Autumn 2012 Make up Trends

A change in seasons means the introduction of new make-up trends!
I am a big fan of finding out the new trends for cosmetics which are generally born out of fashion week!
Now we are all aware of the way fashion week works - the start of spring gives us Autumn/ Winter trends and vise versa and with London Fashion Week coming to a close I've decided to take a look back to last fashion week and have a look at the make up trends!

So without further ado!

Berry Lips

This is a trend that rolls round year after year and 2012 has been no exception.
When aiming for your perfect berry lip the idea is to make your lips appear as if you've just bitten into a bunch of blackberries.
I love the look and think it look fantastic on light and dark skin tones.
The contrast on a pale face make you look super sophisticated and on trend where as berry lips on a darker skinned person adds a subtle hint of glamour.

Multi-Toned Eyes

This futuristic look adds a different dimension to eye make up looks than the usual smokey eye.
Its the new way to do glamorous eye make up and finally allows that bit of adventure into out make up bags!
Jason Wu used emerald green as the main colour for this make up look on his catwalk this season.

Fresh & Natural

This is another look we see year after year throughout each season.
However the look for Autumn features more on 'the English rose' look. Flawless skin and a flush of colour to the cheeks. 
Whilst flushed cheeks are a sign of broken capillaries from cold weather a spot of blusher gives a much healthier look to the face.

Smokey Brown

This is a look that I have been wearing so much for the past few months and don't plan on stopping any time soon.
However I think I will incorporate some of the other new trends we are seeing in order to bring the look up to date and give it a new lease of life.
It is such a versatile trend and can be taken from day to night really easily.

The morning after make up

This trend looks pretty intimidating to me! 
It's based on the concept of not removing last night's make up and featured heavily on the runway with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Jean Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs. 
Whilst the run way look is not something I'd go for, a more of a smudged look on the lower lash line is the perfect compromise and I can't wait to try it out.

Vibrant eye liner

This is a trend we saw back in spring 2011.
It's back again with a vengeance!
Go for bold patterns in bold colour for a bang on trend look. I personally cant wait to try this look with blues and greens!

Which is your favourite make up look, and if any, which will you be trying out over the next 3 months?
