With so many options this fall, it seems to be hard to go wrong. Fashion has really made it easy for us this year. There is so much to choose from: the classic red lip and the less classic deep plum and wine color, the 'oh so trendy' black smoky eye is coming with a twist this year, as green, blue and red bring something new to the table, eyeliner seems to be the highlight of the season: not only black, but also blue, turquoise, green, yellow and purple. Looking like you just escaped a hurricane isn't going to be a problem anymore, as beauty stylists say - that's what we want the girls to look like this season. Brows exaggerated to the maximum with Chanel culminating the trend on the runway. You are more of a classic-elegant person? There's a lot for you as well. The 'faux bob' being a new and very interesting alternative to your everyday hair. Also, braid away! Braids seem be another 'it' this season. And, just like the stylists: get as creative as you can. I personally really liked the icy accents on the eyes, giving them that special pop. Gold and brown are colors incorporated in make up looks as well as fashion. But my favorite of all is the nude look and the natural hair.
As I don't want to bore anyone who reads this, I'm just going to write a little about the trends I personally found most noteworthy and interesting. Starting off with my favorite:
Bare Face Beauty aka Nude
With this trend, good skin is key. Invest in a good cleanser and be careful about what you eat so you can wear as little make up as possible. My trick is also having a good foundation that will cover up any imperfections, but still look as natural as possible.
The Colorful Eye
This trend has really given us freedom this year. One has so much to choose from, ranging anywhere from colorful mascara and eyeliner, to colorful smoky eyes and color blocking.

*Stella McCartney* *Anna Sui*
Eyeliner With a Twist
The classic black eyeliner is now shaped into so many variations and even given the freedom of color.
*Michael Van der Ham* *Anna Sui*
The Dark& The Red Lip
In my opinion, trend number one is the red lip. Such a trend for every season, it's been going around for years and will unlikely become out of fashion. However, every year the stylists seem to give it a darker twist, especially around this time of the year.
*Bottega Veneta* *House of Holland*
This is possibly one of the most simple trends this season. So simple to do, but it makes such a difference. Just apply some pink blush and you are good to go! A faster, but a bit more painful method is to pinch your cheeks. Ouch! I prefer blush. :)
The Fake Bob
Last but not least, I really really like the fake bob trend, as it does not require cutting the hair. It's just a hairdo that speaks for itself.
These were my favorite beauty trends for autumn 2012. Hope you liked them.
Have a good rest of the day!
