From eyes, lips to cheeks, everything is coming up metal this season. Bold in your face metals with hints of black and smoke to dazzling golds and coppers rule the runway for fall 2017. If you’re looking to try this trend reach for Danessa Myricks Metal Pigments or Enlight Halo Powders, Kevyn Aucoin The Loose Shimmer or Stila Glitter and Glow products as options from a girl-next-door look to high drama.

Black Liner

Dramatic black liner was all over the runway in classic and unpredictable shapes. MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Paint and Ink liners allows anyone to bring out their inner artist.

Berry Lips

Berry lips is once again the classic color this season with vast shades of berry to compliment every skin tone. Smashbox has an extensive range of berry lip products in lipsticks, liquid lips and stain formulas to complement any skin tone.

The Vampy Lip

Deep burgundy brown and blackened berry lip has been a fall mainstay for years. There’s a color and price point for everyone looking to be a trendsetter. NYX Cosmetics has wallet friendly vampy colors with great color payoff. Looking for high-end brands with rich, deep color options try Pat McGraths series lipstick in MCMENAMY or Temptu Lipsticks that will have you looking and feeling like a socialite.

Bright Color

Playing with rainbow colors on the lips and lids in various patterns and depths delivered stunning makeup looks. Feeling a coloring book vibe for the eyes and a desire to make an impact, try Cozzettes new eye shadows or Pro Artists favorite Viseart new Color Theory shadow palette. Mehron makeup has gorgeous palettes at an affordable price point and high quality that allows you to experiment with colors that you may not have in your makeup kit. Afraid to go all out bright, no problem, gently sweep a shadow brush of bright color across the lid for a more wearable look or simply use a bold bright liner for a little fun.

Pink Pink Pink

Pink is great for cheeks but this season it is used all over the face from lids, cheeks, lashes and lips. Charlotte Tilbury has some of the most quintessential pink shades for all skin tones for lips and their Lip Mix kit which allow you to create fascinating looks. Try Senna Cosmetics Slip Cover Blush which is quick, easy to use and in shades of natural to bright pink.

Beauty Wellness

To avoid burnout, the pro artist needs products to indulge clients and care for their skin and soul. The Body Shop Tea Tree line uses essential oils and plant extracts to meet the needs of problem skin. Anyone looking to decompress should look no further than Rebels and Outlaws brand of unguided meditation candles and brush soap designed to clean brushes and bring energy to your makeup application and everyday life.
