TRENDS FROM LEADING MAGAZINES
“For autumn/winter 2014, Versace kicked off the couture calendar with models sporting high-gloss chignons by Guido Palau and teal metallic eye make-up painted on by Pat McGrath, followed by Peter Philips’s silver-lined first outing as the creative director of Dior make-up the next day, and Chanel, Valentino and Giambattista Valli following after that. Eyes took the focus across the board – as at the ready-to-wear shows in February – with lips generally left a pale, natural hue. See the looks close-up here.”—VOGUE
- AW14 beauty is all about eyes, and blue was the bold shade du jour. Whether it’s a brightening flash of undereye liner or a full-on layer of glitter covering the lid, the ’90s beauty fave is back at Dior super sparkly blue eyes were achieved using liquid latex. Even lashes were dyed to match with a coat of neon mascara at Christian Dior. Before applying glitter to your lids, sweep on a little Vaseline so it has something to stick to at Christian Dior. For a punk-inspired approach to blue eyes pick up a gel liner to draw a sleek flick across the eyelids. We like Mac’s Chromaline in marine blue at Kenzo.
- Invisible brows are trending too, as makeup artists at everywhere from Alexander Wang to McQueen reached for bleach, no matter what their models’ natural hair colour at Alexander McQueen. For a fashion-forward effect, contrast your barely-there brows with a sweep of tonal eyeshadow at Alexander Wang. For a short-term alternative to bleached brows, use powder or a cream concealer to blend them in with your skin tone at Givenchy.
- Graphic Liner, Get perfecting those cat eye flicks as eyeliner is back and more experimental than you’ve seen before at Rag & Bone.Try stippling liner above a fine flick of line of liquid for an alternative to smokey liner at Lanvin. To nail a thicker more graphic look, draw your outline first – extending it from the inner corner, then fill in the shape afterwards at Dries Van Noten. Anything goes for this trend, so get creative with application. Try using string to create colourful strokes at Anthony Vaccarello.
- Morning-After Liner, Go grunge for Autumn/Winter with matte skin and smokey eyes at Topshop Unique. Blitzed, poker-straight hair will complement this ’90s inspired beauty look, a treat at Tom Ford. Be sure to line the inside of your lids too, to really let your smokey eyes talk at Roberto Cavalli. For a subtler approach use a brown liner rather than black at Thakoon. This season’s trend for colourful peepers is perfect for party season. Choose from matte or go for look-at-me glitter, if you dare at Christian Dior.
- Molten Metallics, This season’s luxest beauty trend? Metallics swept over the eyelids, cheeks, or even he lips. Anything goes as long as it sparkles at Donna Karan. For brighter looking, wide-awake eyes, blot a a curve of gold shadow around the edge of the tear duct at Alexander McQueen. For a fahsion-forward spin, extend your shadow right from the outside of the tear duct to the edge of the brow bone at Donna Karan. Mac’s 3D glitter is great for a modest approach to sparkles, as it creates an almost sheer effect. Pair with a barely-there lip colour for a grown-up approach to metallics at Altuzurra. —Glamour.
