Every year, fashionistas, stylists, designers, haircutters, stylists, hair colorists, makeup artists, students of cosmetology school in Austin, TX, and everyone who has something to do with the beauty industry look at what’s happening on the fashion runways. This 2016, for example, what are the hottest hair colors for summer? Which dress silhouettes would customers most likely wear for spring? How about the hottest makeup trends for fall? As the season of the year changes, so do women’s looks. If you’re a makeup aficionado, here are some of the hottest makeup trends that you should definitely try out for fall 2016.

The Top Makeup Trends for Fall 2016

Aside from the fashion runways, you will also find plenty of makeup inspiration from the websites of Elle, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, and other sites dedicated to beauty. To give you a quick look at the hottest makeup trends to try out for fall 2016, take a look at the following list:

• Bring out the glitter!
At the runway shows of Tommy Hilfiger, Giambattista Valli, and Burberry, glitter for grownups is all the rage. Aside from the show-stealing clothes, the models wore smoky eyes with a hint of gold, the brow bone highlighters were sparkly, and subtle monochrome makeup with traces of glitter. Such trends may not necessarily be discussed in classes at a cosmetology school near Austin, TX so you need to be proactive in staying up to date with the trends.

• Deep Grape Lips
The fall season calls for something sombre and gloomy, which is exactly what the deep grape shade is. Go for almost nude makeup with deep grape lipstick and wow your friends during a night out.

• Free-for-All Black
If you’re the ever-bold fashionista, you should definitely try the free-for-all black trend this fall season. You can use dark liner, black lipstick, greasy/clumpy eyelashes, or eyeshadow with a soft dark smudge.

• Get your glow on.
If you’re headed for a casual outing, you don’t need your entire makeup arsenal. Using a blusher, tinted lip balm, and mascara, you can go for that glowing look. Simply work on eliminating the shine, adding some flush to your cheeks, and tint on your lips – and you’re all done!

• Modern Goth
Although a touch of black is considered trendy this fall season, the all-black lipstick look may be a bit outdated. To update to the modern Goth look, go for a dark shade that’s a mixture of black and red. Check out the aptly-named Poison lipstick shade to have a taste of this fashion-forward makeup trend.

• No Makeup Look
If you think that the no makeup look is literal, think again. This is just a different technique of applying makeup which gives you that natural look so that your skin’s flaws will be smoothened out and it gives you that dewy, soft flush.

• Oxblood Lips
Instead of the grunge look associated with dark lips during the 1990s, the updated shade of the oxblood lipstick is a lot more feminine. Pair it with warm cheeks, curled lashes, and brushed-up eyebrows to complete the trendy makeup look.

• Peachy
Peach may be a spring-inspired color, but you can just as easily use it on the fall. This oh-so-pretty makeup shade is seen in the runways of Balmain, Nina Ricci, Prabal Gurung, and Diane Kendal.

• Soft-Smoky Eyes
As seen in the runway shows of Alexander McQueen, the soft smoky-eye look can be recreated sans makeup brushes. You can simply blend a couple of dark shades onto your eyelids, then blend the color into the upper lash line. Pair this off with a rosy-gold shade and use it as highlighter for the cheeks.

• Stained Red
Finally, for the lips, go for a candy apple shade that’s not full-on painted. You can apply a red lipstick traditionally, but using your fingers, you can blot it off in the center just to give it that stained look. This is something casual but still trendy that you can wear during casual day outings.

Whether you’re a student of a school of cosmetology in Austin, Texas, a salon owner or just a woman who would like to change up her look, one of these makeup styles will surely look good on you. The fall season officially started September 22 so start trying out these hot, hot makeup trends!
