2017 Autumn Makeup Trends

This autumn get ready to break free from the current no-makeup makeup: with electric eyeshadows sweeping across the eyes, berry lipsticks being popular, and metallic pigments painted artistically across the face.

1) Heavy Metal

Heavy metal

This fall expect a range of colourful eyeshadows to trend. The main key texture – this season will be metallic in a variety of shades. Metallics will be swept across your eyelids creating a beauty statement of strength. Expect gold, black and red shadows to be blended together combining beauty and strength.

2) Brandon Maxwell

Makeup 2

This eye look is both strong and unapologetic, creating a fierce black-and-metallic eyeshadow.

3) Balmain

Makeup 3

This African inspired fall collection from designer Olivier Rousteing was a mix of exotic furs and textiles, all created in a palette of rich, warm colours, metallics and ornate prints. This look is all about the eyeshadow: a punch of black cream shadow swept around the eye and extended along the lower lashline. Silver pigment can be dashed along the lower lashline, while the top lid can be accentuated with a dab of metallic copper. This look sends a message of strength – the woman who wears it is not be messed with.

4) Alex Mabille

Makeup 4

This season is all about touches of metallics: a little silver swept under the eye, a little copper pressed on the centre of the lid. You can paint a gold pigment across your eyelids in a brushstroke pattern. The rest of the face leave bare. The eyes are matched only in shine-factor by gold chrome nails.

5) Nicholas K

Makeup 5

Sleek hair and gold glitter eyes make up this look, with Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow transforming you into a Golden Goddess, lining both your upper and lower lashline. A little contouring can help enhance the overall warm glow of the look, finishing with a swipe of Apricot Lip Glaze, a pinky-nude shade with a slick finish.

6) Les Copains

Makeup 6

The smokey eye is still in, but this time with a copper twist. The 80s power suit equivalent for eye makeup, this look is perfect for that big night out or for occasions that require that little extra edginess, the copper added a really autumnal feel to your look.

7) Laura Biagiotti

Makeup 7

This golden look, draws upon yellow hues within both the eye makeup and nail design.

8) Christian Siriano

This look has created a burgundy eye or lip, drawing inspiration from the British gardens. The bold eye was achieved by layering a lip liner, the same lipstick, plus two eyeshadows.

14) Chloe

Makeup 14

The beauty look is going more punk this autumn, tracing and smudging black pencil and gel liner around the your lids. The line is ever so lightly flicked out, topped with gloss before hitting the runway.

15) Thierry Mugler

Makeup 15

This look had a futuristic element to it, with a nod to power dressing in the ‘80s. With slicked-back and side-parted hair this look has a slightly retro feel, the floating black liner fit for a starship!

16) Versace

Makeup 16

This Versace show debuted a new black shadow that’s somehow both matte and slick. It’s creamy and incredible to blend, drying completely!

17) Yves Saint Laurent

Makeup 16


Forget the bare face of the summer. This look incorporates a wing of messy black pigment, simply created by dipping your fingers in shockmascara, swiped it across your lids. This look draws upon the idea of needing to get ready in a hurry, which is a daily occurrence for many of us.

Instead of applying mascara in the way we're used to - root to tip – instead drag the wand along the tips of the lashes, going side to side and not necessarily coating each lash entirely.
