Chicago beauty pros weigh in on fall's freshest makeup trends, and how you can create these looks at home.
This season, Chicago makeup artists are swearing by products by Bobbi Brown, Becca, and OCC.
The expert: Jo Levy. The trend: Subtle gold shadow. Why: Levy loves a more minimalistic take on of-the-moment metallics via a dusting of gold glitter shadow. “It creates a gilded, glimmery effect that’s perfect for evening.” How to: Dampen your fingertip or a small makeup sponge before dipping it into OCC: Cosmetic Glitters in Gold ($15). Gently tap across your eyelids for the perfect amount of sparkle.
The expert:Jill Glaser. The trend: Lit-from-within skin. Why: This isn’t the overly-highlighted, in-your-face shimmer of seasons past, but rather “a subdued radiance and luminosity that captures the essence of the ‘no-makeup makeup’ look,” says Glaser. How to: Dab Becca Backlight Priming Filter ($38) across your complexion as the first step in your makeup routine. In addition to imparting a healthy glow, the sheer primer also boosts the staying power of products used afterward.
The expert:Fredy Anaya. The trend: Berry lips. Why: “Fall is the perfect time for deep, rich berry lip colors,” says Anaya. “They add warmth and life to your complexion.” How to: Reach for Bobbi Brown Raisin ($27), a universally flattering hue Anaya suggests for all skin tones. Keeping the rest of your makeup clean and minimal ensures your pout remains the focus.
