Makeup: 5 mega trends for fall/winter 2020-21

This season is all about revisiting the classics! The proof? Check out these three trends spotted on the hottest runways!

DISCREET RADIANCE

Collection: Alberta Ferretti, Michael Kors

Natural makeup is still the rage, with a focus on flawless complexion and healthy skin. This fall, why not put your own personal touch on the look with a soft, autumn glow! Just blend a hint of illuminator in strategic spots (like the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your eyebrow bones, etc.). Then complete the effect with a touch of brown mascara and some sheer lip gloss. It’s fast, easy and effective!

 

DISCREET RADIANCE

Pssst! If you’re using a liquid illuminator, you can get the same effect by blending a few drops into your favourite moisturizer.

ULTRA-PIGMENTED SCARLET RED

Collection: Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta

Red lips haven’t had their last word yet!  After last year’s carmine comes the intense scarlet, bursting with life and the star of the fall season!

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK…

Lipstick is the focal point of minimalist makeup. Black eyeliner, mascara, translucent foundation: pay special when applying each one. For a clean, sharp look, take the time to outline the lips with a well-sharpened lip-liner then spread the lipstick with a brush starting from the centre, moving outwards. If you’re going for that slightly imperfect look, apply your lipstick straight from the tube then use a brush to correct any glaring flaws.

ULTRA-PIGMENTED SCARLET RED

PRO TIP

The key to a perfectly pouty pucker? Taking proper care of your lips. Make sure you exfoliate regularly with a facial-care product or, even better, with a formula specifically designed for your lips. Then treat them to some deep nourishment with a rich balm. If you’re applying the balm just before the lipstick, make sure you remove the excess with some facial tissue to ensure better hold.

VARIATIONS ON THE SMOKEY EYE

Collection: Alice & Olivia

A smokey eye doesn't have to look dark or dreary, and this season will prove it! Sure, ebony and anthracite eyelids are still popular, but many women will be turning to bronze or golden shades for a lighter effect, or using brighter, more vibrant shades like emerald green or blue. Whatever your preference, make sure you choose iridescent or glitter finishes for that slightly moistened look.

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK…

Start by spreading a light shade of the chosen colour over your entire eyelid, then use a darker shade to outline your upper lashes. Next, apply the colour with a small blending brush, using upward movements—you don't want to make your eyes look heavy! Apply the same colour along your lower lashes if desired to help ensure a clean, precise effect.

VARIATIONS ON THE SMOKEY EYE

PRO TIP

To give your eyes a more wide-open, radiant look, finish by applying a touch of pale makeup—Champagne, beige, white, etc. - under your eyebrow and in the inner corner of your eye. Your eyes will shine!

POP ART CAT’S EYES

Collection: Miu Miu, Charlotte Knowles, Christian Dior

We’re all familiar with the cat’s eye: that precise line of eyeliner that stretches from the top lashes all the way to the outside of the eyes. This time around, the iconic cat’s eye gets a pop art makeover that’s both intense and playful. So, get ready to be daring! Just extend the line further to accentuate the effect and underline the lower eyelid as well. And try adding a little coloured eye shadow...  Anything goes.

POP ART CAT’S EYES

Pro tip

The secret to a perfect cat's eye? First draw the "comma" at the corner of your eye, then work along your lash line from the inside outwards, while pulling lightly on the eyelid, until the line is done. Meow!

BLURRED LIPSTICK

Collection: Fendi, Marc Jacobs

By now, we all know how to blur our lips perfectly: we dab a small amount of lipstick to the centre of our lips then blend it in using our finger or a sponge applicator. But this fall, we're going to use the same technique, only with more concentrated colours. Think bold, assertive shades, like red or eggplant. The result? A beautifully blurry effect, with imperfect contours and a look of carefully crafted insouciance!

BLURRED LIPSTICK

Pro tip

To ensure a smooth canvas for your colour, make sure you moisturize your lips carefully by coating them with balm every night, and be sure to give them a good exfoliation once a week.
