As we begin planning our autumn/winter outfits, it’s only natural that we turn to autumnal makeup trends that will see us through to winter. While it’s still technically summertime, the new season is fast approaching. We’re already seeing people wear some seriously chic autumn/winter makeup trends and if you are seeking some beauty inspiration, then you are in the right place.
While in summertime we tend to lean towards lightweight formulations and melt-proof makeup (no thanks to the several heatwaves this year), autumn and winter really pave the way for experimentation in your makeup bag. Your skin may favour a heavier, skin-nourishing base as the weather turns (with no risk it sweating off), and who doesn’t adore wearing a glistening eyeshadow as we head into the party season? For me, I’m most excited to default into my uniform of a roll-neck knit paired with a statement lipstick now that the temperatures are beginning to dip.
To guide us through the key autumn/winter makeup trends, I spoke to expert makeup-artists Lan Nguyen-Grealis and Ruby Hammer who talked me through the best makeup trends to try, and the most coveted products to achieve the looks. Plus, not only are they are so easy to recreate, but they will make instantly update your look as we head into the new season. From the smokey siren eye to statement French lipstick, there’s plenty of inspiration ahead.
