Trick or Treat: Fall Essential Looks

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

This year fall fashion and makeup has taken a turn for the scary for some, adventuring into places style hasn’t explored. Fall usually sticks to the same look: flannels, thick scarves, black boots, berry lips…you get the picture. The fall time essentially tricks people into thinking what they need to wear and what makeup they must use to look fall-esq, but fear not reader, I am here to tell you what you need to do in order to treat yourself this autumn time, how you can look like you’ve stepped off of the catwalk without spending much money.

Knee high boots are normally a vital piece to an outfit when October comes, but the catwalk displayed no sign of these this year, instead loafers were hot on sight. Loafers, although aren’t very efficient in wet, snowy weather can be found at low prices on, in real leather which is always preferred when the weather starts to worsen. ASOS also has 10% student discount, cutting down on their retail price, which is always great for a tight student budget. For coming into winter, thigh high boots are becoming more on trend that knee high now, which can be easily dressed up or down in my opinion, and adds a certain sex appeal that mostly all shoes struggle to do.

Another expectation that fall brings is thick cosy scarves, however the ‘skinny scarf’ is now hot on trend this year, wrapping the scarf around once, making sure it hugs your neck, is being seen frequently on models and celebrities. Although thick scarves might be more ideal when winter comes, for the meantime, skinny scarves is a great summer to winter transitioning piece. They can also be found on ASOS for as low as £4!

The berry lip is usually always on the beauty regime when the leaves start to fall, but this year, a massive leap was taken from a dark red to a black. I personally love this trend, and think if you’re confident enough to do it, go for it with everything you’ve got! Looks like this can be seen on celebrities like Kylie Jenner or Pretty Little Liar star Troian Bellisario, who rock it not only on red carpet, but in day to day life. And hey, if they can do, what’s stopping you? Pick up a black lipstick easily at Superdrug. Barry M have a great one for less than £5!

My last beauty secret for this autumn is done simply with any eye shadow you’ve got (although metal colours are usually favoured around this time of year) and a big fluffy eye shadow brush. The technique called: Blending, was seen everywhere throughout fashion week. This is where you simply rotate the brush in small circular motions on the eye shadow already patted on the eye, until its smoky and there’s no harsh lines visible. If you’re having trouble doing this, YouTube tutorials are a great place to learn how to do so!

Don’t be tricked into looking identical to the rest this fall! Treat yourself and feel self empowered, knowing that you’re rocking the trends and feeling amazing doing so.
