For us beauty aficionados, it is the season of changing up our tried-and-true looks for something striking, smuldering and moody. Resolving to try a new beauty look is not unlike hitting an exercise class — getting up and going is the hardest part. Luckily, we’re making it easier!
Perfectly Imperfect Lips
Tired of smudging your lipstick and having to constantly reapply it? Not a problem – several of the autumn/winter 2017 shows saw imperfect-looking lips being painstakingly created backstage for just that effect. So the good news is, “just-kissed” lips are in!
Apply a wine or berry toned lip liner and colour and smudge away! Don’t forget, for extra impact, add a clear gloss over the top.
There’s more than one way to shine, and it doesn’t involve highlighter or glitter this autumn/winter season. Glossy eyelids, long a staple of editorial shoots, is now wearable, and we love it. You can buy dedicated eye glosses, and a standout product is Kevyn Auction’s The Exotique Diamond Eye Gloss. Just it over your favourite shadow, a plum shade is perfect!
The glitter trend is still going strong (blame Instagram). This year, try to wear it in a less precise manner than you’ve tried before. Scatter it across your bottom lashline, allowing flecks to fall where they might. The less perfect it looks, the more perfect it is.
Finish With A Strong Brow Game and Luscious Lashes
Tame, tint and lift the brows, because fluffy brows and gorgeous lashes are a no fail combination.
Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel is a fiber gel that mimics the look of real hair for fuller-looking brows.
Yves Saint Laurent’s the Shock Mascara’s hourglass-shaped brush allows for more of the exclusive shock formula to grab hold of lashes. With brilliant, high intensity color, this long-wearing mascara will give you dramatic lashes that will not smudge.
