mute/unmute

The Autumn/Winter 2019 runways were awash with beauty inspiration, and this season’s makeup mood makes impact look easy. Whether it’s a metallic eye or a deepest berry lip, natural skin with modern feature play rules. Take on our top looks for your route into the trends.

A double dose of violet on eyes and lips is a flattering way to do colour that might surprise you. Buff both shades of NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Kuala Lumpur into the top lid only, right up to the eyebrow, and pair with bare lashes and a swipe of Sisley Le Phyto Rouge Lipstick in 26 Granada on lips.

Replay ‘90s supermodel makeup with defined eyes and lips in suits-all earthy neutrals. Priming the eye area is the trick – we used Laura Mercier Eye Basics. Follow with a graduation of NARS Loaded Eyeshadow Palette through the top lid, opening up the eye, and prep lips with a dab of concealer and liner to cheat a perfect pout.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner to create an elegant line, hovering away from the lashline – move it around to play with your facial architecture. A naked lash and a dab of balm on lips keeps the look fresh.

Everyone should have a smoked-out eye in their bag, and this modern take packs real power. Start with gel liner along the lash line then blend Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Espresso and Hourglass Graphik Palette in Ravine, creating an oval shape. Less vampish, more dolly. A perfect pink gloss finishes it off.

The new berry lip is flying solo, worn with glowing naked skin for a modern zero-effort effect. We created a full pout by applying Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colour in Brocade straight from the bullet, right into the edges of the lip. Skin prep is key here – massage Chantecaille Rose de Mai Face Oil in an upwards motion and add brushed up brows.

Tap the golden age of disco for party-ready impact. Buffed through the temples to the hairline, a deep sweep of ocean blue and green shadow elongates eyes. Mascara is non-negotiable for definition. Just finish with an almost-nude colour on lips and loose curls, boosted at the root.

The trick for grown up glitter? Take a painterly approach. This season’s glitter eye is all about its subtlety. Leave your lids bare close to the lash line and scatter above the crease, using different colours to create light and shadow. Add a touch of sparkle to the lower lash line and a lightly tinted balm, pressed into lips.

It’s time to look beyond black, as eyeliner gets a graphic update in futuristic silver. Extend yours across the lid with a double swipe though the temples for a striking yet understated eye look. We spritzed water into SISLEY Phyto-Ombre Glow and applied with a fine brush, pairing with boyish, brushed up brows and slick hair.
