Feathery Lashes

From spider to wispy lashes, dramatic lashes have been trending all year. Not just a trend, fuller lashes make your eyes look larger, in turn, making you look more awake.  

Get The Look

When trying to achieve fuller lashes, make sure you coat both sides of your lashes with your mascara wand. If going for falsies, opt for a set that accentuates the natural shape of your eyes. Keep the rest of your make-up palette neutral, letting your lashes do most of the talking.

Filter-Proof Contour

The Kardashian effect has lasted really long and that’s because it leaves nothing to chance. If you contour right, you probably won’t need a filter when updating your Instagram.

Get The Look

After completing your base, apply a cream-based blush on the apple of your cheeks. Set it using a dash of translucent powder, sparingly. Use a decent, angled-brush to sculpt your cheeks by swiping a bronzer under the cheekbones and jawline. Finish by using a highlighter over your cheekbones.

You’re not done yet. A chiselled nose and chin is equally important as the cheeks. Start by contouring the sides of nose and putting a dab of highlighter in the middle. Use a drop of facial oil on your chin for that dash for luminosity. Finish with a liquid highlighter.

When your contour game is high, steer towards nude tones for your pout.

Bold, Yet Natural

There’s no denying that brows can instantly transform your look. If you have a long face, it’s ideal to go for longer brows with a high arch. Remember to keep it natural, especially if you have an oval-shaped face.

Get The Look

Opt for a brow stencil for that pin-worthy look. If you want to accentuate the natural shape of your brows, use small strokes to fill in your brows with a pencil. Brush and then set with a brow pomade. Don’t forget to highlight the brow bone for a lifted effect.

Dew-Like Skin

A clean base, minus the cakey layers is a sigh of relief. The dewy skin trend is all about letting your skin shine. This is ideal look for someone who thinks loves a clean, minimal look.

Get The Look

To get glossy skin, make sure your skin is well-hydrated and moisturised. Use a concealer to hide flaws. Seal with loose powder under your eyes as well as the T-zone. Use a liquid highlighter topped with solid highlighter to achieve that dewy look. Set it with setting spray to keep that glass-glow alive!

Perfect Your Pout

When it comes to lips, the world is your pantone. A trending look on the ramp,  two-toned lips (lower lip has more colour) is ideal for days you want to keep it natural. Be it powder pink or candy pop, you can’t go wrong with the gloss trend this fall. If you love matte, go deeper with wine and berry shades.

Get The Look

Make sure your lips are primed to achieve the perfect look. Follow the natural line of your lips to fill in your lips. Then fill with colour. For daytime, a matte-finish lipstick is ideal. Feel free to add a swipe of gloss in evenings.
