After discussing both men’s and women’s trends for fall last week, it seemed only natural that I also discuss fall beauty trends. After all, I wouldn’t want you walking around in this season’s clothes with last season’s beauty. Thin eyebrows instead of thick? Hot pink lips instead of burgundy? Oh the horror! Just to ensure that this
tragedy doesn’t happen to you, read on for all the fall beauty trends and how to make them work for you.
Braided Hair//Braids are still going strong into fall and quite frankly I couldn’t be happier. Aka the way I do my hair when I’m super lazy and too tired to wash it is totally in right now. Check out this 4×4 post for 4 different braided hairstyles.
Bold Brows//I’ve always had big eyebrows (I may or may not have confused myself with Oscar the Grouch while growing up), so this is another trend that I’m excited about! I keep my brows groomed and in place with a little clear mascara (you don’t need anything fancy…I love this one) and I like to fill them in using an eyeliner pencil in a shade lighter than my brows (again, nothing fancy is needed…I like this one in the ‘Coffee’ shade).
Winged Eyeliner//I may not be the best at winging my eyeliner, but I love how classic it looks. Black is always a safe shade to choose (I like this one), but blue is another popular color for the season.
Dark Lips//The dark burgundy and merlot shades of last fall are still around, but look for a more matte finish. A trick to make a not-so-matte color look a little more matte is to prime your lips with a thin coat of foundation before applying your lipstick. For me personally, lipstick isn’t an area I spend a lot of money on, especially a trendy color, so this is the shade I usually wear. I would recommend trying out cheaper versions of colors you like before splurging on more expensive ones. If you end up tossing a $5 lipstick it’s a lot less painful than tossing a $30 one!
Clean Face//You’ve probably noticed, that the emphasis isn’t on lots of colors or lots of products, but instead on making classic, bold statements with one or two areas of your face. To really accent this look, keep the rest of your face clean and simple, only covering blemishes and adding under-eye concealer.
