The most important cosmetics and makeup firms in the world are immersed in new launches and new products specially designed for the coming cold months. Do you want to know what these collections are like and what the makeup trends for the fall-winter 2018 season will be? We sum it up for you in these 5 keys.

1-Makeup-no makeup

This fall-winter we will see almost nude skins. Very light and juicy foundations that unify the tone but, at the same time, let the small imperfections of the skin show through. Dark circles, moles and freckles are not covered, but are shown off as part of the concept ofnatural beauty that reigns in the makeup of the coming months. .

The American firm Bobbi Brown warns us with its campaign that the interesting thing is to give up overpainting, so naturalness defines this fall.

2-Not without my highlighter .

The luminator arrived in our toiletry bags only a few years ago but has become an essential part of any makeup, both party and everyday. Because yes, relegating highlighter to more elaborate makeup or special occasions is a mistake.

The fluidized versions are applied all over the face, as a primer or mixed with foundation, for a glowing skin. The powder or stick formats are applied to strategic points of the face, such as the nose, high cheekbones, forehead or tear troughs, to add touches of light and dimension to the features.

3-The eyes: the protagonists 

This is where the fun begins. Original eyeliners or very simple smoky smoothers in different shades become the focal point of these makeovers. A brushstroke of color on the blank canvases that are the skins. .

The blue eyeshadow will become your faithful companion for your most sophisticated looks. For this shade Luca Pica, make up artist of Chanel, bet in his collection of Apotheosis, Le Mat for this fall 2018.

While for everyday, the tone-on-tone earth becomes a safe bet.

Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, presents the “Dior en Diable” collection that explodes with oranges, coppers and rust. The eyes star the contrasting colors of autumn and the warm-blooded temperament.

The eyeliner is the star of eye makeup trends for fall-winter 2018. In its most traditional version, a cat eye look in black is the perfect choice. But brands are betting on more innovative options. Flashy colors, metallic tones and impossible shapes.


4-The lips: you decide .

The big makeup firms have opted to include among their launches for next season the fall-winter colors par excellence: the reds and the burgundy.

In terms of textures, although matte textures will continue to be present, the trend is to move towards juicy and moisturizing ones, which are much more comfortable on the lips.

For red and a light formula has opted Dior in its latest launch Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge.

5-Temporary tattoos on the face

It is one of the most peculiar makeup trends to date. It’s too true to become massive but perfect for those who like to experiment, for a festival or a party. The first time we saw this trend was by Taiwanese artist John Yuyi, who has collaborated with brands such as Gucci or Nike. Rita Ora, fuses tattoos with makeup and fills the face with small drawings and symbols. In a more street wear side of this trend, the instagramer Melanie Santox usually opts for decals with floral or natural motifs.
