Au­tumn trends

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - BEAUTY & FITNESS -

This week we are go­ing to fo­cus on au­tumn/win­ter trends from the cat­walk and how this will in­flu­ence you and your own make-up rou­tine this au­tumn.

Graphic liner

From each of the ma­jor fash­ion week cap­i­tals, we saw sev­eral make-up artists cre­at­ing graphic and float­ing liner looks on the eyes. Now by no means do I ex­pect you to come away wear­ing a tribal ar­row shaped liner across the eye, but I do an­tic­i­pate that black winged liner will be­come a more im­por­tant el­e­ment within au­tumn/win­ter make-up. Cre­ate a state­ment liner us­ing Kat Von D Tat­too Liner (£16). This liner is su­per pig­mented and cre­ates the most black solid liner for your eye make-up.

Blush­ing it

Blusher made a re­turn this au­tumn, with a flush of bright pink hue brought into the com­plex­ion to add a hint of colour onto the cheeks. Sheer cov­er­age, soft shades and del­i­cate ap­pli­ca­tion made for an ethe­real beauty which felt ut­terly modern, yet com­pletely wear­able. Bour­jois Lit­tle Round Pot Blusher Rose Coup De Foudre #16 (£6.49) is a beau­ti­ful af­ford­able blusher for any com­plex­ion, but with blusher al­ways ap­ply softly — less is more — and build up your prod­uct to achieve the per­fect look.

Kohl pen­cil

Au­tumn ‘17 make-up trends were mas­sively in­flu­enced by the 60s and we saw black cream pen­cil had been smudged through the top and bot­tom lash line to add drama and depth of colour to the eyes. This cre­ated a bold eye make-up and is a huge trend this win­ter — try OCC Tarred Pen­cil (£12).

Colour

The au­tumn shows might tra­di­tion­ally be brim­ming with dark, berry lips and win­try hues, but this year de­sign­ers added splashes of vivid colour to brighten the mood. Var­i­ous artists and de­sign­ers coated lashes with yel­low, blue and even green to add vi­brancy to their looks — if you are feel­ing more ex­per­i­men­tal, add blue to the tips of your eye­lashes.

For an ex­tra dash of colour to your look, use MAC Blue Mas­cara (£19.50).

Lash­ing out

This sea­son saw over-em­pha­sised lashes, both on the top and bot­tom lash lines. There is no doubt that lashes make a mas­sive dif­fer­ence to the over­all look, so try lashes a lit­tle big­ger than you would nor­mally, to be on trend this au­tumn.

I adore us­ing LeiLash Mink Lashes (£25). Th­ese are so wear­able and dra­matic, but I love the fact they are also re-us­able.

In­ner bright­ness

At Stella McCart­ney, make-up artist Pat McGrath pared ev­ery­thing back, but one thing that I found beau­ti­ful with this col­lec­tion was how bright and clean she kept the in­ner eye.

She light­ened and bright­ened with­out draw­ing un­nec­es­sary at­ten­tion to it.

For this look, I love us­ing Make-up Stu­dio Pre­cious Pearl Eye­shadow in re­fill (£8.50) , which is a su­per pig­mented shim­mer eye­shadow that bright­ens the in­side of the eye.
