New Makeup Trends This Season…Read On For Expert Help!

Posted on: June 26, 2009


When applying makeup, not only is it important to do a look that’s flattering, you should also follow the styles and trends of the season.

In this post, I’m going to let you in on all of the secrets to following the latest makeup trends.


Satin-textured skin is big right now. It will continue to be a major influence in the fall/winter season, sometimes including even bolder touches of shine to highlight parts of the face.

Another trend we’ve been seeing this season is contrasting warm and cool tones. The eye has also been fairly defined with intensely pigmented shadows.

Tricks for achieving impeccable makeup:


When applying shimmery products, whether powders or creams, it’s important to carefully control where the product falls so it doesn’t end up in areas such as under the eyes or areas with imperfections, which will be more obvious when shiny.


Remember that not all skin types are suited to a satin texture. If imperfections are present, choose a foundation with more coverage and a matte finish, which will be much more flattering.


Make the eyes pop by playing with the contrast and balance of warm and cool colors that help each other stand out. But be very careful when blending these colors. Remember that not all colors look good when blended together, which is why you should use a color in between the two of them that can be blended with both. Another trick you can use is to apply them right next to each other without blending.


A trendy makeup look, step-by-step:


Apply moisturizer over clean skin for a smooth, uniform base.

Apply concealer to undereye area and to any other imperfections that may be seen. Blend well to integrate with the skin.


Use a liquid foundation in the same shade as the skin tone. To achieve a natural effect, apply with a synthetic bristle brush. If needed, use a makeup sponge to help blend the foundation.


Once you’ve applied the foundation, mattify the entire face with the mineral powder using a large brush. That way the skin will be matte, but still maintain its natural shine.


On the eyes, start by applying the base shadow, which in this case can also be used as a highlighter. Apply to the arch of the eyebrow to illuminate the lid and on other high points on the face.


Apply the medium shadow on the lid, or if you choose, you can do a combination of two shadows.

Now intensify the look with pencil in the same color as the shadow, but a deeper shade. If you prefer, you can also use black pencil, shadow, or eyeliner to line the eyes. Remember to focus on the roots of the eyelashes, both inside and outside the eye.
