Fall 2014 Beauty Preview

Expect to hear the mournful cries of lipstick lovers this season. Autumn/winter 2014 is all about eyes. To really make eyes pop, other features get toned down–in most cases. Here are a few trends that appeared repeatedly on the AW14 runways at NYFW. Expect to see a lot of these, in many different iterations, come fall.

fall14-blueBlue Shadow & Liner: Blue was the hue of choice on the runways. Here, at the Christian Dior show, it was amped up with chunky glitter and accented by blue mascara-coated lashes for a monochromatic effect. (Photo credit: Kevin Tachman)

What do you think of the fall trends? Which one(s) are you most likely to wear in real life?
