6 Fall 2012 Beauty Trends

Sunday, September 2, 2012
1. The smoky eye
  • The smoky eye is a sexy and edgy beauty trend that has been a staple for almost every woman that wants a sleek and confident look. For Autumn 2012, it's deep, rich colors that were seen on the runway. Creating this look is quite easy. I recommend using Maybelline's Eye Studio Color Explosion Luminizing Eyeshadow, or MAC's Eye Shadow in Freshwater for a cool and fun look.
2. Hair jewelry
  • As one of my favorite trends for this Fall, hair accessories have become more ornate and luxurious. Seen on celebrities and on the runway, these headbands and barrettes can serve as a beautiful and stylish backdrop for hair styles. Pair them with a side swept bang, a top bun, or long curls.
3. Colorful tips
  • As this trend has been around since Spring, it doesn't look like it's going anywhere for Fall. This is such a versatile idea, you can paint your whole nail and then change up the tip. Or just color the tip and it makes your whole nail liven up. For this season, make the base of the nail a rich color like burgandy, and have thin strips of beige. Makes for a fun and flirty nail. I suggest using O.P.I. or Essie for long lasting color.

4. Braids
  • Braids are functional, and a chic alternative to other hairstyles. They have depth, and create a sleek look. A pulled back braid, whether it's in a bun or in a ponytail, can create a strong look in the front and a feminine look in the back. From fishtails to waterfalls, there are plenty of different techniques to play with.
5. The Bordeaux lip
  • The best way to update your lips for fall is to pair a deeply stained, crimson shade with a simple face for contrast and drama. This look is bold, and while it may be dark, it's super sexy. I recommend using M.A.C Pro Longwear Absolutely It Lip Pencil to create smooth lines.
6. Rosy Cheeks
  • While I may never use this, kind-of sucks when you have super fair skin and you naturally have them. This trend is blooming and comes after some inspiration for a "natural" flushed look. Think if you come inside after being outside in cold weather, or an hour in the hot tub. Or geting racier, after you've had sex. I recommend using MAC cheek powder that comes in several different hues of pink and red.
