5 Top Trends From The Makeup Show Chicago

Natural Skin is a must have for the fall months. Look to the Red Carpet, runway or your favorite fashion
magazines and you will see models and celebrities wearing makeup that is barely there featuring a soft
matte finish. A sheerer coverage complexion with strategic warmth and shine is flattering for any face.
Chose a long wear or waterproof option for optimum fall wear. A few of our favorites are Marc Jacobs
Beauty Shameless Foundation and MAKE UP FOR EVER Waterblend. For additional hold and perspiration
control, try Alcone or Mehron anti shine and sweat products as a primer. The pros swear by them to keep
clients looking cool in the most intense heat.
