Hottest Beauty Trends For AW15

Today's post is a guest post by Amy Mia Goldsmith. When I was contacted by Amy and she mentioned the topic I knew straight away I wanted to feature it on my blog. I love sussing out the different makeup trends that appear each season. As we enter into Autumn and Winter here's a look at some of the current trends written by Amy.

Hello girls,

It seems that it is the right time to gather the impressions of the standout looks that marched the runway this month. Although haute couture is not in store for most of us, this autumn/winter season is all about turning your face into a canvas and making a statement with bold makeup. From graphic eyeliner, to glittering metallic shadows, to hot red lipstick, there are so many ways you can make it happen.

Check out the latest beauty trends of the season and get inspired.

1. Something Blue


One thing is certain: blue is the new black this season. From baby blue, and icy white, to bolder aqua marine and cobalt blue, using an all blue palette is an imperative. The color has a mysterious ethereal aura surrounding it. Vibrant cobalt dominated at Maison Margiela and Jean Paul Gaultier fashion shows, where ladies were sent onto the catwalk with fabric-like swatches, exaggerated cat-eyes and mariniere stripes on top and bottom lash lines. The lesson of the season is: if you are lacking boldness, compensate it with some bold blue hues.

2. Metallic eyes

This season is all about the eyes, with a focus on opacity and shape. If you wish to make a clear statement, luckily for you, metallics are back in a big way. They were all over the runways. Shimmers, sparkles, sequins, they come in all shapes and forms – from soft shimmers to reflective party eyes. Smokey eyes don’t have to be all about black. Molten metallics are equally steamy, but they will give your eyes a much fresher look.If you are brave enough, try the eye-catching gold foil lids, mixed with smoky black. Don’t be afraid to combine warm and cool hues. Or just draw a gold, bronze or silver line across the lower lids.

3. Red lipstick - now & forever

Red lipstick made a huge comeback after being away for a few seasons. It is not a revolutionary idea, but classic red lips always deserve to be mentioned. It comes in a range of colors, from brick-red to tangerine seen at Kaelen show, to oxblood lips and darker hues at Dolce &Gabbana. In matte or glossy, everyone can find their favorite. So, if you haven’t been bold enough to wear it so far, stand out this autumn with some slight cherry hue.

4. Skin is In

A glowing complexion is always in, but this season it is a must. At Calvin Klein, Pucci, Valentino, Nina Ricci, and many more, they went for a well-nourished look. The fresh skin effect was achieved with face oils, concealers, and highlighters. So, the best fashion advice for this autumn and winter might be to drink plenty of water, get enough sleep, and invest in quality skincare products. Skin care products from SkinCeuticals contain quality moisturizers, soothing gels and balms that will help you achieve this. Aussies, you can get  Skinceuticals skincare products from Alive Skin+Hair.

5. Plaits for Rainy Days

The frizz-taming power of plaits is appealing to all of us, and now that the style has become  haute couture, we have one more reason to start plaiting. We saw them at Fendi, Stella McCartney, Pucci, Marc Jacobs, Bluemarine – everywhere. There are so many ways to wear them. Whether it’s a halo braid, fishtail, plaited chignon, or simple twisted tresses, the catwalk has made its statement – plaits are back! They have already found their way to the red carpet as well. Make them as neat or as messy as you wish and you will still be super sophisticated, as  boho style is in this season.

Finally, we can all feel haute couture. Which autumn beauty trend is your favourite?
