Beauty Makeup Trends 2015:
On The Waterline:
Roberto Cavalli Black eyeliner is always in style, but knowing where and how to wear it is key. For autumn/winter 2015, kohl was applied right onto the waterline – the area between the bottom lashes and the eye itself – for an instant cool-girl effect. At Lanvin, Versace and Erdem the liner was continued all around the eyes, whilst at Victoria Beckham and Roberto Cavalli it was diffused down through the lashes in a reverse smoky effect that looked entirely modern.
Lashings Of Lashes:
Mascara can feel like something of a dirty words backstage at the shows, where make-up artists often shun it in favour of the clean, stark look that bare lashes bring. This season it was back in a big way, with layer upon layer of mascara creating doll-like looks at Giambattista Valli, Nina Ricci, Blumarine and Alberta Ferretti.
The New Hair Up:
Limp, loose waves are set to be a thing of catwalks past, with hairstylists returning to proper up-dos for autumn/winter 2015. There were elegant chignons at Oscar de la Renta and ribbon-tied French twists at Chanel, whilst elegant buns at Balenciaga whispered of an almost couture-like sensibility. Many also came adorned with highly covetable accessories, the best of which were surely the jewelled clips pinning Guido Palau’s topknot ponytails in place at Prada.
The Return Of Lip Gloss:
As New York Fashion Week kicked off, we noticed something we hadn’t seen in a very long time – models sporting good, old-fashioned lip gloss. It made for high-shine pouts at Rag & Bone, Rodarte, Fendi and Roland Mouret, whilst it ventured onto the brows at Christopher Kane, the lids at Nina Ricci and even the cheeks at David Koma.
Overly filled brows are never a good look, but now the trend is moving toward the “feather brow,” seen at shows like Burberry, Elie Saab, and Giambattista Valli. The term refers to lightly filled arches that are brushed up and a bit wild … yet still groomed-looking. To copy the look, use quick and tiny strokes of a brow pencil to mimic brow hairs. Brush your brows up at the start and outward as you move toward the tail.
Flushed Pink Cheeks:
This season, push your contouring kit to the side. Instead, whip out your blush brush and a light pink cheek color, because it’s all about adding a pop of pink to the apples of your cheeks. The natural flush covered the runways at shows like Tibi, Jason Wu, BCBG, and Ralph Lauren, so you know it’s a thing.
Bold Red Lips:
A crimson pout never goes out of style, but the fact that this look popped up everywhere on the runways at fall shows like Dolce & Gabbana and Céline is proof that it’s more popular than ever.
Rich, Dark Lips:
Think ’90s all the way. This includes burgundy, brick, and deeply colored plums — shades all shown at shows like Marc Jacobs, Emanuel Ungaro, and Giles. Try Smashbox Cosmetics + Donald Robertson + Story Be Legendary Limited Edition Lipstick in Screen Queen Matte, a dark wine-colored lipstick.
Bronze Diffused Eye Shadow:
It’s the new smoky eye and calls for one shade only: bronze. To be on trend like the models at DVF, Nicole Miller, Tom Ford, and Cushnie et Ochs, apply it by blending the color seamlessly from the lash line up toward your brow, leaving no harsh lines at the crease of your eye.
Rose gold Eye Shadow – Metallic Accents:
Spice up your typical shadow look with a touch of metallic, similar to what was seen at Tadashi Shoji, Mara Hoffman, and Zac Posen.
