AW 2013 trends for make-up bring reflections of the past season and introduce new concepts. Pick the area you want to explore and set up your winter beauty plan.
The eyeliner is a must-have item to keep in your beauty cabinet or, even better, next to you in your everyday handbag. Instead of coloured options as in summer, opt for black in a skinny line along the top lashes. It will define your look in a subtle way. If you want an edgy look as in the Gucci show, create a punk style by adding a smudgy liner under the eyes. Chanel showcased the liner with a shining effect. The graphic-defined eyes as seen at the Anna Sui runway show is a creative option.
Don’t forget to put some effort on grooming your brow to get a stronger look. (Learn how to do it in our 5 tips page.)
Having the lips coloured in red is a tradition in winter time. To get the beauty mode of the season, replace the finish matte lipstick for a glossy effect, or stained rather than painted. Dior’s colour diffusion from the inside, Dolce & Gabbana deep red or the shining red of Marc by Marc Jacobs will complement your look.
Paint your lips and eyes, but skip the cheeks. Don’t forget to follow the undeniable sobriety of the moment. Go for a ladylike look to show off your attitude.
Flawless skin is the main beauty pursuit of this season and the ‘no make-up’ effect is still in vogue, but during winter the finished skin gets a velvet covering. Prepare your complexion by adding foundation with extra care and dust your face with the perfect powder to conquer the effect.
Chloe and Ralph Lauren created the perfect skin glow. Rag & Bone highlighted the brows on pale skin.
The retro volume with fuzzy curls combed to the side spotted at the Bottega Veneta show is a big hit to be paired with your refined look. Givenchy dyed it close to the head for an aesthetic sense and Jean Paul Gaultier assumed his grunge DNA with a mullet haircut. Too wild for you? Why not wig up?
