3 Autumn Make-Up Trends that are in Vogue

Written by: Clare Weyers Date of published: . Posted in Make up

Get make-up looking like it’s straight out of Vogue with these three Autumnal trends.

The Autumn/Winter 2014 fashion shows were dominated by three very striking make-up trends this year. Though the natural look remains on the cards for the coming season, intense flashes of colour, metallics, and graphic eyeliner are set to liven things up.

Colour Flashes

Sapphire, azure, cerulean, indigo and electric blue shades are back for autumn thanks to Christian Dior. If you can keep the rest of your make-up low key, then a swipe of blue eyeshadow across the lids can be both bold and enchanting. A light application of glitter adds a magical finish to the look.

Top Tips for Blue Make-Up: Keep your blues to the upper lid with just a thin line under the lower lashes to highlight the eyes. If you have blue eyes, be careful not to match the colours up exactly or the focus will be taken away from the dramatic colouring.

Precious Metals

Metallic make-up was all over the New York fashion shows with luscious gold eyeliner at Badgley Mischka, shimmering silver shadow at Donna Karan and beautiful bronze lips at Rodarte. Precious metal tones can be completely mesmerizing. James Kaliardos, lips make-up artist at the Rodarte show, calls precious metal colours “fairy-tale makeup.”

Top Tips for Metallic Make-Up: Metal shades can be a bit intimidating if you’re not used to them. Start of with toned down golds and bronzes that will compliment your skin tone. When you’re ready for silver, try using your usual black eyeliner and glamming it up with a silver shadow along the outer edges of your eyes.

Graphic Black Liner

Fashion shows always reveal incredibly innovative eyeliner art and Autumn 2014 has been no exception. Eyeliner experts are amping up the lines to give the impression of an artist’s brush stroke to the liner. Lanvin was all about stippled black liner, while Dries Van Noten went for graphic black blocks.

Top Tips for Graphic Black Eyeliner: Don’t be afraid experiment. No one gets their graphic eyeliner style right without practice, so you’ve got to just go for it. There are plenty of more avant-garde looks making waves, but I think that minimal liner can be just as edgy. Try an outward flick to create a feline look.

Make up trends for Spring/Summer 2013

Written by: Clare Weyers Date of published: . Posted in Make up, Trends

Having been in the Beauty industry for nearly 20 years and now teaching every aspect at my Training School Elite School of Beauty Therapy, I wanted to share with you the Hair and Makeup trends for this Spring and summer.

I constantly get asked what colour trends are about throughout the year and it’s my job to keep up to date and current for me to pass onto my students and for them to pass onto their clients. So here goes…….

Firstly we’re going to look at the eyes for the up and coming season. For my first on-trend look it’s all about bright eyes with colours including Duck egg blues, greens, rose petal pink, warm peach and sparkly Lilac giving an amazing eye-catching and smooth glittery look. These looks can be applied all over the eyes or just as a line in the crease of your eyelids. Try keeping your lips nude and your cheeks with just a hint of warmth (A look favoured by Stella McCartney for her models).

Our next looks for the eyes is the classic smoky look, but instead of it all being about grey, apply in the same way but with gold’s, bronzes and silvers. Grey still has its place but by using these alternative colours, it brings a whole fresher feel to this look. Try pulling the eye shadow out in a wing-like shape over the whole eye and maybe add some Diamante’s for a real show stopping look. Despite some people thinking this is just an evening look, try it out in the day and I’ll think you’ll be surprised as to how wearable and flexible this look can be.

Nude make up never seems to go out of fashion and this year is no different! If the bright or smoky eyes aren’t for you then just apply a hint of foundation giving a natural and fresh look with a subtle warm hue of blusher lightly brushed over the cheeks with natural glowing lips to give an amazing illuminating effect that everyone can wear.

Lastly I’m going to talk about lips! This season it’s all about the bright cerise pink, post box red, rose hues applied in crayon form or if you still like a sheer gloss, which works equally as well. Or try teaming delicate grey eye shadow with Aubergine lips for a more glamorous look and one used by Dolce and Gabbana.

Ultimately if you want to go for bright lips then team them with a slightly nuder eye and if you want to go bright eyed then ideally go nude on the lips!
