How are you this Sunday?? I have been pretty busy lately since I am trying to sort my life out...!!However...I managed to spend some time going through this Autumn's make-up trends and picking out two of my favourite ones to re-create and share with you.
So...this autumn there are several make-up trends...from bold dark lips , to flawless natural looking skin, warm caramel and colourful smokey eyes as well as a hint of symmetrical eyeliner lines ,the oldie but goodie "ombre effect"and the bold graphic eyebrows.
Whatever floats your boat really...!! My personal favourites are the very simply-defined eyes and also the ombre bold dark lips. I am also loving the caramel tones for eyes and the natural looking skin but I wouldn't personally call those "trends".
So...I tried out the two trends that stood out to me the most and...here they are...
The Ombre Lip (inspired by Lisa Eldridge's make-up for Chinese Vogue)
I started with MAC's "What Joy" lipstick. I used a Sephora lip brush and a little bit of the Revlon Lip butter in Raspberry Pie and blended it into "What Joy". Then I used the brush again but this time I took some black gel eyeliner and blended it on the corner of my lips until it looked seamless. Lastly, I used some MAC Dazzleglass Cream in the colour "Do it up" in the middle inner part of the lips aaaand that is all...!!
The Simply Defined Eye
The products I used:
I used two eye shadows and a bit of mascara(yep...that is all). I used a fluffy brush to blend a bit of NO7's "Wheatsheaf" e/s all over the eye lid and then with a crease brush I used the medium grey shade(the bottom left one) from this IsaDora e/s quartet to define the crease. I finished off the look with some Rimmel "Sexy Curves" mascara in 002 Brown Black. Unfortunately the colours look somewhat washed-out in the picture but it is pretty self-explanatory, I think.
I love this trend because it is effortless and it can look extremely sophisticated and clean even though it takes 2 about two minutes to do.
I loved working on this post and I hope you like it as well...!!!
