Ditch the fake spray tan and glittery face bronzers because summer is  over, but the fall makeup trends have a plethora of products to offer. Number one rule, of course, is glowing, natural skin!  Here beautypress has compiled the top must-haves for the fall season this year, plus a bonus beauty trend!

NATURAL BROWS — Must have: a brow pencil or kit  Naturally full brows are the single most important part of our makeup routine this autumn! Whether you have thick, groomed brows a-la Cara Delevigne or more like those of 60’s fashion icon Twiggy, there is no need to panic! Carefully apply a brow pencil with sharp but short strokes where hairs normally grow. Choose a color lighter than your natural hair color to correspond with the tint of the brows. The great thing is that you can substitute a brow pencil with an eyeliner self-sharpening pencil – the effect will be just as good, and the difference – totally unnoticeable!

If you have full brows already, all you need to do is tweeze the excess hairs around the brow and brush them in their natural direction. Finally, finish off with a colored or clear brow gel to get that glossy groomed eyebrow look, and keep them fixed for the whole day.  Val Garland, global makeup director of L’Oréal Paris, focused on a natural, “boyish” brow at Poiret’s Fall 2018 runway show.

But don’t forget the mascara!  At Givenchy’s Fall 2018 show, superstar makeup artist, Pat McGrath, used “layer upon layer upon layer of mascara,” adding, “It does a lot for the eyes.”

For the first time in nearly 20 years — since the 1999 launch of J’Adore — the house of Dior will debut a new fragrance.  According to a LVMH press release, the new scent, created by François Demachy, is “an unprecedented fragrance and a powerful universe which marks the beginning of a new era for fragrance at the house of Dior.”  Brand ambassador, actress Jennifer Lawrence, 27, who has worked with the French fashion label since 2012, will serve as the face of its marketing campaign.

Shooting the latest campaign for Christian Dior’s fragrance, J’Adore, Charlize Theron is simply ethereal!  The actress, 41, runs through the rain and frolics into the sun-light sea while wearing an exquisite gold evening gown.  The campaign was shot by filmmaker, Jean-Baptiste Mondino. “With every film, the House of Dior wanted to make this woman evolve, and understand her role in the world, defining a rapport with luxury,” the director shares.  This film follows the previous campaign, in which Charlize is seen climbing towards “elsewhere” — never reaching her true destination.  For behind-the-scenes access to previous J’Adore film shoots, check out the “Unexpected” interview with Peter Lindbergh.
