Times change, seasons change and fashion does, too! (Thankfully – the ’90s can keep their neon mascara.) So, switching out your beauty regimen should coincide pretty easily with switching out your seasonal wardrobes. But how do you know how to make it work? We’ll tell you!
One thing that’s in style every season is a clear complexion and a good foundation. Keep moisturizing, exfoliating and fighting blemishes. And make sure you’re not using the same shade of foundation year-round. It can either make you look too pale in the summer or too dark in the winter. Not good! Once you’ve got the facial basics down, dive into the details:
To go along with those fabulous leopard-print heels you’re wearing, try neutrals and browns on your eyes, lips and cheeks. The prints are bold and so should you be. You can also take a walk on the wild side with hand-painted or transfer prints for your nails. Rawr!
For once, they’re a good thing. Cobalt blue is especially hot – think bright, bold true blue, almost like a sapphire. For a dramatic eye, try an opaque shade on your lids with some black mascara. Or, if you’re not quite that daring, mix it into your nail polish collection.
Step into the spotlight with metallic shades this fall. Sparkle with silver, glimmer with gold and be brilliant in bronze. Whether you go for a light layer or serious shimmer, these hues work perfectly on your eyes and nails.
Eyelashes: the only facial hair a girl wants. And right now, the more and the bigger, the better. Mascara is no longer a one-size-fits-all product. Whether you need to lengthen, curl or thicken your lashes, there’s a tube out there for you. Take it one step further with some false lashes for an extra bold look.
Volume is the name of the game when it comes to hairstyles this fall. Get pumped with volumizing shampoos, conditioners and styling products that will give you a lot of lift. And if your style starts to sag, bulk it back up with a dry shampoo.
The fashion industry has brought back the ’30s with the appearance of half-moon manicures on the runway. Think either an unpainted or different-colored semicircle right above your cuticle. Perfect for two-tone animal prints, no?
There you have it – fall fashion for your face and nails! Day or night, simple or dramatic, these trends can put you on the cutting edge of seasonal beauty.
