Autumn Winter Beauty Trending
Burgundy, wine, knits, boots, Christmas jumpers, and snoods. Perhaps these are just some of the few image that pop into your mind when 'autumn/winter trends' is whispered into your ear. And then, there's the beauty front. Stereotypically, souls a like crack out the deep lipsticks and winged liner, but, perhaps a little read and you'll be looking more trend on than your trendy friend.
Occasionally, the cold weather-flow is more made for model faces than our own, but with a little bit of play, a few notes can become your own. Just read below.
Matte and satin skin. In years past, we've embraced the glow--packing on highlighters and luminizing bases. Albeit, currently, on the runway, it seems as though more time is spent on perfected skin than on the clothes themselves. For your daily base, crack out the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint--a satin finish and good coverage will leave your skin looking nearly on trend. But add a layer of the By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder to become even more on point. Add it's pore concealing, hydrating properties, and slightly matte, yet natural finish and you've got a sub-zero temperature favorite. And it looks like snow, too.
Red nails. Spotted, at Valentino. Yes, the brand practically copyrighted the bloody-chic color themselves, but add a hit to your tips. I'm sure we all have variations of the shade lying around (Essie Aperitif, comes to mind), but I'll be painting on Essie's Lollipop.
Feature brows. Okay, okay, I lucked out on this one. It's time to cancel your threading appointment and embrace your natural visage forest. Whether it's already too late and you really need to draw each hair on or just add a few touch-ups here and there, the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil will serve you through.
Blush-free faces. Both English-roses and flush-free femmes alike should stash the blusher. If you're like me and feel the need for some added face definition, reach for the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder. Grey-toned and resembling most closely to a natural shadow, hit the pan for model-esque cheeks.
Purple and red metallic shadow. Perhaps you're heart rate is pumping after reading the previous flush-free proposition. But we already bought a new autumn blush palette. Well, instead of dishing some more cash for some one-year-trending eyeshadows, employ your plum and red-toned blushes for eye duty. My choice? NARS Luster--not too red to make you appear hay-fever-ish, a shot of gold for a wearable touch, and a warm tone to make you look spot-on.
Petal stained lip. Since you're downing all that water (just pretend), it comes in handy that stained lips are in radar. The Model Co. Cheek + Lip Tint in Rosy Red, patted onto the lips means a berry-pink tint without any mistletoe mishaps.
Alas, you'll be ahead of the crowd with enough info to last you all season. Next time you see that plum blusher you just 'must have', save some cash. You'll look more fab without it.
