Autumn is around the corner and now is a great time to refresh your image and outlook. Want to embrace the cooler weather? Cut a fresh hairstyle, style bold eyes, highlight your summery sun-kissed skin and rejuvenate your face. We’ve compiled four quick and dramatic ways to create your autumn look.
With the cool weather, go for darker shades or perhaps add some dramatic colour with a fiery red. Mid-length to longer cuts come back this season but keep things interesting with lots of layers. If coloring or cutting seems a little too extreme, play around with some of the hottest styles such as a wavy curl or messy up-sweep. Autumn cuts are still fun and bright before the darker and more styled hair comes in winter.
Ditch those heavy and burdensome frames for contact lenses. While you are at it, see how much fun it is to have blue, green, mahogany or even violet-coloured eyes. Coloured contacts can change your looks drastically within seconds.
If you regularly wear glasses, lenses will make you feel and look lighter, brighter and will work perfectly with the blue and green Autumn colours.If you dont normally wear contacts or glasses, you can just have fun with a wild or subtle eye-colour change.
This Autumn, try different makeup shades for a fresh look. Or, for you men, experiment with facial hair. Beards are back, guys, so why not try growing (and maintaining) a full beard. Ladies, stay light and bright with the make up this season choose blues, greens and light greys to highlight your eyes and soft pinks on your cheeks and lips. Natural, softer tones are best during the day but, for the daring girls,try a strong orange-red lipstick for nights out on the town.
Even with summer almost over, we still need to protect our skin from UV damage. Sun worshipping will only lead to wrinkles, crows feet and sunspots no matter what time of year it is. However, just about everyone looks better with a sunny glow or a golden tan. Nowadays it is easy to get a natural looking glow without harming your skin. Self-bronzing lotions and powders will turn your skin from pasty to pretty in minutes. Allow your skin to dry thoroughly before applying a second layer of self-bronzing. Also, wash your hands immediately after applying to avoid staining them.
As the cooler and dryer weather arrives, your skin will need a good moisturiser to avoid cracking and drying. Apply an all over body moisturiser morning and night and your skin will stay smooth and supple. Choose a specialised facial moisturiser with SPV protection for your face not only will it keep your skin smooth, it will help protect you from the suns harmful rays.
