Spring is almost over and fall is just around the corner. It is time to say goodbye to those floral prints and pastel nails and say hello to ox blood red lips and those sultry smokey eyes. As we all know spring is all about bright and happy colors, beachy hair, sun tan and yummy snow cones. On the other hand fall is more about edgy and vampy colors, bonfires and hot chocolate with marshmallows. Since both the seasons are so much in contrast, there has to be a contrast in the way you do your makeup for each season too. So here are some makeup trends straight from the fashion runways that are sure to get you many compliments.

Thick eyebrows are so in trend right now. Supermodel Cara Delevingne is known for her strong eyebrows. You are very lucky if you have naturally thick eyebrows but if you are not so gifted you can still easily achieve this look. There is a huge variety of eyebrow pencils, wax, gel, powders, etc, available in the market. Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Wiz is a cult favorite and you have lot of shades to choose from. And if you don’t want to splurge that much on just an eyebrow product you can use a matte brown eyeshadow to fill in your brows and make them ramp ready.
* Fresh dewy skin

According to current runway trends, makeup artists are going for a clean and no makeup make up look. Fresh and dewy skin is what most of the makeup artists are going for. To get that dewy skin cleanse and moisturize your face well. Use a primer before putting on your foundation to make it last longer. Then use a foundation or BB cream to hide your little imperfections. But avoid using a matte foundation for this look. A highlighter can also be used to get that extra glow.

Ditch the contouring and opt for strobing this fall. For those who are not aware of what strobing is let me just give you a brief introduction about it. Strobing is a technique in which highlighter is used on the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, cupids bow, under the arch of your brow, above your eyebrow, etc, to provide definition to it and no contouring products are used. Strobing is similar to highlighting only difference being the amount of product used.
* Smokey eyes

Smokey eyes are here to stay for a very long time. And what season could be better to flaunt those sultry Smokey eyes than fall. Now, Smokey eyes can look very sexy if done correctly or turn out to be an utter disaster if you don’t blend the eyeshadows properly. Make sure you blend your eyeshadows well so that there are no harsh lines.
* Bold eyeliner
