Iredale agrees, stating “The eyebrow is going to be powerful and really groomed this fall. Apart from lashes, it’s going to be the No. 1 accessory. People are getting more adventurous, combing gold metallics into dark brows—there is more playfulness with the brows.”

Natural Beauty

This fall, perfect skin is literally in. “Whether the focus is on the lips or the eyes, the rest of the skin should be undone with a matte glow. The face is more prominent and the skin is a lot more natural than normal, which is very healthy-looking and pretty,” says Marissa Nemes, celebrity makeup artist.

Kristine Kay, makeup artist and owner of Shampagne Hair Studio + Beauty Lounge in Kansas City, Missouri, emphasizes the focus on a light touch when it comes to foundation and powder. “The complexion isn’t dewey or shimmery, but it is very light-handed, so people have to have great skin,” she states. “When a bare look is in, skin has to have a natural, healthy appearance.”

Iredale agrees, saying, “The skin is center stage and everyone wants to show off their hard work.”

And although makeup that is too matte can make a person look older, the current look is somewhere in between matte and dewey, according to Luque. “It is a perfect, flawless, no-makeup look,” stresses Geason. “Those who are taking care of their skin want to show it off. Makeup artists need to figure out how to make clients look flawless using the least amount of product.”
