Do you dare to be a romantic or a daredevil with this season’s make-up trends?
A new season offers the perfect opportunity to change your colour palette, take stock of the new trends and dare to be brave with your make-up choices. This time of year heralds the arrivals of darker lips, smokier eyes and luxurious looking skin.
Statement Lips – Colour. Colour. Colour. Autumn is the perfect time to experiment with bright lips, whether they are glossy or matte. Play safe with the traditional Fall/Winter colours like berry, scarlet and cherry, or dare to be different with aubergine, off-red, chocolate brown and bright purple. Whatever colour you choose, keep the rest of your make-up neutral and let your lips do the talking.
Metallic Eyes – Smokey eyes are an Autumn/Winter staple, but try to mix it up by making them metallic. Transitioning from light to dark metallics will take you from day to night all season. Try using golds in the day to make your eyes shimmer before mixing in coppers, blacks and silvers at night to create a deep and dazzling smokey eye.
Back to Romantic – For those of you who want a charming look this season a sense of the romantic is for you. The key to this look is to make sure your skin is perfect: use a primer to prep your skin, followed by a light reflecting foundation and a dusting of translucent powder. Add a hint of pink or peach blush and a slick of gloss and you are done. Remember, you want to keep it fresh and glowing, so do not cake anything on and stick to neutral tones.
Graphic Eyeliner – This is the season to be adventurous with your wings and flicks. Over-exaggerate your lines and make them thicker and bolder. Instead of one thick line, try an alternative winged flick with two thin lines following the shape of your eyelashes. For the daring among you, try this trend straight off the catwalk; trace the shape of your eyelid crease with a thin slick of liner before flicking it out parallel to your normal eyeliner wing.
