There are a lot of good things about fall, from pumpkin spice to fuzzy sweaters to new makeup trends straight from the runway. This season’s most popular makeup looks are all about radiant, glowing skin and shimmery eyes. Scottsdale’s Cos Bar manager Gloria Banuelos shares some makeup tips and tricks for achieving your best makeup look for the holiday season.
This fall, go for radiant and soft-looking skin using a light primer such as Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer and foundation. Add bronzer to highlight your cheeks for a shimmer of radiance and a healthy glow. Banuelos suggests using Bobbi Brown Scotch On The Rocks Highlight Powder Bronze Glow to achieve the best look.
As for the eyes, you want to keep them within a neutral color scheme this fall. If you’re going out for the night, go for a smokey taupe eye or apply a nude eyeshadow and lightly dab on gold glitter. You can even emphasize the eyes with a plum liner, a trendy color in makeup right now, or darker shadow along your bottom lashes.
To finalize your beauty look, Banuelos suggests adding a pop of color to your lips with a bright color. Reds and pinks are the most popular right now, paired with a classic cat-eye.
You can continue the radiant, shimmery trend with a neutral yet eye-catching nail polish as well. Bobbi Brown’s Copper Gold nail polish is a hit this season, Banuelos says.
Another great thing about fall is the array of holiday parties to attend. What is the best beauty look for a fancier event? Here are Banuelos’ tips:
Starting with the skin, Banuelos suggests prepping your face with a glycolic peel followed by a firming mask. Once your skin is tight and clean, apply a moisturizer and primer. This will ensure that your makeup is long-lasting and stays fresh during a night of dancing. In order to achieve a healthy looking glow and radiance, Banuelos says to try Christian Dior’s Airflash Foundation. Finish off the face with a light cream blush and powder on top.
Banuelos says make the eyes pop with Christian Dior Mirror-Shine Shadow on the entire eye, and then use Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Caviar to create a cat-eye. Lastly, apply Lancome’s new Grandiose Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara for an extra feminine and voluminous look. If you want more intense lashes, Banuelos suggests using Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Black Ecstasy Mascara to give the effect of wearing false lashes.
Create a bold lip with Chanel Silky Rose Lipstick, a long-lasting and beautiful lip color that won’t bleed as you sip on your holiday cocktail. Spray on some La Prairie Midnight Rain perfume, and you are ready for a fun night out to celebrate all things fall.
