2018 is the year of the woman. With the 100 year anniversary of women winning the right to vote and the #metoo campaign gaining traction, women everywhere are gaining a voice. And funnily enough this has directly translated onto our fall make-up trends. Well why not, we use our mouths to speak so we need our lipstick to pack a punch. Our beauty editor has rounded up the hottest make-up trends from the Autumn/Winter 2018 catwalk shows and as you can see, it is all about empowerment.
Powerful pillar box red lips were on show at Brandon Maxwell, Rochas, Erdem and Alexander McQueen. There was no escaping the statement lip which screams power and confidence. The boldest reds on the market are MAC’s Ruby Woo and Kiko’s Velvet Passion.
IN A FLUTTER
At Givenchy, Valentino and David Koma it was all about the eyes with lashes literally being caked in mascara. Think more is more here ladies, not the usual less is more. Elsewhere, classic Sixties eyes with flicks were seen backstage at both Moschino and Anna Sui.
Bright coloured eyeshadows were the order of the day at Marni, Dior and Prada. The hottest colours this fall are paintbox yellow, green and pink. Dior also applied coloured eyeliner in red, yellow and pink to match their sunglass range.
Scraped back ponytails and topknots were on show at Chanel, twists were favoured at Philosophy and chignons at Merchant Archive. These sleek up do’s definitely display a “don’t mess with me” kind of attitude.
