The approaching new season doesn’t only mean a swag of new fashion trends to covet, but also new beauty trends, to transform our bronzed summer faces into more autumnal ones. So last week I took a look at Jane Iredale‘s new collection for AW15, as well as hearing all about the trends to expect this coming season.
Firstly – skin is very much still in.
Bright, clean and luminescent were the words we were hearing a lot of. Skin is radiant and looks fresh and youthful, which is achieved not only through skincare and makeup, but also those other things we sometimes take for granted – drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep and overall leading a healthy lifestyle. The types of products to be used here include primers, serums, moisturisers and BB/CC Creams for hydration, and highlighters/contours for creating sheen and shape.
I think this clean, made-under look links back to the normcore trend we saw emerge last year. It’s all about stripping things back to the basics, not wanting to look too made up, or caked in heavy foundation. Makes sense, right?
An extension of this clear skin trend can also be seen for nails. They’re becoming more bare as well, with perhaps just a touch of metallic, rather than an all-over colour.
Next – eyebrows. They still feature heavily in 2015 beauty forecasts, but the shape is more classic (with a natural arch above the pupil and an even thickness from start to end) than the dead-straight brows we started seeing last year. Products you’ll need to master your brows include pencils, wax and shadow for filling in any gaps, and brow setting gels to make them stay.
Hair is simple and chic, to work back with the fresh skin. Buns, ponytails or slightly dishevelled braids are set to dominate.
When it comes to the eyes, metallic looks are a major trend of the new season. Try using a copper or bronze cream or shadow as part of your smoky eye, for a sophisticated, downtown vibe (as seen below, using the new limited edition Jane Iredale ‘Getaway’ eyeshadow kit, and Gel eyeliner).
There’s also a move towards an almost slept-in look for eye makeup, if you can master your blending and liners! But if you prefer something lighter, try the classic ‘English Rose’ look, using peachy tones, and lip and cheek stains to achieve it. A great beauty look for day, on almost any skin type.
