Must Try Fall Makeup Trends of 2016

With the start of every season comes a new color palette, new vibes and new makeup trends. Whether you love the no-makeup makeup look or you experiment with any product you can get your hands on, push your limits with glitter and dark colors this fall!


Glitter has made its way out of the craft bin and into our makeup collection in a major way. While neutrals are great and timeless, glitter eyes and lips are having their moment.

Using glitter or metallic eye shadows is a sure fire way to turn heads this fall. This type of look can deliver edgy of Old Hollywood glam vibes.

Although it may not seem very wearable or realistic, glitter lips have hit the mainstream, too! A glitter lip can completely transform your look – just be mindful of the glitter transfer when kissing!

Dark Lips

Deep, dark colored lips is by far one of the most classic fall makeup looks – and definitely one of my favorites! This type of look is typically associated with ’90s grunge, but paired with a classic flawless face, this definitely looks very feminine.


Soft Smoky Eyes

Let’s face it, smoky eyes are great for all seasons. The soft smoky eye is subtle, sexy and easy to create. Simply blend your favorite brown eye shadow into your upper lash line and diffuse the color into your crease.

Fresh Skin

Healthy looking skin with natural highlights is back. This season you’ll see less super matte and overly contoured looks, but will see a lot of creamy, dewy looks.

Of course, there are plenty of other extreme makeup trends out there right now, like charcoal lids and clumpy lashes, but these are some of my favorites that I can actually see myself trying. I may not put glitter on my eyes or lips, but I would definitely use a more metallic or shimmery eye shadow on date night with my boyfriend.

3 Makeup Trends to Try: Summer 2016

Now that the weather is getting warmer, we all feel a little more free spirited and boho chic – at least I do! Whether you want to go all out with glitter or do subtle contouring, there’s a summer makeup trend that’s right for you.

Non-Touring: This is honestly my favorite trend. Rather than having a heavy contour, non-touring is soft and subtle. The face doesn’t look extremely matte or dry, but it still gives the face structure and definition. It’s perfect with lighter foundation and looks a lot more natural.

Baking or Sandbagging: Summer often brings sweaty, oily T-zones and melted makeup, but with baking or sandbagging soaks up all the extra grease to leave a matte finish, smooth finish. All you need to do is cake loose powder under the eyes and lips to soak up the oil and brush the rest off!

Glossy Lids: Thanks to Marilyn Monroe, we have this excellent makeup trend – glossy lids were her fave and now they’re all the rage. Simply dab some lip gloss or Vaseline on your lids for that glossy, glowy look.

Out of all the latest and craziest makeup trends out there, these are my favorite and the most practical to try with my lifestyle. What are some of your favorite makeup trends this summer?

Beauty Trends that Rule 2016

Last year focused on all the crazy ways to contour, clown contouring and contouring with kitchen utensils, but this year’s makeup is all about going natural.

Smoky Eyes

Smoky eyes are timeless. There is nothing sexier than a dark and or mysterious eye look to compliment any outfit. A perfect example of a gray smoky eye is Huda Kattan’s look.

Shimmery and Glittery Shadows

Adding glitter and shimmer to your eye lids is the perfect way to glam up your outfits this year.

Brushed-Up Brows

Rather than the sculpted and carved brows we’ve been used to, this year is about brushing up your brows to make them look fuller and fluffier.

Big and Beautiful Lips

Thanks to Kylie Jenner and other beauty icons, neutral and classic lip shades are coming back in a big way.

Subtle Contouring

Rather than going all out and contouring your whole face, try focusing on accentuating certain areas. Choose your cheekbones, jawline, nose, or forehead to look more natural.

Beauty trends change constantly and beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I love these trends and I’m hoping to incorporate them into my style. What trends will do you like? What will you try this year?
