The hottest makeup trends for the fall and winter of 2017 seem to all have one thing in common – drama! Here’s the run down of the makeup colors and techniques you need to try.
Bold lined eyes take center stage to create a look of mystery and intensity.
Two Tone Eyeliner
Mix it up with two different colors that contrast one another. Try two colors on the upper lid or one color on the upper and the other on the lower lid.
For intense and sultry eyes, try a thicker, yet slightly smudged black liner all the way around the eye. Smudge your liner or add a bit of black shadow under it.
Dramatic Winged Liner
Try a winged-out cat eye that extends about half of an inch past the end of your upper lid and then turn the stroke slightly upwards at the end.
Eyeshadow colors are fun and intense this season. The runways are filled with bright blues, metallics, and reds for a playful and creative look.
This shadow technique features a pronounced “cut” in the crease of the eye. It highlights and exaggerates the shape and size of the eyes, makes your eyes look bigger, and also looks very sophisticated, even if you’re not using any mascara.
Enhance your smokey eye look with a pop of color on the middle of the top lid. Try a dab or gold or silver on the inner corners of your eyes to add a little glam.
Noticable Lower Lashes
This Twiggy-inspired look is a spin on the 1960’s mod, big baby-doll lashes. Draw vertical “lashes” with a pencil on your lower lid, tapering the line as you draw down and finish by adding lots of mascara to both the top and bottom.
Bold color lips are all the rage! Ruby, garnet, dark plum, blood red, and maroon. Have fun and vamp it up this season!
