Beauty: New Looks
Autumn has arrived: time to switch up your beauty regime. MUA Phoebe Ann Brooks, of Cambridge’s John Lewis & Partners Beauty Studio, shows us how to create two of the new season’s coolest looks
Look #1: Glowing skin and smokey eye
Model: Natalie Wright
Becca Be A Light Palette
Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Star Gold
Chanel Hydra Beauty Essence Mist
Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder Matte Lipcolour in 978
This season aim for dewy, hydrated, buttery skin. This look is the more subtle sister trend to the high-shine, glossy complexion we saw in the summer.
To achieve this with Natalie, I prepped and set the look with the Chanel Hydra Beauty Essence Mist.
Another necessity for creating subtly glowing skin that reflects and sings in the sun is the Becca Be A Light palette, a quad of finely milled illuminating powers including highlight, bronzer, contour, and blush.
This trend allows the complexion to be a feature all of its own, so I’ve paired the look with a smokey eye in autumnal tones, topped with Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Star Gold to add a rich depth of creamy colour on the lid.
Look #2: Graphic liner and matte red lip
Model: Layla Panam
MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline Eyeliner in BlackTrack
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Dance With Me
This look is one for the perfectionists! Graphic liner is back with its minimalist yet striking affect. I’ve created a simple long-line flick with this look but this trend allows for so much creativity, so have a practice and definitely play it up.
I’ve used the Mac BlackTrack eyeliner because it gives such a smooth application with a velvety, black, matte finish that lasts all night long.
Pair this feature with plenty of mascara and a statement lip for a bold dramatic look, perfect for any occasion this season.
Autumn always brings with it a reason for richer, solid colours on the lip being that the heat won’t disrupt the wearability of it.
Make way for red wine burgundy shades in velvet matte formulas. With this look make sure you line the lip so that the application not only sticks around, but so you can achieve the perfect definition.
