Sometimes the best looks are the easiest looks. Or the easiest looks are the best looks!

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.
Create a creamy complexion. Stay away from heavy or powdery foundations, instead choose something that makes the skin glow and look pretty.
Use a soft blush. Keep all the power in your lip, and scale back the cheek to a neutral, soft shade.
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.
Soft, boring, pumpkin spice latte themes are put to the side, and fierce, bold beauty takes over.
Fall 2017 makeup trends are about girl power. These are makeup trends that show strength. Fall 2017 beauty defies convention, commands attention, and says “I’m here. Count me.”

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.

If you have been reading this blog for a while then you probably already know that I am the Beauty Director for Luca Magazine.
That means I am responsible for the beauty content in the magazine. One of the things I do is produce and direct the beauty editorials in each issue. I have to be on top of beauty trends, know what is happening in makeup, design the shoots, choose the models the photographer and the crew, and put it all together.
I’m pretty much obsessed with the beauty editorial in the new issue! This is the Luca Magazine Fall 2017 issue with gorgeous Madelaine Petsch from the show Riverdale on the cover.
Today I’m going to give you a breakdown on the products I used for one of the looks in the beauty editorial. I am including affiliate links to the products.
Luca Magazine Fall 2017 Graphic Liner Story
The story behind this look was using a graphic liner to create accent to the outer corners of the eye. To keep the focus on the eye I needed to keep everything else neutral, and make the complexion as creamy and gorgeous as possible.

I balanced out the skin with a little Makeup For Ever Ultra HD Foundation. This is one of my favorite foundations because it is so pigmented that you only need a tiny amount, and it is a silicone base so it gives the skin a healthy glow. The last step to creating a perfect complexion was adding some Makeup Forever Cream Blush in shade 225.
On the eyes I started with MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, applied in a sheer coat from lash-line to brow to create a nice, even base all over. Next I layered a vanilla-nude matte shadow over the paint pot taking it from the lash-line to the brow to solidify the base. I cut the crease with a mid-toned neutral to give the eye some definition. (You can buff it out or leave it really defined – the look works either way.)
With the eye shaped and defined, starting in the middle of the eye, deep into the lashes, I added a crisp liner to the outer corners, giving it a little flick at the ends. I didn’t want a full blown cat eye, so just gave it enough of a flick to lift the outer corners of the eye. I used Makeup Forever Aquablack liner with a fine brush so that I could keep the line nice and sharp.
On the lower lash line I kept a clean liner that slightly went into the waterline. The trick is to keep the eye looking sleek without making it look like the model is squinting.
To keep the eye looking awake I added a pale eye shadow in slightly shimmery finish to the inner corners.
I finished the eye with layers of my favorite Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs, really focusing on the outer corners and adding a sweep to the lash line.
For this look I wanted all the attention to go to the eye, so I kept the lip pretty and luscious but soft with Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Kidman’s Kiss.
