My favourite make-up trends for this season (A/W 2011-2012)

Fall/Autumn-Winter 2011-2012 make-up trends

Summer is over, and with the new season come new make-up trends.  The main trends in make-up for this season can be described as natural, elegant and sexy.  This fall and winter, every girl can find something suitable for her personality.

One of the main trends is definitely, the natural look:

Nude lips and bare face

Pink/nude lips are very popular, combined with barely-there makeup.  This fall you can forget about intense, bold coral or pink blushers.  Make sure you have a flawless face, by using the right shade of foundation or tinted moisturiser and a good concealer.  For this look do not overuse powder, looking natural is the key.

Natural eyebrows

Forget thin, over-plucked eyebrows.  This fall it's all about full, natural broad (almost bushy), brows. Neither too neat nor too messy.  So you should be more careful with your tweezers, but the shadows and brow pencils may also come in handy.

Warm colours

This season’s trend is warm fall makeup in brown and orange colours that are perfectly suited for this time of year.  For a sophisticated look, just dust some medium-toned brown or beige matte eyeshadow on both the upper and lower lids.  


This fall, it's all about simplicity and clean lines.  This season eyeliner has a retro look, clean/neat eyeliner and double eyeliner.  This eye makeup is reminiscent of the iconic model Twiggy!  This look is simple, yet very sexy.

Bold lips

Bold-coloured lips are also a major seasonal trend.  All shades of red are very popular this fall.  I recommend combining this bold look with natural eye makeup.
