Time for bright lipsticks, loud pigments, and flushed cheeks is sprinting away asfall approaches, and boy, aren’t we ready to let go of these ultimate summer essentials after this long heat wave? In favor of some uber cool Vamp lips, graphic liners and easy smoky eyes, we bring to you the most talked about make uptrends as seen on international runways and in several chic street styles.
Black liner really shows its versatility in the season of the chills! Some great products to experiment this winter with would be:
Laura Mercier’s Crème Eye Liner in Noir, Indigo and Espresso to be applied with the perfect angled brush also available at Laura Mercier. However, this would involve practice and skill compared to the They’re Real Push Up Liner by Benefit that is highly user friendly for amateurs and earlyMakeup enthusiasts.
EASY SMOKY EYES
A trend that never fails to impress in winters is the smoky eye with a smudgy look. Thefall runways this season were filled with these looks prominently seen on the Chanel and Diane Von Furstenberg runways.
This look is easily achievable for girls at home especially if they invest in the Urban Decay Naked Smoky pallet. It has 12 perfect hues for a wide range of looks just like the other pallets by this cosmetic powerhouse. However our latest favorite of the season has to be collaboration amongst Ciate x Olivia Palermo where we saw the most undeniably savvy stash of suede-finish shadows with perfect Autumn shades.
Since the past season we all cant run away from the vamp within us! Be it spring, summer, or autumn we have seen these vamp shades gain popularity like Kylie Jenner on instagram! With stunning shades like Rebel and Diva by Mac seen on the Emanuel Ungaro runway we move on to some shades by Dolce and Gabbana’s Winter Rose, another hit of the season. Another must have item this season is the Ecstacy Lacquer by Giorgio Armani this season in Berry Glaze.
Lips are your statement pieces this winter, you can experiment and experience a change in your mood and personality drastically!
Gone are the days of heavy Kim Kardashian contouring and the extravagant skills of strobing. Now we are seeing a change and balance in the looks all over the world. Bare minimalist contour with a hint of highlight is what will get you through this winter looking flawless and edgy. Smashbox set of the contour, bronze and highlight will get you through a rough day taking less than 5 minutes to apply and blend. With more time on your hands you can invest in the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer and mix it up with the Luminious Silk Foundation and you will have flawless looking dewy skin as an end result. Keep it low on the blush, and go for a sheer highlight with the Sheer, or the Laura Mercier Candleglow Luminizing Palette.
That’s all for the fall trends, keep it simple, minimalistic and classy with jaw dropping statement lips and you will own this winter like no other!
