Fall Season Makeup Trends, Tips From Mozaik Skin & Body

New products | 10 Aug, 2012 |

We spoke with Natalie Stabb of Mozaik Skin & Body in Scottsdale, who filled us in on the fall season makeup trends.

Over the past six years, the cosmetics world has seen the return and demise of neutral tones, lipsticks, pastels, cat eyes, matte foundation, smokey greys, blush and colored eye shadows.

According to Stabb, one item in particular to keep your eye out for is BB Beauty Balm. This “skin perfecting balm” seems to be a popular item found in the cosmetic bags of many.

“It gives full coverage but also helps with fine lines, wrinkles and helps smooth out skin,” Stabb says. “It is still a bit of a natural look.”

Brown, smokey eyes by Mozaik Skin & BodyBrown, smokey eyes are also big for the fall, as opposed to the aforementioned smokey grey. Stabb says this one is her favorite.

“You could do it in the daytime and go a little more dramatic for night,” she says. “Everyone can go with smokey eyes. It can go on a young person or an older person. It can be matte or bronze.”

Next on her list are jewel tones for the eyes. This includes amethysts, plums, navies and, especially, aqua shades.

For someone who is new to applying makeup or for those looking to try something new, Stabb suggests choosing a color that contrasts the eyes. For instance, use copper for blue eyes, and green hues for brown eyes. Stabb says plum shades are extremely universal and can go with any eye color; just pick the right shade for you.

“One of my favorite tricks is to do a really natural eye shadow and line it with a thick black liner, then just put a little metallic jewel tone shadow of liner in the corners,” Stabb says.

Keeping with the color theme, colored mascara is also on Stabb’s list of trends for the fall season. She suggests trying it on your whole eye as well as accompanied with your favorite black mascara. Try putting black on and using the colored mascara on the tips.

“Try using deep reds and deep plums,” Stabb says. “It’s a vamp look.”

She advises people with fair skin tones to choose a brick- or berry-red shade. For those with medium skin tones, try burgundy or maroon. If you have dark skin tones, stick to wines and browns.

“This is a brand new concept for Eminence,” Stabb says. “Our customers have been waiting a long time for this and have ‘fallen’ in love!”

Ultimately, Stabb says makeup is for playing and experimenting. Try many different looks and find out what works for you.
