Autumn Beauty Trends

Autumn is almost upon us which means it’s time to shake-up our beauty routines. Whilst we’ve already made the transition from summer dresses to autumn knits, it’s time to sit back and take stock of the key AW17 beauty trends. From perfectly imperfect lips to bold eyeliner and rose tinted beauty – this season is all about the unexpected. Discover 10 of the major hair and autumn beauty trends you can expect to see both on and off the catwalk.

imperfect lips

imperfect lips

If you (like us) struggle to keep your lipstick looking flawless all day, take stock! It turns out that imperfect-looking lips were being painstakingly created backstage at the AW17 fashion shows. At Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Val Garland claimed that ‘just-snogged’ lips were the inspiration for the smeared pouts whilst diffused edges were also on display ar Temperley London, Topshop Unique and Monse.

Whilst you may think that bold, bright and colourful eyeliner is SO 90’s, this unique trend dominated the AW17 catwalks at all four fashion weeks, taking hold in Milan. At Prada, black smudgey eyes were topped with flashes of colourful hues whilst Versace drew great swoops from the inner corners of the eyes to the temples.

We’ve all heard of ‘no makeup makeup’ but this season, there’s a twist. For AW17, the look has evolved into something more sophisticated. Whilst previously we have heard the look described as ‘bare’, ‘raw’ and ‘simple’ – this season, it’s all about those finishing touches. So, whether you’re taking inspiration from Lanvin, Isabel Marant or Max Mara be sure to add subtle definition, curled lashes and impeccably groomed brows to your autumn beauty routine.

Utterly modern yet completely wearable, this trend dominated the makeup looks from H&M, Oscar de la Renta and Temperley London.

This autumn/winter there’s no middle ground. While minimalist graced many-a-runway, a delightful lash-look took hold at MSGM. Think doll-like, bold, sixties-inspired lashes. For a more subtle look, you can take inspiration from the thick, ‘slept-in’ lashes showcased at Topshop Unique.

straight and sleek hair

Forget volume and bouncy blow-dries, pin-straight, high-shine hair is the new style. At Topshop Unique, Duffy cited the nineties as his inspiration (think Rachel Green, Alicia Silverstone and Gwyneth Paltrow) whilst Mary Katrantzou and Emilia Wickstead saw models sporting similarly sleek styles.
