Holiday season is just around the corner, and so I bring you my top picks for the hottest Fall/Winter makeup looks for you to try and have fun with. These trends are quick and easy to do on your own, while having a big impact to your look and style that will leave you looking glamorous instantly.

1. Velvety, matte skin

We have loved the dewy look for quite some time already, but this season, we make way towards velvety, flawless skin with nude cheeks, as seen on the runway at Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Balmain and Chloe. To achieve this skin texture, set your foundation with matte powder, skip the blush, then finish off with a soft contour.

2. Berry, wine-stained lips

Whether your skin is fair or dark-toned, you will look great with berry, deep plum or wine lips. The trick is not to create a solid lip, but rather an undone, stained look for a more modern approach. You can do this by keeping the edges soft and smudgy. You may also experiment using two shades of plum lipstick: try MAC lipsticks in Rebel and Ofra Lipstick in Fuchsia.. It’s definitely a favorite look this season as we have seen this on the runway of Derek Lam, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Fendi, Miu Miu and Vera Wang, among several others.

3. Bold, Graphic Cat Eye

Smokey eye has stepped aside as the cat eye look has taken center-stage this season. Designers who wore this look include Jason Wu, Ferragamo, Anna Sui, Michael Kors, Lanvin and Monique Lhuillier.
There are a lot of variations for this look – bold, defined, graphic, or soft. You may use a gel liner or a waterproof eye liner, such as Eye of Horus Liquid Define Eye Liner to achieve this look. A simple trick is using a scotch tape by the side of your eye to guide you in creating that flick. Have fun playing with the trend by using other colors aside from black, such as cobalt blue or emerald green.
