Autumn Winter 18/19 Beauty Trends!

Following my fashion trends post, it was only appropriate to discuss the beauty trends we will see this AW18/19.  Seeing as the fashion trends are not pushing many envelopes, it proved interesting to look into the types of beauty looks that labels were leaning towards on the runway.  To my pleasant surprise, many of these trends are very doable for everyday.  It's not hard to take the runway to the streets this season!

Corporate Chic. We saw that 'corporate chic' or office fashions was a huge trend for Autumn/Winter 2017.  In the era of #MeToo and #GirlBoss, it comes to no surprise that worker fashion is flooding the runway.  Having a sleek bun, and au naturale makeup that makes one appear polished is the best way to rock this trend.  As someone who plans to join the professional world, this is the perfect style to adopt for everyday. 

Brands: Alexander Wang, Chanel, Balmain

Bold eyeliner.  This trend reappears every season.  Eyeliner can easily shape the nature of the look to be bold, simple, or edgy.  Many brands display wild looks that may not be appropriate for everyday but live and let live - have fun with your eyeliner!  It may even be recommended to play with coloured eyeliner, like blues on the waterline which was my high school staple. 

Brands: Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Paul and Joe, Sonia Rykiel, Altuzarra

Red lips. Everyone and anyone can feel confident in a red lip.  You just have to find the undertone that suits you best.  Nowadays, the drugstore has accessible and diverse range of shades.  Personally, I feel that a red lip would suit a majority of neutral-based eyeshadow looks (such as brown/black based smokey eyes).  One of my favorite go-tos is bold mascara and red lips for a put-together and simple appeal.  

Brands: Rochas, Alexander McQueen, Erdem, Brandon Maxwell, Dolce and Gabbana

Butterfly Eyelashes.  Whenever I do makeup, I have to use mascara.  In the past, I shied away from it because it was a constant struggle to take it off.   How silly I was.  This Autumn Winter is all about bold lashes- they can spidery, they can be fluttery, but they must be lengthy and dramatic.  You can achieve this with mascara (I will be posting a mascara routine soon) or falsies which is the traditional way.  

Brands: Givenchy, Valentino, Dries Van Noten, Versace

Glitter. Obviously we cannot go into work with glitter masks like the runway models were representing.  However, we can replace our black eyeliner with glitter eyeliner instead or use black that has fine glitter.  In addition, this is a great time to bring back strobing which made its debut in 2015.  Don't be afraid to get highlighter happy!

Brands: Giambattista Valli, 

Glossy skin. We saw that glossy material is making a statement this season.  On top of this, having a fully prepped skin that enables your natural glow to come through has been noted on the runways.  Makeup artists are keen to reduce the amount of foundation or conceal used, and opt for moisturised and hydrated makeup looks.  

Brands: Balmain, Isabel Marant, Lanvin, Versace
