In contrast to last fall's glamorous, vampy vixen, we're looking forward to embracing a more casual approach to luxury this season. Copper eye shadows, sleek hair styles, texture sprays, and dry shampoos are all in vogue.
If last fall seemed like the start of the party...this fall is like leaving the morning after. Everything's a bit ruined, smudged, or tousled. You're fully committing to a matte look or nothing at all.
Trend #1: The Low Ponytail.
This trend is attainable for every hair type and every situation (especially that lazy morning). But to be honest, it looks newest and most modern when it's sleek and straight.
Trend #2: The Messy Bun.
Imperfect buns and chignons lend highly styled outfits a casual flair. The idea of throwing one's hair up haphazardly and pinning it randomly keeps in theme with the DIY easy element of the season.
Trend #3: Copper Eye shadows.
Earthy tones make a big statement on eyes. Copper is a fresh and glamorous take on gold and it blends with the autumnal palette. It's also great for highlighting on olive skin tones so consider an eye palette that allows a bit of diversity.
Trend #4: Matte Lips.
Contrary to the bitten, stained lip look are full-colour, rich matte lips. The message is if it's bright, it's flat. A poppy lip is a fresh way to inject life and colour into fall's more muted jewel tones.
Trend #5: Matte Nails.
Brace yourself - the fashion world is in full-fledged support of matte nails and they're everywhere. Use OPI's Matte Top Coat over the new San Francisco Collection.
Trend #6: Nail Colours.
Oxblood red is "in" this year. Goodbye cheery, cherry red. This season's crimson is far more sinister.
Metallic: Gold may be the most precious metal, but this season silver, copper, and other alloys rule.
Twists on Black: Some days, black is perfect as is; other times it needs a delicate accent to make it work, for example, half moon or black French tips.
