Being the best time to experiment with new and exciting looks, it’s no wonder fall always comes with an abundance of beauty trends, all unique and captivating in their own way. And this season, it’s no different. From new hair embellishments to fun takes on classic makeup styles, here are some of the biggest fall beauty trends you are bound to see everywhere in the upcoming season:
Big and bold hair accessories
The runways this season were filled with hair accessories bigger than you can imagine, and it seems like the look is slowly catching on among fashion influencers and street style stars as well. This fall, the bigger the hair accessory, the more dimension and attention it will bring to the look, making it one of the hottest current trends. If you want to try this trend out, you can go for anything from an embellished, oversized barrette to a wide padded headband. No matter what you choose, though, just make sure not to think small.
A long and bouncy mane
Apart from oversized hair accessories, another hair trend that’s taking over the beauty world this season are long, full and voluminous hairstyles that are classic and beautiful enough to complement any look, without stealing the show. So, if you’re naturally blessed with a long and thick mane, don’t be afraid to wear your hair down this season. If you aren’t so lucky, however, you can always consider getting gorgeous Russian hair weaves that will give you the length and fullness you need to achieve this beautiful voluminous look.
Seductive dark lipstick
Dark, vampy lips are a trend that truly never goes out of style, and it seems to be the number one fall staple year after year. However, the dark lip trend has a new and interesting twist this time around. Instead of opting for an entirely matte look, go for lips that have as much shine as possible, whether that means opting for a satiny, shimmery lipstick or pairing a matte lipstick with a coat of gloss on top. As far as color is concerned, anything from wine and dark berry to deep purple goes; just make sure it matches your skin tone perfectly.
Two-toned eye looks
Why would you only choose one color to put on your lids when you can go for two? Whether you opt for a bold liquid eyeliner or more subtle powder eye shadow, you can achieve this bold and vibrant look by putting one shade on your top eyelid, and another hue on the bottom lid. This way, you could easily add some brightness and color to any fall look, especially during those dark and gloomy days. Just make sure to keep the rest of your makeup neutral, to avoid anything too overpowering.
An abundance of highlighter
Although highlighter is usually a summer staple, the trend seems to be extending into fall this year as well, with a gorgeous shine that aims to combat the general dullness of the season. But instead of the summery shimmer, the highlighter this season has a beautiful, natural sheen, achieving that desirable Instagram influencer look. As long as you choose a highlighter with a wonderful “glow from within” effect, you can instantly beam up your skin by applying it on your cheekbones, brow bones, as well as the Cupid’s bow. You don’t have to be light-handed either; the more glow on your complexion, the better.
From voluminous hair and oversized accessories to dark lips and colorful lids, the beauty trends this season are as diverse as ever, but they’re all beautiful in their own way, and undoubtedly worth trying out come fall.
