Hair and beauty trends can be fickle and sometimes difficult to duplicate in the real world, but choosing the right one to channel can take your look up a notch with very little effort. Here are the best styles to try at home this season without the fear of looking like a hot mess.
This metallic neutral is the go-to beauty look for statement eyes this season. As seen at Chanel, this ‘70s throwback to Studio 54 disco divas is the perfect complement for any evening look and works well with any eye color. Choose a shimmery, metallic shade and use your finger to blend well all over the lid to get the desired effect. Combine with bronzer across the temples and cheekbones and nude lips to tie the look together.
Flawless, dewy skin was all over the runways earlier this year, most notably at Isabel Marant and Balmain. Natural skin with a healthy flush is all you need for this look so keep eyes and lips clean and let your skin do the talking. Use sheer moisturizing products like a cream blush or highlighter and a beauty mist to create this easy daytime look.
Supermodels like Adwoa Aboah and Erin Heatherton’s natural freckles have turned speckled skin into a major trend, with flushed cheeks with a smattering of freckles seen on runways at Missoni and Loewe. Makeup artists created this simple yet effective look with a brown eyeliner pen or pencil dotted along the bridge of the nose and across the cheeks to add to or enhance any existing freckles. Add a swash of pink blush across the top of your freckles to warm the face and bring this sun-kissed look to life.
Bold brows have been on trend for quite some time now, but this season the models at Rochas sported brows that were bigger and bushier than ever before. Think ungroomed boyish brows à la teenage Brooke Shields. Stay away from waxing or tweezing and use a tinted eyebrow gel to amplify your natural brows to recreate this raw beauty look.
This ethereal nymph-like makeup from Brock Collection is a beautiful trend that is simple to recreate and easy to wear. Cloud eyes with matte velvety brown shades and blend out for a delicately soft but striking look that will elevate and add sophistication.
As seen at Chanel and Sportmax, the messy top knot is the effort-free up-do of the moment. Keep the top knot towards the crown of your head to avoid a sloppy low bun and allow the added height to elongate your neck and enhance your cheekbones. Slick back flyaways with hairspray but keep the knot undone and relaxed.
Alexander McQueen showcased slicked back, post-pool plaits on the models at their autumn/winter ‘18 runway show. Channel this classic style but keep it up-to-date with wet look hair in a single plait with comb marks from the hairline.
