Fashion Forecast: Fall (Beauty) Trends

As August comes to an end, the style-obsessed set (ahem, us) has nothing but New York Fashion Week and September issues on the brain. And beauty trends are no exception. Taking inspiration from the sultry looks seen at February’s runway shows, here’s our list of absolutes once that chill is (finally) in the air:

Big, textured hair
Hair with tons of texture was all over the runway at Rag & Bone and Cushnie et Ochs. How can you get the look? Follow this video tutorial with The Bachelor’s Michelle Money (we love her frank and funny input) from Look TV.

Dark, dramatic lips
This late ’90s look is back in a big way, and designers Christian Siriano, Gucci, and Viktor & Rolf are all in on the dark, rich lip movement. Looking for some off-runway inspiration? Check out how Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere rocks this look.

Even darker nails
It’s not surprising, but dark nails are back for fall. Another great trend: grown up French manicures, as seen on the runway at Rebecca Minkoff.
