2014 Fall Beauty Trends
I love trying beauty trends each season, like one of the hottest summer beauty trends was orange lips and I seriously loved it. But summer is over so let’s find out about the new Fall Beauty Trends!
Eye Makeup Swatches from Left to Right, top row first: Milani Bella Eyes in Emerald // Milani Bella Eyes in Rouge // NYX Loose Pearl Shadow in Silver // Eye Tini Cream Shadow in Spiced Rum // Sephora Eye liner in Jade
Some of the hottest 2014 Fall Beauty Trends are…
1 // Metallic Eyes: Whether that’s eye shadow, cream shadow, or eye liner. Jewel tones and silvers are the most popular but really any metallic will work. Just wear an eyeliner for something more work appropriate or do a full metallic smokey eye for a night out. Try these for that Metallic touch. Milani Bella Eyes in Emerald // Milani Bella Eyes in Rouge // NYX Loose Pearl Shadow in Silver // Eye Tini Cream Shadow in Spiced Rum // Sephora Eye liner in Jade
2 // Berry Lips: I love a good fall lip, and berry lips are so hot this season. Berry is a really great color that goes with so many different skin tones. You can try a lighter berry shade for day, and darken it up at night, try finding berry lipsticks with purples or reds in them to really bring the vamp. Try these babies. Revlon Sassy Mauve // CoverGirl Embrace // OCC Lip Tar in Strumpet
3 // Metallic Nails: These were pretty popular last year as well, but they are making even more of a statement this year. And to be honest metallic nails are the perfect polish if you are in a hurry because it doesn’t show streaks or messes as much. There are so many really good metallic polishes out there, but these are two of my fave Maybelline Color Show in Bold Gold // Spoiled in Paying with Platinum
4 // Natural Makeup: The barely there makeup is coming back and this is probably a trend I won’t be trying too much. The point is you are wearing makeup, but it looks really natural so you can’t really tell you have it on. That’s all fine and good, but if I’m going to take the time to wear makeup, I want people to actually think I am wearing it. But to each their own! :)
5 // Big braids: Braids have always been in style to me, but they are definitely coming back this season. I’m not the best hair braider of all time, but I will keep practicing to make perfect.
So there you have it, some of the newest Fall Beauty Trends for this year. Yay! Are you going to be trying some of these? Let me know in the comments below!
