With fall’s rich palette of greens, blues, purples, reds and golds available in shimmery hues and creamy finishes, as well as the freedom to be distinctively glamorous or nearly natural, this season provides great cosmetic options for anyone. Whether available to clients as an add-on at the end of a session or offered as a standalone service, makeup options are a great way to provide that perfecting touch at the end of a spa visit, and focusing on the skin plays right into a spa’s forte.

Craig notes, “We are really seeing that natural, healthy look in play. You don’t want to cover your face and not be yourself, and there is definitely a sexiness there, just being more comfortable in your own skin.” Wiebelt also adds, “This season, it’s not so much about a lot of color or makeup; it’s more about having really great features stand out—the well-groomed brows, lashes and skin.”

“It’s a good time to show people how they can use some of their favorites, but give them a twist,” says Eiseman. “This is a great opportunity to be creative, be artistic, to layer the colors and use them to interject some novelty into a look—and makeup artists are in a great position to show people how to use these new colors.”
