Before you hit the store for all your fall beauty essentials, find out how some of your favourite summer looks can transition into the new season. With fresh takes on hair, makeup and nails, you are bound to find something that fits your style and incorporates the season’s biggest trends. Take our quiz to find out which trends to keep and which to leave behind until next summer.

Which beauty product can you simply not live without?

  1. Lip gloss
  2. Mascara
  3. Bold lipstick
  4. Blush

What is your ideal hairstyle?

  1. Something simple. A style that requires little effort and still leaves you looking put together.
  2. Down! You feel better letting your locks flow rather than putting them up.
  3. Sleek. You love a sleek style whether you’re wearing your hair up or down.
  4. Tousled. You like wearing your hair up, but you still want it to look loose and frame your face.

How do you like your nails to look?

  1. Natural. You like a pale colour or no polish at all.
  2. Painted but not on point. You paint them once every couple of weeks. As long as they aren’t too badly chipped, you’re okay with them.
  3. Perfectly manicured. Whether you go to a salon or do it yourself, you love trying new designs and bold colours.
  4. Monochromatic. You love a good metallic or matte concrete grey colour.

Which fall 2014 trend are you excited to try?

  1. A big, romantic-looking braid. You love the intentional messiness of it.
  2. Long, mermaid hair. You’ve been growing your hair out so you can get the waves you want.
  3. Bold, bright eye makeup. You can’t wait to get your hands on some cobalt-blue shadow and orchid liner.
  4. Glowing cheeks. You want to carry your summer glow into fall in a natural way.

If you chose:

Mostly As: Romantic and Natural
You love a natural yet polished look. Its easiness works for you and fits into your busy schedule. Here are the trends you should keep:

  • Hair: Let the summer trend of loose updos live on. Loose buns and braids make for great fall looks, whether you’re going out or heading into the office.
  • Makeup: The popular “almost naked” makeup look of summer 2014 transitions well into the new season. Try a dewy, pink lip gloss or tinted lip balm to give your lips a slight pop of color but keep the natural look you like.
  • Nails: Keep your pale pink polishes around. The minimalist look that was popular this summer will keep you looking chic in the fall. 

Mostly Bs: No Fuss
You enjoy feeling and looking your best but you don’t stress over it. You’re not the type to make sure every little flyaway is in place and each lip is perfectly lined. Here are the trends you should keep:

  • Hair: Bring your beach waves with you this fall. Letting your hair flow in long, textured locks is easy with a little sea salt spray. Combine your waves with a centre part and you’ll be right on trend for the fall season as well.
  • Makeup: Keep your cheeks looking warm with rosy blushes. Stick with a volumizing mascara for thick, doll-like lashes. 
  • Nails: Be sure to hang on to any of your summer metallics. Metallic polishes often don’t chip as easily, making them perfect for a low-maintenance mani. Try a gold or silver polish.

Mostly Cs: Bold and Bright
You’re a perfectionist when it comes to getting ready ­­– you love a sleek look with makeup that makes a statement. Here are the trends you should keep:

  • Hair: This summer was all about accenting hair with flowers, metallic hair ties and decorative headbands. Put the flowers away until next summer, but keep your hair sleek. Try a straight, low ponytail with a metal accent like gold pins or a silver hair band. Just be sure your hair is properly protected from any styling damage with Herbal Essences Honey, I’m Strong Strengthening Serum.
  • Makeup: The aquamarine and purple shadows of summer will give your face an intense look this fall. Try a thick, cobalt blue liner. Put your candy-coloured lipsticks away and opt for a deep red instead.
  • Nails: Geometric nail designs are great to keep through fall. Instead of using neon colours, try a black polish with a thin, bright blue line on each nail.

Mostly Ds: Glowing and Rosy
You give yourself ample time to get ready, but you’re not a fan of intense makeup and complicated hairstyles. You don’t like anything to get in the way of having a fresh, bright face. Here are the trends you should keep:

  • Hair: Your wispy hair of summer doesn’t have to disappear. Knotting your hair at the nape of your neck and allowing small, front pieces to frame your face works best with your style. To freshen up second-day hair, or for added texture and volume, apply Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo to your strands.
  • Makeup: You’re all about keeping your summer glow. Make it easy with a rosy or pearl highlighting powder brushed across your cheeks. Pack away that bronzer!
  • Nails: Pale grey polish transitions perfectly into autumn. When you’re in the mood for something darker, try a deep burgundy polish.
