After a hot summer of undereye blush, manga lashes, and statement liner, what could fall makeup looks possibly have in store for us? Luckily, Allure‘s got a crystal ball to help us look into the future and see all the upcoming beauty trends. OK, that “crystal ball” just so happens to be our super talented makeup artists friends. But what they’re telling is a dewy, delicate, and defined mug is what’s about to be poppin’ this fall season.
We don’t want to spoil all the trends just yet, but you can expect eye makeup to be dialed back to softer, more ethereal vibes. Lips, on the other hand, will most likely be punched up with bold hues and matte finishes, according to Alexandra French. You may have seen the Los Angeles-based makeup artist’s colorful looks on the faces of Fletcher, Chloe Cherry, Rina Sawayama, and Addison Rae — just to name a few.
For Los Angeles makeup artist David Velasquez, aka @MugOpus, who works with the likes of Chlöe Bailey, Latto, and Karol G, the makeup ideas for this season have a specific color scheme and finish in common. Bicoastal MUA Leo Chaparro was a bit more vague with his trend forecasts at first, though. “It’s hard to choose a singular category of what is most popular because there are so many different styles and expressions within beauty that become more favored than others,” he tells Allure. (After all, Chaparro has lent his talents to a myriad of celebrities like Lori Harvey, Salem Mitchell, and Emma Chamberlin, so he knows just how kaleidoscopic the makeup world is these days.) Luckily for us, Chaparro did give us a definite answer that you’ll just have to keep scrolling to find out about.
With these professional predictions in mind, we created a handy list to refer to for the coolest fall makeup looks, trends, and products when sweater weather comes around.
