Fashion Week Beauty: Makeup Trends to Try

The autumn/winter 2013 Fashion Weeks gave us plenty of new and exciting beauty inspiration to pop in the arsenal.

Read on for the key tips and trends from the makeup artists of the New York, London, Milan and Paris shows!

Elizabeth & James A/W 2013

Nearly Nude
Designers further embraced the ‘less is more’ trend this season, with simple, barely-there makeup finishes dominating the runways.

At Valentino , lips were left to look their natural best with just a touch of dusty pink, while at Chloe and Balmain a nude tinted lip and a bold brushed eyebrow added a subtle pop to the clean and clear complexions.

A luminous primer was used at Ralph Lauren for a delightful dewy glow that was fresh and radiant.

Metallic Eyes
Shimmer, sequins and bold metallics on lids and lashes made for some serious statement beauty.

Dior and Chanel paired their silver sparkle with blotted pink lips for a fairytale-inspired look, while over Jason Wu a simple block of silvery-blue made the the eyes really pop.

Gucci opted for a darker bronze eye, which was paired with flawless skin and a muted pink lip.

Better Be Burgundy
Bold brown lippy is not going anywhere!  For fall, Bottega Veneta teamed a deep red lip with super teased hair for an easy ‘40s glam vibe.

At Derek Lam and Lanvin minimal eye or face make-up made the lip a true focal point of the beauty look.

3.1 Phillip Lim teamed a brown lip with dark brows and long waves for pure chocolatey perfection!

Blackout
Dark eyeliner always seems to make itself known during the autumn, and 2013 is no exception.

Roberto Cavalli and Marc Jacobs worked a smoky smudge around the entire eye, while Anna Sui worked a more refined winged line on the lid.

Rag & Bone kept liner and mascara to a minim around the actual eye, choosing instead a bold sweep of black above the crease. Cool, chic and sophisticated with plenty of edge to boot.
