Fall is here and not only the weather changes. Your makeup, hair and clothes do, too. What are the top beauty trends for fall? If we need to sum them up in three words it would be polished, feminine and sophisticated. Here’s what you need to know to update your hair and makeup for fall.
“Wine stained lips and bold crimson lips are the hot colors for fall 2012,” says makeup artist Elizabeth Ulloa, who works with Covergirl. Celebrity makeup artist Claudia Betancur also is using more red on her clients, who appear on Hispanic TV and magazines.
To give you a natural and fresh look, blush should enhance your cheekbones and not overpower your face. Bobbi Brown has a great pink neutral, Pink Rose ($25.00), which looks great on both fair and medium skin tones. Avoid shimmer for a more polished look.
When it comes to hair, the idea is to pull strands off the face to achieve a polished look. Texture and layers to give movement to straighter do’s are the way to go, according to celebrity hairstylist Carlos Vera, who has worked with Thalia, Britney Spears, Shakira and Kim Kardashian. Avoid frizz if it’s rainy outside by using a spray that will lock out moisture; Vera uses Pantene Normal-Thick Hair Solutions Anti-Humidity Hairspray ($3.99).
He also says you won’t see as many requests for ombre colored hair; the most fashionable trend is to take chunks of hair and color them in a contrasting hue to give depth.
Here’s a roundup of the major beauty trends you will see during the cooler months.
