This huge makeup trend for fall 2017 is one of my absolute all-time favorite makeup looks, and is also my personal go-to look, the Statement Lip. Making the focal point of your look a big, bold, glorious lip is one of the fastest ways to look fabulous, effortlessly.

The Statement  Lip gives you a way to look polished when you don’t have a lot of time.

5 Tricks To Pull Off The Statement Lip

You need to have some tricks up your sleeve in order to pull off this look.

  1. Create a creamy complexion. Stay away from heavy or powdery foundations, instead choose something that makes the skin glow and look pretty.
  2. Use a soft blush. Keep all the power in your lip, and scale back the cheek to a neutral, soft shade.
  3. Balance the lip with a soft brow. Avoid hideous Instagram-style eyebrows, but do add some depth to your brow, making them a little more defined and adding a little extra color.
  4.  Accent the lashes. Add a few coats of really great, high volume mascara. My top four high volume mascaras are Clarins Supra Lash, Diorshow Blackout, Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes and Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.
  5. Choose your texture wisely. Statement lips don’t look so good in high gloss. Choose a matte finish or a satin finish. Longwear formulations are fantastic for a bold, statement lip.

Who Can Wear The Statement Lip

The Statement Lip really works best on slightly fuller lips. If your lips are thin, a bold lip may not be your best choice.

Fall Makeup Trends ~ Get Gorgeous With Big, Bold, Black Eyeliner!

Fall 2018 is an exciting season for makeup. The typical fall pumpkin spice latte looks are taking a back seat to some big, bold fall makeup trends. (Yay!!)

One of the coolest looks of the season is a rocker-chick, heavy duty liner. Super insouciant, this look is a little wild, very undone, and makes a statement all by itself.

If you are going to channel your inner Kate Moss Rock’n’rolla there are a few rules to play by.

If you have deep set eyes or tend to have dark rings under your eyes this may not be the look for you. Heavy black liner will make deep set eyes look even deeper, and will add emphasis to dark under eyes.

Although skin needs to look bare, naked skin seldom looks great with heavily lined eyes. Bare skin can take on a greyish hue making you look under the weather and cold, detracting from your chic diva hotness. Use a thin veil of foundation to even everything out – a heavy, full cover foundation is out of place with this look, blowing the sense of nonchalance. Keep the complexion soft by using a cream blush. This will reflect a little light and add life to your skin.

To nail this fall makeup trend use a kohl pencil or a soft smudgy pencil, working the color into the lash line first then flaring it out. Either take a clean eye shadow brush or a Q Tip and soften and smudge the liner – it needs to look imperfect. Go over the liner with some black shadow to set it and stop it moving. If the liner is slipping down your face the look is blown!

Finish the look with multiple coats of thickening mascara. My favorites are Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes, Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, Diorshow Blackout and Clarins Supra Volume Mascara.

Soft, boring, pumpkin spice latte themes are put to the side, and fierce, bold beauty takes over.

This look is from my Fall 2017 Luca Magazine Beauty Story.

This look is from our new fall issue. A jewel toned, metallic smoky eye is huge for fall. To get this look keep the skin  creamy and smooth, create a lip that is soft, and go all out on a deconstructed smoky eye. This look is not about perfection, its about a gritty kind of glam.

Finish your eye with a jewel toned metallic, placed above and below the iris. Using the law of complimentary opposites, choose a shade that sits directly opposite your eye color on the color wheel.

Not sure what that means? No problem! This post about How To Choose Your Perfect Eye Shadow Color will break it all down and make it easy for you!

Here is the product list with affiliate links.

To create this look I used Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream to nourish the skin and make it just gorgeous and glowing. I followed that with Marc Jacobs Beauty Undercover Perfecting Coconut Primer and Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator. Makeup For Ever Ultra HD Foundation evened out the skin tone, and their cream blush in Shade 225 gave the cheek a soft, subtle lift.

From MAC I used a smudgy black kohl liner all around the eye, then buffed it out with a soft brush. With a good inky base laid down I layered on black eye shadow, buffing out the edges, but letting them stay imperfect. I used a high intensity pigment mix of Copper and Basic Red. I finished the look with multiple coats of Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara and Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Kidman’s Kiss.
