Autumn/Winter 2010

It's Autumn here in Australia and pretty soon Winter will be upon us, so what's on trend for this season....

Taupe: creamy, soft, chocolate milk, hues.  As seen here in the Chanel Taupe range.  For ethereal, vintage glam give this a go but please if you delve into the taupe trend, keep nails short and neat, taupe colour on long nails will leave you looking like a Grandma.

One for colour, I personally prefer the new Hong Kong range from O.P.I 

As seen in the D&G runway in Milan, the look is classic. Beautifully stained crimson lips, with winged eyeliner.  Nudes, neutrals, bronze, gold, browns are all IN for this season.  Keep eyes golden and simple and lips with a pop of colour
Be careful, not to overdo the lip, no lipliner here girls.  You can recreate the look using Benefits Benetint and a crimson gloss like Mac's tinted lipglass in Russian Red - both available in Myer.


Go for a sultry brown smokey eye with a delicious nude pout!  As seen here on Diane Kruger at the Oscars.  
Keep complexions creamy and even with peachy cheeks. Love this look for the Michael Kors runway

HOT TIP: balance is key -  less eye colour/more lip OR more eye colour/less lip
Forget thin, over tweezed, over plucked eyebrows.  Keep them natural yet bold - brush upward, fill in any gaps and if they are unruly, set with clear mascara or brow gel. 

HOT TIP: very thin eyebrows will make your appearance more aged. Soft, fuller brows shaped well looks youthful and frames the face beautifully.
