Guest Post: Fall Fashion Week Beauty Trends

Thanks to Justine, I (Jessica Anna at A So Called Beauty Blog) have the fantastic opportunity to write a post for her wonderful blog. I'm a huge fan of fashion shows and anything to do with the runway, so as you can imagine the beauty trends that were showcased this year, were definitely on my radar. Today, I'm going to share the top 5 beauty trends of fall from this seasons spectacular fashion shows. Enjoy!

5. Metallic/Shimmery Eyes

Paying homage to our childhoods when we painted our eye lids with the most outrageous shimmery or metallic eye shadows (we've all been there), this season has showcased some paired down, rather chic versions of a slight shimmer or metallic eye. It was a tremendous trend this year and really helped to complete the looks of all the collections it was used in. 

4. Extra-Long Lashes

Otherwise known as spider lashes or the 'twiggy eye', a vivacious trend this season saw many models with extra long lashes as the centrepiece of their make-up looks. It was a definite hit at shows like Rochas, where the collection really suited the cute, bold eye created by those super long lashes.

3. The Smokey Eye

A trend that takes all collections to the next level and adds a definitive intensity to any look is most certainly the smokey eye. It's been around for a long time, it just dips in and out of fashion, but I can safely say it's a very prominent trend right now and was key to the impact of Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang's amazing shows.

2. Dewy, Natural Skin
Flesh tones were very popular this season among designers who definitely felt their collections could do well with a toned down, almost non-existent make-up look. Givenchy and Giambatti Valli were partakers in the trend, and Marc Jacobs took his to the next level with no-make up at all. It's very clear that dewy, natural looking skin was a real hit on the runways. I for one am a big fan of flesh tones and natural looks, as they're light, care free and always chic.

1. The infamous Red Lip
Vogue have described it as the return of the red lip, and this infamous trend, sported by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, was indeed back on the runways and red carpets this season. Back in a big way. Anna Sui, Zac Posen and many others implemented the red lip to brighten up and add sophistication to their ladies. It did just that and so much more; it was utterly beautiful and marvellous to see again.

I hope you've enjoyed reading about these fabulous Fall trends straight from the runways in New York, Paris, Milan and London. I've certainly enjoyed sharing them with you and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below and on my blog. Thanks to Justine for allowing me to do this and I hope to hear from some of you soon!

  1. Extra long lashes is a trend I'm especially fond of as well as smokey eyes - although I'm not too good at the latter, in fact I'm terrible at it haha! :)
