The weather in the UK is so changeable at the moment one minute we have beautiful blue skies and it's a warm sunny day and the next there is a chill in the air and raindrops falling on our heads. I'm not ready for Summer to be over just yet and I'm really hoping we get a nice September as it's our wedding in three and a half weeks but controversially I'm also looking forward to Autumn arriving.
As the temperature cools and the pretty golden leaves drop from the trees it offers the perfect opportunity to re-discover your Autumn fashion and beauty favourite's that have been neglected over the Summer months. To me, it feels like shopping without having spending any money as it's also exciting finding products you forgot you had.
This has got me thinking about what hair and beauty trends will grace the pages of our favourite magazines and fill the windows of our favourite shops hoping to tempt us in. Here's what I think will be this years favourite's:
When people say highlights they often think of Summer and brightening their hair because it's warmer outside but why not mix things up and do this during Autumn instead? A flash of blonde or auburn running through a hair style looks gorgeous and is perfect for this time of year because it mimics the changing colour's of the leaves on the trees and would look stunning with berry tones. Check out some products used to colour hair here.
I mentioned berry tones earlier and it's a must during Autumn for nails as well as red. It's a classic and one of my favourite looks which I repeat every year without fail. Sometimes red can be a bit daunting to wear but something deep and rich like Sinful Nail Polish in Dangerous is a great shade. I also love to wear purple if I feel like mixing things up a little and this Attitude Polish in Temptation is really pretty. To have a more unique look but still fit in with this trend why not try adding your own nail art such as a hint of gold sparkle?
I love adding texture to my hair whether it be beachy waves or curls and although I do this all year round for some reason I tend to do this more in Autumn/Winter. This year I think this look will be popular rather than the sleek straight look but I think high gloss and choppy layers will also be common. A simple high ponytail with plenty of volume or a down do will be the look this year. You can add texture to your hair by using a variety of styling tools to create different looks.
Smokey eyes are something I think will be big in Autumn this year, in particular grey, purple and cranberry looks (not necessarily combined). These colours shout Autumn to me as the party season approaches I think the smokey eye will become more popular with a defined black flick or shimmery brown/gold liner. The berry lip is always around during this time of year and I love this look but I think purple lip shades will be more popular. MAC Recently released a gorgeous new deep purple shade in a Limited Edition collection and it's only a matter of time until others follow suit.
I look forward to seeing how many of my predictions are true as Autumn approaches!
