The trend: Either it is a raspberry, or a blackcurrant, a strawberry or a gooseberry… it is fashion! For a lighter version of the colour, try wearing a soft formula as stain patting colour from lipstick’s bullet on lips and for a more intense version, use a creamier formula with a matching lip pencil.

The trend: It comes to sprinkle some magic to our special occasions! To light up your complexion and add mystery, you can use a touch of fine glitter that compliments your make up, on the eyes just above the pupils. If you are brave and you want to make a statement, apply strass or chunky pieces of glitter on your eyes or dress your lips, over your lipstick, in fine glitter with the help of an eyeshadow brush with synthetic hair.

The trend: It is such a timeless makeup! This trend is a remix of Brigitte Bardot’s style. It includes quite, natural tones on face and extravagant, bold eyeliners and lashes. This season, you are encouraged to play with your liner, push and extend the lines and your limits. Do not forget to add the final touch: a pair of rich false lashes!

The trend: Metallic eyeshadows is around for quite few seasons now, perhaps showing us the way to how futuristic make up will be. It is a trend I love and I honour from time to time, myself. As for colours, right now red- burgundy and everything from light to dark grey are HOT! Dare to wear your metallic eyeshadows with bold red lipctick in a glamorous night out!

The trend: The smudgier the better! This is the most wearable trend that can be worn from day to night and it is ideal for those days, when we are invited somewhere right after work and we have no time to re-apply make up. Things are simple: for a morning look, smudge the edges of a brown/ dark purple/dark green eyeliner that you have placed on your top lash lines or waterline and lower lash lines. Take the look from morning to night, reapplying black eyeliner on waterline and lower lash lines and smudging it. Pair it with red lipstick or your favourite “your lips but better” lipstick and you are good to go!

The trend: Whats is sexier and more mysterious than a smokey eye make up? A fuller smokey eye make up! This season, “smoke” reaches the ceiling, meaning the eye brows! Colours to play around with are black, bronze and khaki. To copy the trend, pair your intense smokey with a light peachy toned lipstick.

OMBRE LIPS

The trend: Ombre on hair, ombre on brows, ombre on clothes, ombre is everywhere! Now, it is also on lips. The trend encourage us to grab our red and berry lip pencils and lipsticks and our lip brushes. Start by scrubbing and prepping your lips, with the right for you products. Then, dab powder on lips to help your colours stay on place. Apply your darker colour first at outer corners with light strokes. Then, gently apply your lighter colour to the centre and blend the edges evenly, to diffuse any lines. Do not add lipgloss!

THE “NO MAKE UP” MAKE UP

8. glamour.com-Blumarine-eyes-beauty-w724 9.glamour.com-DSquared-beauty-w724

The trend:  The “no make up” make up, or else “Mans’ favourite”! The trend does not imply that we should go out nude from mascara or concealer but to use products that give natural textures and skin coloured effects, just enough to make us look healthy. That translates into fresh and dewy foundation, a good but light concealer and a fine milled powder, peachy eyeshadows, pinky- rosey blushes and rosey-peach lipsticks. Do not forget to add a thin black liner on top lash lines and mascara!

COLOURFUL EYES

 Aquilano RimondiM-A-CGiorgio-Armani-Kaleidoscope-makeup-for-fall-2013 

The trend: With blue being the colour mostly seen, this is the most playful trend of the season and it inspires us to go wild when doing makeup! Though blue eyeshadow is very popular, it is however a dangerous colour to wear and pretty much out outdated. There are many new products and palettes in the market, that finding wearable and fresh colours is guaranteed. Try out purple, lilac and grey-green, for a more modern version!

BUSHY BROWS

The trend: Bushy brows is probably the trend of the century. From messy to well groomed, we are seeing them around for years. To sport the trend you need to have naturally full brows or grow them as much as possible (if possible). Make sure to fill the gaps with pencils and brow powders or eye shadows and correct their shape with gels and liquid liners.

LA MÉCANIQUE DES DESSOUS

Armors, wires, steel, smothering leather and thick wool; suffering for beauty is written in our genes. The first “plastic surgeries” in history of humanity were definitely not on surgeons’ beds but behind 14th century tailor partitions.
