beauty trends for winter

beauty trends for autumn

Following on from my earlier post about Nail Colours for AW 2014 - today we’re talking about the beauty world. Taking a look at what was hot back on the catwalks in February we can draw a lot of inspiration for what will be coming our way come winter. Hints of metallic, electric shades and that model glow from within here are all the trends coming this season…

70’s Browns

This summer 90's trended but AW14 is all about the 70's. Think over the top shadows with matching lip, think folky inspired neutral brown shades. Call it the American Hustle effect. Bronzed skin, dewy bases and bushy brows are back. Nudes, taupes and greys are key shades.

Lashing Out

Lashes are coming back in a big way so watch out for the latest mascara and eyelashes launches. That wide eyed doll like look is going to be huge… but watch out for spider lashes!

Glow It

I feel this was really popular in the summer as well, but flawless blowy skin is big once again. Flawless glowing from within skin and fresh cheeks with the help of a bit of blusher. Better start ramping up the skincare - Shame we can’t all have a model like skin.

The New Neons

My favourite show for makeup from NYFW was Kenzo. That flash of electric blue liner was enough to send me over the edge. I tried to make it work for me, but I just couldn’t. However, anything ultra bright on the eyes is a fun way to add colour into a look and surprisingly wearable! Try it!


  1. I'm a big fan of glowing skin, it works much better for me than a matte finish

  11. Personally, all the trends you have just listed are not suited to my taste at all, overly extenuated brows just look as if individuals faces have two large slugs on them, bold lashes get in the way of others seeing your beautiful and bright eyes, Thirdly, neon should really die a death, I mean, there is hardly anyone that can really pull it off, possibly, those within the fashion industry if they are doing dramatic makeup but aside from that, just no. Also, how is how skin suppose to be "blowwy" if its winter and the weather is against us and determined to make our skin dry and sensitive. I know this may sound like a horrible comment, but lilly, its NOTHING against you, just the trends that are in! Just a little disclaimer incase anyone gets the wrong idea. Regardless, your hair is flawless in this photo and I applaud you for the effort you have been putting into your blogs and youtube channels! Have a lovely morning :) xxx

  12. I used to be afraid of glitter on the face, but I've really been trying to highlight and get a nice glow going. I think it will look stunning in the upcoming summer where I live.

  13. I don't know how I feel about dewy skin.. I'm such a devote matte skin lover that I just can't enjoy a dewy finish.. I will give it a go though!
