If spring is for new beginnings then fall is a time for reflection. Fall is one of the best times to try something new, and beauty is an easy way to do that.

With fall, darker colors often come into play and lips are no exception. Don’t worry about the dark color making you seem too pale or washing you out. Shades like ruby red, merlot wine and deep plum were on all the runways. Pro tip to brighten up a deep red lip: dip a cotton swab in makeup remover and dab it in the center of the lips.

It’s always fun to go for the unexpected, especially if the unexpected is on your eyes. Powder blue and red eyeshadow are two big trends and can be done for everyday. While powder blue may remind you of middle-school or the 90’s, try applying just a bit near the lashes for a small but surprising dash of color.
Add some sparkle and shine to your beauty routine with metallic accents. While gold or silver eyeshadows are popular choices, try stretching your summer tan into fall by using bronzer. Put a fun and unexpected twist on your classic cat eye with metallic eyeliner. Or go for a metallic manicure, using shimmery shades or gunmetal greys to flaunt your fingers.
Pumpkin spice highlights
Yes, the ubiquitous pumpkin spice has made it’s way to hair. While the popular beverage may not be for everyone, this shade refers more to coppery tones that can be adjusted for anyone’s preference.
Not on board with the pumpkin spice craze? Try another fall hue, such as cream soda blonde. Fall is also all about warmth and comfort, with soft coppers, rich browns and buttery blonds taking center stage.
