There’s something about fall that re-energizes our sense of style.You don’t have to completely re-vamp your wardrobe, as beauty routines are ripe for change, and it’s amazing what a big difference a little lipstick in a bold new hue can make. A change of texture for the hair can also make a fresh statement. Metallic replaces matte when it comes to eye shadow and nail polish, and summer’s beachy waves give way to sleek, chic ponytails.
Here’s a look at some new favorite trends this fall. All can be found at Beauty Brands!
Metallic Nails: This fall, think of nails as accessories, with heavy metallic and gilded golds making a statement. Get the 24-karat look with one of this season’s many precious hues from favorite brands like OPI and CND.
Shimmering Lids: Fingers and toes aren’t alone in going for the gold in shades of metallic this season. Paint eyelids in dramatic washes of gilt, silver, and copper, or dust on a little for subtle shimmer. At Beauty Brands, you can choose from powder and cream shadows and layer them on as you wish. Stila and Too Faced offer day and night options. (And for a more dramatic effect, line your eyes with stunning cobalt for a fun change from black!) (Eye palette to try: Too Faced Natural at Night Eye Shadow Sexy & Sultry Neutral Eye Shadow Kit, $36. Available at BeautyBrands.com)
Lips Like Wine: Set aside summer sips of Chardonnay and effervescent rosé. It’s time to raise a luscious glass of deep Merlot or Pinot Noir to your lips. Anyone can wear these dramatic, black cherry hues. The trick is choosing the consistency that’s right for you, from long wearing crème lipsticks to sheer, glossier versions. And they look great with the pale, porcelain complexion that’s trending for fall. (Recommended luxe lipsticks: Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick in Wild, $26 and Too Faced La Crème Lip Cream in Divine Wine, $21. Available at BeautyBrands.com.)
Do the Pony: There’s no better way to frame a flawless, polished face than by gathering tresses into a ladylike pony tail. There are many ways to style it, from a bouffant crown to a deep side part to ballerina sleek. At Beauty Brands you’ll find straightening creams and weatherproof sprays, as well as tools to help create the smoothest look.
