Making Monday Pretty: Fall Beauty Trends August 24 2015

We know it's hard to believe with the steamy weather we've been having, but fall is fast approaching and our shelves at Augustina are starting to fill up with cashmere and shearling once again. So to start transitioning our brains into fall mode, here is a preview of some of our favourite fall beauty trends that we will certainly start working into our routines asap.

Fresh Flush

This is definitely the first and easiest one to start wearing as we transition to fall. The look is very bare faced with concealer only where you need it, a swipe of mascara and gloss and then a heavy application of blush across the cheeks. You want it to look like you've just stepping in from the cold.

Our product pick: Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee

Graphic Liner

For fall, liner on the runways was anything from a simple flicked cat eye to crazy black smudged and lines surrounding the entire eye area. Since we're pretty sure none of us are walking around with much more than a graphic cat eye we will take our inspiration from there. If you're looking for a more bold look for evening we love the eyeliner look from Chanel on the right.

Our product pick: Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner

Golden Eye

If eyeliner isn't your thing, the other most prominent eye trend was heavy metallics. We spotted some silver but gold was definitely the favourite metal to adorn the eyelids. Whether you want to go simple with a wash of gold shadow across the lid or wild for evening with full on glitter or gemstones is totally up to you.

Our product pick: Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow or ColourPop Eye Shadow in Get Lucky

Vampire Lips

One of our favourite looks for fall (and most dramatic!) is black or almost black lips with an otherwise bare face. We this this will look ultra chis with our new roll neck sweater from New Scotland, leather leggings and Loeffler Randall Carmen boots!

Our product pick: Kat Von D Studded Lipstick in Motorhead or Slayer or Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Guess or LAX - you can't beat the price of these, especially for a shade that you may not wear too often, and they last on the lips forever!

Have a beautiful Monday everyone!
