Hot and sunny days may be drawing to a close, leaving us a tad deflated. Should you need some inspiration to revamp your look and revive your mood, fear not. Here are 5 gorgeous A/W19 beauty trends so good you’ll be glad the summer is over. In fact, they will keep you smiling until Christmas.
1.Extreme Cat Eye
We saw Louis Vuitton and Dior’s models sporting the cat eye ++ and huge black bottom lashes. This extreme look may take some practice and I recommend a liquid eyeliner for achieving success. One of my favourites is Rimmel’s Wonderwing Eyeliner in black, £5.99, www.lookfantastic.com
2.Deep Burgundy/ Bold Red Lips
Chloe, Louis Vuitton and Tommy Hilfiger presented models looking incredible with either deep burgundy or bold crimson lips. (Both matte and silky featured on the runway). The rest of the complexion remained mainly minimal (as is a key trend again). This really sets your lips as one awesomely-powerful signature look.
I love Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme, £31, www.chanel.com
3.Oh-So Dewy Skin
Similarly to SS/19, the less-is-more complexion remains to be a much sought-after look; thus, models across the board rocked this look during Paris fashion week. As we see (and love) this minimal makeup concept, the need to support it with super-dewy skin must stay high on the agenda. For this, ensure you are using your facial oils and illuminator. I’m loving Iconic London’s illuminator, £30, www.iconiclondon.com. It literally transforms even partied-until-dawn skin into a complexion of utter dewy radiance. So good!
4.A Touch Of Neon
Neon eyeshadows were a huge hit on the runways. Should you be feeling a little sassy and want to make a statement, splash some neon (light blues, pinks and purples were seen everywhere) on those lids. Make sure you keep the rest of your complexion as minimal as possible so as to avoid the clown! I’m obsessed with Huda Beauty’s Neon Pink Obsessions Palette, £27, www.cultbeauty.co.uk
Combining 9 shadows brimming with richly-pigmented vibrancy and oozing sass, this is one palette you can’t be without.
Going with the minimal makeup look, and applying a little blush works like a dream.On the runways we saw Chanel’s models demonstrate the sheer magnitude of jaw-dropping impact this delicate look can achieve. Fresh and simple, yet immensely beautiful. To achieve this look, opt for minimal makeup, a few drops of dewy illuminator and a sweep of pale pink blush. I love MAC’s Mineralize Blush, £23.50, www.maccosmetics.co.uk
