Autumn make-up. What’s trending this season? Velvety skin, as natural as it can be, pink blush and nude eye shadow – are all beauty trends that I love right now.
Compared to last years, this Fall is all about ROCKING that ‘no make-up make-up’. Something you can wear at home, in comfortable clothes while reading a book, but also at the office. For me a natural makeup will always win over a full face one. But it depends on everyone’s tastes in the end.
1. Pink/Red blush
A touch of pink will brighten up your whole face during a cold Autumn day. You can choose not to use foundation. Apply a small amount of concealer under your eyes and blend it carefully. Next choose your favourite blush. I personally prefer the pink shade for my cheeks. It brightens up your complexion and brings a touch of natural beauty.
Try to use a mousse blush for this – it works wonders! Apply it to the cheekbones – and Gigi Hadid’s trick is to actually apply a little bit on the sides of your forehead too – just like Jess did it in the first picture above. For final touch-ups, you can use mascara and a translucent brow gel.
Lips are a very important part of the final look. If you choose a bold contour and a dark colour, you can be provocative or mysterious. A pink lip gloss, on the other hand, will make you look more natural and feminine.
For a trending Autumnal look, play around with lipstick shades – from dark ones to more natural ones (lip pencils became my best friends). On your face, use a little concealer, contour, blush and a bit of highlighter. That way, the make-up you wear will be more natural and all the attention will be drawn to your sexy lips. This time, lipstick will be the STAR.
3. Brown on the waterline
Earth tones are really on trend lately, aren’t they? Well, besides brown jackets, sweaters, trousers and scarves, make-up artists now love to use brown shades when it comes to make-up. Just like I mentioned in the previous paragraphs, natural makeup is a trend this year. However, a little colour here and there never hurts.
Pick your favorite brown pencil and outline your waterline. Then apply a little colour under the eyes too. Spread the colour under your eyes with a thin brush. These are the steps to a natural makeup look that will make your eyes stand out. Brown compliments all eye colours, so this trend is suitable for everyone who wants to try it.
3. Pumpkin spice and everything nice
Orange can make any colour of eyes stand out. That’s why this Fall more and more people are wearing orange eyeshadow. Not only does it blend amazing with the whole Fall landscape, but it also fits in with the style of clothes being worn in 2021. Simple, yet affective, this look is one of my favourites.
You can add some highlighter here and there. By the way, I don’t think it would hurt to draw freckles either. I did that for the first time this Summer and I am hooked!
4. Bold red
Red lipstick will always be a classic. One of the trendiest combinations this season is eyebrow gel and red lipstick. Red is a colour that represents elegance and femininity. You can wear this everywhere! However, I personally love how red lips looks for events or when I go out in the evening.
I actually prefer liquid lipstick – the Sephora Liquid Lipstain and Jeffrey Star’s Liquid Lipsticks. You can use any type you like – for matte lipstick I can recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills. Also, remember to draw your lips. Your make-up should be simple and natural with a great emphasis on the bold lips.
5. Green smokey
When it comes to Autumn make-up, I find this mossy green eyeshadow very fun. It perfectly fits with the whole idea of coziness. It can even be messy. Apply the eyeshadow to your eyelid and complete your look with black mascara. For a bolder look, you can also add a touch of black on the waterline. Your eyes will stand out. Besides, your whole look will be messy casual with a hint of tomboyishness. Be creative but comfortable at the same time.
Autumn make-up this year is something different, believe me. Which one is your favourite? Slide in my Instagram DM’s (@notagirlygal) and let me know.
Until next time,
