For Your Hair

Ask for Honey Highlights & Lowlights

It’s all about the honey, honey. If you are a bleached blonde, go for a warmer look this fall by asking your stylist for chunky, honey toned lowlights. Or, if you are a deep brunette, brighten your face with some honey colored highlights. The color adds depth and character to your hair color.

Create a Loose Braid

This fall’s hairstyles allow us to have a more laid back approach to our daily appearance. Long locks tossed in a messy bun or tied in a long braid are perfect for the natural, relaxed look that we’re striving for this season.

For Your Lips and Cheeks

Try Natural Tinted Gloss

Tinted lip glosses like CoverGirl’s Nature Luxe line are perfect for the fall because they have the moisturizing qualities of lipstick coupled with the sheen of gloss. To find the perfect tinted gloss for this fall, focus on healthy lips by checking for a high spf and natural ingredients.

Pink cheeks are the go to look this fall. A touch of blush mixed with other trends this season like light metallic eye shadow and long lashes exude health and wellness.

    thanks for the update on the trends… and, to be honest, almost a quarter of them look slightly challenging for me. i, too, love some glitter, and glamour, but have found that shimmer works well, and isn’t as … aggressive, insistant, overpowering as glitter can be… and it still carries the same message(at a slightly lower volume) my issue is that my totally natural brows look uberplucked! gotta find some way to fix this, without resorting to the drugstore ‘paint them on’ kits!!

    • TBF

      @cathryn check to see if there’s a benefit brow station in your area (some are in Macys and Ulta).. It costs a bit to get your brows done (like $20 bucks) however, it is worth the price because they teach you how to maintain your brows on your own (step by step instructions). I go to them about 2 or 3 times per year for a refresher and then do my own eyebrows. There’s also some really good eyebrow tutorials on TBF

    I really liked this article. I am interested in trying out the cover girl lip gloss. The colors look gorgeous. I wrote down the name. Thank you so much for it:)

  • What fun to see the 2011 trends! I really have to try the Covergirl lip tints. I love tinted lip balm, and it can actually be pretty hard to find a good shade. I noticed that one of the trends is glittery eye shadow, can women over 40 get away with that? I love glitter and glamour, but I just might be getting to old to pull it off.

  • Love this list! I just wrote about rockin’ the full brow on my blog too! Can’t believe it’s actually a Fall 2011 trend! 🙂
