Makeup bags at the ready, these trends will make you want to amp up your beauty game.
Think deep reds, plums and blueberry, this season it's all about dark berry lips. We know the thought of wearing dark lipstick is scary but trust us, it's worth embracing the fear because it's such a good look. What's great about this trend is that it's extremely wearable and pretty much suits everyone. Yep, everyone. And, it makes your teeth look sparkly white. Always a priority in life!
Go on, throwback to your 15 year old grunge self. If you're not convinced have a look at these ladies who have perfected the dark berry lips.
For those brave enough to take the plunge, bleaching your eyebrows is the ultimate is ice-cool grunginess. And surely that's what moody grey weather calls for, right? - an even surlier makeup look. Plus, you don't just have to have ice-white hair to rock a bleached brow, try it with dark hair for a really dramatic look.
This might seem more like a spring trend than a winter trend, but trust us - rosy cheeks and even rosier lips is gonna look super cute when it's snowing and you're all wrapped up in your scarf and hat.
We can't quite put our finger on what is it but when we look at 90s pics of Drew Barrymore, Sarak Michelle Gellar and Winona Ryder we become instantly jealous of their makeup. Is it the nude lips, the thick eyebrows or the brooding look on their faces? Probably all three.
We know - retro af. But blue mascara is back in a big way. Whether it's to add a pop of colour to your party outfit or just to brighten up a dull autumn day, blue mascara can cure all your winter woes.
This is definitely a handle with care trend. One wrong move and you'll look like you've slept in last night's eye makeup. But get it right and you'll be looking like a smokey-eyed goddess. At last we can say goodbye for now to winged eye liner (took a while to overthrow that bad boy) and be a little more creative with your eyeliner look. Say hello to the ultimate party eyewear.
Lashes And Lips
You know that makeup rule that says eyes or lips, well it's BS. This season says you can and you should go all out with your eyes and your pout. And when we say all out, we mean bold lips and lashings of mascara. A/W calls for high drama and we can't wait to give it a go. Breaking the rules has never looked this good.
Add a luxe feel to your makeup look this season...because you are worth it, damn it. Gold eyeshadow makes sense for this time of year, it goes hand in hand with Christmas and the glitz that is party season. The metallic hue works great on all skin tones, and goes perfectly with any lip colour. We're sold!
