Fall 2014 Makeup Trends

Hi! Hope this message finds you in the best of health and spirits today! 

FALL is here! Well, almost. The leaves haven’t changed or anything but once I get the September issues of the fashion mags, I jump into fall mode. LOL! Although summer will always be my favorite, I will always love the beauty of the fall colors. I love fall clothing and all the cool shoes introduced in the fall. But most of all the fall MAKEUP colors are Penny’s passion!

Metallic Lips and Eyes
Now, we can’t all pull off the looks on the runway at NY Fashion Week…but why would we want to? Penny says find your own look! Trends are fun…but they are just trends…customize something and make it your own!  I have my own runway (and drum beats in my head…LOL), so when I want to strut my stuff this season I will gravitate toward some of these cool 2014 fall looks and customize them for what looks best on moi. [NOTE: Be sure to check out ‘PennysPenchant’ on Pinterest for more photos].

  • Metallic Touches – silver, bronze eye shadows and liners; especially smudged along the bottom lash line. (e.g. MAC Eyeliner in Phone Number; MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy; Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadow in the Leather Collection)
    Tight-line; lower lash line
    Lined Looks – Tight lining; line bottom water line. Winged liner looks are still in this season too but Penny can’t pull that one off. J  (e.g. NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner pencil in Via Veneto; a Penny fave)
  • Smoky Eyes – Yes…these are here to stay. Smoky Brown Eyes; Smoky Plum Eyes (e.g. Revlon Eye ShadowLinks in Cocoa, Taupe & Onyx; Make Up For Ever Matte Shadow in #165 and #17; Benefit Longwear Powder Eye Shadow in Kiss me I’m Tipsy, and Gilt-Y Pleasure; and black or chocolate eyeliner of your choice)
  • Metallic Touches – Brown, Bronze, Burgundy (e.g. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Deborah w/ Larger than Life Gloss in Rouge Tribal)
  • Bold Lips and Soft Smokey Eyes
    Red Lips – Deep red; mixed hues; try a plum or wine liner with your tried and true red lipstick and blend well. (e.g. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Jeanne); your classic reds also work
  • Vampy Lips – This is a fall ‘classic’ so you probably already have deep plums, wines, and burgundy lipsticks and glosses in your arsenal. (e.g. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Chocoliscious; Penny’s fave is  Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Prayer or Homegirl)
  • Bright Lips – If you are not a fan of dark lip colors enhance the bright colors of the spring/summer collections. For example, the Pantone Color of the Year (Radiant Orchid) can be used with a darker liner (blend well). Or you can use a medium brown or rust liner with your orange lipstick to give it a darker hue. (e.g. Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Liner in, Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick in Jilted)
 (...see full story)

  • Glow Getter – flawless skin; subtle blush (e.g. MAC Blush in Tenderling; NARS Blush in Deep Throat)
  • Bare Minimum – Nude-looking faces; monochromatic looks; match your neutral eye shadow with a blush and lipstick in the same or closely similar shade. (e.g. MAC Blush in Buff; Dolce and Gabbana Blush in Nude)
Bonus Looks:
Full Brows – Thicker brows made a comeback this year. Penny’s fave brow products:
Full Brows
  •          Anastasia Brow Wiz
  •          Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel
  •          bareMinerals Brow Powder
Nude Palette – Penny loves that ‘nudes’ are still in this season. Love this clean, fresh faced look. Here are some suggested products to get your nude:
  • L’Oreal Colour Riche Privee Collection lipsticks; celebrity-inspired nude shades
  • Maybelline 'The Nudes' Eye Shadow palette
  • Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick in Naked 2 or  Liar
  • Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner in Nude
  • Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balm Blush
  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Sandstone
  • Urban Decay’s Naked,  Naked 2 Basics or Naked 3 Eye Shadow Palettes
Trends that are not for Penny are the severely winged out eye liner; the bold bright colored eyeliner and/or shadows; and the 60s inspired spider lash mascara look. But hey…if you can pull these off…Penny says, ‘may the force be with you!’ LOL!

What are you looking forward to wearing this fall?
Be blessed. Be beautiful.
