1. Splashes of Makeup on Face
The avant-garde option for the fall/ winter 2019 makeup trends was a little bit creepy and very post-apocalyptic. Models’ faces were splashed with paint in a way that created an otherworldly and intimidating effect.
2. Barely-There Makeup
A no-makeup makeup look is a runway classic, intended to enhance models’ beauty without interfering, and to allow the audience to really focus on the clothes presented. Keeping things simple is perfectly acceptable, according to the fall/ winter 2019 makeup trends.
This might be the most youthful of the fall/ winter 2019-2020 makeup trends. A touch of pinky blush is the easiest way to liven up the complexion and soften the face, so the runways where it showed up were definitely ones where innocence and purity were part of the aesthetic.
4. Bronzed Goddess
It’s hard to resist a bronzed goddess, especially when everyone else is looking pale and cold, which is why the runways where bronzer was used liberally really stood out to us, even though the rest of the makeup was kept understated.
5. Dewy Skin
The skin can get so dry and dull during winter, when there’s no moisture in the air and cold winds assault our faces. No wonder that designers and makeup artists alike wanted to go in the opposite direction, to show beautifully glow and hydrated skin that won’t get damaged by inclement weather. Notably missing from this trend: shimmery highlighters. This healthy glow is all about moisture.
6. Sparkle and Glitter
It’s fun to use a bit of glitter in your makeup look now and then, but for the fall 2019 makeup looks makeup artists went way above that, opting for lots of glitter rather than a subtle touch.
