Autumn/Winter Makeup

Hello everyone,

Its getting a lot colder here in the UK and it feels more like Winter everyday and with Christmas getting very close. I thought that I would share with you some autumn/winter makeup trends and my chosen products for these trends.

Trend One - Smokey eyes paired with a nude lip, and a light base.

The first trend is some smokey but still nude eyes, with a very light but glowing base and a nude lip.

We saw this look in Paris Fashion Week on the show Chloe, you can see that it's very nude all over and is very natural but femening.

Then again from the show Balmain at Paris Fashion Week we saw model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, wearing some light eyes and nude lip with strong brows and contour, with a lovely sleek low ponytail with a middle parting.

I first of kept in mind that we saw a lot of glowing but light foundation as a base, I reached for the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation, this gives you a light base but keeps your skin looking radiant and glowing at the same time. For cheeks again very minimalistic, for this I chose the Mac Pro Longwear blush in Rosy Outlook applied very lightly over the cheeks. Then onto eyes you wanted to neutralise all the veins, redness and discolouration in your lids, this is why I chose Mac's Paintpot in Painterly. Onto eye shadow I kept it very simple and not too shimmery, I used the Urban Decay Naked 2 Pallete with the colours Foxy all over the lid, Tease in the crease with Half Baked over Foxy and under the lower lashes, all blended out with no harsh edges, also I would keep mascara very minimal with some brown/purple eye liner to softly add depth. Lastly onto well moisturised lips I would use the Soap and Glory Gloss Stick in Nudist over the lips, for a your lips but better.

Trend Two - Light eyes and a bold lip, with medium-full overage bases.

The second trend is again some light eyes but this time channeled with a bold lip, but with some medium to full coverage foundation for a base.

Here we see model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley modeling for the show of Grace in London Fashion Week. Glowing medium-full coverage foundation with a bold lipstick.

If anyone is going to pull off a purple lip Cara Delevigne can! Again with the light eyes and purple lips its a perfect looks for Autumn and Winter.

To start with a medium to full cover foundation has to be the Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation, this is great for coverage and any skin type. Then for a very light cheek I have picked out the Bourjois Cream Blush in 03, a perfect flushed pink for the apples of your cheeks. Onto eyes, for a base I went for the Mac Pro Longwear paint pot in Let's Skate, a lovely shimmery pink. Them to define your eyes a bit more I have used the HD Brows eye and brow pallete with the colour medium brown in the crease and Carbon on the upper lash line. Lastly the statement part, I have gone for the Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Plum Russian with the Sephora Lip Gloss on top in Purple. Also if your looking for a red option in the picture above of Rosie she is wearing Mac's Russian Red lipstick.
