Fall is one of my favorite times of the year…for makeup! The colors get darker, the products get lighter, and the gift sets get cheaper!

I am super excited for all the new releases this year. New releases like the MAC Selene Collection, releasing in October 2016, and the Urben Decay Ultimate Naked Basics palette releasing in September 2016. Let’s not forget the gift sets that offer a ton of product, without breaking your wallet like the Too Faced Christmas in New York Collection!

In the meantime, here are 5 trends that cropped up on the runways of fashion week!

1. Orange Eyeshadow

Orange eyeshadow was hitting big even before Kylie added the color to her eyeshadow palette. It’s the perfect complement to blue eyes and heated up the runway at NYFW. The Urban Decay Ultimate Naked Basics (cue the angels singing) houses a beautiful orange shade called Extra Bitter. It’s gold, but it’s orange. You can also get some orange action in NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette in Warm Neutrals. The colors in this palette are gorgeous gems perfect for fall.

2. Graphic Eyeliner

Colors to avant-garde lines, graphic eyeliner is big this fall! Reach for non-traditional colors this fall. Electric blue and burgundy liners were all over the runways at NYFW. Score the look using Laura Mercier Longwear Crème Eye Pencil or INGLOT AMC Eyeliner Gel.

3. Goth Lips

Dark gothic lip colors are all over the runways and blogger channels right now. Colors range from burgundy red to navy blue, to even black! Dare to be bold and sport it yourself. Go grab Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in Savage Garden if you want a gorgeous deep purple or Tarte Tarteist™ Lip Paint in Frenemy for the burgundy of your dreams.

4. Natural Dewey Skin

Let what momma gave you shine through. Natural looking skin will be in this fall and winter season. Grab a BB or CC Cream to get the look. We really like BareMinerals Bare Escentuals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, it’s hydrating, perfect for colder weather and gives your skin a beautiful finish. Or check out Smashbox Cosmetics Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream. If you love everything about a BB, but need a little extra help to fade dark spots, sun spots and post-acne marks, this CC’s for you.

5. Heavy Metals
metal-lipstick
Snag metallic colors and glitters for your eyes and lips. Almost every makeup brand has a “metal” lipstick out at the moment, but expand on it, and frost yourself from your lips to your eyes with glitter! For your eyes check out Urban Decay’s Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow. These liquid shadows are duo-chrome and also have GLITTER! For your lips grab Too Faced
Melted Metal Liquified Metallic Lipstick
. These metallic glosses will definitely need a lip liner, but are super awesome!

6. Highlighter
highlighter
Fall is more about the highlight than the contour, expanding on that natural dewy beauty. Add a little shine to your cheekbones and the tip of your nose to give yourself an ethereal glow. Our favorite highlighters are Benefits “Watts Up!” Cream-to-Powder Highlighter or Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight.
