From Max Mara’s mermaid eyes to Marchesa’s bold lips, draw catwalk inspiration from this season’s statement beauty trends.
From Chanel’s block-panelled blue accents to Max Mara’s sea green shades, this season’s eye pays tribute to oceanic hues. Channel retro vibes with block shadow from the lashes to the underneath of the eyebrow, or highlight above and below the eye for a more subtle look. Reminiscent of fish scales, iridescent sequins add a mystic shimmer while a turquoise-lined eyebrows provide edge to occasion wear.
Shimmer and Shine
Antonio Marras’ silver accented eyes and Prada’s gold lips demonstrated the huge part metallics played in fashion month and as we lead into Christmas and the New Year, shimmering accents will be prevalent. Highlight your features with glitter-encrusted lids, golden rouge or dashes of glamourous gold for a party-ready look that packs a punch.
Less most certainly is more this season, as barefaced beauty encapsulates the natural look. A light coating of foundation, minimal strokes of the eyebrow pencil and a dab of lip balm are all you need for that pared-back look. To compliment, avoid intricate hairstyles in favour of loose waves and low-slung ponies for a look that says ‘I woke up like this’.
A bold red lip might not seem revolutionary, but after seasons of subtle nudes and light tints, the brick shade is well and truly back, interpreted on the catwalk by Dolce & Gabbana and Marchesa this season. As fall develops, plum and berry shades compliment autumnal attire, adding edge to a day look and an elegant finish to an evening outfit. Adopt a gloss for high impact, or smudge the edge of your lips with your finger for a diffused, ombre effect.
