Fall is an exciting time of change as the seasons evolve and the school year begins. This makes it the perfect opportunity to incorporate some of fall and winter’s hottest upcoming makeup, skincare, and wellness trends into your beauty arsenal. Ami Mallon, corporate global educator for Osmosis Skincare and Osmosis Colour Mineral Cosmetics, shares her predictions for the top trends to try as pumpkin spice lattes and cozy sweaters come back into style.
Makeup Trend: Brows with Texture
It’s no surprise that brows have been on trend for quite some time now, but the evolution they have made is extraordinary. Brows have moved from thin to big and bold and overdrawn. “This fall and winter take on brows is all about the natural texture of the hair itself," says Mallon. “Brows being shown brushed up, undone and even 'boy' like. The key to this look? A good brow gel.”
Makeup Trend: Blue Toned Eyes
Although aqua blue on the eyes is normally more of a summer trend, we are seeing hints of various blue shades all over runways for fall and winter this year. Blue serves as a playful alternative to black or brown on the eyes and works with every eye color.
For a gorgeous blue liner that stays put throughout the day, try Osmosis Colour’s Navy Eye Pencil. “It can be used to either line the eyes or all over the lid as a daring shadow that mimics the depths of the ocean,” says Mallon. The smooth, water resistant formula features vitamin E and jojoba oil to nourish, hydrate and condition for a comfortable, eye-popping dimension.
Makeup Trend: Blush is Back
Good news—blush is back with a vengeance and it’s taking the place of that summertime bronzy tan. We are seeing bright pops of peachy pink, giving the skin that I’ve just been outside on the ski slopes, youthful and fresh look. “Look for a shade that is the perfect combination of peach and pink shimmer to warm up the face and draw attention to the cheeks,” says Mallon. You'll want a formula using mineral pigments to reflect light and create a soft-focus effect to illuminate your features and minimize imperfections. Be on the look out for other ingredients such as green tea to neutralize free radicals, vitamins A and C to boost firmness and elasticity, and oils like moringa seed to hydrate.
Skincare Trend: Inside Out Beauty
If you are what you eat, then your skin is what you eat too! Ingestibles are all the rage when it comes to skincare. Supplements have the ability to treat specific skin conditions when topical skincare products often falter. “I love Osmosis Skincare’s Complete Digestive Enzyme supplement which contains many different types of enzymes,” explains Mallon. “It is designed to mimic the natural functions of the pancreas, tackling digestion and allowing the body to better absorb and utilize nutrients, clearing skin and offering a natural radiance.”
Skincare Trend: Supercharged Skincare
Skincare that is catered specifically to you, your skin type and your skin’s needs has been on the rise. “I like to refer to this as boosted skincare—skincare that is super charged and filled to the brim with ingredients like peptides, vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, growth factors, and superfoods for your skin,” says Mallon. Osmosis Skincare features serums which are active concentrates, meaning they contain significantly less water than traditional skincare. Less water used means more actives and more significant change to the skin upon use. Skincare products that use growth factors and skin proteins derived from adult stem cells improve all aspects of skin damage and aging by stimulating new cells and rebuilding collagen and elastin for a more radiant, youthful complexion.
