Autumn is fast upon us, and what better way (and purse-friendly) to update your look with the latest autumn make-up trends. This year it’s all about statement! Gone are the nude, barely-there styles, replaced with red lips and big, bold eyes. We’ve put together all you need to know about these latest trends – brought to us by models showing us how to wear it best this autumn.
From ripe berry to dark plum lipstick, 90s lips are making there come back. Natural nudes and clear balms are being replaced with shades of red, ready for the winter. This season we saw a sea of lip colour on the runway that would definitely get Angela Chase’s stamp of approval.
Black eyeliner is back in to emphasise the eye this season. The catwalk have given us 99 new ways to use black eyeliner – and so easy to do at home. Try winged or a simple, smudgy kohl pencil around the eye.
Let the blush rush begin! Put your contouring palettes aside and stock up on warm peach and rose blushes, making the cheeks look flushed. Make-up artist Lynn Desnoyers used the effect of having a ‘brisk wintry walk’.
Dark eye shadow is also making a return. Still influenced by the classic smokey eye, the best tip we have is to blend until you think you can’t blend anymore and then keep going! While the dark, ultra-diffused eye shadow look is intense, it’s still soft. But if black and grey seems too harsh, try brown palettes –they were loved by Tom Ford and Burberry on the runway.
Natural eyebrows are also looking to be more popular, influenced by Cara Delevingne’s dark thick eyebrows. Models on the runway are showing off their natural, beautiful brows rather than plucking them away. Ladies, it’s time to drop the tweezers!
