Makeup Trends - Autumn/Winter 2010/11

If Vogue is anything to go by ;), natural-looking skin with a silky matte finish is one of the season’s top trends.  The lucky few born with flawless completion can happily sport the foundation-free look, while the rest of us willing to achieve this radiant, alabaster glow have no choice but to stick to good moisturisers,foundation, powder and blush. Sigh!

Eye-makeup for winter/fall 2010 is all about gorgeous browns, from toffee to chocolaty shades - they perfectly compliment the flawless makeup look. Warm shades add a slightly old-fashioned look to your eyes, creating this sepia tone effect.Minimalism is key so we can forget about fake lashes and tones of mascara – yay!

 If you wish to take minimalism to another level, try the nude lashes look:

Now you can look fashionable even on a lazy Sunday in! ;)

If, like me, you love your black eyeliner, don’t be afraid to experiment and add a personal touch to the standard sultry look – add a hint of colour or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try out the horizontal lines makeup! I don’t even dare to imagine how it would make me look though!:

Last but not least, my personal favourite - beautiful, dramatic lips in rich, dark shades of red. The classic 60’s reds have been given an edgy upgrade, so next time you’re shopping for lip gloss/lipstick, make sure you check out the amazing burgundy, blackberry and bordeau shades. They go surprisingly well with light, pale skin, giving your lips an almost goth-like, wine-stained effect.

Although I don't religiously follow the latest trends, especially when it comes to makeup (I love a bit of personal style and individualism), I loved this season’s looks so much that I couldn’t wait to give them a try. And here are the results:

                          Eye Makeup -Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick
                          Face -Bobbi Brown  Foundation Stick + Creamy Concealer
                          Lips -Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss + Liquid Metal
