It’s always great to get yourself a fresh look when Fall / Winter arrives. The colder weather means more drama and detail in your make up – everything gets richer and colors are made deep and vibrant! As with the whole of 2017’s looks and trends, there is something for everyone, modern twists on classics of yesteryear and looks to suit every style – from super drama and ‘way out there’ to more subtle looks.
Lips remain extremely important this Fall / Winter, with an array of delicious, delightful, descriptive color ways, such as Ruby Red and Midnight Merlot, to tantalise the vamp in you. Don’t shake your head at me, we ALL have an inner vamp, learn to love it!
Metallics are huge as well, ‘grown up’ metallics that tread the line between little girl glitter and big girl sheen! And if it’s metallic that you are looking to cosy up to, go for BRONZE or GOLD!
As I said, it’s not all deep drama and attention grabbing metallics. Another way to be completely on trend is to hop on the nude bus. The nude trend that is! Subtle, but with up to the minute twists such as very glossy eyelids!
So, all you need to do to get right up to date with your make up is grab 1, 2, 3 or all of these. Easy-peasy, done!
