With these bargains it takes little effort to go with the beauty trends of autumn 2012:
1. Catrice Eyebrow Stylist “Date with Ashton” (3,49€)
Thick, almost bushy eyebrows are not a completely new and innovative trend, but this fall they are everywhere. I’m a huge fan of natural brows and if mother nature hasn’t given you a lot in that department, make use of a powder or a hard eyebrow pencil. This ashy nuance does not only suit blondes and in my opinion just the name is a good reason to buy it!
2. Maybelline Color Tattoo “On and on Bronze” (7,25€)
This creme eyeshadow looks amazing even solo, and as a base it is great at intensifying warm shimmery powder shadows. Therefore, it’s the perfect base for another big autumn trend: bronzy smokey eyes!
3. Essie “Bahama Mama” (7,95€)
Warm, deep plums belong to autumn and winter, almost like warm scarves and candles. This polish with its weirdly summery name is beautiful, but it does take a few coats and good top coat.
4. Essence Geleyliner “Midnight in Paris” (2,95€)
At the office the dark eyeliner needn’t necessarily be as thick as Lana del Rey, but there is hardly a more classic technique to make your eyes stand out. For a sixties look thick black liner is essential. For beginners gel liner with an angled brush is probably easier to handle than liquid liner. Powdered down with black eyeshadow it lasts forever.
5. Rimmel London Kate Matte “107” (7,75€)
Purple und matte –what more can you ask for this fall!? Unfortunately matte textures are not very forgiving, so you’ll need to use a lip peeling, a heavy moisturizer, leave it to sink in, take off any residue with a tissue, line the lips and paint them with a lipliner of a similar colour and finally use a brush to apply the lipstick precisely.
6. Elf Eyelash Curler (4,79€)
The natural look is once again a huge trend this fall. For a modern look you should skip mascara! BB-Cream, Concealer, a little blush and curled lashes — you’ll be done in less than five minutes!
7. Maxfactor “False Lash Effect” Gold Edition (9,95€)
However, for a dramatic eye make up, you need dramatic, flashy lashes. That’s where this classic mascara comes in handy! By the way, it is the same product as the American Covergirl Lash Blast, it’s just the European equivalent.
8. Catrice Blush “Rosewood Forest” (3,49€)
In the drugstore, this silky matte rosewood is completely unique. What would be a better fall look than slightly reddened cheeks like after a walk in the cool wind?? It’s utterly perfect for a natural version of snow white!
9. L’Oreal Indefectible “Permanent Khaki” (7,95€)
Green is a major trend this fall and suits brown and green eyes amazingly. The consistency of the L’Oreal indefectible eyeshadows reminds me a lot of the Armani Eyes to Kill shadows (and both brands are part of the same corporation). They are softly pressed pigments, which leave an intense shimmer on the eyelids. If you apply this colour in the outer corner and on the lower lashline with a smudge brush, it will look supermodern and subtle.
10. Catrice Nagellack “Copper Cabana” (2,49€)
Another summery name, but colourwise, this metallic rusty shade fits perfectly into the fall! It won’t suit every skintone, but if you can pull it of, go for “Copper Cabana”!
Unfortunately my writing feels as rusty as this colour, I’m awfully sorry about that and the length of this post, R-E-S-P-E-C-T if you’re still with me! I’m hoping to get the hang of it soon…
What do you think about these fall trends, do you like to try new things or would you rather stick to what you know suits you? Which trend do you find appealing?
