Fall season always produces the ‘It’ colour of the year (remember mustard yellow and wine red?), and it seems like this year, it’s gonna be blue. The runways of Kenzo, Temperly London, Christian Dior and so on spotted blue on the eyes as an accent colour, but really, it was Creatures of the Wind’s look, which used blue on the lower rim of the eyes that captured our attention. Cynthia Rowley also deserves a special mention for the innovative use of blue as an eyeliner, which gives this longtime look a new spin.
Fans of black eyeliner will have reason to rejoice as the cat eye enjoys a resurgence on this year’s fall runways. From the more retro interpretation at Cushnie et Ochs, to more dramatic versions at Karen Walker and Jean Paul Gaultier, and to a fresh and dewy take over at Roccobarocco, there is surely a style to please every girl. Meow!
Few can forget supermodel Twiggy’s iconic look, which placed emphasis on the lower lashes, creating a ethereal doll-like appearance. If you’ve always wanted to give this look a try, this is the season to do it, as clumped lashes appeared in full force on the runways of Saint Laurent, Marco de Vincenzo, Peter Som and so on. This might also be the only time when clumpy or smudged lashes could be more of a hit than a miss!
Brides who go by the motto ‘less is more’ will be delighted that natural nude makeup is still here to stay, as it was spotted across runways of Lacoste, Victoria Beckham, Isabel Marant and more. Given that this is a relatively lighter look and therefore offers less coverage for any blemishes, we suggest that you spend more of your energy on skincare so as to make sure your skin will be in tip top condition when your big day arrives!
Last but not least, perhaps the most relevant of this year’s fall makeup trends for our brides would be the pink palette that designers have been using on their runways. Feminine brides can take a leaf from Diane von Fürstenberg’s book and indulge in pastel shades of pink (first picture above). For cool brides, you can still play with this easy-to-wear shade with subtle brushes of pink on the cheeks, and a tinge of pink highlight on the eyes, as seen on Suno’s runway (second picture above). Just pair the look with sleek straight tresses to bring up the cool quotient.
