Ready for fall? Your makeup bag probably is. Gone are the days of the pastel shadows and orange lipsticks that became your staples in the spring. This season is the perfect time to experiment with pigmented liquid liners and rich-hued shadows instead. Fall 2014 beauty trends are all about extremes: either fresh-faced and neutral, like at Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors, or extra-bold, like the “morning after”-inspired shadow at Missoni.

When it comes to hair trends, updos reigned supreme, and they ranged from wild to understated. This season, designers proved that updos don’t have to be conventional. Braids in particular were all over the Fall 2014 shows, from soft and romantic plaits (at Preen and Pucci) to futuristic and creative twists (at McQueen and Marchesa). But the ‘do that made the lazy girl in us rejoice more than any other? Buns. Diane von Furstenburg’s Orlando Pita explained, “The texture should look easy. Not messy, but not perfectly done.”

If you’re looking to buy an eye shadow in fall’s It colour, make sure you go with green. Seen on the runways at Dior, Elie Saab and Derek Lam, this is the hue of the season, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different shades. But if that’s not your thing, the earth tones seen at Alberta Ferretti and Hermes might be. Not to be confused with the no-makeup look, this can be achieved using shadows and stains in shades that are found in nature—browns, beiges and greys. To get the look at Marc Jacobs, François Nars used beige lip products that were “pushed on with a finger so there is no line.” How’s that for convenient?

No matter if you’re drawn to the rave-inspired glittery makeup at Rodarte, or you just can’t shake your love for the fresh-faced looks at Isabel Marant, Fall 2014 beauty trends are all about polar opposites, so there really is something for everyone.
