There’s no need to fear this fall’s trends—they are neither exclusive nor intimidating. Among the highlights are radiant skin, red lips, and smoky eyes. Intrigued? Read on.
“The hard thing with makeup trends is that they don’t always work for everyone,” says Janell Geason, Aveda Global Artistic Director, Makeup. But this season’s looks are less about a prescribed aesthetic and more about creating the aura of a “woman who has lived a rich life,” says Janell. When it comes to color, that translates to deeper, richer shades, such as jewel-toned metallic eye shadows and crimson lipstick. If you’re uneasy about such an intense eye look, consider experimenting on lips or eyes, rather than both, says Janell.
