Fall 2013 beauty trends: From cat-eyes to berry shades
Summer glam is all about beachy waves, dewey make-up routines, bronzers and pink shades of lipstick. And while we still have a few more weeks for warm summer skin and pops of pastels on our cheeks and lips — we’re also thinking about how we’ll put our best faces forward for fall.
Last fall was all about dramatic contrasts and dark oxblood lipsticks. If you have those shades still stashed in your cosmetic bags — good! They are here to stay … along with berry-shaded lipsticks and, for the daring, dustings of glitter near the eyes.
We’re trendspotting at Sephora, where you can get up to 6 percent Cash Back on your purchases through ShopAtHome.com.
Here’s what fall 2013 beauty trends we have to look forward to:
Cat eyes: Rawr. For this sultry make-up trick, you’ll give your eyes a little winged-out edge with some black liquid eyeliner. For an easy, step-by-step cheat sheet on how to create the look, check out this guide from Cosmopolitan.
Berry shades: Oxblood lip shades last fall were universally flattering on all complexions — creating an especially dramatic look for those with pale skin. This fall, a brighter berry is the “in” shade. To get the most true color from your lipstick, exfoliate your lips, dab with a moisturizing lip balm and then use a thin layer of your foundation to prime your lips. For fall, we’re loving the “Be Legendary” shade from Smashbox at Sephora.
Bedazzled brows: Does this give you bad flashback to clubbin’ in college? Thought so. The runways were full of sparkly, bedazzled eyes and we’re not sure we can pull that off in real life. So, for something way more subtle — but still sparkly — how about a fun glitter liner for Friday night date night. Urban Decay’s cheeky line of Heavy Metal shades at Sephora range from “stage dive turquoise” to “metal head dark purple” to the more expected “midnight cowboy beige.”
Earth toned nails: After a summer of crazy and wild nail art fueled by designs on Pinterest, the nail polish trend this fall is gravitating toward more earthy matte polishes. (Think: mossy greens and charcoal grays).
