Perfect Your Autumn Lewk With These Gorgeous 2018 Fall Beauty Trends à la Vegan


The heat of summer is still on in most parts of the country, but we at Peaceful Dumpling feel it’s never to early to get excited about the coming fall and the beauty trends it brings along. The must-try autumn beauty looks are especially divine for 2018. We can look forward to (or already start indulging in) a bit of ethereal glow, retro hair accessories, and maximalist nails–yes! Because we want our looks to be cute *and* cruelty-free, we’ve paired some of the most exciting fall beauty trends with vegan and cruelty-free product recommendations. Keep scrolling to see what’s hot this season!

Best 2018 Fall Beauty Trends

Rose Gold Glow

One of the most beloved trends from the past five years has been highlighter. This nearly universally flattering trend is still huge–just with a slight variation. In place of yellow-toned shimmer, rose gold or peachy shimmer is taking center stage. For a more natural finish, look for a finely milled powder (or cream with fine shimmer particles) rather than chunks of glitter.

Gingham Bow Ponytail Holder

Scrunchies. Claw clips. Zigzag headband thingies. Where do I even begin? Claire’s may be out of business, but playful hair accessories are enjoying a renaissance. Raid your old Caboddle or treat yourself to an updated version of one of these accessories (try to pick one that will last you multiple seasons and go with several outfits!).

Longer Lengths

Looking to do something a little different with your hair? Consider growing out your lob and trying a single braid down your back or relaxed waves. Keep your locks nourished with a hair oil while you grow them out.

Black Eyeliner

While no-makeup makeup is still very popular (and probably the most practical beauty trend ever), don’t be afraid to go dark this fall and embrace black eyeliner. Try it in a classic smoky eye, a fierce cat eye, or, if you want to be really on-trend, line your waterline–just note that this may make your eyes look smaller, so leave the inner corners of your eyes unlined for a more “open” look.

Red Lips

Shades ranging from cherry to wine made appearances on the runways, so this classic look is clearly still a staple. Give your red lip a contemporary feel by selecting a lipstick formula with moisturizing ingredients.

Textured Brows

Allow your brows to show a bit of their natural texture rather than forcing each hair into stencilesque perfection. Simply fill them in as necessary and lightly shape them with a natural brow pomade.

Glam Nails

Who is ready for maximalist nails? I certainly am! The sky is the limit here. Go metallic, go bold and bright, go multi-color, go fiery red, go long, go coffin-shaped–have fun!
