Sadly, the balmy days of summer have since been chased away by the gusts of fall. While we aren’t quite ready to rock all of our cold-weather gear (brrrrr!), we are super excited to debut a few new autumn beauty looks.
With all the trends that walked down the Fall/Winter '17 runway, it’s hard to decipher which ones translate best to real life — especially for women of color. So, we asked celebrity makeup artists trusted by stars like Kelly Rowland, Solange, Yara Shahidi, Taraji P. Henson and more about the top 9 beauty trends that should 100 percent be on your radar.
Scroll down below to see what made the cut — and what didn't!
"I’m really excited that the bold eyeliner was a big hit during fashion week," says Malika James, whose clients include Gabrielle Union, Kelly Rowland, Lauren London and Tika Sumpter. "Keep the focus on the eyes — the rest of your makeup should really enhance. Kohl eyeliners truly give the best smudging results to me."
Editor's Pick: Charlotte Tilbury Rock'N'Kohl in Bedroom Black ($27)
The squiggly brow trend is "a definite 'no' for fall," if you ask Yolanda Frederick, whose clientele includes Ciara, LaLa Anthony, Solange and Jennifer Hudson. However, she's feeling a bold chocolate lip this season. "I want to veer from the traditional deep berries and plums," she adds.
Editor's Pick: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Mink ($9)
"My favorite fall makeup trend is using bold, bright hues of color on the eyes, taking risks and enjoying color," explains Carola Gonzalez, the woman behind Kerry Washington, Uzo Aduba, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Priyanka Chopra's slays. "It’s about making a statement that represents your individual personality."
Editor's Pick: Make Up Forever Aqua Matic Waterproof Glide-On Eyeshadow in Iridescent Electric Blue ($22)
"My favorite beauty trends for fall are dark lips, metallic eyes and graphic liner," shares Lucky Smyler, whose behind the looks we love from Viola Davis, Tia Mowry, Logan Browning and Aja Naomi King.
"All of these trends can be worn by any woman of any age and of any skin tone. [You can] still look beautiful without looking like you're trying too hard."
Editor's Pick: NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Silver ($4.50)
For fall, Micheala Coel and Jill Scott's makeup artist, Tasha Reiko Brown, likes to keep it classic with a holiday bold red or berry lip. "The simplicity and striking color contrast on bare beautiful skin is lovely and timeless," she adds.
Editor's Pick: Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Lady ($27)
According to Ashunta Sheriff, when it comes to beauty trends, less is, in fact, more. “I am feeling natural glowing skin not masked heavy contoured faces," says the seasoned makeup artist whose clients include Taraji P. Henson, LaLa Anthony, and Sanaa Lathan.
"Everyone is beginning to look the same and that's boring. But a great skincare regimen is key — I love Urban Skin Rx their products are amazing and nourishing."
Editor's Pick: Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint ($26)
Editor's Pick: Mented Cosmetics Lipstick in Dark Knight ($16.50)
"I'm ready for a 'yes makeup' makeup look instead of 'no makeup' makeup look!" says Lavone Anthony, who works with Danai Gurira, and Jamilah Velaquez. She's looking forward to asymmetrical artsy eyeliner and metallic halo eyes this season.
Editor's Pick: Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow in Satina Van Der Woodsen ($5)
“I’m loving this reimagination of copper and metals on the eyes! It’s bringing a pop of color and sizzle to fall!" explains makeup artist AJ Crimson, who works with Estelle, Brandy, Letoya Luckett and Regina King.
"You can take any metallic eyeshadow, wet your brush with water for finishing spray," he adds. "Swipe your moistened brush in the shadow and wash the color on the eye. Then, add deeper shades of matte shadow for more depth of color."
