12 best beauty trends for autumn/winter 2014
12 best beauty trends for autumn/winter 2014
1/32 Trend 1: Baby Blues
We haven't seen this much blue since the 80s, but autumn winter 2014 tones are bold and modern. Blue was bright and fierce with electric blue winged liner at Dior, a strong line of blue on lower lashes at Giles, aquamarine liner at Temperley, and a wash of petrol blue on the eyes at Julien McDonald. Get the look with Rimmel Kate Eyeshadow Stick in Electric Sapphire and NYX Gel Liner & Smudger in Daring Danielle.
Rimmel Kate Eyeshadow Stick in Electric Sapphire £4.49, thisisbeautymart
2/32 NYX Gel Liner & Smudger in Daring Danielle
3/32 Trend 2: Bambi lashes
A modern 60s baby-doll lash, reminiscent of a doe-eyed Twiggy, was the look at Versace, Prada, Gucci and Rochas. Top and bottom lashes were saturated in lengthening mascara. Get the look with Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara or Becca Ultimate Lengthening Mascara.
Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara £18.50, thisisbeautymart.com
4/32 Becca Ultimate Lengthening Mascara
5/32 Trend 3: Signature Liner
If you like a strong eye, make liner your signature look this season with feathery flicks or a feline cat-eye. Zac Posen teamed a rebellious black liner with a scarlet lip, while Marc Jacobs daringly wrapped eyes in kohl and liner. Get the look with Benefit Bad Gal Liner Extra Black Waterproof Eye Pencil and Urban Decay.
Benefit Bad Gal Liner Extra Black Waterproof Eye Pencil £15.50, benefitcosmetics.co.uk
6/32 Urban Decay Ink for Eyes Waterproof Precision Eye Pen in Perversion
7/32 Trend 4: Morning-after eyes
If you don't have the steady hand for this season's winged liner, then carefully dishevelled, slept-in, smudged-in, morning-after kohl eyes are for you. Antonio Beradi, Peter Som and Iceberg all sent girls down the runway wearing the lived-in look. And there were smudged smokey greys and midnight hues at Tom Ford and Roberto Cavelli. Get the look with MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder (you don't want a waterproof eyeliner here), Too Faced Smokey Eye Shadow Collection and Clinique All About Shadow Quad in Smoke and Mirrors.

10/32 Trend 5: Off-Duty Ballerina
The off-duty ballerina look seen at Diane von Furstenberg, Prada and Erdem blended muted mauves and lilacs with soft neutrals and pale pinks on porcelain skin, with subtle eyes, softly tinted lips, flushed cheeks and fluttery lashes. Get the look with Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow 5-Color Palette in 06 Currant Desire and Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in 05 Violet – use it dry for a soft look, or wet for a more dramatic look.

12/32 Trend 6: Metallics and Shimmer

At David Koma eyes were silvery grey with a hint of violet on the lash line for definition. Get the look with HEMA Metallic Eyemousse in Nude, NYX Eyeshadow in Irises, Delilah Colour Intense Powder Eyeshadow in Forest and Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Sparkle Shadow + Liner in Thunderstorm.

If the black smokey eye is too bold a look, then this season's soft smokey nudes will be perfect for you. Seen at Viktor & Rolf, Marni and Ralph Lauren, you can go from dusky soft pinks and nudes through to warmer browns. Move from daytime creamy mattes to rich metallics at night – the intensity is up to you. Get the look with Bobbi Brown Smokey Nudes Eye Palette or Cargo Essential Eyeshadow Palette in Dark Neutral.

A classic autumnal lip shade is back again this season in different textures. The berry lip was seen glossy, ultra matte and as a rich burgundy stain at Nanette Lepore, Max Mara, Narcisco Rodriguez, Chalayan and Rebecca Minkoff. Sometimes teamed with a rich berry nail, or given a punky edge with gold metallic nails. Get the look with Charlotte Tilbury Matt Revolution Luminous Modern-Matte Long-Lasting Lipstick in Glastonberry, Daniel Sandler Luxury Matte Lipstick in Casablanca, or DHC Premium Lipstick in RS107.

24/32 Trend 10: Natural Beauty
There is no stronger statement in beauty than making no statement at all – but the fresh, radiant, flawless, no make-up look, actually takes rather a lot of doing. Clear skin, undone lashes and lips, this is healthy, sporty, glossy radiance at its most polished, and was seen at Jil Sander, Alberta Ferretti, Alexander Wang, Lacoste, Marios Scwab and Christopher Kane. Get the look with Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Make-up, Clarins True Radiance Perfect Skin Foundation, or Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector mixed with your usual foundation.
