Metallic Accents

“I think we’re going to see a lot of metallic accents this fall, especially with nails and makeup. I suggest adding a touch of Ceremony of Secrets from Smith & Cult to any mani to spice it up and make it on trend.”

Bold Eyes

"If you’re like me and love a bold eye, try a soft smokey eye using Hourglass’s Graphik Eyeshadow Palette in Vista and our new Caution Extreme Lash Mascara. The palette has the perfect shades for fall, including burnt orange, moss green, shimmery brown and matte black. Caution will complete the look by giving intense volume and a lift to your lash."

Dark Lips

"Fall is the perfect time to play with darker eye and lip looks. If you’re a bit more timid when it comes to wearing a dark lip, I’d recommend testing the waters with a lipstick that's a bit more sheer like Hourglass’s GIRL Lip Stylo. I love using my finger to blot a bit of Warrior, a deep plum shade, into my lips. The great thing about the formula is that you can layer it if you want more payoff."

Braids and Ponytails

Glossy, Straight Hair

“My fall trend prediction is super-shiny, glossy hair! To get this, smooth strands with the new ghd platinum plus styler and seal in with TRESemme Micro Mist Hairspray in smooth. Keep the style for days by sleeping on The Hollywood Silk Solution Silk Pillowcase, which keeps moisture in the hair while you sleep and prevents the friction that can lead to frizz and breakage.”

STYLECASTER | Fall 2018 Beauty Trends | Chocolate-y Nudes
Chocolaty Nudes

“I think chocolaty nudes are going to be a hot color for fall and are a trend that everyone can pull off. Everyone tends to go more into the neutral family for makeup once the weather gets a little colder. We do this with fashion too, wearing darker colors like black, burgundy, brown/tan and so forth.

I am loving the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Les Chocolat Liquid Lipsticks right now. They come in a couple nude shades, as well as some with more pink/red hues. I especially like the shade Dose of Cocoa. It is a pinkish-brown lip color and good for all skin tones. You can also play with a variety of tones within the neutral family, using more terra-cotta and brown shades on the eyes, paired with Voluminous Original Mascara in Burgundy for a subtle pop on the lashes and finishing with the more pinky-brown on the lips.”

STYLECASTER | Fall 2018 Beauty Trends | Extended Tan
Extended Tans

"With fall just around the corner, you can say goodbye to your sun-kissed tan. Or do you have to? Applying a great bronzer ensures you keep your fabulous tan throughout the fall season. I would recommend using a large powder brush to create a 3-shaped motion across your face. Start at your hairline, then slowly drag your powder brush to the temples of your face, toward the bottom of your cheekbones and end at your jawline.

This will create that gorgeous summer glow, which we don’t want to say goodbye to. To achieve this look, I recommend NARS’s award-winning bronzing powder. This product creates the look of perfectly sun-kissed skin and is great for every skin tone."

STYLECASTER | Fall 2018 Beauty Trends | Dewy Glow
Dewy Glow

"There’s nothing better than a dewy glow this fall season. As the temperature drops, your skin may feel flaky. It is very important to keep your face hydrated when it is cold outside and the heater is blasting. A rich day/night cream packed with essential oils, fruit extracts, and cocoa butter will help your skin retain moisture and mitigate the harsh effects of the cool weather. To achieve a dewy complexion, I would recommend Youth to the People’s Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream, which is powered by adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms."

STYLECASTER | Fall 2018 Beauty Trends | Bright Blonde Shades
Bright Blonde Shades

“Fashion show runways were my inspiration for my favorite fall hair trend this year—bright, ashy-blonde shades—a style that will be extremely popular this season! To avoid yellowing or brassiness for blondes and enrich darker hair colors without the use of harsh chemicals, try the new Bella Spirit Indigo Toning Cleansing Conditioner. It will control warmth and brighten the cool tones in all hair colors! This formula combines the properties of WEN’s innovative cleansing conditioner with exclusive herbal botanical waters, amino acids, peptides and antioxidant-rich four-tea complex to help strengthen and protect strands.”

STYLECASTER | Fall 2018 Beauty Trends | Exaggerated Cat Eye
Exaggerated Cat Eye

"For fall I’m thinking an exaggerated yet wearable cat eye for fall. Think, Sofia Loren meets Versace SS19 runway show.

I suggest lining with a gel liner and then adding a layer of shadow on top for stay proof power. Use a pointed quip with Koh Gen Do cleansing water to remove any excess liner or mistakes. Have fun with this trend. Try doing it in different colors. Use your makeup to express your mood." -Jenna Kristina, celebrity makeup artist to Madeline Brewer, Dove Cameron and more.
