WHAT TO EXPECT IN BEAUTY A/W16

- Beauty Lowdown -

Whether we like it or not, we are already in August and winter beauty is quickly approaching. We personally love everything about fashion and beauty in the colder months and can’t wait to see what trends this winter holds!

Doll-Like Makeup

Tom Pecheux created this doll-inspired makeup for Chanel’s AW16 runway. Everything about this look just screams classic Chanel. The emphasis is on the eyes, making them look as big as possible. You can expect the white shadow and false lash look to be re-created throughout the season. 
 

Hair Accessories

Hair accessories are back in a big way! Think everything from Blair Waldorf bands to Parisian inspired clasps. The half-up-half-down styles at Christian Dior were accessorized with minimal golden barrettes.

Low Ponytails

The hairstyle of the season is definitely low ponytails, as seen on the majority of big runways. James Pecis was responsible for this tousled pony seen on the Giambattista Valli show. Get the look at home by creating messy tousled waves with a curling wand, or just plaiting your hair and leaving overnight. 

 

Gold Graphic Liner

Forget about everything soft and smokey, this season is all about bold and graphic. At the Christian Dior show makeup artist Peter Philips emphasised the eyes creating this stark gold liner. Keep the look wearable by leaving the rest of your face natural.   

Dark Glitter Lip

A staple of the colder months, the dark lip got a makeover this season by adding glitter. And who can say no to glitter? Get the look by adding a glitter pigment over your crimson lip, and keep the rest of the face as bare as possible to keep the look fresh.
