Fall 2011 Beauty Trends

Fall is just around the corner and we can not wait to put the shorts and flip flops away, and bring out the boots, cute scarfs, and hats! The fall season allows for a beautiful collaboration between tones and textures of make-up and fashion. 

Fresh from the runway, here are some of the things you can expect to see trending in fall 2011:

Muted Nail Polish: 
While Summer's bright lacquers and nail art craze turned heads, it looks like we will be shifting to more muted tones in the colder months. Think less-is-more next time you hit the nail salon! 
Try: Sweetheart by OPI

Red Lips:
A personal favorite of ours, there is nothing that makes a statement like a clean red lip! Gwen Stefani, Dita Von Teese, and Christina Aguilera are just a few of the celebrities who swear by a rockin' red mouth. Tone down the eyes, and let your lips be the focus this fall!
Try: Ruby Woo by MAC

Think golds, silvers, and coppers! Amp up your fall routine by adding hints of this textured iridescent  look. For every day wear, apply metallic shadow to the inner corner of your eyes, use as a liner, or dab onto the center of your lips. 
Try: Gunmetal by Urban Decay

Spider Eyes:
Allow us to introduce you to one of fall's more surprising looks: spider lashes. Making their way down Gucci, Versace, and Valentino's runways, this clumpy (or as MUA's called it backstage: "cloggy" effect) look is something you always thought to avoid, right? Not this fall! Start layering, ladies!
Try: CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara

Classic Pony:
Take a trip down memory lane with this pretty playground inspired look by Gucci. Far from traditional, this pony is sleek on top and secured at the nape of the neck with hair wrapped around it's base. A peek-a-boo feather adds a trendy touch to this chic look.
