Our autumn makeup inspiration has come from Lily Collins, who is known for her edgy style and ‘out there’ eyebrows! She is currently making her way around Europe on the promo tour for her latest movie ‘Love Rosie’. One of our favourite looks from the tour has to be the floor length Elie Saab gown that looked stunning with her side sweeping waves and flawless autumnal makeup. Her big lashes and dark berry lips made the perfect combination. 

 

With the change of the seasons it is time to ditch those bright summer shades and instead adopt much darker, richer colours. Try out bold reds and berry hues combined with bambi lashes for a look with added impact:

 

The inspiration for her look was taken from 1950s Hollywood stars. Just think Elizabeth Taylor for a super glamorous look. Here is how you can create this sophisticated look yourself in only five very easy steps.

Step one: Apply your base as normal, remembering to blend foundation well for a flawless look.

Step two: On the eyelids apply a wash of violet for a tint of colour. Add a small amount of shimmer to the inner corners of your eyes to highlight the area before defining the eyes with black eyeliner.

Step three: Brush on two layers of jet black mascara to your lashes to finish the eyes off.2

Step four: Create a flush of colour on the cheeks by subtly applying a hint of blusher.

Step five: Finally, for the lips go for a strong berry shade which suits your skin tone. Making sure that you use a matching lip liner first so that the colour doesn’t bleed.

We are sure that with your Christmas party rapidly approaching, this look will guarantee that you stand out from the crowd as you ooze old school Hollywood glamour with an edgy twist.
