As seasons change, so do the hot and fashionable beauty tips and make-up trends. Fall beauty trends add style and dimension to the simplest of make-up routines. Daily beauty routines can be as complicated or as simple as the wearer chooses to use. Make-up choices and routines can be as natural or as chic as the occasion warrants.
Try some of these tip-to-toe fall beauty trends and feel the instant transformation into the stylish and chic woman you dream of seeing in the mirror.
Let’s Start with Make-up
By simply beginning with a neutral base make-up and a barely there look, the face becomes a palette to create a sultry, fresh, dramatic or glamorous look. You decide the look you are trying to achieve and work from there. Here are a few ideas:
The Eyes Have It
Growing popularity with eye definition is shown in the presentation of cat eyes. Cat eyes can be achieved by using thin, dark eyeliner along the lash line of the upper lid. Eyeliner should be curved up ever-so-slightly at the outside edge of the lid, hence the cat eye appearance.
Some women do not like the cat eye look so opt to make their eyes appear more dramatic by applying several layers of dark colored mascara.
Thick eyebrows have replaced the formerly popular skinny brow look. Strong, full brows create a sexy but take-me-seriously appearance. The heavier eye make-up look clearly supports the fall and winter season’s more layered wardrobe.
Dusty rose, not the old-fashioned pink, eye shadow has replaced the formerly popular taupe eye shadow. Neutral tones are becoming quite prevalent in eye shadow color.
Let’s Get Cheeky
Two tones are becoming popular in cheek color, whether using powder or cream blush application: a pinky bronze or a peachy honey-colored blush. Gone are the bronzy tones that made you look tanned all year.
Now Onto Hair Styles and Trends
Casual hairstyles are the latest season’s trend. Soft, loose styles, whether tied back or loose curls, are both chic and comfortable. There are several popular hairstyles being shown for daywear and special occasions alike. Try one of these trending hairstyles:
· Loosely pulled back hair where the hair is worn half up and half down
· Low, braided ponytail starting at the nape of the neck
· Low, side-swept bun
· Blunt bangs with otherwise long, straight hair
· Short bob-style haircut, with blunt bangs or not
Vary your hairstyle to suit the outfit you choose to wear and the day’s schedule you have planned.
The Finishing Touch of a Manicure and Pedicure
Nail polish is making a strong fashion statement. Nails are no longer shown in a subtle pink or nude color. Rather, they are shiny and bold in color. Short, square shaped nails are replacing the long, pointed look of earlier days. The most frequently shown fall manicure and pedicure colors and tones are:
· Jewel-toned colors like sapphire, emerald, khaki, plum or gray
· Metallic and sparkle colors including gold, silver, copper, gunmetal and bronze
· Bold colors like purple, teal and pumpkin
· Dark nail polish including burgundy or dark red

Every woman has the choice about what her fall beauty look will be, dramatic or subtle. The color palette of make-up she chooses will dictate her finished style and appearance.
