A/W18 Makeup Looks to Wear Now

The Autumn Winter Makeup Looks to Wear Now | Beauty Expert

Take a Look Back at the Autumn Winter Fashion Shows

With autumn fast approaching, we’re taking the opportunity to take a look back at the Autumn Winter Fashion Shows which showcased trend predictions for this upcoming season. We’ve found the best beauty products that help you recreate these trending autumn winter makeup looks, but also make them more wearable for every day.

Metallic Maven

If you thought glitter was big in Spring Summer, it’s going to be even bigger in Autumn Winter. To wear it in a natural way for every day, select products with a subtle shimmer sheen that catch the light in a beautiful way. We’re favouring cream and liquid formulas that wear well throughout the day for maximum impact. For a more glossy editorial look, opt for an eye gloss topper such as the Kevyn Aucoin The Exotique Diamond Eye Gloss.

Luscious Lashes

The Marni AW18 show was all about lengthened eyelashes, likely with the aid of false lashes. To replicate the look with mascara, we’ve sourced the best cult lengthening mascaras. We also recommend using the BBB London Lash Oil treatment to keep them looking healthy and well-conditioned.

Back to Basics

Autumn winter makeup doesn’t have to be avantgarde, it can also be about rediscovering base makeup and making it work for your day to day. Christopher Kane kept the models stripped back and showcasing their prepped fresh skin. For this, we’d recommend starting with a plumping brightening mask to prep the skin, such as the Emma Hardie Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask.

For the makeup look, we’d opt for the Chantecaille Future Skin Oil Free Foundation or the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer – two creamy matte foundations that are buildable to achieve your desired coverage, but still allow the skin to breathe.

Rosy Glow

Rose gold looks fantastic on all skin tones, and it’s incredibly easy to pull off. Whether you want to try a subtle eye look, or go for a dramatic rose gold highlight, there’s a variety of rose tones to choose from. One of our favourite petal rose blush options is the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher as it is a blendable, radiance-boosting, water-resistant formula.

Indigo Eyes

At the Caroline Herrera A/W18 Show, we caught a glimpse of the new beauty trend: indigo eye shadow. A more grown-up version of the mermaid trend, indigo means business. Opt for a deep blue eyeliner in the waterline and sweep the lid with eye primer and a strong matte powder shadow. For the ultimate look, match your nail colour to the same colour palette.

Violet Vibes

Indigo not your thing? Why not try violet? This bold look is all about choosing one tone of purple and using a small flat eye shadow to create a thin line above the lash line to emphasise the lashes.
