Hands down, Fall is the season every fashionista and beauty product junkie longs for. The fashions we saw on the runway in February during Fashion Week, are now ready for real wear.
The haute beauty trends for Fall 2011 are exciting and a fresh diversion from the bare palettes of summer. Deeper hues, jewel tones, smoked out eyes, nouveau nude faces, low-slung ponytails, neon brights, multi-colored manicures, forever on-trend red lips and metallic lipsticks and metallic eyeshadows are the stuff about which we now obsess and write.
Check out our first round of Editor's Picks—Fall Beauty 2011 Trends
Editor-in-Chief Tracey's Fall 2011 Trend Pick: Deep Red Lips
"I'm all about understated fall hair trends that we saw on the runway last February. My fave so far is a sleek, low ponytail—easily achieved by every hair type with minimum effort. Simply use an oil-based serum to provide shine and tame flyaways for a nice smooth look, then secure at the nape with a Goody Ouchless ponytail holder. This quick, sleek, and easy protective style—a low ponytail— is the perfect answer for crazy weather this fall."
"Some shy away from nude lips in fall because of the fear of looking like Casper the Ghost—washed out. You don't have to give up in-the-buff puckers. M.A.C lipstick in Myth is the truth! It gives me the right color for my olive skin while making my lips stand out while nude. I'm happy that nude lips were on the runways as a trend for Fall 2011."
Prestige Pick: M.A.C Lipstick in Myth $14.50

LA Beauty Newbie's Fall 2011 Trend Pick: Gold Eyeliner
"I'm glad to see gold metallics as a beauty trend for fall. Usually, when I wear eyeshadow, I grab gold as I love the way the gilty hue glows on my brown skin. However, when I'm short on time, I use gold liner to add a touch of glitz. Additionally, a little bit of gold liner blended in the inner corners helps to open up the eyes."
Prestige Pick: Dolce and Gabbana Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Gold $29
Budget Buy: L'Oreal HIP Chrome Eyeliner in Gold Charge $10

Team 20/20 Writer Chelsea's Fall 2011 Trend: Bold Brow
"Eyebrows frame the face. They set the tone for your make up, so this season, go bold with brows! Bold brows are a great way to balance out a red lip, gilded lids or a smoky eye."
Prestige Pick: Smashbox Brow Tech to Go $26
Budget Buy: NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil $4.50
Next Age's nail trend pick…
Nail Files Writer Age's Fall 2011 Trend Pick: Metallic Nails
"I am loving metallic nail polish for fall. Bronze and gold are my favorites. Silver can definitely add some glamour. Metallic polish colors compliment most skin tones. So if you are looking for that shimmering solution this, try a metallic nail laquer."
Prestige Pick: Butter London—The Full Monty $14
Budget Buy: NYX Smooth Operator $4
