The leaves are changing colour, the temperature has dropped enough for us to wear boots and there is pumpkin flavored everything everywhere. That’s right, every girls favourite season is finally upon us, its fall baby!

We scoped out Fall fashion week 2015 and kept a close eye on our favourite celebs to find out what the hot beauty trends are for fall, here are our favourites.

Berry Lips

Lipstick season is back with a vengeance! Deep rich berry tones ranging from cherry reds to plums are hot for fall and winter. Darker shades are ideal for the colder weather because there is less chance for smearing.

If your hesitant to try darker lip shades ease your way into it with a sheer gloss and in no time you’ll be confident enough to rock a bold matte lip.

WAXON Fav: Try Kat Von D ‘Everlasting Liquid Lipstick’ to avoid losing your lipstick all over your pumpkin spiced latte.

WAXON Tip: It’s key to use a lip liner before applying your lipstick to avoid blurred edges which is much more noticeable with darker shades.

Glitter Eyes

Glitter eye make-up was a popular choice at Fall fashion Week 2015 and it’s a cute way to add some va va voom to your night time make-up look. Even though it looks amazing it is a quick and easy application over your daytime eye make-up making it the ideal choice for after work cocktails.

WAXON Fav: Napoleon Perdis ‘Cake Eyeliner Sealer’ teamed with Napoleon Perdis ‘Loose Eye Glitter’.

WAXON Tip: Gently pat and press on your glitter eye-makeup. Don’t apply it in strokes like you would with normal eye shadow. Wait for one layer to dry and then add more until you get your desired result.

Brushstroke Nails

One of the hottest looks on the runway for Fall was brushstroke nails and yep you guessed it nail polish that looks like brush strokes. What’s great about this new trend is that its super easy to do at home and it can be as bold or neutral as you dare. Experiment with bright colours to build your own mini masterpiece!

WAXON Fav: CND ‘Lobster Roll’ and CND ‘Cerulean Sea’ brush stroked over a crisp white polish.

WAXON Tip: Do you have a bunch of almost empty bottles of nail polish lying around? Perfect! Less polish on your brush is better to get the ideal brushstroke look.

Glitter Nails

Glitter nail polish isn’t just for sixth grade sleepovers it’s now a popular choice for Fall. Keep it sophisticated by using darker colours like deep reds or ambers, which are a Fall staple year after year. Getting a professional shellac manicure is the ideal choice to avoid glitter flaking off and looking like the glitter fairy has followed you around your home, office and gym.

WAXON Fav: MAC ‘Cocktail Hour’ is the perfect fall shade that’s matches practically everything.

WAXON Tip: If your not too sure about this whole glitter trend, instead of painting all of your nails in glitter just have one statement nail and keep the rest a neutral colour.

Sleek Ponytails

A sleek pony is easy to achieve and works well with statement makeup like berry lips or glitter eyes. Whether it’s a low pony with a middle part or a high pony it suits any face shape. Not to mention if you get caught in the rain your hair isn’t completely ruined making it a popular choice for fall.

WAXON Fav: Living Proof ‘Satin Hair Serum’ use on wet hair before blow drying and straightening, it has a built in heat protectant but will also leave your hair looking shiny and silky smooth.

WAXON Tip: Wear a sleek pony for day three hair, your hairs natural oils will help give it that shine without using any product and nobody will know you’ve been too busy binge watching Grey’s Anatomy to wash your hair!

Hair Accessories

Goodbye Summer, farewell flower crowns. The good news is statement hair accessories are still in! Leather and velveteen hair bands are a popular choice for Fall, which are perfectly teamed with a sleek pony.

Tortoise shell hair clips and combs are also making a strong comeback, raid your Mum’s wardrobe or check out some flea markets for some great vintage pieces.

WAXON Fav: Forver 21 ‘Velveteen Braid’ headband. Available in black or red which both work perfectly for Fall.

WAXON Tip: Help hair combs stay put by using dry shampoo at the root of where you are going to place the hair comb, secure with a little hair spray and you should have the perfect do all day!

Hair: Part hair in the middle and create loose curls using a large barrel tong. Brush out curls and spritz with a light hair mist to give it some hold without compromising its natural movement.
Make-Up: Blue eyeliner is a bold choice but it works well with this look because the rest of Emily’s makeup is minimal and her hair is simple. Achieve this look with a liquid gel liner that wont smudge like Yves Saint Laurents long wear cream eyeliner in Sea Black.
