From eyes to brows to nails, these are the biggest beauty trends of the season.
The first flush of fall is the perfect time to dress up a little more, take a little more care with your appearance and try out some fun new looks. This season, we’re seeing muted tones, softly defined brows and one particular standout nail shade. Read on to discover the top beauty trends we can’t get enough of — and how to get the look at home.
The trend: Modern nudes
The product: Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow Palette
No-makeup makeup continues to reign supreme when it comes to complexion, but now the covetable barely-there look is set to become the season’s biggest eyeshadow trend. Inspired by Too Faced’s Born This Way foundation collection, the brand’s 16-shade nude eyeshadow palette features ultra-flattering hues, from warm neutrals to subtle metallics. Tip: Mix and match shimmering shades to create a scintillating evening look or focus on the matte tones to create a versatile look that take you from day to night.
The trend: Fanned-out lashes
The product: Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Mascara
Full-bodied, voluminous lashes are always in style, but this season, they’re reaching new heights — and this mascara delivers the drama. The large, curvaceous brush makes it easy to add length, thickness and definition to all lash shapes and sizes. Tip: For a feathery, fanned-out effect that mimics falsies, add an extra coat to the lashes at the outer corners.
The trend: Undetectable foundation
The product: SMASHBOX Halo Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 25
For a gorgeously sheer complexion, opt for a tinted moisturizer that does it all. With this oil-free and ultra-breathable hydrator, you get dewy lightweight coverage with a hint of golden reflection, SPF and the glow-enhancing benefits of brightening niacinamide, line-fighting peptides and antioxidant-rich goji berries. Tip: Instead of piling on the products, use this multi-tasker, then spot conceal as needed.
The trend: Soft definition brows
The product: Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil
Gone are the days of artificial-looking brows. Make way for fluffy yet defined arches that frame your face and enhance your natural beauty. Available in 12 smudge-proof shades, this ultra-fine pencil makes creating hair-like strokes easy as pie. Tip: Select a shade that best matches your hair colour and fill in sparse areas for an instantly polished look.
The trend: Denim nails
The product: essie® expressie™ quick-dry nail polish in “air dry”
Looking for a fresh polish shade for your next mani? Try out denim-coloured nails that make an impression, such as this eye-catching slate-blue lacquer. To help you get the look in a flash, this quick-dry polish dries in one minute flat, no top coat required. Bonus: the vegan formula is formulated without eight common irritants such as camphor, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin. Tip: The nifty angled brush makes your DIY mani a breeze — when you switch hands, just be sure to angle the tip down for perfect application.
