Yes, autumn brings Pumpkin Spice Lattes, apple picking, and beautiful foliage, but the chillier weather also brings opportunities to try out new fashion, hair, and makeup trends. We’ve already shared our list of fashion trends you will see in storefronts (and closets!) this fall, so we thought it would be helpful to give you our list of hair and makeup trends for this season that will help complete your look.
Ditch your straightener, curling iron, and mousse – it’s time to embrace your natural waves. This season’s look is all-around natural, which makes boho waves the perfect accompaniment to the popular seventies-inspired clothes we saw on the runway. The best part of this trend? Because it’s not overly styled, putting in minimal effort will maximize how “on trend” you’ll be. Be careful though – boho waves aren’t codename for bedhead, so feel free to add some hair gloss to your mane before you leave the house.
Again, the theme for fall 2015 hair and make-up is keeping it natural. Bold colors are for tights and dresses this season – not for your eyes. Focus on keeping your skin healthy and moisturized to give yourself an earthy, barely there makeup look. However, that doesn’t mean you should avoid highlighting your assets – use black and dark brown shades to give yourself a small cat-eye. It’s a subtle way to draw attention to your eyes while still adhering to the neutral color pallet.
Goodbye fancy updos, hello easy headbands! Slicked-back hair will never be totally out of style but for the time being, headbands are back to provide a casual, easy way to keep your hair behind your head. This trend is one of the most adaptable on our list – whether you prefer wide leather bands, ones with glitter, or a band that displays your flower power, headbands fit every style of wardrobe.
Undone Red/Berry Lips
Yes, this season’s clothing might be inspired by the seventies, but lip color is all about the nineties. This lip is about looking effortless and “undone” so skip the lip liner. From cherry red to oxblood to plum, embrace the shape of your lips and simply swipe on your favorite shade of red. Not every hue is best for every skin color, so take the time to experiment and discover what shade you’re most comfortable with. Red is a classic and versatile color, so even if you’re a little hesitant to hop onto this trend – don’t worry! No matter your comfort zone, there’s definitely something for you.
No, that’s not a typo! “Bronde” is our new favorite term for, well, exactly what it sounds like – a hair color that’s too light to be considered brown but too dark to be considered blonde. The color has gone viral after Blake Lively shared her new locks via Instagram and it’s one we can’t wait to try; after seasons where ombré and other two-toned hairstyles have been popular, it’s a relief to have a trendy haircolor that doesn’t require a lot of effort, time, or money for upkeep. What better way to celebrate the new season with new ‘do?
