Beauty Report

This season’s beauty trends came both pretty and punky (and with a little dash of Kim Kardashian.) These are our five favourites.

Mara Hoffman and Badgley Mischka, Fall/Winter 2014, All Over Press.

PEDAL TO THE METAL
Ever since the nail game was blown wide open a few years ago, countless new formulations have hit the market, the most exciting of which is the way metallics look. As a result, molten metals, intense glitter and chrome finishes featured all over the catwalks, at Proenza Schouler, Suno and Meadham Kirchhoff to name three. Badgley Mischka mixed a liquid mercury colour with a glitter half-moon, and Mara Hoffman went simple and short with a near-matt gold. 

Givenchy and Valentino, Fall/Winter 2014, All Over Press.

SHAPE SHIFTER
Once a shadowy (literally and metaphorically) secret amongst makeup artists and Kim Kardashian (before she Instagrammed the entire process), the art of contouring is now out in the open. Whether you want to go down the road of Kardashian-level shading all over the face, or simply use an array of taupe eyeshadows to subtly reshape your eyes (see Givenchy and Marc Jacobs), make sure you invest in good brushes. For that glowing and ethereal look (see Valentino and Erdem), simply dab a little liquid highlighter onto your cheekbones, temples and Cupid’s bow.

Prada and Gucci, Fall/Winter 2014, All Over Press.

EXTREME LASHES
It’s official: false eyelashes ain’t just for evenings out any more. Better add a few extra minutes to your morning routine if you want the doll-like prettiness of extra-long falsies for day, as seen at Versace, Rochas and Gucci. If eyelash glue isn’t your thing, don’t despair. The clumpy lashes seen at Prada and Missoni do the trick, and are really easy to do – just load up on mascara. It screams rebel, but feels oddly feminine at the same time.

Fendi and Marc by Marc Jacobs, Fall/Winter 2014, All Over Press.

BRAID NEW WORLD
From pretty to punky, braids dominated the catwalk this season. If the circular cornrow braids at Alexander McQueen will appeal to those with a flair for drama, the pigtails at Givenchy and Marc by Marc Jacobs looked surprisingly grown-up thanks to the tighter plait and, in the case of Givenchy, being tied into a knot. By the same token, Dolce & Gabbana twisted braids into buns and, if you look closely, the woven ponytails at Fendi were essentially an abstraction of plaiting!

Carven and Alexander Wang, Fall/Winter 2014, All Over Press.

SWEPT AWAY
