The top beauty trends for fall 2011 all focus on using nature to look fresh, instead of over the top glam. This fall, take your favorite parts of glam (like glitter, we love glitter) and tone it down in a beautiful and organic way (opting for shimmer instead) . In order to best embrace the beauty trends this coming season, choose products that are healthy for you, your skin, and your environment. We’re not saying to go void of any embellishments. Rather, choose embellishments that enhance your natural beauty without hiding it. Shake Your Beauty!
Top Beauty Trends Fall 2011
For Your Eyes
Try Full, Natural Eyebrows

Forget the tweezers and the painful wax this fall. Allow your eyebrows to thicken, just short of going into Frida Kahlo unibrow territory. To get the look of fuller eyebrows without going over the top, try the threading. With threading, no painful waxes or chemicals are used. Instead, threaders use one single, fresh thread and brush it over your eyebrow to pull out the hairs. It’s not painless, but it hurts less than waxing and is better for your skin. Note: do not try threading at home.
Add Sparkle with Metallic Eye Shadow

Metallics are a big Fall 2011 Fashion Trend. From shimmery fall handbags to gorgeous silver eye shadow, a touch of glitter (just a touch) or a touch of glitter’s less out there cousin, shimmer, is enough to make any woman happy. To ensure that your eye shadow lasts throughout the day, try applying an eye shadow base beforehand.
Lengthen Those Lashes
Fake Eyelashes from Sephora
The trend in eyelashes this fall is to lengthen without clumping. Sometimes applying too much primer and mascara can create a more stage make up look rather than a natural appearance. One way to avoid this problem is to brush on your lengthening mascara two to three times and then use an eyelash curler to seal their appearance. Or, you could simply apply fake lashes. Rather than envision purchasing perfectly curled lashes from the drug store, try more natural looking lashes like these from Sephora. Remember, you can take a small pair of scissors to cut the fake eyelashes to make them appear more natural. You can also try just applying them to the edge of your lashes rather than placing them over your entire eyelid.
