Beauty Trend: Plum Lips

A bold pout in a rich plum has been a key beauty trend for the AW season, seen on the runway for Dior (pictured above) and Marc Jacobs.

Eleanor’s Tip: As a master applicator, Eleanor recommends applying a plum lipstick to the middle finger and dabbing it onto the lip, so it appears as more of a stain. She also suggests prepping the lips with a lip liner to help set the colour and last longer.

Lulu Loves: To create this trend, Lulu loves Gerard Cosmetics Cherry Cordial Lipstick with it’s deep wine hue. Alternatively, if you prefer a shiny finish, we recommend a coating of Gerard Cosmetics Jewel Lip Gloss.

Beauty Trend: Bold Brows

Bold brows have made a major comeback in the last year, favouring thick, manicured styles to help frame the face.

Eleanor’s Tip: When it comes to creating serious #browenvy, Eleanor recommends filling in brows with a brow pencil or brow powder is a must. She’s also a big fan of brow gel, suggesting results will be life changing.

Lulu Loves: Team Lulu loves a perfectly set brow, and often use Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade to fill in and create the illusion of thicker brows. This water-proof formula is resistant against smudges and sliding, while the application is smooth and effortless.

Those who prefer a low maintenance application will love Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Gel as it involves a quick brush on application, a subtle pigmented shade, and a strong hold perfect for all day wear.

Beauty Trend: No Makeup Makeup

When it comes to the face, minimalist makeup coverage is very on trend, creating an empowering message to women that skin should healthy and only enhanced by makeup, never masked.

Eleanor’s Tip: With a beautiful, glowing complexion, Elleanor recommends a light layer of foundation, with a touch of highlighter on the high points of the face to create a healthy, youthful glow.

Lulu Loves: For a smooth, even coverage, Lulu loves ModelCo Fluidsplash Foundation as it features a 3-1 formula to prime, conceal and provide long lasting coverage. For a little extra shimmer, highlight the cheekbones, nose bridge and cupid bow with ModelCo Luminosity Shimmer Whip.
