2017 Fall Beauty Rundown

What comes to mind when you think of fall? I think of a return to routine, school runs, more traffic and the onslaught of too many pumpkin spice-related products.

Fall also signals cooler and drier weather, and fashion that leans towards richer and darker tones. Instead of the lighter more natural looks favoured in the summer, the drier weather allows for more makeup coverage and bolder colours. This year, metallics dominated the 2017 fall designer runways. Below are some fall essentials that will help you say goodbye to summer.

SKINCARE

The cool and dry weather calls for extra hydration to keep your skin looking gorgeous

KIEHL’S – Ultra Facial Moisturizer

This is the classic must-have moisturizer that provides all-day hydration during both the humid summer months as well as the drier fall and winter seasons. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t already!

 

 

LA MER – The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum

This serum provides continuous hydration and energy through its sea-sourced actives of The Deep Hydration Ferment, a blend of green, brown and red algae. Also containing the powerful antioxidant Lime Tea Concentrate, it protects against the fall elements, allowing skin to thrive and any lines are naturally softened and repaired.  


HAUSCHKA – Hydrating Cream Mask

The creamy texture is heavier and more moisturizing, protecting dry skin from harsh weather. It retains moisture while supporting the skin’s natural process of oil protection. Ingredients include nourishing almond, avocado and jojoba oils that hydrate the outer skin layer while rose wax soothes and protects.

 

EYES

On the fall 2017 runways, metallic eyeshadows dominated. Not just delicately applied either, but boldly swept across lids that made for striking feminist statements.

 

CHARLOTTE TILBURY – Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise in Silver Leopard – Eyeshadow

Charlotte has always been inspired by the hynoptic gaze of cats and how their eyes emit light outwards. Luckily, she channeled this inspiration into this glittering gunmetal grey eyeshadow, which became a best-seller. Use it to create a sultry, feline look just in time for Halloween and the upcoming party season.  

 

STILA – Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in various colours

If you thought that metallic shades only came in silver or copper, these beautifully-packaged liquid eye shadows from Stila will make you think again. There are eleven shades in total to help you create that glowing, shimmery look. The water-infused texture glides on effortlessly and dries smoothly, instantly locking in maximum sparkle with minimal smudging.

 

DIOR – Metalizer – Fall 2017 Limited Edition – Eyes & Lips Cream Shadow

This latest innovation from Dior does double-duty with a creamy, ultra-pigmented formula that lights up both the eyes and lips with a metallic shine. It can be applied alone, or on top of existing eyeshadow or lipstick to add extra shine. In keeping with the metallic theme, my pick is the versatile Copper Power shade.

 

LIPS

For days on which you want to forgo the strong eyeshadow, why not move the attention to your lips instead? Lips didn’t shy away from bold colours either on the fall runways. Deep berry shades of purple, burgundy or blackened plum, were seen adorning the lips of models at dozens of shows. Such a strong lip is best paired with minimal makeup, or if you want to imitate the runways, go all out with a heavy dark eyeliner or colourful eyeshadow.

 

BECCA COSMETICS – Lush Lip Colour Balm in Black Violet

Becca Cosmetics is a line that has attracted much love recently and it’s easy to see why with this beautiful shade. It’s simple and clean packaging stands in stark contrast to the drama of this deep berry shade. This is a balm however, so don’t be intimidated by the strong shade. It has buildable pigments that still allow your natural lip colour to shine through, and you can layer it however you like to create your own perfect shade.

 

 

CHANEL – Rouge Allure Velvet in Nightfall

This luscious looking lipstick is part of Chanel’s 2017 Fall-Winter Collection, which was inspired by Lucia Pica, Chanel’s global creative makeup and colour designer, and her road trip to the Californian coast. This shade is in line with the rich berry colours popular this season, but offers a more sensual matte finish.

 

MARC JACOBS – Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Trax

Inspired by the design house’s Fall 2017 runway, this limited-edition creamy black-burgundy lipstick delivers 10-hour wear in just one sensual swipe. Its dark-burgundy pigment appears almost black, and looks especially stunning paired with neutral shadows.

NAILS

 

YVES SAINT LAURENT – La Lacque Couture – Fall Look 2017 Nail Lacquer in Bronze Fever

To complete the metallic look coat your nails in this rich bronze colour, inspired the nightclubs of the 70s. This exclusive lacquer has an extra holographic shimmer courtesy of the multi-coloured pearl effect polish that reflects light like disco balls, for an ultra-sparkling manicure.
