In an exclusive interview for Siempre Mujer, the prominent journalist and presenter Erick Cuesta, spokesperson for the cosmetic firm Neutrogena®, introduced us to the new makeup trends in colors and finishes for this season. In addition, he shared with us his best tips to apply them.Always Woman: What are the makeup trends for this season? Erick Cuesta:Autumn is very strong in terms of makeup, warm and intense colors will be protagonists. For the eyes, the shades predominate in the most subdued tones to maintain the contrast with the lips. As for the lining, the famous cat eye or feline effect is very much in. The skin should look clean and light, use a light base with a luminous finish, which makes the skin look healthy and young during the day and night. Also during this season, although the blush will not be lacking, this will not have prominence because the eyes and lips will be the stars of the day, so I recommend using bronzer shades that subtly define the area of the cheekbones, such as Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends in Sunkissed. SM: How does makeup for the eyes come… intense or soft?EC: The eye makeup will be mostly soft, because we will give greater prominence to the intensity of the lipstick. This means that shades in colors such as beige, lilac and nude will be your best allies. SM: What are the trends for eyeliner? EC: As I mentioned before, the famous cat eyeliner returns. Since the shades you should use are in soft tones, your liner will literally be the frame of your eyes. But, if you want a super relaxed look, you will have the option of using a metallic liner in gold, silver, copper or blue, such as the Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Liner in Twilight Blue. This will be the perfect opportunity to highlight your lashes with a good mascara or mascara. YE:What lipstick colors will set the trend in the fall? EC: Don't be afraid of color! Deep, rich colors will be the front row choice this fall. Seductive colors, such as burgundy, rich oranges, dark caramel, and raspberry, will give you the elegance and sophistication that the season requires. SM: How should we hydrate our face and lips? EC:Hydration is key to long-lasting makeup, so before you start applying makeup, put on a light, oil-free moisturizer that suits your skin type (dry, combination or oily). And don't forget your lips! The magic for well-hydrated and voluminous lips is to gently exfoliate and apply a little moisturizer every day before lipstick. This will give them volume and help your lipstick last longer.SM: What are the two key tips to achieve the ideal look of the season? EC: 1. First, don't miss an illuminator to highlight certain areas of the face. 2. And to close with a flourish, don't forget to define your eyebrows with the appropriate color.

SM: Do you have any makeup tutorial for the season? EC:Perfect eyebrows are in fashion in any season. 1. Use an eyebrow pencil with a shade lighter than your hair color to soften the look. 2. Define the arch of the eyebrows by outlining and framing with the pencil, blur the pencil with a small brush, combing the top and filling gently with color. 3. Use a concealer in the area under the eyes to correct and define around the eyebrows. Apply a small amount of concealer with a thin brush around the eyebrows to brighten and give a perfect finish.
