When it comes down to Fashion Week, the industry and its disciples come together to witness a new set of trends and brilliance in (obviously,) fashion. But if you are a beauty junkie like us, you’ll know – it is hard not to focus on the show that happens right above the shoulders. Take inspiration from the fall runway for the looks to wear if you’re feeling like you’re in need of a little oomph for your make up game today.
1. Glitter Lids
When was glitter not at the top of the list of beauty trends? The answer is never. The couture runways literally channelled art on the lids with bold decorations such as gold foils and jewel studs right down to packing thick layers of opulent glitter on the models’ eyes. Let your eyes take centre stage and keep the rest of your make up minimal for this look. Work around with a lightweight water-based foundation like the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation and don’t forget to match your shimmer with some Fenty Beauty highlighter.

2. Pop of Colour
Forget regular black/brown eyeliners, brighten up your eyes with a pop of colour like the models at Jason Wu. This avant-garde beauty look is creative and fun, economical too because now you can double your eyeshadow palettes as eyeliners. If you’re adventurous enough, go for Urban Decay’s distortion palette for some fun and wild colours. Otherwise, opt for a good ol’ natural hue from the Naked Heat palette of the same brand. The trick is to use a damp flat makeup brush to line your eyes. Make sure to keep your base makeup matte for the colours to pop and top it up with a complementary lip colour and you are good to go!

3. Power Pout
A red lip is nothing short of a powerful statement. From Bottega Veneta to Jonathan Simkhai’s Fall/Winter 2018 shows, models strut the stage with perfectly lined red lips with a hint of highlighter dashed across the cupid’s bow. Balance the statement lip with lashings of Hypnose volume mascara from Lancome, throw on a natural brow and keep your glo’ on with Sisley’s brightening Cushion foundation to set the stage for the lips to shine. Of course, pick the best shade of red to suit your skin tone from the options that we’ve laid out below for you.
