It seems like we are being whip-lashed as trends sprint forward faster than ever. Lucky for us, though, they're currently moving in the direction of embracing a client's individual beauty, with small punches of artistic detail. 

At The Makeup Show Chicago, James Vincent, Director of Education and Artist Relations for The Makeup Show, shares his fall makeup trend report. 

TREND #1: In Your Own Skin Natural Skin is a must-have for the fall months. Look to the Red Carpet, runway or your favorite fashion magazines and you will see models and celebrities wearing makeup that is barely there featuring a soft matte finish. A sheerer coverage complexion with strategic warmth and shine is flattering for any face. Chose a long wear or waterproof option for optimum fall wear. 

TREND #2:  Bright Eyed Wonder 
Bold, beautiful pops of color were the perfect addition to fall and resort runways this season. As all over eyeshadow, a bold swipe of eyeliner or a bit of brightly colored mascara are a few ways to take the trend to your everyday. 

TREND #3: Graphic Designs 
Neo Graphic Liner is an easy fall choice. Pair a bold black liner with any lip from barely there to a daring red and it will always work. Traditional cat eyes are a bit blockier this season or try a sexy, smudgy cat eye for an unforgettable modern look. 

TREND #4: Glitterati
Glitter is never going away. This fall we are seeing easy glitter looks along the eyelid as liner or shadow. 

TREND #5: Smoke Screen 
The smokey eye never fails to make a return for fall. This season we see an eye that uses texture for impacts as well as color. Combine different formulas for off the runway, editorial looks that work well for every day.

Makeup "With a disposable eye shadow sponge applicator, I pressed in the beautiful bright green from Aqua Pear Eye Color Trio to the center of the eye lid," Skubis says. "When viewed from different angles, the multiple colors shift from the dark brown to the bright metallic green. So pretty!"
