Top 5 Beauty Trends for Fall

Fall is officially here, and while many of you are overhauling your wardrobe to make room for new boots, scarves and oversized sweaters, it’s time to start thinking about refreshing your beauty looks too. These wearable beauty trends have hit the runway, and now it’s time for you to incorporate them into your look for fall.

5 beauty trends fall

1. LASHES, LASHES, LASHES

A staple in all makeup bags is making a huge statement this season. Bold, big lashes are in and offer an ultra-feminine doe-eyed look to any makeup wardrobe. To get the most out of your mascara, start applying at the root of the lash and wiggle the brush to the tips. This will put more mascara on the lash root, providing lots of lift. The wiggle motion helps to separate the lashes, meaning no clumps, just long, luscious lashes.

My recommended product picks:

Stila, HUGE Extreme Mascara, $30

L’Oreal, Voluminous Mascara, $9.99

Clinique, High Impact Mascara, $24


2. STATEMENT LIPS

Say goodbye to your nudes, and say hello to bordeaux and bright reds. The power lip is back and includes deep fall colours. These colours come in a variety of shades, meaning this trend works for every skin tone. Use this lip trend as an accessory for any fall outfit, and pair it with minimal makeup. For deep colours, always make sure you are using a lip liner to prevent lipstick from bleeding into the lip line. To make it more precise, try applying the lipstick first, then use a lip pencil to achieve more exact lines without looking harsh.

My recommended product picks:

MAC, Diva $23

NYX, Blood Love, $9

NARS, Powermatte Lip Pigment, Under my Thumb, $34


3. BARELY THERE SKIN

Instagram makeup is out, and fresh, natural skin is in. Tinted moisturizers and sheer coverage foundation dominate this trend. Let your natural freckles shine through by first applying a hydrating primer or moisturizer first. Then, apply foundation starting in areas that need more coverage and lightly dusting areas that need less. Finish by using a little concealer if necessary.

My recommended product picks:

MAC, Face and Body Foundation, $35

NARS, Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, $55

NUDESTIX, Nudies Tinted Blur Stick, $33


4. NOT YOUR CLASSIC FRENCH NAIL

Just as the title says, the classic French nail style is making a comeback, but with a major twist. Bright, base colours are paired with white tips to take a unique approach to this trend. Pro tip: After applying your base colour, use reinforcements to map out the tip of your nail and help you get that perfect edge.

My recommended product picks:

Guerlain, La Petite Robe Noire Deliciously Shiny Nail Colour, Jagua Ink, $29

Sally Hansen, Complete Salon Manicure, Let’s Snow, $9.99

Deborah Lippmann, Get Lab Pro Nail Polish, Love Hangover, $15


5. LOW-STYLE BUN

We can thank royalty for this one. Meghan Markle rules this trend and sports this hairstyle frequently to numerous royal events and public appearances. The low-style bun is chic for work, but also on-trend and fun for a weekend brunch or a first date. Lightly tease your hair at the crown to get a little volume in your hair before pulling it back into a bun at the nape of the neck. To get more hold with this hairstyle, use a texturizing spray before styling the hair, and lightly spray the bun with a light hold hairspray once you’ve completed the look.

My recommended product picks:

Ouai, Texturizing Hair Spray, $26

Bumble and Bumble, Does It All Light Hold Hairspray, $34

Drybar, Texas Tease Teasing Brush, $23
