Sultry, sexy or swinging sixties? Our favourite autumn make-up trends

Make-Up for Autumn

As with every season, our autumn make-up trends were decided for us long ago by the powers of the catwalk. We’ve got some bad news for all you lipstick lovers out there, this autumn is all about the eyes; 60’s eyes, sultry eyes, smoky eyes (that goes without saying) and luscious lashes; lips have been stripped right down to nudes.

As reworking your look to stay on trend can seem daunting, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite products so you can try out these key seasonal looks yourself!

Clear lipgloss

Clear lipgloss should be a staple in every girl’s make-up bag, especially in the colder months. It transforms your (most likely) dry lips into shimmering, healthy-looking, must have beauties.

Nude lipstick

Complete your look with the perfect natural glow, in the form of a nude lip shade. It adds warmth to your chosen look and is ultimately, universally flattering.
