Makeup Trends Fall 2017

Colorful For Life

So a colorful fashion for fall has already been clarified, but same goes for the makeup life. Colorful eyeshadows and eyeliners are trending. Of course in traditional shape of powdery eyeshadows, but also creamier ones where the color is more intensified. Oscar de la Renta demonstrated this gorgeously. Vivienne Westwood also went colorful with a neon touch. Versus Versace went a bit smoky with a navy shade. Zadig & Voltaire went more artsy with gorgeous popping shades, like yellow.

1980s Natural Face

I know, a specific look for a 1980s natural face shouldn’t differ anymore from a regular natural face. But you know that Cindy Crawford natural look? With big bushy brows, lips with a slight intensified red shade and a bit bronzy face? Well, that look is accompanying the fashion trends of the 80s. Think healthy, natural and perfected features (like eyebrows but better, natural lip color but stronger). Marchesa, Calvin Klein and Tory Burch all worked this look in different versions.

Simple Statements

I don’t know if this is a reaction to the makeup on makeup looks that are everywhere, but for fall 2017, designers want us to stick to one statement. If you’re going for statement lips, let them be in focus. If you’re going for intensified eyes, leave them at that. Marc Jacobs went for a natural look with bold lips. So did Jason Wu with the perfect shade of red. La Perla went for heavy eyes and nude colored lips.

Artsy lines

TomeVersus Versace and Mulberry are only some of the designers that went for lines with an artsy statement. Not really in terms of a classic cateye, but random or exaggerated  lines in different colors. Perhaps something not for the everyday, but ever so gorgeous and artsy! Mulberry’s makeup look could pass for an everyday makeup look with the framing of the eyes though!

Refined 90s

I don’t care if I only noticed Derek Lam doing this, but oh my such a pretty look. The awkward bright blue shade from the 90s (often done with mauve lips: see here) – but in a refined version. The bright blue is beautifully blended, with a touch of metallic, and the mauve is changed to a glossy lip. And above all: the look is kept as natural as possible. Genius balance of the features! I can definitely go for the 90s makeup if the blue shade is that pretty.

  1. Wow seems like the upcoming season will be more than exciting – so many different looks to try!
    I am in love with the simple statements look – a bold lip and the rest “clean” – my kind of style 🙂

    xxx and have a great day babe ♥

  2. For once, I’m actually here for all of these trends! I love a natural look, and it’s one I lean towards more often than not. However, I’ve been getting really into bold colors and simple statement details for Spring. It’ll be fun to take those ideas into Fall!

  3. Refined 90s is a mellow version of the color trend it seems and nice to see it balanced out with the natural trend. I have just recently rediscovered blush after 20 years, and that is trending too.

    Oh my I love your snaps, you captured such wonderful moments here. And yes no sense in doing the big shindig until they are at least 7. Too young to appreciate it and will not remember.

  4. I’m all for simple statements when it comes to makeup! I love keep it simple and just adding a colored eyeliner in the spring!


    Tamara –

  5. Yesssss! I am loving the mixing of the hues at Oscar de la Renta and I am 100% going to be wearing the look out! I can finally use all those blue shades in my damn eyeshadow palette. I’m stuck with so many shades that I barely use and don’t know how to incorporate, so I’m happy that colorful makeup is in.

    I’m also excited about the Cindy Crawford natural look. It’s the perfect bombshell look!!

  6. Okay I am afraid to try some of these! I like the simple statement one. I think they all look awesome on the runway, but I am not every adventurous when it comes to makeup.

  7. I’ll have to say that I’m loving the ’80s natural look and the statement lip or eyes the most! I tend to sport a more natural look for the most part, only emphasizing the eyes with black liner on top and bottom. I like the idea of adding a contrasting color in a jewel tone, like teal, on the waterline come fall, instead of my typical black to switch it up a little. I don’t know how I feel about the blue shadow, though, haha. I think it’s one of those things that I admire on others and not so sure of on myself. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!



    1. That sounds lovely though, I think teal would suit you perfectly! Hahah you know what, I think that so might be the case for me too. I have endless of inspiration pictures saved with gorgeous makeup looks that I’d never be able to pull of myself – lol! Xx
