CHANGING OF SEASONS: Autumn Runway Make Up Trends

Happy hump day everyone! 

Today marks the official first day of Autumn, so with that in mind, we decided to share our favourite A/W 15 make up trends taken inspiration straight from the runway for today's post. From statement lips to dramatic eyes we cannot wait to try these looks out this season. 

Statement Lip - Burberry
When we saw this statement lip look on the Burberry S/S 16 runway we were excited by the thought of experimenting with a darker lip colour over the colder months. In our eyes, Autumn and Winter months are the perfect times to don a berry lip. For this look Burberry used their 'Oxblood' lipstick, but for a high street duplicate, (and huge fans of this brand) we love this MAC lip colour in 'Diva'. As this colour lip is so on trend you'll be able to find lots of cheaper alternatives, like Rimmel's 'Starry Eyed'.

MAC 'Diva'- £15.50

Smoky Eye - DVF
We always find ourselves creating lighter make up looks during summer time and experimenting more with our make up during the Winter months. When we saw this make up look on DVF's A/W 15 runway show we had to include it. This bold smoky eye adds a dramatic feel to the otherwise minimal make up look, but you can create a more subtle look at home, depending on your style. The recently launched Urban Decay Smoky Palette would be perfect to create your smoky eye, with it's range of colours. A cheaper alternative would be the Collection Uncovered palette in grey as it has some earthy tones in there too (unfortunately this product is only UK based). 

Long Lashes - Giambattista Valli
 Long, doll like lashes were seen at Giambattista Valli's A/W 15 show earlier this year. We love the natural simplicity of this look, with a nod to 60s chic (think Twiggy!) too. Use a lengthening mascara with several applications to create a full, long lash-line without having to fuss around with false lashes. This Estée Lauder 'Sumptuous Infinite' mascara offers both length and volume perfect to recreate this catwalk look, but for a drugstore price, the Maybelline Lash Sensational is the perfect dupe.

Flushed Cheeks - Topshop Unique
Natural and 'outdoorsy' beauty was the inspiration behind Topshop Unique's A/W 15 catwalk look, with flushed cheeks and lips being the main attraction. With "handsome and well-bred" being the signature, creme blush was used dabbed onto the cheeks to create this rosy look. Beauty editor favourite, Topshop's own creme blush in 'Head Over Heels' would be perfect to recreate this look, but if creme blush isn't for you, try out this Rimmel Lasting finish blush in the dusky tone 'Pink Rose'.  

We hope this post gives you some inspiration for new season beauty trends - straight from the runway! What're your favourite looks for the colder months? Let us know!
