The seasons are changing, and as we transition into fall, so is our makeup. Surprisingly, instead of warm spicy hues that are typically expected during the fall season, they may be replaced with bold colors usually spotted during summer. COVID stole our summer, and it looks like fall has turned into “Fummer” Makeup trends showcasing rich, saturated blues, pastels, and hot pinks; one this is for certain, the color will not be sacrificed this season. Above The Mask: Eye Looks For 2020
Pantone nominates specific colors each year that represent the time. 2020’s color is “classic blue”. This fall, expect to see pigmented blues. Turn heads with bold eyeshadow looks, blue lip colors, and midnight nail styles. With the pandemic ripping into our social lives, beauty enthusiasts are craving color. This fall will bring on the vibrancy and energy most of us lost during the quarantine. Makeup artists are pulling pastels to brighten up the dark days that loom ahead. Lots of styles include neutral lips and colorful eyes. From dark blues to vibrant pinks, it seems that the eyes are the center of attention this season. Whether it’s because we are all hiding behind a mask or because the eyes are the window to the soul, eyeshadow palettes and powders will be essential this season.
