While no-makeup makeup continued to rule the Fall 2016 makeup trends on the runways, it was the makeup artists who broke the rules—loading models’ faces with glitter, employing new takes on the conventional cat-eye, and pairing evening gowns with vampy, sinister lips—that got our attention this season. From striking sets of bleached brows, to scene-stealing red lips, click through the slideshow for the Fall 2016 makeup trends that made the cut.
Brows-Be-Gone: All the Major Fall 2016 Makeup Trends From Fashion Month
A SPRINKLE OF GLITTER
This season proved that you don’t need to be in elementary school to play with glitter. Models at Saint Laurent and Anthony Vaccarello opted for swooshes of gold, silver, blue, and red cat-eyes, while backstage at Burberry and Opening Ceremony, makeup artists dusted flecks of Bowie-esque shimmer on the models’ cheekbones.
A timeless red lip is classic and contemporary—a single swivel of lipstick can pick you up from a beauty rut, or add some after-hours vamp to a ladies’ night ensemble. We saw both takes of the classic red lip on the runways of Prada, Roksanda, Proenza Schouler, and Mary Katrantzou this season.
