Hi all! I’m Ashley, blogger behind Mommy’s Vanity. I’m thrilled to be guest posting today on Pearls and Polkadots and bring you some Fall makeup and nail colour trends!

Before becoming a stay-at-home Mom, I worked as an Esthetician, so I have a strong passion for all things beauty. I’ve been doing some research to see what kinds of colours are going to be trending this Fall and I’m so ready to dig into those rich, darker colours! Although I love the warm Summer weather, there is just something refreshing about the crisp Fall air, changing leaves and of course switching up my beauty routine to reflect the season.

Here are some of the top colour trends you will see coming up for Fall:

unnamed (1)


Wine: This is undeniably one of the most popular colours coming up for Fall and rightfully so!  I particularly love this lip colour paired with a simple eye look so the daring lip is the focal point. (Shown:  MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Labradorable & Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Sparkling Blackberry)

Flushed Cheeks: Add a pop of pink on the cheeks to make it look as if you just spent the afternoon on the ski hill! A natural flush is easy to achieve with a powder blush or cheek tint. (Shown: Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Justify my Love & Sephora Colourful Cheek Ink Gel in Peony)

Bronze Glow: A shimmering bronze shadow is proving to be a huge trend this Fall. It can be a fun way to add a little sparkle to your Fall makeup routine! (Shown: Colourpop Cosmetics Eyeshadow in On the Rocks & NARS Velvet Shadow Stick in Oaxaca)

Soft Smoky Eye: This Fall, the traditional smoky eye is a little less dramatic. Using softer browns and grey’s instead of a harsher black can take the smoky eye to a wearable everyday look! (Shown: Urban Decay Smoky Palette & elf Everyday Smoky Palette).

Woodsy: One of my personal favourite nail colour trends for this Fall is Earth Tones. Rich chocolate browns and mossy greens will be my go-to polishes this season! (Shown: Zoya Cinnamon & China Glaze Take a Hike).

Metallic Jewels: This trend has been making an appearance for the past few years, and I’m glad it’s back again! Gorgeous jewel tones like vibrant purple and aquamarine, and metallic shades in bronze and silver are showing to be popular. (Shown: Zoya Giada & OPI Venice the Party?)

Sheer: Something a little different this year is a pretty, simple and sheer manicure. These nail strengtheners help protect and strengthen nails while adding just a hint of colour. Available in shades of taupe, nude and porcelain pink. (Shown: Formula X Sheer Strength in Mighty and Powerful)

Blues: Blue is back this Fall in an array of shades! I’ve never been a huge lover of blue, but it’s starting to grow on me! Pale blue, cobalt, indigo and navy are all front runners this year. (Shown: OPI Gelato on my Mind & Essie Bell Bottom Blues).

Wine and Berry: Again, deep reds are showing up in almost every Fall nail polish collection and I love it! Purple-toned and brown-toned reds are seemingly most popular. (Shown: Marc Jacobs Rita & Deborah Lippman Miss Independent).

Which Fall colours do you most look forward to sporting this Fall? Let us know in the comments!

    I absolutely love the fall dark lips. Wine is such a pretty shade to wear! As far as ColourPop is concerned…I am obsessed with them. I just purchased their new fall collection. I purchased the Naked Smoky Eye from Urban Decay and absolutely love it! I really love cobalt blue nails. Great picks!

      I’ve actually never tried ColourPop before, but I’ve heard nothing but great things! I need to get my hands on the UD Smoky to complete my collection! Thanks for the comment 🙂

      Thank you! I love dark nails for Fall. I just need to gather the courage to wear dark lips. I find it kind of intimidating!

    I’m all about the wine/berry colored lip that’s coming! Also, I NEED that palette in my life. Is it silly to own ALL of the UD Naked palettes?? hahaha

      I also need that palette to complete my collection! Not silly at all 😉
