The temperatures outside may not indicate that a seasonal change is upon us, but let’s face it: Summer is coming to a close, and quickly. And while we’ve had a blast experimenting these past few months with dewy glass skin, extra glossy lips, and colorful lashes, it’s time to move on.
How will we shake up our beauty for fall? What trends will reign supreme as temperatures begin to drop? We rounded up the five biggest runway and celebrity looks that are bound to be a hit. Oh, and don’t worry—we’ve set you up with a list of products to help you achieve each of them, too.

On the Fall 2018 runways, things were out of this world with alien-inspired sparkle showing up everywhere, from lids at Lanyu and sculptural gelled hair at Sophia Webster to covering the entire face at Giambattista Valli. Now, we might not want to rock glitter of that intensity in our every day, but a bit of sparkle around the eyes or lightly dusted onto our locks? That’s something we can get behind.

Yes, the glass skin craze of this past spring has officially moved on to hair for fall, as seen on stars like Dua Lipa, Jenna Dewan, and Jourdan Dunn. What is glass hair, exactly? It's a sleek, shiny, and, well, basically a perfect lob. Prepare to bust out your flat iron and smoothing sprays!

The neon bright eye is here to stay, as seen on the runways of Adam Selman, Chromat, Sies Marjan, and many more. This fall, don’t be afraid to paint your lids with pigment that really packs a punch. Why opt for gloomy, dark shades when you can be a virtual ray of sunshine year-round?

The Graphic Crease
The graphic eye gets a clean, modern upgrade this fall. Whether it’s bold, graphic black lines or pops of neon (or a mix of both), tracing your crease is a new subtle, yet statement-making, way to wear your eyeliner. While we saw inner corner swipes at Lanyu and Jason Wu, Anna Sui’s girls had a full-on ‘60s mod traced crease.
