Key Beauty Trends For Autumn/Winter 2018
The Autumn/Winter season calls for shaking things up and adding new beauty items to our make-up kit. With lots of daring and unique trends coming off the runway, it can be quite intimidating to re-create these looks – especially ones with graphic liners, tons of glitter or vivid colours. With that in mind, we have filtered through our top 5 easy beauty trends - which you can easily re-create at home without feeling like you’re going through identity crisis!
radiant and healthy looking skin was dominant on the catwalk this year. Models complexions looked smooth and freckles were peaking through, almost like they didn’t have any base products on. The ideal products to re-create the glowing skin trend are BB, CC creams and tinted moisturizers. We recommend trying out the Filorga BB Perfect, as it intensely hydrates the skin, blurs out lines and imperfections and covers blemishes in the most natural way.
Pink is a dynamic colour that doesn’t get enough credit and many individuals refrain from applying it on their eyes, fearing that it will make them look tired or unwell. It is recommended to stay away from bright pink eye shadows or ones with purple undertones if you’re still not used to playing with pinks. On the other hand, baby pinks are the best option for dreamy looking eyes and these will also help compliment your natural undertones. Our favourite baby pink product that could also be used on the eyes is the Glam’s Blush in Pink Bloss 327 – as it’s highly pigmented and easy to blend on both the eyes and cheeks
Even though our theme is all about natural and easy looks; we still wanted to add an element of glamour to your Autumn/Winter make-up looks, so we have included long and spidery lashes as one of our favourite trends for the new season. To achieve the look we recommend applying a few layers of the Mavala Creamy Mascara (Black), as it contains silk proteins that protects and helps your lashes look longer. If you want even more length, you can try applying a pair of falsies from Pinky Goat Lashes in the style Kenza.
This season, pencil defined arches and heavily painted brows are out, as textured, messy and almost undone brows are taking over. Also, we have spotted natural shades of tan and brown on the runway, giving the brows natural dimension and movement. Textured brows can be achieved with the help of brow gels and combs. We have been obsessing over the BrowFood Tinted Brow GelFix as it’s a multitasking brush-on gel that instantly gives your brows texture, colour and holds them in place.
Powerful lip colours are back in the game and nothing screams Autumn/Winter more than deep red and berry lip shades. Not only do these lip colours look elegant, these will also empower and add drama to any makeup look. We love the Glam’s Makeup Perfect Line in the shades 771 and 772. These easy to wear pencil lipsticks are the perfect products for a bold lip - as these will provide a creamy, long-lasting and matte finish.
