Fall/Winter 2012 Makeup Trends

Hello girls :)
I know I know, it's been quite a long ... 
Even though it's mid-summer, there are some makeup -trend- ideas for the upcoming fall/winter 2011-2012. 

Sales are right now at their peak, so why miss something (reduced in price) you might need in the fall ? 

Check these makeup trends...

Overall, the basic idea is... Nudity 
Pinky-nude lips, barely there makeup.

1. Nude lips, literally 
Alexander MQueen, Burberry, Valentino, Chanel catwalks made a statement by leaving models' lips bare/colorless.

2. Boyish Brows : Not my favorite... Forget these skinny, over-plucked eyebrows. 
(i aggree). This fall it's all about full, natural (bushy), boyish brows. Not overly neat but not messy either. 

3. Bare face : 
Forget intense,bold coral/orange or pink blushers. This fall, these are a no no...
Just make sure you got a flawless face, using the right shade of foundation/tinted moisturizer/bb cream  and a good concealer. If you are oily, use some powder or if you are dry/normal skip this step. Looking natural is the key.

4. Clean/neat eyeliner & Double eyeliner
I know we are all used to smudging the eyeliner. This fall, it's all about simplicity and clean lines. Looks like a retro look. 

5. Brown-toned/beige eyeshadow

For a polished look, just dust some medium toned brown or beige matte/satin eyeshadow on both upper and lower lid. Don't use too shimmery shadows. This step gives this sultry deeper look.

My fall/winter trend picks

1. Jemma Kidd Light as air foundation / Skin79 BB cream (review coming soon)
2. Jane Iredale Dark Suede & Cappuccino  
3.Korres Guava lip balm (GR & UK/US)
4. Nyx concealer 

I really like this trend and I am definitely going to try it. 
Natural is the best look ;)
Are you keeping your make up bare/minimal this fall ?

  5. Το αστείο(;) είναι ότι για να φτιάξεις αυτό το τέλειο nude πρόσωπο χρειάζεσαι πολλά περισσότερα προϊόντα και χρόνο! Αλλά αξίζει νομίζω.

  6. @natalie yes it's so true! it's much more difficult to have a perfect "bare" face , i really love this trend though!
