Friday Fashion Debate: Makeup Trends

It’s so hot here in Florida that I can’t even think about putting on a cute fall sweater or a pair of boots. However, I do think it’s time to start looking out for what fashion experts expect to see in the Fall. So today, we start with Fall 2016 makeup trends .

Monique Lhuillier
The first makeup trend we can expect to see is what they are referring to as Blackout Nicole Miller
. There are variations on this idea but for the most part, I am not a big fan.  The picture to the right, I am good with. A thick wing liner on top looks bold without being over the top. The one on the left I am not loving. It gives that raccoon eye effect and I don’t find that flattering. Then it gets even worse when you add in black shadow. You actually become a Sacai
raccoon when you do it that way. Let’s leave the animal looks to our snapchat filters!

The next makeup trend coming about is called, Modern Gothic. This is mostly in relation to lipstick colors. It is not surprise that dark shades Dior
are a widely loved look in the past year or so but this year the trend pushes that idea a bit. Pairing barely there eye Bottega Veneta 
makeup with an almost black lip is what gives this trend a modern twist on the Gothic style. I personally prefer something a little less dark on the lip with a nice glow on the skin like the image on the left instead of the full Gothic look like the one on the right but that is just my personal preference.

The last makeup trend I want to mention today is GLITTER! If you have read past posts, you know I enjoy sparkle. Glitter eye makeup is making it’s comeback! You definitely Good news: Glitter is definitely for grown-ups—if only because kids could never master the sophisticated ways in which it showed up on the runways. Sparkle was at its most wearable at Tommy Hilfiger (left), where Pat McGrath topped off a taupe smoky eye with light sprinkling of gold, done in new ways—brow bone highlighter! tear drops!—at Giambattista Valli and Burberry and at its absolute fiercest at Anthony Vaccarello, where Tom Pecheux gave us the wild idea to cut apart our jewelry and affix it to our face. Hey, why not?
can take glitter too far but I think a little shine in your life is exactly what every girl needs. 🙂 On the right is an example of a glitter addition that I think is tasteful and sweet. I don’t think we necessarily need to all go out and buy turquoise blue glitter shadow but a bit of neutral sparkle can jazz up any look.

That’s all I have for you today! Happy Friday!!
