Makeup TrendsFall’s Most Eye-Catching Looks, With Tips on How to Nail Each Trend
  • Graphic Liner: This season is all about experimenting with your liner, taking the now standard cat eye up a knotch with extra shapes or lines, like we saw on runways at Anna Sui and Giorgio Armani.
    Get the Look: Makeup artist Eden recommends using different colors and always following the outside corner of the eye no matter what shape you're going for. Bonus tip: Use waterproof gel options for added precision, and something as simple as an extended cat eye on your upper lash line and a mirroring line below is a good way to try out the trend.

  • Loose Waves: We saw a more relaxed look on the runway when it came to curls, with the hair at shows such as Yigal Azrouel and Rachel Zoe taking on the boho chic look.
    Get the Look: The key to getting the '70s-inspired loose wave look is to wrap your hair around a 1 1/4 inch iron (curling away from the face) and leave the ends out, to give it that disheveled look. Finish by spraying with Oribe Superfine Hairspray to hold.

  • Slicked-Back Ponies: Ponytails are no longer reserved for the gym, and are now a red carpet staple. Between the sleek beauties we saw at Chanel and Emilia Clarke's showstopping Emmys ponytail, this look isn't going away anytime soon.
    Get the Look: Hairstylist Sean Gallagher used Oribe's Gel Serum and a fine tooth comb to slick back hair into a sleek pony, tying it with a bungee instead of elastic for better hold. He then sprayed Sally Hershberger's Salon Keratin RX for added shine.

  • Wine Lips: Oxblood, burgundy and "wine" are pretty much the only shades anyone is talking about for fall, so clearly you need to learn how to get the look onto your lips. Celebs rocked the look at the Met Ball (no one will forget Camilla Belle's look) and Gucci models paraded down the runway baring them.
    Get the Look: Makeup artist Eden Mills recommends playing around with the "potency of the color, layering the product and then blotting it away." Make it last by always exfoliating before application. Find more tips for getting this look from our how to video.

  • Bold Brows: Brows are certainly making a statement this season, and a full brow can be the center of any look. While makeup artists still occasionally battle for a bleached brow during fashion week (eh hem, Pat McGrath), we're glad the natural brow has been embraced.
    Get the Look:
    Eden recommends using a brow wax if you want a more intense look or a powder for a more subtle look, and always remember that less is more -- you can add later. Tip: Play with various product shades for a more daring brow (or for a fun night)!

  • Leopard Print Nails: Nail art is sticking around (good news for all of you nail art junkies) but it's becoming a bit more refined for fall. Instead of all-out bling on your nails, add just a dash of a pattern in strategic places.
    Get the Look:
    Nail artist Amanda Kocis added a bit of flair to fall's neutral nail polish trend with a touch of black leopard print. Find out how to get the look yourself with her nail tutorial.
