Autumn/Winter 2015 Beauty Trends

Hey beauty cutie!

LOOK away, lipstick fanatics – eyes are the focus for autumn/winter 2015. From liquid latex applied to the lids at Dior to extra-long false lashes at Rochas and Gucci, make-up artists determinedly turned their attention to eye make-up when creating the season’s catwalk beauty looks.

Of course the ever-present natural look remained popular, but this time with either a healthy, sporty vibe – partnered with naturally wavy, tousled hair – or with clever sculpting and definition for a perfected take on the bare-faced look. For hair, ballerina buns returned to the spotlight, whilst cornrows made an unexpected appearance at Alexander McQueen, Marchesa and DKNY.

Extra-long false lashes gave models a doll-like prettiness at Versace, Rochas and Gucci, whilst clumpy, clogged mascara was used to rebellious effect at Prada and Topshop Unique.

Plaits

Alexander McQueen Cornrows – yes, cornrows – were whipped up backstage at Alexander McQueen, Marchesa and DKNY, whilst knotted plaits provided an urban edge at Givenchy and Simone Rocha.

Diane von Furstenberg, The Ballets Russes provided the inspiration at Diane von Furstenberg, with hair worn in ballerina buns and faces illuminated with shades of nude, lilac and taupe. Off-duty dancer hair was also present at Prada, Altuzarra and Erdem, with hair scraped back into insouciantly elegant DIY chignons.

Blue eye make-up was not a one-season wonder, it turns out – it returned for autumn in shades of sapphire, azure, cerulean and cobalt at shows from Dior to Kenzo.- it’s certainly not a season to be afraid of colour. And, while we’re on the topic of colour, Chanel created a rainbow of eyeliner flicks for its supermarket-themed show, with fuchsia, lime, teal and orange all present and correct.
