9 (Easy!) Fall Beauty Looks You've Got to Try
'Tis the season for wearable dark-hued manis! Celebrity nail stylist Jenna Hipp, who created the gorgeous deep black cherry look on Lea Michele for the Scream Queens L.A. premiere using “This Is My Jam” from her own polish line. “It contains the perfect amount of purple, burgundy and brown, which complements all skin tones from very fair to dark,” Hipp told PEOPLE. “The depth of the shade creates contrast which can feel neutral, casual and approachable.”
BRIGHT LIP WITH AN EYELINER FLICK
Pink is the new red. Pair a poppy pink lip with winged-out liner to create an amped old-Hollywood glam moment, like Emily Blunt's from the Sicario London premiere. The brighter the lip (and the more precise the flick), the better!
Cooler temps mean naturally flushed cheeks. Fake the look (no frostbite required) by reaching for rose-colored cream blush. Simply tap your favorite formula (in a slightly darker shade than your go-to hue for an added pop) on the apples of your cheeks to the tips of your hairline for a look as gorgeous as Rooney Mara's at the London premiere of Pan.
Too chicken to chop? If you have medium-length strands, try out the faux look, like Kerry Washington did at the Emmy Awards. Hair stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew recommends curling your hair with a 1-in. curling iron to create subtle waves, and then pin them underneath your hair, toward the nape of your neck, for a sexy, unexpected do update.
BROWN GLOSSY LIP
Yep, brick lips are back. Give them a more modern vibe like KeKe Palmer did by choosing a gloss rather than a lipstick for a lighter, more youthful look. Makeup artist Brandy Allen used M.A.C Cosmetics C-Thru Lipglass and lip liners in Cork and Spice on the star.
Tons of stars are trying a new eyebrow-skimming style this season (just check out Ciara's blunt bangs) and these stars prove fringe really does has its benefits. “I thought I'd try something different because I've been experimenting with the short hair,” Ciara told PEOPLE. “I think sometimes when fall comes it's fun to try [new looks].”
Scared of moody shades, like Holland Roden's seen here? Don't be, says celebrity makeup artist Jenn Streicher, who works with stars like Elisabeth Moss. “It's easier to wear a pop of color if all your other makeup is really minimal, so you don't look like you're wearing a ton of makeup,” she told PEOPLE. “It's the end of summer, so most of us have a nice bronzed skin, and it's the perfect combination to do a bold lip with a fresh face.”
TWO-TONE SMOKY EYE
Smoldering black liner? So last season. Upgrade your look by using two unexpected seasonal shades: navy and rose. To recreate Jessica Chastain's dramatic moment from the opening night of Otello in N.Y.C., brush on your lighter shade (in this case, pink) to cover your entire eyelid. Then brush on the deeper tone (navy) into the outer corners of your eyelid and smudge. The colors should look bold together, not heavy, so be sure to blend, blend, blend!
Thought you'd done it all when it came to your fingertips? A non-shiny finish will feel surprisingly fresh. Celebrity nail stylist Elle swiped on Dermelect Cosmeceuticals' Matte-Iculous Matte Base & Top Coat over Red Carpet Manicure's “Entourage” for an update to last fall's ubiquitous navy.
