Fall Style Showdown: Makeup
Makeup artist Nicole Wittman gives Loop21 the top beauty trends for the fall.
Autumn is in the air, and with the change of season comes a change in style! Loop21 caught up with Hollywood makeup artist Nicole Wittman to get the insider tips on what makeup trends you'll want to try this fall.
Loop 21: What makeup trends are hot this fall season?
Nicole Wittman: We're seeing lots of winged-out cat eyeliner. Saturated indigo eye color splashed with glitter. Contouring the sockets with taupe tones create a polished look. Lips are drenched in bright pinks or defused with vamp like berries. Brows are defined and voluminous. Velvety skin finish the look.
Loop 21: Are there any specific trends that will become popular during the colder months?
Nicole: The feline eye is coming back. Exaggerated flicks of winged-out cat eyes will be popular.
Loop 21: What about the lips?
Nicole: Lips are the easiest way to make a statement this fall. The color is bright and bold, or vamp like stains. For lips deep berry stains or bright saturated lips in pink. As always burgundy reds are always in season for fall or pale lips that have been slightly over drawn. For eyes we're seeing saturated colors in indigo topped with glitter or coppery colors blended either into the crease or defused into the lash line. Metallic eye liners in silver or gold look great rimming the eyes. Cheeks for fall are left looking flustered in mixed hues of pinks and reds.
Loop 21: What is THE must-have in your makeup bag for fall?
Nicole: For eyes, liquid eyeliner from Urban Decay 24/7 in Perversion is a must-have. For lips, Obsessive Compulsive stained gloss in Rhythm Box, Jealous or New Wave. For your skin try Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer foundation in your appropriate color. For cheeks, must-haves include ream blush by MAC or Benefits Benetint. And for the best lashes use Dior Mascara in Dior show topped with Dior blackout.
