Fall colours always make us excited to transition from the “no makeup, makeup” summer looks to more sultry richer looks. The fall runways felt like a celebration of women, of individuality, and of freedom of expression. “That meant shadow was dark and smudgy, but also bright and precise. The options were endless, but the takeaway was clear: This season have fun with beauty, and most importantly, stay true to yourself, (source).” The makeup displayed the multi dimensional layers of what it means to be a woman and also expressed incredible diversity. Everything from geometric shapes to zero makeup was seen smattering different runways around the globe.
The fashion industry is truly showcasing the shift that is happening in society surrounding being yourself and rocking what feels right specifically for you. We’ve compiled a small list of some of our go-to looks and we’ve coupled them with some of our favourite Elate products to showcase the beauty of green products:
Ruby-red lips were all over the runway this season. Minimal eye makeup needed as the entire focus is on the plump red pout. Another great idea is to “dip a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover and dab it in the center of the lips. It has a slight ombré effect as well, (source).” Elate’s crème lipstick in “Tantric,” is perfect to complete this look.
The more colour the better on the eyes this season. Makeup artists are combining blocks of bold hues on and around the lids. “Now, more than ever, makeup is about enjoying color and making statements, and while some of the looks are fantastical, there are several options that could definitely translate to real life, (source).” Elate’s pressed eye shadow colours in Rave, Kindle and Modish are all great hues to colour block with.
“Ditch the lip liner. Forget the indelible mattes. Makeup artists purposely wanted the models’ lipstick to move around, blurring, fading, and sometimes even smearing it over their mouths, (source).” You know the messy smudged look you get after kissing someone? That’s exactly what we’re talking about. Elate’s creamy non-toxic lipstick in “Warrior,” is the first that came to mind when replicating this trend.
Black liner will never be out of style and fall always seems to bring it back. “It’s time to colour outside the lines with your basic black liner, (source).” Fashion always goes back to black, but this season makeup artists had had enough of the classic flicks. Elate’s black liner is a classic go to!
