Because curious minds want to know, we recently interviewed celebrity makeup artist Tia Dantzler whose worked with some of Hollywood’s finest – Jennifer Hudson, Viola Davis, Angela Smith and Michelle Williams to name a few about fall beauty trends.
Here’s what she had to say…
Q: What can we expect this fall when it comes to trends in colors and textures?
A: As the weather begins to cool down, so does your beauty regimen. Gone are the bright lips and shimmery shadows however don’t put your bronzers and metallic shades away just yet. This season’s makeup trends are all about radiant, glowing skin, hints of metallic to splashes of electric hues to rich, warm shades of copper, gold, green and navy. This season it’s truly about having fun and making an impact.
Q: Smoky eyes are always a big trend in the fall. How can we rock the smoky eye with a twist?
A: Black is back this season and it’s bolder than ever and you can’t go wrong with using Fashion Fair Eye Shadow in Noir as it’s one of the most intensely pigmented black eye-shadows around. The cat eye and smoky cat eye debuts again this season in many variations to suit your mood. You will want to invest some great makeup wipes when perfecting the traditional black smoky eye. Try Almay Oil Free Makeup Remover Towelettes ($5.99, drugstore.com)
Q: What are the must have lip colors for the season?
A: There’s something so glamorous about a dark lip when paired with a smoky or nude eye. It’s a classic trend that never gets old. Lips are easily your most popular statement piece especially when BOLD, admired and adorned with shades of berry, bordeaux and of course, nude shades. We love Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick in Violet Volt.
Q: Nail trends don’t show any signs of slowing down. How can we make our tips and toes stand out for fall?
A: There’s an explosion of both color and graphic nail art that will be shown on tips this season. Old school pale nails are also making a comeback for the barely there look. Nails tips will be adorned in jewel-toned garnet, various shades of gray and yummy metallics in gold and silver. So push your cuticles back, and get ready to be inspired!
Fall cannot get here fast enough in our opinion. What trends have you ready to kiss summer goodbye?
