The MDC Guide to the Top 5 Fall Beauty Trends
Every year as fall rolls around, we’re singularly excited for one thing: autumn trends. Whether it’s buying way too many scarves, pinning one too many pumpkin recipes we’ll never make, or breaking out every dark lipstick and chocolate eyeshadow we own, we dive head first into the season. This year, we dove even deeper into the hottest trends by partnering with Beautystreams to bring you the best of Fall 2013’s trends. From goth to gliteratti, we covered it all, bringing runway to real way with our step-by-step guides. Here’s a glimpse at the highlights.
It’s the trend that perfectly wraps retro glamour and major cool factor into one pretty little package, and the look we’re definitely obsessed with. From the runways of Carolina Hererra to our real-girl interpretation, this bold look is perfect for a celebratory night out.
Loudly and colorfully parading down the runways of Vivienne Westwood with streaks of electric color, this fall’s punk resurgence oozed of Joan Jett attitude. For the everyday take, we interpreted the brazen look into a shock of bright liner and a punch of bold lipstick. Rock the real-life look at your next party or go for the runway version this Halloween!
Languid, luxurious, with a cool-factor that only the French can achieve, this fall trend is inspired by the chic ladies of past and present. Seen on the runway at Gucci, the runway take was equal parts sultry eyes, muted lips and slicked back strands. For our own interpretation, we relaxed the look with undone hair, and just the slightest bit of color on the lip, to steer from stark glamazon to chic and effortless.
This “gloomy cool” trend was spotted on the runways of Donna Karan’s Fall 2013 show, and we’re mesmerized by its sultry appeal. Dark smoky eyes, slicked back ponytails, and nude lips were trademarks of the look, and our real-life version didn’t stray far from its inspiration. We love this trend for date nights, or special events that need a boost of gothic romance.
Sometimes more is more, and this fall’s glitterati trend held that adage close to its sequin-encrusted heart. With nods to David Bowie, and the excess of 70’s nightclubs, this runway look—seen at House of Holland, Diane von Furstenberg and more—is not for the color-shy. For the real-life version, we focused our pop of glitter on the eyes, and opted for a bright, face-brightening pink lip.
We’d love to know, which of these five fall trends do you like most? Will you give any of them a whirl?
