The best color trends in beauty this fall are bright, bold and daring. With the popularity of vibrant, jewel-tone colors such as deep, rich greens and teals, burgundies and gold, fall attire should be anything but dull. Multi-dimensional shades and highlights are on trend for hair color in the fall, while red reigns as a lip color.
You don't need to look far this fall to find bright, fruit-inspired berry colors. Hot pink lips appeared on runways, while designers such as Lanvin and Badgley Mischka have made dresses in the vibrant hue. The color ranges from bright pink to a more deep raspberry shade. For a more eye popping outfit, go for a brighter berry shade. Save the deeper shade for more formal nights out.
Blue is the preferred color of many people and the fall 2011 made good use of it. This season, blue is back in a saturated, rich hue. Don't settle for dull navy or pale baby blue, go for a shade that's bright and demands attention. Look for evening wear in a vibrant, sequined blue from designers such as L'Wren Scott. Tone the color down to wear to work by choosing a bright blue scarf or blouse.
From deep colors such as orange-yellow marigold to more delicate golden champagne shades, gold is big this fall. It's risky to wear, since many women look washed out in yellow colors, but if you can pull it off, you'll really make a statement in an all over golden dress or pant suit.
If you love lipstick and red, this fall you are in luck. On-trend lipstick shades for fall include a flaming, fire engine red, which is also making an appearance in several designer gowns and outfits. Other red colors to choose from this fall include poppy, which is a vibrant orange red and black cherry, a deep, almost burgundy color perfect for those nights when you want to make a statement. If you prefer a more neutral lip color, look for more washed shades such as brick red, which looks almost brown.
This fall is the season of highlights for hair color. If you are a brunette or want to be, and have olive skin, try highlighting your dark hair with a color that's two shades lighter. Keep the dark shade on top and put the lighter colors beneath. Another option is to tuck a few streaks of copper or blonde beneath your brown hair for a subtle, but eye-catching highlight.
If you're a blond, try getting highlights that look like ribbons flowing through your hair. Another option is to get a look that is as if you're trying to grow out your blonde color but are in fact doing it on purpose. Along with highlights, umber dyed hair is in for fall. If you go for an umber coloring, keep it subtle. The color should lighten just ever-so-slightly as it reaches the tips. You don't want a shock of dark, brown hair at your roots and platinum blonde on the tips.
