Yesterday I asked on Instagram Stories what people are looking for this month on the blogs they’re reading, and makeup trends for fall came up a few times.
I’m not one to change up my makeup too much from season to season, but I do like to be apprised of what’s trending so I can stay looking current. I did a some Google research on makeup trends for fall 2019, and here’s what I found.
Of course, all trends must be weighed against what looks best on you. We all have different coloring and skin tones, and as we age, our makeup should become more subtle, so I tried to round up makeup trends for fall that most women should be able to wear.
6 Wearable Makeup Trends for Fall 2019
#1. rosy glow // This trend is inspired by the flush you get when there’s a chill in the air. To achieve this look, choose a blush in a rosy tone that works well with your complexion.
I just ordered Nars Amour to try. I’ve been wearing their iconic Orga$m color for years, and I generally wear it all year-round, but Amour is a bit deeper and richer, and I think it will be a nice change for fall.
2. mauve accents // Mauve makes a nice transition color because it’s more dramatic than the lighter summer shades but not as heavy as the deeper fall tones. You can wear mauve on your lips, nails, cheeks, and even your eyes.
CND makes a nail color called Married to the Mauve, which is one of my favorites for fall. I wear this on both my fingers and toes.
#3. rich red lips // Tread lightly here. As we age, conventional wisdom states that we should lighten up on our makeup — especially lipstick. I personally don’t like bold lipsticks because I have very thin lips, and it think bold colors accentuate that; but if you like to wear a bold lip, this fall is the time to do so!
If you’re into this look, Maybelline Color Sensational Ruby for Me is a good one to try.
#4. subtle smoky eyes // This is a trend I can always get behind. While I generally avoid bold lip colors, I love a good smoky eye, and I like the idea of going more subtle with it for an everyday look. Again, this works well with my coloring and features, so take that into consideration when deciding which trends to experiment with.
You can do a smoky eye with almost any palette, but after some research, I decided to try this Tartelette In Bloom Clay eyeshadow palette for a more subtle smoky eye. This palette contains some mauve shades, which incorporates that fall 2019 makeup trend into your eye shadow as well.
#5. natural brows // As we age, our eyebrows tend to get sparse, so penciling them in becomes more and more important. This year the trend is going towards more natural looking brows, which is awesome. I’m not a fan of super thick or super thin brows.
My favorite brow product is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil; I use the dark brown, but it comes in tons of shades. There is definitely something for everyone. It’s a retractable pencil, so you never have to sharpen it, and it has a brow brush on the other end.
#6. glossy lips // This one seems contradictory to #3, but of course there can be a variety of trends going on at once. I prefer glossy lips to the deep matte shades that are also trending, so I’ll be going with this one!
I usually wear a tinted gloss over my lipstick because the color lasts longer that way. My longtime favorite gloss is MAC Lipglass in Cultured, but it comes in lots of other shades as well.
