5 Fall Makeup Trends You Can Wear in Real Life
It’s never too early to start planning for fall (we may or may not have had our cosy knits on standby since mid-July), and when it comes to makeup, autumn marks the beginning of a sleeker, more refined look. Shimmery bronzer is traded in for rosy cheek tints, while bare lips and lids dip into moody hues like burgundy and navy. We spoke with Maybelline’s global makeup artist Yadim and asked him to share his beauty forecast for the season’s most wearable runway makeup trends.
From smoky lips to Bardot-inspired eyes, keep flipping for five of fall’s prettiest trends!
Nothing says more fall than a lush, fluttery fringe. “Say hello to Brigitte Bardot 2.0,” Yadim says. “This modern take on the ‘60s bombshell focuses on the eyes, framing them with thick, Bambi-like lashes on both the top and bottom.”

To fake fuller brows, take a brow pencil (we love the Perfect Brow Pencil ($23) by Anastasia Beverly Hills) and draw short, light strokes in the direction of your natural brows, then blend it out with a clean spooly.

Sculpt your cheekbones even more by adding highlighter as part of the equation. “Sometimes, an obvious sheen and highlight complete the topographical effect, but shading and shadowing was always very present [on the runways], and faces were never flat,” Yadim says.

“Bold blue brings a welcome jolt of positive energy to colder, darker days,” Yadim says. He recommends Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ($7) in Tenacious Teal to recreate the metallic glint of blue at Anna Sui.

For the perfect glint of blue, try layering a liquid liner over your pencil liner—we picked up this tip from makeup artist Melanie Inglessis on the set of our sister site’s shoot with actress Bella Thorne.
