Autumn 2015 Make-up Tips
Autumn is around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about switching up your make-up bag. Swap the bronzed glow and embrace the pink flush (perfect for an English rose look). If you struggle to change your make-up routine and would like to introduce different products and looks, we’ll be sharing some of the latest beauty trends with you, but firstly I’d like to share the most important tip which is to always apply an SPF sunscreen before anything else! It’s vital to protect your skin in every season (even winter!)
Minimal makeup is very practical for when you don’t have a lot of time (especially before work) so luckily for you it’s one of the new trends for this season. The barely there look is perfect for enhancing your natural beauty. To create a subtle look I’d suggest a light coverage for a fresh skin feel (caking foundation never looks good), a soft rose blush will also give you that bit of colour you will need in the colder months. To enhance the eyes a light matte colour shadow will be enough to define the crease, along with a precise eyeliner flick but ever so slightly as you want it to look as natural as possible. To finish the look off or you’ll need is a coat of mascara to open up the eyes and a soft pink or nude lipstick.
The cold means you can start introducing darker colours back into your life including your make-up products and the best way of doing this is with the lips. This season it’s all about the darker reds and berry coloured lipsticks and the biggest trend is blackberry lips, which we know is quite bold but as long as you keep the lips the focal point and the rest of your make-up simple it should work a treat.
If you prefer to keep your lips simple and have your eyes as the accentuated feature on your face, the smokey eye look is perfect. Opting for matte greys or brown tones will give you a softer feel in comparison to black which can sometimes look quite heavy. When applying eye shadows it’s important to blend the product as much as possible to ensure that there are no harsh lines, finding the right blending brush that works for you is the first step.
