Top Makeup Trends for Fall 2016


From the runway to the hallway, here are the top makeup trends for fall 2016 and our tips for wearing these looks on a daily basis. This season, it's all about balancing a fresh, clean palette with bold lips and sultry eyes.

Sultry Eyes

Fall Makeup Trends Robert Cavalli | IMAXTREE

HOW TO WEAR THIS LOOK: For the perfect bedroom eyes, grab your favorite pair of eyeliner, like Urban Decay's Eye Pencil, and smudge baby, smudge. Keep it slightly imperfect -- as if you woke up like this the morning after.

Gothic Chic

Fall Makeup Trends Bottega Veneta | IMAXTREE

HOW TO WEAR THIS LOOK: The vampy look isn't new, but it's getting a makeover this season. This season, keep the vampy lips looking fresh & plump with a hydrating formula like Bite Beauty's Amuse Bouche Lipstick. You should look as if you've been sipping wine, and you're ready to be kissed.

Grown-up Glitter

Fall Makeup Trends Tommy Hilfiger | IMAXTREE

HOW TO WEAR THIS LOOK: Why, yes, it is possible to wear glitter like a grown-up! The key to wearing glitter is to prime your eyelids first, and then, apply a beautiful foil eyeshadow using a very light touch. It should look naturally glamorous as if you just left the midnight ball -- not the school dance.

Glow, Girl 

Fall Makeup Trends DKNY | IMAXTREE

HOW TO WEAR THIS LOOK: For a lit-from-within-glow, forgo the foundation and reach for an illuminating BB cream instead. Add a touch of blush and lip balm, and viola! You'll look impossibly fresh, natural, and glowing.

Peaches & Cream

HOW TO WEAR THIS LOOK: Think of the peachy look as the no-makeup-look version 2.0. For this look, use peachy shades to add subtle depths to your eyes, cheeks, and lips. Aim for hints, not flushes, of colors. You should look radiant and healthy.

Bright & Bold Lips

HOW TO WEAR THIS LOOK: Nothing inspires confidence like bright and bold lips. Exfoliate your lips, grab your favorite red lipstick, and apply with precision. Red lipstick should look every bit as perfect as the woman that's wearing it.
