The Best Fall Beauty Trends for 2015
Autumn. I love this time of year. It’s around this time that we realize that the year is almost over and we re-evaluate our progress through the year. It is also the time of year that we assess our wardrobes and our beauty routines. We look to our favorite magazines to find out what’s hot this season. Many of the following beauty trends are not new. But there is always a different way to spin many of our beloved looks, especially the looks that walked this season’s runway shows. To find out which beauty trends are hot on the runway this season, keep reading.
The Red Lip
This classic beauty staple shows up on many runway shows season after season. Of course, we like to experiment with other colors like the nude lip. We also love those daring colors such as purple and hot pink. But there is something special about the classic look of red lips. Now it’s all about various shades of red—bright, dark, and sultry. There are also the various formulations of creamy or matte. The key difference this season is the full-bodied finish as opposed to tints and glosses.
The current trend in lashes is not quite what you would think. It’s really about that wide-eyed doll lash look that’s created with a lot of mascara and yes, lashes clumped together. I must say this look may not be for everyone (myself included) but makeup is about self-expression. So if you are digging that look, go for it! If you want lashes that are equally impactful but less clumpy, go for a faux lash. It’s a bit more voluminous and sexy.
Metallics are one of my favorite beauty trends. From lipsticks, to nail polishes and eye shadows, metallics can add a luxurious vibe to your look. The key is balance. If you want to use metallics, I would suggest choosing one feature to highlight. As opposed to highlighting all features and look like the Tin Man. If you are wearing this trend on your eyes, try a metallic liner. If you choose to do your lid, opt for a matte shadow in the same tone or shade family in the crease to ground the look. If you choose to focus on the lips, use a liner in a complementary shade to give shape and definition to the lips.
Using hair accessories is a great way to elevate your hairstyle. From barrettes and headbands to scarves and bows, the options are endless. You can also experiment with different textures and finishes such as leather for a chic rocker vibe or crystals which can create a glamorous finish to your look.
Go beyond your usual cat eye and experiment with an extra flick of liner to create a double-winged liner. Take it a step further by layering another color on top of your black liner to create and exciting pop on the eyelid. If you are feeling extremely daring, experiment with different shapes or even draw a graphic line in your crease like they did for the runway shows at Suno and Rochas.
Flushed cheeks are a great way to finish off a minimalist makeup look. This season’s looks are unstructured and easy going in hues of rosy and brownish pinks. Cream blushes applied with your fingertips are perfect for getting this fresh, easygoing glow.
Brows are more feathery and relaxed this season. There’s a focus on grooming and light control which can be achieved with a brow brush and brow gel.
Nail Art is one of those beauty trends that I don’t see going away. The look on the runways varied from lines to color blocking and even geometric shapes to adorn the nail.
Deep Rich Polish
I absolutely love the deep rich hues of fall including copper, deep gray, blue, plum, and burgundy. These shades give way to a beautiful, sophisticated and daring vibe.
