10 Makeup Trends You’ll See All Over Instagram This Fall
Makeup artists, this one’s for you! We’re in full fall trendspotting mode, and below, we’re sharing 10 makeup trends that are about to be popping up all over your Instagram (if they’re not already!). From watercolor eyeshadow and floating eyeliner to berry lips, keep scrolling to find out which looks will take the top spot this fall!
1. Fox Eyes // Makeup by @briannafoxmakeup
Think of fox eyes as cat eyes’ little sister. This new trend relies on eyeshadow AND eyeliner to create the elongated look of almond-shaped eyes. Use concealer or tape to sharpen your lines and pop on a pair of false eyelashes to really pull the look together.
2. Floating Eyeliner // Makeup by @sirjohn
Who says eyeliner should be reserved for the lash line? Not only does floating eyeliner give you the freedom to place eyeliner where you want, but the sharp, clean lines really elevate your eye look while giving off futuristic vibes. Just know drawing clean lines takes practice!
3. Heavy On The Blush // Makeup by @ryanbpotter
If this trend looks familiar, there’s a chance you’ve already spotted it on TikTok. Famously worn by “E-girls”—aka a Gen Z subculture that rocks a style influenced by skate culture, goth, K-pop and cosplay—it’ll have you going heavy-handed on the blush, placing it all over the cheeks and nose rather than just the apples of the cheeks.
4. Berry Lips // Makeup by @hkassel
What’s a trend report without a classic or two? Bold berry lips and the fall season go together like wine and cheese. It just makes sense.
5. Watercolor Eyes // Makeup by @mianne.chan
Your fave eye palette called and is tired of you using the same five neutral shades over and over again. Watercolor eyes are here to let you get creative. The best part? There’s no right or wrong way to approach it. Just mix and match whichever colors your heart desires!
6. Full, Fluffy Brows // Makeup by @makeupemalii
Thin, over-plucked eyebrows are a long forgotten trend of the ’90s (that we hope never makes a resurgence). These days? The fuller, the better.
7. Glowy Skin // Makeup by @makeupsang
Put down the powder and pick up some highlighter instead because 2020 is all about letting your clients shine—literally! From the face down to the collarbone, dewy, glowy skin is IN this fall.
8. Matte Red Lips // Makeup by @jackieaina
Ah, a matte red lip. Another classic that will always have a place in top makeup trends for fall. Need we say more?
9. Retro Blue Eyeshadow // Makeup by @angiemikaelian
If blue eyeshadow once made you cringe, you’re not alone. However, this trend—that was once considered a makeup faux pas—is making a MAJOR comeback in 2020. The trick is to choose a shade of blue that best compliments your client because it has the ability to brighten bloodshot eyes, awaken dull-looking skin AND counteract dark undereye circles.
10. Disco Ball Eyes // Makeup by @donni.davy
This trend skyrocketed to the top following the release of the TV show “Euphoria” and proved it’s here to stay this fall. Disco ball eyes involves placing embellishments around the eyes and is extremely versatile. You can either go all out with the silver and glitter (as seen on runways) or do something more wearable like strategically placed pearls.
