4 Hair and Makeup Trends to Flaunt This Fall
Everyone knows that fall is the perfect season for a mini-makeover – hey, even the leaves change color – so Salon Eva Michelle rounded up four top hair and makeup looks to rock this autumn.
The expert designers operating at the chic salon above Newbury Street worked with models to showcase their skills and offer simple advice to pass along in the chair to your designer or recreate at home. Whether you’re being bold or keeping it classic, these tips will help you fall in love with a new style.
HAIR, BRYANT ANTHONY, ARTISTIC DESIGNER –Say so long to summer humidity and hello to fall fringe! Be daring with a blunt bob and beautiful bangs to frame your face. Add a lowlight to keep dimension and warmth in your hair for the coming winter. This year, roots are all the rage; try softening your base one to two levels lighter to keep a natural, soft look.
MAKEUP, GARETH WARD – Less is definitely more. Keep it simple with light eye makeup, mixing warm and cool browns on the outer creases of your eyelids. Focus on a clean, fresh complexion by using a translucent powder and a touch of highlighter on the high points of your face, contouring your nose and cheeks. Pair this with a light, neutral colored blush and use a swipe of natural colored gloss. Tip: save yourself some dough and ditch the bronzer in the cooler months. No one expects you to maintain sun-kissed skin in October!
HAIR, BRYANT ANTHONY, ARTISTIC DESIGNER – Change is good – but it doesn’t need to be drastic. Step up your game with warm tones to enrich your natural hair color and ask your designer for a gloss to create more shine. Get a versatile, textured bob to provide a modern and youthful style. To add a little asymmetrical edge to your look, use a molding product to slick one side back.
MAKEUP, JACKIE WRIGHT – Embrace your inner autumnal vixen with shades of burgundy. A shimmery maroon eyeshadow in the center of your lids gives a pop of color, while a shiny champagne shadow on the inner corner of your eyes and tear ducts keeps you looking fresh-faced and vibrant. Go for a bold, dark lip with matching liner and lipstick or stain to prevent smudging.
HAIR, MIGUEL NICOLAU PIRES, ADVANCED DESIGNER – Don’t cut your long story short. If you’re not ready to part ways with your flowing locks, then don’t! Be sure to ask your designer for internal “invisible” layering so that your hair still has movement without feeling weighed down. Longer hair also allows for accessorizing. Distressed braids with exposed gold bobby pins makes a statement; as the cooler seasons approach, blondes should seek sandy or beige hues that compliment their skin tone after the summer glow has faded.
MAKEUP, JACKIE WRIGHT – Find inspiration from traditional fall colors like burnt orange, brick, spice and rust tones. If you go for a brighter red tone, blending with deep browns can help keep it from going over the top. Use the same colors on top and bottom lids and keep darker colors on outer edges of eyes. Blend everything with fluffy brush so there are no harsh lines. Tackle natural brows with brow gel and get a cute lip look with neutral lip liner blended all over for sheer coverage. No blush necessary; use a light powder on the outer edges of cheekbones, temples and forehead to create a soft glow.
HAIR, TINA SULLIVAN, ADVANCED DESIGNER – Rich, vibrant brunettes reign supreme this fall. Adding subtle hints of gold (“baby lights”) can give depth and soften up any dark, flat tone caused from sun exposure. The best part of chocolate brown? This classic fall color never goes out of style!
MAKEUP, GARETH WARD – Achieve sultry eyes with cooler colors. Using a touch of purple will make your eyes look greener. Pair with a darker eye pencil to line just the outside of the eyes at the top and bottom of the lid to create the illusion of larger eyes. For a glowing complexion, stick with a neutral blush, a bit of contour around the face and a highlighting powder on the upper cheekbones and below the brow. As a rule of thumb, go with a light lip and matte finish when dealing with dramatic eye makeup. You want to keep the focus on those pretty peepers!
