Autumn 2013 is here and there are some fantastic products on the high street and online to help you achieve make up looks that are bang on trend this season.
It’s time to get artistic with colourful peacock shades of eye shadows, teal and blue are particularly on trend this season. Opt for Urban Decay shadow in ‘Hijack’ (£12.60) sweep the colour onto your eyelids, blend with a clean dry brush in your eye socket and add a dot of gold eye shadow into the inner corner of your eyes. Keep your lashes natural using Lancome ‘Hypnose Mascara’ (£22). Finally create a golden sunkissed finish by dusting Estée Lauder “Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer” (£21.50) onto your forehead, nose and cheekbones. As a makeup artist in Manchester I’m still paying special attention to eye brows, making sure they are well groomed and well defined, try not to over pluck as full eye brows are here to stay!
Makeup bases were the main focus with matt complexions and played down blusher featuring on the Autumn/Winter 2013 catwalks. Keep hold of your gel or liquid liners as black vintage flicks are still very much on trend. Bring the look together with a lipstick using Giorgio Armani ‘Rouge D’Armani in Pink 500’ (£25). To finish, go for Chanel Le Blush Creme ‘Inspiration’ (£27), which fits perfectly.
For an alternative classic red carpet look, which never tires and always looks fabulous, keep the eyes natural using Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow in ‘Beige Rose’ (£5.99) To complement the look smudge a black kohl eyeliner across your lower lash line with lashings of mascara. Place the focus onto your lips, go for it with stained berry lips using Bobbi Brown ‘Rose Berry’ (£19) and to finish define your cheekbones with Bare Minerals Blusher in ‘True’ (£19)
