Now that summer is over, there is a back-to-school feeling in the air and the traffic is busy again in the mornings; let’s take a look at 4 of the top makeup trends you should be channelling this autumn.
1. Matte Red Lipstick
A statement red lip, especially in a textured matte, is an absolute fail safe for a sophisticated autumn look. It was a firm favourite on the autumn/winter catwalks and was generally paired with either a polished skin or a sharp winged eye. Whatever way you wear it, wear it bold.

2. Neon Eyes
While the bright, cheery colours of summer might be behind us, the catwalks for autumn/winter saw flashes of colour brighten the eyes. Pop a little neon into the inner corners to brighten the eyes.

3. Dewy, Post-Facial Glow
Fresh-faced, barely-there makeup saw a revival at many shows this season including Stella McCartney and Isabel Marant, a sign that the natural beauty boom is making a comeback. Neutral eye shades, sometimes with a delicate smoky finish, were paired with a nude or brown lip, giving a soft, monotone palette that oozed understated elegance.

4. Graphic Lashes
We saw the spotlight fall on lashes at the fashion shows this season. Dramatic, artistic lashes – Twiggy-style – are making a comeback. The trick is to keep it cool and sophisticated and not doll-like. A good kohl pencil and rich black mascara are the must-have tools to pull off this look with aplomb.
