Hot makeup trends for A/W 2013

We’ve just had London Fashion Week showcasing the looks for S/S14. However we’re just getting used to it being September, and watching our tans rapidly fade!

If you feel that you need a bit more coverage (I’m talking about your complexion not your clothing…) then here is a quick guide to A/W makeup trends that you can apply that will add that extra oomph to your usual beauty routine.

The base: BB creams

BB creams… those beauty balms just keep on coming, offering the best combination of makeup and skincare. Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream promises ‘beautiful skin with a perfect complexion in one simple step’.

What could be simpler?

Anti shine

The complexion for A/W13 is flawless and matte. Instead of blotting with a powder, try the new kid on the block Maybelline’s Fit Me Anti Shine stick foundation to achieve the perfect finish.

The brows

Right now, bold is definitely beautiful. Cara Delevingne, the model of the moment, is here to stay – and so are her brows! So fill in the blanks with Rimmel’s Professional eyebrow pencil.

The feline flick

Dolce & Gabanna showcased the feline flick for A/W13. Make this makeup trend easier by using a gel liner (a steady hand is essential). Retouch mishaps with an earbud dabbed on a cleansing wipe.

Lick those lips

Wine-stained hues are all the rage, from burgundy through to plum. This Rimmel lasting finish matte lipstick by Kate Moss in shade 111 is perfect. Well if it’s good enough for Kate…
