Whether we like it or not, autumn is upon us and the evenings are drawing in. Begrudgingly for some of us, we are gradually bringing our winter clothes out of hibernation, and the shops are filling their stores with new darker colours of autumn/winter trends for this season. I for one actually love this time of year, it’s a feeling for change and a new opportunity to re-invent you for the new season ahead with the latest fashion and beauty trends. I love experimenting with the latest beauty trends and this autumn will be no different!
If you fancy a change and would like to be on top of the up and coming beauty trends for this season then these top beauty trends are a must for autumn 2014!
Go metallic – Metallics are back, but that doesn’t mean piling on the silver lipsticks and glitter spray in your hair! Silver shadows or bronzes around the eyes are becoming the next alternative to the smoky eyed look. Give it a go and be subtle with the metallics during the daytime, adding the intensity for the evenings. Top tip! – Bronze and golds look better on darker complexions and silver hues on lighter tones.
Eyeliner is getting bigger – Eyeliners are becoming more of a statement this season so get practising with your eyeliner flicks. Blue eyeliners are still a big beauty trend this season. Try it blended under the eye or experiment with bold liquid eyeliners above the eye to give them the wow factor!
Berry lips – Blood red and berry coloured lips are back this season. There is a shade out there for everyone so give it a go and pucker up those lips! Top tip! – If you are going for bold lip colours, keep your eyes more neutral or vice versa. Focus on accentuating one main facial feature to avoid looking over made-up!
Dark nails – We do tend to go for darker nail colours during the winter months, but this seasons nails are all about the dark moody colours such as black, navy and deep berry colours. You only need to look in the high street shops to see lots of dark colours and in particular the black and navy combinations are a hit this season. Navy nails will be a big trend this autumn and winter.
Sleek ponytails – I was at the London Fashion Week last week at Somerset House and the catwalk was buzzing with models wearing slicked back ponytails inspired and created by Toni and Guy. The simple ponytail is making a big statement this season. Top tip! – Finish the style by wrapping a lock of hair around the hair band.
I can’t wait to try this seasons new beauty trends. I would love to hear your thoughts and see any photos of you rocking this seasons looks!
