Fall for a bold face

Bold makeup was all over on the Fall 2011 runways and here are some of the bold makeup trends that you could easily incorporate into your fall makeup.

Trend : Graphic Eyeliner

Graphic eyeliner is a major trend for fall and is the easiest way to transform your look and go the dramatic way without using a whole lot of other products.  Here are some pictures from the runways for inspiration.

If you love the traditional cat eye look but looking for something edgier but not overdone, these below looks from Instyle might just be what you are looking for. They are innovative and edgy but still wearable. Try the double sided cat eye look for a rock and roll vibe, thick squared-off edge for a modern rebel look or the open wing for a innovative fresh appeal. For instructions click here.


 Double Sided
 Squared-off corner
Open wing

Lining your eyes is not a hard skill to perfect but if you think it is then you could always try the New Dior Velvet Liner Patches (watch the video below). These patches are easy to apply, adjustable and create dramatic eyes to turn heads. You can try to wow the crowd with the sleek matte black cat eye or up the drama with their lavish line covered in Swarovski crystals.


Trend: Red Lips
Red lips is another major trend for fall and easy to adopt. This trend was popular on the Fall 2011 runways and some of the designers who adopted this look include Nanette Lepore, Betsey Johnson, Cynthia Steffe, Lela Rose, Diane von Furstenberg, Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren. You could go for the orange-reds, berry-reds or the wine-reds. Pair it up with other trends such as spider lashes, vibrant colored liners, smokey eyes or metallic lids. Here are some of my favorite looks from the runways.

 Ralph Lauren
  Jil Sander
 Miu Miu
 John Galliano

Metallic Lids
Another popular trend that was seen on the Fall 2011 runways that you could easily adopt for this Fall is Metallic lids. Here is a video to help you achieve the look. 

Favorite pictures from the runways for inspiration. 

  Jason Wu

Orange Eye
This trend was another popular trend we saw on the Fall 2011 runways. It ranged from very bright as seen on Thakoon to much more subtle and pretty as seen on Donna Karan and Rodarte. I prefer the lighter versions. Here are some pictures for inspiration.

Which bold makeup trend excites you the most? Are you interested in trying some bold makeup for fall?  Would love to hear your views.

    Those models look great, but I’m not sure I could pull off any of those looks! Those looks are too bold for me!

    wanna try some graphic eyeliner 🙂


  14. September 29, 2011 at 5:56 am

    Those are some major eye works and lip works. Very nice picks.

  15. September 29, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    These are all so pretty. I think my favorites are the deep red lips from Gucci and Altuzzara. I also love that metallic eyelids trend.

    Love the graphic eyeliner. I’ve always tried to do that but alas, can’t ever manage to be successful. Using liquid liner to simply rim my eyes is the best I’ve got, but I’ll keep trying!
