I spent some time over the weekend flipping through a few September issue mags, and I found myself getting excited over the new beauty trends for fall more than anything. Yes, the clothes are fun, but nothing can change your mood or look quicker than a fun new shade of lipstick or polish. Don't you agree? The added bonus is you don't have to spend loads of cash to update your beauty stash! I love to add a few fresh polishes and lipsticks to my collection every season, and it is also a fall tradition for me to pick out a new perfume (it is usually what I ask for on my birthday). Below are a few trends and items I have my eye on, and since it is now September, I am giving myself the green light to start making some purchases!
The first thing that caught my eye was the amazing bottle of this perfume by Nest. Once I read the description, I was even more intrigued: "This invigorating floral fragrance is composed of Amazon Lilies, tangerine, lime, driftwood and white musk." I need to get my nose to a bottle asap to see what this smells like! With the bottle being pretty pricey, I might settle for the rollerball instead.
2. Jewel tone nails
Bopping around to all the major polish players' fall collections, you will find one common theme: jewel tones! Deep shimmery shades evoking rubies, emeralds and sapphires are high on my list for fall manis and pedis! My three faves? Deborah Lippmann "Laughin' to the Bank" , Butter London "Indigo Punk", and O.P.I. "Embarca-Dare Ya!"
Such pretty shimmery neutrals on this, with a great matte navy that would make a unique smoky eye. I always love to check in on BB's latest collections.
3. Deep plum lips
I'm leaving the classic red and burgundy lips of last season behind and am looking for the perfect deep plum to swipe on this fall. Promising choices: L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in "Plush Plum", and Butter London Lippy in "Black Cherry".
What beauty trends are you looking forward to this fall?
