5 Fall Makeup Trends We Can’t Get Enough Of!

If you hang around students and staff at Avenue Five Institute’s makeup program in Austin, you’re sure to hear about the latest fall makeup trends. From brilliant shades of glittery-orange eyeshadows to vampy merlot lips, we can’t get enough of this year’s hottest looks.

1. Vamp Up Your Lips

Embrace shorter days and longer nights by paying tribute to the breed of mystical beings that appreciates shorter days and longer nights more than anyone… the vampire. Bold merlot-colored lipsticks will help you feel untouchably sexy, kind of like a vampire. Plus, it’s the perfect color for fall. Matte red lipsticks are equally popular right now. Some of our favorite go-to red lipsticks include Lady Bug and Lucky by MUD Cosmetics.

Metallic is taking over everything from home design to fall makeup trends. There are so many ways to add pops of metallic to your makeup. From a sweep of silver beneath the eyes, to a touch of copper mid-lid, there are so many ways to play on the metallic trend. There are many shades of metallic; play around to find the hue that best suits your beautiful face.

4. Thick & Full Eyeliner

From Versace to Ellie Saab, countless top-notch designers are making bold statements with eyeliner at the latest fall fashion shows. And it appears some of the biggest makeup artists couldn’t agree more.

Eyeliner is getting thicker and bolder than ever before and it certainly doesn’t have to be black or brown. Check out @cece_biggs wearing MUD’s Black Cake Eyeliner and a fierce wing!

5. Spooky Fall Makeup Trends

When thinking about fall makeup trends, you can’t forget Halloween—one of our favorite fall festivities! With this haunted holiday comes the joys of gory, wild and extreme makeup. This month, our beauty school in Austin welcomed Teresa Romero, the Co-Creative director at Jose Luis Salon Boutique, to teach Avenue Five Institute’s students a specialized FX makeup class. Students learned firsthand how to use prosthetic molding, sculpting and casting techniques to create realistically advanced cosmetic effects.
