So, on to the competition…
Autumn / winter is of course the season for darker colours, I’m talking berry, wine and plum lips, bruised eyeshadows and pale skin. But is this this case for AW14? Read on to hear what I think…
So first up, I’m predicting metallic EVERYTHING! From eyes to skin to lips to nails, high shine metallic finishes will be everywhere, just you wait and see… 🙂
Also Graphic Eyes – think coloured eyeliners, crazy lines, smudging, morning after style eye makeup and anything that really makes a statement. Also blue eyeliner. You know I love a blue liner. If it’s not ‘a thing’ this AW I’ll eat my hat!
EXTREME brows! Either massive or invisible – no messing about, go full on Carla or cover them up completely, coz Carla is *so* hot right now, it’s gotta be a trend!
Natural flawless skin – now this is pretty standard, you wouldn’t want unflawless skin would you? I think a natural ‘no makeup’ look will be big too.
Contrasting lips – either deep wintery reds or completely natural, just like brows, go for full on or not at all for AW14.
And lastly Textured Hair – Winter hurr will be all about texture, wether is a la Chanel, with massive ponytails covered in amazing tweed dreads and pearls (or in my case maybe a budget version with tin foil and string??) Or go super sleek. Texture is key here peeps. Why the heck not! It’s FASHION!
So there we have my predictions, what do you think? Am I on the money or just a bit crazy? Lemme know what beauty looks you think will be big for AW14! xxx
