It’s time to update your beauty routine with a fresh look for fall. The AW2014-15 catwalks were filled with beautiful, avant-garde (read: extreme) inspirations for us to draw upon. Here are our top picks of the fall beauty trends and how to take them from runway to reality.
Runway: Copper, gold and silver were seen from lash line to brows, as well as on the lips.
Real way: We love a light-handed wash of metallic eye shadow to add a touch of shimmer to your look. Apply a bit of iridescent powder at the inner corner of your eyes for an eye-opening option. For the lips, try a coordinating sweep of sparkling gloss for a night-out.
Lots Of Lashes
Runway: Flirtatious doll-like and spidery lashes.
Real way: Skip loading on layers of mascara and opt for well-placed falsies instead. Individual lashes are easier to apply than you may think. Squirt a dab of lash glue on to the back of your hand and grab the lash with your tweezers. Dab and place for a bright doe-eyed look.
Runway: Eyes rimmed with bold eyeliner.
Real way: Skip the raccoon look. Instead, use eyeliner in a neat, pointed manner. This trend translates well for dressier days in real life. Try it with a neutral shadow as a base and use a powder liner for a softer, smoky look.
Let It Glow
Runway: Flawless skin accented by a fresh cheek
Real way: Flawless skin accented by a fresh cheek… No need to alter this wearable catwalk look. In fact, this is the prettiest, easiest trend to tackle this fall. Moisturize, add foundation/concealer to minimize imperfections and use a natural looking blush to emulate a rosy glow.
Runway: Lips packed a powerful punch adorned with burgundy and berry tones.
Real way: Tap into your vampy side and accentuate your pout with the season’s darker hues. Apply the colour straight from the tube and blot with a tissue for a diffused look. Keep the rest of your face neutral to master this makeup look and draw attention to your lips.
