Changes in seasonality mean one thing; new beauty trends. It's always exciting to see what new products, techniques and ideas are coming to market, so we have rounded up our favourite 5 to help inspire your next beauty buy and try.

Top 5 Exciting Beauty Trends

We have rounded up the most exciting beauty trends on our radar, to help you prep your skincare, haircare and makeup routine for autumnal changes.

Clay Masks

Clay has always been a bit of a star ingredient, but more recently it's getting some time in the spotlight as summer moves into autumn. This is because a change in season is the perfect time to detox your skin, and clay is an ingredient match made in heaven.

STARSKIN'S SILKMUD Mask is made with a mixture of clay's, including Pink French, Kaolin and Bentonite, which helps to combat blemish-causing impurities and leave the skin clear and healthy. The addition of Natural Silk Cocoon and Niacinamide help brighten and soothe, keeping the soft soft and nourished.

Minimal Ingredients

Beauty products made with few ingredients are really heating up this month. As the weather changes, so does our skin's needs, and we need to adapt accordingly. Choosing skincare products with a minimal yet effective ingredient list is the easiest way to keep it healthy and glowing. It will get all the nutrients it needs without any of the nasties, which when skin has seasonal sensitivity, is perfect.

We love Vichy's Mineral 89 Serum, which has just 11 ingredients, including Hyaluronic Acid, and is a serious skin quencher when temperatures begin to drop. Simply pop onto to dehydrated skin, and come morning, it will be glowing and smooth.

Highlighter for your Lips

Glimmering lips are about to become a big trend (think super-glowy without looking like the Ice Queen). Highlighted and radiant skin has always been fashionable, so it really was only a matter of time before it made it to other parts of the face.

In order to do a glimmer lip without the full-on glitter, look for a shimmering lip gloss, which looks quite sheer with a hint of shine to it. We love Bobbi Brown's High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Bare Sparkle, which gives a gorgeous natural and gentle glow to the lips.

Detoxing Shampoo

Gorgeous hair is a year-round essential, but this month, it's all about the "hairtox" to realign your hair health.

Adding in a clarifying shampoo into your routine once a week will help to rid your hair of product and impurity build-up and get it back to looking voluminous, shiny and beautiful. We love Bumble and Bumble's Sunday Shampoo, which contains Ginseng, Rosemary and Sage to stimulate the scalp and remove excess oil and sebum.

Bright Coloured Makeup

Heading into autumn, brightening skincare is an absolute essential, so why would it be any different for your makeup?

A bright pop of colour in either your blush, eye makeup or lipstick can make a big difference to your complexion and really help to add energy and light.

Try MAC's Powder Blush in either Never say Never or Full Fuchsia, which are gorgeous bright shades to perk up your autumnal complexion and get you glowing again.
