Autumn/Winter 2015 Beauty Trends

Can you believe we’re already in August?! Before we know it we’ll be buying Christmas presents! We know we said the dreaded ‘C’ word way too early, but it’s never too early to look ahead to Autumn and Winter when it comes to beauty. We’ve scoured the A/W2015 runways to find the biggest beauty trends so you know what updates you should be making to your routine to stay up to date and ahead of the game next season!

1.     Red lipstick

If you don’t own a red lipstick then you must! Red lipstick is a sure way of adding a bit of glamour to your look and with millions of shades to choose from there is a shade to suit everyone. A variety of shades were spotted at fashion week such as a bright striking red at Monique Lhuillier and this orangey red shade spotted at 3.1 Phillip Lim.

2.     'Barely there' makeup

The strobing trend issued a huge change in the makeup industry this season after contour was such a huge hit. Well next season is no different, as we will all be carrying on the ‘barely there’ glowing look. Unlike summer when we could rock a barely there look but with a tan, next season is all about the flush in your cheeks! Looking like you have been for a brisk walk in the middle of winter, adding a touch of peach or light pink blush to your cheeks gives you that fresh wintry look á la Chloé and Topshop Unique.

3.     Black eyeliner

Black eyeliner was all over the runways at fashion week earlier in the year setting the trends for this autumn/winter. We know, you’re thinking well that’s hardly new, but the difference with this trend is that there are hundreds of different ways to rock the look. We particularly love the black waterline look spotted at Versace and Victoria Beckham who smudged it out to create a smoky effect.

4.     Smoky eyes

Speaking of smoky looks, smoky eyes never go out of fashion and this season they are going to be easier than ever! If you have never exactly mastered the art of the smoky eye then this is the season for you! The blended smoky eye seen at was seen all over the A/W runways namely Burberry Prorsum and Diane Von Furstenburg, all you have to do is pop a dark grey shade on your lid and blend blend blend. Easy!

5.     Goth Lips

If a red glam lip isn’t your thing then you might be more a fan of these dark goth lips. From ultra black lipstick at Giles right through to a deep plum at Marc Jacobs, unleash your inner goth next season!

6.     Lip gloss

Yes, it is back! Lip gloss did a little disappearing act on us for the past few years ever since it was a huge hit in the 90s but it is making a return to your makeup bag! However we don’t recommend using the same one you were using back in the 90s, definitely buy a new one! All you need to carry off the trend is a clear lip gloss on top of plain nude lips just like the models from the Rodarte and Rag and Bone shows.

7.     Heavy metal

Of course party season isn’t complete without a bit of glitter! Metal tones were spotted all over the runways showcasing the best of gold, silver and copper tones in a variety of ways. If you want to be a bit fun and playful try a glitter lash look like Carolina Herrera or opt for sequins á la Tadashi shoji. For something a bit subtler yet still super cool create a gunmetal or gold party eye similar to Mara Hoffman.
