Fall Bride To Be

Tips and trends for saying, “I do” this autumn

Summer is known as wedding season, but fall weddings are not without their special charm, with nature’s breathtaking color changes and the crisp hint of cool weather to come. Here are some fall bridal trends to keep your special day on-point:
 
The Dress
This season, bridal gown trends include lace, long sleeves and royally-inspired high necks. Other common threads mimic more recent fashion revivals; off-the-shoulder styles and bell sleeves give a fresh twist to bridal wear. Other trends borrowed from the runways are ruffles and cascading tiered bottoms, adding a little more romance to this year’s fall weddings. Dress colors this season shift from the classic all-white, to ivory, champagne and even blush tones to accompany the deeper hues of fall.
 
The Face
This fall’s bridal makeup steers towards a more subtle kind of drama. A softer smokey eye done in a shimmering neutral palette and finished with black mascara and liner goes well with the warm golden colors of the season. Peach blush on the cheeks and a nude lip create a beautifully natural look. Fall brides are going for glowing skin with pink champagne highlighters and warm blushes, like JAFRA’s Powder Blush in Havana Spice, paired with a simple eye and a plum-colored lip, like our Full Coverage Lipstick in Berry Vamp.
 
The Friends
While the bride is the star of the show, she definitely wants her bridesmaids to feel beautiful, too! This fall bridesmaid’s dress trends may leave you with a dress you’d actually wear again. ;) This year’s options are modern, chic and stylish. Look for one-shoulder or off-the-shoulder styles that are tea length or floor length and ruffled tiers and unique sleeves to match the bride. Color trends range from deep neutrals to burgundies, both of which look amazing with the blush champagne trends for the bride.

The Décor
This season’s decorative inspiration comes from Mother Nature herself, using the Pantone Color of the Year, Greenery, and other forest-like hues as a jumping off point for invitations, table settings and more. Earthy neutrals are another fall-perfect wedding palette with touches of burgundy as the perfect pop of color. Coming out on top, metallics are the big winner in fall wedding décor. Add rose gold or copper accents for some sophisticated sparkle on your wedding day.
 

Fall 2017 Hair Trends

Inspiration for new your new fall look

Fall is the perfect time to ditch your old hair style and go for something fresh and exciting! Even if you’re not heading back to school anymore, you can still get a back-to-school hair reboot. Check out the cut, color and style inspiration below to keep your locks on trend for next season.
 
Cuts
A blunt bob with bangs promises to be THE cut of 2017.  It’s so popular on Pinterest and Instagram right now that even the most adventurous among us might consider a reinterpretation of this classic. Leave it a little shaggy for a tousled look. A mid-length waves with warm brown highlights are another fall staple coming back into the fold and curly girls everywhere are embracing their natural textures with fun cuts and braids.
 
Colors
When it comes to color, there is a soft subtle shade of pink springing up on a lot of celebrity heads right now. There is also a slew of more sophisticated and sultry color combos for fall, like sherbet shades of peach, grombre (grey ombre) and rose-gold blonde. Oh, and the good news for those us who can’t get to the colorist very often is that roots are still having a moment. Think like 3 to 5 inches of natural color.
 
Styles
This fall’s hairstyle trends offer a few throwbacks from the past, including long, straight, center-parted Cher hair and romantic braids. Braids in general are everywhere right now,  from intricate micro braids to tossing a few random plaits in with beachy waves. A pretty little detail from the Fashion Week runways are black ribbons, big and small, tied onto the tops of ponytails, chignons and braids. Double or juxtaposed texture looks are also having a moment, referring to a chic slicked back look on top and textured or teased look at the bottom. 

Fight the Fall Rut

Tips for staying up when the temperature goes down

As temperatures drop and the days grow shorter and darker, the weather has its way of slowing us down and yet, there’s so much more to do! To make the cool weather transition easier, take some time to organize your life and put things in place that will help you maintain your healthy glow from the summer months all year long. These small, but significant changes will help you maintain your mood.
 
Stay Healthy
Getting sick is one of the most time consuming beauty bummers ever. Make hand sanitizer a constant companion--in your desk drawer, in your bag, in your car, everywhere! Get plenty of rest as the weather changes, especially if your body is thrown off by the time change. Keep the heat down (around 66° F) in your bedroom and you’ll sleep better and stay healthier. Pile on cozy quilts and comforters for warmth.  Move your workout inside when the weather calls for it. Not only will you stay in shape, but exercise is the best way to keep your mood happy and positive throughout the season.
 
Stay Organized
Clutter can stress you out. When the weather changes, pick a day to go through your closet and make sure that the things you need for fall are clean and ready to wear When you clean house be sure to pay attention to what you do and don’t need. Get rid of anything you’re over from last fall season to make space for what you love now. Plus, you can make a list of new must-have fall items to shop for.
 
Stay Moisturized
It’s easy to put off self-care when you’re busy and it’s cold out. Besides, you’re covered up most of the time anyway, right? Wrong! Your skin and hair need even more TLC when the air gets colder and dryer. Up the moisture especially for your face and hands to keep skin from getting tight and uncomfortable. You can work out a monthly maintenance schedule for DIY spa nights and give yourself a mani, a pedi and a quick facial to stay refreshed. You’ll look your best every day, no matter how chilly it gets!

Beauty Solutions: The Dark Side

What you can do to send those dark circles packing

If you’ve got a problem, we’ve got your solution! Beauty Solutions tackles the most common beauty problems and makes your beauty routine a little easier with tips and tricks to fix them! This one is sure to make your day a little bit brighter (especially under your eyes).

Question: How do I get rid of bags/dark circles under my eyes?

All In The Family - Dark skin underneath the eyes can be a hereditary hurdle. If your parent or parents have hyperpigmentation in this area, you’re more likely to have it as well.

Zzz’s, H2O & SPF - Sleep can minimize discoloration around the eyes, as does staying hydrated. Avoid alcohol and salt, which can both dehydrate you and enhance any dark areas on your skin. Sunscreen is a must; it protects your skin and sunscreens that contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide help decrease skin pigmentation over time, which lightens skin overtime. 

Plump It Up - Daily moisturizers and eye creams with plumping ingredients can help if things look a little droopy, but be careful with certain ingredients when it comes to the sensitive skin around your eyes. Pink or peach toned cream correctors can keep you from looking fatigued during the day. Our CC Crème Concealer with SPF 20 is a great one; it’s the perfect pick-me-up for your lower lids. When they aren’t combined into one product, eye cream helps concealer go on smoother, so use both for the best results.

Mask It Out - A quick sheet mask specifically made for under-eye treatment is a great option for a more immediate lift. No one will ever know you’re running on 3 hours of sleep. ;)

Natural Light(ening) - Tomatoes and lemons both have lightening properties that can be harnessed for your dark circles. Just mix tomato juice and lemon juice in a 2:1 ratio and gently apply underneath your eyes for 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. Repeat this process morning and night for 2-3 weeks for best results. Kojic acid and licorice extract can also be used to brighten and even skin tone.
