Autumn Winter Make-up trends 2016

By 21 October, 2016Bridal

Get inspiration for this years autumn and winter’s make up trends with a rundown of our 5 strongest, most wearable looks.

LIPS

This season lips are vampy, dramatic and fierce think black cherry, blackcurrant and dark toned reds. The finishes vary from high shine, stained to super matte. If this seems a little scary opt for an ombre lip using a dark lip liner blended into a lipstick roughly 4 shades lighter.  We love Glastonbury by Charlotte Tilbury and Black Widow by TOPSHOP.

We loved the lips off the Louis Vuitton and Dior catwalks!

SKIN

Shine and glow is nothing to be afraid of this winter, less powder and more creamy easy to use foundations and highlighters. Think healthy fresh clear skin with perfectly placed highlighter on eyelids, cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow. There are so many fabulous products to help even the dullest of winter skins, one of our kit hero products is BECCA Cosmetics Shimmering skin perfecter and we think it’s a must have for every women make up bag.

We loved the skin Valentino and Gucci glowing skins on this years catwalk.

FLUSHED CHEEKS

Girly and romantic colours are trending for this seasons cheeks. Think flawless complexions and a pop of bright colour that gives a rosy pinched cheek effect.  It’s time to put down your bronzer girls and stop with the contouring.  A couple of great products to try are Benetint by Benefit and Rosey Glow blusher by DIOR.

THE EYELINER

Exaggerated graphic and experimental is key for this updated take on A/W 2016 eyeliners.  We saw everything from clean, angled shapes to lived-in smudged rock star looks.  We also saw fun, youthful takes on the trend with brightly coloured precisely placed lines above the natural contour line of the eyelids.  Whether you opt for the chic dark and sultry or a splash of fancy colour your eyes should be lined this season! In our kit we use Black track by MAC.

We loved the use of eyeliner on the Fendi and Kenzo shows.

GROWN UP GLITTER

Disco brows, glitter tears, sequins and gold leaf are no longer just for kids they have become the ultimate accessory for any cool partying going hipster.  Sparkle away with glitter on the outer corners of the eyes and across the cheek bones for a daring look or make it ultra – feminine with a touch of gold glitter in the inner corners of the eyes. We can’t get enough of  It’s in your dreams brand who sell a whole load of very pretty glitter and fancy facial adornments.

We loved Burberry and Jenny Packham sparkling runaway
