Full brows lock the look

The key to your look this fall is completing it. The one area that’s getting the most attention? The brows. Full, lush eyebrows are trending and for good reason—they help to unify the look of your overall appearance by framing your face. Basically, they’re a focal point. Are you on top of your game? Don’t worry if you need some guidance—we all do. Our aestheticians offer shaping services in addition to threading, a gentle and lasting technique that removes hair at the follicle level to help define your brows.

A Boeau Belle specialty, the service stems from India and is gentle, with results lasting several weeks. Our favorite part? It’s less painful than waxing and tweezing. When your brows are perfected, consider your lashes. Our aestheticians can tint your eyelashes for a thick, full look with dramatic results. Or, schedule a lash extension service. Combine our brow and lash services together, and you’ll shave minutes off your morning routine and, well, we’re all for anything that allows us to press snooze one more time.

With your brows and eyelashes in check, consider your makeup. The fall 2016 runways were hot with dark hues. The looks? A little edgy and a little sensational. To play the trending colors into your makeup routine, try Aveda’s new Autumn/Winter collection, Foklor, with shades ranging from Chia (a dark greyish purple) to Balsam (a cool, deep evergreen). While the trends are leaning toward the darker end of the spectrum, consider your features before you make any purchases. Have you been been blessed with green or hazel eyes? Then you probably know the green eye shadow just isn’t for you. Instead, focus on colors that will complement, such as purple.

Another tip? If you’ve got smaller eyes, lining both the top and bottom can make them appear even smaller. The answer to this problem is to apply liner on the upper lid only and use lighter shadows, instead of dark. And if you want your shadow color to stay all day don’t forget to use primer—yes, on your eyelids.

Switching gears, here. Our specialty is hair and balayage is all the buzz. For the luxurious low maintenance technique, you can thank the French. The natural looking highlights are hand painted by way of soft dimensions, leaving zero harsh foil lines. Another trending technique? Ian Michael Black’s eclipting color which uses lighting techniques to shape the face and bring out and illuminate natural features.

Styles aside, we’re seeing bold colors make striking effects in the salon. Pops of red and purple—and yes, we’ve even seen some greys—are making waves, taking their cues from the runway. If you’re more of a traditional gal, save the bold hues for your makeup and consider classic colors for your seasonal look. Colors we’re seeing trending contain shades of caramel, auburn, chestnut, brown and cinnamon. All the aforementioned help soften natural facial features, especially ahead of the coming colder months.

For fashion, casual carries into fall

We’re thankful our summer wardrobe can stay a little longer. Celebs everywhere are being spotted wearing causal, comfortable and chic outfits stemming from our beloved warmer months. And we’re not sad about it. Keep the crop tops handy and add a jacket (our favorites are still bombers) for a chic (and quick) seasonal transition.

Also carrying into fall? White. Whether you’re a proponent or not, experts are now saying it’s A-okay to continue wearing after Labor Day. The trick is to do it subtly and pair with dark colors that accentuate your overall look. Just another reason to keep your closet as-is, for now.

We’re the experts—let us help

To wrap it up, bold is trending for the fall. Whether you try it with your makeup, hair or your wardrobe, pick at least one of the three and you’ll be good to go. If you need our help getting there, whether you need new color, new products, or to schedule a service with an aesthetician, we’re always only a phone call away. We’re happy to discuss both makeup and hair colors unique to you and perfect for fall—it’s what we do!
