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.
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
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
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)
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
