Trends

This season, beauty trends go through the spectrum of possibility starting at high impact with the the sci-fi goddess that made their way down Prada’s Fall runway to the bare faces of Valentino’s statuesque models. Whether it’s party ready glam you’re after, or demur pretty you wish to achieve, we’ve got the expert beauty how to tips to help create your perfect fall beauty look.

This look is all about fresh-faced innocence.

Step 1

A good tip is, to achieve a glowing result is whilst your moisturizer is still damp on the skin, massage your foundation in to create a natural, dewy look; a personal favorite is DiorSkin Nude Foundation

Step 2

Groom your eyebrows with Lancome’s Hypnose Brow Shaper, and then reach for the trusty Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers to open up those peepers. Keep mascara to 1 coat, which is all you’ll need with Clinique’s High Volume Extreme Impact Mascara

Step 3

Here comes the romantic part: using Shiseido’s Camellia Compact, sweep a brush through and tap off the excess. Smile at yourself and sweep the color from those juicy apples away to the center of your cheekbone — no zebra stripes here please, and don’t apply too close to the center of the face or you’ll look sunburned. Build the color and intensity with light layers until you’re suitably flushed.

Step 4

The finishing touch comes with Rouge Dior Nude Lip Colour in Trompe L’Oeil. If you need a dab of moisture pat a tiny amount of MAC’s CreamSheen Gloss in either Dynasty at Dusk or Imperial Light for a peachier tone.

Et Voila…as if butter wouldn’t melt.

 

Gorgeous, velvety glamorous eyes, this look takes a little patience, but is clearly worth it.

Step 1

Grab a Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint in Big Blue, and give your eyelids a scribble from your lashline up to your crease, lightly along the browbone towards your nose, and also along your lower lashline; use your middle-finger to even the color out and smudge it.

Step 2

Do the same again, from the lashline up, with emphasis in the crease, and underneath, with the darker shade Massive Midnight. The trick to a blended smokey eye is to work the colors backwards, from lightest to darkest.

Step 3

Take Nars’ Matte Eyeshadow in Royal, and with a mid-sized, soft eyeshadow brush push this deep blue into the eyelid going from the outside corner to roughly 1/3 of the way, and underneath the eye. If you go half way across the eyelid, it will end up looking dated, so keep it current and use a little product as a time.

Step 4

Use Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wearing Gel Eyeliner in Caviar Ink, along the top lashline and a little underneath just at the corner of the eye. Follow with the dramatic DiorShow Mascara in Rich Black, and finish with a touch of MAC’s Pure Zen on the lips.

2 coats of Estee Lauder’s Nail Colour by Tom Pecheux  in Blue Blood polishes off this look perfectly.

 

Irresistibly alluring, these lips are a classic statement.

Step 1

It’s super important to pamper that pout before adding color, so give them a scrub using Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, and then follow with Korres Lip butter for seriously hydration.

Step 2

Bright skin is of the essence and Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist Serum will help you get there; then eliminate shadows and give yourself a glow with Shiseido’s Radiant Lifting Foundation.

Step 3

Tame those unruly brows with Kevyn Aucoin’s The Precision Brow Pencil. For those of you lucky to have even, obedient eyebrows, Lancome’s new Le Regard Pro Eyes and Brow Kit is brilliantly multi-functional. Neutral eyeshadows with a standard brown eyebrow powder means you can get 2 results with one little palette — perfect for the handbag.

Step 4

One of my favorite mascara’s Maybelline’s Full & Soft will leave your lashes, defined, soft and flirty, so you can focus on your lips.

Step 5

Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge is a true red, whilst Estee Lauder offers Pure Colour Vivid Shine in Violet Electra an intensely deep fuscia, and Fireball, a fabulously raging orange. Shu Uemura’s small Concealer Brush no.10 makes for a great lip brush to help spread color evenly and get a smooth finish.

 

This look is cool, edgy, and not for the faint-heared.

Step 1

Definitely prepare under the eye with Even Better Eyes, Clinique’s Dark Circle Corrector

Step 2

Skin should be minimally made up and Un-Cover Up by RMS is the only way to go, followed by a light dusting of Burberry’s Sheer Luminous Pressed Powder

Step 3

Use Elizabeth Arden’s Eye Fix Primer anywhere you will be applying color, to ensure it stays put. MAC’s Paint Pot in Blackground is good for this look, and you will need a couple of brushes to execute this cleanly.

Step 4

I advise sketching the shape of this first before filling in, and have Q-Tips at the ready in case of any mishaps. Then, take Prescriptives Jet eyeliner pencil to line the upper and lower lashlines, and inside the lower eyelash line. No mascara for this as you don’t want it to look too polished.

Step 5

A little Laura Mercier Matt Bronzing Powder will lift this look, and all you need now is a slick of your favorite lipbalm. If you’ve time, to apply Nars Stormbird nail polish, you’ll be rockin’ and rollin’.

 

Peacock inspired, eyeshadow at Roberto Cavalli was mesmerizing.

Step 1

Preparatory products like MAC Prep & Prime Natural Radiance and Nars Pro Prime Eyeshadow Base makes this a scinch.

Step 2

Spray L’Oreal Elnett Satin hairspray onto a clean, disposable mascara wand, and run through your eyebrow, then turn to Nars High Society eyeshadow palette for some serious color.

Step 3

With a soft blending blush and a smaller brush for application, use the gorgeous colors in the palette as and where you want, ensuring to keep darker to the outside of the eye, and lighter colors to the inside. Use the smaller brush to pat color where you want, and the softer blending brush to move it to where you want. Bobbi Brown’s Metallic Gold is great for highlighting the inside corner of the eye, top and bottom.

Step 4

Elizabeth Arden’s Gunmetal smokey grey eyeliner will bring this together so feel free to line top and bottom lashes, closely to the lashline, and along the inside of the lower lashline. Go to town with Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Stretch Lengthening Mascara for added drama

Step 5

Lancome’s Blush Highlighter from the new Midnight Roses Collection and Tom Ford Private Blend Lipstick in Blush Nude will add the perfect hint of color to cheek and lips.

*Bonus Step*
Try a coat of Essie’s gorgeous deep green Stylenomics, and a matte top coat of Lancome’s Limited Edition Givre Magique for an unusual twist.
