10 fall beauty trends you need to try now

Deconstructed Buns

Finally! The beauty gods have shined on the lazy girl. This season, ready-in-minutes purposefully disheveled knots were all over the runways. Anything goes -- from exposed elastics to piece-y tendrils -- you really can’t mess up (ha ha) this undone updo.

DIY: It may seem obvious, but second-day hair is a bonus for this bun. If you can’t go a day without sudsing up, texturizing gum will give your strands the same tousled texture. 

Aquatic Eyes

Here’s the color scheme that every It girl will be rocking. From teal to navy, and every shade of aqua in between, get ready for an Instagram feed full of ocean-inspired shadows.

DIY: If blue eye shadow is giving you flashbacks (and not in the warm and fuzzy #TBT kind of way), try a subtler approach: Edge your eyes with aqua liner instead of saturating your entire lid.

Almost-Nude Nails

For fall polish, the options are pretty much endless. You can go playful with checkerboard nail art or make a moody statement with a rich navy or evergreen hue. But our favorite tones for your talons: the new neutrals.

DIY: Stick to taupes, grays and golds that are just a hint more risqué than basic beige.

High-Gloss Hair

You can never go wrong with healthy-looking hair, whether your go-to hairstyle is a sleek blowout or a polished ponytail.

DIY: The key to shiny strands starts in the shower with gloss-boosting shampoo and conditioner. To keep the finished look from skewing greasy, use a light mist of shine spray on dry strands and avoid touching your tresses. 

Black-Smudged Shadow

This season, designers paid homage to a number of worthy decades -- we saw everything from mod ’60s-style twists to ’70s sparkle.

DIY: Even the ’90s got a little love. Only this go-round, the grunge movement is getting a bit more glamorous with sultry, over-the-top smoked-out shadow

Red Lips

Eye-shadow looks ruled the runways, but when lips did have their moment, it appeared everyone was seeing red.

DIY: You can’t go wrong with any shade --from cherry-stained to rich crimson -- but if you want to find the rouge that best matches your skin tone, we love the celebrity-inspired Exclusive Reds collection from L’Oréal Paris

Glossy Lids

Disco-era sparkle proved a staple on many designer runways, and though we loved ogling all the glitter, it’s the subtler shimmer that gave us good vibes.

DIY: Love this look? Here’s our one-two trick: First, start by dusting your lids with a neutral eye-shadow shade. Then, simply smooth a dab of clear lip gloss over your lids. 

Slept-In Waves

Some lucky girls can actually roll out of bed with hair that looks this gorgeous, but the rest of us have to try a bit harder to create this unkempt coif.

DIY: Braid your hair into sections -- for thin hair, you can get away with just two braids; thicker hair may need a few more. Spritz your strands with a heat-protectant spray and allow them to dry fully. Heat the braid by running a flatiron over the length of your hair. Run your fingers through each braid to separate the waves and set with hairspray.

Bold Lines

Good news: If you’ve been practicing your cat eye all year long, you’re in luck. This graphic liner look isn’t going anywhere. In fact, it’s bolder than ever with accentuated “flicks” in the deepest, darkest black.

DIY: To draw this dramatic line like a pro, you’ll want a felt liner with a flexible tip. Another must-have: ultra-lengthening mascara

Goldie Locks

Summer may have ended pretty abruptly, but you can take your time transitioning from beachy highlights to fall-toned tresses. This autumn, it’s all about golden brown and flaxen blonde.

DIY: Inject a hint of honey into your strands with an at-home kit that comes with its own application tool. Our pick: Preference Glam Lights.
