Makeup Trends: What's In, What's Out

When it comes to beauty this fall, think simple and refined. Even though the season's fashion trends include plenty of glamour, beauty trends are simple: Hair is soft and natural rather than ultra-styled. Makeup is pared down '- less fussy. And super-glossy lips have lost their luster. In a nutshell, too cute is out, and grown-up is in. Here, the trends to embrace and let go of this season.

In: Naturally shaped brows. Makeup artist Deborah Grayson loves brows that aren't overly tweezed or severely shaped. They're in keeping with this season's more natural and subdued looks, whether your style is bohemian or classic.
Out: Outrageously arched brows. Brows that are exaggeratedly shaped or overly filled in can appear pretentious.

In: A more matte visage. This season, the idea is to moderate the shine enough to give yourself a refined rather than a childlike look.
Out: A dewy visage. A super-dewy face is so summer.

In: Lighter lashes. Gently enhance what Ma Nature gave you by going easy on the lashes. One good sheer coat of black or brown mascara is all you'll need. It's just not about excess this season.
Out: Tons of mascara. It'll be back, but for now, keep it simple and elegant.

In: Cherry red lips. As seen on the runways: A sheer, cherry red lip color looks terrific on everyone.
Out: Bold pink lips: Hot pink seems too young to pull off fall's more adult style.

In: Letting freckles show. This season, let your lovely self be revealed. Margaret Nelson, creative director for Giella Custom Blend Cosmetics, urges you to put your foundation away and use only the sheerest lightly tinted moisturizer to even your skin tone.
Out: Covering up. Hiding your pretty skin goes against everything sincere!

In: Crimson blush with subtle sheen. Rosy red cheeks are back, says Carol Shaw, creator of Lorac Cosmetics.
Out: Matte orange cheeks. Simply put, says Shaw, keep it real. Orange is too artificial looking!

In: Deep chocolate nail polish. Nails make a strong statement this fall, says celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann, who predicts deep-toned polish, such as chocolate browns and deep burgundies, will be big.
Out: Plain old pink. With this season's luxe fabrics -- velvet, suede, tweed -- plain pink nails just don't cut it.
