5 Fall Runway Trends Made Wearable

If you’re anything like me, you probably drool over the high-fashion photos of Gigi and Kendall walking the runway draped in Balmain and Versace. What I wouldn’t give to stroll into my 11am economics class wearing sky-high heels, head-to-toe metallic, and gold glitter up to my eyebrows without everyone staring at me like I have three heads. Alas, I suppose I’ll settle for my favorite pair of skinnies and a more subtle take on the fall makeup trends. Keep reading to see how I turn these daring trends into everyday looks to make the crosswalk feel like the catwalk.

Metallic Errthang

For me, this one was easy; I love a good metallic shine to make my eyes pop. For a wearable metallic look, sweep the sparkles just over the inner 3/4 of your lid and add a matte shadow to your crease. Copy this warm copper shade seen at Christian Siriano and you’re fall-ready!

Product Pick: Tarteist Metallic Shadow in Scandal

Edgy Eyeliner

This look gives me serious Avril Lavigne vibes and I’m living for it, honestly. To recreate Gigi’s bold black liner from the Versace show, use a piece of Scotch tape along the outer corner of your eye to make a sharp line, then use a black gel liner to make a sharp wing. Take a tiny blending brush to smoke out the liner before it dries, and you’ve got yourself a grungey, but simple and wearable liner look!

Product Pick: Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

Classic Berry Lips

This classic fall look made a comeback on the La Perla runway, and it’s one of the easiest to recreate. Start with a fresh face, minimal eye makeup, and a bit of mascara, then add a berry hue to your pout. Voila! You’re basically Kendall Jenner.

Product Pick: Nyx Full Throttle Lipstick in Night Crawler

Electric Eyes

This orange shade keeps popping up everywhere, which is good for us, because it’s one of those brights that you can use as a neutral. Take a burnt orange shade and blend it over your lid and up through your crease to mimic this look from the J JS Lee runway show.

Product Pick: Anastasia Eyeshadow Single in Realgar (also in the Modern Renaissance palette)

Spidery Lashes

Normally, I’m so against the clumpage, but this look from MSGM is making me rethink everything. Apply a heavy coat of a clumpy and lengthening mascara to both your upper and lower lashes, then keep the rest of your look minimal.

Product Pick: Maybelline Spider Effect Mascara
