YOUR GUIDE TO FALL BEAUTY

It’s hard to admit it but Summer 2014 is really coming to an end. The only thing that can make us feel better is knowing that we can finally begin rocking the hottest fall beauty trends. From graphic liner to deep side parts to berry-stained lips, this is going to be a glamorous season for beauty. Click through the slideshow to discover the eight looks you need to know as temps drop.

 

  • THE GRAPHIC CAT EYE: The classic cat-eye is getting a modern upgrade for fall. Think bolder lines, bigger wings and creative colors - this is going to be a fun season for beauty risk-taking.
  • NO MAKEUP" MAKEUP: The funny thing about the 'no makeup' makeup look is that it actually takes quite a lot of product to get the look just right. Pull out your foundation, concealer, mascara, blush and highlighter and you're good to go ;)
  • THE NEW PONYTAILS: Yes, it's so easy to pull your hair back into a standard ponytail and call it a day, but the fall runways proved that when it comes to ponies, the options are endless. Get creative!
  • DEEP BERRY POUTS: Very excited about this season's major lip trend: deep berry stains. Use either a stain or lightly patted-on lipstick to get that alluring just-bitten look.
  • SIMPLE NAIL ART: Last season, we called that nail art was O-V-E-R, and now we must admit that that prediction was off. The days of bedazzled and over-the-top nails may be done, but simple and clean nail art is very much in for fall. These looks are fun and creative, but easy enough to do at home.
  • AN UNEXPECTED "POP": The fall runways proved that an unexpected pop of bold color can do wonders for your entire look, and it's surprisingly both flattering and easy to pull off. Swipe on a vibrant hue of liner for an unexpected, fresh twist.
  • GO DEEP: Switching up your hair part is without a doubt the easiest way to update your look without doing anything major. Deep side parts were all over the fall runways - make sure hair is super sleek for a luxe effect.
  • METALLICS: GO BOLD OR GO HOME: Metallic shadows and frosted lipstick are both major trends this season. They feel modern, but make sure to only go for one focal point or it's metallic overload!
