Autumn / Winter Makeup Trends 2014

1. BOLD BROWS  

How to get the Bold Eyebrows Trend

This certainly isn't a new trend, but apparently it's not going away any time soon. It's NOT okay to forget to pluck the mono-brow, nor is it an invitation to draw two giant slugs above the eyes with a marker pen.
Bold brows such as Cara Delevingne's are natural and soft looking. To fill in my eyebrows I simply use a cheap matte eyeshadow applied with a MAC 208 eyebrow brush, but here are some alternatives:

 




2. METALLICS

Metallic Eyeshadows trend 2014

3. DARK WINTER NAILS

Dark Grey Green Nail Polish Trend 2014

I've seen quite a lot of greys and deep greens about, which I'm absolutely looooving!! Totally not something I would usually go for but definitely something I'm going to be wearing!
Please check out these gorgeous shades (ps. the Ciate Vintage is on my shopping list):

 





4. BERRY LIPS

Rich reds and deep berry shades have been a hit on the runway ...and personally I think they are always a hit at this time of year. Don't be afraid of strong colour, just go for it! 







5. BIG LASHES

Big Lashes Trend 2014 - false eyelashes mascara

As I'm not blessed with baby doll lashes, I tend to go for the false versions (which certainly isn't cheating in my humble opinion!).  Here are some ways to achieve this look:
