A classic autumn/winter trend that’s so versatile it can be worn for all occasions: the Berry lip. For a dramatic night time look, go for a dark, almost black matte lipstick, something that has been seen all over the catwalk this season. Keep lips moisturised for a smoother look and use a lip liner for clean, defined lines to keep the lipstick in place all day. During the day time, try a stain that is applied with your finger for a more wearable and natural look. Use a lighter berry colour or even a brick red stain to maintain this trend even when you’re out and about.
Try – Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain in Romantic or MAC Lipstick in Diva.
Bed head hair
What a wonderful trend for lazy girls alike. Aim for super natural waves to achieve this look by letting your hair dry naturally or putting it in a loose plait before you go to bed.
“Experiment with a texturizing or sea salt spray: think big and mane-like but simple to create styles. ‘I woke up like this’ look, literally”
Try to amp up the volume and the texture by using a dry shampoo to give lift at the roots and add a small amount of backcombing at the crown of your head if necessary.
Try – Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturizing Spray
Similarly, like the berry lips, this look is can easily be worn from day to night. During the day, use a black pencil to line your upper lash line then blend it out using a small eyeliner brush or your finger for a super quick and simple smoky eye.
For a bolder look, use a kohl pencil to line both your upper and lower lash line, blending this out using a small eyeshadow brush and a black eyeshadow. On the other hand, try using a plum or gold eyeshadow to blend with for a muted pop of colour.
Try – Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit in Sumptuous Gold or Lavish Onyx
Experimental Hair colour
This trend is all about trying something new and bold. A really popular current look is an icy blonde, almost white hue. To add a pop of colour, try fading the blonde into a pastel pink or blue to really nail this look. Going to another extreme, why not try a rich, fiery ginger that has been spotted all over the catwalk?
Something as simple as letting your dark roots grow out will achieve a cheaper version of this look. Whatever your preference, just stay away from ‘natural’ colours this season. For something less permanent, try L’Oréal’s new Hair Chalk in eight different shades to get an idea of what suits you best.
