Three Beauty Trends We Can’t Wait to Try This Fall

August 22, 2013 at 8:00 am , by

As sad as we are to see summer go, we are so ready to start incorporating fall looks into our beauty routine. Check out our three fave of-the-moment styles from Fashion Week 2013—and try out the fun trends for yourself!


1. Metallic Nails

Metallics are huge for fall, and nail polish is no exception. Shiny gold, silver, or bronze nail polish is a great way to transition your look between seasons. We like OPI’s iridescent shade “Peace & Love & OPI” (beyondpolish.com, $7). For more must-have nail polish colors, click here.

2. A Luminous Glow 

We’ve seen the dewey look time and time again, but this season it’s all about a luminous glow. Get the look with a slightly shimmery cream highlighter, such as this cult classic from Nars. After putting on blush, gently blend the highlighter across the tops of your cheeks to really make your cheekbones pop. Need more help?

3. Blue Eyeshadow

If you couldn’t tell by the first two images, blue-lined lids are a major do this fall. We promise you won’t look like you’re stuck in the ’80s! The key is to focus on just the lower lash line (like this model did) or just the upper lash line (as shown above). Go with a bold cobalt liner or an icy blue cream shadow. Keep the rest of your look super simple: no bright blush and definitely no lipstick. Swipe on clear mascara, and you’re good to go.
