Hottest Makeup Trends for Autumn/Winter

As MAC presents its A/W trend, the brand defines makeup as an artistry to achieve something that looks essentially un-cosmetic. The focus is on one’s self and how makeup can be a tool to amplify what is unique in you. “The new luxury is in individuality,” says Gordon Espinet, Vice President of Make-up Artistry for MAC New York. Here are the four makeup trends to watch:

1.  OFF COLOR

Classic tones with a dirty edge to become the new neutrals. The artistry involved in this subversion is what is compelling about these shades. “It’s about breaking them in, not breaking them down,” says Terry Barber, Director of Make-up Artistry at MAC. Your beauty inspiration:

2.  STREAMLINED

Using different strokes to make the eyes look wide. Terry Barber points out that very minimally covered skin feels like the most appropriate canvas for the eye this season. “The idea of something contained against something organic is what keeps it feeling modern,” says Barber.

3.  ON REFLECTION

Explores the punctuation of shine against matte. “Reflective makeup inherently has a very literal ‘lightness’ to it which projects the features rather than recedes them,” says MAC’s Lyne Desnoyers. Your beauty inspiration:

4.  UNPROCESSED

The idea of calling it “natural makeup” using skin-akin tones is now an outmoded concept. “Real is not a 3D-perfect skin that has had all the contours and highlights. It’s pushing home the idea that a woman’s face is beautiful in its natural state,” says Terry Barber. Your beauty inspiration:
