A/W 13 Beauty Trends

I am a big fan of black eyeliner in all forms, whether it be gel, liquid, kohl or whatever, I am there. There is always a re-invention of the classic, slick black flick over fashion week and A/W 13 is no exception.

If you fancy trying something a bit different but not too extreme, follow suit with Rag and Bone and go for a simple line just about the eyelid crease with a flick.

Anna Sui went all out with their sixties influenced eyes, with a heavy cat eye flick accompanied by exaggerated lashes on the lower lid. This might be better suited to a night out than an every day look!

Proenza Schouler plumped for the classic. A subtle and neat line focused on the outer lid, this is perfect for every day paired with a lip stain or tint.

I mentioned them in a previous post but I'd recommend the Lord and Berry waterproof eyeliners for these, they're a good price point and they stay put longer than you will!

A bright lip is my go to for a night out, I rarely wear lip colour during the day (usually just trusty tinted Vaseline) so adding it to my usual look for a night out makes me feel like I've made an effort!

Diane Von Furstenburg went for super girly pink which you should be able to pull off with any skin tone, either tone it down or ramp it up depending on your colouring, experiment and make it work for you! I use MAC Girl About Town to get this look, it's a great lipstick and feels lovely.

A red lip equals instant glamour, and Marc by Marc Jacobs did it amazingly well for next season. It's rich, glossy and draws your attention straight to the lips. Top marks from me Marc!

This one's not for the faint hearted but copying the dark purple of Fendi should be encouraged! This colour would look amazing on brunettes, if you fancy trying out this look, buy a cheap-y lipstick to try it out before investing. Try before you buy!
A lot of the looks for A/W 13 are all about the bare faced, dewy complexion, even the looks with striking features are paired with a beautifully plain complexion.

Burberry, Calvin Klein and Christopher Kane got this barely there look down. To bring a little more to the look, emphasise your brows like Christoper Kane to draw attention to your eyes.

I use Benefit Hello Flawless foundation to get a clear, even and slightly dewy look, I'd thoroughly recommend it!
It's all about the statement eyes next season, quite a few brands opted for quite a bruised look too which could be interesting to try and replicate without getting asked odd questions by guys at the office who hadn't seen the Altuzurra show.

I love the metallic purple used for Jason Wu and may have to sample a little purple myself...
