Yes, and it’s perfect for fall!

Every season we get inundated with the latest beauty trends so today I wanted to focus on the latest and greatest fall eye makeup to update your look. From shadows to liners and lashes – everything you need to know that made an impact on the runway and is hitting cosmetic counters and drugstore shelves right now.  Remember, the key is not to supercharge your look – it’s not about going nuts with editorial false lashes and dramatic theater worthy makeup – it’s about a fresh new hue swept across your lids, perhaps a new placement of eyeliner.  New fall eye makeup trends are all about enhancing your natural beauty with some new more modern techniques and shades…  Consider subtle tweaks to your beauty regime – a new pencil or shadow can instantly revive your look and prepare you for the new season.  Check out some of my favorite fall eye makeup and get ready for the holidays with a fresh face!

1) METALLIC SHADOWS

Metallic shades of gold, silver, bronze even rose gold were crazy hot on the runway and can easily make their way into your own makeup kit.  Remember – you don’t have to go the full catwalk route – simply sweeping one of these hot new shadows across your lids – and perhaps a bit of gold in the inner corners of your eye can instantly update your look!

It may sound nuts – but a daytime smoky eye is more about neutral tones like brown and amber that give you that look and feel but in a far more subtle, wearable way.  Even that slightly slept in yet subtle smokey eye can work and add drama to your every day look.  This smokey eye can be created using some of the metallic hues from above and the great eyeliners you’ll see below.

Strong brows – not big masculine furry eyebrows, but just a slightly bolder brow – think the likes of Cara Delevingne or Brooke Shields’ classic look.  Still well manicured, just don’t be afraid of them being a bit fuller.  As a part greek girl with plenty of brows to spare, this trend brings me great happiness.

Super lashes are in, so time to invest in some new mascara and more is more these days.  It’s all about long spidery lashes – certainly on of my favorite looks.  You can do upper and lower lashes or just upper but don’t forget about using your eye lash curler and comb because you ant to focus plenty of attention on those luxuries lashes.

For the more brave and fearless now is a great time to experiment with color.  Everything from safer blues and greens to strong shades of purples and pinks dominated lots of runways for Fall and if you feel it – flaunt it.  Now is the time to experiment with new shades – you just might love it!
