So I've been reading up on magazines, seeing popular looks in store catalogues and looking through fall fashion week in different countries. I noticed some reoccuring trends within their makeup choices so I decided to write a lil' guide on autumn makeup trends!Dark Lips- Berry lipsticks are always popular around autumn and winter but this season there is a twist on it. Black lips are making a comeback, other popular colours are a dark purple and other berry colours! With this season's lips it's either all in or nothing at all! Bare lips with nothing but a chapstick or light gloss is also popular! This trend helps when focusing on the two eye trends that I'm writing about next....
Lip products that are part of this trend: MAC lipstick, Urban Decay lipstick, NARS lipstick, Urban Decay lip pencilGlittery Eyes- This makeup look has been seen on the catwalk over the years but now it's coming back! There are many different ways to complete this look: a subtle sparkly eyeliner, a dust of glitter on the lids, or thicker sparkle pieces to cover undereye circles!
These are some shadows that will help you achieve this glamour: Makeup Forever eyeshadow, Make up Store glitter, NYX loose shadow, Make up Store shimmerBlack Shadow- Replace the thin winged liner with thick lines and dark shadows. Although lips are a feature in autumn, eye makeup is the star of the season! I personally I would keep it simple with a thick line of eyeliner that also covers the lid (like the look on the far left). Another trend that has come back is kajal; black eyeliner on the waterline to darken up your eyes!
Different ways to accomplish a black eye (hehehe...): MAC shadow, L'Oreal eyeliner, Maybelline kajal, L'Oreal smoky eyelinerGlowy Skin- During summer the ”no makeup” look was very popular among fashion shows but now in fall it's more dramatic. In previous years, glowy skin has been reserved for the summer and a matte face for the autumn and winter; but no more! This autumn bronzed cheeks and high points are the new craze; I love that! This trend accompanies/ can work with the others as well.
For a dewy look: NARS the multiple, Makeup Forever foundation, NYX setting spray, Burberry liquid highlighterOn fleek cheekbones- This makeup look is under the glowy skin umbrella trend but slightly different, it can be done with matte skin and a highlighter for those of us who aren't such big fans of a shiny face. There are several ways to do this: liquid highlighter (to look natural, instead of a powder), a light blush, or/and a glowy bronzer!
So those are the biggest autumn/ early winter makeup trends, they are all so gorgeous and I cannot wait to experiment with highlighters and lip colours!
