thanks to beauty giants like Pat McGrath — she basically breaks the internet anytime she drops a new product. Right now, we’re loving metallic eye looks and nude lips — even though we don’t object to going bold all over your face, too. This look is not for the faint of heart or the girl who wants to swipe something on and go; it takes a little time and effort — perfect for the beauty babe whose makeup routine is the highlight of her day. Try the Maybelline Master Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Eyeliner for an extra pop of color.
Poppin’ Lip Gloss
Lil’ Mama was onto something all those years ago: Poppin’ lip gloss really is the key to life. The right lip gloss is life changing, and it all comes down to the formula. We love glosses with high shine, that are non-sticky and wear off gracefully. We’re currently loving the IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss –– the formula is incredible.
Beauty guru Melachild raving about glosses is basically all of us for fall 2017.
