Beauty Trends and Tricks To Try This Autumn

A change of season not only means a change of weather, it also means an exciting change of beauty trends and products. There are new looks as well as different colours and textures to play around with in Autumn. Gone are the days of minimal and barely there makeup. New York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 19/20 was all about big expression, making a statement and being a strong individual.

Whether it be hair, makeup, nails or skin, we’ve got you covered for 2019 Autumn's beauty trends. Translating the runway styles into everyday looks for you to wear.

Autumn hair

Hair for Autumn is the total opposite of Summer. Ditch those salt sprays and beach waves, it’s all about the glossy blow dry this season. (If you’ve been eyeing off that new hair dryer, now is the time to make the splurge). Luscious, quality locks were present throughout the runways in New York with long waves bouncing from show to show.

If wearing your hair back is more your style, a messy up do will keep you on trend this season. Think hair tied up in knots, twisted buns and long, long Viking esque plaits.

Product tips:

Keep your hair healthy with a HASK Argan Hot Oil Hair Treatment.

Use the KRISTIN ESS Style Assist Blow Dry Mist to add shine and glisten.

If you’ve lost that shine during the salty, summer months, pop into your local hair salon to get a fresh cut and a treatment to restore health to your hair.

Makeup trends

Lips

Store your pastels away for next season. Your lips should be powerful and bright this Autumn. Make a bold statement with a matte red for night. For day, keep them simple. Just a touch of subtle, sorbet gloss will do.  

To create the perfect matte lip:

  1. Exfoliate your lips using a lip scrub. If you don’t own a lip scrub you can use an exfoliating sponge.

  2. Always apply a lip balm before anything else.

  3. Next, use a lip liner to create your perfect lip line.

  4. Fill your lips in with your chosen lipstick. If applying lipstick isn’t your forte use a lipstick.

Eyes

There were lots of bright, neon coloured eyes in the fashion shows. From bright orange, electric blue to popping greens. But remember, if you’re opting for a colour pop on your eyelids, go for a soft, pale gloss on the lips.

If a bright colour isn’t for you, awaken your eyes with a white, light shadow in the inner corners of your eyes. The application couldn’t be simpler. Apply the shadow with a small brush and blend it in slightly.

To achieve these looks try:

NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette in “Brights”
Models Prefer Professional Eye Crease Brush
Revlon Crease Shadow Brush
Bourjois Smoky Stories Quad Eyeshadow in “Grey and Night”

For the lashes

Long, dark eyelashes were present everywhere. Thick eyelashes with coats of mascara adorn the lashes of models this season. To achieve this look, choose a volume boosting mascara like Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara.

Face

Instead of a heavily matte focused foundation, it’s all about moisturising and priming the skin. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! The skin should be prepped and primed well to allow your foundation to glide on and give a healthy, radiant look. You want to be glowing as you walk the brisk streets this Autumn.

For the face, try these Natio products:
Natio Antioxidant Face Moisturiser

Natio Ageless Illuminating Primer

Nail colours

Deep, darker colours such as a gorgeous plum or a burgundy should be coated on your nails this season.

Our pick is Rimmel 60 Seconds Super Shine Nail Polish in ‘Black Cherries’ from Priceline. If you’d rather leave it to the professionals, head to one of our nail salons.

Tip: You may notice your cuticles become dry in the cooler weather. Now is a great time to invest in a cuticle cream.

Glitter everywhere

When we say glitter was everywhere at the shows, we really do mean it. Glitter eyelids, glitter mascara, glitter lips, glitter on the face. (You get the idea).

Translating this look into an everyday style is possible! Try out an eye glitter liner for an understated, but equally as special look.

For night, dare to try a full glitter lip, or even a full glitter eyelid. Just choose one though, unless you are going for a dramatic look.

Tips for glitter:

If you’re going to try the glitter look, make sure you apply a base make up first. This will ensure the glitter sticks! To keep the glitter in place, a setting product is a must.

Hydrating Skin tips for Autumn

While we wouldn’t say this is a ‘trend’ as such, it's importance is definitely seasonal. Taking care of your skin in Autumn is going to be different to how you care for your skin in Summer. The cooler weather can mean dryer, flaky skin from the cold air.

To keep your skin healthy in Autumn, it can be a good idea to pack away the fruity gels, and opt for a milky, nourishing shower cream. The same goes for your face as well. If you need to reassess your facial cleanser, do so. It's also important to remember that even though the weather is getting colder, you still need to remember a daily sunscreen.

For your skin try:

Palmolive Naturals Milk & Honey Shower Milk

Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer Fluid Sunscreen SPF50
