With school back in session – or very nearly so – it’s time to admit defeat and transition from those bright, fun summer trends to the dark, subdued fall trends. As the warm weather lingers into September, start the transition from your makeup bag and hang on to those sundresses as long as the temperature allows.
The Fall 2012 runways outdid themselves with innovative and breathtaking beauty stylings. This season, models were all about a clean face with one accentuated feature for a haunting and striking finish. Try your hand at the same gorgeous looks with these 5 must-have fall beauty trends.
TREND 1: Bold Red Lips
The London and New York shows favored a bare face with deep red lips that popped against flawless skin. It’s certainly an attention-grabbing look, perhaps not best suited for that 10-person history seminar. Instead, make a statement with this simple trend for more formal occasions.
TREND 2: Brown Eyes
Fresh-faced makeup has been a runway favorite for several seasons now, and made an updated appearance this fall. If you think those bold red lips are too much, you’ll love the dark brown eye trend; it’s the perfect combination of statement eyes and a natural look. Try creating smoky eyes using brown instead of black, for an unique take on the perennial favorite. It’s still sexy, but a bit more subdued.
TREND 3: Dramatic Eyeliner
If you like big eyes, this alternative eye makeup trend should feed your cravings. Geometric eyeliner was a favorite on the runways; the sleek and classy cat-eye gone wild. Disconnected lines, thick strokes, and bright colors were all rampant. Have some fun yourself creating abstract liner looks.
TREND 4: Big Brows
Finally, a beauty trend that requires practically no maintenance! Give your waxing routine a break and let your eyebrows shine in their bold beauty. That’s not to say you should let them go untamed; shapeless uni-brows are never in vogue. But, strong brows are the way to go this fall and winter .
TREND 5: Statement Hair Accessories
Hair accessories were all the rage on the spring and fall runways. While there are 7 must-have hair accessories from these shows, jeweled headbands, especially, were a designer favorite. Get the same girly, opulent look yourself.
