Ever since we saw the models hit the runway at fall Fashion week back in February, we’ve been itching to fill you in on all of the season’s trends. Now that it’s FINALLY that time of the year, we’ve been eagerly writing up posts everyday about what will be popular once autumn hit. Since we’ve already filled you in on what’s trending in shoes, sweaters and jeans, I figured it was time to let ya know a little bit about beauty. After all, an outfit isn’t truly complete without the right makeup to match.
Sometimes the makeup we see on the runway can be kind of intimidating. A lot of it is exaggerated to compliment the over-the-top outfits and stand out under the catwalk’s bright lights. So since some of the things we saw were just too “out there” like smoky eyeshadow underneath your eyes or agressive winged eyeliner, I figured I would focus on something you might actually consider trying–metallic lipstick.
Don’t be scared. Remember how I said that makeup on the runway is over-dramatized? Well, that’s what’s happening in the picture above. The photo was taken backstage at the Rodarte Fall Winter 2014 runway show, so it obviously had to look very dramatic. But when it’s worn in real-life, the same tube of NARS lipstick is definitely not this intense. The models probably have multiple coats of it on. Trust me, we’ve seen the FW makeup artists glob it on.
NARS isn’t the only brand that’s making this trend happen. Kat Von D, Obsessive Compulsive and Shiseido have embraced the new lipstick trend. It’s actually really cool to wear on a fun night out or with an understated outfit. It’ll definitely make your lips pop and stand out against all of the deeper fall clothing colors like navy, black, brown and grey. And when you wear metallic lipstick, you don’t need to wear a ton of other makeup, since it makes a statement itself.
Everyone here at SHEfinds thinks the metallic lip trend is super cool, but will you try it out? If you said no, just wait a little while. You might think it’s a little strange now, but in a month or so, you’ll see it everywhere. So if you want to be “on trend,” put some metallic lipstick in your makeup bag now.
