Grunge Goddess: Nirvana-Inspired Makeup Trend?

Makeup Trends for Fall

This Season’s Makeup Palette Rocks. The unkempt looks of fall’s makeup palette are highly reminiscent of the laid-back Nirvana era, and we scoured several eclectic lines to find the perfect ’90s-inspired cosmetics.

Autumn lips are deep, dark and decadent, showcasing pouts in shades of berry, scarlet red and sheer black. Indulge in Lipstick Queen’s Butterfly Ball Shimmer Treatment Lipstick in “Goodbye,” an edgy sheer shimmer  with a hint of turquoise. The tint makes any smile appear whiter. $20 | www.lipstickqueen.com

This season’s smoky eye is messy and adventurous. Traditional grays and charcoals are replaced with smudged raspberry, bronze gunmetal and neutral metallic. Smashbox’s new Masquerade Eyeshadow Palette features nine of fall’s most coveted mattes and shimmers. $36 | www.smashbox.com

Opt out of fall’s messier looks with an equally trendy ice queen palette. Apply subtle shimmers to lids, or just in the inner corner of the eyes, in pale hues of silver, rose and periwinkle. Try Beth Ann Boutique’s signature Dimensional Shadow Powder in “Daylight.” $16.50 | www.bethannstyle.com

Achieve a flawless face with mineral foundation. Rae Cosmetics contains a micro-crushed blend of clinical-grade  nutrients and antioxidants that repair and protect the skin. Gently sweep on their Mineral Powder – SPF 8 for a fresh start. $39 | www.raecosmetics.com

We’d be remiss if we didn’t include an absolute fan favorite. Peruse through your favorite Sephora and pick up NARS Coconut Grove eye shadow. Skip your eyes and use this chocolate matte to shade in brows for a bold look with a minimal arch. $23.00 | www.narscosmetics.com
