Beauty Trends For Autumn/Winter 2012

We know you’re dying to hear what’s hot this season for beauty. Drama queens and brave fashionistas, you’re in for a treat with these intense looks.


Starting with lips, you may be unsurprised to hear that bright red lips are still very in this autumn and winter. Whether they are matte or sticky gloss, it’s time to welcome the scarlet-lipped look and embrace your inner seductress. Have fun playing with different textures and shapes! Line your lips to get a full pout or blot your lipstick for a matte finish.

Horsey Girl

Who would have thought that ponytails would be having a moment this season? Ponytails with volume are especially hot, especially if you take a leaf out of Louis Vuitton’s book and pair them with a retro bowler hat! However, the sexy and sleek ponytail has to be a go-to whenever ponytails are in vogue. One way of making sure that your ponytail lasts the day is by using a texturizing spray.

Sandy Palettes

Otherwise known as ‘cashmink’ or a ‘nude construction’ by beauty experts, the neutral palette varying from sable to sand, is hot right now. Treat your eyes to a relaxed and naturally sexy look. The objective is to mirror the shaded eyes of sepia, 20s photographs. It’s completely wearable and a fresh alternative to caking on beauty products.

Hello, 90s

A hint of grunge is a great way to make an adorable outfit edgy. Leave the straighteners in their box and grunge-up your hair: no we don’t mean avoid showers for a week, but gently tease your hair into a carefree mess to get that London afterparty look.

Rebel Eyes

Eyeliner has a whole new way of thinking outside of the box. Get rid of classic templates and update your shape with raw, undone strokes, otherwise known as ‘dirty glamour.’ Think, ‘I tried to apply my eyeshadow on a bus’ – that’s the look.

Try smudging together kohl and cream liners for a dramatic effect. Alternatively, blend cream shadow along the lash line and apply silver to the corner of your eyes to give them that extra ‘pop.’

Classic Hairstyles

If grunge doesn’t seem like your thing, you can always fall back on chic, retro, ladylike dos. From Downton Abbey to The Paradise, we are absolutely hooked on costume dramas this autumn, so replicate their exquisite dos yourself. Play with modern twists on old favourites, such as the 60’s beehive and experiment with textures.

Graphic Eyes

This season is all about bold colours, whether that’s a bold shade, like pop art blue, or painted-on white. Gold is a fantastic option for gorgeous eyes, but you may find that a glitzy silver suits your complexion better.

Peacock eyes are the new smoky eyes, with the normal blacks, browns, and greys being swapped for greens, blues, and purples. Instead of traditional smoky eyes, try out different colours such as blood reds or oranges. Go as far as to colour your eyelashes with bright shades.
