As another summer winds down and colder weather starts to set in it is time to look at some of the upcoming hot beauty trends that we can expect to see this Fall season. Just because the weather is cooling down doesn’t meant that the world of beauty can’t be as hot as ever. Here are some of the looks we are expecting to see in the coming months for hair and make up.
Dark and gothic looks are going to be popular but that doesn’t mean that you have to go all out with the black eye makeup, nail polish and lipstick. You can go with a classic romantic look that has a hint of gothic style without going overboard. Choose a smokey eye look with gray eye shadow tones and liners and a deep burgundy lipstick will help you to blend in with the changing colors of Fall. Always remember to choose cosmetic shades that go well with your skin tone so that you will not have a look that is more dramatic than what you were going for. You don’t always have to go with the darkest hues in order to make a dramatic appearance. Almay’s line of Intense i-Color Smokey-I shadows are great products to try because they help to enhance the natural color of your eyes.
All natural looking rosy cheeks in soft pink hues will be the look everyone will be going for when it comes to using blush and tinted powders. This look has been taking the runways at all the major fashion shows by storm for the past few months and is sure to catch on this fall with the rest of us. It is a look that is reminiscent of being out in the cold winter air and is elegant enough for a night out with friends or a day at the office. Rosy cheeks give a more youthful appearance that is not too overly dramatic and risqué. To achieve this hot new Fall look yourself try out L’Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Blush in Tender Rose or Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush in Rose Petal – $6 – $8.
As mentioned earlier, deep reds for lips are going to be very popular in the coming months. Expect to see a lot of burgundy, crimson and other dark shades of red this fall as more people experiment with these hot and striking hues. In order to achieve the most spectacular look for lips, try dabbing a small amount of liquid foundation on your bare lips at first before applying your color. Dab your lips with a tissue before re-applying for a professional touch. Some brands to try include Manic Panic Black Rose Burgundy Lipstick Gothic 80s, CoverGirl Continuous Color Lipstick in Bistro Burgundy and Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Crimson $4 – $8.
Some of the hottest trends when it comes to hairstyles for Fall 2012 will be braids of all types. Laid back, loose braids, extensive cascading braids and French braids have caused braided hair to come back in a major way over the past few months and it is a look that does not seem to be going away anytime soon. A simple pulled back braid will give you a strong feminine look with very little effort. You may choose to use a quality hair serum and work it through wet hair before braiding and then blow dry your hair to ensure a smooth and elegant finish. This will also leave you with beautiful wavy hair once you take the braid down which would be the perfect look for a night out.
