With the return of cooler weather and changing leaves, autumn is a great time to give your look a fresh makeover with new clothes, accessories and makeup, but getting started can be tricky. With fall fashion magazines chock-full of new beauty trends for working girls, navigating your way through what works and what doesn’t isn’t easy. To help you find the perfect middle ground between trendy, affordable and practical, we’ve combed through the new arrivals to bring you the best of fall fashion this year. Here are the nine winners:
1. Bare Skin
With the spotlight back on lips, eyes and hair, stylists kept skin a blank canvas. To recreate the glowing, all-natural tones seen on runways and in magazine spreads, swap your foundation for a tinted moisturizer with built-in SPF.
2. Sleek Hair Buns
Twisting your locks in a tight, ballerina-inspired bun is the ultimate cure-all for bad hair days, and it’s a look you can easily take from the office to happy hour.
3. Thick Brows
Still a staple at fashion shows, strong brows add definition to your features, brighten eyes and take years off your appearance, so put down the tweezers and embrace your natural fringe.
4. Berry Lips
Dark lips return every fall season, but this time, paired with peachy neutrals, the new rich plums, daring crimsons and hazy purples are too hard to resist.
5. Eyelash Extensions
If you splurge on just one thing this season, make it eyelash extensions. Seen on everyone from Hollywood insiders to street fashion bloggers, semi-permanent extensions create long, dreamy lashes that last for months. With eyes that look this gorgeous naturally, your commute to work can be as simple as get up and go.
6. Chic Clips
This year, delicate headbands have been replaced with elaborate gilded clips shaped like flowers, butterflies and vintage jewelry. Throw one on when you need a quick hair fix.
7. Graphic Eyes
For a modern update on the classic cat eye, use a black liquid liner to draw a thick, straight line a little past your lid. To keep your look appropriate for work, stick to nudes and light colors on your lids and lips.
8. Big Bangs
If you’re looking for a bigger change, thick, sultry bangs are back in style. Get them cut to the side for a little less maintenance.
Used to sharpen cheekbones, hide flaws and add contrast, contouring – now easily accessible to everyone with at-home kits – is one of this season’s top makeup tricks.
