Pumpkin Spice and Vampy Lips – Fall 2017 is Here!

In need of some creative inspiration? You’ve come to the right place.

September is an amazing month. At some point, the sun stops burning humans to a crisp on sight in Texas. Pumpkin spice mania revs back in to full swing courtesy of coffee shops everywhere. And it is socially acceptable for me to start wearing MAC Cosmetics ‘Nightmoth’ EVERYWHERE with EVERYTHING.

In case I ever wanted to expand my fall/winter lip liner choices, I’ve got my hands on the TOP beauty trends this fall from professional makeup artist James Vincent. Right this second, I’m in Dallas preparing to head into The Makeup Show Dallas where James currently serves as the Director of Artistry. I expect to be hearing more about these trends in the next few days of education, shopping, and networking! Here are James’ six picks for fall 2017:


Too much metal for one hand. Unapologetic mined metals with hints of black and smoke, gorgeous tones of gold and copper for a sheer, golden look and metallic glitters on the lid like gold leading were all over the runway for fall 2017. Danessa Myricks Metals and Enlight Powders, Kevyn Aucoin The Loose Shimmer and Stila Glitter and Glow are the perfect products to let you keep the look natural or add more drama.


Artistic black liner was all over the runway in traditional and unexpected shapes. MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Paint and Ink Liners allow anyone to be a Picasso with their makeup. For a more traditional liner look try Crown Brush liquid liner. At less than $5 you can’t go wrong with this pro favorite for cat eyes or a more museum ready liner look.


Berry lips are not a bold or unexpected choice for fall trend. This is a classic that comes back every season. With a wide array of berry shades in any texture your choices are unlimited. Smashbox has an amazing amount of berry lip product in lipsticks and stains for any skin tone and you will not be disappointed in their lipsticks or liquid lips.


On both the eye and lip bold swatches of color in all shapes and depths delivered a gorgeous attention grabbing makeup look. If you want to make impact with your own makeup try Cozettes new shadows or Danessa Myricks Color Fix for some unlimited options. Mehron makeup has the most beautiful palettes at an easy price point if you want to experiment with colors you do not keep in your makeup kit. Try a softer shadow brush to sweep color across the lid for a more wearable look or add in a bold bright liner for a little bit of fun that won’t be too crazy.


Pink is the perfect shade for any cheek but this soft shade has made its way into lashes, lids, cheeks and lips this season. Senna Cosmetics Slip Cover Blush allows an effortless hint of pink in both brights and naturals and the cream to powder formula makes it easy to apply. MAC Cosmetics offers some of the most iconic pink shades for any skin tone in their brilliant lip ranges and have endless options in lipstick lip gloss or even their Lip Mix kit which allow you to create magazine worthy makeup.


The deep burgundy brown and blackened berry lip has been a fashion favorite for years. NYX Cosmetics and Charlotte Tilbury give you the IT Girl glamour at different price points so any person can be the vampy siren they have always wanted to be. Try Temptu Lipsticks or Pat McGraths series lipstick in MCMENAMY for some rich deep options that will have you looking and feeling like a super model

I think these picks are totally on the money. Missing anything? Let me know what trends you are rocking this fall in the comments below!
