Get the Runway Look: Fall 2013 Makeup Trends You Must Try




So many trends, so little time! If product overload and makeup trends are too much to sift through, don't worry, we got ya covered. Our resident makeup artist, Pascale Poma, has solved your fall beauty dilemmas and broken down the main trends to try for the cooler months. Our girl Pascale is a New York Fashion Week veteran, deep in the trenches of all things runway. Check out our interview below to learn all there is to know for Fall 2013 makeup, and click through the slideshow to see the looks models wore on the catwalk, that you can now take to the sidewalk.

So Pascale, what colors are going to be popular for autumn and winter?
Strangely enough, this fall won't really differ from spring/summer in the sense that nude, natural, minimal makeup is still going strong. We saw this on the runways at DKNY, Ralph Lauren and Tony Burch, with just enough drama here and there to make us still feel that we are actually going into another season. We will mostly wear colors like purple or indigo, best seen on the runway at Jason Wu. Burgundy will also be big, best showcased by Gucci. And orange and chocolate will adorn the eyes, which we saw at both the Prabal Gurung and BCBG shows with a classic red, tangerine or beige for the lips.

What eye makeup looks will keep us on trend? Do we go heavy or keep things light with liner?
This season, the eye is rather muted. We can look to the models at the Rick Owens show to see how subdued the liner will be this season, with the focus being on perfectly groomed but natural eyebrows and lashes.  

Will our eyeshadow palettes go darker?
No, palettes will not go darker. Rather, I would say they go warmer, more feminine and yet are still spectacular when paired with a strong cat eye. This classically elegant look was stunning at the Anna Sui show. The liner can also go a bit wider like the ones seen at Michael Kors, or metallic and sparkly as shown by Chanel. 

What about trends in lipstick for fall?
I have seen some gorgeous pouts in warm beige for Versace, stunning burgundy at Phillip Lim, magenta for Diane Von Furstenberg, and eggplant shades at Fendi. Still, there is always something to be said for the classically beautiful and timeless red, seen at Alice and Olivia, Carolina Herrera, and Marc Jacobs. But more than the colors, this year again, what really matters more than ever is the matte lip finish. 

How best to rock these looks? Should we wear them, all at once or no?

Like in most things, and especially when it comes to beauty, less is more to me. But for a special night out, go for the feline cat eyeliner, which will go perfectly with the sexiest red! The BWN story on how to choose the best shade of red lipstick comes in handy for this one. The key to this look is a flawless complexion. Otherwise, stick to either the lips or the eyes, playing up the feature you like to highlight the most.

Any additional tips and tricks?
After gently scrubbing your lips and moisturizing them, apply a beige concealer before applying your lip color. This will help even out the lips complexion and help the lipstick hold longer!
