Fall/Winter Make-up trends 2011

Every season has a new set of trends and since it's now fall and winter is fast approaching then it's time to discuss the trends that are upon us.

Think Eyebrows
Eyebrows shape the face so a thicker brow will definitely do this. It is a very natural look and also easier to maintain than the over plucked look that we are used to seeing. It can be difficult to grow back your eyebrows but once this is done then all you have to do is pluck the strays. Thick eyebrows were seen on the runways of Alexander Wang, Oscar de la Renta and Jean Paul Gaultier.

Eyeliner is back...or was it ever really gone. It varies from thin winged eye lines to weirdly thick lines that almost covers the lid. Giorgio Armani and Gianfrance Ferre  displayed more classic versions of this trend, while Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton went for more dramatic versions.

Varicoloured Smoked Eyes
Who doesn't love a smokey eye? And what better way to do this than be changing from the usual grey's and black's. The shades of the eyeshadows used have changed. Chloe used the classic version of the smokey eye, while the runways of Narciso Rodriguez and Chanel modelled a more unusual look.

Vampy Lips
I am really loving this trend, which is usual as I usually go for a dark eye and nude lip but that is no more. Orange , red, burgundy and dark purples are all among the colours that are suitable for this trend. Yves Saint Laurent opted for this look on the runway paired with a flawless complexion.

Nude Makeup
One runway tells use to wear vampy style lips and smokey eyes and then we go to nude makeup...and that's all in some season . This is a difficult look to achieve. The makeup must appear as though it is not present even when it is. It is important to take care of your skin for this look. Also to have a foundation that perfectly suits your complexion and you will also need a neutral eyeshadow a minimal amount of eyeshadow and a nude lip-gloss.  This look was seen on the runways of Versace, Valentino and Alexander Wang.


I have been away from the blog for about a week now and it has been troubling me that I have missed so many posts, which was something that I did not want to happen. I have recently started a Masters programme so I am very busy with university.  So I have decided that I will now post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays instead of a post everyday. I will start posting every day when I have more time.
I am also doing a new round of Sites of the Week so if you have a suitable blog and want to exchange links then contact me at the address outlined above under the 'Contact' section.

If you have any requests for particular posts or make-up ideas also contact me.

A final message is a thank you to everyone who has been commenting and viewing while I have been busy.
