Ready for Autumn? Here Are Some Top Trends to Try This Fall!

Fall is upon us. That means it’s time for cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and of course, fall beauty trends! With all the beautiful styles and colors to choose from, autumn trends are always some of the year’s most beautiful looks. To give you a hand in the decision-making process, we’ve chosen five of our favorite trends for you to try out this fall!

Bold Cheeks and Lips

No matter what year it is, fall is always the season for bold red and purple tones. While a dark, autumnal lip looks great with understated makeup, pairing it with a strong cheek is a fun way to play with color. It’s all about matching your lipstick with a blush in the same color family. The trick is to not go so heavy on the blush that your lips need to compete with your cheeks. If you’re wearing a dark wine-colored lipstick, choose a blush that looks like a watered down version of that color. Going for a classic red? Choose a rosy-toned blush to create the perfect balance!

Strong Brows

With so many eyebrow trends and brow products on the market, bold brows have been a staple trend of the last few years. For strong brows that are still natural, try out an at-home brow staining or tinting product. These products come with a delicate spoolie brush that is designed to fit between each brow hair and create darker, fuller eyebrows without over-shaping them. The strokes you create with these products look like natural hair, rather than filled in or tattooed on eyebrows.

Smudged Eyeliner

For a sultry, night-out look, try the smudged eyeliner trend. Using a pencil or crayon eyeliner, apply it as you normally would on the top and bottom lashline. After this, use a cotton swab or small sponge to soften and smudge the harsh lines. If the smudging is too messy, take another cotton swab, dip it in makeup remover of your choice, and clean up any excess product. The result of this is an edgy, undone look that is perfect for a crisp autumn night on the town.

Sleek Ponytail

This is an easy and oh-so-stylish hairstyle that you can easy create in about two minutes. So if you like to hit the snooze button, or you’re just into a no-fuss routine, a sleek ponytail is a great choice. It looks stunning on straight, smooth hair, but it also works for voluminous curls. Keep the top part smooth by using a comb and smoothing product and gather it all into a ponytail. Whether you like your ponytails low or want to pull it up high, this sleek look is a winner!

Headbands

Remember the stretchy headbands of your youth? It’s time to bring them back in a modern way! Embellished headbands, velvet headbands, and turban-style headbands are just a few of the options you can choose from. There are also various ways to actually wear a headband. You can use them to keep a hairstyle in place, wear one near the front of your head as an intentional accessory, or use a skinny ribbon headband to accent a ponytail or bun. A headband is a chic way to style your hair if you haven’t washed it for a few days, or you just want to add some extra pizazz.
