If don’t already know, Autumn/Winter 2018 is all about being visually versatile with your makeup.
The season’s trend calls for a little experimentation. Stand out with textures like matte, satin and shiny, or go bold by highlighting the eyes. If you prefer, lips can stay muted. But a little bold tint won’t hurt either.
Here are eight of the latest makeup products that will help you stay on trend.
Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse
Ready for modern matte lip colour that’s as chill as an afternoon record-shopping session? Whipped to airy perfection, Lo-Fi Lip Mousse is a weightless, buildable, waterproof lip colour. It provides high-impact colour with a velvety soft finish that feels like you’re wearing nothing. The plush matte texture is very of-the-moment, and the application is effortless. This buildable formula lets you control the colour and keep it where you want from sheer to full coverage.
Dior The Glow Face Palette
This Face Palette is a secret weapon, with ultra-fusional textures and a concentration of mother-of-pearl that weightlessly adds a veil of light, thereby providing a natural, radiant glow. The lighter shades can be gently patted on to highlight the face. The pale pink immediately awakens a dull complexion. To warm up the face, just layer on with the bronzing powder.
MAC Chromagraphic Pencil
It’s all about the eyes: bold, powerful, punk rock and smoky with a romantic twist. The Chromagraphic Pencil is a pigment-rich creamy pencil ideal as a liner or to outline and define designs. Provides a bold, intensely smooth application with a well-defined, pigment-rich line. So, you can create sleek graphic lines or defined designs by adding in more colour and thickness to the eye makeup.
Chanel Les 4 Ombres
Focusing on texture has led Lucia Pica to consider how, in painting, matte pigments are used to trigger specific emotions. In the Apotheosis Le Mat de Chanel collection, the rich taupes, deep browns, light mauves and powerful blues of this eyeshadow palette reflect a sense of strength and contentment, while their velvety finish has a fine, watercolour-like effect.
Laneige Tin Tint Balm
To create the perfect gradient lips, lip tints have become all the rage and the hallmark of the lip tint is the result of a brighter colour on the inside and fades lighter to the edge of the lips, imparting a more natural look than lipstick. With its thin texture, rich in moisture and colour, this Tint Balm is one of the most versatile and hydrating lip product while still giving lips a juicy look and long-lasting colour.
Nars 7 Deadly Sins Audacious Lipstick Palette
Inspired by the seven deadly sins, the limited edition 7 Deadly Sins Audacious Lipstick Palettes features seven new shades – from brazen berries to smouldering neutrals. The palette comes equipped with a portable lip brush for on-the-go application. The high-impact pigments deliver intense colour in a soft-matte finish without bleeding or feathering.
Mamonde Creamy Tint Collection
The Mamonde Creamy Tint Collection offers you a myriad of textures and intensities from the Creamy Tint Colour Balm Light, Creamy Tint Colour Balm Intense (pictured), My Lips But Better and Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip. The Light Colour Balms are suitable for women who are new to makeup or those who prefer having natural lip makeup, while the Intense, offers bolder tones for your lips. You can use My Lips But Better as a base colour and top it up with the Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip to personalise your lip colour to whatever you fancy.
Sephora Collection Feline Instinct 12 Eyeshadow Palette
To awaken your animal instincts, Sephora has created sultry cat eyes and savage looks with two new ravishing eyeshadow palettes. The first contains 12 smoky shades reminiscent of a dark jungle night, with a dusky blue, starry black, and blue-toned gray. The second features 12 warm shades inspired by the savanna, ranging from a tender pink to an earthy brown. It comes with a dual-ended brush and a convenient brush-cleaning sponge that makes it quick and easy to clean between colours.
