With New York and London Fashion Week over for another season, we are officially halfway through this season’s shows! Fashion Week is a great time for beauty enthusiasts to check out future trends and try them out ahead of time.
The following beauty looks are fresh from the catwalk and will look great for autumn:
Where: Nina Ricci, Zac Posen, Marni and Oscar de la Renta.
An easy way to update your look for autumn is to invest in the perfect matte red lipstick. The look this season was one of artful imperfection – so avoid lip liners and dab the colour on with a fingertip for that devil-may-care appeal.
Product must-buy: Poppy King Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope lipsticks.
2. 1960s flick
Where: Rag & Bone, Anna Sui, Lanvin and Emilio Pucci.
Flicked eyeliner is a trend that truly stands the test of time. This season pair an exaggerated flick with nude eyelids and neutral lips for that sexy 60s feel.
Product must-buy: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner.
Where: Holly Fulton, Oscar de la Renta and Ruffian.
Summer is over and so are bright nails – this season’s nails are more classic with a gothic edge. Black or navy hues are ideal for a sophisticated look that has just enough edge.
Product must-buy: Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish in Black Cab.
4. The wet look
Where: Balmain, Christian Dior, Prada and Balenciaga.
Polished blow-dried locks are no longer in Vogue – instead, this season’s fashion shows were rife with drip-dry hair do’s paired with tough-girl make-up. Use a wet-look gel from your roots to mid-length and keep ends dry for a messy, grungy look.
Must-buy product: TiGi Catwalk Session Series Wet Look Hair Gel.
Where: Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham and Antonio Berardi.
Steering clear of dewy complexions, skin is looking velvety smooth and matte this season. Use a medium to full-coverage foundation and finish with loose powder.
Product must-buy: Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation.
