By OLIVIA PAYER / Jul 12, 2019

When it comes to beauty, perhaps "trend” isn't the right term to use. After all, there are so many different beauty style and inspiration we can see every day. From our social media feed, our daily walks, the red carpet, the list goes on and on.

That said, despite our mixed feelings about the term "trends”, we notice that some looks are more popular than the others. We really do believe that some looks are memorable and popular enough to be the hottest fall 2019 makeup trends.

Curious about our findings? Read on to find out!

The Hottest Fall Beauty Trends in 2019

Want to stay on top of the trend? We've narrowed down some of the most beautiful and popular looks for fall 2019. Makeup trends listed in this article are totally wearable. So don't worry, you can adapt them to your daily makeup look without looking too eccentric.

Glossy finish

The glossy look is back this season! While super-matte lipsticks had been popular in the last few seasons, they now have to step down from their throne. After all, it's finally time to give our lips some rest from the super-drying makeup look.

Lipglosses are trending again this season. So, why not get yourself a non-sticky lipgloss for this fall? Rehydrate your lips by applying your favorite colored lipbalm and topping it with a clear lipgloss.

Shiny smoky eyes

Even though smoky eyes have remained a popular trend in the last few years, we're only seeing the shiny smoky eyes lately. To be exact, it's a signature look in Tom Ford's runway and we expect to see it more often this fall.

There's a lot of staple smoky colors, like gray, mauve, and plum. What makes this look different is the use of cream eyeshadow and eye gloss. The shiny effect gives the eyes more depth and dimension. Additionally, this look will draw more attention to your beautiful eyes without making them look too heavy.

Natural and strong eyebrows

Strong eyebrows are perhaps the most expected fall 2019 makeup trends. After all, bold eyebrows have been trending for several years now. But there's something different about the strong eyebrow trend this season.

This fall, it's all about embracing the natural appearance of our eyebrows. While the previous season has been filled with airbrushed, structured eyebrows, this fall we'll be seeing more natural and bushy eyebrow looks. Clear brow gels are your key to achieving this look; the bushier, the better.

Flushed cheeks

Say hello to lovely, flushed cheeks and goodbye to bronzer. This season, it's all about embracing the blusher which has been an underrated makeup product these last few seasons. Whether it's the old-fashioned powder blush or the versatile cream blush, get ready to brighten up your appearance.

A strategically placed blush can instantly add a pop of color to the face. Make sure to blend the blush nicely. You don't want the color to look out of place. Instead, you want it to look as if your cheeks are naturally flushed and glowing.

Soft contour

Contrasting the previous years' strong and bold contour looks, one of the most prominent fall makeup trends 2019 has brought to us is the soft contour look. This fall, less is more. The trend is to look as naturally flawless as possible. This means you should use less product for a fresh and clean makeup look.

To achieve this trend, use a foundation with sheer to medium coverage and apply highlighter strategically. You should only apply the highlighter on places where the light naturally hits your face, such as on your cheekbones, on the bridge of your nose, under your browbone, and on your cupid's bow. If you feel the need to use a bronzer to contour your face, make sure to use it sparingly.

Monochromatic makeup

Monochromatic makeup seems to be the signature look of this season. We can see this fabulous look in the Cushnie and Veronica Beard runways. More importantly, we also notice that pinkish and reddish tones seem to be the popular choice for this trend.

This look is all about choosing the right color and using them in all the right places. If done correctly, the monochromatic look can give the face more dimension and highlight your best features.

Fresh-faced glow

One of the most natural and gorgeous fall beauty trends 2019 has brought to us is the fresh-faced glow. Much like the previous season's glass skin craze, this beauty trend puts emphasis on having a glowing, flawless skin.

To achieve this look effortlessly, improve your skincare routine. Moisturize your skin often and protect it from UV damage with sunscreen. Focus on getting a healthy and luminous skin. You can also try using makeup products that double as skincare products as well. For example, a BB or CC cream with SPF can give you a sheer coverage while protecting your skin.
